5 stars for Betrayed by Lyndi Alexander #sciencefictionromance #scifiromance #bookreview #bookrec

Title: Betrayed

Author: Lyndi Alexander

Genre: Science Fiction Romance


Book Blurb:


A rash of mutated bodies discovered on planet Andaan reveals that someone is killing women in an attempt to turn them into reptiles. Taskforce agent Kylie Sanderson’s passion for her job drives her to discover why this is happening, who's behind the murders, and how to prevent more grotesque deaths.


Shapeshifting alien Griff comes to Andaan to stop his brethren from their deadly experiments. As one of the Okonnan lizard people, he struggles to gain Kylie's trust and to prove that his goal is the same as hers. In her eyes, Griff is an untested enemy.


When Kylie is abducted and subjected to the transformation process, the only one who tries to rescue her is Griff. On the run together with no support, can Kylie and Griff solve the mysteries of her past? How will Kylie deal with a very different passion competing with the one she holds for the job that means so much to her?


My Review:


Can Kylie and Griff stop the abductions and cruel experiments before it’s too late? Can Kylie let her heart do the talking when it comes to Griff? Betrayed is a sci-fi romantic adventure I couldn’t put down. The world-building is impressive. The characters are engaging. The romance is classic science fiction romance with a twist I didn’t see coming. Trust me, you’ll want to read Betrayed.


Let’s start with the world-building. Lyndi Alexander lives and breathes sci-fi and it shows in her world-building. The intricacies of her world are layered throughout. Everything is accounted for to make this book believable. I dove right in and didn’t want to leave.


The characters are well-written and relatable. Even with the shifters and aliens, each character has their own set of morals, personality, and emotions. I connected with Kylie and Griff most of all, though.


The romance is equal parts enemies to lovers and classic science fiction. The romantic tension is tempered by the action which had me whipping through the pages. An exciting sci-fi romance to be savored.
