Hallie is going to use the Grab to win her freedom, to get off the planet and get to the colonies.  Unfortunately for her, Vicious spots her and decides she will be his.  Hallie almost makes it to the safe zone, but is caught and whisked away to her new home aboard a spaceship after being collared.

Grabbed by Vicious, the first book in the Grabbed series, has a slight twist on the space warrior gets mate theme.  The Harcos warriors are considered the most vicious men in their part of space.  Part of the cost of protecting some of the various planets is having a Grab, or roundup of women to become brides of these men. 

The marriage ceremony is basically collaring the woman the warrior has captured, signing some documents, and then having 30 days to bond.  Some of the customs are interesting, but I loved the fact that Vicious was willing to learn some of Hallie’s customs and willing to go through an actual marriage ceremony for her.

The chemistry between Vicious and Hallie is hot and I loved how patient Vicious was with Hallie.  After the first scene when he got her on ship, he realized he needed to change his plans and ease her into the BDSM lifestyle the Harcos practiced.  Hallie was willing to try and as they learned about each other, truly fell in love with each other.

There is the bad guy, as well as misunderstandings, to make their road to happiness rocky.  Some of Vicious’ friends are funny, but others had the power to hurt his military career.  The closeness, despite the ruthlessness of the military men, came across very well. 

Hints are tossed out about some of the other men participating in a future Grab.  I am looking forward to reading about Terror’s Grab in the future.  Those that like some sci-fi with light BDSM will like this one.
