    It says on the cover of this book that this author was a New Voice In Romance Contest Finalist Were there only two or three authors in the contest Seriously I can t remember how this book originally came to my attention, but most of the reviews are very complimentary Maybe they are all relatives and friends Honestly, I haven t read anything this bad inwell, I can t remember when And I ve read some stinkers, so that s saying something First, I thought this was supposed to be humorous No It says on the cover of this book that this author was a New Voice In Romance Contest Finalist Were there only two or three authors in the contest Seriously I can t remember how this book originally came to my attention, but most of the reviews are very complimentary Maybe they are all relatives and friends Honestly, I haven t read anything this bad inwell, I can t remember when And I ve read some stinkers, so that s saying something First, I thought this was supposed to be humorous Not so much Goofy Yes Funny No.Then there was the whole incestuous undertone to the entire story Evidently, when the male Djinn go into a rut rage yes, seriously , they can t control themselves Consequently, they will rape their sisters, daughters, mothersyou name it Ewwww GrossAlso, I hate to criticize the way any author chooses to spell things, but in this case, I can t help myself The heroine is named Djinni Jenny Get it A Djinn named Djinni Bwahahah snort Well, actually, it s not so cute after about 25 pages After having to mentally correct myself Jenni Not Duh Jenni a million times, the novelty wore thin.The plot I m being generous here is convoluted and all over the place The characters names all blend together, and the family tree is so inbred that you can t tell who s who half of the time Are they on another planet When did that happen Djanjo Djethro Djerrold Who the hell is that How did she end up spending 90% of the book in the bathroom Last, there was virtually no sex in this book The one time they did have relations it was nothing to write home about Did he just try to have sex with her in a mud bath Ack I don t care who you are, that s unsanitary His spooge sparkles How looovely.Trust me, give this one a pass

    He was Tarrant Arragon, the Tiger Prince and Terror of the Dodecahedrons He d made his choice, had selected his bride, and he d have her By guile or by force, if necessary, for he was not a man whose will was often thwarted She was Djinni vera White Knight and Chosen Bride She was also the only daughter of the Saurian Dragon and quite possibly the last fertile female Djinni She was also, very much an Earth child One who had been taught to despise Prince Tarrant Arragon.Being abducted was He was Tarrant Arragon, the Tiger Prince and Terror of the Dodecahedrons He d made his choice, had selected his bride, and he d have her By guile or by force, if necessary, for he was not a man whose will was often thwarted She was Djinni vera White Knight and Chosen Bride She was also the only daughter of the Saurian Dragon and quite possibly the last fertile female Djinni She was also, very much an Earth child One who had been taught to despise Prince Tarrant Arragon.Being abducted was bad Having been tricked into marriage was worse But when her sexually captivating and unexpectedly endearing husband turned out to be the tyrant Tarrant Arragon, well could things get any worse FORCED MATE absolutely ROCKS It screams into motion and hurls ever forward, never letting up It s a thrill ride mix of political machinations, mistaken identity romantic comedy, and colliding cultures Witnessing Earth verses the Empire was hilarious Indeed, I laughed out loud onthan one occasion However, it should be noted that FORCED MATE is farthan its lovely comedic elements It is a fabulous political thriller whose turns, twists, and layers threw me for many a loop Once I read the first paragraph, I was happily hooked and burned through this book in one day FORCED MATE engages the mind, the intellect, and the heart It is not to be missed If the author decides to write a story with J J and Princess Martia Djulia, I ll be standing in line to purchase it.Five Mystique Moons Outstanding Class Two Sensuality Limited sexual content

    I m probably a bad audience for this book I don t read romance novels and I don t know diddly squat about chess I had a really hard time getting through the first half of this book I didn t like either Tarrant Arragon or Djinni However, Grievous was a terrific character I just couldn t fathom how a species that was so obsessed with sex could possible have become a star faring race About 1 2 way through though, the story picked up quite a bit I really liked the secondary characters, J.J I m probably a bad audience for this book I don t read romance novels and I don t know diddly squat about chess I had a really hard time getting through the first half of this book I didn t like either Tarrant Arragon or Djinni However, Grievous was a terrific character I just couldn t fathom how a species that was so obsessed with sex could possible have become a star faring race About 1 2 way through though, the story picked up quite a bit I really liked the secondary characters, J.J and Rhett Some intrigue developed and the main characters started interacting with the other characters There were some truly amusing lines in the book The second book involves J.J and it looks like a fun read

    This is a really weird book that s hard to understand What is rut rage What is a djinn 7 feet tall Get real This was also very confusing, as was the family tree I wouldn t recommend unless you re in for weird, alien istic, macho stuff Some parts were good But the rest was too hard to get into Maybe it s just me 1 5 stars.


  6. Nicole Nicole says:

    Bad, bad, bad, and can I add oneBAD to that Not only was this a waste of valuable time I could have used reading a better book but when I saw that the author had to 5 star herself I mean, really This book has no plot, the characters lacked, and I passed through mostly all of this Apparently, any joe shmoe can be an author these days Pathetic.
