"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)
The production and narration was so poor, that the only thing that recommends the book was the continuity of the story.
Yes, I would recommend the book, and the series.
Narration pace was too fast. I kept checking that I had not accidentally selected 1.5 speed on the Audible app. The production did not allow enough pauses at the end of sentences and at the end of each chapter. Uncomfortable listening experience - like speeding things up to meet a pre-defined total running time (TRT). Awful.
Yes, the book was hard to put down.
Series audio books should always have the same narrator. This series had a different narrator for each of the three books, which made it hard to concentrate on the story and follow which character was speaking, because of each narrator's different style.
I'm enjoying the story in general. It is a pleasant listen while doing your every day tasks.
The narrator doesn't necessarily realize when she is speaking for a male voice. She sometimes makes the male voice sound so feminine that it is distracting enough to pull you out of the story
A better narrator
Gotten a different, more adult sounding, less robotic narrator.
There are many narrators, both male and female, that could have pulled this off much better; no not better, pulled it off period. Kitty Hendrix's voice was not only too childish but her inflections and expressions, in my opinion, were used at inappropriate times.
I have tried no less than five times to listen to this book, especially because many listeners sing praises of it eroticism, romance, suspense, etc. Just couldn't do it; KH's voice and exclamations were so childish and inappropriate and her narration so robotic that it was entirely impossible for me to get through.
I have reviewed many, many books because I have listened to literally hundreds over the years and my main complaint, always, is lack of good narrator. I can, like many other reviewers I read of, tolerate a mediocre book, even a drab one if the narrator is good.
Sorry AZ and DZ, your book may tick all my boxes but the audio publisher did you a great disservice.
I wished so much Kathleen Godwin continued narrating the second book. For the most part, I found narration tolerable by Kitty Hendrix (there are plenty narrators that are so much worse), however, I found almost impossible to listen to sex scenes…. I highly recommend to get a book instead. I would buy this book again with a different narrator.
If she got a better narrator.
Another good book ruined by the narrator. Hard to tell if the book is any good when the narration is so bad.
By not changing narrater - All this narrater does is read the book and when slight voice change is really bad
Depending on narrater
cant get through the book will have to read it
Narrator killed the book for me
Edwina "I Love Books'
THE ROMANCE, THE TECHNOLOGY THE STORYLINE WAS VERY GOOD!!
NO!! KITTY HENDRIX WAS THE WORST NARRATOR I HAVE YET HEARD FROM AUDIBLE!! SHE USES THE SAME VOICE FOR ALL THE CHARACTERS. SHE IS JUST READING. VERY FLAT!!
I really like the story. A must read for paranormal romance and science fiction lovers.
I know it's really not the narrator's fault but really? Audible, someone there needs to listen and check it out. I did make it through due to the greatness of the series and wanting to know what happened next.
This time, I couldn't last more than 2 hours before giving up.
The narrator is still not changing her voice for the characters, so you don't know when she stops telling the story and starts speaking for both the male and female characters.
The story is still falling flat. The main female character cannot seem to stand up for herself and basically does what the main male character wants her to, but she protests and then falls into bed (Great protesting). Not really too much character development or growth. It's the same story in a different location.
Home is where my books are.
I really enjoyed these sexy light reads about aliens in New York. Unfortunately, the first two books are read by two different, but equally awful readers. Why do publishers do this? They destroy a books chances at being purchased when they pick bad readers. Are they just given a list of names and choose by tossing a dart? Doesn't anyone bother to listen to samples of the readers work -- or better yet, audition them?
I haven's listened to book 3 -- but I don't have high hopes.
Skip these in audio unless you love to be frustrated.
