Publisher's Summary

One minute I’m walking back home from a nightclub. The next, I’m waking up in a cage. 

Abducted by aliens. Given to an alien race. Put up for auction. But instead of being sold to the highest bidder, I'm rescued by one of the Brutal Ones: the biggest, baddest bullies in the universe.

But it's not a rescue. Not really. My rescuer makes it clear he wants something in return for saving my life....

...an Omega.

Me.

Intriguing, Steamy & Has A Very Swoon Worthy Hero

This was a very good book and I really enjoyed it. This kicks-off an intriguing new omegaverse series that I think offers a lot of potential. I felt the book was well written and in my opinion, it reads quickly and smoothly. I liked Khan a lot. He was certainly intense, hot and totally alpha, but I also thought there was a true underlying sweetness to him that really appealed to me and it melted my heart. I could easily feel for him and found him very, very swoon worthy. Emma on the other hand, I struggled with. There were many reasons to sympathize with her and I did. I could even be understanding with most of her feelings. However, I'd be lying if I didn't admit that she frustrated and annoyed me. I blame my practical side but, whether she wanted to admit it it or not she was so incredibly lucky because the situation she was in could have been a billion times worse. Her fierce insistence to be unhappy and avid determination to be blind to things that were so incredibly obvious just grated on my nerves. Ultimately, I did not care for her. You can expect lots of steam mixed with emotion, drama, action and a bit of kink as you enjoy this book. I liked the narrator's voice and found it pleasing to listen to. The performance given was well done and made it easy to become immersed in this book.

Off to a good start

Storyline is similar to previous storylines of other authors in this genre; but still interesting. The book could use a female narrator for female characters; Jasper does a good job with male characters. I like Khan, he is a bit rough around the edges but hot. I can see interesting spin offs involving the other kings in this series. I look forward to listening!

It was ok

The romance was good but it really didn’t have suspense or drama all it pretty much had was lots of sec wish is ok but after a while you want some kind of story line. Also Emma was very annoying and whiny. I hope the next book is better. But nice start. Keep trying

Understanding

Emma finds out she is an omega to an alien king, Khan. Her duty is to sire heirs. Having no choice when she accidently falls in a portal on an alien planet has her missing her life and Earth. It isn't until given a chance to return to her homeworld does Emma realize what Khan means to her.
This is my first time listening to Jasper Woodcock. I found his voice wonderful. He put passion and individuality to the characters.

Real disappointment

There is no story just SEX! Don't get me wrong i love a good romance and expect lust and sex but not 2 minutes in with out even knowing each others name? then the rest of the book they are at it every chapter, the main H does nothing but whine and complain yet wants sex every minute?? then the narrator can not do a female voice so it's like 2 guys are getting it on ugh! they really need a male and female narrator for this series and a story!!! what a waste of $14

Emma and Khan

This was a great alien abduction romance. This story was intriguing and the narration was spot on. Emma is a strong character and her story was interesting. Khan wants heirs but gets so much more. This has a HEA and I am excited to listen to the new story.

Good, but not great

I like this story overall and I think the series has potential. I just wanted a bit more from it and I can't quite place what is missing, but it just felt incomplete or lacking as an Omegaverse story. For me, the Omegaverse bar was set with Milana Jack's sic-fi Alpha Hord series, so I'll admit I'm might be a bit bias here. Regardless, it caught my interest and plan on listening to the next book when it comes to Audible.

As for the narration, I like Jasper Woodcock, but wish there was dual narration with a female narrator. Most of the book was from the FMC perspective so it would have been nice to have that more feminine voice. However, since Vitruvian Sound is involved, I'll count it as good fortune that the horrible voice of Natasha Lawless isn't part of this production. Like Jasper, she seems to be a studio favorite and she is just not good and I'll bail on the series if she gets added.

Since I'm complaining now, might as well add that Lee Savino seems to use Vitruvian for her books and honestly I wish she wouldn't. Much like all their other productions, you will find parts of the story repeat. It's not nearly as bad as it could be, but once again their quality control is inept.

TL;DR - it's good enough that I'll listen to the next book if the sound production company doesn't fck it up.

Great audio book!

Emma goes through a portal, and winds up on an alien planet. She wakes up in a cage. Emma, and other females are auctioned off to the highest bidder. Emma is the lucky one, she is rescued by an alpha. Con realizes that Emma is his fated mate. Emma does not understand that esteris, means going into heat. Con goes into rut, and has sex with Emma several times a day. Emma is taken to the palace to live with Con. She is not happy, and wants to go back home to earth. What happens next? You have to listen to the audio book! The narrator did a fantastic job with the characters. The book is very engaging, and enjoyable. I received this audio book to review.

Been There, Done That

Kept falling asleep. Heard it all before. Narrator did a good job. Didn't try to use falsetto for women's voice, just lowered and softened his tone which worked better.

Great start for a new series

This is a great start for a new Omegaverse series.

After initially being frightened by her kidnappers with stories of the “brutal ones,” Emma’s introduction to Khan was anything but sweet. It definitely lived up to the brutal stories regarding his species.

As a king on his planet, Khan has been searching the universe for an omega that would be compatible with his species. When he finds Emma, he realizes that not only has he found an Omega, he has found his mate.

This book definitely sizzles. As any truly good Omegaverse romance should. Khan and Emma are well suited.

I look forward to the next in this series. While Khan was a kind, well adjusted individual, the next king came across as quite the spoiled, entitled rich kid. I expect he will have quite a time as his omega brings him to heel.

The narrator of this book did a great job!
