The brothers accept, and Lila cleans up their freaking mess, relieved to have somewhere safe to live. Meanwhile, Zayzon keeps insisting that she continue to sleep on his bunk.

Because it’s getting harder and harder to deny her attraction for his possessive gaze, razor-sharp claws and his large… um, personality?But Lila can’t fall for anyone, even a scary male who turns out to be cuddly. Not when demons from her past are about to return for their down payment.Can a human save an alien miner’s life, without breaking his heart?Author's Note: The prequel to the Fever Brothers series is Live!

    OkThis is a pretty good story but it gives you total Snow White and the seven dwarfs vibes. But it was still good. I liked the chemistry between Lila and Zayzon. They are so cute together. However, the ending seemed rushed and crushed together. Overall I give this a 3.2I received a free copy of this book via BooksproutI received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    I loved book one, which I stumbled onto via KU, and when I saw this one listed on Booksprout I had to grab it as fast as possible! Claws and Lila are magic. The biggest and most adamant about not finding any mate, much less a human, I expected him to push away and struggle to accept what the u inverse was trying to tell him. But the way Claws accepted Lila, and her strength in demanding time for what are very valid reasons, gives us time to see the relationship blossom and true love grow.

We also get a much deeper peek into who the other Fever crew includes, and I am definitely excited to watch these lovable dudes match up with their destinies. Well written and solid plot, this is a great addition to Ms. Mill’s bookshelf. For safety readers- this book is SUPER safe. As safe as it’s possible to get. Dual virgins, my friends, but these two definitely know how to get down. I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Lila is on the run and she has no ideal what she gets when she escapes and enter Zayzon’s room. The connection between both characters is explosive hot.

    The writing and editing of this sci-fi romance was clean in the ARC version of the manuscript, with no typos that I found and sparkling sentences.

The development of the romantic relationship is natural and organic, with the sexy times happening in the last 90% of the novel. The plot and pacing was exciting and quick. I was turning the pages rapidly to find out what was going to happen next. There was little angst and very high stakes in this story, which tends to be one of my preferred narrative structures for a romance novel. This novel used the Fated Mates trope, the Forced Proximity trope, the Partner in Trouble trope, and the Only One Bed trope. One of the fun things about this author is how she really layers the romance novel tropes. The world building, plot, and pacing were all four stars. The characterization and development of the romantic relationship were also four stars. The combined rating of this novel was therefore four stars. This story ends on a Happy Ever After ending instead of a cliffhanger, so that is a big plus. I recommend this romance to fans of alien sci-fi romance which uses layered romance novel tropes. I look forward to reading the next book in this series when it releases. I will be buying myself a keeper copy of this novel.I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

She is the heir to her family's business ventures, but she certainly isn't ready to join society. She's happy with her little world with her house staff and her cats. Lila would happily leave the family business to the other members of her family. And all would be well if an "ethical" assassin didn't warn her that someone wanted her dead and then escaped her of the planet to a "safer" place. Now she is lost, in the open, under the outdoors, in a strange land, without protection. Big Bad Claws is a touch of the Seven Dwarves, a little Goldilocks, and some Cinderella. More than all of that, this story is sweet and sexy. I love the thought and planning that Michele Mills put into the lore and mythology of her storytelling, and the worldbuilding is fantastic. Margol Illibrium Xylan like Zayzon are sought after as mates on Minecorp's Timbur location, and Claws is one of the most asked for, sadly for most, he brutally turns them down. Now the entire colony is enjoying watching the human turning him down. It's the height of entertainment. If only it didn't put a target, Lila didn't want on her back.You will thoroughly adore Lila and Zayzon's love story.

    This book was as fun as its name and was both an insta-love and a (slightly) slow burn...which I never thought I’d like together. The world building brings us into Zayzon’s life with his brothers, and poor Lila who finds herself right where she should be when fleeing for her life—curled up nekked in Zayzon’s bed!

I loved the rightness of how they each felt about one another immediately. I’d read Mean Right Hook prior and this was a great follow up. Zayzon knows from her scent that she’s his, and she only fights herself as she tries to keep the danger in her world away from him and his brothers. Xylan males are fierce and we get a small peek at the other brothers, and hints at what may have happened to lead to family exile and the retirement of their brother’s name. Why are they stoically accepting their lot?! We just don’t know...but Zayzon and Lila keep us too busy to care (yet). Even though Xylan males are celibate prior to their mates, we learn that they can talk dirty and enjoy their mates with the best of the alphas. This was a tender and hawt ride (pun intended)...my only wish was that we got to see more of them together in their HEA, but I’m happy to find out how they’re doing when we get to see the sexy brothers get their own mates (I hope!).I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

Already a bit familiar with the world thanks to Mean Right Hook, I was immediately there with Lila as she experienced a whole lot of everything for the first time in a long time, and her circumstances, well, they totally make it understandable why she might be just a bit overwhelmed! But I fell for her snark, her character, her charm straight away, knowing I'd be rooting for her throughout. And then there's Zayzon! Tall, gruff, loud, and with big claws, and that's not a euphemism, he's definitely experiencing things he'd never thought he would, and even while struggling to deal with all that, he is drawn to his mate. And nothing is going to get in his way.The way Lila faces her fears, being so brave, it's inspiring! And her trying to do the right thing, the honorable thing, and Zayzon trying to do the same, it's a comedy of errors and sweet moments and laughter and every page just made it better!P. S. Just wait until you meet Max. Max is adorable. I want a Max.P. P. S. This dirty talk will have you in equal parts snorting with laughter and squirming in your seat! What better combination is there than that?Basically, what are you waiting for? The Fever Brothers are waiting for you!

Lila is being hunted but she is saved by an assassin that her father helped and send to a random planet, she ends up in Minecorp Timbur where she sneaks around until she finds what looks like an abandoned " unlocked" dwelling where she seeks shelter. In true snow white fashion she ends up with 7 huge alien miner brothers (no 8 was exiled), where she inadvertently ends up in Zayzon (Claws) bed and he recognizes her as his mate and wants to mate and protect her. To protect the brothers she refuses to mate them and hides in the house where she cleans for them. There are some really fun, funny scenes and a viral video.The chemistry between Zayzon and Lila was intense and sizzling and while he is huge and scary he is so sweet, lovable and protective with Lila and respected her wish not to mate for 1 month (moon cycle). Lila is a survivor, she is smart, strong and honorable and tries not to put the brothers in harms way. She knows she is attracted to Zayzon but she also knows she can't risk giving into her feelings.The story line was an adaptation of snow white and the characters were well developed and you could not help but love them and relate to them.I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

It kind of felt like the author did too because it wrapped up super quickly at the end. That felt kind of rushed. I get it was just a plot device to get her there, but still. OH ANOTHER MINOR SPOILER, the H’s sister in law! I don’t think I’ve read the previous books (or I forgot about her character) because when she came to visit the vibe was so heavy that she was just pretending to be the sister in law and was going to kidnap or kill the h or something. I just kept getting the feeling that the stepmother had hired her to come get the h. I don’t know if I’m just a suspicious person or it was the way that scene was written but I was worried the whole time lol. All in all I enjoyed it and don’t feel like I wasted my time. I would read the next one. Interested to see what happens with the other brothers and their stories.

A dilapidated compound on the edge of town provides the perfect refuge, but it's not nearly as uninhabited as Lila assumed. When Claw finds the human female in his bed, it's apparent to him that he needs to do everything in his power to keep her there.Quite a bit happened in the story, and yet I felt like the plot sort of plodded along until the very end, when it sudden sped up to 100 mph. That breakneck pace didn't last long, though. Everything wrapped up really quickly and smoothly. Lila was sweet and justifiably fearful, but survival was a pretty good motivator for getting her past her issues. I just wish she hadn't been so prone to rookie mistakes. Claw talked a big game and he definitely delivered. Considering he lives with six brothers, I'll be curious to see how the dynamic between them changes as their household continues to expand.I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Zayzon was tired of not finding his mate so he took himself off the mate registry, Lila was afraid of everything so she never left home. Circumstances force her into leaving home and she ends up in Zayzon’s bed, he can smell right away that she’s his mate. She is drawn to him, but she’s more concerned with what’s going on back home.

Everything works out- but I so wanted to shake her and point out that Zayzon could easily take care of her problem, if she would only confide in him. That all being said- the writing was great, the story was engaging, I enjoyed reading about his HEA, I love all the brothers and cannot wait for the next book.

Lila is strong enough and the danger real enough for the story to flow. Zayzon knows she's his and even though he's big and bad to everyone else, he's putty in her hands. They were both great. We still have other brothers. I'm ready!

One particularly fun spot is when the reader gets to discover why Zayzon has the nickname Claws.This is a quick read that I think fans of S.E. Smith and Zoe Chant will enjoy. Have fun.

    I continue to love the premise of the Xylan - a race with no mating instinct until their perfect match touches them. The intricacies of the culture remain a favourite idea and I enjoy that the author is still working in this world. These two characters are such fun. I enjoyed their personalities and the way they meshed. I liked that the male lead was willing to accept ridicule for a previous opinion from others and that he didn’t let others’ perspectives influence or upset his choices.

    I love this series, just as I love stories about the Xylans. The author's world building is excellent, she has created a social and biologic imperative that has them virgins till they meet their fated mate. It's so rich and well rounded that you just see how their whole society and caste system works. Add in Lila and the danger that she's fleeing from and you've got a great story. The chemistry between Zayzon and Lila is awesome. Zayzon and his brothers are big hulking hunks, but not brutes and I love this series, just as I love stories about the Xylans.

It's so rich and well rounded that you just see how their whole society and caste system works. Add in Lila and the danger that she's fleeing from and you've got a great story. The chemistry between Zayzon and Lila is awesome. Zayzon and his brothers are big hulking hunks, but not brutes and add to the overall story by welcoming Lila and promising to protect her even though she won't tell them what she's running from. Action adventure and a HEA, loved that it was longer than the last one. Keep 'em coming!I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    Thrilling adventure mixed with hot romance yes please. This story reminded me of snow white and the 7 dwarfs. But the fever brothers are no dwarfs, na- na i say. But, Lila is thrown into another planet to save her life. She just so happens to come into a building looking run down. She just doesn't know it's belonging to Claw's and his brothers. We met Saxon from the first book of the series.

    Sweet and sexy, just what I needed right now. Zayzon was very vocal after family members mated with humans. He didn't want a human mate and he was tired of having his hopes dashed looking for a mate the traditional way. When he and his brothers come home one night after a very long shift, he is overcome by the most wonderful smell. He knows its his mate and he is thrilled that she sought him out.

Lila has trouble on her tail and transported onto Timbur to wait it out. Looking for shelter from the the rainstorm, she finds an abandoned home. She follows her nose to a chamber with a most delicious smell. Once they meet, I was overcome by warm fuzzies. These two are seriously adorable, I am loving this series. I can't wait to see the other Fever brothers fall in love!

    The Fever Brothers are really sexy and their they are protective of Claws. These brothers were really fun and cute. Lila has actually chosen the loudest, biggest and sharped clawed of the messy Xylan brothers. They are rough miners and still very gentle and kind to Lila. Zayzon proved to be the most daring, fierce and is constantly sniffing Lila's hair. She promises that if they let her stay she'll clean their messy place. She is becoming much to enamored with Zayzon and she can't deny her attra The Fever Brothers are really sexy and their they are protective of Claws. These brothers were really fun and cute.

    A cute and exciting love storyI loved Lila, but Zayzon was also likeable. Lila starts off timid and milky but has to learn how to save herself. It was easy to read, a lot of stuff going on,. Some of the writing was repetitious and I'll admit that I skimmed over some overly worded inner dialogue parts. They weren't that many, but enough to have to mention here. There was danger and action right from the start, and I really hope that the assassin ends up with a Fever brother too.

By the time Lila and Zayzon touched palms, the sexual tension was very high and it was timed perfectly !

    Zayzon just might be my favorite from this author. He will definitely be hard to forget. When he finds his mate in his bed, he is determined to win her heart. Lila feels safe and protected with Zayzon, but she is more concerned with keeping him and his brothers safe. These Xylans have proved their loyalty throughout the series. For both family and their mates. Zayzon will wait for Lila, as long as it takes. A sweet adventure with a touch of romance. Great addition to the series.

    This was a really entertaining read that had me smiling and shaking my head, in turns. I love the Xylan way of confirming your mate through a palm on palm touch. Our gal, Lila, had some serious issues to deal with and for a 'shut-in', they were huge. Of course, she was tougher than she knew and worked so hard to deal with her anxieties. Thankfully, Claw's was more than happy to support her and he was beyond patient in waiting for their mating testing.

    The more I read about the Fever Brothers, the more I want. I adored reading about Zayzon and Lila and gobbled it right up. With the strength of the the brothers in this story, was like a cherry on the top. The stretch of the characters, (how each brother and bride are unique,) the chemistry of Claw and Lila’s connection, in a well written and plotted story with a detailed and fascinating new world, make this book a high recommend for me. And I’ll definitely be looking for more in this series. Gr The more I read about the Fever Brothers, the more I want. I adored reading about Zayzon and Lila and gobbled it right up.
