Rebel Mate (Interstellar Brides® Program Book 20)

A rebel alien roaming the far reaches of the galaxy. An Interstellar Bride on the run for her life. When her life crash lands into his on a remote planet, they’ll need each other to survive.

The Interstellar Brides Program guarantees it can match any female on Earth, even a cynical, street-wise, and very jaded Zara, who just wants to start over. But when she arrives on her new home planet… she gets more than promised:

Murder? Check.
Smugglers? Check.
A sexy as hell pirate who demands she follow his orders? Um, what?

Zara didn’t volunteer for this mess, but she’s a fighter. A survivor. She’ll work with a sexy—did I say bossy?—rebel to bring down the bad guys and take on a Rogue 5 legion in order to obtain what she wants, a white picket fence kind of life in outer space… if she can live long enough to get it.

5.0 out of 5 stars OMG!!! I LOVED THIS BOOK!!!

Grace Goodwin, you are AMAZING!!!!

I totally love this book from beginning to end! So much action, suspense, romance, hot sizzling sex, and LOVE!!!!

I never tire of reading Grace Goodwin's books and every book, as different as it is, will always manage to get you hooked reading it straight through. There is no break or stopping for breaks as it just pulls you in and before you know it, you are hooked. You will never be able to pull away from the Interstellar Bride's Series story until you finish reading her books to the end (or better yet; finish reading the end of the Bonus Content).

I love ALL of Grace Goodwin's books. With that being said, this book right away pulled me in with the shocking twist in the beginning of the book. From there, I knew I was going to spend my day reading and thinking about this book.

You just can't help but get so immersed with the plot and storyline of this book that you can't help but feel that you are living and experiencing everything that is going on with the characters but mainly the main character of Zara.

I won't say much at all about the story as I feel I would be giving away quite a bit but I would definitely encourage you to read this book as there is so much going on with Zara and her way of survival as well as dealing with Isaac and the forces of Cerberus.

Seriously? Why isn't any one of Grace Goodwin's books picked up by the that of Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video or any other movie network or agency? In all her books, there is an ongoing war between the Hive (similar to the Borg in Star Trek but totally different) and the Coalition ( which is made up of an alliance of different planets with different Aliens and/Species- which some are soooo pleasing to the eyes of the mind here) as well as characters that we all can relate to which makes them unforgettable. Then add action, romance, suspense, drama, mystery, hot sizzling sex and LOVE, (yes I said that before but wanted to mention this again) and you truly have an experience that takes you to a level of fulfilment as well as that to the matters of the heart!❤️ It truly does and I am always wanting more after reading one of Grace Goodwin's books. I mean that too.

I really hope that one day I am able to see of one or more of Grace Goodwin's stories (mainly that of the Interstellar Bride's Series) becomes a movie or series. I would truly love to see that as Grace Goodwin is truly an amazing great writer. Once a month, I know that I will always be transported to a new or familiar planet for a few hours ( which is one of my favorite times for that month). I will always be wishing and waiting for Grace Goodwin's books to come to life either on the big screen (movie theaters). or the little screen (TV) but either way I will be here waiting for the next Grace Goodwin story next month while still reveling in the aftermath of reading Rebel Mate. It's that good!!! A hearty toast as always to one of the best writers always, Grace Goodwin!!! 🍷🥂🍹

Every time I read the next book in any of this author's series, I think this is the best I've read so far until she publishes another book and then it is the best. This author always writes books with sexy times, action, possessive alien men and love. Zara is such a strong human female who encounters a horrible murder within minutes of her transporting to her Trion mate. She is shocked and worse realizes the murderer is giving her as a slave to a monster. Fortunately Isaak happened by at the auction block and helped her escape from the slavers along with the help of her trusty titan stick. They still have to fight before they get their sexy happily ever after.

4.0 out of 5 stars Space Pirate meets Interstellar Bride
Reviewed in the United States on October 6, 2020
Space Pirate meets Interstellar Bride candidate, in this suspenseful tale of murder, lies, spies, and of course a hot dominant alien. Zara has been sent to Trion to meet her mate. She has had a rough life, she was poor, lived on the streets and fight for everything she had. She’s a scrappy one that Zara. Isaak has been a Space Pirate for 4 years, since he left Trion for good. He had a falling out with his family and has been fighting the hive and dealing with scourge of the galaxy. That is until he hears rumors that there is a human female about to be turned over to the EVIL Cerberos. Ooohhh I hope Cerberos get’s what is coming to him!

This book took me through twists and turns, it took me through some incredibly steamy times too! Whew, Isaak is one heck of dominant alien who expects all women to be submissive...lololololol, how do think things will go when he meets a woman who is a fighter? Yep, this is going to be good! I enjoyed the story, though there was just a tad to much (he won’t want me after, she won’t give into me and trust) for my personal taste, but I also get where the characters would feel that way based on their life experiences.

I think my favorite part of the book was the ending, when everything came together, and it all just clicked. Isaak and his past, Zara and her desires, the spies and lies, and the storyline....it was a fabulous ending! If you like you like hot alien pirates.... you will love Isaak. If you like a strong, independent woman that can stand on her own two feet...even if a big ole alien is picking her up...you will love Zara. If you like a good revenge story...you will like this book! I don’t think I will ever tire of the Interstellar Brides and look forward to the next book!

I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

5.0 out of 5 stars Favorite Series Ever!
Reviewed in the United States on October 6, 2020
Even after 20+ books in this series, the stories are still unique, sexy, romantic and full of drama and adventure. Grace Goodwin does a fantastic job of making the characters seem so realistic that you can’t help but immerse yourself into the story and cheer for their happily ever after.

The world building is vivid, the danger is stark and sometimes unsettling, and the whole story is so engaging you can’t put the book down until the end (and then you just can’t wait for the next book!). Although each story is an erotic romance, you always get a sort of life lesson, or food for thought which might apply to you. In this book, it is about letting go of the past, and learning to trust others. Or not. This book can also just be a very enjoyable and entertaining break from reality. I just can’t recommend the Interstellar Brides series enough, or any of Grace Goodwin’s stories actually.

I received this book from the author at Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving my honest review. Since I rely heavily on reviews to make decisions about purchases, I will never lie or over exaggerate my opinion. There is nothing worse than seeing a bunch of 5 star reviews and realizing the book is full of errors or just plain bad and not worth my hard earned money!

3.0 out of 5 stars The Rescue
Reviewed in the United States on October 9, 2020
Zara Novak is a spunky, feisty, fighter who has had a rough life growing up and surviving on the streets. It’s time to start over with a new and better life, so she signs up to be an interstellar bride. She is matched to someone on Trion and her new mate Naron is murdered right in front of her! She is saved from being auctioned by Isaak, but someone is still after her. He takes her aboard his spacecraft to escape from those who want to take her captive again. But the scrappy little human would not hesitate to fight by his side to take down the bad guys. She is not what he would have expected in a female.

This author has been one of my favorites for eons! I could always count on her for a fantastic book. But like with many of the sci-fi authors lately, I see a direction I totally dislike. I positively do not like discipline, punishment, or spanking themes, feeling they are completely inappropriate as relates to adults. For me at least, it adds absolutely nothing of value to the story, turns my stomach, and disappoints me in my reading enjoyment. I am not a prude, but this for me is OTT and ruins an excellent story. Please, stop adding kinky nonsense that is just plain nasty. I lost all respect for both characters with the dominant/submissive tug-of-war. The whole thing leaves a bad taste in my mouth. When you want someone to just love you, you don’t need a punishing “Master” to tell you how you will obey or else the punishment will begin! That’s not love!
