    Tedious, boring, no action for 85% CLIFFHANGER tease The cover is incredibly misleading I saw it and thought Mars needs women, sweet So wrong.If you enjoy strong heroines, stay away from this story However, if you are actually going to read this book after reading my review seriously, please start a tally on how many times Chelan weeps tears up cries wails collapses goes catatonic in this book.This is a long book about Mary Sue Chelan who is super duper special brilliant, studies everything to the Nth degree, learns languages in a snap, is beautiful but has no self esteem or confidence Mary Sue Chelan feels oppressed by her parents who are smothering her in their high expectation of her life after she has just attained her PhD in aeronautics So to celebrate, she gives herself some needed space from her parents goes camping out in the wilderness she s not familiar with BTW I never got into her character despite very good writing Chelan gets kidnapped by aliens doing repairs to their aircraft on this primitive world One of the aliens is an anthropologist and wants to have her as a sample of intelligent life from this planet She tries to fight, runs, falls only to hit her head in a near fatal wound.so the aliens that are immediately taken with her delicate beauty take her onto their battle cruiser, RIBUS 7.The doctor patches her up and all the aliens agree that they shouldn t have brought her on board This battle cruiser is an alien free zone and bringing an alien into it is a big No No However, every officer that comes into the medical bay instantly falls under the spell of her unconsious delicate beauty Eventually the top dog Overlord, Korba stomps in to tear some asses up and kill the alien they ve brought aboutuntil he sees her and falls for her delicate alien beauty It s not described as insta lust, they just want to care for and protect her.These aliens Iceaneans from the cold planet Iceanea have plenty of their own women, as well as genetic breeding programs which prohibit them from breeding with lesser genetic material.I won t go into much of the plot or setting because they were repetitive as hell to me There are two Battle cruisers, RIBUS 7 RIBUS 8 There are two Battle Commanders for each ship Korba is the commander for RIBUS 7 and is actually over all the other commanders, or The Overlord Dar is the Commander of RIBUS 8 and Korba s best friend.The setting for 95% of this book is in one of the two commander s suites That got old.You don t see much as the readeryou only learn things as Chelan reads about them on the computer, or one of the men thinks about them Like how their battle gear cloth is made I spent over 1.5 pages reading about where the lizard lives and how it makes it s nests out of this great material they create, and everything this material is good for banging head on desk There was a LOT of that I know a lot of people enjoy all the details I know the author probably put a lot of effort into these descriptions and scenes.but I have to say that it did nothing for me except make me want to skim Seriously, I didn t see that information s impact on the plot.I can t complain about how much time the author spent talking about aeronautics because I skimmed that part.I did unfortunately read through the breeding Genetic lines of the Empirewhich read like the Adam begat Esau, who begat Jim, who begat Ted part of the Bible Yes, I realize my Biblical example is incorrect Every male that lays eyes on Chelan wants her Chelan only wants Korbauntil they have a misunderstanding and then she wants others But it doesn t matter because the Iceanean culture is not monogomous Chelan has emotional hang up over her human hangups with monogamy It causes tears and breakdowns.Chelan actually cries and freaks out constantly which really got on my last damn nerve I was rooting for her suicide attempt to work at one point because I felt she had earned it.There was no real action to speak of Except for a little lead up to Korba leaving to go battle them away from the RIBUS battle cruisers The Empire of which the Iceaneans are the muscle is being undermined by a group calling itself R.O.P.E Korba takes half a million troops to go put them down, and the reader gets to see very little of that One chapter actually The rest of the time, the warriors discuss it in front of Chelan.There were two major plot points that NEVER were answered in this book and I assume at least one of them will be addressed in the sequel grumble The first point that I was actually looking forward to was how the Emperor would react to Chelan Everyone was scared the Emperor would come down on exile etc whoever ended up with Chelan Second point was this big celebration party for winning the battle against ROPE Chelan was to be presented as the mate to you figure it out.But the story never ever got around to covering those.Sex HA Sex doesn t occur until the 83% mark.Chelan was raped As it turns out, she was raped at a very young age by her doctor But you don t find this out until near the end So she is massively afraid of the penis Lots of crying after minimal make out sessions included in the story It isn t until 83% that Chelan finally hooks up That hookup doesn t work out so wellbut they try again and there s some decent steamyness around the 95% markbut by then I was so annoyed that I d read this whole thing that I was skimming.The good The author writes quite well.The bad holy shit this was just drama DRAMA drama over and over with no real payoff until the very end and only then it was partial.Recommended as filler only.

    considering how long the book was it left out some of the important details that readers would be interested in the main character spent so little time with the one that she ended up with that it is hard to see how why she loved him She spent much time and sensual scenes with two other male characters 2 it ended rather abruptly the reader never gets to see when the protagonist , who spent over 6,000 Kindle version pages sequestered in one or two rooms, is finally introduced to the Overlord s ship full of warriors 3 the world building is all based on what other characters mention or what the heroine reads We have all of these pages, a huge battle cruiser filled with a half million or and we see very little of it.While the heroine is intellectual and over time gains physical skills, she is not strong emotionally In a time where strong female characters are the norm than the exception, this protagonist is distressingly weak, fearful and passive she did suffer a childhood trauma She reminded me of the heroines of the 70 s and the 80 s than one of the 21st century.There were many pages that described geology and fighter jets no, she never gets in one than are needed to make the points of why they were mentioned in the first place.The book is very long and I stuck with it because I kept waiting to see whth whom she would wound up with or maybe several whoms because it seemed that she was heading for a menage relationship and I kept waiting for her to woman up.Nothing in the blurb said that this would be a serial, and at over 6,000 pages all questions should have been answered, but as I stated earlier, it ended abruptly without including the type of scenes that would have made the book much satisfying, so this makes it read like a serial I understand that this is the first book published by the author and it shows, however, overall, it was worth reading and I am looking forward to reading the next book in the series to see if there is character growth and to finally see what the Empire, the Emperor Ticees, and the world of the Iceanea are like.

    Drama started out as fun, but then, as the book went on and on , it was just too o o o much soap opera drama The writing was fine, though the dialogue was somewhat stilted Which brings me to my main point the heroine was an indecisive, immature, manipulative, hypocritical, fickle tease, and I DESPISED her.

    3.5 stars I really love the fact that it was a very good length book 600 pages, I believe I just really wanted a sci fi adventure and I got it Somewhat.Some problems with the books She built this AWESOME relationship but not with the hero himself With the hero, it was like insta love Which was very disappointing.It left off in an awkward spot I can t wait for the 2nd book because it is a very interesting book I just wish the plot and the direction the author went in was a bit different We end up loving the hero s friends and comrades rather him So yeah.There was TONS of overwhelming information about how things work in space vs Earth and I didn t really understand most of it, BUT I like that the details are there because it just makes it seem well thought out the world building.It s not my favorite because there are just so many kinks that needs to be worked out but damn, it s just such a nice length sci fi book and there s not many out there.

    I saw other reviewers saying that the main character was deeply irritating, and I thought I can handle that I was wrong The heroine throws tears and hysterics and comatose states whenever any of her numerous beaus looks at mentions ever in the past having sex with another woman, while she herself has a deep need to kiss and fondle multiple male partners they all tolerate it completely, of course And then she tries to kill herself 5 seconds later she is rescued and the incident is never mentioned again I mean what crackpot tries to kill herself and all the hero can say is along the lines of I m sorry I was mean, this is all my fault I can t help but conclude that an author who thinks any of these suicide attempts, hissy fits, and multiple one sided relationships, along with a fantasy of complete sexual irresistibility, must herself have a borderline personality disorder Look it up.

    Ribus 7 is an absolutely amazing book It is hundreds of pages long and I did not see one error The research that had to go into this book related to topography and aeronautics alone is astounding The romance s are deeply felt and allowed to progress and grow I have come to love and become invested in these characters I so love Fremma, Dar, Korba, Stose, Chelan,Tarn and the rest of the crew I want everyone to have a HEA We will have to see what Shae s other books bring us The world building is fantastic, the character development flawless, as is the writing I was never bored and remained glued to my kindle, very unhappy when the book ended I so wanted to learn even about these characters and the Empire Chelan is an American who is out camping and inadvertently comes upon aliens repairing their aircraft An accident occurs and Chelan is transported to Ribus 7 where all the fun begins The main Warlord who is the Empire s Overlord, Korba, takes an interest in her but circumstances do not allow their continued interaction An intergalactic conflict becomes a terrifying reality for the crews of Ribus 7 and 8 Yes, there are of these huge battle cruisers While Korba is away fighting, Chelan is befriended by another Warlord, Dar and Korba s Head of Security, Fremma I love these two men, hardened warriors yet kind and gentle The culture in this Empire is very different from earth and it is enthralling to watch Chelan try to come to terms with this related to her experiences on Earth There is so much to the story but you need to read it and experience it for yourself I very highly recommend this book for Sci fi and romance lovers and all readers who enjoy an extremely well written space opera It is a rarity that we come across a gem like Ribus 7 and an author like Shae Mills I cannot wait for and book 2 is on the way Thank you, Shae, for an incredible escape into another reality I will be rereading this book again and again

    I could have forgiven the writing but for the characters being everything from a genius,alien,perfectly beautiful,rocket scientist.just left out president and fire fighter.Read like a bad online roleplayers post The characters knew everything and the girl was beautiful even with her extra weight that she would lose and build a new spaceship because she was a genius everyone said and it showed but of course she was shy and..and..andalso competed in self defense classes and and This is wrote this way on purpose because it is how it read Unfortunately as much as I tried it was hard to get past the multi one liners and know all and be all the characters were within the first 5 pages.

    RIBUS 7Wow Impressive world building as well as charactersI picked this up originally as a kindle unlimited read, but I ll be going back to purchase this one I know that it s one I ll want to read again later And I am looking forward to devouring the next book in the series as well.I think I would classify this as sci fi than romance though, just sayin.There are a few minor editing mistakes here and there, but they don t detract from the flow of the story and not as many as I expected for a novel of this length either.Fair warning everything is not wrapped up when this one ends, but I would say that it doesn t leave you completely hanging at the end either zittern

    Not a genre I usually read, but I loved this story of an Earth woman, Chelan, who is taken by aliens of Iceania and must learn to adapt to their ways The Iceanians also find they must change their behavior to accommodate the vulnerable human I really enjoyed the descriptions of the Iceanians, their history and their way of living I am looking forward to the second book in the series

    Oh My Ever Lovin Stars There are no words to fully express how awful I found this book Well there are, but they aren t fit for my mind, let alone mixed company Y allI totally agree with the other reviewers that low starred this one The blurb sounded great I loved this premise But for the loveas much as this author can actually write really, she can, and it was very easy to read , the characters just couldn t come off the page I am struggling just to get as far as I ve gotten I m really wanted to like this book but I can t stand Chelan as the heroine And for some strong willed, strong minded, alpha males that hate aliens , all the Heroes just seem to fall all over Chelan FOR NO APPARENT REASON Seriously What s the draw I can t any I just can t.I m calling it Place of DNF 40%.
