Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

*Starred Review* Eden Black is a Raka, a race of aliens hunted for their beautiful golden skin and hair, but she was raised by a human, Michael, who heads a secret organization dedicated to assassinating evil extraterrestrials. Eden is one of his top assassins. After the most nefarious of the slavers nearly kills her, Michael assigns Eden a partner, Lucius Adaire, a lean, mean killing machine. Eden knows she is good at what she does and resents his interference. To find out how the murderous slaver slips between worlds, Eden decides to let herself be captured and sold at one of his bidding parties. Brave, sassy, and resourceful, a la Lara Croft, Eden is willing to risk her life to secure freedom for others. Lucius respects Eden's independence and skill but hates to see her putting herself in harm's way. Showalter first demonstrated her skill at blending sizzling romance and nail-biting suspense set in a convincing futuristic society in Awaken Me Darkly (2005). She now continues the roller-coaster-like adventure in an equally entertaining tale that will please a wide cross section of readers. Shelley Mosley

Format: Paperback
After her parents were brutally murdered, young Eden Black was raised by Michael, the head of an ultra-secret alien assassination agency that eliminates aliens that prey on humans. Wounded on her latest assignment, Eden still wants to go after her target, but her step-father partners her with Lucius Adaire, an agent she comes to totally detest at first. However, he also pings her sexual radar with an intensity Eden has never before experienced. Bound together to complete an almost impossible assignment, Eden learns that her enemies aren't the ones she has to fear the most: it's her partner, dark and brooding Lucius who sets her on fire.

Gena Showalter is one of the new young lionesses of contemporary romance, paranormal romance and YA. She's burst onto the scene with a handful of books and as many worlds that beg exploration. When she's not mapping out a future where some aliens view humans as merely prey or traipsing through an Atlantis where magic is real and comes with shapeshifters who are always more than they seem, she's writing contemporary romances with a touch of wonder.

ENSLAVE ME SWEETLY starts out like a bullet, and the trajectory never slows down. Eden is a great heroine, the kind of woman who can take care of herself in any kind of situation. And she's drawn to Lucius Adaire, a dangerous, physical man who's been hurt and betrayed in the past enough to last a lifetime. To get to Eden's latest target, she has to pair up with Lucius, and it's a partnership that neither of them want. The prose just sings along, pulling the reader through the adventures and the romance with the familiar comfort of a favorite sweater. Readers who have the time to read it in a single sitting will devour it.

Format: Paperback
This was my first Gena Showalter - and I have to say, I was very impressed!

Basic Synopsis: Aliens and Human, after many years of war, co-exist on Earth together. However, despite the cease fire between the races, there are some Aliens (and Humans) who still desire to abolish or ruin the other race. In Enslave Me Sweetly, the main conflict deals with the enslavement of Humans; this is where Eden Black comes into the picture. It is her mission to infiltrate the slave trade, and kill the main proprietor.

Eden Black has to be one of my favorite characters of all time. She is a walking oxymoron. The following are some examples of these contradictions:

1.) She is a part of a race of aliens (Rakans) that is hunted (almost to extinction) by humans for their skins and hair. However, because she was raised by a human, she views herself more human than alien. In her mindset - aliens are the enemies, not humans.

2.) Her appearance is one of sweetness and gentleness. Her alien heritage is known for its peaceful nature - however, despite this nature, she works as an assassin. Her job is to seek and kill those who threaten the peaceful co-existence between Aliens and Humans. She is quite violent and arrogant. She looks like a "pretty" rich girl, yet she's not afraid to sweat and get dirty.

3.) Everything about her oozes sensuality; she loves the flesh, luxury, decadence, and sugar. But again - she acts with restraint and self-control. She's not one to over-indulge or to have promiscuous relationships, despite her desires.

In all aspects... Eden is a contradiction, and I just love that. This character really challenges the theory of "nature vs. nurture." She's fantastic - a great creation by Gena Showalter.

I have very controversial feeling about Gena Showalter; I really enjoyed some of her books and really disliked others. Regretfully enslave me sweetly is part of the "dislike" one's. The heroin attitude got on my nerves and the hero is just a bad ass with some smart moment. No chemistry between the characters and the story was just boring and cliché.

Format: Paperback
I tried really hard to enjoy this book, because I love this genre. But I couldn't get past Chapter 6. The writing is really not good, and it ruins what could have been a good book. There's good tension between the romantic leads, but the romantic action is flat and too fast, and jumps immediately back to calm discussion of the mission. A real mood killer! This book needed a good editor. Don't waste your time.

Format: Kindle Edition
Let me start by saying I love Gena Showalter and most of her books. From my experience her series books are usually a hit rather than a miss for me (her stand alone books are usually a miss for me). Whenever a new book comes out from her I usually pay the full price to own it. However I am VERY glad I borrowed this book from the library instead of dishing out $12 for the kindle edition.

This book was the only one out of the series that I don't own (mainly because it was pricier than the rest of her books) and it's due to the fact that it was a hard book to read through. I wanted to love the book, and I read through the whole thing... however it took me a week to finish. (I am one of those types that if you get me hooked, I will stay up through the night to finish the book before I sleep)

Problems:
This book is written in first person. I must say I am not a fan of this type of writing. I felt like I wasn't getting the whole story. It made it hard to get into the storyline. This type of writing pretty much ruined the book for me. It was all one-sided. You didn't understand the male's feelings. I guess I wanted to know what the guy was thinking when certain situations happened.

I also felt the storyline was pretty weak. I might be bias regarding this because I read book 1, skipped this one and read the rest of the series up to Dark Taste of Rapture (I loved). The plot for this book didn't really connect with the rest of the series (except maybe introduce new characters that Gena Showalter will write books about later on).

I do not believe this book is worth owning. If you do like Gena Showalter, I would recommend borrowing this book first. If you end up disagreeing and love the book, then pay the extra costs and buy it. Either way you won't lose anything by borrowing it from the library first.
