Publisher's Summary

"Resonance" is supposed to be a dream - that's when your soulmate is chosen for you. And everyone on the ice planet has hooked up with a big, hunky soulmate of their own...except me. So do I want a mate? Heck, yeah. More than anything, all I've ever wanted is to be loved by someone. Except that the soulmate chosen for me?

My least favorite person on the darn ice planet: Haeden's the most cranky, disapproving, unpleasant, overbearing male alien...so why is it that my body sings when he gets close? Why is he working so hard to prove to me that he's not as awful as I think he is? I hate him...don't I?

Contains mature themes.

Josie & Haeden

This one ended up being one of my favorites of the series. I am sad that Audible only has six of this series out but I’m hoping there will be more in the future. I might have to read them, and who has time for that anymore. I do look forward to the next book though, Ruby Dixon is learning how to bring the reader in with just a hint of what is happening at the end of each book. I guess I will start her Dragon series now. Narrators do a great job.

Josie resonates!

Josie finally gets her man! The last Earth woman to resonate...or is she?
The woman who lavishes her love and attention on her friends’ children when what she really wants is her own....finally resonates...with the one man she doesn’t want. Josie spends way too much time fighting her attraction to Haeden, but when she takes off on her own, Josie has several surprises in store for her.
I just have to say, Wow - sexy walking? The only other author to make that work was Jaid Black in No Mercy. Wait, also, Loving Deviant by Laurann Dohner.
Jackson does a really good job voicing emotions. I really appreciate the combination of Jackson and Lloyd as narrators. Their voices are complimentary and fit the series.

Blue is in

These blue aliens just do it for me. Book 6 is Haeden and Josie’s book. Josie starts out with a serious chip on her shoulder towards Haeden but you can’t fight the cootie!! Eventually you have to give in.

This book is full of alpha sweetness. Haeden is not like the other aliens. He is a little less confident in his romancing abilities. He didn’t just take his woman, he let her come to him. While this was a very frustrating dynamic... it did shake things up a bit.

Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd are perfect for these books. Usually I would appreciate different voices for each series but in this case, no. I love them for these books and I am so glad they narrate each book.

Hidden depths.

First off: what a cheeky book cover!

This is book 6 in the ICE PLANET BARBARIAN SERIES and while each story stands alone, I recommend they be read in order.

This is Josie and Haeden’s story and I love how Haeden’s horrified expression at resonating with Josie is explained. Cranky Haeden is not what I expected – he was better. Josie has experienced similar past horrors to Tiffany in book 5, but her story is handled completely differently in that regard by author Ruby Dixon - because we are not all the same. This novel had unexpectedly deep and meaningful moments I thoroughly enjoyed, together with the romance.

Audible narrators Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd do a wonderful job bringing the characters to life.

This series has been a welcome and unexpected boost to my romance listening enjoyment. It just keeps getting better.

I recommend this series.

Another great Ice Planet story!

I really enjoyed Josie and Hayden’s story. The hero and heroine are at odds with each other from the very beginning of the humans crashing onto the planet. He’s always scowling at her and she’s always angry. When they suddenly resonate, Josie is not happy at all! Can Hayden get her to see him as good mate material? Or are they just doomed to disagree? Narration was very well done.

That's it, I give up on which one is my favorite.

Haeden and Josie are a hilarious couple. He is clueless when she knows things and vice-versa. I laughed so many times reading this story that I lost count. Josie is a very resilient woman. Kidnapped, abused, ship wrecked, believing she would never find love from anyone, being chosen last by the last person she would have thought about, running away and then being eaten alive. Yet, even after all that, she still finds reasons to go on, to smile and be happy. Haeden gives her that, he gives her hope for the future. Josie returns the favor by giving him another chance at a family and love. One of my favorite parts was when he was carrying her back to the tribal cave like a baby. Plus, the discovery that she and Haeden made was very interesting. I really enjoyed this story and look forward to seeing what comes next. I'm especially curious about the newcomers and who took one of them. I feel another Raahosh/Liz moment coming. Congrats to the author and narrator on another job well done.

Hated Josie

I love the narration, the two narrators always do a great job. I loved Hayden, he was so sweet but I hated Josie. She was so selfish all the time. I understood that she had a bad childhood and early adulthood but I could not stand her. When she was eaten by the bird I was cheering instead of being worried. Would have rated this higher if not for Josie.

***Barbarian's Mate***

I love Josie and Haeden's story, their both had a very sad past specially our little Josie she is a fighter and a survivor who never gives up and doesn't complaint., she accepts and face all her problems head on and that is incredibly strong. Haeden the grumpy surly barbarian is perfect for Josie. Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd are both excellent narrators.
