I was skeptical to buy this one because the alien/sci-fi species wasn't really my type of book, but decided to go for because I had some credits built up.
I was very surprised when I started listening - I got interested very fast and enjoyed the story.
The narrator could have given more pause between each character, but I got over that eventually.
The male is definitely domineering and in real life, would be a totally unhealthy relationship. But let's all face the facts, in our romance books, we like a little domineering in our men! I found the book very sexy with the exception of Mia and how childish she was at points. I connected with some things she felt as I am similar to her description of being a petite brunette woman, but her reactions were a bit annoying.
If you have the credits and don't mind risking 1 - I say go for it and check it out! It's sexy enough to keep you interested for most of it. I think the last hour is when I chimed out and really already knew the outcome.
Worth a shot...
Hot romance/Sci Fi we're so lucky to have Audible to feed our book addictions. I love walking my precious dog Sydney & listening to my books
Loved this book. Great to listen to something different. Lot's of Hot Alien and sex. A Very fun and yummy read. :)
This is a must listen to for any PNR lover - it's got sooo many GREATS in it - great world-building, great action, a great amount of great sex scenes, great characters, great suspense and all written by a truly great and gifted author.
Earth has been taken over by the Krinar's aliens who try to live alongside the humans but when Mia (a 21 yr old naive virgin who's still at Uni) suddenly sets eyes on an alien in the park called Korum (a handsome, sexy, intelligent billionaire) it was a close encounter she's going to both come to love and regret. Korum doesn't take no for an answer from her and wants to possess her mind, body and soul and brutishly gets his wish but Mia is fighting for her independence (amongst other things) and has a few surprises for him too. But you just can't help liking both these main characters.
This is a WOW, OH NO, YES YES YES, DON'T DO IT, WOOO HOOO, WHOA, PHEW, MMMM DELISH, RUN, ARGHH, AHHHHH, and a big SIGH when their tumultuous romance concludes and I desperately went straight on to book 2 because I can't wait to see what's coming next.
Worth a credit? I downloaded the whole trilogy and I would have gladly used more credits up to listen to this awesome, fantastic and brilliant series which blew me away..... so that's a YES.
A new narrator would make a huge difference. I liked the story but the narrator almost put me to sleep.
Remember when listening the protagonist is an introvert, sheltered, young (early 20s), and a virgin, so she's an innocent idiot. Well meaning one though, and I applaud the innocence she was written with. Once you get past that, it's a fun sci-fi concept, with really well written and fairly realistic sex scenes. I don't recommend it to people who have issues with weak female leads, possessive and/or domineering male leads, or getting to the hot steamy parts quickly. Mmmm, hot and steamy...I do recommend if if you're looking for a roll in the hay with a hot alien. Me-ow! I will be getting the next in the series. Then ending gave me the warm fuzzies.
I don't think so... too explicit for my taste.
The story would have been terrific, but the sex scenes were too much for my taste. Why can't we have a romantic encounter without the X-rated crap.
I could not imagine anyone liking this book and to think it is a series to boot.
The writing was done by a amatuer. Absolutely.
Yes - the lack of writing skill should not be a reflection of her performance. She probably didn't like the story any more than I did.
Anger. I wasted a credit.
the story is ok but no depth. I believe the team of anna zaires and dima zales would make good young adult authors and the narrator is not engaged in the emotions of the characters.
First in a series of three fantasy books about a human-alien love affair. Lots of sex scenes, so tender ears, beware.
I don't read a lot of sci-fi/fantasy, but this series had great reviews, so I decided to try it.
Male character is a bit one dimensional, more of a cipher than a fully realized character. However, the male character is revealed in more depth, in later books.
I can not believe all the 4 and 5 star reviews this book received...This by far is one of the worse romance story I have listened to on audible thus far. MINUS the graphic sex scenes this book is written for a younger audience...Oh say per-teen age. The main character is annoyingly childish and the narrator is horrid. My suggestion is to take your credit and use it on a more worth while author with better narrators such as Kresley Cole (Immortals After Dark) and/or Laurann Dohner (Cryborg Seductions). This is just my 2 cent!
