Publisher's Summary

Her boyfriend's attempted murder leaves Megan floundering in the ocean. Sinking without hope, the bright light she sees in the night sky isn't her doorway to heaven, but rather the beginning of her accidental abduction by a space pirate. While thankful of his rescue, Megan stays true to form and just can't keep her mouth shut, even when he keeps threatening to kill her - or auction her off to the highest bidder. Even odder, despite her decision to not get involved with her wickedly hot captor, she can't help craving his touch.

Tren retired from his job as a mercenary so he could enjoy life, but he never counted on the boredom of normalcy. The acquisition of rare items has somewhat filled the void, but his accidental abduction of an outspoken Earthling, who doesn't know when to shut up, turns his life upside. Her fiery spirit draws him while at the same time drives him insane. Struggling with his urges, he must decide - throttle her barbarian neck or ravish her delectably lush body?

Despite what his heart tries to tell him, he's determined to sell her to the highest bidder even as he seduces her body. However, despite his best intentions, he discovers he can't let her go. And when a foe from his past thinks to steal her, he'll do anything to get her back.

Funny and Totaly Worth it!

This one's worth it! I bought this story because it's fairly short, and didn't cost much, but I honestly did not expect it to be that good. Boy, I was wrong! I loved it, and had to give it five stars!

Megan has bad taste in men, even worse, she's having a really bad night! Her current ex-boyfriend leaves her for dead, stranded, and floating in the middle of the ocean. Knowing she will not make it to see the sunrise, she starts to think she has died when all of a sudden she see's a light; however, she starts to float up towards a spaceship along with a bunch of fish from the sea. This light guides them towards what looks like a sealed aquarium, and she knows if she's dumped inside, she will drown for sure. She sluggishly pulls herself out of the lights gravitation pull, just to fall and break her leg. While laying there on the verge of passing out, she looks up to see an alien and croaks "Holy s***. You're like Han Solo on crack" and passes out. Yep, she's having a bad night.

Tren can't believe he accidently abducted an Earthling. "Ah, Fruckxn' crap." What's he suppose to do with it? Should he "off" the Earthling or keep it? Once he determines the Earthlings a she, he decides he'll sale her the first chance he get's, even if there is not a much of a market for Earthlings due to their temperament. They tend to cry, get hysterical, and have issues with being sold.

Megan knows Tren's plans to sell her, but she doesn't hold back and pushes all his buttons. She's sarcastic, annoying, and challenges him every chance she gets. Even though he set on selling her, they can't deny their growing attractions to each other, and decide to take advantage and give into their desires for each other or at least until she is sold. The sex between them is hot, really hot, and they are quickly growing addicted to each other. As they pass each destination, he decides to keep her a little while longer.

Watching their banter, attractions, and relationship grow was sexy and funny. Well worth my time and credit. I definitely recommend this Sci-Fi romance.

The dual narration was a treat, and I really enjoyed both J.F. Harding and Holly Chandler's performance! They brought the story and characters to life.

Very Funny

This is the first book i have read by Eve Langlais. I loved it. It was funny. I look forward to reading more in this series and trying some of her other books. This book was about an alien who came to earth get specimens from the ocean and wound up with an unexpected specimen. Tren has already left Earth when he discovers Megan. He contemplates killing her or selling her at an auction. He tries to intimidate her but it does it work. She is always getting into trouble and talking. He is not used to having people stand up to him. He is always telling her he is going to sell her to an auction. There is sexually tension between the two. Finn does not want to admit he is likes having her around. After going through adventures together they finally begin to care about each other. Will this be enough?

Both narrators were great. They brought the characters.

I love this book. My only regret is that it was not long enough. I wanted more. Can;t wait till the next book.

Unexpected dual narration made this SFR story soar

When I saw the Audible upgrade on my Kindle for Samsung mobile app, I was surprised to be treated not one, but two narrators!

With Audible, Eve's book came to life, adding an extra dimension to this humourous, sexy scifi romance. Kudos to the choice of narrators. Please, now that you've spoiled your readers, surely book 2 (Jaro's story) will also have an Audible upgrade soon?

Cute snarky female (anglo) catch by purple alien.

Strong female that finds herself in the middle of the ocean from her lover attempt to killer her & take all her money. Large purple alien male accidently fishes her out & wants to sell her to off planets but, falls for her. Conflit & problems occur and "love/lust" conquers all. Cute story with good one liners. Worth a credi or money. YES..

Once you go purple.......

Purple aliens, scheming council members, one sassy earthling, what's not to love. The witty banter keeps you solidly entertained throughout this book. The epilogue is epic. The dual narration was executed excellent. The book is about 4 and a half hours long, but it covers so much and the world building is detailed. The characters are strong and likable. I haven't listened to a book read by Holly Chandler and J.F. Harding before, I wasn't disappointed. The flow of the story is fast and kept that pace throughout. I can't wait to read the others in the series.

So Fun!

I’ve been in need of something witty, light hearted and fun, and that is exactly what I got! This is full of fun running around the galaxy, seeing new species and learning, with a heroin who has a saucy mouth, and her grumbling “pirate” alien—male thing(?) being(?)... anyways, if you want a quick, fun, space ship adventure that’ll curl your toes, then this is the book!

Not a bad start. Funny

As anyone who reads my reviews either here or over at Hot Listens, you know that I’m a huge fan of Eve Langlais. I’ve read or listened to most of her works, but she writes really fast and I’m way behind on her stuff. It is very hard to keep pace with her. Anyway, I have yet to try her Alien Abduction series. Seeing that it was on audio now, I quickly grabbed it up.

So, this book is very fun and pretty light-hearted. This one is very sexy and will make you laugh (if there is anything I will guarantee about a Eve Langlais book, it will make you laugh). Some of the stories have a little more of a serious edge, a more suspenseful part to the story. I didn’t notice as much of that with this book as many of the more recently released stories.

Megan is find herself abandoned out in the middle of the ocean. Her boyfriend decided to just get rid of her instead of dumping her. Just as she thinks she is going to drown, she’s picked up with a bunch of fish and deposited in a space ship.

So Tren, is a retired merc and now a space pirate. He is also purple and extremely sexy. Now he is stranded with this human that he wants nothing to do with. He decides he’s going to sell her at the first chance that he can. That is until he decides that he must keep her.

This is a pretty short story. There isn’t a huge amount of depth to it, but it is full of romance. Both Megan and Tren fight the attraction between them, which brings about some really great banter. I would’ve loved to have seem a little more story outside of the quick romance, but that didn’t prevent me from enjoying this really fun story. It has me very excited to see more books about these purple heroes. So in short, not my favorite Eve Langlais book, but I had a lot of fun with it and can’t wait to get further into this series.

Fun quotes
“Holy sh*t. You’re like Han Solo on crack.”

“A grin spread across her face. He’d not only come for her, he loved her enough to start a galactic war. How cool was that? Nothing says I love you like bloodshed and violence.”


Narration
I was not familiar with either of these narrators before starting this story. I enjoyed both of them. I didn't have any issues with men or women's voices, though there wasn't anything very complex and not a large number of characters to voice. I did enjoy the voices they had. Their pacing was great and they did a wonderful with the banter between these two. I hope that these two stay on for the entire series.

poor

Not to my taste at all. Feels like the right boxes have been ticked beginning middle and end. Lots of sex scenes and innuendo that will do. Never mind if the quality is bad the author's name on the book will sell this one.
