I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again
It's such a shame that these books aren't longer as I really enjoy a good Sci-Fi romance and this one doesn't disappoint. As handsome Arathian Ambassador Rex finally organizes the dying Maggie to be transported aboard their Science Spaceship to give her an ultimatum.... life with them or death, little does he know just how her decision was going to change his life too.
Great characters who get involved in saving Maggie, saving an aeroplane full of people who were, unfortunately for them, in the wrong place at the wrong time and also saving some already rescued Earthers from enemies within their own Group. It's action packed with a nicely developing romance which eventually leads to passion, sex as another Arathian finds his mate. Not as hot as book 1.
Dual POV's, great narration and the story involves Ty, Lacy and Kor (from book 1) too so we get all the latest about the pregnancy..... and the much anticipated and celebrated birth.
Worth a credit? The more I listen to these stories the more I become sucked into the outcome for these loving, tender and caring aliens. Don't let the length put you off as there's a lot packed into these listens which are, IMHO, well worth a credit.
The story was good. It had many bad guys but not ugly graphic. The narrator was not appropriate for this book. He sounded condescending most of the time. I mean really... who talks like that? I enjoyed the book despite the narrator. I'll listen to the next book in the series.
"Oh dear ..."
I often purchase a series of Audible books by the same author at a time... I love finding new and exciting styles, getting to know the Author's unique way of painting a picture with words.
Sadly, this author, Nicole Krizek was completely overshadowed by the narrator Philip Alces... in the worst way. I listened to the sample on Audible before I got this series and I strongly recommend that you do too! The sample was okay as far as I could tell so it didn't help me at all.
