An alien fantasy brought to life...

It should have been a simple volunteer job. Keep the events for the Romancing the Capital convention running smooth. But from the moment Brigitte lays eyes on the male model dipped in purple, hired for the galactic party, she is thrown into a tizzy—mostly because of his stolen kiss.

Imagine her shock once she realizes he’s not an actor. This purple alien is for real!

And Phyr didn’t come to RTC alone.

He brought a bunch of his mercenary friends to help him abduct all the single ladies. These readers are about to go on a galactic adventure wilder than anything they’ve ever read in a book—and hotter than anything they could have imagined.

 

Reader Abduction is book seven in the Alien Abduction series by Eve Langlais.

This is not a good place to start the series, nor is this a good book. I should have read some reviews; before buying, but I’ve been enjoying this series so much and was on a purple alien kick…until this one. I didn’t like the plot nor did I care for the characters. 

We start out at a romance convention and get to see several authors we know and love. It may sound cool at first, but the more I read the more it didn’t work for me. It was very hard to get over all the real authors mentioned. It felt like Eve was trying to sell us on all these other authors works. 

Then we go into the author conspiring to have fans/friends abducted by aliens, so she can continue to write her purple alien books. It felt to much like what the slavers where doing in the other books in this series, when they would captured and kidnapped human women to sell to the highest bidder. The purple alines have this same plan, but to sell them on their own planet. It’s unsavory and just killed the purple aliens as the fun loving aliens.

Then we have our 12 women who are abducted. Not one of them objected. They where all ok with this even our heroine, Brigitte. She did mildly object, but that doesn’t last. I didn’t care for Brigitte.

Then we have our hero, Phyr, his mind set is just wrong. He’s to demanding, arrogant, and forcing sex with trade offs. Not the type of purple alien we’ve come to enjoy and love. He wasn’t fun at all. I didn’t like Phyr.

Last, everything happens within a day or two and the other women are not even mentioned or they are just glossed over and then deposited/dumped on the purple aliens planet. This one was lacking the fun abduction and banter that made the couples come together. It felt way to forced, sex slave like, and like the author is uncaring and disregarding for human rights. 

All the other books in the Alien Abduction series have made me snort, giggle and laugh my ass off. Reader Abduction was not funny, didn’t hit it off with me, and the author has killed this series. I won’t be reading anymore purple aliens. I’m not quieting this author, but this one was just wrong in so many ways.

Melanie has enjoyed this author and this series. I might try a few but I’m sorry this one was so different than the rest.

I’ve read a couple from this series and really loved them, but I could see how something like that would take one right out of the book.

oh no. no more purple aliens. almost sounds like the author was thinking of something darker, maybe for the next series and forgot to keep it light and fun like the rest.

Oh no! So sorry this one didn’t work for you. But sometimes that happens and it’s the end of a series for you. I recently felt the same about a series I was reading.
