Summary

Twelve humans are left stranded on a wintry alien planet. I'm one of them. Yay, me. In order to survive, we have to take on a symbiont that wants to rewire our bodies to live in this brutal place. I like to call it a cootie. And my cootie's a jerk, because it also thinks I'm the mate to the biggest, surliest alien of the group.

Contains mature themes.

More Please

This is a series I kind of picked up when I wanted something light to read before I go to bed in the mids of my Anita Series.

I loved Liz’s attitude and how she handles herself. Her sarcasm is much needed.
Raahosh is the big blue alien who makes Liz get her “cootie” and then her cootie won’t shut up around him lol. It was a great second book I can’t wait to see what is going to happen with the rest of the Humans if they all find their mates. I love the humor mixed in. Really makes for a fun listen.

The narration is awesome I love it so much. Really makes you want to keep listening.
I wish more were in the RP.

Really good!!

I wasn't sure about this series because of the alien thing. But I saw the reviews and gave it a try. I really love them!! The only thing I would say is that while I liked liz' s character in the first book I didn't like how bitchy she was in this one. I loved Rahash though!!

Another slam dunk! Keep ‘em coming Audible!!!

This is book 2 of Ice Planet Barbarians, which will be really confusing if you haven’t read book 1 yet. As a devoted IPB fan I already loved this book, but then Tantor Audio added the voice actors, and...BADA BOOM BABY! Magic! I just love Liz, who has the perfect amount of snark to deal with surly scarred Raahosh. The storyline is...Well, think what might happen if a sex-starved doomsday survivalist were to remake Beauty and the Beast, soundtrack by Rick James, and you’ve got the general idea. There’s excellent chemistry between Liz and Raahosh, resulting in red hot steamy scenes. But don’t be fooled- the story would be excellent without the explicit stuff. As expected, we learn more about the planet dubbed “Not-Hoth” by the humans as we watch another couple pair off and fall in love. Trust me, though this series is up to book 16, it’s not going stale, so I’ll have to re-read the kindle version of future installments until Audible releases them. Each book is unique and imaginative, with lots of adventure and interesting characters who work together to survive this brutal world.

Fun turned serious.

This was a fun instalment to the series, but I didn’t like the human heroine, Liz, for a long time. Once I did, I thought she was funny, stubborn, determined, and a perfect match for Raahosh who initiates their relationship by kidnapping Liz. This is the second kidnapping Liz has endured and while I sympathised with her a lot, I had more of a weak spot for Raahosh. Despite that the novel turned serious and fuelled by dramatic tension toward the end, there were many funny, tender and sexy moments. I enjoyed the whole story.

There were some audio issues when Hollie Jackson narrated – sound fading in and out, occasionally a tinny sound, and other times a hint of a tinny sound. This did not bother me so much because the voice narration was excellent. Once again (as in book 1), it took me some time to become used to Hollie Jackson’s voice. She doesn’t sound 22 to me, but by the end of the book, I didn’t care. Now that I’ve listened to subsequent books in this series, I realise the voice used for Liz is just one of many voices in Ms. Jackson’s repertoire. She sounds different for each novel's heroine. What a talent.

Mason Lloyd narrated perfectly and he sounded loving, caring, and protective. Loved him.

I recommend this book for a pleasant, light, romantic and sexy listening experience.

Snarky Liz Pushes Back

Kidnapped by aliens...rescued by different aliens...refusing to have her choices taken away anymore...Liz pushes back when she is claimed....but life is changed.
Liz sometimes pushes too hard but her mate just wants to care for her...the lack of translating meaning when talked and the snark of Liz is fun, great fun stroy

Liz & Raahosh

Something about this series makes me want to binge listen to it all. Funny thing too, because it doesn’t have a lot of story line besides the stuck on a planet and romancing going on. But if you are in the mood for a sexy story that makes the time go by fast this might be for you. No prudes may apply. I like the narrators but it did take a bit for me to get use to the female narrator.

Spectacular follow up to the first book

I enjoyed this one way, way more than the first book. Liz and Raahosh are a spectacular pair. I love how she's all sassy and feisty and he's so stoic. They are the perfect compliment to one another. This story was equally comical and upsetting. I will say that the idea that Vektal came up with at the end to fix the situation after Raahash's punishment seriously pissed me off. I mean, what the hell was he thinking? Oh, wait, that's right, he wasn't thinking. I am proud of Liz, though. She did what she must to get her mate and happiness back. I'm happy with the way this one ended. I'm looking forward to reading book 2.

The narrator's did a great job of portraying the characters. They brought life to the characters and the story. I'm looking forward to listening to the next book. Well done to both the author and the narrators.

Great Series!

Really enjoying this crazy, funny, sexy series by Ruby Dixon. This book is the second in the series and I am planning to continue listening to as many as are available. While the setting is kind of crazy, the story itself is so well written that the characters themselves come across as very credible indeed. Well done!
