My Review and all that good stuff: This got a 4 out of five from me on Goodreads
Okay so my song suggestion, which is this crazy idea i had to assign a song that might help give a better understanding of the song’s tone or theme in my opinion, for this book is “Diet Mountain Dew” by Lana Del Rey and i am mad at myself because i have used this song for a different book and i was tempted to say “ET” by Katy Perry, but i just didn’t want to go there, but you know what screw it, i will go there, on top of the other song, i chose “ET” by Katy Perry.
Now to the Review:
First “quick” thoughts: Well i give this a tentative four stars and i hold every right to change my mind by the end of this to change it to 3.5 stars. With that said i really liked this, i thought that it was an interesting read and i have read a few alien books here and there, but honestly i think this is the only one that i have come across that i could say i liked almost as much as the Lux series by Jennifer L. Armentrout and that is saying a LOT because i LOVE that series. Anyways this was really good, when i went into it, on the side with the categories it didn’t seem like it would be super sex crazed book which hey i am okay with but a warning for those who thought it would be one or two sex scenes, well no. They are throughout the book so there is that warning for you. But other than that i thought it was pretty damn good.
Plot: I thought again like i said before i haven’t read a WHOLE lot of alien books but from my limited experience i thought that it was an interesting way to have an invasion, it was non-violent. It really was good, but for plot wise i think it was a little heavier on the sex than it was trying on the plot at times. I want to also think that they are a good balance but tilting a little more towards the sex. I don’t want to say much about plot because i don’t want to give anything away, but it is one of those books that does have a plot with sex scenes which i really appreciate it seems a lot of paranormal romances that i run into are mostly sex books and everyone wants a little plot sometimes.
And i there is a plot reason this dropped down for me but i will put that at the end and its an almost spoiler but don’t worry i will hide it so if you don’t want to know you don’t have to know. I will say that the pacing was really amazing, it was fast but the good kind where you don’t even realize how much you read until you look and you are like, wait! how did you get to 80% of the book?!?!?! I don’t think that it will fail to hold you attention.
Characters (this is want i wanted to talk about!):
Mia: is our Main character and for the most part i really liked her. I like the meek characters that change into these awesome women by the end of the book and i will admit she had gusto sometimes and there were a lot more times i loved her rather than i hated her BUT i hated her a lot. Like alot. Okay i get it he is a much stronger, has much more influence alien but REALLY? really you are going to let me start controlling you every movement? Serious?? I was going insane, maybe because i a very down to earth kind of girl i don’t like fancy presents and i dont like the idea of going to fancy restaurants to be “shown” off – which i feel like Korum does all of the time…- and maybe that is why i was getting so annoyed with her acceptance of everything so easily but dammit i wanted to see some fighting between these two, i wanted more than one little argument then Korum gets that look and suddenly she does everything he tells her. And i do understand sometimes why she gives in so easily but it bothered me to no end and yes this is one of the reasons it dropped in stars for me.
Korum: FUCKING HELL! there is possessive, then there is Korum. Yeah if you think you know possessive you don’t. This kid takes it to a WHOLE NEW LEVEL and yes this is coming from the girl who loves WEREWOLVES! like the most possessive type of supernatural aside from Dragons that i can think of. And Korum puts werewolves and dragons to shame in the possessive department. Actually if i am going to be completely honest Korum was far too possessive for my liking and i like possessive guys they are fun! But no he takes it to a whole new level that is just scary as fuck. And yes another reason this dropped in stars. But i will admit he had his moments where i was like, AWWWW SUPER CUTE! okay i love you! and other moments i was blushing so hard because he…um yeah. i give you 😉 winky face! I think though i wanted more of him being around, and they do have talks or whatever but they are mostly info giving talks about the alien race that he is part of. But hopefully – crosses fingers – there will be more in second book! The more i think about him the more i really hate him, especially in the beginning…. sorry i thinking of more things to say while i am getting ready for work…opps. hehe
Okay so I would also like to mention the romancing is somewhat nonexistent, it exist in between the sex parts that we don’t get to see and i am sorry but for me i want more than just these two falling in love because of electric touches and sex. There i said it… so i am holding out hope for more in the second book.
Now for that reason i mentioned earlier, and this isn’t going to be super gory details so if you want to know but you don’t want to be totally revealed well i promise i am not going to go into super detail but i still hides it because i want to be nice to those who don’t want to know anything because about around the ending (view spoiler) So that was that. – sorry about the spoiler you can see it on goodreads…sorry!!!
