Affiliations, Aliens, and Other Profitable Pursuits (Claimings #3) by Lyn Gala 5*
BLURB: A desire for status has brought Ondry and Liam to a human world to trade, but dealing with humans has brought up all the old pain in Liam’s heart. Even though Ondry would do anything to protect his beloved palteia, he doesn’t know how to protect Liam from himself. Worse, Ondry isn’t sure how to shield Liam from the shifting politics on the Rownt ship where the Calti Grandmothers are nothing like the ones they left behind on the planet.
With everything in their lives changing, Ondry and Liam have only each other. If Ondry can’t find a way to defend Liam from the ghosts of the past and overcome the impossibly short life span of a human, their small family might be over long before either of them is ready to let go. Ondry has always been a dominant and possessive Rownt, and with Liam in danger, those traits are necessary as he challenges the world to protect his lover.
My Review: Having reviewed the two previous books I thought it only right I tell everyone about book three in Lyn Gala's Claiming series. As before I give the warning that this series must be read in order to enjoy it to it's fullest. So what did I think of book three?
I can tell you that I loved it for it's extra insight into the relationship between Ondry and Liam. Especially when Ondry tries kissing, talk about hot scenes!! The book also deals with the way humans and aliens react to each other and how humans have a tendency to put human values on alien behaviour to the detriment of understanding them. This is where Liam and Ondry's relationship and understanding of each other comes into play as they try to make both sides understand the society and behaviour of the other.
Now to impatiently wait for book four and to be able to join Ondry and Liam on the next step in their amazing relationship and adventures.
