I so wish I could give this 10 stars!!!
Awesome from beginning to end, once I started reading I could not put it down (who needs to sleep anyway *wink*).
While the wait for Saber and Taylor's story has been a long time in coming it was so worth it (IMHO).
Action, suspense, laughter, hot sexy times, some tears (for me), and lots of love. Loved catching up with the previous characters from the first 3 books.
Especially loving the merging of this series with another of my favorites the Lords of Kassis.
I am so looking forward to the next in this series with Destin.

Overall Rating: 4.5 Rockin’ ★★★★☆

In a galaxy far from Earth there are many different races that live within an alliance of worlds. Within this coalition there are groups that want to do away with the order of the present leadership and take control for their own purposes. These factions are moving below the radar and testing the boundaries of the established leaders in the alliance. In S. E. Smith’s, Challenging Saber, the fourth book in The Alliance series, we have the resolution of Taylor Sampson and Saber’s story. Their relationship began in the first book when Saber helped rescue Taylor and her two sisters from a war ravaged Earth. Throughout this saga, old friends from previous series are revisited and new friends are made as they come together to protect their home planets and the known universe.

As far as Saber is concerned he is no longer a warrior worthy of claiming a mate. He knew from the moment he saved Taylor that she was his mate, but too young to claim and he would have to wait for her. While on a mission, he was wounded and almost lost his leg. A Trivator Warrior that cannot fight and protect his own is unworthy of life, he is damaged. As determined as Saber is to deny Taylor, the more his heart bleeds for his mate. When evil forces begin to show themselves by capturing Saber’s mate, nothing will stop him from rescuing her. Even a damaged Trivator can still take care of business!

Taylor loved Saber and claimed him from the time he saved her and her sisters on Earth. She has finally reached an acceptable age for Saber to claim her as his mate, but he refuses and is constantly trying to push her away. With only one final assignment before she completes her course of studies, Taylor goes off world on a relief mission.

I was waiting for Saber and Taylor's story forever. Theirs journey started in the first book after all. And a little snippets was given through the others two. So, to say I'm happy is understatement.

I loved this journey. It was fun, dangerous and full of adventures.

I'm impressed by Taylor. She's smart and sweet and loyal. And her patience with Saber was endless. I thing most would have given up long time ago. After all she was fighting for him and his stubborn ass for about 5 longs years. And in all those years Saber kept pushing her away. It did stung and hurt her to be rejected over and over. But she never give up. Taylor was always by his side. Sporting, loving and cheering for him.

I'm happy that Saber finally is in the better place after he hit a bottom and was lost for a while. At first I was so frustrated by his continue rejection of Tylor. But happy when he pulled his head from his a** and understood what a gift he was given.

But I have to confess, that I'm a little disappointed. Why? Because the Alliances journey just begun. Enemy is preparing for the war. There will be a lot of damage and loss. The would be a need to fight for the good, for the innocents, for what they believe in. And for all of that to 'see' I will need to wait for the next book. See, obstacle to my HEA here. lol. I'm not really patient. Oh, well. It's worth waiting for the good stuff.

The story starts at the beginning when Taylor first comes into Saber's life. You get glimpses of their interaction for the past 5 years as she grows up to be a 21 year old woman. Saber won't take her as his Amate even though they both love each other. He feels he is in no condition to take care of an Amate with his crippled leg after he was injured in battle. Taylor leaves to go to Dises V to take part in an aid mission to finish her studies early when war overtakes the aid station she is working at and she is captured by the opposing forces. Saber, Dagger and Hunter go to find her only to discover all is not what the Alliance thought was happening on Dises V. There is a good balance between the romance side and a strong plot with the characteristic tough, smart resourceful women that I find in S.E. Smith's books along with the Alpha males who love these women. The ending is open ended leaving the reader looking forward to the next book "Destin's Hold" to see what will happen next.

I have read all of the S.E. Smith books she has released in Kindle format. I've found with the last 5-6 books a feeling of predictability. A bit of substitute new names/character traits, slightly vary the plot twist and here is the new book. My word to describe the mood of the book is Meh but with the direction of suspense since it is a story cliffhanger. The romance in this book is taken care of with a nice bow so Saber & Taylor have their loving relationship.

I enjoyed reading the book for the couple of hours of enjoyment from one of my favorite "wordsmiths" ;). This is no Gracie's Touch or Paul's Pursuit (my two favorites) but a wonderful addition to my library.
