What is destined cannot be changed.
Chris has had a monumentally bad month. First, an aggressive band of aliens invaded the Earth, conquered the world, and now he’s fighting for survival in the mountains with his family and the neighborhood bigot. Just because he’s barely out of his teens and a bit on the scrawny side doesn’t mean he can’t watch out for his mom, sisters and younger cousin. Chris keeps searching for the brighter side of things, but his humor is wearing thin. Fear can do that to a guy.
Lasar and Nary are a soul matched pair of warriors from Alashar. Lasar is Nary’s Ahna, the one who dominates him, and Nary is the Nasha, or submissive, to Lasar. Every Alasharian, regardless of orientation, needs the balance of the power exchange to exist peacefully within their lifelong soul match bond. When Lasar is awarded a war prize, he sends Nary to look over the recent arrivals.
Chris and his cousin Morgan are captured and sent to the slave cages where they discover from the other imprisoned young men that they are destined to be sex toys for alien pairs. When one of those aliens saves Chris and his cousin from being abused by the slave master, Chris hopes that the seemingly kind alien won’t be too horrible an owner.
Lasar and Nary are finally alone together with their new sex slave, ready to enjoy their reward. However, in the middle of their playtime a shocking event occurs that not only disrupts Chris’ world even more than it already has been, but also challenges everything that Lasar and Nary have always held dear. As Lasar searches for answers, he begins to question the reasons behind the Earth invasion and where his loyalties should really lie. As their Ahna, he must be the one who decides whether they will all be safer together, or apart.
Reader Advisory: This book contains scenes involving sounding.
Just like any other alien romance, they invade Earth… Dun na na. In this book, aliens are invading due to the space void that is on track to destroy their home planet. Oh no, gasps! So, of course they pick Earth because it is the best most suitable planet for them to thrive, and like Uncle Bens rice, it can be ready in an instant.
During the invasion some of the humans lose their lives, while others are captured and used as sex slaves. I’m sure you are asking why they invaded Earth instead of trying to seek a peaceful cohabitation? Well, of course there is deceit mixed up in all of this. Say what?!? No… They are told that humans: kill, hurt and torture each other with little reason and no loyalty. The only thing that settles them and makes them docile is sex, and they are insatiable; mating whoever and whenever they want. Are you thinking what I’m thinking? They must have gotten a hold of the audiobook, The Hunger Gays by Nathan Alexander, narrated by Iggy Toma.
The story itself was enjoyable; however, the beginning of the story was definitely more entertaining. I felt as the author went more into the story of the soul bond between Lasar, Nary and Chris, it got a bit hokey. Due to this, I felt the chemistry between the three characters was okay; nothing to write home about. Even with that, I am very interested in the underlying story, and cannot wait to see the direction the author is going to take.
Just a FYI:
This book ends in a ‘sort of’ cliffhanger; meaning that it leaves you with unanswered questions, but doesn’t leave you sitting on the edge of your seat.
