“In true Cari Silverwood fashion, each scene is unique and full of surprises. I’m never bored when I read her works.” ~ Under the Covers

Cari Silverwood continues her sci-fi world with Book two in the Preyfinders series, Intimidator. She made me a fan of erotic sci-fi with book one, Precious Sacrifice, and this installment gave me everything I was craving in a full length novel. Alien humanoid, Stom, has been awarded a human pet for his many years of good service. The trip to Earth to hunt and capture his pet should be considered an enormous honor, but Stom lost his bond mate and family in the destruction of his home planet. He has no interest in becoming Master to anyone. He sets about going through the motions with the plan of abandoning his hunt before sealing the final bond, but he never expects to have such a fierce sexual connection to his prey, Willow. It seems the nanochem his kind use to seduce their pets has an effect on the alien pursuer as well. Willow has serious troubles of her own. She’s a target for a local drug dealer and unbeknownst to her, has a terminal disease that no human medicine can touch. If Stom abandons his hunt, her fate is sealed and she WILL die. We also revisit Brask from book one, the sexy alpha alien brother to Jadd and get a hint of something to come with kick-ass, sword wielding Talia. The ever present enemy, the Bak-lal, are constantly seeking to transform humans through their own harrowing and chilling process involving nerve chewers (shivers…).

What a ride Cari Silverwood takes us on in this one. There is edge-of-your seat action interspersed throughout the book, but enough down time to really watch Willow and Stom make a connection. It’s obvious that there’s an attraction between them before Stom even enlists the aid of the nanochem, but when its effects hit, Willow can’t seem to temper her craving for his touch. Their scenes are smoking hot with a touch of D/s interplay, but realistic for the scenario. And in true Cari Silverwood fashion, each scene is unique and full of surprises. I’m never bored when I read her works. Inanimate household objects are yet again abused sexually! There’s a humor in this series that I’m so not used to after Pierced Hearts, but she does it so well. I love that the women all have something special about them. It’s hinted at throughout the first two books, and it explains some of the supernatural events that occur. The world building is actually very rich and complex without being confusing, which I really appreciate.  I happen to love non-con in the BDSM genre, and I feel this series would be less disturbing to the hesitant reader than say, Pierced Hearts (my fav!). While there is a chemical conversion that could be considered non-consensual and coercive, it’s obvious that both Master and pet are affected by its pull. The attraction is most definitely there beforehand, and I would find it entirely plausible for Stom and Willow to end up together even without the nanochem. I think this series is very readable for almost anyone. Highly recommended for those into some kinky action with humor and suspense mixed in.

About Cari Silverwood

Cari Silverwood is a New York Times and USA Today bestselling writer of kinky darkness or sometimes of dark kinkiness, depending on her moods and the amount of time she's spent staring into the night. She has an ornery nature as well as a lethal curiosity that makes her want to upend plots and see what falls out when you shake them. When others are writing bad men doing bad things, you may find her writing good men who accidentally on purpose fall into the abyss and come out with their morals twisted in knots.
This might be because she comes from the land down under, Australia, or it could be her excessive consumption of wine.

Her favorite hobby is convincing people she has a basement...though she really doesn’t. Promise.
If it existed it would be a terrifying place where you would find all the dangerous things that you never knew you craved.

I’m a 30-something medical professional by day and obsessive Crossfitter by night who’s been in love with the written word since I can remember.And that means that I read every Nancy Drew and Nancy Drew Files until I snuck Stephen King’s It from my father’s bookshelf at age 10.I was never the same… I read voraciously for years, until academic pursuits derailed me, but re-entered the fray 8 years ago when a certain teen paranormal series caught my attention.The passion back, I haven’t stopped since.When I’m not working, working out, or traipsing around for my teenage son’s hectic activity schedule, you can find me with Kindle in hand, often until the wee hours of the night.

I’m well known to be a genre hopper, who has very few hard limits.My first real romance series was J.R. Ward’s Black Dagger Brotherhood and she still rocks my paranormal world, along with Karen Moning’s Fever series and Joey Hill’s Vampire Queen series.That being said, you’ll often see me reading erotic romance with a BDSM focus.I’m never afraid of dark and dubious reads a la Joey Hill, Tiffany Reisz and Cari Silverwood.When genre fatigue sets in, a witty historical romance never fails to satisfy me, and Lisa Kleypasand Sarah MacLeanare my auto-buys.My favorite series of all time is Diana Gabaldon’s Outlader saga, and I will fight for Jamie Fraser to the death ;). Much to my fellow romance readers’ surprise, I also cleanse my palate with popular contemporary reads.Romantic suspense.LGBT.Western.If the writing is on, I’ll dig in.
