When I want some light, fun and enjoyable read I pick up a BBB one LOLWe re used to the ice plante with freezing temperatures, but here we have a tropical island with hot climate, palm trees and some very different BBBs Some have 4 arms, some are cat like, some have really big horns The hero here has 4 arms and is part of the Strong Arm clan pun intended.The core of the story is always the same girl meets a BBB, they have communication problems that parts are hilarious as always , they fall in love and mate But it s the resolution that is great and here it s spot on The writing is easy to read and their interaction is endearing and sweet So, if you want to relax and melt, do read this DNF 50%I m sorry, I can t do this Getting to 50% of the book was hard work.I love Ruby Dixon, I really do, but this is the same story all over again With four arms instead of two Four arms Four No matter how I look at it, that s not sexy.To all my four arms loving friends out there, good for you This is not my cup of tea. 4.5 StarsIf you haven t read any Ruby Dixon books, you can start with this one or if you are like me and are a fan, but you finished the Ice Planet Barbarians series, then this book is also good to start reading.A bit of the history is in the Ice Planet Barbarians, but she does a lot of recapping so you can understand In this book we go back to the roots.I wouldn t think listening to these books via audio would be great only because I find these books smutty, but to my surprise I really liked the audio I found myself listening to the books when I usually don t listen to audio books The female narrator is pretty good I like her voice and her acting is good I didn t mind her voice transitions and I think I liked the book a lot because of her I REALLY liked the male voice It s really deep and usually I don t like deep voices, but I really liked it in this one I just felt like the Hero would have a deep voice he is alien come on There s not much POV on his side, but I do like that we get it.Lauren is washed up ashore and lands on an Island On that island is an alien and his small tribe The only thing is, they don t speak the same language but they figure it out Had I been reading this book instead of listening I m not sure I would have liked it as much There s a lot of lead up and world building before you get to the heart of the story I mean Laruen has to get trapped in a pod, then thrown to sea and then finally land on the alien I didn t mind it in audio, but I can see where it can be a bit slow in the beginning I like how different this one is I like that the world is warm, that the food is scare and that the people are different The Hero has 4 arms I know get ready for it.If you are a fan of Ruby Dixon, then you won t be disappointed. Personal opinion Ruby Dixon needs to move on from this series It s getting infuriating having to read about the cootie for 25 books EVERY BOOK is the same exact plot EVERY BOOK you have to painstakingly wait for the heroine to get her shit together and accept her situation and the hero s love and the heroine is usually insufferable and annoying This is a spin off of the same series but you still have to go through chapters and chapters of the new heroines thought process It honestly makes me want to pull my hair out. 3 StarsOverall Opinion This was cute, and I do think it was nice to get away from the characters from the previous books some But, I do think that it fell a little flat for me There was a lot of other stuff going on that I felt like the romance was a side topic That was disappointing, but I get it I think maybe the other books in this spinoff series will be better, and it was also fun to get away from my usual genre and break up my usual reads I didn t hate it but I just didn t really love it either.Brief Summary of the Storyline This is Lo and K Thar s story Lo finds herself waken up on a new planet with a whole new reality She somehow gets separated from the other humans and finds herself on an island and her new parasite that helps her live on the planet has made her resonate with her true mate K Thar K Thar s clan is only made up of a few after a disaster took out most of the habitants of the island, so he is eager to start rebuilding his clan with Lo There is a communication barrier they have to work through, some sexy times, and some suspenseful momentsand they get a HFN ending.POV This alternated between Lo and K Thar s POV.Overall Pace of Story Good I never skimmed and I thought it flowed well The ending did feel a little abrupt though.Instalove No, but they resonate pretty quickly.H rating 4 stars K thar I liked him His family history was sad, but I liked the way he cared for others.h rating 4.5 stars Lo I liked her a lot She s probably one of my favorite hs from this author actually She was smart, sweet, and kept her head on straight in times of crisis.Sadness level Low, no tissues neededPush Pull Not reallyHeat level Okay They have some okay tension, chemistry, and scenes but not so much it takes away from the story not as hot as some of the other books I ve read in this series either.Descriptive sex YesOW OM drama NoSex scene with OW or OM NoCheating NoSeparation NoPossible Triggers Not reallyexcept being abducted my aliens Closure This didn t have that much closure tbh I get that it is the start of a new spinoff series, but I wanted closure for the couple I would call this a HFN ending.Safety This one should be Safe for most safety gang readers view spoiler Does Not have cheating Does Not have a descriptive sex scene with OW OM Does Not have the h or H pushing away Does have a separation between the h and H Does Not have abuse Does Not have a HEA ending hide spoiler I gotta get me a time share condo in Icehome Ruby Dixon s spin off series to Ice Planet Barbarians, called Icehome, features a hunky blue camo alien with four arms and buns of steel and a heroine who is probably the least annoying Dixon has penned since Georgie, who started off this entire adventure about 20 books novellas back The new locale was great, the sexual tension yummy, and the set up for the next 20 or so books was divine Keep bringing em on, RD This new series will be my favorite place to vacation when I need some feel good, smexy fun Book source Kindle Unlimited There is only one word that come to mind when I think about this book The Icehome series is reviving our barbarian tribe by mixing it up a little bit Ruby introduced to us sixteen new human females and four new alien males in this series But that s not all She introduced some new clans made up from some decedents of the Sakh The Clan of the Strong Arm, The Clan of the Tall Horn, and the Clan of the Shadowed Cat Some of the newbies have already paired up, so I am sure this series will be just as lengthy as Ice Planet Barbarians Yay I have seen some reviews ranting that this is the same series as IPB I understand their frustration, but this is just the first book Chill outThey have to have their cootie to survive if Ruby did away with them, then the foundation of the tribe would just be one big lie Also, this is a paranormal romance, so there has to be resonance I m not sure what you were expecting Once the newbies are educated and stable, I m sure the basics will change and grow However, I am not going to complain about the IPB characters crashing the IceHome series I mean, how funny was Liz at the beginning of this bookI just love her Although, I do have one tiny rant I made this same comment in my The Corsair s Captive s review She is rushing, and some books have already suffered for that However, Ruby does acknowledge it I found it funny that she made a joke about it in the author s note that she was channeling her inner Oprah You get a book AND you get a book While I will never complain that I get to read a book every month from the talented Ruby Dixon, I just think about what the story could have been if it got a chance to fully develop Shrugs All in all, this series is going to be just brilliant Ruby has laid some serious groundwork to build upon I can t wait for the next book 4 Stars Find of my shenanigans at Sincerely, Whitney This series is getting better and better I love how their worlds are expanding and what a good job Ruby dixon has done with series I never thought there will be different people in Ice planet when I first started reading this I liked the idea of new clans she created along with the people And her heros are always gold Heroines not so much Her imagination and the way book was written was interesting.Still I have some complaints Like how selfishly some of the characters behave or portrayed For example in this book when Lo tried to help Marisol by dragging her away from the sky claw , she slapped her hard ,she wanted to go near her mate And I wonder to do what And she didn t apologize for that Similar things happened previously too Like in Kira s book claire snapping at her when asked about her night time visits She came across as a rude girl As a result I didn t like her so I didn t read her book Lets not forget about infamous Asha And tiffany bad decisions.sometimes the heroine s whining is very annoying talking about whole series here Like stacy in her book In this it was Marisol Clearly time was running out and they needed every hand they get And instead of helping the clan, Marisol was simply sitting and crying near her mate And her fondness for hiding irritated me so much Not responding while she hides Ughh just like my 2 year old son.Another thing is everybody are envious of others Some for silly things For example Lo was envious of a bird because her mate was petting said bird in distress Really I think I m petty like that.But still I will read from this author and this series.
