Publisher's Summary

“You will have your place in my zoo. And in my heart.”

Jewel is a tomboy who was eventually discharged from the military because she struggled to get along with others and couldn’t adjust to the military's restricted lifestyle.

After a scandal that disrupted the social order back home, Kay is banished to a zoological research vessel, where he acts as curator. He struggles to prove himself, trying to earn his place in the order again so that he can end his exile and return to his normal life.

But when it turns out that Jewel was abducted from home and placed in an alien zoo, with Kay as the only other being around, she questions his intentions. He didn’t know that her species was an intelligent life form, and he tries to learn more about her.

She needs to learn to get along with her alien captor if she wants to enjoy her freedom outside of a cage. He said he would help her, and she believed him so much that she questioned her feelings for an alien.

But will Jewel get what she wants in her new life? What do Kay’s people really want to do to her and the rest of the humans on Earth?

Alien Zookeper’s Abduction is book 1 of the Alien Abduction series. It is a sci-fi alien romance novel with NO cheating, NO cliff-hangers, and a happy ending!

Fun and Exciting

Alien Zookeeper is an intriguing and entertaining journey. I was amazed by the in-depth look into alien technology and the enthusiasm for strange, new world. It had a little of a Star Trek feel to it which helped to captivate my attention and capture my heart. What you find within these pages is a beautifully complex storyline mixed with amazing characters that you are given the privilege to experience and enjoy. I am a huge sci-fi junkie, so when you mix that with a wonderful romance, you will always have my full attention.

Nothing is as wonderful as getting to know characters that can’t help but draw you to them. There is a magic about it that speaks to my very soul. I found that and so much more within this fun story. When you have two characters who are looking for more in life, but are clueless on how to make the change themselves, you know you are in store for something big and pretty incredible. I was not disappointed in the least! This is a breath of fresh air with its meaty and gritty story that is shaped by characters that are jaded and yet hopeful. That in itself will have me dying to read it!

The narration is a masterful touch to this already stunning story. The characters are highlighted and brought to life like no words on a page can accomplish. This story will reach into your heart and trigger a change you never saw coming. What an unforgettable experience!!

Great story and Great narration!

I love Zara Zenia's stories and I love her writing. Juno Wells is a new author to me. This is the first book in the Alien Abduction Series. This story is funny, entertaining and hot. I love the two main characters, Jewel and Kay. I also love all the scenery and the description of the habitats in the Diviner (ship). This story is so much more than what we can expect for this kind of stories. It's interesting, beautifully detailed and captivating. I'd love to listen to the next book in the Series. Sophie James has a soft voice and the narration was well done and easy to listen. I received this free review copy audiobook at my request and I have voluntarily left this review. I have read/listen this story.

I am not an animal.

This was a very entertaining book. Jewel, a human was mistakenly abducted by a alien ship that did not realize she was a intelligent being. She has to try and convince the alien zookeeper she is not an animal. This book was quite hilarious. All the crazy things she put him through. If you like the alien romance books i would recommend this book. I received this book free in exchange for an honest review.

Not your average Sc-Fi story.

I received this audiobook in exchange for an honest review at no cost to the narrator and/or author.

I love Sci-Fi books. There is just something interesting about a writer who sees the universe in a whole different way. This story is different then any other ones that I have read. Jewel is abducted, pretty standard and normal, but she is abducted because she is an exhibit, not so standard. I loved the fact that a human is being observed like a zoo animal. I am not saying that it is right that sh was kidnapped but the premise of how the two characters got together is original and unique.

I like Kay as a character. He started off just an ass but grew on me. I am glad that Jewel and him partnered up. I also enjoyed that Kay was a multileveled person.

The narration was amazing. I was convinced that each character had a personality. The narration had me engaged and made me want to be part of that world.

Intelligent Alien Abduction?

Ok, much better book than I thought it would be. Not simple alien abduction or romance. There’s intelligence and thoughtfulness put into its creation. The only off note is that Jule does not stand up for her right to her anger in Council for being inappropriately groped.
James does a creditable job with narration. I say again - you know you’ve got a good narrator/story combo when you forget about the narrator - they become background.

Out if This World Romance

After a, well, rocky start, Jewell and Kay and
find a romance that us genuinely out of this world. I can't say I would have had the composure Jewell manages, but I certainly admired it from the start. There was a book that come out a few years ago about how genders seem to practically be from different planets, and we definitely run into significant cultural differences. That's pretty facinating seeing what makes the Rahone different from humans, and I had a lot of fun watching as the interactions began to blossom into much more than either expected. The writing is excellent and really invites us to enjoy the journey. Both Jewell and Kay have their own distinct personalities, and getting to know them is awesome. There are a few twists, and that made getting to the end all the sweeter. The narrator is top notch, bringing life the the characters words. I highly recommend this audiobook. This is a voluntary review of a copy gifted by the narrator.

Two thumbs up

I was immediately drawn into this story and stayed hooked until the end. Jewel is a complex character - a loner, a strong woman, yet still struggling to find her place in life. When she's abducted by aliens, she faces a challenge she never expected and it tests parts of herself she was never aware of.

Kay is a sexy hero (for an alien LOL). He, too, is struggling with issues that impact his attraction to Jewel, a specimen added to his intergalactic zoological research project.

This story has well-written characters, an intriguing premise and strong emotional hooks. I really liked how different this book was from other sci-fi romance

Sophie James did a great job narrating the story. Smooth delivery and good characterization.
