In the near future, the world is forever altered when the existence of the Ormney is made known. But two things remain the same—serial killers still walk among us and murder is still as ugly and terrifying as ever.

With the fragile peace between their people on the line, Agent Lily Rowan and Ormney Law Keeper Jolaj must stop the horrific killings before their growing attraction makes them the killer’s next targets.

I found Deadly Lover to be fun but predictable. It did not keep me for enjoying the book but it could have been stronger if there had been a twist that added additional surprise to the story. I could anticipate the action and knew who the villain was as soon as he appeared in the story. Changing either of those would have added strength to the story.

The aliens coming to Earth and being kept in a compound was not a new concept but the way they arrived was. That part was a surprise. The plot moved at a steady pace with scenes full of tension followed by time for the reader and the characters to catch their breath.

There is a large cast of characters. Both Lily and Jolaj were very well developed. I like how it took time to reveal the circumstances that lead to Lily being injured. That part was very well done and added some mystery to the story. Jolaj’s character was revealed early. His place with the Ormney was not know for quite some time.

There are multiple side characters. Some developed and some not. There certainly plenty of choices for the next book.

The world building was very good. Little by little using description and action everything came into focus. Nothing was forced just revealed as needed.

I purchased Deadly Lover from Amazon and one thing that really bugged me was the number of typo’s. Had this been an ARC they could have been forgiven but this was the final edition. Every time I has to stop and figure out where a word really belonged or hit a misspelled word it took me out of the story. I hope Allder finds someone to do a better job of proof reading next time. The story deserved better.

The things I liked about Deadly Lover certainly outweighed the things I did not. There are just not enough good SciFi Romances being published. Charlee Allden has started a series that will add to anyone’s collection.

I tried this book on a whim and I was surprised at just how much I loved it. The genre is kind of hard to define, it's a bit of a mix of Sci-Fi Romance/Suspense/Mystery.

Deepwater Agent Lily Rowan is just coming off medical leave from a terrible training accident, a new pilot program hoping to integrate the alien Ormney into the agency. The incident has left her with a lot of scars, both physical and mental, and she's desperately trying to hold herself together in order to be reinstated as an Agent. A seemingly chance encounter ensures she gets her wish, though not in the way she expected. She's teamed up with Metro and, unofficially, the Ormney Law Keeper Jolaj in order to solve a series of what appears to be unconnected murders. As the bodies begin to pile up, Lily soon comes to the conclusion that nothing was random at all, and she'll have to find out exactly what secrets everyone is keeping in order to solve these murders.

The characters and world building are really what make this book stand out from other Sci-Fi romances I've read recently. These characters are not cardboard cut-outs in a barely believable plot strung together to form what passes for a novel. No, these characters are real, they have depth and painful pasts and even more painful presents. I really appreciated how Lily struggled with flashbacks, anxiety, and other PTSD symptoms from her 'training accident.' She doesn't just get over it, the panic and anxiety are always there and she constantly struggles with it. I loved the interaction with her various family members; her family conflicts made her seem more real and added much needed depth to her character. The Ormney are not human stand-in's either. Writing aliens that seem truly alien can be hard, but Charlee Allden manages it easily. The Ormney culture is complex, including their religion, their biology, their social structure, their ability to Slip-- it's all very fascinating and definitely alien. I loved the aliens' origins too, definitely different from the usual space-faring type.

The relationship that develops between Lily and Jolaj is gradual--which I greatly appreciated, no InstaLove here--making their romance more believable. I only had one minor complaint, I knew who the killer was almost straight from the beginning and it kind of made it frustrating seeing Lily and Co. stumble around trying to figure it out. But that was minor. There wasn't a cliffhanger ending, the main mystery gets wrapped up nicely, but there are plenty of plot threads left dangling. I sincerely hope that means the author plans more in this series, I'm on pins and needles waiting to find out what happens with the Elders Council and their future plans for Jolaj in his role as "Searcher". Also, I want to know what happens with Jolaj and Lily, will their relationship last with all the Ormney cultural hurdles? Plus, we didn't really have time to get her family's reaction--besides her brother Brian--on her new interspecies relationship. Basically, I just want more, please! This book is a hidden gem I would definitely recommend for those who like Sci-Fi Romance mixed with Mystery/Suspense.

5.0 out of 5 stars Skillfully drawn paranormal elements, hot romance 7 May 2015
By Muddy Rose Reviews - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
In a world where two species coexist in an uneasy truce, a series of murders takes place, implicating the Ormney, a near human-like race with claw appendages. The Earthers had the place first, and they outnumber the Ormney. Even so, the Ormney are a fierce, secretive race who are trying their hardest to survive in a secure compound.

Agent Lily Rowan, a special tactics officer for a private security firm who is on leave to recover from an Ormney attack, tries to stop another Ormney attacking a woman, but there’s something off about the guy. Due to her insider knowledge, she anticipates his moves and ends his life before he can kill more people.

Ormney Law Keeper Jolaj is deeply saddened by his friend’s death. Another proud lineage ended much too soon. The woman that took his life intrigues him, and soon, he pairs up with Lily to determine what’s behind the killings.

The more they look, the more scattered the evidence. This villain knows how to cover his trail. As Jolaj and Lily investigate, they develop an intense attraction, which they fight to keep cool heads. But their passion won’t be denied, even though they are different species. They must hide their affair because it is forbidden. Not easy to do with a killer hot on their trail.

This high-action paranormal romance reeled me in from the start. The paranormal world was skillfully drawn, and the romance sizzled on the page. Some typos, but I kept reading anyway for the story. This is an author I’ll read again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Highly recommended, with technical/editing reservations 8 May 2015
By T. Finley - Published on

The story is so good, engaging and original! The main character, Lily, is the most well-rounded of the crew, a sympathetic and likable woman of remarkable courage and honor. The male lead, an alien named Jolaj, is an intriguing Ormney man, perhaps a little too good to be true. Lily's recent past includes terrible injuries from a different Ormney male, one whom she trusted and liked, but who was drugged into a murderous state... forcing Lily to kill him in self-defense. That trauma has left her understandably panicky when she is too physically close to other Ormney. Yet she feels drawn to Jolaj, and he to her, and she is able to overcome her flight response more quickly than I would have expected. The two of them are key to solving a series of interspecies murders before the situation between the humans and the Ormney becomes untenable.

The murders are grim and bloody, the sex scenes are hot, and the story moves along at a perfect pace. The writing is so good that it was easy to immerse myself in the worldbuilding and character interactions.

The only things that kept me from giving this story 5 stars, the only things that pulled me out of the story, were the multiple typos and editing errors. I was reading an e-version, perhaps an early one, that really could use a thorough line-edit. As I used to be an editor, I am perhaps too sensitive to misspellings, misplaced punctuation, editing remnants, and the like, and no book is perfectly edited, but there were more than a handful of them. I hope the author is able to fix them before the next edition comes out.

All in all, though, a terrific read. I'm hoping for more stories set in this world.

Deadly Love by Charlee Allden is a great read for anyone who likes Sci Fi, Mysteries and/or Romance. It is fascinating tale of dangerous relationships with a solid who-done-it at its core that left me guessing until the end of the book. If you’ve ever been interested in dipping your toe into Sci-Fi Romance, this is a great book to do it with. The mystery aspect in particular makes for a great plot and the story line following a culture of refugees inside another land. It is very well thought out and compelling, and for me proved the major pull through the tale.
