Publisher's Summary

A dark and edgy romance that will appeal to fans of erotic and turbulent relationships....

In the near future, the Krinar rule the Earth. An advanced race from another galaxy, they are still a mystery to us - and we are completely at their mercy.

Shy and innocent, Mia Stalis is a college student in New York City who has led a very normal life. Like most people, she's never had any interactions with the invaders - until one fateful day in the park changes everything. Having caught Korum's eye, she must now contend with a powerful, dangerously seductive Krinar who wants to possess her and will stop at nothing to make her his own.

How far would you go to regain your freedom? How much would you sacrifice to help your people? What choice will you make when you begin to fall for your enemy?

WARNING: This book contains strong sexual content and explicit language and is not suitable for listeners under 18.

Critic Reviews

"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 whole team should change to childrens books.

the story is ok but no depth. I believe the team of anna zaires and dima zales would make good young adult authors and the narrator is not engaged in the emotions of the characters.

Predictable weak and dumb heroin

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The female character and the narrator....

Would you be willing to try another book from Anna Zaires and Dima Zales ? Why or why not?

Not too sure if I will listen to any more books from the author. I stop listing to this one by chapter 7 because of number of reasons, 1st the narrator, 2nd the female character came across weak and clueless, 3rd I couldn't understand how a 2000 years old guy was even attracted to her. For example, she tried to put him off by herself stink with sweat, ate garlic and onion, than she gets drunk and made out with him. The next day, she doesn't bother to take a shower or brush her teeth, but at least she decides to chew on gum and walk over to his place (I thinking by than she smelled even more sweaty) and has sex with him. Absolutely revolting, I thought she was disgusting. From that point on I just could not get into it. The narrator did not help either!!

Would you listen to another book narrated by Kathleen Godwin?

Not again, she made the book sound boring, and I kept falling asleep. There was no excitement, enthusiasm or much emotion in her tone. Completely, annoying. That I could not decide it was the book that I dislike or the narrator. I guess, it was the narrator that made me dislike the book so much… completely annoying!!!!

Did Close Liaisons inspire you to do anything?

Yes - not eat garlic and onion before a date!!

Any additional comments?

Waist of my money!!!

Horrible narration!

How could the performance have been better?

A new narrator would make a huge difference. I liked the story but the narrator almost put me to sleep.

Started out great...

I was skeptical to buy this one because the alien/sci-fi species wasn't really my type of book, but decided to go for because I had some credits built up.

I was very surprised when I started listening - I got interested very fast and enjoyed the story.

The narrator could have given more pause between each character, but I got over that eventually.

The male is definitely domineering and in real life, would be a totally unhealthy relationship. But let's all face the facts, in our romance books, we like a little domineering in our men! I found the book very sexy with the exception of Mia and how childish she was at points. I connected with some things she felt as I am similar to her description of being a petite brunette woman, but her reactions were a bit annoying.

If you have the credits and don't mind risking 1 - I say go for it and check it out! It's sexy enough to keep you interested for most of it. I think the last hour is when I chimed out and really already knew the outcome.

Worth a shot...

Not good! Not good at all. Waste. Weak pathetic heroine. Green propaganda. Nonsense. Too bad. Idea with lots of potential.

Promoting Bad Relationships

The narrator had a pleasant voice, not fast or flat. But most times I couldn't tell if she was speaking for the characters or just telling the story.
On the other hand, the story had potential but did not live up to it. If the reader/listener is okay with stories where the main female character is weak and pretty much agrees with everyone and follows their advice and orders without really thinking for herself and the male character has all the power and tells the main female character what to do and she does with what only can be called "token" protestation (and yes, I know this is a run on sentence. I am making a point.), this might be a book they want to listen to. For me,...no.

Please don't waste your credit!

Any additional comments?

I can not believe all the 4 and 5 star reviews this book received...This by far is one of the worse romance story I have listened to on audible thus far. MINUS the graphic sex scenes this book is written for a younger audience...Oh say per-teen age. The main character is annoyingly childish and the narrator is horrid. My suggestion is to take your credit and use it on a more worth while author with better narrators such as Kresley Cole (Immortals After Dark) and/or Laurann Dohner (Cryborg Seductions). This is just my 2 cent!
