There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
I did not have messed up pages or anything like the one reviewer said. Also for the reviewer who say this is like Brides of Kindred there are lots of books where there was a war of earth and aliens are looking for there mates. However these 4 Dragon Warriors just came to earth to visit and it had been a long time since they were there. They just happened to find a mate. Also in those books the females were forced to spent time alone with the males, because our government forced them because the aliens helped to save earth. My problem with people saying someone else wrote the same as someone else is that you could say that for probably every book that is out there. Ideas are used and reused over and over in movies, TV, and books, etc,.. So that is not really a point that matters.
Sex Content is very high.
About the series. There are 2 books by Laurie Roma and two books by Susan Hayes. You do not really need to read any of the books before you read one. However Laurie Roma's two books go together and Susan Hayes' two books go together. Basically You meet at least one of the characters in their first book who is a main character in the second book.

If you're looking for a steamy sex novel, Roma delivers. However, the story moved too fast for my taste. I was looking forward to more world building in the fascinating post-alien invasion Earth. Instead Roma barely touches on the problems and discrimination women face in a world where only their fertility is prized. So much More could have been done in this universe and I was disappointed she didn't explore it further. The heroine fell far too quickly into the arms of the FOUR (you read that right, Four) Alien Males. I'm all for steamy sex and this isn't about Prudishness at all....but 2 or 3 males would have made the story flow better and made it more believable. Some conflict would have been nice and some tension and build up toward the sex would have made it a far more enjoyable story. What woman doesn't want to be pursued by males that hot? Yet, the pursuit ended even before it had begun :(. They Meet...BAM! SEX...BAM! Mated. Granted I'm a fast reader but this truly was a Short Story taking me less than 2 hours to get through, and I didn't skip anything.
The thing though that took it into 3 stars were the Male characters themselves. They're touted as Huge, Powerful males with an inner Beast Who are Soooo Jealous that even another man looking at her sends them into growls of rage and threatening posturing. They keep saying things like, "You're Mine and mine alone" and "No other man will ever touch you"....yet these Four Jealous Possessive Men have NO problem sharing her with 3 other very jealous possessive men? I could see each set of Twins sharing one woman--family bond being what it is. But Four? Their jealous natures wouldn't allow for that if Roma stuck her to her own canon. They'd have been fighting and killing one Another over her....not taking sloppy forth. And More is Not Always Better. Sometimes it was hard to remember who was who. They story would have flowed better if there were Fewer characters to keep up with and each one was given more page time to be fleshed out and build their characters more fully.
All in all, I actually did enjoy the book. Just be aware that it IS a short story without much world building and a LOT of steamy sex and save it for that quiet afternoon on the beach when you just want some lighthearted fun and eye candy without having to think.
