Publisher's Summary

As a newcomer to the alien tribe, I've struggled to find my place. It might be because I'm a tad headstrong at times. And yes, I might have thrown a few things at people's heads. But I had a good reason to pitch a fit - my shy sister was stolen away right under my nose. Of course, now she's back and mated. Everyone's happy...except me.  

I need...affection. Attention. Okay, I'm lonely. Really lonely.  

Strangely enough, the only person that I think understands what I'm going through is the same blue-skinned brute that stole my sister. It's wrong to hook up with him, even as a mindless fling.  

Except...I'm not so good with the whole "rules" thing. And he's not so great with the "fling" thing.

Contains mature themes.

Book 8 builds on Book 7

I love the whole series! Fantastic world building that describes how stranded modern women integrate into a tribal culture of tall, hot, and build, matter of fact aliens - all wrapped up with a steamy sexy sweet romance. The characters are all unique throughout the whole series. Some books have more action then others, which focus more on tribal life and personal struggles. I can't even pick one book as my favourite - I'm afraid you'll have to read them all including the spin off series 'Ice Home'. Fantastic male/ female narrators for the audiobook version too.

Maddie & Hassan.

As much as Maddie was a bit dislikable in the last story, I liked her is this book, very sassy and full of spunk. I also liked Hassan, he only wanted to be loved. It will be interesting to see where this story ends with the craziness at the end of the book. Don’t give up if you were not a fan of Maddie in the last book, series is still great and so was this book. What this series has in abundance is the sexiness factor. Oh boy. Narrators are both good and I look forward to more from the series.

Another great Ice Planet story!

In this entertaining audiobook, we have Maddie who is the sister of Lilah from the previous book. She’s not fitting in too well and is frustrated because she feels bored and useless now that her sister has a mate. She decides to learn to hunt and asks Hassan (the alien who had kidnapped Lilah) to teach her. Before too long they give into their physical attraction, but Hassan wants more than Maddie is ready to give. When disaster strikes, Hassan and Maddie set out to find a new home for everyone. Will they ever resonate and will they find somewhere to move the tribe? Narration was well done!

Great character development.

This is book 8 in the ICE PLANET BARBARIAN SERIES and while each story stands alone, I recommend they be read in order. This is Maddie and Hassan’s story and in the beginning of the book, I did not like their characters much. When characters are unimpressive at first because of the behaviours they exhibit, with the right author, the potential for growth and development is great. And that happened here. These characters became admirable. They are still not my favourite characters in the series, but I did enjoy their romance as they were well matched and strong together. While the whole series has been sexy, most stories so far have been lovely, sweet, slow-burns to love and sex. I’d say BARBARIAN TAMING was an exception with hot, erotic beginnings. Wowza. Audible narrators Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd do a wonderful job bringing the characters to life. This series has been a welcome and unexpected boost to my romance listening enjoyment. It just keeps getting better. Not a dull moment. I recommend this series.

The funniest one! 😂

This was by far my favorite with two characters originally made to look like troublemakers. The redemption was perfectly done and I LOL’d the whole book. I love Maddie and Hassan!

Not Bad

I was dreading listening to another obnoxious and sarcastic female, but was pleasantly surprised. I really liked this interesting story. Hats off to the narrators as usual. The series all-in-all has been entertaining. Will eventually get through the entire Ice Planet series. Good job!

Pair of grouches get together

In the previous book, I didn’t care for Lila, and disliked Maddie. In this one it took until 3/4 of the way through to get past how mean Maddie is and somewhat enjoy the story. I liked Hassan okay. This was one of my least favorites.
