‘Resonance’ is supposed to be a dream – that’s when your soulmate is chosen for you. And everyone on the ice planet has hooked up with a big, hunky soulmate of their own…except me. So do I want a mate? Heck yeah. More than anything, all I’ve ever wanted is to be loved by someone. Except that the soulmate chosen for me? My least favorite person on the darn ice planet.

Haeden’s the most cranky, disapproving, unpleasant, overbearing male alien… so why is it that my body sings when he gets close? Why is he working so hard to prove to me that he’s not as awful as I think he is? I hate him… don’t I?

Ice Planet Holiday is sixth book of the series and I’ve been slowly re-reading all these romances. The book starts when Josie is feeling very down about being the only human left that hasn’t resonated yet but then something surprising happens; her IUD falls down. Josie is very exited about this and runs to find out who her mate is.

“This…is not what I wanted.”

She’s trusting her ‘cootie’ to make a good choice but then she founds out who it chose; the only person who hates her and who she can’t stand. Josie has always felt like a reject because of his past and she’d do anything to change her fate. Josie wants a baby badly but she’d never bring one to the world where she can’t give it what she never had; joy, love and the feeling welcome.

Haeden doesn’t hate Josie. It’s actually the opposite; he thinks she’s sunlight and warm smiles, laughter and happiness. The problem is that she’s small human and he thinks that humans needs to be kept safe. Josie is fragile and he’s afraid to repeat his past.

Sadly this book was a little miss for me. I liked the last few chapters but the slowburn was killing me. I was yelling Josie to give Haeden a chance already instead of trying everything to avoid their mating, hurting both of them emotionally and physically.
