Sparrow Is A Street Smart, Savvy Cop No Scratch That She Just Made Detective She S Strong, Self Assured, And Fairly Satisfied With Where She S Going In Life Her Only Sadness Is The Longing For Family But Then, Her Life Suddenly Changes In The Middle Of The Night When She Gets Unexpected Company She S Heard Stories Of Alien Abductions She Gives In To It Fairly Easily She Ll Be Back In Bed By Morning With No Memory Of It Anyway, Right Navar Is A Ruler Of A World Very Similar To Earth For Some Time Now, He Has Been Watching The Women Of His Race Die Off Unexpectedly Or Become Barren He Is A Just And Fair King He Would Never, Under Normal Circumstances, Take Part In The Trafficking Of Women From Another World But, His People Are Beginning To Suffer And Desperate Times Call For Desperate Measures Fun concept could use depth though. As a novel definitely two stars but as novella it probably been The plot was pretty interesting It just needed a lot substance There was a ton of jumping around and little to no flow in the story Sad because I wanted to like it Good characters but needed of pretty much everything. This book went to fast and didn t really create a believeable story I mean one minute the silver hunk guy was all like I hate hairy primates then minutes later he was all like I have been waiting so long for you WTF I mean they didn t show him getting over his human issues at all. Not much to this short tale. First in book series from a new to me author Interesting and promising premise that I have seen so many times before but still hope that a new or different angle will have me falling in love with it and add another author to my must buy category Unfortunately other than a few variances this is a cookie cutter developed plot storyline The main reason though is, IMHO, that it is so short that it never really had a chance to develop itself so many facts world building was stated without explanation or back up that I just felt like Alice falling in a whole in Alice In Wonderland One non spoiler What the heck is the significance if there is one of the different colors of the aliens Just didn t get it Also, regarding the twists and turns factor in this book While the twists did make for a good story line premise and reveal, the lack of any supporting evidence or hints, it just didn t make sense Sparrow, a police detective, could handle bad guys and crime on Earth or she wouldn t be in that position Yet, when she finds out about the actual existence of aliens, she calmly and passively goes with the flow There was just too many distracting secondary characters, subplots, and incomplete world building in this book for me to enjoy it as presented A case where the short word count did not work Which is a shame as I wanted to like the overall premise of this series and see the others get a HEA story of their own.
