Format: Kindle Edition
It's been quite a few years since I read this series; wrongly assuming book 6 was a definite conclusion when the person responsible for the almost total destruction of the Zetithian race was unmasked and revenge exacted.

In this book, Dax takes the lead role. He's under pressure to find a mate and produce lots of cute babies to help re-establish the Zetithian race, yet he's never found himself attracted to anyone. But he cannot fight his immediate response to a young waitress he meets and finds himself willing to help.

Ava is in need of transportation off planet, and Dax is the knight in shining armour that can help her escape an abusive ex-boyfriend and find sanctuary with another ex. Yet as they journey through space Ava begins to question her decision, and soon it appears she has no choice but to pay a visit to her father's homeworld in the hopes of securing a more peaceful future.

Although it takes a little time for Ava and Dax to admit their attraction to each other, they are soon making up for lost time. In fact I'm surprised they actually accomplish what they do in this book when they spend so much time bouncing off each other's various body parts. Despite the over abundance of sex scenes, there is still plenty of plot and some great secondary characters. The dialogue is sharp plus there is a good degree of humour as Ava, Dax and a number of their alien shipmates interact. "Virgin" has reawakened my interest in this series, and I'll be checking out the other books available.

This was a book which could be read as a stand alone story full of humour, charm and a couple who are absolutely adorable, but also it continues the saga of the Zetithians and their need to repopulate their species. I loved reading about a Zetithian and his mate as well as all the secondary Characters, who were not just there as scenery but were as well rounded and as entertaining as the main ones.

Virgin No More - 3.5 Stars 8 Jun. 2011
By chb-book addict - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I've read the other books in this series but this one just didn't get off the ground for me. I enjoyed the storyline but the characters didn't seem real to me. Dax and Ava were very one dimensional, IMO. Ava's main concern was that she was falling for the wrong man - again! Dax just wanted to smell someone who he could mate with. Of the two, I liked Dax better, he was very single minded and he had more depth of character.

I didn't get the sense of urgency in this book that I had with the others, all the remaining Zetithians have been saved and now we are learning about some of the men on the ship. Dax is apparently the only virgin Zetithian in existence and he's very picky. I actually think there were too many additional characters, I was actually getting confused at one point. Waroun and Kots were the most fun but, if I had read one more virgin joke, I was ready to scream.

The background wasn't very complete. Dax received his ship as reparation for the destruction of Zetithian - is he wealthy now? We know Ava's father is from Acquerei but we don't know what happened to him or even what he looked like. We don't know if the stone really compelled people to act in a certain way. The ending seemed rushed and forced.

Will I read the next book, yes - was this one enjoyable, yes. Just not as high a standard as the previous books.

Best Read 1 Jun. 2011
By LAS Reviewer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Virgin blew me away with its entertaining story line, exciting possibilities and more purr-fectly charming Zetithians for fans to swoon over. Ms. Brooks might have heard me squealing in delight when I found out that Virgin is a continuation of the series that I fell in love with. I'm pretty sure I was that loud in my excitement. This is most definitely a standalone read because it picks up with one of the survivors of that ship at the end of Hero. I met a lot of new and fascinating characters and I commend the author and her creative talents.

What am I referring to? Every time the author introduces a new character, he or she appears so naturally and provides ample opportunities for the hero and heroine through their interactions with them to grow, and for the plot to move forward. Another thing with Ms. Brooks' writing is her sense of humor. If her characters can pull off a joke or pun or have dialogue scenes with witticisms that make a reader roll on the floor, the author finds every one of them and uses them to perfection. In this latest book, her sense of fun and the ridiculous is as sharp as ever. All someone has to do is mention Ms. Brooks' name and I break out into a grin.

When the book starts, a reader meets the heroine, Ava, first. I got the biggest kick out of her but don't let her anywhere near your frying pans. She's a woman with smokin' hot passions and I'm not talking about her cooking. She's courageous, clever, quick on her feet and even more alien than the past heroines in the series. I am in love with her hair. Kudos to the author for making something so ordinary into the most amusing, unique and captivating feature a heroine has ever had. It is a brilliant stroke of genius and is another testimony to Ms. Brooks' vivid imagination.

Dax is one of the newly found Zetithians and he's so dreamy. I really enjoyed reading about his falling in love and how he goes about it. It's not perfect and that made it all the more special. I also enjoyed the role he ends up playing. It was sort of mystical and very heroic. What makes it even better? He wasn't doing it for the glory but something a lot more basic and romantic, love. My favorite description of him comes from Ava: "He was a big purring kitten of a man..." How can a reader not fall in love with him too?

I had an absolute blast with the secondary characters. Waroun constantly gave me the giggles, Kots was creepy and totally cool, Threldigan is a character I'd love to know more about, and Quinn was a character with a surprising bit of depth, after he took a bath.

Remember I mentioned fun dialogue? This line had me in stitches and is just a small example of the fun that is in store for readers throughout the entire book. " want to get dinner over with so you can get back to the ship and play snuggle bunnies with Super Kitten." There are so many moments of wonderful repartee between Dax, Ava and the other characters that it made reading this story a breeze. I never knew who was going to say what and it guaranteed my absolute focus on the story. I didn't want to miss a thing.

I'd be remiss if I didn't tease readers with the hot factor in the book. Yes, the powerful snard is back but I also think the author challenged herself a bit with some of the physical relationship scenes this time around. It's really eyebrow raising and quite erotic and yet even in the midst of all those increased pheromones, some scenes get tickled with the brush of humor to an enjoyable degree. I loved it!

It's not all purrs, bites and sex in trees; there are some seriously nasty villains chasing Dax and Ava. At one point I thought there was one group but as I read I figured out that there were two factions chasing my new favorite hero and heroine and I didn't know which group was worse and who was going to get to them first. It was a great bit of writing because it kept me on the edge of my seat. I liked the idea that things the main characters thought they knew were actually mistruths and the revelations were gripping. The confrontation was full of action and crisp writing and I felt like I was right in the thick of it. It's another strong point in this book's favor.

Virgin is high caliber entertainment from beginning to end - it hit all my happy buttons and I couldn't put it down. I continue to be amazed as to the quality and vibrant imagery painted within its pages, whether it be flora, fauna or characters. Ms. Brooks has consistently written well thought out intricate stories that amuse and entertain and Virgin continues the trend. It's been an awesome reading experience and I am so glad the author has more coming out. I simply can't get enough of that snard!

Awesome Series! 29 July 2011

I started reading this series when I picked up one of the books for free on the kindle and I have not put down the series since! I have blown through all the books and can not WAIT for the 8th book Stud to be released. I will be reading these books until the end of the series and while I am excited to see how it ends I will be sad at the same time.

Wow! Gimme more! 26 Jun. 2011

I have read all the Cat Star Chronicles and will read them again. There's not a bad one in the bunch. Sex aside, which I give five stars, I enjoyed the story. There were times where I laughed and having extra characters in the stories made it more interesting. The rich details of the planets, creatures and ships made it seem so real that if it was true, I would be making arrangements to leave Earth for the stars.

A song for the seventh book. 3 Jun. 2011
By Ed Pegg Jr - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback Verified Purchase
At a seedy bar, saying au revoir, Capt. Jack's
Amoristic eyes, soon detect a rise, in Dax --
He's been chaste for years, hid in space frontiers, out there
From the age of two, no girls to pursue, not fair.
Long without a mate, learned to navigate, got ship;
Valorcry the name, but without a dame, the skip
Ferried goods and folk, figuring he's broke, for sex
A refugee outworn, he's of Zetith-born, rejects.

Then into his life comes Ava
Sparking in his heart a crave. A
Wholly new degree of fire
Captain Jack perceives desire.

For the bar of sleeze, Ava maître d's, earning
Just enough to live, there's a lot she'd give, yearning
Freedom from a jerk, find some better work, go home
Saving up for weeks, for the love she seeks, to roam
Boyfriend intervenes, starts some nasty scenes, will it
Stop her wayward flight? Jerkwad starts a fight, skillet
Knocks the bastard prone, grabs her father's stone, dumps him
Packs and leaves the flat, searches for the Cat, finds him

Dax assays her eyes of aqua
She can barely walk or talk. A
Man so hot and strong and dreamy,
Melting ice into pure steamy.

Planetary cruise, comedy ensues, once launched
Never thinking straight, cannot conjugate, lovestaunched
Even out in space, they don't yet embrace. Too scarred.
So what will they do? Maybe help from crew. This bard
Won't try to advise, but expect surprise. Quite fun
Planet-faring cruise, dialog and clues. Well-spun.
Every line a joy. Is it hot? Oh boy. Purred-necked
Randy scenes abound, fantasies profound. Perfect.

Just in case you have some queries
I have loved this whole great series
