4 STARS: "The whole kidnapped-from-Earth trope is one of my favourite sci-fi hooks. Bizarrely enough, I love the notion that a normal human woman gets snatched away, is terrified, and then, somehow manages to get a happy-ever-after out of the deal by the end of the book. Hope over adversity, I guess, and in TALIA'S MATCH, we get that in buckets. Talia is just a normal woman, until she gets snatched by aliens looking to auction her off. Fortunately for her, two rather cool dudes are attending the auction by chance, as they're anti-slavery, and they purchase her once they feel the connection between them all, as well as pity for her circumstances. A prince and a dragon for heroes... well, need I say more other than hot stuff? My sole issue with this book was the length. There were bits and pieces, scenes that I felt could have been explored so much more. The sex was hot, and the characters were well-rounded, but because of the length, the story wasn't as deeply expanded as I'd have liked. That doesn't detract from the fact that it was a really enjoyable read though. I'd read the other books in the series, and I did like how the first book was referenced in this story." -- Suki, The Romance Reviews
Every day, the little man would come and lecture her that he offered the most rare and exceptional females in the known Universes. She was told she needed to pull herself together so her training could begin, as she had been acquired late and he had a special occasion in mind for her unveiling.
So, naturally, she put all her energy into irritating the jerk and doing her best to make an impression of what Earth females were capable of. In the other cells around her, she saw a wide variety of female species, but no other humans. She was rather surprised at how complacent and cooperative the other captives were, as they seemed to be training hard and taking all his instructions to heart. What idiots! How could they not be upset that they had been kidnapped and sold into slavery?
“Female, are you ready to train now?” the little man sidled up to the bars and asked her again, just like every day before that.
“Sure thing, you little eggplant. As soon as you drop me back on my own planet, I’ll get right in my time machine and travel back a hundred years to go to finishing school and become a proper little slave,” she answered him in a tone dripping with sarcasm, arms folded over her chest.
He looked back at her with a confused, then exasperated face, “You make no sense, female. Your primitive planet is nowhere near capable of time travel. You’d best resolve yourself to the fact that you will never again be seeing your home. The other females are training to make the most of their price and ensure an advantageous placement. If you have no skills, I will have no choice but to sell you as a straight pleasure worker. Try to understand that this is for both of our benefits. I took a sizable risk acquiring you from the poachers, as humans are virtually unknown to us, but there has been a recent discovery that one of your females was able to successfully breed with a Zornan clan. Proven breeding species are extremely valuable, and until the United Coalition Council approves approaching Earth directly for breeding stock, then black market humans such as yourself will make me many credits.”
Talia couldn’t believe what the horrible little man just told her. “Earth would never let you take people for breeding stock! That’s disgusting! You call us primitives, but we outlawed slavery ages ago. You can’t just steal people and sell them!” she spat in his face, wishing she could get her hands on the awful little male.
“When I get out of here, I’m going to beat you to another shade of purple, you little cretin!” she continued.
With that threat, his eyes lit up. “So you are trained for battle, then?” he asked excitedly, while bringing his tablet up to his face to make notes. “That’s very marketable, very good.”
He was still mumbling happily to himself as he walked away. It was obvious she was going to have to try a different approach. She lay back down on her cot and covered her eyes with her arm, trying to figure out what to do when she heard a quiet voice to her left.
“You shouldn’t try to aggravate him, female. What he says is true. You need to begin to train. The summit is only two days away,” said the small woman in the next cell who’d previously ignored all of Talia’s attempts at conversation.
“So you can speak English, huh?” Talia answered her with a note of irritation.
“No, silly female, you speak United, since you have a translator chip in your stubborn head,” the stranger said as she stood and walked closer to the bars. “You need to adapt and catch up, or I promise you will find yourself on a brothel cruiser servicing some of the vilest creatures you can imagine.”
The fear that Talia felt must have finally shown through the bravado, because the strange woman’s face softened and she seemed to rein in her own frustration.
“I don’t say these things to merely frighten you, human, but most of the females here are either paying for crimes or here to earn an income. There are only a few of us that have been captured against our will. You must try to make the best sale you can and pray to your gods that you will survive the life that has now been chosen for you,” the woman said before she settled herself on the floor beside Talia’s cot.
Tears finally leaked past her eyes and Talia said in a small voice, “I don’t know what’s happened to me. What am I going to do?”
“Well, that’s the easiest question to answer, my dear. You’re going to survive,” the stranger said as she smiled gently.
“We know that you watched us bathe when you first arrived, Talia,” Grae said with a wicked smirk, which caused her to blush in embarrassment at having been caught.
“We could smell your arousal when we made love, and we can’t tell you how happy it makes us that you embrace our relationship with each other, that it turns you on to watch us. That’s when we knew you truly were the one for us to complete our family,” Ash said as he stroked her hair and kissed her.
Grae leaned in to kiss her as well. “Do not be embarrassed, love. Why to do think we put on such a show for you? We needed you to want us as much as we wanted you.”
“I do want you both, very much,” Talia said as she kissed them both in return.
Talia could almost see the tension slip out of both men when she told them that she wanted them, too. She saw the gears change as both men began rubbing their hard cocks against her thighs on each side, making her breathing increase again. After coming so hard, she would have thought she would be content to rest for a bit, but all of a sudden she needed to be filled so badly it almost hurt. Her hips moved against them and she moaned at their hands on her breasts.
“God, I need you both inside of me,” she said in a desperate voice.
“Ash, get on your back,” Grae said as he sat up and pulled her with him.
Once Ash had settled onto his back in the middle of the big bed, Grae lifted her up and placed her straddling Ash’s hips, facing Grae. He lowered her until she could feel Ash’s hot, hard cock up against her wet folds. Grae slowly pushed her down and rubbed her against Ash’s cock, watching her eyes the entire time. She moaned when the head rubbed across her clit, sending the sensation throughout her entire body. She was still so sensitive from her last orgasm that she thought she could come again from the friction alone. She closed her eyes when Ash’s large hands came up to massage her breasts from behind.
“Oh baby, you feel so good on me. You’re so wet and hot,” Ash said as his hips began to increase the pressure.
Then suddenly Grae lifted her and then she was being lowered over Ash’s big cock. She could see Grae’s eyes locked to where Ash was disappearing inside of her slowly.
“Gods, you two look so good together. I’m so hard watching your pretty pussy take his cock, Talia,” Grae said before he kissed her hard.
By the time he let her mouth go, Ash was all the way inside her. She didn’t think she’d ever been so full. She was panting, trying to relax when Grae moved in closer.
“Ash, move her feet apart,” Grae said as he moved in between both of their legs and Ash moved his apart, taking hers with him, opening her up to Grae’s hot gaze on her pussy.
“He’s pretty big, baby. Are you okay?” Grae said as he moved his fingers gently around where Ash’s cock was embedded in her body.
Talia had never felt anything like it when Grae began to massage her body around Ash’s cock, trying to relax her. Apparently Ash liked it, too, because she could feel his cock twitching every time Grae’s talented fingers moved over him.
“Oh god, that feels good,” she said as she tried to slow down her breathing, “I’m okay; it’s just been awhile for me, that’s all.”
Grae took a step closer and replaced his fingers with his cock, rubbing it all along her pussy, then down to Ash’s cock and up again to tap at her clit. The sensation was out of this world and she couldn’t stop the flutter of her pussy as is flooded and took Ash a little deeper.
“Gods, Grae, if you don’t stop that, I will come before we even get started!” Ash said with a thrust of his hips.
Talia could see Grae lean in close to her and inhale a deep breath, rumbling a strange, guttural noise as he exhaled.
“Talia, you smell so fucking good. I need to taste you,” he said as he backed up to lower himself to his chest between their legs.
“Fuck,” was all she heard Ash mutter before Grae leaned in and took a long, hot lick at her cunt surrounding Ash. Ash’s hands were an iron grip on her hips now and she knew she’d have bruises tomorrow, but she couldn’t bring herself to care. Her dragon lover used his unusually long and tactile tongue to curl around Ash’s cock, teasing its way inside of her next to Ash.
“Oh my god, oh my god, oh my god…” was all Talia could mutter over and over again at the feel of Grae’s tongue on her flesh. She started to pump her hips on them both, using Grae’s hair as an anchor.
“She’s losing control, Grae, and so am I, for that matter, you bastard,” Ash gritted out through clenched teeth as he tried to still her from pumping on his cock.
With a soft laugh, Grae pulled away. “A man could develop an ego around you two,” he said as he licked his lips, removing her juices from his face.
