How steamy is it? Hot Damn

Publisher's Summary

Hannah Bell, the oldest of the three Bell sisters, spends most of her time in the remotest parts of the world photographing endangered animals. She is also gifted with an extraordinary sixth sense, which has saved her life on more than one occasion. When she senses something has happened to her littlest sister, Tink, she will do whatever it takes to protect her. What she doesn't know is her sister's best friend's new science experiment has opened a portal to another world - a world she is about to be taken to whether she wants to go or not.

Borj 'Tag Krell Manok is the calmest of his four brothers, or so he always thought. The second oldest, he has been assigned the task by his father and the council to bring the sister of his brother's bond mate to their world. Borj knows deep down that Hannah is destined to be his bond mate - something he has hoped for since his first mating-rite ceremony. What he doesn't expect when he meets her is her resistance - or her independence.

When she is kidnapped by a rival clan, Borj will do anything to get her back. Hannah and Borj's escape into the vast forests of Prime draw them together in a fight not only for their lives but for a deeper understanding and trust between two vastly different worlds. Borj discovers Hannah is a fierce and cunning mate while Hannah discovers Borj is the perfect warrior to protect and love her.

Wow, what a great book!!!

This series gets better and better. I love that the women in this stories are head strong,independent. And know how to kick some Warriors ass. This story is filled with witty banter, humor and just the right amount of hot steaming sex. The narrator did an excellent job. I can't wait for book 3. If you like alien fantasy romance down load this series. S E Smith is an amazing writer and she deliverers great storylines. So worth a credit

GOOD SCI-FI ROMANCE + STEAM, DRAMA, ACTION & HOOTS

When I'm in the mood for a sextraterrestrial listen I turn to S.E. Smith because over and over again she has captured my imagination with her various loveable Alpha Aliens. And, especially in this series, she fills the listen with interesting characters for you to care about so, when you finish the book, you can't wait until the next one comes out so you can, once again, dip into this alternate Universe.... where women are worshiped by gorgeous Prime Warriors.

This book continues where Tink and J'kar's story left off and now Tink wants her Mom close by so J'kar's brother Borj is only too happy to take on the mission and bring Tink's Mom to her.... but he also has a mission of his own. Since seeing a picture of Tink and her two Sisters he has been obsessed with one of them - Hannah and he's sure she's his bonded mate. But unfortunately he doesn't quite pick the best time to get acquainted.... and he's not prepared for the painful welcome he gets when he creeps in on the feisty Hannah unannounced and in the middle of the night. Hannah had a very traumatic experience in her teens and now prefers a fairly solitary existence photographing wildlife in dangerous and deadly environments. And, after her trauma, she's made sure she can look after herself by taking self defence lessons which happily come in very handy when a huge intruder thinks he can calmly break into Cosmos's home.

This results in some fun chapters and, although Borj doesn't get the welcome he was expecting,..... he does get the positive answer he was hoping for - the beautiful Hannah is his mate - but unfortunately she'll need a lot of convincing on that issue. Thankfully Borj gets help from an unlikely source..... her loving parents who are fun, sexually very open minded and are all too willing for this tender but strong and protective Prime Warrior to claim their daughter. They're also very keen to go and visit Tink on Baade which makes for witty banter, sly sexual innuendos and some fun visualizations because these two become well loved sexual Gurus to any Prime citizen with questions.

Hannah and Borj's romance flows along imperfectly perfect with touching tender scenes as well as passionate steamy scenes too. There's drama and angst because, despite Borj's heartfelt promises to protect his Hannah, she is kidnapped not once but twice.... once by good men with good intentions and once by very very bad men with nothing but bad intentions - which make for some tension filled scenes . Dual, and occasionally multiple, POV's and this fantastic fantasy world, along with it's many inhabitants, are all wonderfully brought to life by a very good narrator. And it leaves you eagerly anticipating your next visit with them.

Worth a credit? This listen was very enjoyable, was really entertaining, was a hoot, was much more than I'd hoped for and, in my little world, was, and is, definitely creditworthy. IMO, this would best be listened to after book 1 which has the initial introductions to all the characters, explains the Gateway, tells the backstory to their race, outlines their dilemmas and shows what a super-caring race these Prime Aliens are.

3 Hannah's Warrior Stars

I don’t really have a lot to say about this one, I liked it but I didn’t love it and I just found Hannah to be an ok character nothing about her jumped out at me and connected me to the story and that’s totally ok.

I liked Borj and I am glad he found his mate.

Just because I didn’t connect well with this book doesn’t mean I didn’t like it or that I won’t keep going with the series I will.

I enjoyed the narration; I again believe she brought out the voice of the characters in a unique way.

*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*

Verdict is in

I have found that I do indeed like the narrator. I have listened to the first two audio books several times and I don't think you can do that if you really dislike the narrator. No, I am enjoying my audio books alot. Thanks Suzanne, I appreciate your hard work.
Oh yea, thanks to the author too!😌

When will we hear from Gracie?

Narrator does sweet female voices well

I enjoyed listening to his story.
Borj goes back to earth to bring a family member back to his planet to help Tink with her pregnancy. He is determined that it be Hannah that comes back. He has seen her picture and believes that she is his bond mate. When he steps into Cosmos's building and is seen by Hannah she knocks him out. And when she touches him, the mating tattoos appear on the palm of both of their hands. Hannah has a past kidnapping on earth that interferes with her trust and ability to be with men. She is also kidnapped several more times while on his planet. We see a little bit of some of the different tribes. The man who stabbed Tink in the first book plays a huge part in this story too.
There is definitely more adventure in this book. I liked it better than the first one. Her parents bring humor to the sexual relationship education of the alien planet.

WONDERFUL

The characters were so real, Ms Smith does not duplicate descriptions or history in her books, at times I felt the characters pain so strongly I actually cried, this was a powerful love story with plenty of action for us girls that never considered ourselves “Girly girls” the characters had thoughts and they were there to read

Once Again

S.E. Smith has done it again. This second book was as engaging, for me, as the first. Just wish the heroines weren't so reckless in a new land, make the bad guys work a little more.

Great sci-fi romance!

This second audiobook in this series was very entertaining and fast paced. Hannah is Tink’s sister, from the first book. She’s a wildlife photographer and returns from Africa when she feels something is happening to her sister. She’s surprised at Tink’s home by an intruder and bashes him with a skillet! The hero is the brother of a Tink’s new mate and he’s there t bring Hannah back to his world to help her sister with her pregnancy. She gets a big surprise to ind out he claims to be her fated mate. Along with her parents, she travels with Borj and things are good, until she’s kidnapped. Narration is very well done. Looking forward to listening to the next book in this series!

Actually pretty good; got some feels out of me

Being an introvert with some socialization issues myself, the loneliness expressed by Hannah and Borj really struck a cord for me. Good love story. Too bad real life isn’t like that.

Ms. Freeman is a pretty good narrator, but she needs work: her speed, pacing, and gender voices are great, but I think she puts too much emphasis on enunciation. Since there are no accents in this story, there’s no way to know how she is there.

Brilliant continuation in the story

I started with Tink's story and I loved how different Hannah was from her sister. A common problem I find in books is that although the author tries to write different personalities they all seem to blend into one. I loved that they were different and had a darker past to overcome. The narration was excellent, the only slight problem personally was I sometimes got names mixed up but that can happen when there are a few characters with similar names. I never confused the MC's so the story was never in trouble just some of the background characters.

Nice bit of escapism better than the first book

This is a better book than the first, though I would recommend book 1 before this as this book follows on immediately from the (unsatisfactory) end of book 1.

The characters are better and the plot has much more to it. The balance of plot to sex scenes is about right.
Fairly predictable mix of lovers falling out, peril for the heroine and some quite funny scenes and some raunchy bedroom action. The book pans out pretty much as you would expect.
I really liked the character of Hannah. I also thought Borj was a better defined person than J'kar in the first book
I still dont like the narrator I don't think the male voices are good at all but the female voices are OK.
I enjoyed the book and will definitely be downloading the next one

Even better than reading the book.

I loved all S.E. Smith's books but in audio format they are even better. I couldn't recommend this author more. She's one of my favourites and in audio format you get a real feel for the emotions of the characters.
