Ridiculous and fun, just the book I needed right now.
Ridiculous and fun, just the book I needed right now.
Okay, so I was not expecting that. I knew there had to be a reason it was a popular TikTok book, but wow, this is just erotica thinly veiled as sci-fi.
The writing was pretty good, the sex scenes were expertly done, but there were a few moments that left me feeling like the characters/setting/premise weren‘t fully formed. However, I don‘t think the audience for this book is here for those things 😆
This is my #bookspin pick for March
Looking for some good alien abduction smut? I‘ve read the first 3 books in this series in 2.5 days 🙃 and I‘ve worked and taken care of my family. 🤣
This was really funny and enjoyable read, I liked this more than I thought I would. I am planning to continue with the series.

So, I heard a lot of discussions about this book. I love a good Spicy book and I‘m also super curious. Main Character with an Alien is in fact weird I realize that. On the same note so is storied where High School students date vampires that are 400 years old. Both come with moral issues if you catch my drift. Not the best not the worst but something that I don‘t regret reading. 🌶3/5🌶
Read this for a book club. New to the romance genre and haven‘t read any sci-fi romance so the sci-fi aspect intrigued me. Was not at all expecting to like this book as much as I did. The detailed rape scene in chapter 1 took me by surprise but other than that enjoyed the book. Will definitely be reading more in the series.
I couldn't resist getting Ice Planet Barbarians in its new traditional pubbed cover. It's out today.
Ok so curiosity got the best of me. I.. didn‘t hate it? Yes there is graphic alien um.. stuff. BUT I kind of liked the storyline lolol idk. I have no idea how to rate this and I don‘t think I could recommend this to anyone with a straight face👽
I will probably read more in the series tho because I‘m invested now 🤦🏻♀️
Discord is making me read it...
4.2⭐️ all right, fine… call it peer pressure, call it idle curiosity or just call it a need to be part of the cool kids club. Whatever you call it, the truth is I broke down and finally read this book, and it wasn‘t as bad as I thought it would be. It had a really good storyline, and there is definitely more to it than just sex. So yes, I‘m glad I read it and I enjoyed it.
Booktok got me too curious to pass it up when my library got a copy!
I listened to this on audio after seeing it all over tik tok and really enjoyed it, it will make you feel a certain type of way about horns but you‘ll enjoy it! 😂
After seeing this book incessantly on TikTok, I finally gave in 😂 I don‘t know what I expected, but this wasn‘t as bad as it could have been. Very much an 18+ read. Check the TW. I don‘t know if I‘ll read any others in the series (I think there are 22 total!?) but I‘m thinking these might serve as a quick break in between longer books.
BookTok made me do it.
I've read a lot of galleys recently that I haven't enjoyed and was starting to go into a reading slump, when I decided to give this book a listen after hearing about it on TikTok. It's super fun and what I needed to get out of my slump.
(though a serious trigger warning for rape in chapter 1)
Great, extremely drawn out spicy scenes, and hilarious writing. Not sure if it‘s supposed to be funny, but I ended up highlighting a ton of funny parts. Super simple/digestible writing, so it‘s definitely readable in one sitting.
Tiktok made me do it. I was curious. 😁
Started and ended the month in a steamy way! Gotta cool down! 🤪
Check out my November Wrap Up!
Bailing on this one because of the combo of alpha nonsense I don't like and being bored despite all the aliens.
My reading has taken me to some strange places this year but I've been enjoying them! Several young women abducted from earth by green aliens end up stranded on an icy planet which is home to some tall, blue, and handsome aliens. This is Georgie and Vectal's story. I liked how he was very protective of her and made sure she had all she, ahem, needed. 😉 Quite spicy.
⭐⭐⭐#Romanceopoly sun challenge "outerspace" set on an alien planet or spaceship
Totally different from anything I‘ve ever read. I saw someone else post about in here and it intrigued me. I‘m sooooo glad I checked it out.
I. Loved. This. Book. It‘s funny, there‘s sex, avatar-like aliens...what‘s not to love?! I want to read the whole series NOW.
🤣 I CANNOT 👏🏽 STOP 👏🏽 LAUGHING 👏🏽 at this book! Just, please read it and take it for the absolute romp it‘s supposed to be - it‘s not at all meant to be a crucial addition to the romance genre, it‘s the love child of its author who truly loves her characters which is plain in her writing. Seriously, I am eating this *ish up like a horny teen - it‘s hi-lar-i-ASS. The author notes a T-Warning for rape in book 1, but its not a theme!
Is this book ridiculous and weird? Yes.
Does it involve graphic sex with oddly humanoid aliens that strongly resemble the Avatar dudes? Yes.
Did I find it too weird to be remotely hot? Yes.
Did I enjoy the heck out of it anyway? Also yes.
*Ice Planet Honeymoon
Then I just had to read this extended epilogue to the first book! Great stuff - honestly I have a crush on a blue dude with horns and a tail? Ok 🤷🏻♀️🔥
I have seen this series all over Instagram I thought “what?!?!” But I‘m ready to try anything and I‘m so freaking glad I did! This book was A-Mazing! Absolutely insane and so good. I loved the characters and the steam factor was 🔥🔥. I‘m a believer and I‘ll definitely read more.
This book is a ridiculous silly fun read, though warning for sexual assault early in the book. Women from earth are stolen for a space slave trade and crash land on a harsh planet with total sweetheart aliens. Yes it is insane, I loved it. #romantsy
Wow, I did not expect this book to be so freaking good
I'm trying out a new podcast today. It's a podcast discussing the Ice Planet Barbarians books by Ruby Dixon. 😁
I couldn't find it in the podcast app I usually use - Pocket Casts, but was able to find it in Spotify.
Ruby Dixoin has really become an overnight favorite for me. I'll be binging this entire series before moving onto her other one.
OK. So I initially wasn't really digging this... but then somewhere around the middle I had a change of heart and I ended up liking it a lot. It's ridiculous and steamy and funny. If you're looking for some escapism, this is a good place to start.
(TW for sexual violence/rape in the beginning tho)

So I have this on *spoilers* because of my language. I'm not gonna lie, I have read a few of these books by Ruby Dixon and I'm not sure why. What am I looking for or thinking is going to change in these books? Just short smut filled books that have big blue aliens with big d**ks and tongues that have ridges on them. They all pair with human females. Even if the scenarios change the couple's do not, it is redundant. Just my opinion here.
This book is so ridiculous I‘m freaking out. Love it. 😂😘😂😍😂🌧☃️🍆☃️🍆☃️💦
This was pretty much everything I wanted it to be. I pictured the aliens as the blue- skinned result of a tiefling getting down and dirty with a Klingon from TNG, but with magical space peen (naturally). It appealed to my nerdy pervert (nerdvert?) side, and I've enjoyed calling my SO "my sweet resonance" and basking in his look of confusion.
Thanks to @EloisaJames for the recommendation!
I've read some pages of a coffee table book, thought about the serious books in my stack & decided I am at the point that I need something on the crazy sauce side to keep me going. The coffee I had earlier was a bad idea. Not because it kept me awake but because it gave me heartburn. On the other hand, heartburn is the reason I'm still awake. #readathon
A day late, but I had a mental block yesterday. Yes, this is on my Kindle TBR. I think it was free or $0.99 and actually came highly recommended. I just haven't quite been able to bring myself to start it.
If @EloisaJames @Jokila and @Chachic all recommend a #romantsy book, I figure I need to check it out! Jumping on the blue barbarian bandwagon 😉
Suspend disbelief and this is a lot of fun to read!
Edit: TW for sexual assault right at the beginning.
@EloisaJames told me to read this, so I did, and I'm glad. 💙 It's beyond ridiculous but fresh and fun. Couldn't put it down.
I know I am late to the Ice Planet party. I did not think this would be my cup of tea at all...but this book was just so damn delightful. I love that it didn't seem to take itself too seriously - while still being well written.
*TW for sexual assault in the first chapter.
Here's page 24 of my current read for #readjanuary. I'm enjoying this slightly ridiculous in the best possible ways alien romance very much.
My most recent 3 reads have been contemporaries, so browsed through my kindle for something a little different. I downloaded this one after Eloisa James recommended it here on Litsy. I think I'm up for some alien romance.
Picked this up based on a recommendation by @EloisaJames . It started off a bit dark when the focus was the abduction of the girls, but it eventually became a fun and sweet alien romance. I haven't decided if I want to read the rest of the books in the series, there's so many of them!
