|Bir and Zay along with Tev and Niz came together as the Fire Bond brothers after both sets lost half of their birth quads. Now all they need to complete their unconventional family is their sheraz. Ruby MacTavish can't believe that she's been kidnapped from Earth and sold as a pet of all things to a fish-faced alien ambassador. As soon as the brothers see Ruby, they are all drawn to her and can easily see that she is not a willing pet. But they also know that it's best to get to know her first and bide their time until their contract to protect the ambassador is complete. After, however, there's nothing that will prevent them from leaving with their sheraz. When Ruby's integrity puts her life in danger, will her men be able to get to her in time? Or will she be lost to them forever just when they've found her?
I really enjoyed this book. The dynamic between the brothers is a great part of this book. In fact it's kind of the backbone that holds the story up. Then you add the great chemistry between each of the brothers and Ruby and you have the makings of a really good book. Early on, Ruby seemed a bit winey to me, which I completely would have understood if it was about being treated like a pet. Instead it was about her weight and the way she was looked at on Earth. I'm not thin so I understand what the character dealt with but I didn't understand how she could continue to bring it up when she had four hunky, sexy aliens lusting after her. Luckily, she finally got the message and the rest of the book was really good, with some really great sex scenes. This is the second book in the Quads of Galafrax series, and the only one of them that I have read. It was easily able to be read as a stand alone book, but the glimpses I got of the world it's set in just makes me want to read the first and look for future ones.
