"I have to describe this book as AWESOME!"
Lacey Garrett has answered an email requesting help
from "zainman" only to find herself in the strangest dream
she's ever concocted. Only, it's not a dream.
Zain Masters, an intergalactic planet cartographer had
ship shot down while trying to check the planets surface,
and is now stuck under a force field. He needs help
translating pictures and text to hopefully turn off the
lasers and force field, Zain has beamed Lacey into his life-
Stuck in an unknown environment, Lacey rises to the
challenges threatening her life in the form of "Bobzillas" -
Godzilla like creatures that look remarkably like her ex-
fiancee Bob. But what Lacey fights the most is the woman
within. After all, how can she fight the attraction that
has been UNLEASHED for an alien?
Ms Barry has a phenomenal ability weave a paranormal
packed romance that spans the universe. I am blown away
with her creativity. I was amazed at how the story plot
sucked me in as a reader and yet the bulk of UNLEASHED

As for our heroine, Lacey has had several rude
in the last couple years of her life. And while she was
already very likeable, it was amazing to watch her bloom

what a mortifying way to get kidnapped by an alien!
Zain, a man of mystery from UNEARTHED and UNCHAINED,
finally has his story told. Used to working by himself, he
has an ego (that gets him nowhere), but at the same time,
has the ability to recognize he needs help. The help he
gets is from a human, who seems worldly but has normal
fears that he takes the time to help Lacey through. It
melted my heart and I wasn't disappointed at all!
While the Bobzilla initially instilled fear in me, the
Lacey used them turned them into a major source of belly
laughs. I don't think I will ever think of Godzilla the
same thanks to Ms Barry!
So, if you haven't read a book by Ms Barry yet, I highly
recommend picking up this story. Lacey falls into the
category of a kick-butt and rescue her man heroine! (Note:
This is part of a series. Yes, you can read it alone
without any confusion. But, in the first two novels, he is
