Jupiter and Seneca are Arena Dogs, genetically engineered slaves created to serve at the will of their masters. From the beginning, Jupiter was destined for the gladiator arena where a Dog faces death every day. Seneca became a gladiator only after years of abuse in a pleasure house and he owes his success in the arena to the Dog he secretly loves—Jupiter. Slated for death after a rigged match in the gladiator arena, they’re instead rescued and taken off the planet by the Resistance. When the escape ship is recaptured, their only hope to remain free is a human woman with an agenda and secrets of her own.
Feeona is a thief and a con artist, but that doesn’t make her one of the bad guys. Normally, the Arena Dogs would be safe in her care. Even if she wasn’t crazy attracted to them she’d want to help them, but their presence has interfered with her plans and a cause so close to her soul that nothing can be more important—not even the two men who are rapidly taking up residence in her heart.
Will Feeona find a way to save them all or will she be forced to choose who to save and who to betray?
Tempting Jupiter by Charlee Allden (Arena Dogs, #2)
Feeona is a thief, but little did she know, two powerful gladiator-slaves were about to steal her heart. Slated for death, Jupiter, bred and trained to be a source of entertainment in the arena, and Seneca, the an almost beautiful man raised as a vessel to give sexual pleasure until he was cut loose to embrace the gladiator ways or perish will be rescued, not once, but twice in a daring space escape gone wrong.
Feeona knows the pain of captivity, so rescuing these Arena Dogs was an easy call, but with her own secrets to keep and her own agenda to carry out, she may be faced with having to decide if her next “private job” is worth betraying the two men she has learned to love and respect. Her mission is one no one can ever know, it is personal, but her heart is shredded knowing she must make the hardest decision of her life, all because she fell in love.
TEMPTING JUPITER by Charlee Allden is a fantastic science fiction journey into dark worlds, slavery, noble causes and even romance. The plot is fabulous, particularly Feeona’s secret mission, and saving the Arena Dogs from a death they did not deserve after the lives they lived is great. Finding your mate or mates is always a heartstopper. Truly erotic, almost to the point of me thinking, “What? You are about to die and your mind is where?” Don’t get me wrong, these three really are perfect together, and the sex is intimate, explicit and yet their emotions are well in play.
Myself, I would like to have more on Feeona’s secret mission, because THAT is a tearjerker. ... And that special promise made, I wanted to see it fulfilled.
A quick, action-packed space traveling read that could cause overheating of the main rocket thrusters. (No pun intended!)
