Series: Ice Planet Barbarians #3
Rating: 5 Stars
Official Blurb: As one of the few humans stranded on the ice planet, I should be happy that I have a new home. Human women are treasured here, and one alien in particular has made it clear that he wants me. It's hard to push away the sexy, flirtatious Aehako, when all I want to do is grab him by his horns and insist he take me to his furs.
But I've got a terrible secret - the aliens who abducted me are back, and thanks to the translator in my ear, they can find me. My presence here endangers everyone... but can I give up my new life and the man I want more than anything?
Review: It seems like the more I read of this series the better they get. Don’t get me wrong I have really liked all the couples in their own little way, but I absolutely adored Kira and Aehako.
Each girl that was taken has had to deal with issues of their own. I mean, their whole lives will never be the same, so yeah, it’s hard to adjust, when everything changes in the blink of an eye. Poor Kira was the one who got stuck with the translator in her ear. Not only did she have to endure the painful device being implanted, but now, she can literally hear everything. Even stuff she doesn’t want to hear with all the new couples “resonancing” around her.
Kira also feels a bit left out, like she isn’t a part of the group. Well, expect for beautiful Aehako. He is literally the sweetest and nicest barbarian so far, and he is very interested in Kira. He isn’t one to shy away from flirting, and he literally does everything to show her that she is his no matter what. There are only a few problems with the situation. Kira’s khui has yet to sing, purr, or vibrate for Aehako, she has a secret about her past that she is scared to share, and now, the aliens are coming back, and she is worried they are going to find her, because of the stupid device in her ear. She is also dealing with a jealous girl named Asha, who is always throwing herself at Aehako. So yeah, it’s a lot for one person to handle. Good thing Aehako pays attention to her every move. He knows something isn’t right, and he is determined to stick by her side and prove they are meant to be.
This book is so emotional, yet so beautiful at the same time. I fell head over heels for Aehako because he is not only handsome, but he is also sweet, compassionate, funny, and very loving to Kira in every way. Kira goes from a shy and timid girl to such a strong and powerful woman by the end of the book. I loved the bond and connection between these two, and I can’t wait to get started on book 4.
