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)

    "One of the worst books I've listened too!"
    Any additional comments?

    Wow...I thought the premises was fun....alien/human love affair, but wow, its about the most unromantic thing I've ever heard. The male lead is a controlling, abusive, psychopath with no redeeming qualities at all. The "Happy ever after" is the woman excepting that despite the fact that her oppressive,"lover" has EVERY warning sign of a major domestic abuser, she is just overreacting and should try to accept her fate as his captive and sex slave. How is this romantic? Its really kind of sick. And don't get me started on the fact that author uses words like "penis" and "vagina" when describing sex scences.......is this a medical report or erotica?
    This was just bad; bad writing, bad narrating (she sounds WAY to straight laced for erotica), and bad characters....in the end I was hoping Mia would kill her lover! Or herself. I'm sure that's not what the author was trying to convey. Too bad, this could have been a good book.

    "Painfully hard to finish!!"

    I liked it ok in the beginning then it just got worse and worse. Some of it was interesting, It might have been better if the reader wasn't so horrible, but not much. The author is clearly the president of PETA and It did feel very preachy at times.

    "Just Awful"
    Would you try another book from Anna Zaires and/or Kathleen Godwin?

    No


    Would you ever listen to anything by Anna Zaires again?

    No


    What didn’t you like about Kathleen Godwin’s performance?

    The tempo and mood were wrong. It was just hokey.


    Any additional comments?

    I read a lot of sci fi, sci fi romance and romance and having an alien immortal vampire take you as a sex slave was just SO ridiculous I couldn't finish this book. I can usually suspend belief with an alien but to make it a vampire was just too much.

    "Dont waste your credit...."

    The narration made it unreadable. I listen to a lot of books so I am a bit of a narrator snob and to me the tempo and the way in which the narrator read this book just made it difficult to listen to story.
