The Ujal, #1

Very short but showed the authors writing style to be fresh and engaging. The premise of a race that can live both on land and the ocean was refreshing. Rather than being separated when mated, their biological advances allowed them to share this ability with their mates. Bigotry and race discrimination plays a major part in Maris's crisis, which is what brings Vados and her back together.

The lack of follow up by both Maris and Vados led to a lot of hurt and despair on both their parts. A heart hurt is afraid to reach out, so it was understandable, but still, very frustrating to get through. The chemistry was good, the alpha male that Vados exhibited was hot and the world building good but not complete. I would have liked more information on why the Ujal had to branch out to Earth, etc. A good read.

Book Blurb for Vados

A human woman, a tail-sporting alien, and a deadly hurricane… of course they’re going to hook up! Or rather, they did hook up. But that was then. This is now.

As a marine biologist, Maris Xayer is used to observing all types of marine life, but she never imagined she’d come face to tail with an Ujal. In the middle of a hurricane, Maris and Vados came together—ahem—and then he disappeared. She figured it was a one-storm stand with an Ujal and moved on. Except Vados hadn’t really gone anywhere and now the sexy as sin, red-skinned Ujal is back. For her.
