I never liked her kind before. Rank climbing bastards. Liars. Cowards.

The second I see her walk into the captain's meeting, I want to dislike her but I can't. I’m captivated by her smooth curves, long thick hair and her confidence. I want to taste her sweetness.

She’s got guts, smarts and I want her to come willingly to my bed. Except, she doesn't respond to my charm. The f

She’s also taken unnecessary risks.

I didn't think I was going to like this book given the obnoxious male lead described in the blurb but I ended up enjoying it. Only thing is that as far as I could tell the hero's racism against the heroine's people was never resolved - which soured my overall enjoyment of the book.

This story was a case of too much all at once, too many characters, too many species descriptions and too much internal dialogue. It seems the characters lived in their heads a lot and that’s where a good deal of the story takes place too.

For me the characters all felt wooden and I had a hard time connecting with any of them. There were attempts to interject humor or starts of trying to create a type of camaraderie within the crew that for me never left the ground. All of the parts were there fo

I really enjoyed reading this amazing Sci-Fi romance. The story-line is well-thought out and written with an intriguing plot, which certainly kept my attention. The characters are unique & well-developed with a variety of traits and different sides to their individual personalities with attributes of determination and/or recklessness.
There is: various kind of alien species, cyborgs, terrans (humans), twists & turns, intrigue, action, secrets, danger, enemies, manipulations, devious plan

I thought this was a good sci-fi romance. It is the second book in the series and you could probably skate by without reading book one, I recommend that you don't. Reading that book will really help you understand a lot about these characters and their world. As for this book it was steamy and dramatic. I felt the hero and heroine were a good match. Even with him being all hot, alpha male, she was able to stand toe-to-toe with him, which was a nice change of pace from the usual. Great chemistry, ...more

This is my 1st read and review for this author and this is a fantastic story and it’s book 2 in this series. A fantastic sci-fi read with an alpha alien male who is attracted to a brave, sexy strong and stubborn human female. I like how Vivra stands up to Pax she doesn’t put up with his muncho crap but Pax gets her back and shows her who is boss when he gets her in his bed. I loved this action packed steamy story and I highly recommend this book it’s definitely well worth the read.

The author has created a wonderful world with well rounded characters. The plot is exciting to read and has drama, intrigue, humour and heat! The characters have great chemistry between them, and their conversations are realistic. The alpha male may have found his mate, but she isn’t going to drop to her knees and give in without some convincing and a fight!

Wow! What an exceptionally well written sci-fi romance. I loved the storyline and the hodge podge of alien races portrayed by the lively and most interesting characters. And make no mistake about it, this is definitely a romance full of intrigue, a boisterous and dedicated starship crew and the steamy romance of the red demon Pax and the green scaled Bolark female Vivra. This book is a keeper, for sure!

The second book in the Unexpected series and the series is just getting better. I want to read the next book when it is out. The pages flow smoothly one to the other the storyline has suspense, drama, danger, fake Federation, betrayal, different types of peoples, and romance. Pax and Vivra's story kept me turning pages.

This book is unique, well developed. well written, and unexpected.
Unexpected Demon is the second book in the series and while following a different couple, the world is still the same is and might be better enjoyed by reading book one first. The characters have undeniable chemistry and the plot-line was easy to follow. I received an advanced copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a honest, unbiased review.

Unexpected indeed! Both the Protagonist ‘diverted’ from their usual because of love, of course it was all for the better or they wouldn’t have their happily ever after.

I can imagine myself in space with all this alien talk and dangerous planet they were discussing.

The author showed good imagination. The world-building is great and extensive. There is a few steamy sex scenes. There is good character development, not just for Vivra and Pax but also for the supporting characters in this fascinating book. The plot is peppered with action scenes. All in all, a good read.

Enjoying this new to me author

I read the first book in this series and very much enjoyed it. I skipped book two and read this one and am now definitely a fan. I'm headed back to book two and I am now following this author. I recommend taking a chance and trying her out. I doubt you'll be disappointed.

Wow.
I loved this book.
I will be watching, like a hawk, for the next book in the series to come out.
It was detailed that it felt like I was right in the middle of all the action.
I am amazed.
Also, I now have a new author to add to my list of favorites.
Happy reading!

He never liked her kind but when she walked into the room. He wanted to hate her but there was something about her. She does not respond to him in the way he had expected. She takes risks and he will make her see his way. How will he do that? See what he will do

Worth reading

NR. This is well written. This was read as a stand-alone but this is part of a series which I need to catch up on

This is not a short novel. This has over 350 pages of twisting plot, characters you want to know better, romance, and some steamy bits as well!

I need to read book 1 to get caught up. But what I can tell you about this one is that I would definitely read book 1 and then this one.

Entertaining and unique story

Vivra and Pax’s story read like a few continuous episodes of ships logs on the Enterprise to me! It has an entertaining and unique plot with an underlying romance between two strong characters who put their jobs first.

“Vivra’s sharp and unyielding gaze snapped to him. She reached down and grabbed something from her side pocket, then pulled it out and pointed it at him. “So help me, Seth of Stars, if you don’t get out of my office, I’ll remove you myself.” 0 likes
“I gave you a star carrier. I ordered you to help those on Brica. You’re making it sound like I have no honor,” Orin hissed. Rannn thrust his finger at the admiral’s face. “You gave me a diseased ship. You’re sending me on a clean-up mission with no information and no leads, and you didn’t have the honor to tell me that this was your planet. Honor is admitting your faults first and then doing what you can to fix them.” Orin chuckled, but it felt dark.” 0 likes
