In the near future, the Krinar rule the Earth. An advanced race from another galaxy, they are still a mystery to us - and we are completely at their mercy.
Shy and innocent, Mia Stalis is a college student in New York City who has led a very normal life. Like most people, she's never had any interactions with the invaders - until one fateful day in the park changes everything. Having caught Korum's eye, she must now contend with a powerful, dangerously seductive Krinar who wants to possess her and will stop at nothing to make her his own.
How far would you go to regain your freedom? How much would you sacrifice to help your people? What choice will you make when you begin to fall for your enemy?

"If you're looking for some sexy summer reads, you'll want to check out the new book series, Krinar Chronicles. Author Anna Zaires brings you a kind of 50 Shades of Grey meets Star Trek tale . . ." (Marie Claire)
"For diehard fans of the paranormal romance genre, author Anna Zaires's risqué new book could be your next guilty pleasure. Zaires's most recent read, Close Liaisons, combines a love story with science fiction in the tale of Mia, an unassuming college student whose life gets suddenly entangled in a dangerous, otherworldly affair." (Woman's Day)
Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! Could not stop listening to it!
Love the interaction between Mia and Korum!. I just loved their chemistry. It reminded me of Christian and Anatesia.
First time listening to her. I really enjoyed listening to her.
Yes! I even listening it at work! LOL That is how much I could not stop listening to it. I can't wait for Close Obsession The Krinar Chronicles: Volume 2.
I loved it so much that I am recommending it to friends. I wonder how a movie would be like? hmmm
The story was good enough that I felt compelled to read the second book but there was way too much sex. It's not exciting if every chapter has a sex scene in my opinion. I also really didn't like the narrator. It was like listening to a computer read.
This story line was fun and I like the idea but the dialogue and character believability are off for me. The lead female character doesn't tell her best friend anything that's going on in her life.. and she doesn't trust the lead guy at all?? He has proven to be a wonderful man and she burns him over and over and then has mind blowing sex with the guy?? How does a woman fall in love with someone and open up her body completely for him and then immediately want to destroy him? It just made me not like her...
I really like the storyline. I'm an ancient aliens fan and this barks right up that alley. Makes you think about the possibility that a superior species co-habituating with humans and fixing our planet for the future. I love it! It's why I kept listening and why I will probably finish the series. I like where the author is going with the story I just hope the next book has better dialogue between the characters and better narration.
Uhg, there is nothing worse than a great story with bad narration!! She has little distinction between male and female voices. The only real difference is she makes the lead male sound like a robot (which doesn't fit his character description) and her intonation is absurd. Some performers can perform the story and some just read it... this one just reads it with ridiculous up and down, drawn out intonation like she is reading to 1st graders.
Hi My name is Rae and i love to read and also a very shy person.
I really love everything about this amazing book it had passionate and intense sex and romance I love this book.
I don't know I have never though of a awesome book like this.
Who els Korum and Mia
All of it I could not put it down when I was reading it
Just love this book and I'm happy or came with audio and I'm glad that Audible had it. Thanks :)
I've always been a avid reader so now I'm a avid listener. I prefer the paranormal genre but I do like to switch things up. It's boring if you don't have variety. Of course I do love the romance and the hotter the better. Also, you can't beat a good thriller filled with suspense and a ending you can't even guess at until the very end.
I like this one and I'm going to be on the lookout for more from this author. I listened to it in one sitting. Well worth my credit. Caution contains explict sexual content.
I am an avid reader, not a professional book reviewer. I gladly offer my opinion of the books I read/listen to.
I usually do not go for futuristic, sic-fi genre .... this book was the exception because it had so many accolades. It exceeded my expectations. There was a plot in addition to healthy libido's by H/H. I did find one minor transgression and that was attributing their chemistry and sexual relationship to love. I am just beginning book 2. Perhaps there will be a "bonding" process that will convince me that the relationship is actually more than physical attraction. Credit worthy, buy worthy, in my humble opinion.
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.
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 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...
