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)
I don't usually like books without answers, the ending or arrogant/disrespectful male characters... But this book not only kept my undivided attention, but I also listened to it twice in a row. As of right now, this author is on auto download for me. I really hope the same narrator will continue with the series. I will look for other books narrated by Kathleen Godwin, she did an excellent job. I really think this book should be included in erotica section.
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
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.
A very interesting twist on "War of the Worlds." I found Korum to be a fascinating character and Mia to truly be naïve. Because Mia is so inexperienced, she does not think to ask questions that she should and it could have cost her a great deal. This story also shows what can go wrong when your "Allies" don't give you the whole truth about things.
There are many things that were left unexplained in this book, but that give me a reason to look forward to the next in this series. I do hope that Anna Zaires continues with Korum and Mia's story and more about the Krinar.
Avid reader and Audio books listener
The entire story..it was fresh and original
It is an erotic tale .. So if you are like reading erotica then you will enjoy this story
Enjoyed it so much, part 2 is out in print and I picked up a copy .. yet to read but can hardly wait
The narration was good, Ms. Godwin did a great job with both male and female voices. The storyline was plausible, for fantasy, and I liked the conflict the main character went through the love/hate dichotomy. Looking forward to book #2.
...it's for our own good.
It was mysterious, kept me guessing, and pretty freaking hot! Nice twist on a fantasy love story.
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.
This book was better than I expected. I was not sure what to expect from the whole alien theme but if you are a fan of paranormal romance you will enjoy this series. Great character building. I am definitely looking forward to the continuation of this series. Worth the credit!
I like sexy erotica with a good storyline. Fantasy or sci-fi or just something that captures my attention right away.
This is one of my all time favorite authors! Her stories never disappoint me! The Krinar Chronicles are the most uniquely written storylines I have ever read. The main male character is so arrogant and bold and over the following two books you see him turn almost human. The sensuality of the sex scenes is so intimate.....and incredibly illustrative. You cannot stop with the first book. This makes Shades of Gray boring!
A civil invasion, a 2000 year old alien, subterfuge, in a precarious situation, college student Mia finds herself torn between the resistance and a very powerful lover who pulls her into a world where there is no escape.I was kind of creeped out by the total roughshod approach of this K. The moral and personal dilemma Mia finds herself is in what drew me in. A definite favourite of what I have read so far this year, very pleased that Anne Zaire put pen to paper... loved the dark twisted under currents, the clever nano technology, world and premise and of course the very freaky tense relationship.... a must read for those who like tense, erotic, psychological thriller/science fiction.
