“I found myself distinctly underwhelmed.”
~ Under the Covers

I’m normally a sucker for these kind of Sci-Fi romance books…an unlikely woman plucked from her life on Earth to make alien babies with a sexy hunk of alien man meat (or two) and then skip happily off into the milky way. So, Stranded seemed like just the book for me. However, I found myself distinctly underwhelmed with this book.

That’s why I am keeping this review short and to the point, I don’t want to wax on about how I didn’t enjoy it. When I drill down into what I didn’t like about it, it comes to two things: the hero and the heroine. I felt like they had no chemistry and I didn’t understand why the heroine was so eager to gain the affections of that particular alien honey bunny. The author told us she felt a pull towards him, but she didn’t really show it. And I was left…completely uncaring about their fate.

I’m going to leave the review there, suffice to say although this is normally the type of book and series that I lap up, I don’t see myself continuing this particular series. I move onwards in my journey to find more Sci Fi Romances I can binge on!

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?
