REVIEW – Science Fiction Romance // Hunted by Liliana Carlisle

(The Alpha Collectors #1)
Liliana Carlisle

Liliana Carlisle has managed to pack quite a lot into this novella, and I thoroughly enjoyed all of it. The book touches on some pretty dark themes and Calum, the hero, is quite physically rough with Aria when they first meet, immediately upping the ante in this fast-paced and twisty enemies-to-lovers romance. I really enjoyed the author’s prose, the story flowed smoothly and the story very easy to read. In fact I completed it in one sitting and enjoyed every moment of it! Highly recommended if you’re looking for an omegaverse story that finds the middle path between dark and sweet!

Despite being a quicker read there was plenty of conflict between Aria and Calum, plus a good deal of heat. This couple have chemistry in spades and the sex scenes were incredibly steamy and erotic. Whilst most of the book focuses just on the two protagonists, allowing us to really get to know them, the author did add colour to the story by including a few side characters.

Speaking of our main characters, Aria/Rebecca was one tough cookie. Possibly a little naïve at times but entirely understandable given that she is only nineteen. The hero, Calum, displayed some pretty unpleasant behaviour before we really got the chance to know him, so I initially found it a little harder to warm to him. As the story progressed not only did he redeem himself but I could understand why he acted the way he did. He definitely earned himself a place in both my and Aria’s hearts.

Whilst I was left with a few questions about the how their society was structured, there was enough world building for me to work with and, since this is part one of a series, I’m sure we will find out more in future books. As it’s a fairly quick read the story could easily have been overwhelmed by too much exposition on the world, so overall I’m happy with the balance the author went for.

Rating: 4 out of 5.
