Although Vexing Voss had the requisite space viking and spunky heroine who won’t take his crap it just never came alive for me. ~ Under the Covers

Sometimes a girl needs some cheesy sci-fi alien romance in her life, especially this girl. For me it is all about the sexy alien heroes, they tend to be like vikings in space; all growley and alpha with the me-protect-the-weak-woman mentality and although it isn’t terribly politically correct of me, I lap that stuff up. Unfortunately Vexing Voss didn’t quite hit satisfy my needs cheesy sci-fi needs.

Although Vexing Voss had the requisite space viking and spunky heroine who won’t take his crap it just never came alive for me. I didn’t think Voss and Zoey had much chemistry and I wasn’t ever quite convinced of their affection for one another. Also, his penis freaked me out, normally I am okay with alien cock, be they blue, purple, grey, sometimes even two of them, but his weird snake thingy popping out a slit in his abs I just couldn’t imagine with it skeeving me out.

But this wasn’t just a romance, it did have a fair amount of action and adventure as Zoey manages to achieve the world record for the amount of times someone can be kidnapped/start a fight in one book. This did add some excitement but I would rather that more time was focused on Zoey and Voss creating a more believable relationship.

I did enjoy this book, it definitely had a few entertaining moments; however, I don’t think I will be rushing to read anymore of this series.

Gosh, we all seem to be admitting our ages…and I hate that I am at the point in life when admitting my age is a “thing”…whodda thunk it? I was kind of hoping I would remain 21 forever. However, I have moved out of that New Adult stage of my life and am now strictly in the Contemporary Romance age zone of 28. I would prefer to be in an Urban Fantasy arena, but I don’t think I own enough black leather. However, I could probably squeeze into some PNR, I am fully prepared to give a horn job to my favourite demon, or suck on my sexy vamps…fangs and I am definitely up for some heavy petting with some fine looking shifters. Than again their’s always Sci Fi…I am fully prepared to do the right thing and help some poor alien race with more 6 packs than a supermarket repopulate their planet. Not that I am loose woman or anything.

Annnnnd I will stop myself there, before I start waxing lyrical about my love of historical romance and fantasy as well; no one needs to know about my elf fantasies. As you can tell, I adore and day dream about most romance genres, and my three big loves are 1) reading about romance 2) writing about romance and 3) talking about romance with my gals. Which, is why I love Under the Covers so much, I get all my bookish needs satisfied and don’t get judged when I talk about my favourite characters like they are real people. Which they are right?
