same old same old... 50 shades of alien. it was a good concept I wish there was a bit more to the story line that didn't seem so cheesy at times and so much like other stories at the same time. good read but not one id likely reread like I do so many others.
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.
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.
