My Review -
I love this series and I LOVED this book. It has everything I want in a book, a gorgeous alpha male, and very hot romance, action and characters who you develop a connection with and enjoy.
Sara encounters an alien captain of a ship that has crash landed on the colony and she feels an instant attraction to him. What develops is a whirlwind relationship that has both craving for each other, but Davin's personal demons has him holding back from truly giving himself completely to Sara.
I loved Davin as he is described as a sexy "alien Greek God", playful, charming, suave and oozes with animal magnetism. He is very alpha, very powerful and gives it his all in every sense of the word (some of the scenes with him and Sara were incredible hot)!
Sara is a kind-hearted soul who cares for everyone, but she realizes how lonely she truly is and how she wishes someone would love him.
What made this story so touching was the relationship build up and the emotional ups and downs that occurred in the relationship.
I really enjoyed this book and recommend to anyone who enjoys reading about a romance that deals with acceptance, self-discovery and the power of love to overcome heartaches, struggles and coming to terms with one's self.
