As a newcomer to the alien tribe, I've struggled to find my place. It might be because I'm a tad headstrong at times. And yes, I might have thrown a few things at people's heads. But I had a good reason to pitch a fit - my shy sister was stolen away right under my nose. Of course, now she's back and mated. Everyone's happy... except me.

I need... affection.
Okay, I'm lonely. Really lonely.

Strangely enough, the only person that I think understands what I'm going through is the same blue-skinned brute that stole my sister. It's wrong to hook up with him, even as a mindless fling.

Except... I'm not so good with the whole 'rules' thing.
And he's not so great with the 'fling' thing.


And the knowledge that this is my female, now and forever. Mah-dee gave herself to me today, and I am never going to let her go.

I really like this series. It’s fun! The double POV’s give it a certain flair adding to my enjoyment. It’s a pattern I have come to adore. The books carrie with them sexy hero’s, likable heroine’s, sweet, funny and sexy moments. I also adore the world Dixon has created and the strong cast of characters.

Things are changing on the Ice Plant. The earth wakes up and there is no safe place anymore. I liked the challenges Hassen and Maddie faced as well as the tribe. It was nice to see things shaken up. New struggles and challenges for all.

Hassen disobeyed a tribe rule and is being punished. Here he gets redemption and also finds his mate. Maddie I wasn’t to keen on her, but as the book moves on we see a different side of her and why she is so vocal at the first meet. I liked her change in attitude. I loved these two together. They fit. Got each other.

Rated: 4 Stars
