Zavir is a guardian. He’s the best the Krinar has. His assigned vocation is to uncover the Resistance movements popping up around the earth, and eliminate them. New information about a fast-growing Resistance camp sends him to Costa Rica, home of the largest Krinar Centre. His informant is a human girl. She wants to make a deal–her traitorous family’s lives in exchange for information–but Zavir doesn’t make deals, and he takes no prisoners. When the time comes to wipe out the secret organization, his pretty, innocent little mole will learn the truth. She made a deal with the devil, and the price is something far more tantalizing than information.

I received a free ARC of this book in exchange for an honest review.
This is the second Krinar novel I have read by Charmaine Pauls. I am so grateful to have received an ARC because I loved this book just as much as I did the first one.
Zivar feels a little darker and more removed from humankind than his alien kin we have met in earlier novels. He and Liv don’t exactly engage in purposeful BDSM play, but he is definitely dominant and expects Liv to be submissive to him. He also firmly believes in punishments when she breaks his rules.
Liv is a fierce heroine who I enjoyed getting to know and would love to read more about in the future. She is kind, brave, loving and protective of her loved ones. This is one couple I would love to read more about one day.
This book definitely belongs in the romance section, but there is also enough science fiction and intrigue to draw in readers from other genres. I would definitely recommend this book to others who don’t mind a little kink with their love story!
Noelle Keene tries to stay away from the Krinar. Even after her best friend fell head-over-heels for one of the mysterious aliens, Noelle doesn’t trust the lethal invaders, especially since her small town upbringing has taught her to fear the worst. Besides, alpha males just aren’t her type. But when a handsome one-night-stand follows her from New York to West Virginia, there’s only one way to protect her family from the dangerous K. Noelle strikes a simple deal: one month. She’ll be all his for one month, and then he’ll leave her alone forever. But this isn’t a game, this is a hunt, and nothing will stay simple for long. With unrest brewing and Noelle caught in the middle, will her plan to save everyone cost her everything?
This novella is a companion to Domination Games, but can also be read as a standalone.

* As stated in the blurb, this could be read as a standalone, but it would be very beneficial to read Domination Games first. I received this book as an ARC in exchange for an honest review.
Submission Games is CRAZY sexy. I definitely think it is the most erotic of all the Krinar novels I have read. It is a self-contained story in a novella, but I like that it wasn’t insta-love (at least for the heroine), unlike most novella length romances. As usual, I wish it was longer. But I have never been a huge fan of the shorter length novels.
Submission Games is a fantastic one-sitting book that will leave your panties wet and your nether bits tingling. I definitely recommend picking up this book as soon as it is released, on July 31st, 2018. Bonus, it will be available on Kindle Unlimited!
