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)
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.
I don't think so... too explicit for my taste.
The story would have been terrific, but the sex scenes were too much for my taste. Why can't we have a romantic encounter without the X-rated crap.
The story just seemed very poorly written... I didn't find any qualities to make it an enjoyable listen at all, could have used more depth/editing/intrigue.
Ill resume the New Species series by Laurann Dohner, "Moon", every book Ive listened to in the series has been captivating and credit-worthy.
The narrator was ok, didn't add or subtract from the poor overall much.
I'm partial to erotica, especially if it's got a good BDSM spin to it. But, if the blurb gets me, I'll listen!
Unfortunately, I would never recommend the audio to this book. The performance was just so bad. She's better off reading a meditation manual than these types of books. All the characters sound the same and was really distracting from the story.
I haven't read anything like this before. I am willing to read more of this genre. I really enjoyed the story and can't wait to read the other two.
If you can overcome the horrible performance, the story is really worth it. I'm going to skip the other audios and go straight to just reading the rest of the series. I really like this author and look forward to reading and possibly listening to other works, as long as it's not this narrator.
I did not know if I would like this story. I did enjoy it very much. I would recommend this book to anyone. Once I started it I could not stop listen to it until the end and I can not wait to start the next book in the series.
YES! Gosh, yes. It kept me spellbound and I couldn't stop listening to it! I finished it in just three days.
It's a bit like Anna Zaires's contemporary book Twist Me but a little less dark. It's also a little like Fifty Shades of Gray with it's "obssession" sort of romance which I really enjoy.
there were too many to count, but pretty much any time the hero and heroine interacted, i was really enjoying the book.
Yes, when the heroine Mia believes that her involvement in the human resistance moved resulting in thousands of soldiers getting killed when she was used as a pawn, but then she discovers the soldiers were knocked out, not killed. I was right there with her, panicking and wondering if they were dead and then so relieved to find out they hadn't died.
This was just a fantastic read and I can't wait to read the next two in the trilogy!
AT the top, easy to reread again and again.
the connection of characters and the author has knowledge of the subject matter.
I don't think I have. But she dose have a range to cover male and female voices
It let me feel
I am not into porn but I do like erotica with a good story line. This one delievers
IF I COULD GET A REFUND I WOULD! LISTENED TO 3 CHAPTERSS AD TURNED AWAY.
WAIST OF $
Obsessive. Compelling. Awesome.
Spoiler. When Mia and Korum talk after the attack. The calm before the storm was gripping.
I listening enhances the story. You can feel the turmoil, joy, or pace change not just read and imagine it.
He would have her no matter what!
I read this first and just loved how much listening to it deepened my love of this story.
I did not read the print. I am a big fan of audio books.
That's hard to say, but probably Korum.
I think it is decent but I was not always able to hear a clear distinction between her voice and the two main characters. However, out of the two books in this series that I have listened to, I believe her voice to be the better.
This book made me ecstatic because the concept is so out of this world so yes, I would say my reaction was extreme. I am currently listening to the second book. I downloaded it immediately after this one ended.
I feel like this book is Fifty Shades meets True Blood meets Independence Day. That's not to say it is a copy cat because it definitely is not. This is a very original story and the authors are quite imaginative.
