Chase Decker wants to be enslaved. Holly Danek wants to set him free. Is it possible for both of them to get their wish? Ever since Chase heard about Silenia, he wanted to go there. A planet where human-alien hybrids such as him are kept as sex pets is the realization of his darkest fantasies. The only downside? He’ll be killed if he tries to escape, but Chase won’t let inconvenient little details get in his way. He lets himself get caught. Now, all he has to do is pass the pet training program and wait for a sexy female to buy him. Holly is the head trainer in Silenia’s best pet training center. She hates her job. She secretly wants to set free all the enslaved aliens on Silenia, but she’s powerless to realize her dream. Meeting Chase turns her life upside down. All of a sudden she has an ally: a man who matches her deepest fantasies. But then Chase’s misbehavior marks him for death and the clock is ticking. Can the two of them change an entire world in 48 hours? Note to reader: Hers, Unbroken is an erotic science fiction romance featuring a romance between a human and a human-alien hybrid. This is the second book in a series, but it can be read as a standalone. No cliffhangers! If you enjoy action, dystopian scifi, and steamy sexy times, this might be what you’re looking for!
“Unidentified vessel…,” the aggressive male voice barked over the communications link. “Drop your shields and prepare to be boarded. Resistance will be met with lethal force.”
Chase Decker was about to get caught. His small clunker of a space shuttle didn’t have defenses, so he was helpless before the approaching warship. This was all part of the plan, but it didn’t stop his palms from getting sweaty as they clutched the controls. He switched off the engine and let his ship drift. The sleek, menacing Silenian vessel approached. It was three times bigger than the rust bucket he was flying, and twice as fast. Its open gun ports stared at him, signaling he’d be blown to dust if he didn’t cooperate. Behind the approaching vessel, Chase saw a slice of the copper-colored planet. Silenia.
Slave planet. Extremely dangerous. And exactly the place I want to reach…
The corner of his mouth curled up. It was an isolated human colony boasting heavy defenses. Smart space voyagers stayed away from it because Silenian humans didn’t take kindly to uninvited visitors. Aliens or hybrids straying too close to the planet tended to disappear without a trace.
Chase was a human-alien hybrid, and he knew he was about to disappear. His instincts warned him of danger, but he ignored the buzz in the back of his mind. He intended to play along and hoped they wouldn’t shoot him on sight.
A loud clank resonated in the hull, and the entire shuttle rattled, indicating the Silenian vessel had docked. Chase took his sidearm off the holster and placed it on the console on his right. He got out of the pilot’s chair.
“Open the airlock!” came the stern command over the communication link.
Chase hit the panel next to the airlock to allow the Silenians entry. He backed up a step as heavily armed space marines in dark blue armor rushed into his shuttle, their weapons pointed at him, their eyes hidden behind black visors. They took over the cramped space within seconds.
“Stay where you are! Hands behind your head!”
Chase did as ordered.
“Look at the size of him,” one of the marines commented.
“Stay alert,” another returned.
The first marine waved an instrument at him. It made a blip, and the man nodded at his companions.
The next one fired at him. The stun charge slammed into his chest and next he knew he was lying on his back, struggling to draw a breath. Chase gasped and snarled with pain.
“He’s not out yet?”
A net was thrown over him and the marines closed in. A final stun charge hit his chest and everything went black.

As head of the pet training centre, Holly knows exactly what that training involves. Chase deliberately gets himself caught to be taken to the training centre, because that is what he really wants! To be a sex slave. Holly though, wants to set him and all the other pets free. But Holly only has Chase for 48 hours before they come for him. Can they work together to get what they BOTH want??
This is book 2 in the Her series but you don't NEED to have read book one, Hers Untamed, for this one to make sense. However, personally, I think you SHOULD read it before this one. It will give you a better picture of the people of Silenia, and just what having a pet means to them. It will also give you a better picture of just how different Holly is from the rest of her people.
Also, I said in my review for that book, I wanted Jax, the 'pet', to have a say, because he didn't. Chase DOES have a say here, and it does creep my star rating up a fraction but I still can't stretch to the full 5 stars.
And I think that's mostly because the rebellion happens almost overnight! One day, they all want to keep their pets under lock and key, and the next, everyone is free!! Felt really kinda rushed to me.
It's still a really great read, and I loved that Chase refuses to perform for anyone but Holly. Loved that she couldn't quite get her head round the fact he wanted to be a sex slave.
And I did read it in one sitting!
Are there more planned?? I hope so. Even with the rushed rebellion, I think these people have more to say.
4.5 stars, rounded up for the blog.

My name is Anna, I'm an erotic romance author, and my goal in life is never to have another writer's block. I've been in love with action and futuristic stuff from an early age, whether it's in books, movies, or video games. More recently, I also developed a taste for steamy romances. The stories in my head contain these elements in different combinations and I look forward to putting them all on (virtual) paper - for my own amusement, if nothing else. I live in Germany with my husband, my overactive imagination, and pipe dreams of fortune and glory. Currently working on my next book, details to follow. Want FREE BOOKS?
