One day Adina was sending other women to Lukrim to be brides and suddenly she finds her and her husband on the way there.
Claimed by the Alien: Alien Menage Romance
Adina remained on Earth to stay with her husband, even though she was the perfect candidate for the alien bridal program on Lukrim. She has a good job, a husband who loves her, and a hobby watching old movies where the sky was still blue. She’s worked her way up to be the director at the very program she denied herself from, but now her alien boss on Lukrim wants more from her.
When he offers her a deal she can’t refuse, she leaps at the chance to get herself and her husband off Earth. Her husband Mike is suspicious of the alien’s motives; how could he not be? Tahum is tall, blue, and hot as hell, and he can give Adina the one thing her husband can’t: a baby.
Tahum can give his coworker and her husband everything they want and need if they’ll only give him a chance, but can Mike trust this alien with his wife and not lose her in the process?5
I read a lot of Alien menage romances and erotica and I have to say that I appreciate Nessa Claugh’s take on this genre in Claimed by the Alien. The trope is a common one that we will all recognize. The difference in Claimed is that Adina and Mike are happily married and very sexually active as Claugh writes (thank you very much).
The introduction of a third has never occurred to Mike as he is not bisexual and neither is Adina. I will admit to kind of hoping as there is another character introduced who I love who I would have enjoyed seeing in the mix. Back to Mike and Adina, they have a healthy marriage. This is when Claugh goes left and I really enjoyed the twist and the logic of it (in my mind anyway (laugh)).
Claugh gives us plenty of ether (like my use of space words here? lol). Mike brings up good points in the story, so I will not echo them other than to say I agree and it does seem kind of one-way.
I really like the story and the ether. If you want to be Claimed by the Alien then try Tahum he can go deep space. (hehehehehe…you have to read the story!)
I received an ARC of this book and I am writing a review without prejudice and voluntarily.
