“…if you want to ease you way into  sci-fi romance which feature aliens, than this series is a great place to start.”
~ Under the Covers

I really need to learn to pace myself when I get into a new sci-fi romance series. As, much like Hackett’s story lines I read these at a fast pace. I was too excited and impatient to sit and write a review before moving onto the next book. Annnnnnd that is how you end up with one review about an entire series. Or at least the series to date, there’s still at least one more  book to come out.

I admit these books caught my attention due to their beautiful man-candy covers. They’d also been hanging around in my “recommended for you” section on Amazon Kindle Unlimited as well. All this combined had me grabbing for them. I then started Gladiator, the first book in the series, and didn’t stop until I got to Cyborg the tenth book in the series and the most recent release. I was hooked.

Normally my tastes in sci-fi romance tend toward alien romances where the aliens are as strange as possible. However, Hackett’s Galactic Gladiators series is part of the “aliens are humans but bigger and sexier” school of thought. In the entire series there is only one blue alien hero *le sigh*, coincidentally (or not!) that was one of my favourites of the series (it was book seven: Beast.). So if you want to ease you way into  sci-fi romance which feature aliens, than this series is a great place to start.

Every book in the series also has more than just a sweet and sexy romance packed in. Expect action and adventure in spades. Our heroines are feisty and capable, many of them being warriors so expect lots of ass-kicking, or brilliant scientists who help out the gladiator gang. I loved it. The fast pace of the books also made it all too easy to read them in one sitting and then start looking for more.

As I am (lazily) reviewing ten books in one, below is a small breakdown of each installment in the series. But, I would highly recommend you read this series in order. There is a running story line through out the series, which may make understanding what and why things are happening difficult if you haven’t read the previous books.

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?

One of my favorite authors and series! Anna Hackett writes such wonder sci-fi romance that just sucks you in. So glad you enjoyed them. I’m a bit obsessed with her Hell Squad series which is also sci-fi, but alien invasion, post-apocalyptic based.

Hell Squad is definitely on my list of things to read next, I can’t believe I haven’t read Hackett sooner!
