Well, I have to say, I have read a book by Lolita before and I didn’t really like it. But like any good reader out there, I always give an author another shot. Let me be the first to say I AM SO GLAD that I did with her!! This book completely surpassed any thoughts that I might have had with it and I couldn’t put it down once I had started it. It was even to the point where I told one of my friends they had to get the book when I was about half way through.

This book was great; there was the right balance between the erotica, suspense, and romance that kept the pages turning. I was halfway through the book before I even realized that I was that far along. I enjoyed the fact that even though there was the sci-fi aspect to the story, it didn’t take it over completely. In fact, you forget about it while you are reading. At least that’s what happened with me!

The characters themselves were written well, you could tell the chemistry between them as the story progressed. Menace comes off as sort of a jerk in the beginning, but as the story goes along, you can tell how soft hearted he actually is. Now with Naya, she seemed completely perfect to me in almost every sense. She did what she had to do to survive, and she showed true compassion when it came to her friends.

Overall, this is a complete must read from me! I will be sure to keep my eyes out for other books in this series!

I gave this book three stars not because the story was soso, it wasn't. I very much enjoyed the the story of Menace and Naya. The characters were well rounded, well written, the story fast-paced and gripping.

My problem is that after reading and enjoying Grabbed by Vicious, a 476 page book, I happily paid $8.00 each for Menace and Venom only to find that they are each are less than 300 pages. Menace is actually only 224! If you're going to charge so much for a book, at least make it a full length book and not what I consider a novella.

    This book is perfectly fine being read as a stand alone. I say that because that’s exactly what I did, and I wasn’t lost. Of course the characters from the first book make appearances in this book, you don’t need to know what happened in the last book to enjoy this story. In fact, reading it as a stand alone allowed me to live in the moment with Naya.

    Naya is a human who lives a rough life on her home planet. She’s gotten by as best as she could since she was abandoned as a young teen by her family. When her best friend’s number is pulled for the grabbing, she pays her way onto the list. Which isn’t really hard to do since no one really wants to be grabbed and mated to an alien. During a grabbing, aliens from a spaceship come to the planet in hopes of grabbing a bride. The women get a few minutes head start and soon the aliens follow. If they are able to grab a woman before she reaches the safe zone, they get to keep her and take her back to their ship. Which of course is where Naya finds herself, grabbed by an alien.

    I liked the story and the sci-fi element of aliens and humans but I didn’t feel like it was sci-fi enough. The aliens were described as being really tall with pale hair and eyes. So of course I picture a blond haired, green eyed NBA star. I’m not saying that the aliens need to have tentacles coming from their neck or eyeballs on their biceps but at least give them horns, insane body colors or something to make it more sci-fi. I’d say even Jabba the Hutt would do, but let’s be honest here, there’s nothing sexy about that. All I’m saying is make them not appear to be human. I just felt like I was reading a futuristic novel about two humans and that really knocked the book down for me since I really wanted a heavy sci-fi element to this story, and I didn’t get it.

    Aside from that, I did find the story enjoyable. I liked the suspense of the grabbing and the fact that some people from other, less fortunate sections look at being on the grab list as a blessing because of the horrid conditions that they live in while others are terrified of having their number drawn. The erotic parts were nicely written and evenly spaced out to where they didn’t overrun the story but complimented it with appropriate scenarios.

    Is this a series that I’ll keep up with? I think if they become available for review, I definitely will. It was an enjoyable read.
