Review: Blade by Alexandra Ivy and Lauren Wright
Sexy Suit, Blade was held captive and abused for decades. Benson Enterprises was desperate to use his superior blood to create super soldiers. But when he’s finally rescued, he can’t return to the Wildlands with the other prisoners. Not without the female he was forced to watch being impregnated. The female who has gone missing.
Beautiful and broken, Valli just wants to run away and never look back. But with the shocking news of her pregnancy fresh in her mind, she wonders if that’s even possible. Told by her captors that one of the caged animals assaulted her, she knows she must do everything in her power to keep her unborn child safe. But when a glorious male tracks her down and claims her and her baby as his own, will she have the strength to walk away?

The female main character was impregnated against her will by crazy scientists.
The novella is part of a series but I haven't read any of the others and followed this one just fine.
More an HFN.
What I Liked:
I liked how Blade was determined to find the woman impregnated against her will, with his child, and his determination to protect her from further harm despite having been held captive and abused himself for a long time by humans.
What I Didn't Like:
I know it's a frequent complaint of mine with novellas - and it's really hard to get the balance right - but this felt incredibly rushed.
It was a perfect example of a story with so much promise lacking depth due to the constraints of the word count.
All in all, I enjoyed Blade, it was a great little book for inhaling in a couple of hours and it kept me entertained but sadly I probably won't remember it a year from now.
However, I'd not be opposed to reading other books in this series as the world - what we saw of it anyway! - had potential and the writing was pretty good.
