I can summon any woman with a look. They want me, but there’s only one I crave.

I shouldn’t have let her slip away.
She answers the door wearing next to nothing. I can’t tear my eyes away from her.
A short silk kimono skims her thighs. The delicate robe falls open. She’s teasing me.
Lace panties and a push-up bra lifts her breasts like an offering.

I found Avren pretty funny, he was one of the more serious auxem in some things, but you could grasp the caring and loving person he was inside.

Vannessa was a sassy one a little too afraid but who isn't after a lot of bad experiences in life.

I liked the plot it was pretty interesting and a little suspensful at some point I was like OMG so cool all this and I loved that this one as the others auxem novels, have little cameos of other terramates novels that was fantastic.

AVREN, is a fantastic story, the last book in Lisa Lace's Auxem series. AVREN is the fifth and youngest brother of the five Auxem Princes. He's a genetic scientist determined to finally put an end to their race's suffering by attempting to modify their DNA. The best geneticist in the galaxy just happens to be his ex. The ex her chose her career over him and broke his heart.

Vanessa values her career as a geneticist above all else as it provides her with the independence she needs to make her own

Avren was a bit surprised when Vanessa answered the door barely clothed! She was his ex and they had not seen each other for some time. Vanessa was a molecular geneticist, one of the best in the galaxy. Their break-up had not been good – Vanessa chose her career over a future with Avren and that still hurt. The reason for her current choice of underwear and a silk robe became obvious when a man knocked at the door. Avren grabbed the food the man had brought and slammed the door in his face.

Avren is the nerd brother but he is still a hottie!!!! He has come across information that may mean they can develop a way for the deployment of the Auxem's wings to be non painful. But to do this right he needs the help of the smartest woman he knows, his ex-girlfriend, and they did not end well!

Veronica has got over Avren, really she has! Well that's the lie she keeps telling herself when he drops back into her life. He left her once when she didn't want to put him before her career but she sa

This one is my favorite. Avren and Vanessa are my absolute favorite couple of this series. I don't know if this series has any more books, but this is my favorite of the series so far. Avren and Vanessa have a bit more history than the previous couples which makes them unique. Each of the previous couples met after the Auxem came to Earth looking for mates. Avren and Vanessa met years ago on a different planet while they were both in college. They were hot and heavy, but things didn't work becau ...more

I read this as an arc and this is my honest review!

Another excellent addition to the Auxem arc. All have beautiful covers and out of this world stories. I'm so glad we made it to Auxem as it was both beautiful but filled with terrifying creatures. People eating nightmares I'm glad we're never described in detail and never appeared in the story as more than a threat. Our heroes Avren and Vanessa are at odds with their own heart most of the story, Vanessa is scared of him leaving and therefore bre

Avren is considered the geeky brother but I love those sexy, smart guys. He's just as hot and sexy as the others but he's also a genius. He's working on a way to help with the pain when the males wings come out but needs help with his research. He needs his ex girlfriend Veronica who is a research scientist. However, the breakup was not a good one. She was entirely too career focused and couldn't be bothered with things outside of work. It almost seemed like an obsession and I wanted to shake so ...more

Fueled with a desire to end the pain all Auxem's-especially his brother Allex- suffer when they let their wings out, Avren asks his former girlfriend for help. Vanessa is a talented geneticist who chose her career over Avren. Vanessa knows she can't have it all and men always leave therefore her work is all she needs. When she agrees to help Avren find a solution, Vanessa knows that in the end they will go their own ways once again. As they search for an answer, both try to keep their feelings o ...more

Once I started this book I could not put it down. I believe of this story line this may be the best book yet.

Avren may have been the youngest brother but he also had held a secret for a long time.

The author has done a great job is summoning up the storyline of the princely brothers that can fly. Well keeping the story moving and intriguing with characters so nicely fleshed-out that you could actually imagine what they look like, see their actions as the story continued and have a g

I loved this new series that is an offshoot to the TerraMates series. It is a stand alone book with its own happily ever after, but deals with 5 brothers and they are all in each of the books so if you want to avoid any spoilers, you should read them in order.

I enjoyed all of the books in this series. Each brother is his own man and comes with his share of hurt/heartache. They each also have their own area of expertise in which they excel and it makes for 5 completely different books/stories. My

Avren is the youngest prince in Auxem, he's a scientist and incredibly determined to save the people on his planet from the terrible pain they have from opening their wings. He turns to the love of his life, fellow geneticist, Vanessa to help. Although they ended their romance years ago they haven't forgotten each other.

Working together to solve the problem brings them closer together and all their feelings just deepen but when danger comes to the lab, Av

This is book five in the series about the five Auxem princes. Avren is the nerd of the family. He wants Vanessa's help to "cure" a problem all Auxem males have. They dated in the past and Vanessa does not really want to have to deal with Avren again, her feelings are still unresolved.

With excitement and danger, love and romance this book is an exciting scorching read which ties up all five stories at the end. Although

Throughout the Auxem Series I have had many questions and this latest installation finally answers them. Lisa went a different direction with Avren and Vanessa’s story. Of course there was sexy characters, adventure, excitement and steamy sex-not-sex (if you’ve read about the Auxem Men then you know what I mean, wow! Who could have thought that almost sex could be so HOT!) but she added a bit of mystery and intrigue that kept me guessing why. I loved how all my questions were answered, getting c ...more

Avren by Lisa Lace

Vanessa is on planet Susohn and works in molecular geneticist. Avren is from the planet Auxen and was involved with Vanessa but they had broking up. Avren has come to ask Vanessa to work with him on his planet. This is a love story that you can't help rooking for these two to get together. I love these books of brothers from Auxen finding love. I highly recommend this book and all the books in this series. I would give this story a 10 if I could. I voluntarily reviewed this adv

I wasn't sure how I was going to feel about Avren's book. The beginning was a bit hard for me to get through. Not so much because it wasn't a good read so far. More like they had already loved each other and were both just too scared to admit it.

Probably about halfway through, I was really getting into it. I ended up falling in love with Avren and Vanessa.

I absolutely adored the epilouge and getting to read about the entire family years down the road.

This is the last book in the series and I am sad to see it end. I love the Auxem planet and their princes. There is plenty of intrigue to keep you reading to find out if the task that Avren has taken gets complete. I loved Vanessa, she is that nerdy female that always puts work ahead of everything else, but in the end she realizes just what she was missing. I received a free copy of this book and volunteered to review it.

Exciting Conclusion to this series!

Avren is trying to make life better for the Auxem. He needs the help of his ex-Vanessa; a brilliant molecular geneticist. Ironically both believe the other left them, but are left with unresolved feelings toward each other.

Career versus relationship, Auxem secrets and dangerous sabotage all coalesce in this exciting conclusion to this out-of-this world series.

This book contains more than one story : the first Averen finishes the Auxem series . Villains are outed and the family finally gets their HEA. Abduction has all three sections put together into one story ,I absolutely loved the story and hope Is a Lace will make it into a series . Hopefully it she does it won't be broken up.

This book just couldn't keep me interested. The beginning to middle went very slowly then it got better towards the end. This is the first book that I have read in the series so that may have had some impact with keeping my interest with not really knowing the back story.

Second chance at love for the last prince. I like how it has come full circle - from being on the brink of dying out in the 1st book to painless wing deployment in the last book. Good wrap up of the series! Suggest reading in order. I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader Copy of this book.

The first half was pretty good. The couple dealing with working together and managing their past relationship was realistic and well written... but then it got dramatic... and then it got cheesy.... seriously cheesy.
