Summary

I've never spent a day without my mate since arriving on the ice planet. I'm happy and in love, and we have a beautiful child together. All that changed when the world shook.   

My mate nearly died.  

He wakes up from his coma...and he can't remember me. Or our son. Every memory of the past two years is gone. And that changes everything between us. How can I love someone that doesn't remember me?  

How can I not, when I know he's still my mate underneath it all?  

Contains mature themes.

Not sure so far. Few hours left...

So far.... spoilers btw Pashov nearly died and when recovered couldn't remember Stacy or his child. Despite that, he's trying to be her mate again and a father again, whilst struggling with the fact he can't remember them and wishing he could. Yet, it doesn't seem good enough for Stacy because he doesn't do the things he did before, like touch her the way he had or kiss her. She sleeps with him and then regrets it because she feels it's a betrayal to his old self and feels guilty. Wtf? Seriously, I can understand she misses certain things between them, but at least he's alive!! and is trying to make her happy. Doesn't that count for something? You'd think him being dead would be worse than losing his memory of her and their kit, but it isn't coming across that way. They have a second chance where they can make new memories, but she just seems to want the old him. She comes across as ungrateful and selfish, despite her telling herself otherwise and trying to make up excuses. She is my least favourite female in this series so far... whuch is something as i liked all the others. It would have made more sense if he were the reluctant one considering he was the one who almost died and lost his memory, but it's her. Never thought I'd say this about one of these books, but it's annoying me so bad right now...or at least Stacy is. Despite that, it's still entertaining and I'll continue to listen on just to see how the others are and their move to the new home found in the previous book.

whiny female alert

I really like a series. But his particular one, the main character female just whines. The entire book. I really would like give me the opportunity to slap her in the back of the head to wake her up. Life happens get over it and get past it.. Unfortunately, the entire book is less about action, and more about what's going on inside of her head.

Painfully weepy, dense heroine

Should’ve made it a drinking game to drink every time Stacey cries, complains, or looks to the negative side of things. Except I don’t drink. Drat. Fast forwarded in 30 second increments every time Stacey was on. Very unsatisfying book. I got the first 6 books for “free” through Audible Escape flat monthly rate and loved them. Haven’t felt any book since then was worth the full price demanded. Feels like the author is working overtime to earn money and struggling to come up with different plots for each new alien/human couple.

Re-building a life.

This is book 9 in the ICE PLANET BARBARIAN SERIES and while each story stands alone, I recommend they be read in order. This is Stacy and Pashov’s story. I was hesitant about reading it because of the numerous negative reviews about Stacy’s so-called whining and poor-me attitude. It’s no spoiler to say that about 2 years ago Stacy and 20 other women or so were kidnapped from Earth and dropped on an Ice Planet, frightened, alone and freezing. Stacy met her resonance barbarian mate, Pashov, immediately and has a child with him. She’s lived a sheltered life while on her new Ice Planet home, and then her mate suffers amnesia after almost dying. With that background, I didn’t feel Stacy was a complainer at all. In fact, I found her attitude was normal in the circumstances and that she was resilient. If she complained and whined (I don’t feel she did), I would not have blamed her. This is a story of a couple learning to cope with amnesia, and learning to live a life together after literally losing everything (except each other, their baby and community of people). While this was not my favourite, I still thought it was a solid entry into the series. I’m glad I read it, and I should not have hesitated. I loved visiting the Ice Planet and its people. It was like visiting good friends. Audible narrators Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd do a wonderful job bringing the characters to life. This series has been a welcome and unexpected boost to my romance listening enjoyment. Not a dull moment. I recommend this series.

Awwwwwww Another Amazing story

I have been listening to all the books and cant stop listening. They are all great stories and this one was wonderful as well. I saw a few reviews about how Stacey was boo hooing too much, but they got through it. I would be pretty messed up too if my mate was hurt and lost all memory of me too. I love the series and everyones experiences. Cant wait for more and I will be sad when it ends. :-)

OMG!

I usually love Ruby Dixon’s stories but Stacy drove me crazy. While I have never been in this type of situation I’m sure I would have handled it much better and with less whining. It was not Pashov’s fault he was hurt in the earthquake but Stacy blames him. This is the only book where I actually yelled at Stacy while listening because she was so stupid!!!

Stacey, Stacey, Whiny Stacey!

This was my least favorite of the books so far. Geez! Stacey whined wayyyyyy too much! I get it, she was sheltered or caved but she didn't have one survival instinct bone in her body or an ounce of understanding. As soon as I thought she would redeem herself by understanding the difficulties her Mate Pashov was having, she'd forget that dawn of realization in favor of whining! It was infuriating and I only finished the book because I wanted to hear more about the move to the Vil-uge LOL! Otherwise this entry in the series is totally forgettable. The only thing good to come from it was the move to a safer location and the finding of eggs LOL.

Dixon is a genius

She continues to surprise me with her fresh stories within the same group of people. I don’t know how she can keep coming up with good story ideas. This one pulled at my heartstrings. It was heartbreaking and heart warming all in one book. Pashov learning his mate all over again and Stacy getting a second chance to experience his firsts again made this a really great read. I loved it. I’m not a fan of Hollie Jackson. In fact I actively avoid her. But this book wasn’t so bad. I don’t know if she has changed her style or if her vocals reflected the characters she was trying to portray or what, but she didn’t sound as whiney as she usually does.

Blue Love

To love a blue man/alien is not easy but when you do it’s strong feelings. So, when that blue man can’t remember you because of a accident do you give up or love him anyway. Grief, what to do. This journey of exploration is more than to find a new home it’s to find who they truly are. You can’t help but fall in love again for them.
