Gail Koger - Vexing Voss - Coletti Warlords #3

How do I love this book let me count the ways…

First, the title. I have a thing about titles, so many of them feel like they were computer-generated. Push three buttons and then bingo! it generates your title. Or marketing picks the title, riffing off whatever the latest bestseller is. (Think of all the 50 shades of fill in the blank you’ve run into.) I like titles that actually tie into the story. Ones that months or years down the way when I think o

sometimes when you read a lot of paranormal romance it can seem like there is nothing more out there that you have not already seen. i can honestly say that Gail koger is that something new. this is the third book that i have read from this author and in her Colletti Warrior series,which i adore. i loved this book, with the difference between the military trained Warrior hero and the somewhat criminally minded but law abididing/gun toting trouble magnet that is the heroine, you could not help bu ...more
Vexing Voss is #3 in the Coletti Warlords series, and the first published by Loose ID. This book still has the over-the-top great action, humour and oddball alien characters as the previous two books, just with added smoothness due to better editing.

Our heroine is Zoey Jones, cousin of Kaylee Jones from book #1 Just My Luck and the hero is Voss, the Overlord's Battle Commander. Zarek the Overlord is the hero of book #2 The Warlord's Comeuppance and pops in occasionally to spice things up.

Very over the top, but entertaining

It was a good story. But there was so much action every second of the story. The heroine would get into one situation and then another, literally every second of the book. It was a bit over the top and so was her attitude that I kinda rolled my eyes most of the 2nd half of the book. The prose was choppy and the characters were one-dimensional. Zoey had great psychic abilities and was fearless and sassy, but eventually out got to be a bit much. Voss was a macho

The Romance Review

Snarky heroine and chest-beating alpha male mixed with flesh eating aliens up your alley? How about a tentacle penis that can rock your world? Where have I been that I've missed Ms Koger's books? This is the first book I've read of hers and I'm completely hooked. VEXING VOSS is the third in her Coletti Warlords series. After reading this book, I am going to have to buy the first two and read them. This book is on my must read list.

First, I love this series, you can read this as a standalone,but it really adds to the story to know more of the history of the characters, war and the worlds etc..

This series just continues to get better and better. The characters are strong, smart and funny! These stories are all well written, with an interesting world, beings and interactions. The humor is fabulous. Plus, the couples are HOT.

If you love sci-fi romance with just the perfect amount of hotness, humor and strange beings. This i

What a ride! All the trademarks of a truly great sci-fi romance are alpha male - check! Strong, alpha heroine with an attitude - check! Very interesting sci-fi story - check! Throw in some very funny, original, laugh out loud situations that the heroine gets herself into and we have a book that is awesome!
Loved it! I could not put this one down. Zoey is a kick ass, spunky chick with a mouth on her that won't stop. Voss is one scary, oh so yummy guy who surprisingly is not easily ruffled.

The story is fast paced with tons of predicaments and all the suspense you could want, mixed in with some sexy stuff. This sci-fi was enough to make my little reading heart dance about with joy.

Enjoyed this ride very much, thanks!!
I was tipped off about a really good Sci-Fi Romance by a fellow reader from Good Reads who shares my interests and yeah, baby am I glad I heeded her recommendation. I've never had so much fun with a Sci-Fi Romance in my life. It had all these crazy wonderful elements going for it and I ended all hopped up on those happy endorphins that laughter, sizzling passion, awesome characters and world building can give you.

Cautionary note: This is not for those high-minded folk who take their Sci-Fi too

Zoey's commander father is looking to get ahead. He wants to use her abilities to become ruling Commander. Zoey is a powerful psychic. She can control minds& kill with just a thought- a great asset in battle-only Zoey refuses to fall into line. Voss is the Overlord Commander- one of the most powerful Coletti warriors. He penetrates Zoey's mind shields and claims her for his own, but Zoey is having none of that.

Zoey is one of greatest heroines I've ever read. Smart,resourceful, and naughty. Tro

Luckily I stumbled onto this gem of a book during a search of Amazon. I absolutely love this book. I've already re-read it and will be reading anything I can find by this author. I would say that fans of Gini Koch, Shelly Laurenston/GA Aiken, S E Smith and Suzanne Wright will love her work. I've added this title to the following Goodreads lists: Humorous Paranormal Books and Best ADULT Urban Fantasy and Paranormal Romance. If you loved it as much as me please vote for Vexing Voss on these lists. ...more

What do I think? I love this book, I could not put it down. Non stop action, Best Alpha Female character ever(!) and gotta love 'em side characters of family, new best buds and villains (how many ways can the heroine kill the villain? Gail covered most of them)

This is a read over and over again (5 and counting), stay up to 3am, when going through story withdrawals; pull this out - book! You will never get tired of reading this.

Vexing Voss is a keeper if your like me and you love a good sci-fi romance, this is one of those you are happy you bought. I found myself smiling as I read this book (I love when that happens) I love it when a book like this one has a great story, (alternate worlds but you don't need a dictionary to keep it all straight)and the H and h don't get lost in the world building instead, they are the story.

Gail - love the continuation of this series. You take your readers on a roller coaster ride which is full of twist and turns. The scenes are dynamic and full of action. This is an intense and passionate read that will keep you turning page after page, you just have to know what Zoey will do next in her campaign to get Voss to drop his pursuit. If you are looking to laugh out loud then this is a book you should try.

I was actually hooked on this book the moment I set eyes on the rock hard abs of the model on this cover! The prologue on the preview of the book reeled me in, this book was such an exciting read. Vexing Voss has a strong heroine that isn't going to take any crap, a total alpha hero, and a wild science fiction plot that left me wanting to get my hands on the next book, yesterday! And the skunk perfume had me laughing my you know what off!

This was so much fun! A smart ass kick-butt heroine and constant action with sexy possessive alien alphas, what more could you ask for. Snark aplenty. Loved it. Must read the other two books.

This book had lots of action from the very beginning. I loved how spunky Zoey is. Her skunk perfume is the best! Voss is a totally hot alpha male, love him! This is a must read! Can't wait for more!
Zoey Jones has successfully avoided being kidnapped by the Coletti aliens who have promised to protect Earth from the Tai-Kok in exchange for brides. Most of her psychic relatives have already been taken and forced to marry the warriors to help repopulate their dwindling population but not Zoey. Nope. She's used every trick up her sleeve to stay under the radar. Until now.

Voss, Zarek's second in command, has been hunting an Earther female who he feels would make a suitable mate. She's been able

I ADORE Gail Koger and anything she writes. This author has an amazing sense of humor and character. Such hilarious antics but the books don't get overwhelmed by the silly or the weird things that happen - we are in outer space and on abandoned or scary planets here people! She has this wonderfully creative way of taking all the creepy/disgusting and fun parts and mixing them so instead of going "ICK" and tossing the book you are laughing and loving this poor couple as they grapple their way thr ...more
Re-visiting the Jones and their Coletti Warlords, the magic's still there.

Four years ago, Kaylee Jones left earth, met her Coletti warlord and the universe hasn’t been the same. By the end of Just My Luck, it looked like Voss might have a Jones family member in his future. Unfortunately, for various reasons, Voss had to wait awhile for his story. Now the wait is over!

Zoey Jones may not be as much of a trouble magnet as her cousin Kaylee but it’s close. She uses a lot of ingenuity to try to stay

Alright, I was looking for a new book and Vexing Voss caught my eye. Paying $6.99 (it's down to $5.79 on amazon) for an ebook by an author unknown (to me) is pretty unheard of for me but I downloaded the sample and was hooked. The heroine was snarky and kicka**, take no prisoners. The hero a sexy determined alpha with some unusual skills (psychic seduction). It was a fast paced, action packed space romp with steamy sex scenes, great fight scenes, and was literally full of laugh out loud moments. ...more
4 1/2--5 stars. What a fun and entertaining read! Definitely not the typical "sappy" romance. Probably one of my all time favorite heroines-- she's strong, sarcastic, caring and witty. It's a story full of no-mess alpha males--including the hero-- who rarely show their softer side, but when they do, it's quite tender. Lots of action--I mean LOTS. Very funny at times. Romance is not "in your face", but very spicy. The only reason I did not give it a solid 5 stars was because I felt the plot moved ...more

I can ignore a bit of arrogance and autocratic behaviour in an alpha male stereotype, but Voss and his pals are downright rude, patronising, and Abusive.

You say no? How about I force mental/physical sex on you. Or jerk you around physically, pulling your hair, threatening you with rape if you don't be a good girl and do what I tell you? Or treat you like you're a stupid dog without an iota of intelligence. All the nonsense about "coletti warlords protect and cherish their mates" just sounds lik

I loved this story and I hope to read more of this series in the future! I loved the chemistry between Voss and Zoey! I also loved how she stood up for herself! I totally recommend this book!

Voss is the Coletti Battle Commander, however it will take all of his battle acumen, patience, and much much more to handle Zoey Jones. Zoey is a Siren - a human with psychic powers - who is to be mated to Voss who choose her as his own. Voss has been tracking Zoey for four years which is in itself a feat. N

I have been hanging out for this book for ages and I wasn't disappointed. It is fantastic; it is action packed and has great characters.

Gail’s books are always very fast moving going from one action packed scene to another. In this book I found Gail had really refined her writing skills and it was better than ever. The scenes flowed that much more effortlessly into each other. Don’t get me wrong her previous books are fantastic; but from a reader perspective this

I've waited ages for another installment in this series and after reading it I'm now hanging for another :)
Smart mouthed kick-ass women and big growly alpha males, that's what the Coletti Warlords series is made from.
Amusing and violent at the same time. There is more fighting and tumbling from one disaster to another than hot sex in this book. I would have liked Voss and Zoey to maybe get some quiet quality time with each other but that never really happened. She spent most of the time being sa

Its been a while since I had a book that had my laughing all night long as I was reading it. I loved how Voss slowly learns he can't tame his little while she devil, but if he's smart he can work with her to achieve the same goals.

I stumbled on this book after seeing it recommended in a PNR thread. It's the first book I've read by this author and though I didn't read books 1 & 2 in the series, I was still able to follow the story.

I really enjoyed the action, humor, and world-setting --- I am a fan of Star Trek, Star Wars, Battlestar Gallactica, and the like --- so I had a ton of fun imagining all the different alien races mentioned in the book. This was a nice change for me from the usual vampire PNR book.

The 3rd book in the Coletti Warrior series, Vexing Voss has non-stop action and crazy characters that keeps you giggling. My favorite in the series is The Warlord's Comeuppance. If you enjoy zany comedic sci- fi romances, give Gail Koger books a try.

I was a 9-1-1 dispatcher for thirty-one years and to keep insanity at bay, I took up writing. Not to worry. The insanity isn’t catching – much. Other than the addiction to chocolate and the twitch in my left eye, I’m good. My current project is STEALING JIA - another Coletti Warlord story.
