Alyssa has finally saved up money to purchase a "pet". Jax is a feral animal-alien male who Alyssa jumps at. Jax has no desire to be the sex toy of Alyssa. From the get go he wants nothing more than to be free, but neither can deny there's a sexual attraction.
The blurb for this book sounded a lot better than the actual book itself. There were some funny, sexy, and even some heartwarming parts, but it just was an okay read. I really wanted to like this book because the blurb sounded promising. But I just couldn't connect with the story. I read through it twice and it felt disconnected. The author needed to keep my attention with a stronger plot direction.
The point of view stayed constant. Grammatically, there were no flaws or errors. The plot was just not strong in my opinion and focused mainly on the sexual attraction that in some spots were hit and miss.
Alyssa Cressfield always wanted a pet—a big, sexy man who would look impressive on a leash. Now, she is finally ready to realize her dream. She visits a pet training center, intending to buy a trained pet. Instead she finds Jax, a fierce human-alien hybrid freshly caught from space, still untamed and unbroken. Alyssa has never encountered an untamed pet before. She can’t resist temptation; she must have him.
On Silenia, it is customary for humans to keep other intelligent species as pets and sex toys. Alyssa is kind at heart, but she is a product of her society and therefore sees nothing wrong with keeping a man in a cage against his will. Jax, on the other hand, is a space pirate who now finds himself wearing a collar and being treated like property. He has no intention of turning tame and obedient, and a battle of wills ensues. Jax and Alyssa quickly discover their undeniable chemistry, but is it enough to reconcile them? What happens when the pet breaks out of his cage?
Note to reader: This is a standalone novel featuring a romance between a human and a human-alien hybrid. While not dark, the story is set in a dystopian society and contains some raunchy sex scenes between the main characters. Recommended for mature readers.
