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.
A better story line would help.
Not a chance.
It wasn’t the narrator that was the issue as much as the story itself.
This was s a good book with a good story line and I will recommend it
Not good! Not good at all. Waste. Weak pathetic heroine. Green propaganda. Nonsense. Too bad. Idea with lots of potential.
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.
