I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
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.
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 female character and the narrator....
Not too sure if I will listen to any more books from the author. I stop listing to this one by chapter 7 because of number of reasons, 1st the narrator, 2nd the female character came across weak and clueless, 3rd I couldn't understand how a 2000 years old guy was even attracted to her. For example, she tried to put him off by herself stink with sweat, ate garlic and onion, than she gets drunk and made out with him. The next day, she doesn't bother to take a shower or brush her teeth, but at least she decides to chew on gum and walk over to his place (I thinking by than she smelled even more sweaty) and has sex with him. Absolutely revolting, I thought she was disgusting. From that point on I just could not get into it. The narrator did not help either!!
Not again, she made the book sound boring, and I kept falling asleep. There was no excitement, enthusiasm or much emotion in her tone. Completely, annoying. That I could not decide it was the book that I dislike or the narrator. I guess, it was the narrator that made me dislike the book so much… completely annoying!!!!
Yes - not eat garlic and onion before a date!!
Waist of my money!!!
A new narrator would make a huge difference. I liked the story but the narrator almost put me to sleep.
The narrator had a pleasant voice, not fast or flat. But most times I couldn't tell if she was speaking for the characters or just telling the story.
On the other hand, the story had potential but did not live up to it. If the reader/listener is okay with stories where the main female character is weak and pretty much agrees with everyone and follows their advice and orders without really thinking for herself and the male character has all the power and tells the main female character what to do and she does with what only can be called "token" protestation (and yes, I know this is a run on sentence. I am making a point.), this might be a book they want to listen to. For me,...no.
The title was not the basic, generalized concept that you are use to. It was diverse, informative and imaginative. So much so that it is as if you are actually there. It was not just diluted sex, but two entities falling in love and testing that love. The action provided in between and the storyline had me captivated, so much so that the title was completed within a few hours.
Emily and Korum.
Though I believe she was too much of a submissive, she never truly did put up much of a fight where Korum was concerned. Korum for his passion to forgive and his brilliance
I cried and yes, I laughed as well, got a few people looking at me like I was crazy. But how Could I not ? When I was reading something this beautiful.
Although Korum got on my last nerves with his autocratic behavior toward the shy and innocent Mia, I really found myself enjoying the banter between a naive 21 year old and the alien who was thousands of years old.
Near the end of the book when Mia realizes she is falling for Korum and is still not willing or interested in being his pampered sex toy. She makes some stupid mistakes in handling a "man" who clearly had vast years of experiences behind him to think she could pull the wool over his eyes.
Korum was an arrogant, arbitrary and capricious man/alien, but he's swag so I can't wait to read the next book. He also outlined some concepts regarding Earthling behavior that was nothing but true.
Korum gives Mia a choice that could win her freedom from him, her actions were not unexpected.
A great start to a really engaging series, Anna Zaires is talented and smart for collaborating with good editors and her husband on the details of the book.
Wow, so I've been expanding my normal romance genre and glad I did. This is a really great listen. Very much worth a credit. Our handsome K you want to hate because of his dominant attitude (but that's also kinda what I like) he's persistent in his pursuit of Mia she doesn't want him. Because he is a K and her feelings get jumbled because in the beginning all she wants is to run away but hey sometimes curiosity can pull you in. The plot thickens when she's approached by the human resistance and asked to spy on him. Will she or won't she? It's a roller coaster ride of emotions a lot of hot yumminess and I can't wait for the next one.
Any book that has a strong female character that is both snarky and funny.
A better story line would help.
Not a chance.
It wasn’t the narrator that was the issue as much as the story itself.
