The Harvest: Taken, By M.A. Church

**This book contains Male Male Relations**
In the year 2050, humanity finds out they are indeed not alone.

Massive space ships appear without warning above the capital cities of all major nations. The planet Tah'Nar is dying. Chemical warfare has reduced the once-intersexed warrior race to sterility. They need fresh DNA in order to reproduce and have an idea for a harvesting program... and so they turn to Earth.

Earth governments negotiate a lottery, and Dale Michael assumes he's safe since he's under the Harvest age limit. How wrong he is. He's illegally harvested and claimed by Tah'Narian starship captain Keyno Shou. From the moment Keyno sees Dale, he knows he must claim the spirited human male for his own. What he doesn’t expect is a spitfire with a mind of his own—and a deadly disease that will require a risky procedure to cure.

I’m not a big sci-fi reader.  I think I have said that before, but for me to be able to enjoy a sci-fi type book, it has to be something that’s not overdone.  Something that is so out there, that you have to wonder if it is possible for this to happen at some point in the future.  With this book, I was scared a bit in the beginning because it seemed like it was a typical sci-fi alien book, but as I got further along in the story I couldn’t put it down!

We have Dale, who is an Earthling.  (I have always wanted to say that!) And he’s been living his life out knowing that when he turns  23 he will be tossed into a lottery and could end up staying with the aliens for the rest of his life.  What he doesn’t realize is that Keyno has been watching him since he first met him and is willing to break all the rules to be with him.

One thing that I enjoyed about this book was that Keyno is an alien (obviously) but even though he is an alien, there is more to him than just that.  The personality that Keyno has is just amazing, you could tell how he really felt about Dale and about the people that he was responsible for.  The only thing that I was hoping for was more of a resistance from Dale when it came to finding out what was happening and the reasons behind the harvest.

This isn’t your typical romance, or a sci-fi.  There is drama, suspense, action, romance and smut all wrapped into a great book that will keep you wanting for more and more.  This is the first book in The Harvest series and you can guarantee that I will be watching out for the rest of the series.
