From the moment I scent her, I have to have her underneath me.
The human female spins and runs straight into my chest.
“Oh!” she says but then she stops, frozen as she stares up at me. “Hi.”
I, too, am stopped in place.
This female is nothing like the others I have seen. She is petite, with long flowing black hair. Her features are as foreign to me as any humans, but for some reason I find her face pleasing.
Before I can think better of it, my tongue sneaks out over my lips to scent my surroundings.
But all I can smell is her.
And I’ve never scented anything so delicious in my life.
It’s all but a convulsion that tears through my body.
What? No! No, this cannot be happening!
My denials are weak, though.
Far louder is the cry: Mine, mine, mine, mine, MINE, MINE.

Book #1 of the Draci series.
Addictiveness: 3.5/5 This was a fun, fast read that offered some good laughs and some great steamy scenes. As addictive as melted cheese!
Character: hero 4/5, heroine 4/5, secondary characters 4/5, growth 4/5, real 2/5 Good characters with a little bit of growth.
Shak was my favorite. He was an alien trying to save his species by being the first to join humans on Earth, to find his mate and procreate. He went through genetic therapy so he could become “human like” and look alike humans. I had a lot of LOL moments with him. Even when they were in peril or being serious, he cracked me up. I’m not even going to mention all his attributes, because you need to read to find out.
Juliet has had a tough life. She has been part of an abusive relationship for so long that she didn’t like, trusted or wanted men. She had some crazy moments, but I have to agree that what was happening to her was scary. She ended up being a really good heroine when needed.
Several interesting secondary characters, as I already have three or for characters that I would like to read their story.
The villain was a bit unexpected, which I’ve liked it. Most of the story was pointing out to one character and then it was a different one. Good twist!
These characters were not very complex, but they were easy to love, connect and understand.
Cover: art 4/5, title 5/5, color-font 5/5, buy 5/5 I’m obsessed with book covers. I love to find snippets of the stories within the art. This cover is pretty and it works for this book. I see the hero, I could guess the sci fi vibe of the story, it has used good coloring and font. The title is very pertinent and true! I would buy this book by its cover!
Freshness: 4/5 This was an interesting book with a few unique moments. It is not so different from all the alien’s romance out there, but it has a few one-of-a-kind moment. As fresh as mint tea!!!
Plot: believable 2.5/5, conflict 4/5, dialogue 5/5, ending 5/5, enjoyment 4/5, opening 4/5, pace 5/5, setting 4/5, subplots 3.5/5, twists 5/5 Interesting opening and amazing ending. An unbelievable plot that is so fun that we don’t really care for plausibility. Dialogues well written, with a fast-paced plot and a few ok subplots. The setting could have been better explored, but the twists were really good and elevated this story into to another level. Good level of satisfaction!!!
Romance: believable 5/5, chemistry 5/5, description 5/5, development 4/5, steam 5/5 This was the star of the book. Really, this was a romantic story. It was ista-love, but it felt believable, even for aliens :). Seriously, the couple had chemistry and the hero was an alien gentleman. He really knew how to treat a lady and that was what got Juliet in love with him. The heat was on! Very alien steamy scenes, that are panty-wetting worthy!
Writing Style: 4/5 I love the author and I’ve read a lot of her books. One thing that I love about her writing is that she writes in a variety of different genres and the core of her stories are always good. She has made me feel in some books, in others like this one, she made me LOL. Crafty writing!
I wanted to understand better these aliens, to know more of their world and their differences from humans. I guess because the book is not very long, we don’t get a very well rounded background.
Stasia is synonym of a good steamy time. Her romances are always hot, dirty and beautifully done.
Very likable characters that made me LOL that made them very easy to connect.
Can’t wait to read the next book!!!
28.5/35 STARS – 4 STARS (between 28 stars and 31 stars)
Addictiveness: 3.5 Character: 4 Cover: 4 Freshness: 4 Plot: 3.5 Romance: 5 Writing Style: 4.5
Would I recommend? Yes. If you enjoy steamy, fun romance!!!
Would I re-read this book/series? Maybe. Depends what will I remember while reading the series.
Would I read more from the author? I read all her books!
