I know I may have gone a bit overboard with the rant updates with this book, but boy did this just rub me the wrong way.I get why Olivia needed to refuse the bonding I get that the story needed that conflict in order for the reader to feel satisfied with the payoff at the end I get that there is a lot of suspension of disbelief involved in novels like this for the reading experience to actually work I get a lot of things, but at this point I can t hear the sense in all that over the sound of Oli [...]
This was setting up to be a hilariously over the top sci fi sex romp I mean, the heroine answered the door in her comfy lace teddy and thong, for cri yi some people like to relax in yoga pants, I love MERRY WIDOWS There are beautiful man aliens with astonishing parts and devoted feelings, longing to bond and give unlimited pleasure to their forever mate Also really funny the specific bonding schedule Week 1 TOUCHING Instead, we have a wet blanket tease of a heroine She did not put out like she w [...]
I don t think I ve ever gnashed my teeth before I wasn t even aware it was physically possible until now But Olivia Sweet baby Jesus, she s enough to make you try to garotte yourself with your favourite scarf and slit your wrists with the nearest paperback.How do I despise Liv Let me count the ways She s selfish to the point of stupidity She refuses to see anyone s point of view if it doesn t directly correlate with her own world view She asks herself questions endlessly but can t manage to answ [...]
3.5 StarsIs there anything perfect than a super sexy alien, or as they call themselves Kindred I don t think there is They cook, they clean, they love to give you massages, they make you come until you pass out, really what could a girl possibly want Unfortunately Olivia doesn t quite see it like that, after being chosen as one of the Kindred males bond mate she does everything in her power to resist him, she misses her twin sister, her best friend and the job she loves, being with Baird the B [...]
The scary thing is that I could actually believe in the possibility of such a thing in the future you never know what s out there And if this were to happen PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE let me be drafted Characters Claimed had me on page one with the word, Mine Mine is right Baird As in I m your s He was the perfect balance between dominance and lenience Hasty and patience Gentle and rough Affectionate and merciless Plus, he worshiped her damn body How many other men have you read about that massaged a [...]
This book was strangely fascinating, I had trouble putting it down The heroine got kind of annoying when she resisted the hero so long though I did understand her reluctance to give up her former life But how can you resist a sexy hero who is built, hung like a Clydesdale, dedicated to your pleasure and loves you The answer is you don t but the heroine doesn t realize this until almost too late I enjoyed this story and will be looking forward to the next story with her twin sister.
2.5 starsIt takes me forever to finish this book The book was interesting at first, but after Olivia s kidnapped, it went downhill Baird is a big bad alpha, in this book you ll see he has to seduce Olivia in every way It s fun to see how he tries to work out his thing, yet Olivia always turns him down.
DNF 22%Hot, huge alien hot little Earth woman lots of chemistry to make up for the lack of any kind of relationship development a bunch of boring clich s.
RATING 2.5 3 Alien Hearts
So, I gave this book a five star, when the heroine actually pushed this book to a three star on multiple occasions However, the brilliance that is this series can t be contained in a three star package I was so enveloped in this alien world, that I couldn t help but push on and just hope beyond hope that Olivia unstupid herself from this whole whiny BS she was spewing at me with her perpetual inner dialogue Olivia, oh dear Olivia You didn t get smart until the last like thirty pages of the book [...]
Evangeline Anderson is a multi published author who writes for a great amount of epublishers and many cross genres When I heard about Claimed, her self published sci fi romance, I wanted to give it a read since I ve enjoyed her past work And how could I not read a borderline erotic sci fi romance with what I call a yummy, possessive hot alpha type alien male Evangeline is great at writing steamy tension with wonderful, seductive heroes Her hero Baird is definitely one of them.Claimed is set in 2 [...]
Quickly said I adored Baird, even loved him Hated, or disliked the Waterhouse sisters They were selfish and annoying I get some of their reasons for acting the way the did and saying the things they did, but still excuse My eyes rolled a few times while reading I also wanted to smack their faces Hard Baird saved the day book though Wouldn t mind seeing of him Wouldn t mind having him in my bed eitherBaird finally understood For some reason, she was determined to resist him Well, they would see [...]
I was torn between enjoying this and finding it a serious eye roller I get kind of irked by reading really obvious fantasies and the whole concept of the alien race of men who come in three genetic forms one incredibly oversized and capable of going for hours, one that sucks blood, one that comes in sets of twins and you have to have sex with both of them at the same time well, it doesn t get much obvious than that Or so I thought until I got to the all protein, low cal alien worms that taste l [...]
3.5 out of 5Originally read 4 2 11Reread 5 30 16 Pretty much felt the same way about the story that I did the first time see below I liked this story but I did have some issues with it What I liked 1 I liked Baird first and foremost He really made the whole story for me if he hadn t been the kind, patient and loyal man he was I probably wouldn t have liked the book too much He loved Olivia and wanted nothing but to please her The great part about that is that he didn t change who he was to do th [...]
Claimed is an erotic romance, if the cover and title left any doubt Set in the very near future, an alien race known as the Kindred are protecting the earth from another alien race known as the Scourge In exchange, the Kindred have made agreements with earth to find brides from the female population If a woman is drafted, she is then forcibly removed from her house and transported to the Kindred space ship for a 4 week claiming period, with different rules of what is and what is not allowed sexu [...]
Nope Sounded like a good PWP Was boring and annoying After having seen some reviews with some rather unfortunate things being said about the heroine I started with low expectations.Because she sounded awful.And guess what.She was even worse Still, this could have been a fair read If for example the hero wouldn t have been a card board cliche ridden TGTBT alpha guy who adored the ground the insipid, stubborn, silly and boring heroine walked upon.If he had anything resembling a character If he did [...]
I didn t like this one The narrator made it worse.In this story we had a nurse, Olivia Waterhouse, who just learned she was drafted to become the bride of the Kindred The Kindred was an alien warrior race who had gotten some kind of treaty promising brides from earth in exchange for saving the earth from another malevolent race that invaded earth Once the bride bonds with the kindred, they stay on that planet with her mated kindred.There is a one month probation period in which the Kindred has t [...]
BAM Five stars Yeah that s right I love Evangeline Anderson No one does cheesy, unapologetic, total and utter crazy beefcake love like she does And despite the over the top alphas and their you re going to do this even though you don t really want to nonsense, I never want to punch them in the face That takes some skill, I tell you what.Also her sex scenes are always, always hot Even when they re really similar to sex scenes in other books of hers But then, she has written about eight million bo [...]
MINE Talk about a full body shudder I knew I would like this book just off that word alone and I was right I devoured this book The love Baird shows his mate OMG I once seriously sighed and told my husband how much a kindred loves his woman Lol The action and sacrifice makes the book that much better I ve now read every kindred bride book to date Love em.
DISCLAIMER This review has run on sentences and is way too long Also it s strictly my opinion, and I in no way mean to be disrespectful to the author or anyone who disagrees.I went into this sci fi rotica with low expectations In a way, I was pleasantly surprised, as Evangeline Anderson is actually quite good at writing sex scenes and foreplay And because that was a large part of why I bought the book, I actually enjoyed it a fair amount The dirty talk was hot and I enjoyed the sex for the most [...]
Main characters Baird and Olivia Lyv Type of Kindred bonding Beast RagerWell, there are just some books you just know that the writer was having a good time when she was writing them Like this book I can almost see the writer smiling and laughing while writing this book I certainly had a great time reading it There is an alternative future for humankind in this book The Scourge have attacked earth and Kindred warriors run to fight against Scourge and help humans survive There is only one small c [...]
This book was a meh read for me Don t get me wrong I LOVED Bairdand I thought the story was great but I just couldn t get past Olivia ugh she drove me crazy I don t want you, I want you, I hate you, oh now I feel bad, stay away from me, no touch me ooh yeah touch me, no no no how dare you touch me She was mean and cold hearted, don t get me wrong I m sure it would be hard to be taken from earth BUT she only ever thought about her self and she was just plain stupid at times I ended up feeling th [...]

My rating for this book is 2 stars.I didn t know what to expect from this book, it had mixed ratings Aliens aren t really my thing but i thought why not One word to describe this book predictable I m mean, earth female has been drafted to bond with alien male She resists and fights him Something happens she realizes what she would loose They get together Wedding, the end Th heroine Olivia Liv isn t stupid she just makes idiotic choices 80 of this book is her fighting Baird and her emotions about [...]
I ve just recently started reading science fiction romance, and I picked this one up at to give this series a chance to hook me Well, hook me it did, if me wanting to grab the next few in the series right away is any indication.The premise is pretty sexual in nature an alien race the Kindred of 95% males looking for females, and making a deal with earth to supply them with brides in order to protect the earth from another race, the Scourge who feed off negative emotions There are 3 possible mat [...]
A decent little erotic sci fi romance The sex in order to bond thing was the main thrust of 2 3rds of the story After she is forced to break the contract for marriage and leave him, the action picks up and the story is actually interesting Also the genetic traders thing was interesting and different It sets up the possibility for different types of alien actions of the heroes in further books.The sci fi elements were not the greatest here It s what I call sci fi so soft it s hazy For example, t [...]

Holy Mother of Pearl You d think I d reach a point where the earth woman must become the unwilling mate to a big brawny alien storyline would cease to titillate me YOU D BE WRONG This one was goooood and I want of the Kindred and their Brides now looks covetously in the general direction of For the most part, I liked Liv Her entire life was disrupted when she was drafted and she didn t deal well with it I m totally on board with that However her determination to deny Baird his mating rights got [...]
Holy crap.Talk about alpha overload.
