Sophie Perez has never believed the stuff she reads online about possible life in space. Aliens are for the movies, for the weirdoes, and they most definitely are not real.

One night on the way home from a late shift at work, her car breaks down. Stranded on the side of a country road, with a dead cell phone, doesn’t seem like that big of a deal.

Until strange neon lights appear in the sky. She thinks it is her imagination.

When an inexplicable circular ship appears overhead, she can’t deny what’s clearly right in front of her. Especially when moments later, she’s taken onto the ship, a human hostage among those who are most definitely not human. About to become a human guinea pig, possibly worse, the last thing she ever expects is to like the things these otherworldly beings subject her to. In fact, it is unlike anything she’s ever experienced.

Will Sophie find her way back to her planet, or will she beg to stay where her pleasure is literally out of this world?



This is my first Cambria Hebert novella and I read all three parts in one sitting. Will it be my last? Most certainly not! I really enjoyed this book despite it's sort of creepy and perverted beginning.

As soon as Sophie is abducted by the "alien", he begins to do his "experiments" on her. This was my only issue with the book. Not only was it kind of, sort of, definitely rape, but she liked it. She also wasn't angry enough about the results of his experiments. Go figure 'cause I would've brought that entire hovercraft crashing to the ground if that had been me.

Otherwise, I thought the romance aspect was smoking. The feelings between them were believable and the love scenes were HOT FIYAH! I loved the way Cambria described what Sophie felt for Tarek. Again, it was totally believable. There was a sort of love triangle in this story but it ended in a way that was apparent and hinting at another novella that explores another relationship. This one will be even more interesting, that's for sure.

Overall, I enjoyed the plot and the writing. And can I say that I really love the cover? Very nice and represents Tarek perfectly. Do I recommend? You better believe it! With excellent writing and a very interesting storyline, you will get sucked right into this story and never be able to let go.
