Alien Cyber-Warrior's Matched Mate
Desperate, she signs her life away… to the scariest alien she's ever seen.
Losing her job is the last straw for Isabella. She'll be kicked out of her apartment unless she finds more work, and living on the street is a very short death sentence. But no one's hiring a woman from the bottom rung of life's ladder and even the organ-rec companies shut the door in her face.
Which means she's desperate… desperate enough to sign up for the new Latharian mate program. Desperate enough not to run when the biggest, scariest alien she's ever seen walks into the office. Until he says she's his mate, then all bets are off…
She can run, but she can't hide. He'll find her. And he'll claim her as his.
Berrick B'Kaar has been looking for his fated mate ever since her DNA matched with his. But she's clever at hiding herself and he'd almost given up hope until he finds her in a grotty downtown recruitment office. She runs but he's not giving up. She will be his, she'll accept him as her mate eventually, even if he has to whisk her off-planet to do so.
But his courtship is derailed when events on the station almost claim his beloved's life. Someone is targeting the humans aboard. He must get to them before they get to her…
fascinating story with the hi tech aliens. i didn't like the plot of the desperate abused woman, there's no spice and challenge in that.
3.5 stars. I was so excited to read another installment of the Lathar series. Berrick is a big teddy bear. Always enjoyed him. Isa was refreshing. I liked her strength. I’ve been trying to figure out what I felt was missing from the story. I realized that we’ve always known that Berrick and Isa were going to be together. We found out when we we’re introduced to the B’Kaar. I realized I kept waiting for an epic reunion between Jay and Isa and it never came. At least not for me. I didn’t like the betrayal aspect of the story and I wanted Isa and Jay to spend more time together. I felt there was too quick of a closure, or glossing over that part of their life. It was an important piece to me. I did love watching Berrick and Isa’s love grow. It was fun. Great twist with the evil guy.
Will claiming her put her in more harm?
Alien Cyberwarrior’s Matched Mate is the seventeenth book in the Warriors of the Lathar series, but stands well on its own. Isabella has no job and is about to be homeless when she signs up for the Latharian Mate Program. She’s matched to Berrick, and while she runs, she slowly accepts her fate and match. But someone is hunting her. Will Berrick be able to keep his mate safe, or will claiming her put her in more harm?
This book had me hooked right from the very beginning! Isabella and Berrick had a connection that sparked right away, and I loved the ups and downs of their relationship. Then when you throw in the dashes of danger, I just couldn’t stop reading. Isa was such a strong character, one to always stand up against the bullies, and one who always wanted to help. She was selfless, but I loved when Berrick gave her every example of how truly special she was. Berrick was all alpha male, wanting to protect and possess his female, and I loved how he pushed himself to gain her trust and heart. I really enjoyed them together, their feisty attitudes at times, and their passionate embraces when they were ready to take that next step. There’s danger that had me excited to find out who and why, and then these was a secret that could have ruined everything before it truly got started. I loved this book! I love that I keep getting sucked into this series and world that Ms. Carter has created! And I love that I constantly want more!
