Publisher's Summary

I never thought I'd end up being abducted by aliens!
 

I was living my dream, rotating in space around Mars on the Mars Hope Skylab. As the first American woman this far into space, I’ve accomplished more in my 28 years of life than most.

I enjoy my job, so when things go sideways and aliens board my lab, I try to stay positive and make sure that I just observe and stay alive. But I’m immediately grabbed and taken to their ship.

Unable to understand them and not knowing what they have planned for me, I have to make some hard choices about whether living is the best way to go. And how far will I go to live?

It appears that I’m now the property of the alien that grabbed me.
 

He’s big, possessive, and seems to want to get to know me a lot better....

Please note: This scifi romance alien book contains adult language and steamy adult bedroom scenes. It is intended for 18 and up listeners and adults only.

It's part of a science fiction romance series but can be heard as a standalone story with no cliffhangers!

entertaining

Interesting start to a series, it has a good pace and plenty going on. It was a little too 'insta love' for me and I realise it's tagged as erotica, but the fundamentals behind the story were excellent so I would have preferred more story and less sex.

Both narrators did an excellent job bringing the characters to life. Kelsey Navarro is new to me, she has good vocal skills and I had no trouble with anything she was narrating. Randi Johnson just gets better and better. Bren's character was much more serious than I am accustomed to Randi narrating and that rich deep baritone ... just ... wow! 😘

surprisingly really good

I really didn't think I would like this book. I really didn't want to like this book. But I was sooo wrong. this book is a non-stop, never a dull moment, action pact.... ROMANCE. Who woulda thought? It was also funny and had some good hot and heavy moments. I wish I had an alien lol. Overall, this is a good book. Very entertaining.

Spunky heroine meets gentle giant..............

Bren's Blessing is a unique and fun paranormal romance featuring Hannah, an American astronaut, and Bren, a Quasar alien. Hannah is extremely career oriented, and she has finally achieved her dream of being the first female to orbit Mars. When her ship is hijacked by aliens, she is both excited to meet another specifies and terrified for her future. Thankfully, a kind and loving - although entirely alpha male - Bren assigns himself as her protector. Thus begins a terrific story of fated mates and finding true love, but not without a lot of resistance on Hannah's part. I loved the push and pull between these two as they both struggle to accept the ever strengthening bond between them. Bren is incredibly patient with all of Hannah's questions and uncertainties, and the author does a great job of using this to maximize world building while keeping the passion level high. The book is erotic with beautifully written sex scenes. However, I thought the story had as much story as it did steam. I hope to see more in the series available on Audible soon.

Randi Johnson and Kelsey Navarro both delivery a skillful and entertaining narration. The story is told from alternating points of view, each narrated by the corresponding male/female character. The narrators also combine their performance in every chapter as Johnson reads all of Bren's dialogue and Navarro reads all of Hannah's. This is a style that takes talent to handle smoothly, and these two narrators definitely succeed.

I received a copy of this audiobook at my request in exchange for this honest review.

Instalove

I liked it. There was some serious instalove but the overall story was good. I’m curious where the next book is going to go. Narration was a highlight for me. Both narrators did a great job!

oit of this world romance

WOW! What an out of this out of this world experience. Go where no other has gone before . Nothing like an exploration. I'm not talking about space. It's One of an alien kind. Bren explores every part of Hannah's body and claims her for his own. It raises sensations he has never felt before. Hannah is in survival mode. Do whatever it takes to stay alive to get back to Earth! But wow, the sex is extraterrestrial! What does he want with her? Is she just there to be his pet? Will she be able to get back to Earth or will she want to stay with this gorgeous, sexy hot alien.
Randy Johnson's and Kelsey Navarro's narration is so hot and steamy in this story. Their narration portrayed the characters,/aliens, each with their own unique personality. I was gifted this audio in exchange for an honest review.

Erotically steamy Alien romance

Wow Bren and Ana is sexually charged. These two cannot keep their hands off each other. This soulmate thing is no joke. Despite that however, I love how Ana just doesn't accept it and asked questions. There's a lot of erotic scenes but it doesn't take away from the story, there's good world building and character development. Narration was good, I love how Randi portrayed Bren as an alpha despite the women being more powerful. Kelsey did a wonderful job as well. I'm looking forward to Matthias story and recommend this book if you love Alien/ human interaction.
I was given this audiobook by the narrator and voluntarily left this review.

Patiently waiting for my alien...

This was a quick, fun listen. Obviously you have to REALLY suspend reality with this one - I know if I was up in space alone and taken by a 7 foot alien, "mating" would not be on my mind...or how good looking he was :)

I loved Bren's character and Randi Johnson did a phenomenal job of bringing him to life. Bren was just the way I like an alpha character - possessive beyond reason. Kelsey Navarro was amazing in her portrayal of Hannah - strong with a soft side. There was no real courting between the two - Bren knew before he even met Hannah that she was his mate. He claimed her when he saw her - end of story.

I enjoyed listening to Bren's Blessing and will probably be listening to Matthias's Miracle when it releases.

Fated mate hotness!

I asked to receive this Audible book and voluntarily wrote this unbiased review. The author has written a book that is filled with erotic love scenes and a great plot. Bren is a strong and caring alpha that instantly recognizes that Hannah is his fated mate. Will Hannah come to the same conclusion? The author has her facing more obstacles one of which could prove deadly. The narrators are awesome storytellers. They skillfully portray the emotions of these characters. Randi gives Bren a deep, raspy, sexy voice, while Kelsey gives Hannah a strong feminine voice. I recommend this book.

out of this world

A really good sci fi romance with lots of steamy chemistry. I really enjoyed this storyline which has a quick flow about it. The only negative was on the performance of Bren...when he was being narrated in a normal voice it was fine but at times went into this robotic tone that I could understand at first but once the storyline revealed Bren and Hannah could understand each other's languages I thought it was unnecessary. I loved the characters and their chemistry was amazing - I also loved the female / male power balance. After reading / listening to this one you will definitely be eager for more about this alien species!

A Hot Fated Mate Story

This was a surprisingly good start to a new sci-fi romance series. It's entertaining, sensual, and steamy. The storyline is well-developed, and characters are engaging, with an instalove connection and a charged chemistry. The book is packed with sensual scenes; however, it doesn't take away from the story.

Quasar Lineage's writing is clear, precise, and well-paced with smooth scene transitions. The duel narration by Randi Johnson and Kelsey Navarro is outstanding. Their performance brings the book and characters to life. I wholly enjoyed Bren's Blessing and can't wait for the second book.

A Great Listen. Would definitely recommend...

I received a free review copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving a review.
I enjoyed this alien Sci-Fi romance, unlike other stories in this genre, the human did not get abducted but saved by the alien.
A compelling and steamy listen throughout with a lovely little twist and lead on to the next book.
The duel narrators really brought the characters to life.

Okay

The heroine is meant to be one of the smartest women on the planet yet she acts like a silly little girl most of the time which is annoying. Too much sex which is distracting as the story is pretty good once you get into it. I would suggest the author concentrate on her story line and not exciting her readers as that is where her strength lies. Also be clear on your female lead as the readers are meant to engage with them not want to throw them off a cliff. Not the worst book ever but !!!

Duet narration makes this an especially fun listen

I liked this book. It was a lot of world building. Hannah is saved by Bren who quickly realizes that she is his mate. Bren's race was facing issues because they no longer could find their mates, leading his race to become a female dominated race. The females have multiple males to help them procreate. However, once he realizes that he has found his mate, they all realize that there's a new hope. I'm sure the rest of the books in the series is about some of these aliens finding their mates. I thought the story was enjoyable with characters I'm looking forward to learning more about.

Randi Johnson has such an amazing range of voices. He plays different characters, whether male or female, beautifully and I have no issue figuring out who he is playing. Kelsey is also great and I loved the duet where they both presented during a chapter. It's awesome because it makes it seem like the audiobook is playing out like a movie. I enjoyed the experience.

I requested and received this book.

Outstanding narration. Steamy and great story

Randi Johnson and Kelsey Navarro do such a good job bringing these characters and this story to life. If I hadn't heard Randi introduce the book I would not have recognised his narration! I love the way all the male voices are done by Randi and all the female by Kelsey no matter whose point of view the chapter is from. It really helps to immerse into the story.

Ohhhhhhhh, I love this so much! The characters are fabulous and I love the world building and set up of the story. And the steam!!!! Oh the steam....if you don't like fast then you won't enjoy this...but if you do....wow! The steam flows within the story it's not just stuck in there for the sake of it. I really like where it ended and hope that there is a next book to continue with. I would happily spend more time with these characters.

Interesting Space Travel Romance

Was given the opportunity to listen to a new author for me, Pearl Tate. Normally am not a big fan of sci-fi alien books, but add the romance factor and I decided to give it a try. Was very pleased with the story and it definitely kept my interest.

Excellent job by Randi Johnson and Kelsey Navarro on the narrations. Randi does a great alien voice.

Would recommend this book to both Sci-Fi lovers and Romance lovers. It covers all the bases.
