I received this e-book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
What I Liked:
The futuristic atmosphere was an interesting story element. I like dystopian stories and this definitely fell into that category. The alien nature of the hero in the story was also intriguing. It added a taste of the forbidden, as did the elements of BDSM. There is a spy plot line going on and this being the beginning of a series, I am interested in seeing where the author takes it. The love scenes were hot and natural. What more can a girl want?
What I Didn't:
The beating scene at the onset of the story was a little disturbing, as was the society where rape was a consistent fear among the women. Yes, in any society that does exist, but it felt almost palpable here. A girl had to prostitute herself just to be semi-protected against it. Harsh.
I liked the dystopian story line and the hot sex with the main characters. The beating was a lead in to the hero saving the heroine, and that worked withing the context of the story. The threat of rape in this world was kind of a looming presence, however. The spy back story is interesting and I will be checking out more in this series.
If you like futuristic stories with elements of BDSM, give this one a try. The alien sex and mental bond was good and had me turning the pages pretty quickly.
