Publisher's Summary

Aliens.

That's right. I said it. 

I know - it sounds stupid to me also. I'm a psychologist (sort of), so you'd think I'd be able to reason my way out of this mess. Except the reality is that I've been abducted to become their breeder, and it doesn't take an advanced degree to recognize this is all sorts of jacked up. 

But I digress. 

Apparently, these aliens are on the brink of extinction and need me and my fellow captives to repopulate. Yay us. I guess it's time to figure out an escape plan before they knock me up. I'll be back later. 

Hopefully.

A good book made awful by the narrator

I love this book. It's fun and quirky and just an enjoyable read. The narrator was a huge disappointment, She seemed incapable of giving each character their own "voice" so it was very flat and she just seemed totally uninterested in the narration. I will make it a point to not purchase any book with this narrator again.

Heroine is pathetic

“Heroine” is kidnapped and held in prison cell. Book barely started and she is already aroused by a stranger who kidnapped her. She goes to his room to sleep with him and happily goes back to her cell to spend the rest of the time. She is kidnapped and called primitive/she gets hurt and so on, but she is focused on getting laid that she doesn’t question how the women are being treated. I can’t stand pathetic people with no self value. The heroine is pathetic and only cares for penis.

It’s not terrible

This book didn’t have many fantastic reviews to go off of. I thought the idea behind the book was good so I bought it. Now I’m about halfway through it and it has good qualities and has some things left to be desired.
This story feels like it was fleshed out in the authors head but not all of it made its way to the page. There are aspects between the two main characters that would make more sense as time passes, except the concept of time passing is convoluted. The way it seems everything happens within a day maybe two. I enjoyed the female lead not being crazy in the hackneyed way of “omg aliens let’s freak and never get a handle on it until they see the amazing goods a alien man is packing” I like the humor used to deal with the situation and the wanting to comfort others.
The relationship / feelings of the main characters definitely could be more fully explained and given time to develop.
I understand the women are stolen for procreation And I like the clinical way they go about it, it makes sense for this type of story. What I wish was available was the thoughts behind the male character and more analysis from the female lead if we can’t have the male leads perspective.

There are also characters that just show up and the female lead seems to know them and have a background with them while I’m sitting here thinking I missed a chapter, like who is this alien dude?

In the end I don’t know if I’ll continue this book but I know I won’t return it. Returning books makes the authors go without payment and that’s horse hockey in my opinion. So even if I don’t finish it I’ll definitely be keeping it.

Great new series

I'm always on the lookout for books/series like this - short, sexy, and action packed. This book hits all those notes and more. I decided to try it out after listening to the 2nd Hearts of Stone book which had a tie in of characters and I was not disappointed.

There is a lot of awareness/perceptiveness in the characters which can come off as a bit unbelievable, but given the FMC and friends age and education (and modern times), I think it works. Plus it moves the story along without unnecessary drama or exposition.

I like Jessica Schly as the narrator. I think she did a good job of keeping the characters separate from each other and acting out the scenes without going overboard.

If you do listen to this book and find it just ok, I would encourage you to listen to book 2 in the series before passing judgement. Book 2 is Morgan's story and it was so very entertaining from beginning to end.

Narrator was alright..

The narrator was alright, but struggled to do different voices for the different characters. It was kinda hard to tell the difference. But I loved the story, I personally read the whole series before buying the audio version. Totally recommend reading it! But not so much with audible with this narrator. Sorry

It was okay.

I'm not a fan of books about submissive whiny women, but I believe the best friend's will probably be my type of protagonist.

Pleasantly surprised

I was totally expecting to be let down by the storyline and character development, but this book actually did a very good job in a few short hours. It's definitely better than a lot of other short romances I've listened to. I've already bought the second book in the series and I'm genuinely excited to find out how the story continues. Well done.

Sweet and sexy

There’s some reviews that aren’t happy with the narration of this book. I found nothing wrong with it at all. I’ve listened to many that were so much worse. The book itself was pretty good, it was as most sci-fi romance books go. Sexy parts were very good, but not erotic. Could have been more towards erotic and it wouldn’t bother me. So, if this is the type of book you like, it has all the bells and buzzers. A short sweet happy ever after.

Pretty good

This book was funny; the private thoughts and banter between Lia and Varek was great. The narrator did a good job with characters. Storyline was typical of many paranormal romances. On to the next book!

Nicely done

The narrator did a wonderful job which made the book flow nicely. The storyline was also well done.
Excited to listen to the next book in this series.
