Life on Earth ended as Callie O'Doyle knew it six months earlier when aliens invaded much of the planet, including the quiet harbor town where she lives. As she walks home late one night from work, she comes face to face with an alien in a spacecraft who injects something into her arm. When she wakes, she's no longer on Earth, and the male alien has brought her to his home.
Although Jakara is physically appealing and doesn't mistreat her, it's also clear he's taken her prisoner, and he gives her no choice but to submit. The longer Callie gives her body to this mysterious man, the more quickly her heart follows.
But as their feelings for each other grow, so does the danger they're in. Jakara broke all the rules when he took Callie for his own, and if she's found, it will mean their death.

KIDNAPPED BY A WARRIOR introduces us to Callie O'Doyle, a young woman on her own, looking for a job in a world turned upside down by an alien invasion. In the span of a page or two, we learn much about what's happened, her background and the general sentiment of the people. Not soon after, we meet Jakara, the Special Retrieval Commander sent to retrieve Callie but instead of taking her to the holding center, he brings her to his home. As their relationship develops, with some enjoyable sex scenes, we learn that despite being from different worlds, they are of similar mindset.
Overall, the storytelling is okay. There were some scenes that were well done while others seemed a bit flat and I had a really hard time believing that given an alien invasion in cities, where many areas were destroyed and there was limited utilities, that people would still be working to cover their bills or that a woman would be opening a gallery. That didn't come across as believable to me.
I liked the interactions between the different characters. Admittedly, I would have liked Callie more if she didn't come across as so weak, as I tend to enjoy stronger female characters. Although I did find that when she was talking about things that she's passionate about (avoiding spoilers), she came across as a much stronger character, I only wish that Ravenna Tate kept it up.
Overall, this is a fun read and if you enjoy stories with an other world element, this is definitely that. But if you like stories where the differences between the species are much more defined, then this might not be the best story for you, given the similarities of the species (characters).
