“You’d think being abducted by aliens would be the worst thing that could happen to me. And you’d be wrong. Because now, the aliens are having ship trouble, and they’ve left their cargo of human women – including me – on an ice planet.
And the only native inhabitant I’ve met? He’s big, horned, blue, and really, really has a thing for me…“ -Goodreads
So if you come from BookTok (the side of TikTok about books), you already know what is going on…
If you have graciously never heard of this book before, RUN!!
This book series has taken over my FYP (For You page) on TikTok.
The fact I am even writing a review for this book is HORRIFYING.
But in all honesty I did enjoy this book.
Did I think the 11 page sex scene was necessary? NO
Did the writing sound like a twelve-year-old-fanfiction? YES
But do I still want everyone to read it? HELL YEAH
If you have not met the 7-foot-tall aliens with ribbed you-know-whats (sorry grandma and grandpa if youre reading this right now) then you are kind of missing out.
This book is disgusting and needed 300 trigger warning but it was an experience I will never regret.
I highlighted every time something was said that was just so out-of-pocket I wanted to cry laughing.
Things like “My c*ck hasn’t forgotten this” (73), or “I’ve found an alien that likes to eat p*ssy as a greeting” (49).
This book, while trying to be a serious novel about alien abduction and surviving on a new planet, turns into something that I think of as comedy. The sex scenes had me laughing at the various nouns to describe certain body parts.
There actually is a semi-interesting plot to this story. So far, there are 20+ books out for the series so I am not too concerned that this book was basically exposition into the story on Not-Hoth (the planet they live on).
The conflicts in the book are sort of easily solved. The feminism in this went out the window no matter how hard they tried to be strong independent women. The men are utterly insane. There was a reference to sex almost every page.
This book was horrible, but in a capturing and intriguing way.
Please do not read this book but trust me you will be missing out.
Seriously, I hope that you read this, but also hope that you dont.
As always, thanks for reading,
Star Rating: 3 (only because I am going to read the next book)
