Publisher's Summary

"Resonance" is supposed to be a dream - that's when your soulmate is chosen for you. And everyone on the ice planet has hooked up with a big, hunky soulmate of their own...except me. So do I want a mate? Heck, yeah. More than anything, all I've ever wanted is to be loved by someone. Except that the soulmate chosen for me?

My least favorite person on the darn ice planet: Haeden's the most cranky, disapproving, unpleasant, overbearing male alien...so why is it that my body sings when he gets close? Why is he working so hard to prove to me that he's not as awful as I think he is? I hate him...don't I?

Contains mature themes.

I love these

oh this one is emotional and adorable this is a well-done piece I really enjoyed it and I like the fight I like the way that she explores a different form of coping with severe abuse and how well she presents the protectiveness of the males in a non-damaging kind of way these are just wonderful tales I love this series I would definitely highly recommend this book.

Josie & Haeden

This one ended up being one of my favorites of the series. I am sad that Audible only has six of this series out but I’m hoping there will be more in the future. I might have to read them, and who has time for that anymore. I do look forward to the next book though, Ruby Dixon is learning how to bring the reader in with just a hint of what is happening at the end of each book. I guess I will start her Dragon series now. Narrators do a great job.

Hidden depths.

First off: what a cheeky book cover!

This is book 6 in the ICE PLANET BARBARIAN SERIES and while each story stands alone, I recommend they be read in order.

This is Josie and Haeden’s story and I love how Haeden’s horrified expression at resonating with Josie is explained. Cranky Haeden is not what I expected – he was better. Josie has experienced similar past horrors to Tiffany in book 5, but her story is handled completely differently in that regard by author Ruby Dixon - because we are not all the same. This novel had unexpectedly deep and meaningful moments I thoroughly enjoyed, together with the romance.

Audible narrators Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd do a wonderful job bringing the characters to life.

This series has been a welcome and unexpected boost to my romance listening enjoyment. It just keeps getting better.

I recommend this series.

Josie resonates!

Josie finally gets her man! The last Earth woman to resonate...or is she?
The woman who lavishes her love and attention on her friends’ children when what she really wants is her own....finally resonates...with the one man she doesn’t want. Josie spends way too much time fighting her attraction to Haeden, but when she takes off on her own, Josie has several surprises in store for her.
I just have to say, Wow - sexy walking? The only other author to make that work was Jaid Black in No Mercy. Wait, also, Loving Deviant by Laurann Dohner.
Jackson does a really good job voicing emotions. I really appreciate the combination of Jackson and Lloyd as narrators. Their voices are complimentary and fit the series.

Blue is in

These blue aliens just do it for me. Book 6 is Haeden and Josie’s book. Josie starts out with a serious chip on her shoulder towards Haeden but you can’t fight the cootie!! Eventually you have to give in.

This book is full of alpha sweetness. Haeden is not like the other aliens. He is a little less confident in his romancing abilities. He didn’t just take his woman, he let her come to him. While this was a very frustrating dynamic... it did shake things up a bit.

Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd are perfect for these books. Usually I would appreciate different voices for each series but in this case, no. I love them for these books and I am so glad they narrate each book.

Another great Ice Planet story!

I really enjoyed Josie and Hayden’s story. The hero and heroine are at odds with each other from the very beginning of the humans crashing onto the planet. He’s always scowling at her and she’s always angry. When they suddenly resonate, Josie is not happy at all! Can Hayden get her to see him as good mate material? Or are they just doomed to disagree? Narration was very well done.

OH my God these books/series are so hot and I love the way the narrators deliver each series they are great and I have gotten so use to them that if these narrators should be changed I don't think I'd enjoy the books. it would be like watching a good series and then they changed the actors/actress's, lost of taste, series dies. keep it up guys you rock.

Your perception may be wrong.

I like this story a lot. In the first part of the book, I wanted to smack Josie upside the head, but as the story progressed I started to like her more. Haeden made me want to hug him. There are a lot of feels in this story.

Josie is the last human female without a mate. She keeps hoping for 'resonance' when her khui will pick her soulmate. Everyone else has already experienced it and Josie wants to have her big, sexy alien soulmate, sooner rather than later. She looks forward to being wanted and loved by someone. But when Josie's khui picks her mate, she is anything but happy. Her khui has picked Haeden the alien she hates and that hates her as well. Josie can't believe that the chauvinistic grumpy alien is her mate. Haeden starts working to prove to Josie that he's not that awful, but is that possible?

Josie and Haeden both have pretty awful backstories so it makes sense that they would be together and help each other get past their pasts. I loved the way Haeden took care of Josie, even when she didn't know that he was. I felt like their story was much more serious than the usual sweetly funny, but it was still good and entertaining. I've read this book through Kindle Unlimited and listened to it through Audible Escape. I recommend reading or listening to this book!

That's it, I give up on which one is my favorite.

Haeden and Josie are a hilarious couple. He is clueless when she knows things and vice-versa. I laughed so many times reading this story that I lost count. Josie is a very resilient woman. Kidnapped, abused, ship wrecked, believing she would never find love from anyone, being chosen last by the last person she would have thought about, running away and then being eaten alive. Yet, even after all that, she still finds reasons to go on, to smile and be happy. Haeden gives her that, he gives her hope for the future. Josie returns the favor by giving him another chance at a family and love. One of my favorite parts was when he was carrying her back to the tribal cave like a baby. Plus, the discovery that she and Haeden made was very interesting. I really enjoyed this story and look forward to seeing what comes next. I'm especially curious about the newcomers and who took one of them. I feel another Raahosh/Liz moment coming. Congrats to the author and narrator on another job well done.
