Summary

As a newcomer to the alien tribe, I've struggled to find my place. It might be because I'm a tad headstrong at times. And yes, I might have thrown a few things at people's heads. But I had a good reason to pitch a fit - my shy sister was stolen away right under my nose. Of course, now she's back and mated. Everyone's happy...except me.  

I need...affection. Attention. Okay, I'm lonely. Really lonely.  

Strangely enough, the only person that I think understands what I'm going through is the same blue-skinned brute that stole my sister. It's wrong to hook up with him, even as a mindless fling.  

Except...I'm not so good with the whole "rules" thing. And he's not so great with the "fling" thing.

Contains mature themes.

Maddie & Hassan.

As much as Maddie was a bit dislikable in the last story, I liked her is this book, very sassy and full of spunk. I also liked Hassan, he only wanted to be loved. It will be interesting to see where this story ends with the craziness at the end of the book. Don’t give up if you were not a fan of Maddie in the last book, series is still great and so was this book. What this series has in abundance is the sexiness factor. Oh boy. Narrators are both good and I look forward to more from the series.

Another great Ice Planet story!

In this entertaining audiobook, we have Maddie who is the sister of Lilah from the previous book. She’s not fitting in too well and is frustrated because she feels bored and useless now that her sister has a mate. She decides to learn to hunt and asks Hassan (the alien who had kidnapped Lilah) to teach her. Before too long they give into their physical attraction, but Hassan wants more than Maddie is ready to give. When disaster strikes, Hassan and Maddie set out to find a new home for everyone. Will they ever resonate and will they find somewhere to move the tribe? Narration was well done!

Great character development.

This is book 8 in the ICE PLANET BARBARIAN SERIES and while each story stands alone, I recommend they be read in order.

This is Maddie and Hassan’s story and in the beginning of the book, I did not like their characters much. When characters are unimpressive at first because of the behaviours they exhibit, with the right author, the potential for growth and development is great. And that happened here. These characters became admirable. They are still not my favourite characters in the series, but I did enjoy their romance as they were well matched and strong together.

While the whole series has been sexy, most stories so far have been lovely, sweet, slow-burns to love and sex. I’d say BARBARIAN TAMING was an exception with hot, erotic beginnings. Wowza.

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. It just keeps getting better. Not a dull moment.

I recommend this series.

Sassy and hilarious!

This is the love story between Hassen and Maddie.

Hassen stole her sister and now she is attracted to him. and that makes her more angry. Everyone is afraid of her because of how mean she was when her sister was gone.

She feels like an outcast and can relate to him on that level. They become friends with benefits and hunting lessons while everyone is gone for a khui for Maylaks baby and for the fruit cave.

Shortly afterwards, there's the cave-in. And Maddie and Hassen go for supplies. And..... they found an abandoned city in kind of a canyon.

They literally save the day, but only if he's accepted back into the tribe.

Hassen doesn't realize how bad he was until Lilah forgives him after they resonated.

It was funny. I loved how Lilah thought he needed taming but Maddie loved him as is.

Unlikely heroine and the most likable bad guy

Fast paced. Funny. The heroine is not a virgin damsel in distress. A young woman who’s life just up ended. Maddy is more normal with a bit of defiance, bad manners and bad decisions. She pulls herself out of the hole she dug/digs.
The end just stopped. Left with too many ????
But overall a good story.

even outcasts can find love

Poor Maddie really feels like the outcast - the only unmated female, and she has made the tribe uncomfortable with her yelling and throwing things when her sister Lila was kidnapped.
Poor Hassen really is an outcast - he’s exiled for having kidnapped Lila; and boy, is he glad he isn’t stuck with the crying human
These two outcasts find they both feel the same way. Hassen agrees to teach Maddie to hunt so she can feel useful; and agrees to scratch that female itch. Only, he’s ready for the commitment of being a pleasure-mate. Maddie is not.
I just wish so much of her wasn’t so hung up on a negative, fat, body image throughout the story.
Wow! The cave!? Hooray, the toilets!
Jackson and Lloyd do a very good job of narration.
Recommend the book and series::)))

Shut up and take my money!

I had been eagerly anticipating this installment and the author did not disappoint! If I have one complaint, it would be to wish it were longer. The heroines in these stories are always well-rounded and most of the time a bit sassy, giving them a nice realistic outlook. And the barbarians are...barbarians. They are unapologetically honest. There is no such thing as a metaphor or figure of speech. This book, in particular, has a couple of flawed characters in the leading role and I LOVE that!
The narrators are nothing short of genius as well, really immersive experience, thanks for all the work that goes into them!
