Earth Girls Aren’t Easy. Who knew?

Meet the King of Zenithia, Xyib*eepthxnin. If you think his name is difficult to pronounce, his thick alien staff is even harder to choke down. X’s search for a docile breedmate leads him to California because he knows Earth Girls Are Easy. Then he meets Prairie. Docile and easy? Doubtful.

The h ruined this book for me! I was expecting a light, fun book but Prairie is so immature and annoying it frustrated me! I never saw her as feisty as the other characters saw her. Ugh, I was so looking forward to this book but I guess it was just not meant to be.

Oh my stars... what did I just read?!?!

Rie Warren has crafted an amazing, vivid, vibrant otherworldly alien world.  I could see the words painted in my imagination; I felt like I was actually on, in Zenithia. 

Taming the King is very unique.  The characters and the world that Ms. Warren has created is just astounding and beautiful.  The story is deeply erotic without being over the top.  The sex is a natural progression of the Hero and Heroine's relationship. 

The book is dirty, sexy and sassy.

Taming the Alien King was so much fun and 🔥 🔥 🔥.
really enjoyed this world Rie Warren has created, I have to say I was apprehensive and honestly I've never been a fan of scyfy because well Aliens just didn't do it for me, but these guys...holy crap!! Seriously it was so much more than I could have imagined, and it's so different from all her other works. I have always loved her writing style, her voice and how she develops her characters. The hero is strong, alpha, hotness and the heroine is sa

~~I received a free copy of this book to read and review for Wicked Reads ~~

Alien stories are not an automatic read for me, but every so often one comes along that I cannot resist! This one is fabulous and hopefully the following two in the series will be too.

The skill the writer need in an alien story for me is to make it sufficiently romantic that I can envision the scene, yet also contain elements which make me laugh at the crazy. Here we have human Prairie, who has such wonderful turn of ph

I don’t even know where to start on reviewing this ridiculously HOT and incredible read. Yes I do. When the author made a reference to the movie Earth Girls Are Easy a second after I thought it. There is something so refreshing about an author that is capable of poking fun at themselves in a way that keeps the reader from being too critical.

The storyline was expectedly far-fetched, but the book was SO worth the fun (and absurdly hot) read. Prairie and X were perfect for each other and intertwin

Cheeky and sexy are a good combination!

I loved this light-hearted read that was full of cheeky one-liners and bone-melting sizzle. This author knows how to mix humour and love and this new sci-fi romance is brimming with that and more! Alien meets California attitude meant Prairie and X were going to butt heads, bits and laugh all the way through it….

“My goal was to bag a hot Cali breeder-worthy babe. Hence landing in the 90210 zip code.”

“And look at you. Total eyegasm.”

Taming the Alien King by Rie Warren is the first book in the Intergalactic Lurve Series.
The King of Zenithia, XYIB*ECPTHXNIN- try this name three times - yep no joke comes to California to claim his mate and meets Prairie. His selection process is more than astounishing - no spoiler here.
He believes earth women are easy and finds earth in general lacking and boring. Prairie is anything than easy and boring. Shes a tough woman with street cred. Hes smitten with her and wants her, bad.

I enjoy a good science fiction romance, and Taming the Alien King instantly grabbed my attention. In truth, I expected nothing more than a fun quick read. One I would enjoy, but I wouldn’t be crazy about it. Turns out, I underestimated how I would feel towards this book. I absolutely adored this one, and cannot wait for more.

From the very start, this one sucked me in – and I can pin down why with a very simple answer. The humour. I was chuckling away with this one. I was sitting reading it in my

I personally am not a huge fan of science fiction romances and was a little sceptical as I started reading. I really love most of what I have previously read from Rie Warren, so I was willing to give Taming the Alien a chance. I feel the beginning of the story where X and Prairie meet was a little rushed and unbelievable - but again - were talking Aliens, so there you have it. Once they return to his planet, the plot begins to fill out and becomes interesting. Rie sets the stage for the followin ...more

I’m not a huge Sci-Fi fan but am a huge Rie Warren fan so I went in to this one with high hopes. It’s a solid 4 star read, I wasn’t the biggest fan of the heroine, Prairie, she was little immature but I love X and they balanced one another!

X is the king of the planet Zenithia and he’s decided to find a mate on earth, where he meets Prairie. From the moment X lays eyes on Prairie he’s claimed her as his queen and though it takes a little convincing, the pair head back to Zenithia, as Prairie has

I love alien romance so i was excited to get stuck into this one.

I enjoyed Prairie in this story, she is a say it as you see it type of girl and she didn't take much rubbish.
The relationship between her and X happens quickly, the attraction between them was smoking hot.

Here lies my problem though, X is too human for me, what I mean by this is the way he spoke and the way he acted at times was more human than alien. I would hav

Nope couldn't do it. It was like reading something a 5-year-old wrote that included a lot of "shut the front doors" "shut the f up" and sexual innuendo that is just stupid. I get it's an alien book.
But at the beginning, it seems that humans know about them. So why is Prairie so surprised by something's and not other?
X wants an easy earth woman. Too bad he doesn't look for a smart in child-like one.

I voluntarily read an advanced reader copy for my honest review.

Hilarious, sweet, extra(terrestrial) HOT! Taming The Alien King is a whirlwind sci-fi romance that had me both laughing and reaching for a fan. As a huge fan of sci-fi romance I tend to love everything from the very serious to the light hearted fun, but I’ll be the first to admit great sci-fi romance is hard to find. If you’re on the hunt for a smokin’ hot alien and looking to get some giggles in on the adventure this book is your treasure.

I could I not want to read a book with alien men? I couldn't that's how. I just love books when the men are aliens from other plants. They are always such fun to read. I think it's also why I love shifter stories too.

For the most part this is a good story and well written. I really enjoyed the story line and loved Xyib*eepthxnin (a mouthful, right?) he appealed to me right away. Yes, it might have been the alien th

This is my first read of Rie Warren and the first book in the Intergalactic Lurve series.

Rie Warrens writing will leave you fanning yourself and contemplating a cold shower. This Alien erotica is blazing with the right amount of sweet. The story is centred completely around Prairie and X, developing with their relationship. It reads well and is an easy read.

I would have liked more about how the royals run Zenitha and admittedly it took me sometime to really settle into this book. But if you are

Taming the Alien King was my first book by author Rie Warren and it most certainly will not be my last. The world she created on Zenithia was fun and easy to get lost in.

King Xyib*eepthxnin aka X needs a queen desperately and comes to earth in hopes to snag a docile mate. Only he snagged Prairie. A fiery redhead who does not know how to tame her mouth or actions. She just happens to be exactly what he needed.

There were times in this story I thought that Prairie's actions were a

He's a strong alpha alien and decides to comes to earth to find a mate. His adventure of trying to use Tinder to find his mate was hilarious. Prairie is a strong girl. When her path crosses with X they sizzle. Before we know it she heading off to Zenithia with X. Prairie is sassy and doesn't have a filter(love her). Their relationship moves quickly but it ...more

Let me start by saying I did like Taming the Alien King. It was fun, sassy, sexy and just enough adventure to keep the story from being complete porn. Xyib*eepthxnin (Gesundheit!), the King of Zenithia, makes a good king. He heads to Earth to fin

X thinks he'll find a docile human woman to become his queen. What he finds is a mouthy woman who challenges him at every step...and he absolutely cannot live without her.

"Maybe my command stunned her into silence. My cock in her mouth would too."

Rie Warren is my go-to for eortic novels and novellas. She can do no wromg as far as I'm concerned, whether she goes for hetero, homo, dystopian or fantasy.
I was oddly attracted to this short sci-fi erotic series, since I'm definitely not the biggest fan of fantasy books.
Of course none of these books are realistic in our current world...yet they could as well be. Rie's aliens are just like us. except bigger nad kinkier....and their planet is pretty much a futistic version of ours with what I fe

I've always been a fan of Rie's writing style since I read her first release. Her writing style is fun and funky, and realistic. The characters talk like real people, even when they are living in an alien world. The story was fun and easy to read. X and Prairie are a great romantic couple with a hot, hot, hot relationship. There is adventure, a little danger, some girl-fighting and of course, love. I loved reading Prairie's journey to accepting a life in a foreign world, with a man who is king. ...more
