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...
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.
Great love story.
Only the rich have the option to eat the food that is denied to the masses. This is what would happen if the government got complete control. They would have the very things denied to us, or at least the rich elite would. In this particular story it was a certain kind of food source the Krinar could afford that most humans could not. If the author was trying to make a statement about animal food sources and its effect upon the environment, she did, but she also proved what would happen if the govt. stepped in to stop the access to animal food sources. We would starve while the elite would feast with cute little 20 year girls.
Liked them all.
Too long for that.
Interesting story idea.
love to read!
Loved the combination of hot romance and sci-fi. The alien technology fascinated me. I want that technology now! I have listened to this audio so many times.
I laughed so hard when she was asked , " has all that alcohol you drank fucked with your brain. "
I was interested in trying a new setting and author and was disappointed in the narration of this book.
Definitely a new narrator/actor: performance was entirely robotic and the cadence was flawed to the point of losing complete interest in the story.
Angry that I wasted a credit on such a poor performance, disappointed and surprised that it made it to audio publishing.
