Barbarian’s Prize (Ice Planet Barbarians #5) by Ruby Dixon

28096224._SY475_SYNOPSIS

It’s hard being the most popular girl on the ice planet. The alien men are falling all over themselves to impress me in the hopes that I’ll take them to my furs. But they don’t know my secrets – none of them do. And they don’t realize that behind my smile, I just wish they’d go away.
I don’t want any of them. I want someone else – someone with a gorgeous blue body, big horns, and the most intense gaze ever. He’s the only one that knows the truth. Maybe with him, I can work through my fears of the past…. but I’m pretty sure he wants more than just friendship. He wants forever, and I’m not sure I can give it.

MY REVIEW

3 Ho! Stars!

This was my least favorite book thus far. There was a little too much OM drama.

“You must accept that there will be things in life that are not good, but they are outweighed by the good things. If there were no bad, we would not appreciate the wonders that life has to offer. There will be fear, but you must not let it win.”

The book begins when Tiffany has a nightmare of her time on the ship with the aliens that kidnapped her and the other women. She had been assaulted by them, and that has left her traumatized.
Tiffany and Josie are the two human females that have not yet resonated with anyone, and this makes Tiffany very popular among the males. But all the attention is unwanted, and all Tiffany wants is to be left alone.

“Ho, Tee-fah-nee. It is I, Salukh.”

Salukh is one of the men who want Tiffany. But for him, it’s different because even though his khui is quiet, he knows Tiffany is his mate. Salukh also knows that he has to be patient with Tiffany because of her trauma. Hence, their relationship starts out as friends and progresses from there.
Overall, it was a sweet story. Still, I didn’t find their book as exciting as the others, and I kind of just wanted to finish it to then be able to move onto Josie and Haeden’s story.
