Reviewing Breeding Stations by Chris T. Kat
Breeding Stations (Alliances #1) by Chris T. Kat 4*
BLURB: Spunky commander Berit Turner is known for two things: his huge libido and his lack of a filter—he says what he thinks. Berit sets his mind on being part of a mission to Ligador to make sure the planet is habitable for humans. He’s ecstatic when his team is assigned to the task force. A delegation of Nadisc, a humanoid alien race, accompanies them, and passion ignites between Berit and their commanding officer, Tom. But Berit is determined that Tom is just another notch on his bedpost, as he doesn’t do relationships.
The excursion to Ligador goes wrong from the beginning, when they discover Ligador has been established as a breeding station by their worst enemy: the Tash’Ba. Dinosaur-like creatures become the team’s worst nightmare, and staying alive is going to take everything they’ve got… and then some.
My Review: I liked this story. The world building was well thought out and believable. The hero is a mouthy, no filters added, rule breaking kind of guy who still manages to get the job done and be promoted to a leadership position. The Alien allies are just different enough to be fun and the alien enemy are very much in the monster category. I won't give any of the plot away but I believe all the characters made this story work. The author has managed to add depth and quality to them that makes reading this book fun, plus there was the addition of interesting alien/human sex scenes.
