Pleasant read with an original premise

The concept behind the story is very original. An alien race in which every member is build to fulfill a purpose and that includes taking over failing companies and "fixing" the former owners while making them life companions. The alien and human relationship is fraught with distrust, but their encounters are very arousing and thrilling. The actor performed well, making each character's voice distinctive and recognisable. Overall, a sexy and pleasant story.

Great voice

I loved the story. But I really enjoyed his voice. Very relaxing. I have read or listened to almost all of Yamila's writings and she always impresses me.

Great Story, Narration had some real problems.

What did you like best about Hostile Taking? What did you like least?

The story was wonderful with some world building and steamy scenes. A bit too heavy on the mention of 'organs' and 'members' and other such sex related things. The narrator was actually really good, however he had trouble pronouncing words like 'heady' and a few others.

What other book might you compare Hostile Taking to and why?

It's something like Acquainted with the Night

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Most of the problem with the narrator were obvious editing problems, where the narrator mispronounced words, or repeated a sentence.

Could you see Hostile Taking being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Ha!

Don't Bother

Bad editing - sentences being repeated. Announcing the end of the chapters - announcing the start of a new chapter isn't enough? I'm glad I only paid $1.99 because I couldn't get past chapter 3.

I love love this book

This is one of my favorite books from this author. No cheating or sleeping with other people, just a warm sweet romance with a touch of scorching sex.
