This audiobook was given to me for a honest unbiased review. This sci-fi romance was great. Loved how the Aliens had to learn Earth's culture. This is a different take on other sci-fi romances where the human woman has to go to a different planet and learn different culture. This difference makes this book stand out. It is good that not all of the book was sex, there are sex scenes, but this is not a full out erotica porn situation, but a romance!! Smut has its place, but for those who want a little more romance than sex, this is perfect for you.

Good start to a series. Entertaining, fun and enjoyable short story. It's a good story for those days when you want something a little different. The Warriors from Orba are refugees from outer space looking for a safe place to live.
Romance, a bit of action, humor, aliens, mental abilities, strange new world, and a HEA.
While the story was entertaining, engaging and interesting enough to keep my attention it would have been nice to have a little of their backstory before they landed on earth. As well as a bit more of the relationship between Allison and Benzen. But then again, there is only so much you can fit into a shorter story.
It started out with a bit of action then slowed down for a while to focus on the warriors acclimating to their new surroundings then picked up again with more action.
The "innocence" of the Orba warriors in their new surroundings was humorous to hear. Having to learn the "human" ways of life and trying to adopt to their surroundings gave the story a lighter tone in between the action.
It is the first in the series so not all the lingering questions are answered in this book. I am actually looking forward to the next book in the series. It synopsis sounds really good.
Sierra Kline did a good job with the narration. Pleasant voice. Easy to listen to for long periods of time. Good character voices even her male voices are good. Clearly spoken with a nice pace. She was able to make the characters come to life. Very enjoyable.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator or publisher.

I found this story very novel and different to the usual alian romances I read. Benzen is not your typical hunky 7 feet tall alian. He starts of as looking like a seemingly wimpy lost weird foreigner. He and his friends enter a supermarket looking for food and meet Alison who is the checkout girl. She takes pitty on them and helps them find a place to live. Some of the scenes are bizare and so funny. I truly can't understand how nobody questions their strange looks as being odd. Alison must be more than a bit thick lol. I defy anyone not to be in stitches over the scenes where she is taking them shopping for clothes and where they are trying to understand human food. There are some very serious moments as well, it is not all good. There is sadness as well. I think it is a brilliant book and I am very glad to have listened to it. It gave me a lot to think about.
