Publisher's Summary

Can two broken people release their demons, open their hearts, and find lasting love?

Petra's strong, take-no-prisoners attitude is severely challenged when she's abducted by aliens, destined to be sold as a sex slave. To escape, she needs the help of the most irritating, hunky alien male this side of the Milky Way. Their chemistry is off the charts despite the fact that Shadow can be an annoying dick.

Sold into the gladiator arena by his own parents, the only emotion this alien knows is anger. Until he meets Petra, whose grit, as well as her delightful body, sets him on fire. She isn't interested in anything more than a physical relationship, until she realizes there might be something worth fighting for beneath his cocky exterior.

If you like angsty alien alphas ripe for redemption and the kick-ass heroines who can tame them, then join Petra and Shadow in this stand-alone second book of the sci-fi romance Galaxy Gladiators Series.

Contains steamy sex scenes, hot muscular aliens who've been damaged and patched back together, and badass heroines. Guaranteed no cliffhanger, no cheating, and a happily ever after.

Buy Shadow today to step into this world of darkness, humor, and romance!

Stop everything and listen to this book right now!

I can’t believe Alana Khan is a new writer, she’s that good. I’ve read and listened to her stories of love and adventure and they’re super exciting!
Everything is perfect; her world building is REAL, the dialogue between characters revealing, the events breathtaking.
I’d recommend her books to anyone who loves
sci-fi romance.

Lust and hormones

I get aggravated when erotica is disguised as romance. When it started out, I thought that was what this book was going to be all about. So I seriously considered to stop listening. But I continued on because I liked the first book of the series so much. It’s a good thing I did because as the book progressed it was made clear why it was all about lust and hormones at the beginning. Sex is so much easier than romance. In the end, I did not enjoy this book as much but I like the continuation of the story.

A bit dry but still interesting

The storyline was fine, it was a bit dry but held an important message about redemption and survival. The narrator did not do a good job with female characters; his voice never changed which is probably the reason for the story seeming a bit dry and lifeless. Could use a female narrator to team up with Zachery.

Another sweet hea

Two damaged people work there way through to an hea. Loved the story and I enjoyed Zachary’s narration. I quite like romances with a male narrator. I’ll have to read the next story as it isn’t in audible.

Ok

The storyline was good but the characters were not developed with real detail. I feel letdown.

Wonderful!!

Wonderful!!
Shadow, the second book in the Galaxy Gladiators Alien Abduction Romance, is an enjoyable sci-fi romance. The storyline and the characters are fantastic. Petra and shadow are fabulous characters, they are engaging with distinct personality traits.

Petra wakes up, leaning that she has been abducted, tagged, and caged by aliens to be sold on the auction block to the highest bidder. To top it off, since childhood, she has suffered from PTSD, her coping mechanism is to isolate herself and avoiding intimacy. Shadow is an irritable cyborg, disliked by everyone, he is also a recently freed slave that desire companionship. I liked how the two meet, form a connection, and fall in love. The characters show capacity for growth; Shadow's building affection for Petra, makes him want to better version of himself.

Zachary Zaba did an excellent job with the narration. He portrayed the character's personalities and emotions very well. Overall, this was a very entertaining sci-fi romance with intriguing plot and characters. I was given a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
