Synopsis (Goodreads):
Tess didn’t have much to miss when she was stolen from Earth. She left behind a lackluster job and a piece of trash, cheating boyfriend. It was tragic really, to lose her life before it had ever begun. Kidnapped and sold into slavery, she quickly found herself with a one-way ticket to prison. All hope of escape was lost. At that point, it was about survival and never once did she imagine that in the depths of an alien prison ship, her life would finally take shape.

Hope was a thing of the past for Crius as well. Years had gone by, each chipping away at his soul. He no longer felt like the man he once was. He felt more like a monster, pushed to the brink in order to protect a dorm that didn’t care one way or another. Then she walked in, a ray of light in a dark life. She saw past the beast. After everything, she could still see him.

And what do you do when you find a reason for living? You fight. You fight for love and you fight for family. When you know what real loss is, you can’t bear to lose that which counts. When push comes to shove, Crius and Tess draw a line in the sand and they plot an escape from ALIEN PRISON.
Thoughts on Alien Prison: Oh, yeah. This one had a bunch of things that worked for me. A human lady with some communication issues (and by that I mean the aliens who abducted her didn't bother setting her up with a translator and she didn't speak any of the alien languages) and an alien dude with a powerful protective instinct. Even before he caught feelings, Crius did everything he could to keep Tess safe. She didn't always understand why he was doing these things, but he did what he needed to do to make sure the others in their dorm didn't try to take advantage of her.

To be fair, some of them still did try to take advantage, but Crius worked with what he had and he got results.

It took a while before Tess and Crius got on the same wavelength (after all, there was the communication issue and the fact they had one of Crius's buddies hanging around, which tends to slow down the potential for sexy times), but when they did, THEY DID. Of course, they were still on a prison ship being held by the awful Crux and things didn't look too rosy for their future, but that's just a little road bump, right? (I kid, it was pretty major. But that didn't stop Crius and Tess from catching feelings and trying to find a way to make things work.)

We got to see quite a few familiar faces (eventually) and we got some answers to the question about what happened to the Grey King (answers which will hopefully lead to him being found/rescued down the road). No lie, I like this world and these aliens and hope to see more adventures and romance (OF COURSE) for them. *thumbs up*
