Publisher's Summary

A dark and edgy romance that will appeal to fans of erotic and turbulent relationships....

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?

WARNING: This book contains strong sexual content and explicit language and is not suitable for listeners under 18.

What the Critics Say

"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)

    "Brillante!"
    Where does Close Liaisons rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Loved it! Loved it! Loved it! Could not stop listening to it!


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Love the interaction between Mia and Korum!. I just loved their chemistry. It reminded me of Christian and Anatesia.


    Have you listened to any of Kathleen Godwin’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    First time listening to her. I really enjoyed listening to her.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    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.


    Any additional comments?

    I loved it so much that I am recommending it to friends. I wonder how a movie would be like? hmmm

    "I'm not sure..."
    What did you like about this audiobook?

    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...


    How has the book increased your interest in the subject matter?

    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.


    What did you find wrong about the narrator's performance?

    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.

    "Pretty good story, narration could use some work.."

    I really got into this story. I usually don't do Alien romance because it is never done right...but this was done pretty good. I read all the reviews and I am glad I didn't past this one up. The narration was well... after like chapter 2 you just kinda fall into it. You just don't notice the same female voices and the same male voices. I liked it actually. I really did. Maybe book 2 which is due to come out in August will have another narrator...but I if not, I think I will still pre-order. This was simple a great listen. Nothing spectacular...but a great story none the less. I really want to know what Korum is gonna do, after he got all betrayed on! LOL.... Plus I really want to see what the Alien compound is like... Book 2.. is definitely on pre-order lock down..

    Good credit. Save your money...It wasn't that great due to narration...but great great credit.

    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.

    "IT TOOK CONTROL OVER ME & I LOVED LOVED LOVED IT"

    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.

    "Bravo!! What a talented, brilliant author!"

    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 whole team should change to childrens books."

    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.
