Publisher's Summary

He's cocky, seven feet tall, scaly, and green. She's been burned in the past. Can an alien and a human woman find true love together?

Burned by an ex, the last thing Evie wants is a husband, especially a seven-foot-tall, green-skinned alien. But when she applies to the Extraterrestrial Matchmaking Service on a dare, she's paired with Vork and sent to Crakair as a mail-order bride. Vork is big and dangerous, and he hits all her buttons. Passion sparks between them, but does she dare trust this sexy alien with her heart?

As a career spacefleet commander, the last thing Vork has time for is a mate. But after a mix-up, he's matched with a human female. He decides he'll produce a child with her, then get back to his life in the stars. Until he touches Evie and a matebond flares on his palm. When a rival warlord challenges Vork and Evie is the prize, Vork will have to decide: give Evie up, or battle to the death to claim her as his bride.

Vork is book one in the Mail-Order Brides of Crakair series, but it can be enjoyed as a stand-alone.

Fully romance

The story was good for what it was. It is truly romance and erotic scenes with a little bit of hardship sprinkled in. I do like sci-fi romances but I prefer it be predominantly adventure with romance sprinkled in. The narrators did a good job. I won’t be pursuing the series.

Great!

I didn’t expect to enjoy this book as much as I did. The story was so so but the female narrator had a way of bringing it to life that kept me listening and enjoying the adventure. Sometimes the male narrator sounded a bit cartoonish but overall I thought it was a fun, little book.

Alien story nirvana!

I’ve read hundreds of Alien Romance… never have I hit 1 click buy on the next book so fast! Ava had spun the right combo of action and sci-fi and smexy and hilarity! Teddy Hamilton is an auto listen for me, that man could melt lava rocks! Tawnia is new to me, but she fell into the characters seamlessly! The variance she gave to Evie and Vork’s mother was stellar!

REAL LOVE IN AN ALIEN UNIVERSE

Terrific job by author, Ava Ross and narrator, Tawnia Murray who have not only honored but also surpassed the traditional Sci-fi romance formula, namely: Anything goes in space:...Just crank up the volume on the Action, Sex, and Love melodrama.
The context for this story IS certainly other worldly with some quirky twists.
There is plenty of heart-throbbing romance, and eroticism in which nearly everything throbs...joyfully graphic without ever becoming pornographic.
However, what sets this book apart is that it is written and performed so that the relationships between the earth brides and their gigantic, green scaled, well-endowed, alien, prospective hubbies are heart-warmingly familiar. They have been imbued with all the emotions and concerns we expect from real live, ordinary, human couples: hopes, fears, shy hesitation, daring horniness, awkward misunderstanding, flirtatious humor, wounded loss of trust and determined commitment...
As a result we end up identifying with and genuinely caring about these would be lovers...
The fact that they are navigating through a bizarre world where they might take a bath with sweat eating fishy creatures, head off to a living plant bed and get it on with highly tuned erotic appendages we all wish we had...just makes it all the more fun!
A wonderful, engaging experience...
Look forward to the rest of the series.
(I give the performance 5 stars despite the fact that Ms. Murray's "Co-narrator's" style is so jarringly different from her own buoyantly human tone that it often completely interrupts the story's flow.)

Okay

Not sure why but this story was a little boring; I was easily distracted from it. Storyline was much of the same in the genre; didn’t have enough action or drama to hold my attention. The guy on the cover could definitely hold my attention. Narrators were fine, the story could be better.

The story is way better than the synopsis

Just as it says above, I was a little turned off from this book by the synopsis that was given. However, after listening to the story the world is very unique and hero is a lot more interpersonal than expected. I’m not a fan of angsty books and this definitely was not an angst story as the synopsis led me to believe. With the female leads cat it was a very easy listen full of steamy scenes and bits of comedy. Definitely worth giving a try.

Funny, hot

The language barrier provided some great funny moments, and the steamy scenes were good. The book doesn’t go into depth for me to give it 4 stars, but it was cute. Instalove is hard to believe at the best of times, let alone when between two species.

Male narrator was better than the female one. She sounds like she should be an automated reading a menu of options on a customer services call.

Has a 30+ minute preview of the next book at the end, so it really is short.

it's okay

light hearted and cheesy romance. Female narrator is AWFUL. I have never heard someone read like it! I was convinced at times that it was an AI reading as she sounds so robotic. She also doesn't change her voice in the slightest for different characters so I became lost in parts. Got halfway before I couldn't stand to listen to her anymore. The other reviews must be bots or something because - just wow. Not even a personal taste situation, just objectively awful.

Enjoyable

This is a great storyline. With good strong characters I really enjoyed it. Learning how to love quickly it’s a great insta-love book. A brilliant performance from both narrators.

I'm just here for the smut!

Alien romance is not a genre I'm familiar with. In fact this was my first. It is absolutely cliché and cheesy, but I still could not put it down.

What I liked:

- The narrators were good, especially the male voice which did all kinds of things to my ovaries.

- Vork was an honourable man, an utterly gentleman, and a freak in the sheets. That ticks all of my boxes!

- The relationship was quite pure and genuine (no actual issues) so I could just enjoy them enjoying each other.

- The sex scenes were super steamy and very creative. I love them.


What I didn't like:

- The plot is lacking (both main and sub-plots). But if you just sit back and enjoy the smutty scenes then you'll soon forget that there is a world beyond the bedroom.

- It's extremely cheesy, even as far as the romance goes. But I forgave it and enjoyed the easy read.

I'm new to Alien romance but really enjoyed it

I thought the narration was great and I enjoyed the book. Good balance of romance, spice and story. I'll be adding the rest of the books in the series to my TBR list.

New author for me, was happy I tried her book!

This was a good beginning to a continuing series. Mail-order brides is quite a common theme in scifi romances but I like how well-rounded this story was.
Characters were likable and I only had one 'cringe' moment in the whole story. I think that's pretty good. 😉

The female narrator had a bit monotonous voice occasionally, but overall both did a good job.

I recommend trying this series, it's an easy listen and at least in this first book we get a long sneak peak to the next one..

Great

This story follows Evie and Vork and is the first in the Mail-Order Brides of Crakair series. Vork doesn’t have time for a bride and is annoyed with his mother for putting in the application until he meets his bride and she steals his heart. It’s an interesting time learning to understand each other which includes speech and cultural differences but the attraction is impossible to ignore and the sexual chemistry is off the charts.

exceptionally different

Let's face it, these alien stories are coming out left right and centre as the new popular trend in short steamy stories.
the exception with this series makes it unlike any other with the courtship rules etc.
it's a lovely story from the get go and well worth the read/listen.
the narrators are phenomenal and the little bits of humor thrown in here and there make it even more awesome.
you will love the authors play on words and the miscommunication between the characters

Loved it, read it

I laughed so much. This book was a joy to listen to. The narration was great and I’ve listened to a lot of books narrated by Teddy which is a pleasure to listen to.
I loved the book. And now I want to go back and see if there’s a book for Julia and axel as well as eagerly heading to get Bryk now.

Leave your brain at home

This is very much simplistic entertainment. I skipped the sex scenes, so can’t comment on them. There is pretty much no plot at all and a lot of stupid mistakes, which drove me crazy (eg: bugs which eat all dead skin, but not hair, which as is also dead cells). If you are OK with the above issues, then it is well performed and has a HEA
