Overview

Taken by the Beast by Anya Summers

Gemma's life was nearly perfect. She's just graduated from college and is heading off to graduate school in the fall. She and her best friends are taking a trip she's always dreamed about. Only, nothing goes as planned. After being chased on the streets of Dublin by a freaking monster, they get sucked into a portal and wind up on another world. As in, not Earth. Now she can't find her friends, but there is this really hot, naked guy who calls himself a king and is offering her aid.
There's only one teensy little problem: He says she's his mate and is planning on keeping her-forever. Oh, and there's one more thing: He's a beast most of the time. And Gemma has to decide if she's willing to give up everything for the one man she's meant to be with in the universe.

I'm a huge fan of Anya Summers, so when I saw this I knew I had to read it. Like her other books, this one didn't disappoint! It had the perfect blend of sci-fi and shifter romance that I found very enjoyable. The heat level, action, suspense, and amazing characters made this one that I will read again and again.

Gemma and her friends are vacationing in Ireland. After an evening of drinking they get lost and attacked by a winged monster and then fall through a dark mist. The three girls are separated and this is Gemma’s story. She opens her eyes and discovers a huge wolf standing over her. When she wakes from her faint, she meets King Orion. Not only has she come to a new world but he claims she is his mate. She’s only sure she has to find her friends. Fun fast read. There’s more to Orion than she wants to believe but she’s not in Kansas anymore. I liked the characters although I had some irritation with inconsistencies. Still it is fiction and a fun hot read. I'm looking forward to more by this author (in this series). (I voluntarily reviewed an ARC).

Amazing and strong characters … fated mates … off the charts chemistry … intense, potent, and hot sex scenes. Definitely recommended! I look forward to the next book in this series.

A really good shifter romance with a twist. As much as I enjoyed this book about three friends who find themselves on another planet that is both alike Earth and not, it did have some errors in it. The biggest one for me was when Orion tells his brother that Gemma's "language is one we haven’t used for thousands of years” and yet neither Gemma nor anyone she speaks to has any trouble understanding her nor does she have trouble understanding them. Having said that, the rest storyline is really good as is the dialogue between everyone. It's an alien/shifter romance and it gets hot enough between Gemma and Orion to melt your Kindle. I am truly looking forward to the next book in the series. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Gemma and her adopted sister and their friend Anna Moira were on a post graduation trip to Ireland. On their first night when they're walking to their hotel in the middle of the night they see a humanoid monster with wings. It chases them to a dead end street. The monster is about to kill them when suddenly a black hole opens behind them and they enter it to escape. They fall into another world and each of the three women are transported into a different place. Gemma is transported into the forest where she encounters a massive wolf. She faints and the wolf turns out to be king Orion her mate. This novel is about their relationship. While searching for Moira and Anna they fall in love. The king's enemy the Clovis make trouble for the mated pair. This an enjoyable story with werewolves, vampires and witches. This an erotica. I liked it and am looking forward to the next novel, Moira and the vampire King's story. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

A great steamy read with an alien beast The story has great plot - the pacing is steady and smooth. I keep turning the pages till the very end. An alpha male with a fiesty female heroine - very sizzling combination. Adventure, action and a steamy romance rolled into one - their passion is sizzling althroughout. . Its also good to note of the dual POV here, I really liked that. I have to say that there are some holes in the story and since this is the beginnning of the series, the next story might patch it up for me I hope.

This was my first book I read by this author and I found it well written. the H +h were strong believable characters in this paranormal/sci-fi romance that was a enjoyable read that I couldn't put down. Gemma and her friends - Moira and Anna - decide to vacation in Ireland after graduating from college. They decide to visit a pub and on their way back to their hotel they get lost and some flying monster appears chasing them down a alley that dead ends. All a sudden a black portal appears and they enter it to escape the monster but through the portal they get separated. This book deals with what happens to Gemma who wakes up with a huge wolf over her. When she sees it she screams and faints and wakes up later naked in bed with a man in the room who introduces himself as King Orion. Gemma wants to find her friends and Orion wants to keep her and check her story out about how she arrived in his territory because she's his mate, but Gemma escapes and Orion follows. What happens next is full of challenges and romance while they get to know each other. Does Gemma find her friends? Do Orion and Gemma become mated? Since I love this genre, I'll definitely keep my eye out for the next book in this series about Moira experiences on the world of the planet Destruna. I volunteer to read and review this ARC.
