Genetically created to be broodmares, Phyrne Galaxy and her mother, aunt and cousin don't need men, they need freedom. They escaped from the warring planet of Kergeron to Earth, where Phyrne’s aunt's vision of winning money in a New Jersey casino comes true. Too bad her aunt's precog didn't show the hoods waiting outside with guns. But Phyrne has her own weapon, more powerful than bullets. She's ovulating.
Phyrne turns up the heat, taking out more than the crooks in her wave of sexual torture. FBI Special Agent Hawk Higgens, running to protect the women, is brought to his knees, too. Caught in her procreative spell, Phyrne ravishes Hawk.
Being seduced by an alien and left half naked and unconscious in the back of a surveillance van changes Hawk's life. He joins the Foundation, a privately funded agency that hunts aliens. Six years later, the reason for his career change pops back on the radar in a tea shop in Kentucky. The woman whose face still haunts his dreams has an addition to her family – a five-year-four-month-old daughter.
At the same time, two Kergeron warriors are sent to Earth to bring the women back to their home planet. With an ex-FBI agent and two alien warriors on her trail, Phyrne's calm life running the Tea & Comfort shop is about to get shaken, stirred and screwed.
Well now, this book was a fun surprise. I enjoy books with aliens and other worlds, but I don’t think that I personally have read very many that involved romance and sex. Not that I’m complaining. Aliens need love too! When I first looked at the table of contents and saw there were sixty-three chapters, I inwardly groaned a little, but turned out they were really short and quick. The story is told from different perspectives that all lead up to a certain point, and I really like that style.
The Galaxy girls are Phyrne, who can see auras – Liss, her mom who is an empath – Deena, cousin who can read minds – and Ki, aunt who is psychic. Besides all having some type of ability, they are all smokin’ hot ….. well, more than hot, they look like goddesses. They escaped from the planet Kergeron because the women there are treated like broodmares. They, themselves, are breed to be fertile and produce good offspring. When they ovulate, they let of strong pheromones that would make any man crazy with lust, and that can be a very powerful weapon. But all the women wanted were normal lives without controlling men using them for breeding. Everything they knew about Earth before landing is what they learned from watching television, which could be pretty funny!
I liked the Galaxy women, especially how they were fiercely protective of one another. I thought Phyrne and Hawk’s relationship was interesting… in a good but different way. I’d love to get into the whole psychological and biological aspects of it, but I think it would turn this into a 10 page review. I also enjoyed the relationships that formed between the other characters.
I love when there is humor in a story, and there were a lot of funny comments and observations in this book. Most of it had something to do with the two male aliens who were sent to Earth to retrieve the four women. I may start calling people pren-heads from now on.
Overall, I was very pleased with Galaxy Girls. The author sent this book to me for review and I’m glad that I can honestly say that I enjoyed it. It was my first Edie Ramer book, but I’ve already download another one by her.
