Review: Ral's Woman by Laurann Dohner

Ral's Woman (Zorn Warriors #1) by Laurann Dohner
Synopsis (Goodreads):
Ariel never knew aliens existed until she finds herself kidnapped and taken from Earth. When the Anzon declare humans useless, she learns her fate-prize for the winner of a brutal fight between large, muscled alien men.

Ral is a Zorn warrior. He has also been kidnapped by the Anzon, along with his crew. Forced into slavery, he's got one thing on his mind-freeing his people. That is, until he sees the small human woman he's willing to fight to win. He doesn't just want her body, he wants her heart forever.

In the hands of a hot alien, Ariel is about to discover how pleasurable captivity can be.
My Thoughts: I have to admit that my weakness for sexy sci-fi is something that I'll probably never outgrow. This book hit my sexy sci-fi spot (so to speak) and made me very happy. While there were a few things that made me cringe a little (Ral's syntax, upon occasion, is painfully atrocious), overall the book was fun and sexy and I'm already plotting ways to get my hands on the next installments.

Probably my biggest scrunchy face moment (next to the syntax issue which is really not an issue since there's the whole alien language thing and it made sense) came when Ariel explained the idea of love to Ral and he declared that they loved one another and that was that. Okay. Cool. I guess. I mean, it worked. I can't deny that. Ultimately, the length of this book didn't leave a lot of time for angsty soul searching so I can see why we jumped straight into the meat of their relationship, but at the same time Ariel accepted his declaration very easily whereas I would have expected someone who had been viciously ripped away from everything she'd known might have ... I don't know, fought against it. Maybe. Or maybe his bulging muscles and fabulous hair swayed her. I can't lie, those things would sway me. All the way. Rawr!

Although there were some minor editing flaws, the book was fun and it gave me the sexy sci-fi that I adore. Aliens with big muscles are all the rage in my head. And on my Kindle, apparently. *thumbs up*

    2. I like to keep quiet about things like that. You never know when someone might use it against you.
      Mmm... aliens. Against me.
