Publisher's Summary

Abducted from Earth over a year ago, Lauren spent most of that time getting accustomed to her new life as one of the "animals" in an alien zoo.

When she's sold by the zookeeper, her life takes a turn she wasn't expecting. She has no idea where she'll end up 'til she's brought to a sanctuary owned by a tall blue hunk of an alien called Riv.

Riv's life is quiet and peaceful in a place as far away from civilization as he can manage. So when an annoying chatterbox of a human ends up on his doorstep, he's less than pleased. The human disrupts his life and his solitude and he can't wait to get rid of her.

He's not interested in helping her, and he's definitely not interested in love.

Except...she's managed to wheedle her way in and suddenly those barriers around his heart don't seem so strong anymore.

He has two options: Let her go. Or let her in.

Contains mature themes.

If you love grumpy heroes...

this book is for you.
This book at many of the things I love: a grumpy, reluctant hero with a soft heart. A strong female lead who doesn't do things that make her too stupid to live. And a chemistry that can't be denied between them. It's NOT an insta-love situation, although the attraction is there and they both tey to fight it.

I would recommend this to Ruby Dixon fans, although it doesn't have the insta-love so common in hers.

Ok

It took a while to get into this book, seemed a bit cartoonish at first and hard to take seriously. The book was not as I expected. Holly did a good job with characters.

Fun story

This is a fun, pretty tame romance (2 sex scenes late in the book) but with a good build up. It is lighter than most alien abduction stories, but has a lot of similar notes (abducted, bought, sold, saved) so nothing really new which is perfectly ok with me. I like the universe that was built and I'm looking forward to the next 2 books - just hoping they have a bit more steam in them.

Wasn’t Expecting that much Humor! Seriously Fun!

I legit had many moments of laughing out loud. Really hope we get to hear more antics about “fecking Giblet”

Besides that, I really thought the main couple was sweet and they’re easy to root for. I like how the author addresses trauma for both the main characters and how they acknowledge there own mistakes.

Looking forward to read about the brother’s and best friends book!

Great story.

I adored this first book of this series. This is my first book by this author and I loved it. Excellent world building. I enjoyed the communication difficulties. I love Sci-Fi romance and this book fits nicely into my library.

Cool world building

A fun read.. really sexy! At first I wasn’t sure about the narrator but she grew on me. The story has really cool sci-fi world building. It was funny too.

Endearing

It was a great storyline and the premise was interesting. However , most of the book was the characters thinking with little action. There was section where fmc thought for over 30min. The reading was ok although when Hollie Jackson switched from Luisa to Riv it was difficult to distinguish who is thinking - and there was a lot of thinking . Also, why so many redheads in AG Wild books? Humans have so many shades .

Great

Great book, narration was fantastic. Loved the story line. Little bit of a slow build but totally worth it.

***Good start***

Ok i love alien abduction story but i am not a fan of an alien who is too mean to his human girl future mate, i get where he us coming from but blaming it too all women in general is mean. But Hollie Jackson is one of my fav narrator and she is amazing on both Riv and Lauren's voices and others.
