Review ~ Grabbed by Vicious (Grabbed #1) by Lolita Lopez

Hallie has never run so fast in her life. One of the frightening sky warriors from the warship Valiant is hot on her heels and intent on capturing her as his new bride. He takes her down and places his collar around her neck. With one word, he claims her.

Mine.

Born and bred for the military, Vicious has spent the last twenty-four years rising through the ranks. This dark-haired sprite ensnared him with one glance. Now she is his reward.

Despite her fear of Vicious, Hallie surrenders under his skillful hands and mouth. Vicious makes a promise to her. If she’ll submit to him, she’ll know only pleasure and comfort. After a lifetime of hardship, his offer tempts her greatly.

One night with Hallie and Vicious feels his protective instincts flaring. He’ll do anything to make her happy and keep her safe, even if that means surrendering his heart. Though he intended to master her, Vicious realizes it may be his sweet Hallie who masters him.

Inside Scoop: Our heroine endures trials and violence with strength equal to that of her warrior mate. (She also witnesses F/F play, and endures a collar and light BDSM. Fortunately she likes that part.)

I have never been a runner. Hell, I don't even walk fast. But after reading "Grabbed By Vicious," I will slap some tennis shoes on my damn feet and enter the Boston Marathon if I end up with a hero as hot as the title character. Vicious is a high-ranking officer from a future world where soldiers earn enough points to enter a Grab. Think of it as Hunger Games for brides. Hallie doesn't want to get caught. She does (duh, wouldn't be a story if she didn't). Vicious collars her and off they go to his space ship. The story is mostly the two of them having sex, introducing Hallie to new sexual experiences, and, oh yeah, having more sex. I would have liked a little less bed play and more story. Yes, I said it. The characters and the world are interesting. I wanted to spend a bit of time soaking it all in. The subplots also felt a little light and one in particular (involving a rather nasty soldier's treatment of his wife) needed to be expanded so it didn't feel tacked on. Still, that didn't keep me from generally enjoying the main plot line. I'd also be interested in reading Terror and Menace's stories.
