Stephanie West ~ Forsaken ~ Release Blitz / ARC Review



𝙇𝙚𝙛𝙩 𝙛𝙤𝙧 𝙙𝙚𝙖𝙙 𝙞𝙣 𝙖 𝙘𝙡𝙖𝙣𝙙𝙚𝙨𝙩𝙞𝙣𝙚 𝙀𝙖𝙧𝙩𝙝 𝙥𝙧𝙞𝙨𝙤𝙣, Pyth felt utterly abandoned. His hatred for humans is the only thing keeping him alive, though just barely. He seizes the opportunity to break free and finally get revenge. Escaping Earth is another story. Injured, with nowhere to go, Pyth is forced to take refuge in a bubbly human child’s playhouse. Except, where there are children, there are also adults.


Victoria needs a superhero. Being a single mom, with a psycho ex-husband, while running her family farm, is exhausting on a good day. The camouflaged alien she discovers hiding in the backyard isn’t exactly who she had in mind. She’s terrified by the savage alien’s claws and razor-sharp spikes protruding through his skin, that rattles like an enraged cobra. Not to mention other daunting body parts. If it weren’t for her daughter’s plea to help him, she’d instantly call the authorities.


Forsaken, battered, and bruised, trust doesn’t come easy for Pyth or Victoria, but love and desire have a funny way of overcoming a universe of differences and healing a world of hurts.

This was my first read by this author – I do love a good alien read and the blurb on this one was very intriguing. It’s part of a series that can be read as a standalone – I tend not to start books that are a few already into a series as you end up missing out on things, but I’m glad I gave this one a chance because I was hooked from the first page – a fantastic read!

Pyth is on Earth in the hands of the military, where he has been tortured and experimented on. He manages to escape their clutches but is in a bad way and has no chance of escaping very far in his condition. He takes shelter in a child’s playhouse, but where there are children, there are adults.

Victoria runs her family farm and is a single mum to Olivia, whilst trying her best to stay away from her crazy ex husband. Her BFF helps her run the farm but Victoria stressed out to say the least. When she encounters Pyth in her daughter’s playhouse, her first thought is to call the authorities, but Olivia begs her mum not to. The come to an uneasy truce as they learn about each other.

Pyth is drawn to Victoria, her scent calls to him, and their uneasy friendship soon turns raw, animal and passionate. Victoria’s farm is attacked by the military looking for Pyth and fortunately his family have tracked him down after being a prisoner on Earth for a long time, he is finally free to leave Earth, but not without his new human family.

This was a great read, there was always something going on, I loved the alien race and all the details about them. Victoria has a wonderful strength of character, she is kind and loving and a wonderful mother to Olivia. Their ‘mating’ is hot, very possessive and ‘do not touch her’ around other males whilst their bond is new. Glad to say I devoured this and loved it, can’t wait to read the others in this series.



USA Today bestselling sci-fi and paranormal romance author. All my tales feature strong, gutsy and sometimes gifted heroines (usually human) overcoming difficult odds, a lot of action, and steamy scenes that don’t fade to black. Generally, the romantic adventures I tell are about one hero and heroine, but occasionally a girl needs more. My alien or paranormal heroes are growly and often scarred, but with marshmallow centers. Although I’ve been called dark and told my stories push boundaries, they always end happily ever after. 

As a child, I had difficulty learning to read, so anything I took an interest in was deemed acceptable. I have always enjoyed fairy tales, mythology, science fiction, and action. However, romance inspired me most of all, love being the greatest adventure. As I read, my mind wanders, spinning its own tales. So, after encouragement from friends, I figured I’d share my ramblings with the world, and my life as a science fiction and paranormal romance author began. I try to use my tales as a way to share the various escapades, comedies, and tragedies that have peppered my life, from archaeology in the hot sun to riding on a Harley with a dark stranger. It is my greatest hope you finish each story inspired to make your dreams come true no matter how impossible they may seem. 

Thank you for going on this journey with me and here’s to the imagination and a little daydream.
