Publisher's Summary

Welcome to my life as an intergalactic mail order bride.

Welcome to hell.

I just traveled halfway across the galaxy to meet my new husband.

With no women left on Auxem, he should know how to appreciate a lady.

Especially me, a lady from Earth!

He knows how lucky he has to have me. He knows how far I've come.

So why is he acting like such a complete jerk?

I know he's used to getting what he wants, but underneath his confident, chiseled exterior, he's hiding a big secret.

He barely speaks to me.

Now we're stranded together on a remote planet.

He's got a perfect body.

I hope he knows how to use it.

    "The summary is very deceiving!"

    This is actually several books in one. The first 2 were painful to listen to because of both the stories and the narrations. The stories we're juvenile at best, and the narrators even managed to sound bored through the sexy bits. The last 2 stories we're better. They had a bit more meat to them and the narrators were much more enjoyable to listen to. I wouldn't recommend wasting a credit on it though.

    "Where to Begin..."

    Okay.. this "book" was just totally insane. The description, as posted in other reviews, is VERY misleading!! This is not one long book. It is FIVE books total. I've included a breakdown of the chapters for each book below.

    As for the initial book itself, before I even purchased this audiobook, I went to Lisa Lace's website to view the series and make sure it was a standalone since the title states it's part of a series but there is no book number. There is no numerical value or suggested reading order that is easily seen either on her website or on Audible. So I purchased it. Where the book begins feels like it's in the middle of the story. I can only assume, not having read or listened to any of the other Auxem books, that the first half of this story is included in one or more of the other books previously published. Very, very disappointing listen.

    Also, the female narrator for the first two books in this "collection" is difficult to listen to. I find her voice to be very grating. As for the "collection" itself, it doesn't make sense to me at all. First is a novel that isn't a standalone, second is book 13 followed by books 3-5 of a different series. I get the series tie together because the entirety of Lisa Lace's writing seems centered on the idea around TerraMates, but I listened to the first couple of books for that series and was unimpressed. I was hoping to give this author another chance with a different series but am sadly disappointed.

    I have given only one written review before this in the several years I've been listening to Audible. This book was so misleading I felt the need to actually write a review versus just giving star ratings, which I do for all books.

    Here is the breakdown:

    Ayrie: An Auxem Novel
    Ch 1 - Ch 25

    Auxem: TerraMates Book 13
    Ch 26 - Ch 47

    Waterworld Confidential: TerraMates Book 3
    Ch 48 - Ch 69

    Alpha's Enslaved Bride: TerraMates Book 4
    Ch 70 - Ch 90

    Auctioned to the Alpha: TerraMates Book 5
    Ch 91 - Ch 123 {end}

    "don't let the length fool you"

    I bought this because it says that it's 26hr long. I thought it be getting my money's worth. I'm essence I finished listening to the book in a day. so really it was a novella with the beginning of books attached to it to make the length longer then the 3 to four hours the actually book is.

    Story
    "Ayrie by Lisa Lace"
    Where does Ayrie rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Ayrie is one of my favorites in this series.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ayrie?

    When Ayrie and Elle hit the water after Ayrie's exhaustion and Elle saves them both with her lifeguard swimming skills.


    Which character – as performed by Kelly Morgan and Paul Brion – was your favorite?

    Elle is my favorite character.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Elle takes a swim and then a nap alone on the beach while Ayrie leaves at the shelter they found on the island so he can go up on the mountaintop to signal for help. Then he comes back and can't find her. He panics. It was quite touching.


    Any additional comments?

    I really liked Ayrie and Elle's story. They got off to a rocky start, neither sure of their own feelings much less the other's, and both agreeing to the match for reasons other than wanting to fall in love. Despite this, feelings of love do begin to develop between them and when they find themselves depending on each other to stay alive the love between them shines through. AYRIE is the second book in Lisa Lace's newest series, Auxem. It's also essentially the fifteenth book in her TerraMates series. However, this book is a stand-alone, full-length science fiction romance. There are no cliffhangers, and a happy ending!  

    Ayrie being the second of the five princes of Auxem it was not important for him to choose a bride from the women volunteering to come to help his planet, but there was something about Elle's vulnerability he could not ignore. The fact that she was the sexiest and most beautiful woman he'd ever seen made her practically irresistible. Likewise, Elle didn't want to fall in love with her husband, but Ayrie was gorgeous and she was drawn to his confidence, good looks, and hard well-built body. The fact that they both agreed to a marriage of convenience... in name only... well, it wasn't really working out for either of them. Everyone else could see how much they cared for each other, but denial, denial, denial, lol.

    As always there is action, danger, and romance between and independent earth woman and a sexy alien. This time he's a prince! Super story! I enjoyed the narration provided by Kelly Morgan and Paul Brion. Each did a great job of illustrating each characters individual voices and personality. 4 stars

    ~Complimentary audiobook received. All opinions expressed in this review are my own.

    "a cool adittion to the series"

    I have to say that the 26 hours mark did scared me a little, but fear not ayrie is like 5 hours longs after that this audio have a reprise of some books on the series so if you never heard another one this could be a good way to start the collection.

    the narrators were good I liked them a lot so tje performance was good and emotional.

    the plot was good, it did follow the line the others did and I was glad that it did interconect at some point very subtle with other pairings and places on the series that was fantastic.

    I was happy to see that integration and im anxipusly waiting the next book on the series.

    "Could not finish it"

    Female narrator was so bad! Each sentence was its own separate line to be punched out. No flow at all.

    "5 complete and very entertaining Sci-Fi novels!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, overall the 5 complete novels and 1 teaser chapter were so interesting that I could overlook those narrators who were not as good and revel in the narrators who were stronger. If you are like me and just don't have e-book reading time, then definitely dive into Lisa Lace's Auxem/TerraMates universe via audiobook. I listened at an increased speed of 1.2 which didn't always work for the weaker narrating duos.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Quinn and Airik in Alpha's Enslaved Bride: A SciFi Alien Mail Order Bride Romance (TerraMates Book 4) which is included in this Ayrie bundled audiobook collection.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I'll go with the last one that I heard from Auctioned to the Alpha: A SciFi Alien Mail Order Bride Romance (TerraMates Book 5). It's the freshest in my mind - when Eden and Thiago discover the true gender of Thiago's pet Hercules and what legacy resulted from that. It was such a surprise and cute as well. =]


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    At 26.5 hours, no. However, my favorite complete novel included in this collection was Alpha's Enslaved Bride: A SciFi Alien Mail Order Bride Romance (TerraMates Book 4). I listened to a huge chunk of it while doing 5 loads of laundry after work last week. I was very impressed with the narrating duo Kelly Owens (5 stars!) and Peter Verbena (5 stars!) as well as the excellent plot about 2 precogs aka psychics (human female Quinn and alien male Airik).


    Any additional comments?

    Author Lisa Lace has a great imagination, and I look forward to reading more of her novels in the future. Readers who choose to do the Audible format may want to read to the audiobook novels included in the order suggested by Audible Reviewer Erin below [my overall rating for each is listed in brackets]:

    Track 26-47 Auxem book 1 / TerraMates book 13 [Overall rating - 3 stars]

    Track 01-25 Auxem book 2: Ayrie [Overall rating - 3 stars]

    Track 25-Auxem book 3: Anders teaser excerpt only [Debut rating 4 stars]

    Track 48-Terra Mates book 3: Water World Confidential [Overall rating 3 stars]

    Track 70-Terra Mates book 4: Alpha’s Enslaved Bride [Overall rating - 5 stars]

    Track 90-Terra Mates book 5: Auctioned to the Alpha [Overall rating - 4 stars]

    "Entertainng distraction for long distance travels"

    All Terra mate lead characters are ALL pale anglo females. But the male love interest (aliens) vary in color & appearance. So if you enjoy diverse & inclusive stories with different looking female characters within stories, this is not for you.. BUT... for the price & volume of stories it worth a consideration. the stories are well written & narration is entertaining. There is action, drama & conflict resolution just so... Flip a coin... I personally found it entertaining for the value & volume of stories..
