Berit sets his mind on being part of a mission to Ligador to make sure the planet is habitable for humans. He’s ecstatic when his team is assigned to the task force. A delegation of Nadisc, a humanoid alien race, accompanies them, and passion ignites betw ...more

*sigh* I love Sci-fi romance but why does a humanoid alien have to have a “human” name such as TOM? Why not something I can’t begin to pronounce much less spell? Wouldn’t that be more realistic?
Nothing here about forced breeding or even remotely (human) mpreg. No non/dub con either.

Breeding stations are planets where a common enemy of two races breeds monsters/dinosaurs to unleash on unsuspecting planets and destroy local population. MC hunts the super crazy GMO dinosaurs and engages - on a regular basis - in mind boggling sex with tall, handsome, uber possessive and extremely well equipped Onri-like (Claimings, Tails, and Other Alien Artifacts) alien mate. What's not to love? :D

I'm always a bit..hesitant? to start a sci-fi romance, because you often get SO MUCH exposition and all these made up words to make it sound as alien as possible that it's just off-putting and boring (to me, at least), or it's like 90% action/plot and 10% romance (and I want the hot romance dammit!), that either way, I'm usually left a bit disappointed at the end of things.

SO NOT THE CASE with this story.

OMG. This book was astounding! This might be my favorite m/m sci-fi romance I have ever re
3.8 Stars

I don't know why I liked this, but I did. Berit is TSTL, and a bit of a prat. I don't understand why this alien is named TOM (while the rest of their species has difficult to pronounce names) or why he's so zen about his childish, asshole mate's behavior. Also, the science is confounding and sometimes just wrong.

Plus, you know, it's Jurassic spaaaaaaaaaaaace. And I didn't like any of those movies at all. (Blasphemy to some, I know. Don't judge me.)

Yet somehow it was kinda fun.
I did not really know what to expect from this book, but I thouroughly enjoyed it.

Berit is a great character - not really serious, takes himself too serious sometimes, very protective of his friends but definitely not all-knowing or able to do everything himself. especially at the beginning he is very dependend on Tom regarding his survival. but that is ok

Tom is more serious and very devoted to Berit. I loved those two together.

all in all, this was a fun read and I am looking forward to the nex

3.5 stars - Really enjoyed this one. Sci-Fi is one of my favorite genres, and this one just fit the bill perfectly, especially since it also included manhandling alphas and their stubborn mates. Definitely looking forward to the next installment.

I like Tom, I like Carson, I like the scary monsters and the rollicking adventures . . . but I didn't like Berit at all, and since he's the narrator it made it hard to enjoy the book.

Commander Berit Turner is a free-spirited kind of guy who makes no bones about enjoying sex, moving from partner to partner at will, never settling down with any one man. He’s also known for speaking his mind, mostly because he lacks any sort of filter between his brain and his mouth. Sometimes that gets him into trouble.

He and his best friend Carson are being sent on a mission to the planet of Ligador, to see how suitable the planet is for colonization. The concern is the possible presence of

okay.....cue drum roll people.......we have a winner.

By far this is one of the best m/m books i have read in awhile. I actually was not expecting alot from the blurb and for some reason I was expecting it to be short. Dont know how I got that stuck in my head.

So picture me ecstatically happy as the author takes their time to develop an alien world and alien creatures and yummy alien sex.

I am completely satisfied........this is like the equivalent to a decadent slice of triple choc mud cake. I a
20%: Most of the time captain Berit Turner seemed to behave like a hyperactive adolescent emotional wreck. Otherwise I enjoy the story.

30%: He's really not very bright. How did he survive even his first day of command without a nursemaid? This is annoying.

50%: Sigh. Berit seems to regress further. Good for him he found his nursemaid.

Well, I finished the book. I think, without the explicit sex it would be a good teen or young adult story.

Berit isn’t the usual type of commander, he has absolutely no filter and constantly gets himself into trouble but that doesn’t stop him from being a damn good commander. When he’s part of a mission tasked with determining if a planet is habitable, he’s forced to work with a delegation of Nadisc who’s commanding officer, Tom, has Berit tied up in all types of knots. When their mission goes horribly wrong, will they be able to survive the danger they’ve unintentionall

Sometimes I read a book and I feel a great swell of pity that the author has no one in their life that can tell them the truth. This is one of those times. This book is awful. I can understand why it was published. When it comes to romance novels, the only important thing is that someone sticks a penis in a butthole. That's the only requirement. And that's the same reason people read it and rate it any higher than the one star it deserves. But I still feel sad. Someone in this author's life prob ...more

On the one hand this story fits my bill: one of the MC is a brat as a brat can be and b/c it's some kind of B-movie story bordering to trash he's a slutty brat, so I should have enjoyed the fun wholeheartedly ... it's just that a long time into the first half I nearly move that story to my DNF shelf. In the end I glad I didn't but I had a hard time to forget that this juvenile, irresponsible guy is supposed to be a commander and then this story includes a strong female character - at least physi ...more

This novel started out interesting for me. I was actually somewhat put off by the very overt sexual thoughts in it by the main character. However, once it got into the story, I was hooked! I loved this. It’s like Jurrasic Park in space, and honestly, what could be better than that.

The characters are very well described and in depth. They have personalities that are easily differentiated. I’m also not a huge fan of reading first person (I think that’s mostly because it’s poorly done), but I bare

I found this an enjoyable, action-packed story, with more danger and excitement than I expected (also less sex, but that was okay). I think the strongest aspects of the story was the world-building, with some gruesome and horrific beasts on the planet that Commander Berit and his team must explore, and in the development of the Nadisc, an alien race who seem to be drawn to human mates.

I wasn't crazy about Berit's character--he was so childish sometimes that I had a hard time believing he would e

Got to love tail sex. This was a great book in that it didn't take itself to seriously. With murdering dinosaurs and bugs set to take over Earth that fact that there is a lot of humor and fun is what makes this book great. I love Berit as a roguish commander that doesn't always play by the rules and has no brain to mouth filter. Tom plays the more serious role and it is fun to watch him go all protective over Berit when he does something stupid. I'm really looking forward to more books in this s ...more

Very enjoyable read! The well written characters, erotic romance, and stellar world building hooked me early and kept me devouring the book. I didn't love that this is a set-up book so we'll be following these leads in book two when I prefer the romance wrapped up and a new couple for future books in series. Still, WELL worth reading!

Entertaining interspecies sci-fi romance with Jurassic Park action. There's some alpha-omega action, hinted mpreg possibilities, and unfortunately, no breeding which is what drew my attention and if I'd bothered to actually read the second paragraph of the blurb properly would have understood wasn't in the offering, but the brain saw the title and went running.

ETA: Tail sex
I have to admit that I picked this book without paying much attention to the blurb on Goodreads. The title sounded like the book would be an mpreg, and I just love them.

Anyways, the book is not and mpreg.

The book is an adventure. I read this book thinking the whole time that it reminded me a little of Jurassic Park. You have all kinds of engineered creatures after Berit and Tom. It is a non-stop rollercoaster ride. You never know who will survive or what else will pop out to attack.

Wow - what a fascinating story! I don't know where the author's come up with these ideas but this world (universe) was quite incredible. 2 books in the series (the next is Battle Stations) and I highly suggest reading both. They were quite entertaining and very sexy! The MC's were engaging, the main secondary characters were entertaining and the story was fast paced.
Too much fun with tails!!!
Great book. Lots of paranormal,sex,romance and action.
Alien action. Good aliens and bad.
Very good sci fi.
Don t know what else to say..
Good book ,well written, and a sequel.
What more do ya need?!
Lots of action in this one. Aliens, friendly and not, fated mates, with lots of sex, natch. The characters were on the annoying side of cute for me. I wanted to see how it ended though, so I kept reading.

Tom is quite an unusual name for an alien, especially since all of his comrades had names hard to pronounce or remember. Aside from that Tom was just fine, I liked him as a character and admired his infinite patience with his mate's childish behaviour. Berit was a brat, I'm not exactly fond of brats, fortunately he grew up a bit with the story.
Breeding stations had a very Jurassic Park feel about them. Some of the creatures were fun (not that I'd like to meet them in person) and others were just

I was supremely surprised by this book. It was sexy and scary and everything between. I couldn't' put it down even though I'm not a huge sci fi reader. Everything was so well described that I felt like I was right there in another world so far away from the one we live in.

Berit and Tom were an awesome team that go through quite a bit in a short amount of time and their abilities to get along during the crazy situations was great. This book reminds me very much so of what it would be lik

This is the setup for what seems to be a good series.

The Tashin planet and its queen need Earth for the queen to adequately reproduce the Tash'Ba, its creatures. They are an insectoid/reptilian species who are much more advanced than the Earth. After an initial contact 149 years prior, where the Tash'Ba offer technology in exchange for room on Earth - the Tash'Ba's are rejected.

This was a good starter book but fast- really fast at the beginning. In those first couple of chapters we meet the Nadiscs who are an alien species that are allied to humanity and work with them on exploration missions such as the one that Berit is about to go on as commander. Well, the Nadiscs he has partner up with him take an interest in them as mates- and we're talking after pretty much just meeting them. Right off the bat Tom is making his interest known and we get the feeling that it is ...more

2.5 Heart Review by Dan

I picked up this book because I enjoyed another book by the author, Despite The Odds, that I read and reviewed recently. I’m also a huge fan of science fiction, both hard and soft. I’m really not sure that this current book even does enough to make it soft sci-fi. A lot of the actions and activities seemed very unrealistic, in my opinion, and it kind of ruined the story for me.

I don’t want to bash, but let’s look at some examples. Half the crew is killed while the shuttles

Breeding Stations is the first book in the new Alliances series by Chris T. Kat and I think we are off to a nice start. I enjoyed the world building in particular here. The story focuses on three races, two who are allied and one who is the enemy. The real fight, however, is between the human and Nadisc teams and the horrible creatures the Tash’Ba have created. These creatures have been bred for maximum aggression and destruction, and I found their descriptions crea
