Unique SciFi Alien Romance

This is an enjoyable SciFi romance. The story was interesting and kept my attention throughout. It is a fairly short listen with under 5 hours of listening time. Zorban meets his soulmate when she is only 18 months old. An unusual costume for the prince to pick his soulmate from babies and then having to wait until she is an adult to marry her.

The narration was good and brought the story to life.

Zorban's soulmate is kidnapped right after he meets her. Although they search for her she is nowhere to be found. The story quickly fast forwards to when he has been living on Earth for several years and has given up ever seeing his soulmate.

The story is predictable but the characters don't figure everything out until the very end and it concludes with a sweet HEA.

Outer Space Hotness

This was not one of my favorite types of story as I am not a big Sifi fan, but held my interest all the way. A mild tearjerker full of mystery. Why did his soulmate disappear, where did she go at such a young age, and when would Zoltan ever find love again? Zoltan is forced to leave his home planet by his Uncle who wishes to be King. Due to a crazy law that says a King must have a soulmate, Zoltan's Uncle plots against him by kidnapping the young child destined to be Zoltan's mate, then forces him to leave the planet. Zoltan ends up on Earth where he starts a new life. At his friends wedding he meets a captivating woman and his life changes, again. Steamy and exciting read. The narrator Randi Johnson, does a great job of bringing the voices to life. He is vastly improving with each new book. I look forward to new books and listens from them both.

Enjoyed

The narrator did a great job expressing people's moods into their speech, he was easy to understand and really helped pull the listener in. I liked the concept and plot but the two mc's seemed a little cold if you don't mind pardoning the pun lol When you're talking soulmates and a love like no other I would expect more romance to the story. But overall I enjoyed it and will look for more of T.J. Quinn's stories.

Enjoyed this Short Story

I received this audiobook free for an honest review. This alien romance was well written giving the listener a little bit of everything, suspense, thrill and romance. I thought the beginning was different when the Prince meets his sole mate who is only 18 months old. Weird. However, the rest of the story makes sense as it continues. This is one story that you want to stick to until the end. The narrator did a great job with the characters and their personalities. Some male narrators do a terrible job with the female parts, but this narrator didn't try too hard and the female characters came off perfect.

Interesting Story - Love the Narration

After years of frustration searching for his soulmate Zorban finally finds the one. Then she disappears without a trace. Zorban cannot claim the throne without a soulmate and so he travels to earth. Although I'm not a huge SciFi fan I really enjoyed this book by author T.J. Quinn. What I loved most was narrator Randi Johnson. I felt as if I was watching a movie. He brought characters to life in a way few narrators do. I hope Quinn and Johnson team up again and again. When/If they do, I'll be listening.

LOVED IT!

I loved it. The narration was great and kept you entertained. The author did a good job with the character builds and plot. I read this book because any time I'm given the opportunity to listen to one of Randi Johnson's (the narrator) performances, I won't refuse it. I have listened to 4 books that were narrated by Randi Johnson and I can guarantee you'll be amazed at how he gives the story that extra flair!

Sweet Scifi Romance

Interesting custom on finding one's soulmate. A short read but packed with suspense, sexy scenes and even some action. I enjoyed learning how Zorban and Leah found each other again after Leah was kidnapped right after Zorban finally found out she's his soulmate. Randi's narration was great and kept me entertained. I was able to differentiate each character as they were given their own voice.

Hot Aliens!

Our story starts out on a galaxy far away and ends up on earth. We have the whole soul mates thing. Hidden secret magic powers (seriously, this is not a spoiler. Pretty open-) and I had those seconds of wanting to shake her and say “JUST TELL HIM-“
Randi Johnson’s vocal talents are amazing. I was very impressed with his ability to lend characteristics to different characters. Very impressive!

Good book

The H and h were so much alike that it was funny, although neither of them knew initially. This was a good story. It kept me listening to find out what would happen next and when they would figure it out. Randi Johnson did a good job with the narration.

A sweet SciFi romance

This is a sweet romance story. The storyline is well thought out, and the characters are fairly well developed. There are sexy times, but nothing I would call erotica. There is some action toward the end of the book, and of course we get our HEA.

The one thing that really got on my nerves was the constant use of dialogue being described as "in a cold way" or "in a cold manner" or some other variation using the word "cold."

I thought the narrator did a very good job. His inflections were spot on, his characters were differentiated well, and it was a very smooth performance. As with a lot of male narrators, his female characters were not quite as easily identified, but he did as well as some I have heard.

Cute

This had the feel of a typical Sci-fi alien romance, to me. I liked how the author brough Zorban and Leah together although I expected there to be more magnetism between them for a number of reasons.

I enjoyed this narrator's voice for a sci-fi alien romance. I think he is a perfect choice for these kinds of stories. His voice does kind of remind me a little bit of George Jetson from the cartoon the Jetsons. I think his performance took this story from a 4 star to a 5 star. The narrator made this a fun listen.

Zorban's Destiny

I thought this story had a pretty good plot and was promising. I felt that it was fairly predictable throughout. However, I did enjoy the story in the long run. It just was missing something.

I do think the narrator also has promise. He was really great during the battle scene. His deep voice was really fun when he belted out, "Never!" during a fight seen.

Forced to make a new life was the right decision

I received this audible book from Audiobook Obsession for a fair and honest review. The story was fun, fast paced, romantic and of course the best part had a HEA. I enjoy Sci-fi and PNR, could relate to storyline, Zorbans loss of his soulmate Lena having to leave because of the circumstances and not wanting to return making a new life for himself on another planet. Was happy for him finding a love with Leah. Leah (Lena) herself was an interesting character making ice sculptures and her extraordinary abilities. I think Zorban knew deep down when he jumped into the truck with her that snowy night that she was more than just a pretty woman he was attracted to. Want to believe that anyway.
I was only dissatisfied with one thing and that was the narrator, I don’t think he was a good fit for this story. Don’t get me wrong he had an appealing voice just not for this book.

sci fi romance

An alien romance with a good storyline with a good flow. Loved these characters and their dynamic. Zorban is a prince who loses his soul mate and leaves his planet in a hope to recover from the disappointment and heartbreak. Not to worry, there is a HEA. I love the turmoil that come across so realistic. A great job all around!

Nice

This story was a nice new scenery when talking about MF books.

The heroine is strong and she is the one saving our hero! Yep, he save him from an almost death experience. And I must say I love it. Another trope I love is close proximity and yep, this one has it to! The hot scenes I find a little boring but until this day I didn't find a MF get-down-to-business-scene that really does it for me. I'm so used to all those sexy stuff in MM books, that vanilla straight s*x in books doesn't appeal to me anymore.

This isn't Randi Johnson's best work, he was a newbie on this one if I remember. So the narration is a little bit off, but good enough to enjoy the story. And his voice is sexy as hell, so that helps :D

I was gifted with this audiobook and none review was expected from me
