Read: Enhanced (Brides of the Kindred 12)

04 January, 2015

I did something this weekend that I haven't done since July, I read a book.

Shocking, I know.

It's not that I didn't try to read a book or two. It's just that I'd start reading one or two but they just wouldn't hold my attention long enough to finish them. I even tried telling myself I couldn't buy a new one to read until I actually finished reading one, but even that didn't work and those newly purchased books would sit unread along with all the others on the bookshelf or in my Kindle.

Enhanced: Brides of the Kindred 12 by Evangeline Anderson
From Goodreads: Mei-Li Hastings is in trouble. She’s Dream Sharing with a Kindred warrior. Normally that’s a regular part of being claimed by one of the tall, handsome aliens who came to Earth looking for brides. But in Mei-Li’s case, nothing is normal. The dreams she’s having show a huge, frightening male with a red laser for an eye and a metal arm. The man who’s coming to claim her is a Dark Kindred—one of the emotionless denizens of Zeaga Four where love is unknown and feelings are outlawed.

Six has risen steadily in the ranks of the Collective since his inclusion into the Dark Kindred at age fourteen. Now, to his dismay, he is suddenly having dreams he cannot ignore—dreams of a girl with dark eyes and silky black hair who fears him desperately. Despite the fact that he is supposed to feel nothing, Six finds himself drawn to the girl. And when he is ordered by his superior to claim her, he comes in search of his future bride.

Now they are locked in a struggle of light versus dark...cold versus warmth. For when Mei-Li is near him, Six’s frozen heart begins to thaw. Though the Dark Kindred warrior is determined not to commit “Feel-crime” he cannot contain the emotions growing within him for the petite girl he snatched from Earth. But with the newfound feelings of love and desire, come some much darker feelings. In order to love Mei-Li, Six will have to face the darkness within and a tragic past he has locked away for years.

Will he survive the memories that surface…or will they drive him mad? 

I first discovered this series a few years back when I was stuck on the couch after foot/ankle surgery. I needed a fast read that held my attention long enough to numb out the boredom of not being able to do anything.

Enter the Kindred series because honestly, who doesn't want to read about a group of big hunky aliens that have come to earth to save the hearts of women and the planet they inhabit?

Ok....that might be a wee bit of an over generalization but it's mostly true.

Reading the series in quick secession will sadly bore you to tears. The stories are all kind of the same, just different characters and circumstances. But the break between reading book 11 (Devoured) and this one reminded me why I love this ridiculous series.

Yes, there is a lot of steamy sex. A few "Duh! We knew that was going to happen!" moments. But when it comes down to it, Enhanced was a sweet love story between Mei-Li and Six, withe a little action adventure thrown in for good measure.
