Ice Planet Barbarians
Ice Planet Barbarians: The Complete Series: a SciFi Alien Serial Romance | Ruby Dixon
53 posts | 52 read | 27 to read
LOST You'd think being abducted by aliens would be the worst thing that could happen to me. And you'd be wrong. Because now, the aliens are having ship trouble, and they've left their cargo of human women - including me - on an ice planet. FOUND And the only native inhabitant I've met? He's big, horned, blue, and really, really has a thing for me...

Ridiculous and fun, just the book I needed right now.

KristiAhlers That‘s exactly how I felt about this book. Light, and doesn‘t take itself too seriously. Perfect after a heavy read or just a bad day really. 3w

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. 🤣

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🌶

Ummmm…wow 🌶🌶🌶🌶🌶
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.

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 🤦🏻‍♀️

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.

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)

LibrarianRyan I agree. I had the same thing. BookTok made me read it. I have my review written, just not posted yet. 11mo

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.

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.

🤣 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.

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

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.

EloisaJames It‘s true...the idea wears off. But for some reason I really liked the first few I read. Then I thought maybe it was the combo of a blue vibrating guy who has no choice but to adore you? Pure wish fulfillment. But then I remembered how much I like being clean and not pregnant and the charm of the books wore off. 4y
Usagi Bahahahaa! I do think the writing is pretty good, not gonna lie, but it did become redundant after a few books. You are right though, having someone that wants you and is completely smitten with you-- that is quite alluring in these books. 4y

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!

EloisaJames My pleasure!!! Love the Klingon ref. Of course!! 5y

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

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!

#blameitonLitsy #romantsy #sciencefiction #Kindle

MeganB I kind of dropped out of this one early (I do that a lot, I get very easily distracted) but now I'm intrigued enough to pick it up again! 6y
Chachic @MeganB I'm the opposite, I should be better at dropping books that I'm not enjoying! I wasn't a fan of the start of this book but it got better. 6y
MeganB @Chachic I was like that as a kid! But around 15 or so I got to be a super mood driven reader so I ditch a lot of good stuff that's just not what I want to be reading right then. It works I guess, I do go back to things sometimes so I don't miss out on TOO much ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ 6y

Chachic @MeganB I think of myself as a mood reader too! But I tend to finish (or at least skim) the books that I start reading. Sometimes, I even stay up late to finish a book even though I'm not really liking it! I just want to know how it ends hahaha. 6y
EloisaJames I'm glad you liked it. The dark part (i.e. Alien rape) doesn't come up in hardly any of the others. They are a repeat reading experience, which can be nice. 6y
Chachic @EloisaJames Thanks for the heads up. Are the others as good or even better than this one? 6y
MeganB I get that! Even if I abandon something I do still read the last chapter but i tend to do that before I'm done anyway 😬 6y
