Warrior Forever – Review
by: Amber Bardan
The most likely conclusion to my current predicament is psychosis.
Much more likely than actual alien abduction.
Significantly more likely than impending forced nuptials with a giant primitive alien whose society never evolved a sense of humor.
But life in a horny space-barbarian’s cave isn’t all bad…
Did I mention that he vibrates?
Warrior Forever – Review
I am definitely reading outside of my comfort zone with this one. This book took me by surprise. I went into this book only picking it up because of the author. I knew nothing about it when I signed up for the tour. When I did the cover reveal for it, I thought I’d be in trouble because it was an alien sci-fi romance. I am glad to say it was a pleasant read for me.
Alien sci-fi is not usually my jam. It did take me a while to get into this one, but once I did, it picked up quickly! I did spend the first few pages confused. All I could think was how impossible it was. Once I righted my mind into sci-fi land, which wasn’t easy, it went smoothly.
This was an interesting book, to say the least. Bardan’s writing never fails to excite me. I have enjoyed all of her books, this one was no different. It was super steamy and rich in content.
Overall, Warrior Forever was a good read. I definitely enjoyed reading this steamy adventure of Leila and Thor.
I’d never felt more human than I did right then. With his thumb bumping my rib, sweat salty on my lips, my pulse hammering a low beat, and the ache of his passion between my legs.
I opened the fist squished between us and placed my hand flat to his chest. His heartbeat answered mine—thump, thump, thump. I smiled, and pressed my nose against his skin. His scent invaded me, heady and so human that in the moment it seemed he was. His chest rose and fell under my touch, over and over, making me feel ready to close my eyes and nap for the third time in one day.
I glanced up at him.
He still watched. He always looked at me, but when he looked at me this way it was as though only I existed for him. As though for him there was no colony beyond this cave. No universe outside of right here.
Nothing other than me.
And it was the loveliest most wonderful feeling.
My thumb made the same pattern on his chest that his did on my side.
Oh, but if there’d been men like him on earth…Everything would’ve been different.
“Thor.” My voice came out scratchy.
“Yes?” He leaned in.
I resisted the urge to meet him halfway. “If there’s no women born here, do Warriors ever relocate to live on their mate’s home planet?”
His breath fanned my face. “No, La La. Must live here for sake of Colony.”
I swallowed, my throat as raw as my voice.
“Need next warriors born here.” His brow scrunched as though somewhere under all that Warrior logic, he actually got how shitty this was to be the one who has to do one-hundred-and-eleventy percent of the sacrifice.
I broke his gaze. “That’s what I thought.”
Thought? What in the actual hell was I thinking?
I withdrew my hand from his chest and rubbed my neck. He’d say yes and then what—he’d just mosey on back to earth with me? An intergalactic warrior on an army base. Totally doable.
I eased back, but his smothering warmth seemed to follow. But no really, what was I suggesting? That he’d come with me? As in that I’d actually mate with him?
Marry a guy I’d known for what, three damn days?
Marry a fucking alien?
