The Hunter. Adiya Yamma had one goal: Find a male and mate him. As the unexpected heir to her mother’s legacy, she would do anything to thwart her sister’s plan to usurp the role and overthrow her leadership.
The plan was simple. Enter the illegal hunting game, claim one of the frail humans as her mate and secure her rule. What she didn’t intend, was to find a man who satisfied her needs and wants beyond her every desire.
The Prey. One night Ben Browder was in the Afghanistan mountains and the next he was on an alien planet with eight other abductees trapped in a survival game. As a Marine, Ben didn’t expect to have any problem completing all three levels of The Hunt and earning his ticket back to Earth.
Then an injury sidelines him and Ben has no choice but to make a bargain with an alien huntress determined to claim him as her own. Agreeing, Ben knows there’s more than one way to win and he’s about to prove he’s more than a muscled enforcer.
I was so excited to finally see one of the men get hunted in this series. I really liked Ben in the previous books. These books take place all about the same timeline, just following different characters. Several humans have been abducted from earth and brought to a planet where they will be hunted. They will become the property of whoever can catch them. So far, we’ve only seen the women get taken (and I loved each story, which all have a HEA). This time, we get to see where Ben ends up.
Adiya Yamma is a General on her planet. She’s a ruler of a territory and was chosen as heir over her older sister, which was a surprise to many, especially the sister. Now her rule is being challenged and other generals are trying to force into a marriage with one of their family members to control her. She wants to find someone who won’t try to undermine her rule. This is why she enters The Hunt.
I really like watching these two come together. It takes a bit of time. And Ben gives her a run for her money as she tries to catch him. I even love how hard he works to care for the others with him. After Ben gets injured, he convinces Adiyanot to not to claim him until after all his friends have moved on to level two.
I’ve really loved all the books in this series. You could read these out of order or as standalones, if you so choose, though I personally prefer to read in order. It is a fun science fiction romance with great characters that I just love. And even though these couples come together in dire circumstances, they do fall in love with each other and have an happy ever after.

Ha when I first saw this title and cover I was sure it was a Sophia Rose review knowing how much she loves her sci-fi. LOL 😉
Great review Melanie, although I kind of have a hard time with the abductor to love story I guess I’d have to give one a try. Thanks for sharing.
Haha, you know me well and this is exactly a book I would love, but tricked you, Debbie, Melanie got to this one first. 🙂
Yeah, Sophia and do like many of the same style of books. We often overlap.
Great review Melanie! Most of the Alien abduction books I’ve read also have the human partner as the female and it’s exciting to see that this human is a man! Sounds like an awesome series I need to check out! Thanks for sharing your review!
Same here, this is the first alien/human story where the human was male. I hope there will be more.
Nice… it’s about time a woman gets to be the hunter. Sounds like a fun series.
I’ve had a great time with this series. The previous book was a mother with an young boy and infant. They were hunted (which she reminded people that a mother will do anything to protect her children).
You always manage to pick things I would enjoy but that I didn’t know about before you shared them.
Thanks so much. I love finding new stuff. I can’t remember how I found this author.
I’ve been meaning to try her sci-fi after reading a different one. I think this series would tickle my fancy. Thanks, Melanie!
I need to try some of her other stories. I’ve only read this series, so far.
It’s great that it continues to be good!
It has been a really fun series. I need to try more from this author.
I love your enthusiastic review! I’m so glad you enjoyed this book and are enjoying the series!
Thank you so much. I had a great time with this series. I need to try more from this author.
That sounds like such a fun book. I might have to add this one to my wish list.
I do think you would enjoy this series.
