Book Review: Alien's Temptation by Tina Moss


Book Description

I’m the captain of Earth’s moonbase. I can handle any mission. I do not need a partner, even if he is a sexy-as-sin alien commander, who looks at me like he’s trying to decide between throttling me or…something else.

His grumpy demeanor and dominant streak make me want to shake him, but I can’t deny the heat between us. Do I dare put my hand to the flame? I’ve been burned before. And I’ve guarded my heart ever since.

As we travel to a distant planet to find the rare substance that will save both our kinds, we soon discover the inhabitants have some odd customs. And if we don’t follow their sensual mandates, they’ll withhold the bounty.

The survival of the Earth-Rhonar treaty depends on our success. We can’t afford to fail. But when victory depends on a death-do-us-part bond, can I put my heart on the line and trust again? And will this alien warrior lower his defenses to let me?

Only the stars know.

Alien’s Temptation is a sci-fi romance and book three in the Earth Brides and Alien Warriors series, but it can be read as a standalone. Will they find their brides? Steamy seduction, fated mates, and a happily-ever-after guaranteed.

My Review

Tor's planet was ravaged when the Versaken killed all their female's. Now the males become empty, without emotion because they don't have mate's. But Tor's people, the Rhonar Warriors have found that they can mate with human females if they can find a mate among the Earthlings. But the Earth's government won't agree to a treaty between our two people's unless the Rhonar Warriors can prove that they can keep Earth safe. 

So Jane, who is a captain of Earth's moonbase agrees to go on a mission with the grumpy Tor to Sense VII to get ergamite, which would prove to Earth's government that they would be safe. But Tor is very gruff with Jane because he's trying not to act on his feelings for her since he knows she is his mate. But he wants to wait to tell her until there is a treaty between their people. But their passion will not take a back seat to this mission. Not when they are both lusting after each other. No matter how short or iterating Tor is to Jane, she still finds him to be a very handsome alien that she has a hard time not fantasizing about even when she wants to throttle him. 

The snarkiness between them was really funny to watch because she has no idea how hard he is trying not to give in to his feelings. She just thinks that he's a jerk so she pushes his buttons to drive him crazy at every turn. That was fun to watch. 

What they have to endure together once on Sense VII in order to get the ergamite, was comical but it really brought them closer together and made it impossible for Tor not to show her he isn't the jerk she thinks he is. This is my first time reading this author or this series but I'm looking forward to reading more from this author. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
