My name is Zoe McKinley. I have a boring life, an awful job, and a boss who throws staplers at my head. What could be worse?
How about being abducted by aliens?
Being dragged through a mirror, naked and screaming, onto an extraterrestrial ship was bad. Finding out I had been sold to a huge alien male who looks like the devil was worse. But learning he wanted to trade me to an intergalactic petting zoo was the worst of all!
Now I'm whizzing through the galaxy with a robot butler, a trio of nib-nibs (they're like tiny green monkeys), and one huge, muscular, and very grumpy alien. The clothing they gave me shows all my lady bits, the food-sim makes banana cream pie that tastes like sauerkraut, and Sarden, my captor, is too hot to stay mad at, even if he is a jerk.
In fact I think I might be falling for him.
What's a girl to do? It's all in a day's work when you've been...Abducted.

I absolutely LOVE Evangeline Anderson's wild crazy imagination! Each story she writes is amazing, and her world building is some of the BEST in Sci-Fi romances! I thought I loved listening to the Brides of Kindred, but Abducted, the first book in the Alien Mate Index series had me laughing out loud. It was the perfect blend of erotic, suspense, action, and lot's of snarky humor.
May Contain Spoilers,
If you're ever abducted by aliens, don't forget Reverse Stockholm Syndrome...... you just might need it! At least, it worked for Zoe (kinda of) when she was abducted, and sold to Sarden, a huge, red skinned, horned alien. Out of all the women on earth, Zoe can't believe Sarden would have chosen her, after all, she's not exactly thin super model material. She's a BBW with red hair, fair skin, and freckles, but what really makes her so special is she is consider an elite female, and a Pure One with a hidden talent to boot. The Pure One's are among the descendants who were seeded by the Ancient Ones long ago. After the Ancient Ones seeded earth, earth was considered off limits, and never breached by aliens until recently. Zoe's not buying any of this Pure One with talents, but when Sarden touches Zoe, she can't deny the zing that runs through her body. Sarden does't plan on keeping Zoe for himself, he needs to sell Zoe to Tazaxx in hopes of getting his sister back. As Sarden takes Zoe away from earth, she devises her Reverse Stockholm Syndrome plan to appeal to Sarden in hopes he will change his mind, and return her to earth.
Sarden may be huge with horns, and red skin, but he isn't evil. He actually has a heart, and allows Zoe to roam freely around his spaceship, that is until she starts making trouble. She just can't help herself, and as she slowly realizes there may be some truth to her having a special gift, she finds herself in one deadly situation after another with some comical or steamy results. The more time Sarden, and Zoe spend together, the steamier it gets! They start developing feelings for each other, and as they get closer to their destination, Sarden knows he can no longer go through with selling Zoe to free his sister. They start working as a team, and come up with a plan to get his sister back.
The narrators did an AWESOME job! I loved how Mackenzie delivered all of Zoe's snarky dialogue, and William has a great voice, very pleasant to listen too. These narrators really brought this story to life.
Abducted was hilarious, fun and entertaining. If you're a fan of Michelle Howard, S.E. Smith, or M. K. Eidem, you'll definitely want to consider this audio. It's a well written story with amazing world building. Not to mention, Anderson does a fantastic job melding erotic sensual scenes, with an action packed plot. I loved it, and it's well worth the $10 I spent! I'm really looking forward to the next audio in the series.
Yes I would because I love all Evangeline Anderson books and the story was really well developed.
The characters development but I will say the female leads character was frustrating but she always out herself in jeopardy or just did really dumb things that would get her in a bind that could easily be avoided.
Probably when the character pretends to be a slave, theirs a really hilarious scene that had me screaming with laughter because it was so shocking lol.
It made me laugh for sure and made me frustrated because of the stupid straps the female lead fell for.
I enjoyed this book, I'm new to the sci-fi romance. I've only listened to a few. This one was pretty good a very nice change of pace. Loved the references to GOT and a few others. I normally don't like first person writing because it lacks insight to the male leads thoughts but this book took both perspectives. I also enjoyed those parts being played by a male and a female. They both did well in my opinion. There were not a lot of high charged sex scenes which was fine with me. I'd like to hear more about her friends and hope they have or will have their own books.

Nicely done alien romance. Just the right balance of good and evil; good guys and bad guys (& girls); action and romance. Pure escapist reading with a little HEA & just enough menace to intro the next book. Go Evangeline! While Cartwright's reading for audio was a bit dry, it worked for Zoe and the storyline. I love when there's a balance of male & female narration.
I've been dying for the book to come on audio and now I'm hooked.
I love all her books. She never disappoints. I may want to strangle the females at time but I keep on listening every time
I adore Evangeline books, this is a fantastic new series and the narrator's do an amazing job!
