    I hate to admit it. I really do. Shame on me but I liked this romance. I enjoyed it years ago and I still did on a reread.It was cheesy, had a fair amount of purple prose and a cat. A man-cat. A manly-man alpha cat. ~~~I read this series when it was first published (1990s). Even though I don't remember anything exciting with the first two stories -except #1 was a sort-of cliffhanger and you needed book 2-, this one stuck with me.The initial meeting between the H/h was insta-___. Let's just say 'insta' and normally I would have stopped reading it. But Gian Ren grows on you. Jenise? She's alright.Gian was a shape-shifter: a cat. Actually, a large cat and he had a personality to match. He was a rascal: playful, stubborn and loveably possessive. He purred and liked his fur hair stroked. Jenise was going to be forced into marriage with the villain of the story and needed help. Gian Red was a prisoner of her realm and she promised to release him if he helped her to escape. Little did she know that after the insta, the Cat Man had other plans.Besides the violaceous purply-prose and a weak confrontation with the creepy old scoundrel, this romance was just plain fun. ~~~Here kitty, kitty.........

    OK, I want a Gian Ren too! He's the king of all Familiars, beings who can take the form of both a cat and a human. Familiars are also intensely sensual and sexual (picture me fanning myself about now). Jenise needs to escape from her evil uncle who plans to wed her and become king by taking her virginity. When she hears he captured a familiar, she decides to rid herself of her virginity using the captive. Gian recognizes Jenise as his mate and refuses to leave her behind. This book was interesting and arousing to read. The growth of their relationship during their journey to Gian's homeland was realistic (or as realistic as sci-fi/fantasy gets). This book stands alone but be warned, you will likely end up wanting to buy the other books in this series to see where events here fit in the storyline!!

    Last week, I re-read all 3 of the Matrix books published by Dorchester. I haven't been able to read them for some time (I was one of those who got caught in the author's mismanagement of her self-publishing scheme years ago) but I used to love these three books. I was glad to revisit them and be reminded of how much I enjoyed the stories. They're They have sensuality, a sense of humor and fun, and were unique in their world building (even despite some of the derivative elements). It's a major shame we'll never know the stories of other characters like Dariq or Traed, or see the resolution of Rejar's story. I know many, many readers who've long enjoyed these stories.

    A man to make a woman purr in more ways than one…The whole premise of an otherwordly galaxy, of Familiars, Charls, and such were very interesting – the introduction of Gian Ren in the first chapter was sure to hook the reader head on. Case in point: “He tossed his hair back and viewed her through half-lowered eyes. The eyes of the ultimate pursuer. Secretive, disciplined, and sexual. His voice was a low, rumbling purr…”In fact, Gian unapologetically dominates the love story, with his obvious magnetism, good ‘ol gallantry, and contagious sense of humor. Jenise, although herself a bit strong-willed, still displayed moments of helplessness in the face of the Familiar’s sensual assault (it’s okay…we understand how you must have felt). The interaction between the two was definitely electric. Their lovemaking very passionate without being risqué. Though I enjoyed the story, I admit I was not quite satisfied with the whole anti-climactic feel to it. There were a lot of half-finished stories – what with the revenge of Karpon, the fate of the badly-injured Dariq, the menace of the Observer, and the destiny of Traed and Rejar. Sometimes the love story of Gian and Jenise took a backseat when the other characters’ stories had to be told in portions. And the ending part, after Gian’s Incarnation, felt a little hurried. There should have been more emotional weight given on the decisions Jenise had to take concerning accepting being queen of the Familiars, the choices Gian had had to make in taking her to M’yan. What it all boils down to, anyway, is that I’m now itching to have the rest of the series. Dara Joy certainly knows how to dangle a story and make her reader clamor for more. Despite some reservations, this was an entertaining read.

    So this is the best of the three IMHO. I don't know why Dara Joy insists on creating such asshole heroes... Gian Ren didn't quite make the title of asshole, as her previous two Heroes did, but comes close on occassion. In one respect, he's funny and loving and very protective of her. He can be a genuinely charming Hero. But in another he lies to her and he manipulates her into doing things she doesn't want to do. He feels though everything he does with her has an ulterior get her to stay with him. And she's overly stubborn. Half the time she's outright annoying because she keeps insisting she needs to get away from him and be on her own.I get that she wants her freedom and isn't ready to be tied down, but she fights it overly long too. And nothing pisses me off in a book more than when a Hero is in the wrong (and let's face it, he is - he's forcing her to stay and he lied to her) and doesn't have to grovel or apologize for it. Just because he's Gian Ren and he's charming and sexy and arrogant is no excuse for it. So I didn't like that. But the on the run romance was very exciting and I enjoyed the book as a whole. There were just certain aspects that I didn't appreciate so much. Mostly though it was really great to finally learn some of the secrets of the Familiars.

    3-1/2 star rating, really.I didn't get from the summary that this was a mystical story; I'm not usually drawn to those as such. But I enjoyed this very much. On the positive side, the characters were intriguing. They, especially Gian, could have come off as cartoonish, but the author used a very light hand, and the elements of the story that could have come off as annoying, such as Familiars such as Gian being so sensory-based, worked here.For the most part.I could buy that his senses and his ability to give to the senses of others were heightened. Fair enough. Some readers may be put off by Gian's possessive side and especially that he didn't tell Jenise he had mated with her permanently, which seems to be the Familiar answer to marriage. The author tries to balance his deception with Jenise's own, at the onset, with her using him to rid herself of her maidenhood in order to save her kingdom from her evil step-father.Okay, the evil, one-dimensional step-father can be excused, I guess, because this story definitely appears out of the mist of fairytales. But a bit more motivation behind him or something to round his character better, rather than just the pursuit of power would have made for a more interesting character - and strengthened her motivations in trying to bargain with Gian for sex.And I did like how the whole story had a sort of a hazy, misty quality to it, as if it was from some place far, far away. Nice voice. Also, nice pace - never dragged. The author made honest attempts to have Jenise strong and yet very feminine. Kudos to that.I have to say the ending was very weak with no real climax, even given their "Incarnation sex." That could have been much better - if there had been any reason to think one of them might actually die. While that was mentioned once, that it could be dangerous for one or both them, there was no hint of that during the actual scene. No danger. No threat. Not even internal - pardon the pun. And there were obvious dodges into the next or previous books (I've not read), too obvious for my blood. Yes, Traed was interesting, but the overt "read the next book" thing irks me.But sex does play a huge part in this book - without excuses. That said, the sex is caring, loving and romantic without being too graphic. It also had that gentle touch and worked because of the author's interesting set up of Gian's character. I liked that and enjoyed those scenes. I also enjoyed the descriptions of the other worlds - that was interesting. But Jenise's blind stupidity in not realizing she'd end up staying with Gian grew annoying. So she wanted to wander - her motivation to do so, in the face of the obvious danger she'd be in - was not compelling enough. She came off as sounding childishly naive to the point of stupid at times.I'm looking for more from this author. This book was a great escape.

    I love this !!!!!!!!!!!!! This is the fourth romance I read way back when I was a teenager in mid 2004.This romance is for anyone for loves cats or fantasy novels. This is quite a long novel and it is worth reading. I visited this book in Feb and the review is long overdue. This book broke a fewrules for its time, although it atill followed many of the tropes. This book came out in 1998. My romance reading friends , do you all remember how the novels were back then? Of course a virgin and an alpha male are paired in this book. Of course, the hero is really sweet and lovely while being an ass sometimes. The world building is very interesting and grandoise sometimes. Ok I will let you in on one fact that might get you interested :All my romance readers, the hero, Gian, has an expandable penis!HAppy reading!

    Whew! Okay. This book is actually listed inside the books, as the 2nd book in the series. I read it out of sequence by mistake, but was still able to follow the story.I can't believe I never heard of these books before.. This one is a very sensual, erotic, romantic, & suspenseful story. Which has an interesting and refreshing take on shifters and their world. It has a bit of a futuristic/sci-fi tone, but not too much. I really liked this one. And all of the characters were well written. It is a short novel, but there is so much story within, that you will not feel as though something is missing. I highly recommend this read. I am starting book 1 "Knight of a Trillion Stars" and then will be moving on to book 3 "Rejar" His story I am very eager to read.

When one of them is captured to be used and then sold for slavery, an unlikely match is made. He escapes with the young princess traveling across world and facing many dangers, while trying to teach her enjoyment.A fun, enjoyable read that is sure to bring pleasure and tingles to the body.

    The third book in the Matrix of Destiny series by Dara Joy. Gian Ren is captured, drugged and chained to a wall. When Jenise is confronted by her stepfather's brother, Karpon, she knows she needs to escape. So she foils Karpon's diabolical plan and helps Gian Ren escape and escapes with him. Another fun, humorous, and entertaining addition to the series. There were a few unanswered questions regarding other characters at the end but I still liked it.

    [My voting might be biased as I have not read the first two book in this series. So my vote is based entirely on how I felt from reading this book. I know that some of my rantings might be answered if I read the first two book (or not??)]I like the world building with the ideas of portals and different dimensions/planets being connected through portals was interesting and I had enjoyed the visual writing on different worlds. The main character’s POV and sub characters POV were all enjoyable to read. What I did not like was the vagueness of things like how Gian Ren was held captive and why was Jenise was so obsessed with Frensi Freedom. There was no past recap that might show us why she was intent on being free or what her parents relationship was. Why was she the one in line for the throne yet claiming that the rightful owner was supposed to be Karpon. The constant switching to other characters POV was tiring and confusing at times. There was a POV from an old lady saving a guy that was about to die that was never mentioned again [In my opinion the story could still go on without this]. The ambiguity of how this story was written were tiring as the problem was never solved. I get that it is some foreshadowing in order to get us interested in the next book but it was just too much for me. I do not understand why they didn’t fight Karapon in this book when Karapon is just a pawn to the bigger picture. It would had been much better if the story focused on Gian Ren and Jenise’s POV and actually take some action and solving to save the people from Kapron. This way the story would have moved much faster.Jenise was written that she had a kind heart and there were instances that it was shown but for the most part she was pretty much dependent which is understandable as she was a princess but I am not entirely sure if she was smart due to her actions. I really didn’t feel like she was a princess with how she easily discarded her people especially knowing Karpon’s character. I find her selfish and bratty at times. Gian Ren was sweet and him being King was a surprise. I don’t think he was a jerk with how he tried to save her even though he manipulated her into coming with him. He was very caring and protective of Jenise. Still, I wonder about his duty as a king for the monarchy in the story was vague. I know what was written but he didn’t felt like a king to me. Unless the whole point of being king was just about warfare doing combats in protecting all familiars from threat that he goes freely alone. Still, the story was still enjoyable for the most part. I would recommend that they read the first two book.[but after reading the synopsis of the first two book I am not entirely sure of the world building anymore]

    3.5 stars. Ok, the explanation behind the cover is this: our h's mother's consort has died, his brother wants the crown. However, apparently the people like the h better so he's decided he must remove the competition. Since she must be a maiden in order to take the crown (that she does not want), he figures by siccing a Familiar on her, he can have her discredited *and* keep her as his ho. There's only a few issues with this. 1) the H isn't just *any* familiar; he's the KING of familiars so the drug is wearing off rapidly and 2)the genius monologues. The h, being somewhat intelligent, takes the initiative and goes to the chained H.Alrighty then. At this point I must say, ordinarily when a H consciously makes the h his wife (am somewhat ambivalent with mates) without her knowledge, I get really angry. However, when the h commits the boneheaded maneuver of bargaining with said H and leaving herself open, I don't feel a whole lot of sympathy for her. So our h's getting all ticked off when she found out everything meets with a distinct lack of sympathy. He did try to talk her out of it (the deflowering anyway, though somehow I doubt he would have done one without the other), she insisted, therefore...she has no grounds for complaint. As for her upset at discovering he was king...ok, perhaps he should have told her, but with her constantly voicing plans to separate...Series complaint. Ok, she introduced Traed in the last book, introduced a young familiar in this book, there are two ebooks? or something...about some random other Familiars. Leaving characters twisting in the wind is not a good way to make people buy your books.

    This is the first one I read in this series or by this author and I don't think it suffered much the first 1/2 from a lack of knowledge. The second 1/2, all the characters seem to be explained pretty well. I liked the support characters quite a bit and realized that there were some set up for future books with some of the support characters, only,... she stopped writing the series for over 10 years and the new books aren't about those characters I came to like. So Janise is afraid of any commitment to a man because all her life has been manipulated by the horrible men around her. Because of this you can understand her reluctance to mate but... she also is constantly mooning over and say how attached to Gian that she is, it is contradictory. And this is what brings the story line down for me. How much she fights the connection to the wonderful man and situation in the end. Gian, well, he should have come forward a lot quicker and that grates. They have some very sexy interludes and a touching last one. So the sexy times was quite good along with their final connection. The over arching plot was not answered but the side characters paths and finding their ways was. So the back plot was both good and not so good in the end. It is a mix for how well I liked it. I probably will try reading the other 2 in the trilogy at some point, so it was good enough. I had this on my All About Romance top 100 list but don't know what year it was there. I wouldn't put it on a top 100 romance list but I can see some loving it.

    Again, I must confess I started this series with the third book. I really don't know what is with me. I seem to always pick up the third book first. I also must add that this was one of the very first romance novels I ever read, which is why I decided to reread the series.Gian Ren is H-O-T! Yup, that pretty much sums him up. He is a king amongst the familiars, beings that can take the form of a cat and who are extremely sensual. He has been captured, drugged, and is hanging by chains in a nasty dungeon. Jenise learns that a powerful man from another realm is being held prisoner. She is desperate to escape her step-uncle, who plans on marrying her and, by taking her virginity, becoming king. So, she sneaks down to the dungeon and her jaw hits the floor when she spies Gian Ren. She puts her plan into action. She needs to rid herself of her virginity to stop Karpon from taking the throne. However, Gian Ren recognizes her as his one and only mate and he refuses to leave her behind while he escapes.Their perilous adventure of escaping from her world and avoiding the soldiers that her uncle sends after them. This book has a strong tone of sci-fi and much for futuristic that the past books within the series, however, it isn't over powering and the romance is solid.I highly recommend readers give this series a try.

    When you've read many novel, only few sticks to your memory. For me, this is one of the few. (Actually matrix of destiny series sticks to my memory. Simply because, they are science fiction romance that doesn't lose their romance taste). I've just read it the second time, and now it is branded to my brain.We have Gian Ren, a cat shapeshifter, a Familiar. Which is unusual. And Jenise, a Frein. (Thank God, both have human form) Due to circumstance, they stick together to flee from evil plan. At first, we know Jenise is a Princess, but it doesn't get enough highlight I think. But I like how Gian Ren identity is revealed at the end. We suspect he is powerful, from the numerous time his role as Guardian of Mist mentioned. But we have no idea until it's revealed toward the end. Basically those 2 are matched.One thing I respect from Dara Joy is, she's consistent. Both with the character and the plot. There's no over-the-top-drama. Everything as it should be. The circumstances she created truly out of the box. And the way the story unfurled is a smart solution. The way she define Gian Ren, for example. He stays true to his character trough the whole story. I can imagine my cat when I read his part

    Great addition to the Matrix of Destiny series. Parts of the book will make more sense if you have read the first two books in the series, but there is a stand-alone story that is well told. Familiar Gian is rescued from the evil Karpon by Jenise after he agrees to an unorthodox bargain. In exchange for his release, he is to take her virginity. What familiar would turn down that arrangement? It quickly becomes more than a simple de-flowering when feelings and instinct become involved. With Karpon on their tail, they must run through danger and through several worlds until they arrive at their Destiny.The story is told in a manner that is both humorous and sensuous at the same time. There is action, adventure, and romance. You will re-meet several characters from Knight of Trillion Stars and Rejar continuing the 'Destiny' storyline, which will make you want to keep reading the series. I listened to the audiobook which was well done.

    I really enjoyed this book. I really loved the characters and the premise. This is the 3rd book in a multiple book series. I need to get the other books in the series.Even though this was the middle book in a series it could be a stand alone. There were just a very few characters that were mentioned from prior books and I want to read the rest of the books.Gian Ren is the King of the Familiars. He has been captured in a foreign land and chained in a dungeon. Jenise is the throne princess of Ganakari. Jenise is in need of a savior. She doesn't want the throne, she wants her freedom. She makes a bargain with Gian. He must take her virginity and she will help him to escape. Gian agrees to her proposition. The fur flies when Jenise realizes that Gian has started the mating ritual of his people with her without telling her what he is saying to her.Gian and Jenise were a delight to read and I hope the rest of the series is just as good.

    I really enjoyed this book and the author's imagination is fantastic! I thought it would be silly because of too much going on - an alien and a cat shifter - but it worked. Gian is a Familiar who finds himself captured on the planet of Ganicari. Jenise is a free-spirited Frensi who is horrified that her stepfather's brother is planning to marry her in order to have control of their planet. She strikes a deal with Gian - take her virginity and get her away from the planet and she'll help him escape. The journey across various planets is fantastical, and their sex is hot, hot, hot! There is more going on in Gian's home galaxy and it is all so interesting. Although this is not the first book in the series, it's the first one I read. I don't feel like I was missing anything, although I do want to go back and start from the beginning. I'm not usually a fan of sci-fi, but this was terrific!

    I'm not a huge science fiction reader but I did enjoy Mine to Take, or shall I say I enjoyed Gian Ren?! He is absolutely yummy! Alien or not! Jenise is LUCKY! The remaining characters, Jenise, Traed, Yaniff, Rejar, Krue and Karpon were all interesting in their own right. I even liked the alien Gruntel! Can't say he was cute, but his gestures were cute. It takes a bit to get into this kind of story, but the age old act of finding one's mate translates in any genre. There were a lot of good quotes in this book that are true in any world. I may have to go back and read books 1 and 2 and see what unfolded before I came across this free Amazon read. Enjoyable read although really different from my usual paranormal reads. Good way to start 2015!

    1st Sci-Fi world to me, its kind of unique experience traveling to other planet, a planet like in "Total Recall" movie by Arnold Schwarzenegger mixed with Avatar's Planet. The premise seems promising at the beginning, but not strong enough for me to continue till the end... **Spoilers** This 'on-the-run' romance will be much much better if more action from Karpon's army, and more dangerous side that confront during their run. It will be much more excited, imo. Several love-scenes are hot, but a bit disappointed because I can't get it why Janise keep denying and always want to be apart or free from Gian. He is so lovely, caring, sexy and so on...Maybe its her nature?***Enough from Dara Joy, let me find out more sci-fi from the other authors.

    synopsis:gian ren has been sent on a rescue mission to a different world and is captured by an evil warlord who has taken over his land illegaly. jenise is trying to make herself undesirable to the evil warlord, so she makes a propostion to gian: she will free him if he takes her virginity. because his species are legendary lovers and she feels as though that will do the job. gian has no intention of letting jenise go, for he recognizes his mate. through trials and tribulations and alien copulations, gian and jenise get to know and care for one another.what i liked: the world building was interesting.what i didn't like: the over the top ridiculousness of it all and how a virgin could stand up to the legendary lovin' with the legendary love tool.

    I'm a bit disappointed. While this book was better than book 2 (Rejar), neither were as engaging as book 1. The book was enjoyable, it was just easy to put down. I liked Gian Ren. His character was very well developed, the plot interesting. His female counterpart though I felt was a little flat. I never really cared for her or knew anything about her other than she sought "freedom". But she never really even clarified what exactly she meant by that. I could have done without the Frensi dance deal at the end. It was a complete throw in and added nothing to the story. Still, not a bad read, I just expected more since I enjoyed the first in the series so well.

    Jenise is trying to escape from her uncle, who wants to mate and marry her so he can control her property. She escapes by rescuing Gain, (familiar cat shifter), giving him her maidenhead and transporting to a different planet. They have grand adventure trying to get to Gian's home. There are breaks from their adventure, where Rejar is revisited and his studies are explained. Gain was fun, he was flirty, brave and liked pleasing Jenise. Jenise was ok, she was afraid of commitment and didn't let others control her fate. It was a easy, adventurous romp with strange creatures and locations.

    3.5 stars. This was a great quick read. It was nothing like I expected and was pleasantly surprised at the depth of the story and setting. Much more than just a erotic romance novel.Yes ladies, it has some hot and steamy sex scenes, but let’s be honest….after Fifty Shades of Grey every sex scene I read now just seems tame by comparison. Though I doubt readers will be disappointed in this novel :). See my full review here

    I truly enjoyed this book. Dara Joy did a wonderful job describing and showing the reader Gian Ren's personality as well as Jensie. I really liked her series Matrix of Destiny but I have to admit this is my favorite out of the four she wrote. The only SMALL and UNIMPORTANT concern I had about this book was that it shadowed Rejar's problems and to be honest, I didn't really care for Rejar's story. I also didn't like the fact that Gian Ren's child would not be king. Its great that Jensie and Gian Ren get to be together but at the same time, it's sad.

    If you ignore the unbearably stupid scenes with a Merlin clone & light sabers, this book is quite unique and entertaining. In order for a princess to avoid being married to her heinous stepfather, she decides to shed herself of her virginity by making a bargain with a captured part-feline being. In exchange for deflowering her as quickly as possible, she will let him free. What she doesn't count on is him kidnapping her to make sure his escape is total. It is a truly strange story with an unusual courtship, which is why I can forgive its easy-to-skim trite chapters

    This is a good story with engaging characters. I liked the way Gian and Jenise meshed so well together. Even though Jenise had misconceptions about what freedom really is, I liked that she didn't just try to bolt away from Gian (well, except for that one time) and that she was open to learning that she could be free and still mated to Gian.Also enjoyed seeing so much of the characters from other books: Lorgan, Rejar and Yaniff (I was even okay with seeing Deanna/Adeanna again and she was not my favorite character by any stretch of the imagination).Good story and well told.
