Two brothers want to possess her… After her planet was destroyed, Brianna was rescued by two fierce and desperately gorgeous warrior brothers. Aeron and Hauk. They want to keep her, protect her, mate her. But what the brothers wanted from her was too much to handle. Settling into a new culture was hard enough without dealing with the custom that dictates she mate with two males. So she pushed them away. They’ll do anything to protect her… An attack sends Brianna back into the arms of the sexy brothers. Now they'll do whatever it takes to win her over. But can Brianna go against the conventions of her human nature and accept both warriors as her mates? It might not matter because someone is out for blood and it’s up to Aeron and Hauk to defend her against a deadly enemy.
I'm actually surprised that this was so good. (no don't gimmie that look, you know you make snap judgements about books too).  This is book 2 in a series but it totally could be read as a standalone (which is what I did).

I found the world pretty fascinating so I bought book 1, so I can learn more about it and why it's setup this way (even though this one shares a bit about that, I still want the first story for more background and the other characters seem pretty awesome).  I the mystery wasn't deep or a really huge plot point but it gave enough tension and a motive to them moving the plot forward.

I felt like Briana's emotions were valid and real, having to adjust to being the stranger in a new land (see what I did there?? ohh literary witticism i love it) as well as learning to accept their customs without losing sight of your own is pretty hard.  I liked that these were discussed and that the male protags didn't exert pressure for Briana to come to to their side of things; they allowed their feelings to grow naturally and gave each of themselves time to come to terms with her as their new mate.

There was tension within the triad, that stemmed from the culture clash, as well as the pride one has in their culture.  I enjoyed watching these being resolved, while honoring each of the their needs.  It was great to see the romance flow as well watching as Briana opened up beyond her expectations.  I enjoyed how quickly the story flowed and was enjoying the tension and the palpable chemistry within the trio.

I liked the glimpse of the world given and I can't wait to go back into it and read book 1 and then book three.

I would recommend this for those seeking a quick thrilling futuristic romance whit a great M/F/M trio.

Happy Reading
