Dangerously Mine
Loving Dangerously, Book #1
After aliens invade and conquer Earth, Eva is transported to a distant slave trading planet. Escape and freedom are her only priority, but none of her martial arts training prepared her for what she faces. She finds herself enslaved to the warrior King Taio. Eva’s drawn  to this sexy alien male who ignites her heart and body.
Taio is disgusted with the idea of  owning a slave—until now. From the moment he sees her, he knows Eva is his for  the taking. Torn between lust and duty, Taio knows nothing will stop him from  protecting his little warrior.


Dangerously Yours
Loving Dangerously, Book #2
Kane Epps divides his life into two distinct parts—before the alien invasion and after. Before the invasion, he had a pregnant wife and a high-powered job. After the invasion, he’s left with only himself and his hatred for all things alien. He channels his bitterness by captaining a vessel of renegade humans—space pirates who don’t think twice about taking what they need.
Princess Sa’Mya is on the run. She and a few trusted advisers fled her home planet, only to be captured by the sexy, dangerous Captain Epps. He claims to hate aliens but can’t seem to resist touching her or kissing her…everywhere. As Kane introduces Sa’Mya to ever-increasing, unimaginable realms of pleasure, the princess becomes determined to earn his trust. She’s used to getting what she wants. And this time, what she wants is Kane Epps.


Dangerously Hers
Loving Dangerously, Book #3
Jess hates aliens. After the invasion that destroyed Earth, the extraterrestrial bastards sold her to a brothel as a sex slave. She may have escaped but the old memories and fears still linger in the dark corners of her mind. SupposedlySonis is just the place for her—somewhere safe, where she can heal and start fresh. She’s almost hopeful…until she meets Rasha, her new boss.
Rasha, Captain of the Sonis Royal Guard, is a warrior through and through. He’s huge, sinfully sexy and could have any woman on Sonis—but the woman he wants is Jess. He’s very much an alien and Jess knows she should hate him or at least be wary, but whenever he’s around, she loses control. She tells herself it’s only sex—amazing, mind-blowing sex like nothing else she’s ever experienced—but there’s something about Rasha that shakes her soul. The feel of his skin against hers, the look in his eyes as he touches her—they make her want to believe it’s possible to find love and begin  again.



Dangerously His
Loving Dangerously, Book #4
Justin “JB” Blake has never met a woman he couldn’t bed—or one he wants to keep. That changes the second he lays eyes on Princess Saia Xochis. The beautiful alien makes his body burn and his heart ache. She will be his. All JB has to do is risk life and limb at the hands of her abusive father, her protective brother, and her warmongering intended mate.
The possibilities of death and dismemberment have never stopped him before.



In this SCORCHING story of insta-love between two people from different social statuses the action is at times fast-paced and heartbreaking as their road to HEA is a rocky one.  With its nice blend of sexiness and playfulness this book grabs you from the very start and has you rooting for unrequited lovers Saia and JB to find happiness and help her escape from a lifetime of pain and abuse at the hands of her father and an uncertain future that has her being bartered as a political pawn.

After years of being a slave at the hands of aliens and seeing his friends slowly die JB now lives his life to the fullest, not taking things too seriously and enjoying one female after another.  He's a restless spirit who doesn't see himself settling down anytime soon until he sees Saia.  She's the one woman he can see himself with forever but their future's unclear as she's promised to another.  Clandestine meetings have them getting closer together and ultimately have him fighting to keep her by his side using all his pirating skills.  JB is a horndog at the start of the story without a care for consequences but Saia, and her situation, change him and turn him into a truly heroic man.  He never loses his charming and sensual nature though.  He brings excitement to Saia's life and gives her the love she's always dreamt of and I was on the edge of my seat willing their HEA to come to fruition.  JB grabbed my attention from page one as his loneliness was obvious behind his happy-go-lucky facade and I'm still dreaming of this unrepentant and slightly tarnished hero with the playful personality!

As a princess Saia's life should've been perfect but it was more of a nightmare.  The constant physical and emotional abuse inflicted on her by her father left her cowering in his presence and forced into a future she doesn't want.  After a particularly vicious encounter she visits her brother and upon seeing JB her life is forever changed.  Saia always longed for someone to love her just for herself, she wanted excitement and to visit exotic lands.  JB represents all those things and she can't help but be drawn to him even as her impending wedding gets closer.  Their secretive meetings help her regain the confidence her father beat out of her, she soon saw herself as worthy of love and her self-esteem flourished beneath his talented hands.  Saia was a sweet young woman who put on a brave face despite constant pain as she was raised to do.  JB was an escape from all that, he took away all the seriousness and brought carefree days and nights to her doorstep and I loved seeing them together.

This was a fast-paced story with a few surprising twists along the way.  The characters were likable and easy to relate to.  The scenes of abuse were vividly depicted and heartbreaking and left me wishing for Saia to find what she so richly deserved.  The interactions between Saia and JB were sweet in their early encounters and crackling and intensely HOT as he led her into unknown sexual territory.  The scenes also contained a sense of wonderment and playfulness to enhance their connection further.  Characters from previous books play a large part in the overall story as well but it's not necessary to have read the other installments to enjoy this book.  Ms. Griffin has crafted a series with an alien world and its customs vividly depicted that fully immerses you in the story and her characters keep you engaged in the immensely satisfying outcome.  This series is a wonderful addition to the sci-fi genre and I especially recommend it to those who like their stories on the scorching side.

My rating for this is an A-
