Publisher's Summary

Are they meant to be mated?

Urie is a leader and general of the Ura-Than race. He has no time to find a mate to create an heir to replace him as leader one day.

Urie gets his friend Reli of the Celestial Mates agency to find him a mate. The only thing is that Reli's agency uses some methods that probably would not be accepted in certain cultures, such as bidding.

Samantha was the one he lusted. She was just a human, but the most beautiful one he had ever seen. He needed to get her. At any cost. Urie knew he had to outbid the rest to get her.

Getting adjusted to her new life is hard for Samantha. Urie has to keep on planning how to defend his own people against the enemy, X, and he soon learns of a possible traitor amongst his own that may even go all the way to the top of his most trusted generals and captains.

What will happen between these two mates? Is their fate sealed? Or will one of their needs have to give if push comes to shove?

The Blue Alien's Mate is part of the Celestial Mates series and is a standalone, full-length science fiction romance novel. There are no cliffhangers, no cheating, and a guaranteed happy ending!

good

Any additional comments?

This audiobook was given to me for a honest unbiased review. This was good, not great but not horrific either. Had potential, but the delivery was not great.

DOESN'T DELIVER IN HEAT, ROMANCE OR VOCALS

Any additional comments?

I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.<br/><br/>I expected a steamy and raw alien abduction adventure but didn't get it. What I got was a romp of a story that quickly moved from one scene to (often unrelated) another. Beginning with a battle to meet Urie, going to meeting Samantha as she's captured during a run. And then back and forth. The opening battle provided only one component that carried through and even that added nothing to the story. As far as the romance... Samantha unequivocally fought against any submission, and yet one sight of Urie in the shower and she was (more or less) submissively in love. That lead to one sex encounter, over pretty darn quick, and she's happily playing house. There's turmoil as Urie sets off to save his family. Not to spoil anything, I'll just say I never felt he had Samantha as his #1 priority.<br/><br/>The book kept me listening because it moved quickly. It failed to evoke any strong feelings, though. Stronger moral statements could have been made against racism & slavery. Or it could have been Erotica. Something.<br/><br/>Sorry, but Max Lehnen didn't cut it for me. Maybe he's do better with a comedic verse... the narration was so "once-upon-a-timey" (ugh). I can't think of a word to describe it. He sounded "old" or "preachy" or "singsong." Looking into his other (many) works, the books get good reviews but his narration most often doesn't.<br/><br/>My final answer? Comme ci comme ça. Passable.

Good story

I enjoyed this story, but there was just something about this narrator doing the female voice that turned me off!

It was good.

What made the experience of listening to The Blue Alien's Mate the most enjoyable?

I liked the love they where'd for their baby.

Samantha was my favorite character. She was strong in the face of great obstacles.

Which character – as performed by Max Lehnen – was your favorite?

I think he portrayed Urie the best

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

I was able to find places to stop listening when I had to, like when the author switched from one point of view to the other.

Not easy to listen to..

What would have made The Blue Alien's Mate better?

Maybe the story could be written in 3rd person. The transition between the two main character was not clear at time and it made it hard to follow the story. At best this had a lot of potential but the dialogue and 1st person view just take away from the story.

What could Zara Zenia have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

the first person view definitely is very distracting

What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

I think the story would have been better if the narrator was a female. At time I could not tell who was telling the story.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment, the story had a lot of potential. I really like the premise of the story.

Any additional comments?

I really thought this might be a fun book to listen to but at time I struggle to follow the story not knowing who point of view is the story about. <br/><br/>“I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.”
