I loved this!

After reading the blurb, I HAD TO BUY THIS! I must say, I was NOT disappointed! This book contains the perfect mix of PNR, comedy and heat! I giggled through the whole book. The writing was on point - the narration was great- I can't wait to read more!!

A Touch of Fate

An interesting paranormal romance with lots of humor thrown in. The nerdy sci-fi references hit the mark with me and made me chuckle. The steamy scenes definitely make this book geared towards 18+.

This was my first Aidy Award story and it won’t be my last. I really enjoyed the writing style and this story was a great start to the series.

Gwen Cross did a nice job with the narration. I had no complaints.

Curvy girls yes!

I was given this book for free at my request but the opinion is of my own. Kady is a curvy girl and a geek awesome combination in my eyes since I’m also curvy and geeky. Great action and adventure. Some great spice with still an amazing story. I’m so in love with the fact that there is a fantasy series that fits the curvy geeky girls out there. Thank you!

A Great Start to the Series!

A Touch of Fate had me laughing out loud one moment, and balling my eyes out the next. Kady was just trying to get her truck to start when all of a sudden an alien spaceship crashes into her property. Who knew that alien spaceship carried her fated mate?! Who knew she was even a witch?! She didn’t! When the Men In Black come sniffing around, will she protect the alien, Black? Or will she turn him into the government? Are they even the truly government? When things take a turn for the worst, can Kady save them both?

The story and the narration were absolute perfection. Each character was unique and distinct. Gwen Cross was brilliant. Her southern accent was on point. The personality she attached to each character left me wanting to know what happens next to each character. This was brilliantly done and I loved the excerpt of Book 2 at the end left me wanting to get my hands on the next installment!

Loved it

I really enjoyed this story. It was interesting and had me hooked until the very end. Kady had me amused from the start and I loved her and Black together. They had such intense chemistry and their steamy scenes were hot.
This novel was more than just a romance. There was action, adventure, humour and so much more.
The story was narrated by Gwen Cross. She did a fabulous job with the narration and portraying the different characters. I liked her voice and she really did bring the story to life. I enjoyed this paranormal sci-fi romance and would highly recommend it.

pretty good

I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

So, I thought this was a great an enjoyable listen. It is funny and kept me entertained. There is a healthy dose of snark which I adore. It actually reminded me a lot of Midnight, Texas. That isn't a bad thing. In fact, it's original enough that it doesn't come across as pledgurism. Just has a similar "feel" to it. All in all, I enjoyed this enough to want to listen to more in the series.

A touch of a great audio

This isnt my first Sci -Fi listen. . They are not my favourite. I usually don’t look for them. But this was a great one . I like how the story was a mixture of a Sci-Fi and a PNR Mixtec together. There was other positive in the story . It had funny lines that will make you laugh.
The Hero is Black who is a Bearshifter who is in charge of Star Rangers . The heroine is Katy who is a witch . She loves to be alone and hates intermixing with anyone. There are fantastic hot steamy scenes between the two.

Gwen was great as a narrator , her voice is hot , strong and clear

Cute listen

I thought this was cute and at times funny, it was just hard for me to get into it. It might have been my mood but I had a hard time getting through the audio. It has an okay plot, the characters were likable but I just got lost.

I thought the narrator was good, she showed good emotions at time maybe a little lacking, her tones were good. There were no repeating of words, no volume changes, Her character voices were good. I had no problem understanding who was taking or what they were feeling. All in all she did a nice job.

Great Listen

Kady has left society to live alone because she is tired of being bullied by men. Black is an alien that has crashed landed near her home and she wants to save him from the government agencies that will probe and dissect him. They are immediately attracted to each other and Black realizes that she is his mate. They must now fight for their lives and freedom from corrupt agents and the villains from Black's world while Kady discovers all kinds of secrets about herself. Full of action, drama and hot sex scenes. Great Narration.

My first shape-shifter romance and I loved it!

I was blown away by this book. Not familiar with this type of book, I didn't know what to expect, but I was drawn in from the beginning. Award's tone is snarky, funny, and oh so funny. This book had the perfect amount of paranormal and human, sprinkled with blazing hot sex scenes. The curvy girl gets her hunky guy and I was cheering for them the whole time. I also loved the narration as well. Gwen Cross did a great job with the wide range of characters and had a really pleasing slight drawl.

Sexy, Fast-paced and a little bit weird

Honestly, this book starts off running. Or perhaps crashing is the right word. Alien Bear Shifter Star Ranger Black literally crashes into Kady's backyard. Aside from the instant attaction that comes with being fated mates, they almost instantly have to rely on each other to get away from the authorities. On the run from them, Kady and Black find themselves running from the spectral soul stealers as well. In fact most of the book swings between their intense sexual attraction and their intense battle with their enemies. They slip down the proverbial rabbit hole into a world filled with paranormal beings, including witches, gnomes and much more.

It is an interesting start to the series. It definitely keeps the listener busy with a rapidly developing plot. Overall the story is a bit weird but definitely fun!

Magical!

Aidy Award's Fated for Curves was a creative paranormal / shape shifting book. I love it when the author doesn't leave me with unanswered questions at the end of the story - Aidy Award gives depth to all her characters so you can follow or tie them into the story later. I also love that the main character was given special powers and helped her to see her true value and empower herself.
Gwen Cross was wonderful as a narrator and helped to bring each of the personalities out through her voice.

A Touch of Fate

I enjoyed the story in this book and loved the little quirky comments throughout the whole thing. I feel as though I missed something with the narration though. I had a hard time connecting and hearing the many emotions that were written. That being said, I would definitely give the next book a try in hopes of some improvements and listening to another story.

Fantastic funny read/listen

Gwen has the personality and humour 100% spot on. Luckily I was listening while on my own as I was crying with laughter through a lot of this book. Written so well by Aidy, I need more from this author! Highly recommended.
