Publisher's Summary

She’s been promised a dream wedding. The catch? She was abducted from Earth, and her groom is a hot alien warrior with a bad attitude.

Taken to a high-tech space station designed to entice human women, LA socialite Mandy is anything but impressed. She’s not falling for their holographic fantasy suites, their promise of a dream wedding, or their gorgeous, brawny warriors. Especially not the arrogant, hot-shot commander she’s been matched with. He may be used to being obeyed, but no way is she following his orders. She could care less that he's huge and ripped and drop-dead gorgeous. Right?

The last thing Dorn wants is a mate. As a Drexian commander tasked with defending his people from a menacing enemy, he has no use for a frail human mate. Even if they are his species’ last chance for survival. Especially not one as spoiled as her.

But unfortunately for him, he has no choice. Not if he wants to get back to his battleship and save both Earth and the Drexian race from extinction.

This stand-alone action romance novel features steamy scenes on a holographic fantasy space station, a high-strung alien wedding planner with a penchant for platform shoes, deadly aliens hell-bent on invading Earth, and smoking-hot Drexian warriors with extra erogenous zones who are equally determined to protect Earth.

If you like hot alien warriors, kick-ass Earth women, and steamy romance with a "happily ever after" and a few laughs, you’ll love Tamed, the first book in Tana Stone’s sci-fi romance Tribute Brides of the Drexian Warriors series.

Erotica/Lady Porn with minimal SciFi

This is straight up Erotica with a bare bones storyline. I was more interested in the SciFi ARC than with the explicit sex scenes. 


Lol, I'm a prude and see no reason why they couldn't be married 1st. Anyway, Mandy & Dorn have interesting character traits and I wish the two were fleshed out more. Haha, they were definitely in the flesh zone. 


World building was great, although, visualizing the bomber wasn't so clear. The ending wasn't as satisfying as I would have liked. But, it certainly does lend itself towards reading the next book...for me it would mostly be for the storyline. I'm personally not into all of the pornographic scenes. Sooo, a tall star because of her story telling skills. :-) 


My star ratings include these 5 elements:

1★ story line

1★ engaging characters

1★ use of world building/descriptions

1★ the ending

1★ narration or editing

Tamed

Enjoyed the story, but the narrator left some room for improvement. She sounded a little to whiny for my liking. But I would read the next book in the series, as I did get a chuckle from this one

Okay

There heroine starts out a brat, but does grow out of it by the end so I got over my initial annoyance. There was nothing really wrong with this book but nothing really stood out either. It's similar to other books in the genre and too generic.

Fun Different Galactic Story

I enjoy the galactic SYFY style book and have read many.This is my first story from Tana Stone. I found it to be a fun generally lighthearted story with a little action. I wouldn't say it was non stop engrossing that you can't put it down, but it was enjoyable and I will continue with the series.

You have Mandy who is a bored socialite, but doesn't realize her bad choices are due to boredom. She doesn't see anything wrong with her behavior but has issues with abandonment, trust, and self image. She was a very rich spoiled girl who people wanted to be her "friend" because of who her father was. Many saw her as a stepping stone. Her popularity was vastly diminished due to being in a photo where a "friend" had insulted a son of another rich powerful person. This has basically made her a pariah and people drop her faster than you can say boo. So she became and Instagram influencer. The story begins with her making an Instagram post where she is meeting a childhood "friend". Her friend drops her because she is no longer considered to be an acceptable person to be friends with. Then she also sees a media blip about her father dropping her too. After confirming that her father will talk to her when she is better behaved and won't be giving her anymore allowance she wakes up in a studio for a game show. When in reality she is thousands of light years away being matched to an alien by his brother. Talk about bad behavior because she was sick of being considered unacceptable!!! This part was actually my favorite part. Don't you sometimes want to say F*** it all and just make a splash. well she did and got the shock of her life.

Dorn is a commander of the Drexian fleet that is on the outskirts of their space protecting them from the Kronocks. He is pissed that his brother called him to the love boat and wants nothing to do with the boat as its nicknamed. Once there he finds out he has been selected to be a groom and cannot refuse for honor's sake and because he is the last of his line that can reproduce. He seriously dislikes Mandy and the situation.



I liked the growth Mandy showed. Her maturity once she got it in her brain she was accepted for who she was and not who she knows. She discovers her self worth and love. it was great watching them warm up to each other and fall it love. It was funny, The chemistry was hot, and the descriptions were well thought out. although it was predictable for the most part. I wanted to know a Kronocks looked like but didn't discover that until the end and it surprised me. I would say a good beginning to the series and worth a credit.

Great read!

This was a great short read. The dynamics between Dorn and Mandy were fantastic. You could really see Mandy's character develop. You won't be disappointed with this book.

Spaced out wedding

Amusing romp in space for females abducted from earth for reproduction. Almost gave up on story after 1hr as the female lead is so tiresome and predictable but persisted and story got funnier and better becoming more of an adventure than just space porn.

Dorn is not your expected Star Ship Commander; his lovable character brought to life very well by the excellent female narrator.

If those pesky Chronoks meet the Markus Models, then that will be a battle worth listening to lol.

At 7hrs long, it would be perfect to listen to on flight, keeping the other passengers interested to know just what you were listening to as you chuckle your way through the book.

HEA? Some loose ends tied, but others left gaping ready for the next book in the series.

Loved the story and the narration.

I have to say that I read this book a while ago so it's a given that I love the story, but hearing it has added so much to it! I love the way that Jodie Bentley has brought the characters to life. She is very easy to listen to and I could easily tell who is who. This is a great start to the series.

Enjoyable

Not the most likeable heroine at first but she grows on you. Same with the hero. This was an interesting premise with good secondary characters and a rich setting that is well described by the author. An enjoyable read.
