10. Fated Mates of Breeder Prison by Tammy Walsh
A great book series, I’m not a fan of the sci-fi genre, but a Sci-fi Alien prison romance book is something you don’t have the chance to read every day, so, I stumble into this book after searching for another, and I have to admit, It’s a great surprise, fast-paced, very unique plot, well-crafted characters, steamy situations and twists here and there make this book series, the best of its niche.
