Gena Showalter’s Enslave Me Sweetly is the second book in her Alien Huntress series. Our heroine is Eden, who is a beautiful alien and something like a government assassin. Her boss, who also happens to be her dad, teams her up with cocky and deadly agent Lucius. The pair butt heads, but of course, sexual tension simmers beneath the surface. The two work together to crack open a human-slavery ring and fall for each other in the process.
Our book kicks off with Eden trying to take down the man behind the human slavery ring, but she fails and is badly injured. Her boss, and adopted father, allows her to try again, but only with a partner. Of course, Lucius is sexy, dark, and totally alpha. Each tries to prove their worth to the other, each trying to prove themselves the better agent as they go undercover. But the more time they spend together, the more they are drawn to each other. Eden has to serve as bait for the slavery ring, which brings even more danger and more men who want to possess her exotic beauty.
Eden and Lucius are steamy, steamy, steamy. They are combustible as a couple and I couldn’t wait for each moment they were able to steal together. This book also introduced a favorite character of mine, Devyn, who gets his own book down the road.
On a side note, I was bummed out not to see any of my beloved characters from the last book, Awaken Me Darkly.
H-O-T. A great series. 5 stars.
