Publisher's Summary

King Grim Vasteri is the strongest and most feared warrior in the Tornian Empire. He is the King of Luda, blood brother to the Emperor, and his line will die with him. He will have no offspring for no female would join with him for once he was scarred he was considered "unfit". The Tornian Empire has been dying ever since the great infection caused the birth of females to become a rarity. Since then they have been searching the known universes for compatible females. The Emperor's discovery of a compatible female on a slave ship changed that. He'd ordered Grim to find his Empress's home world so more "unprotected" females could be obtained, knowing Grim would never be allowed to Join with one.
Lisa Miller is a widowed mother of two little girls, Carly and Miki. Her husband died just a year ago, after a long battle with cancer and she misses him immensely. Friends want her to start dating again but in her heart, she knows there isn't a man on the planet she could love like her Mark. Who could love their girls like their own. Therefore, she'll stay alone.
When Lisa is discovered "unprotected" at her husband's grave, she wakes on an alien ship heading for an alien world. Refusing to accept this she confronts the large males, demanding she be returned to her children. Seeing his chance to have a female, Grim agrees to accept and protect her offspring, if she agrees to Join with him and only him. Realizing this is the only way she can retrieve her children Lisa agrees, and the Tornian Empire changes forever.

Wowza! This book was so dang good....

Ok... if you have ever read one of my know I hate dual narration.... UNLESS it is done like this book... Female reads female parts and male reads male parts... This was so good... but this book had a little something extra that I am just not use too... SOUND EFFECTS!!!!

I must admit at first...I hate it... the birds chirping and the hum of the spaceship was driving me batting...but by chapter two...when someone knocked on the door and you hear the knock first then the narration...well I must admit, it really made this book stand out... I fell in love with it... It was amazing... so kudos for this brilliant version of narration and sound effects...

No on to the review... GRIM... I so want a GRIM... Although he was scarred from a battle he won against 8 other warriors, Grim was looked upon as "not worthy" to mate due to his scars... Oh, did I mention he is KING GRIM... but nope, he got scares so the snoody women of his planet didn't want him. So when Grim has to go find mate(able) Earth women because his brother the emperor's new wife accidentally told of her home planet...Grim is in luck! He forces Lisa to mate with him in order to pick up her girls which were left back on earth... She does, because there is no way she was leaving her girls...

OK.. this is when the story picks up, because WOMEN are special, as they are rare on Grim's planet... Now King Grim has got three!!! Man this book was so darn good... I can't wait for book 2 to come on Audible...

Narration was Amazing!! So enjoyable... Credit well spent...

This is a buy, sale or credit... Great book!

The action and tension kicks in right from the start and doesn't stop until the very end and, if you're a sci-fi fan, you will have been captivated by all the world-building of this new alien species and, if you're a romance fan, you will have been ensnared by a sweet and tender love story. With it's hunky colorful alpha Warriors (who outnumber females 200 to 1) which is why feisty Lisa finds herself captured, along with other women, and on board a spaceship heading for deep space and far far away from her small children. But help is at hand when the giant bronzed and scarred Grim steps in to offer her his protection and to go back and get her children but there's a catch..... she must 'join' with him and no other.

From there the layers build and build to create an entertaining, fascinating and hypnotising storyline that will have you transfixed on this new Warrior species with their strange culture, pride and honor, expectations, strengths and vulnerabilities. Then they'll have you swooning at their humble gentle caring attitudes towards women and their hopes and dreams to become protectors and fathers.

Unfortunately, Lisa's transition into their world isn't an easy one as behind the scenes are greedy enemies whose plans and deeds have been deadly in their bid to overthrow the Emperor. Angst, drama, sex, loving touching scenes, a loveable H & H and various other secondary characters make this and exciting listen. Told from both POV's but the true genius is the dual narration because it comes across as actual conversations between the male/female leads and the sound effects, which I didn't think I was going to like in the beginning, actually grew on me in the end.

Worth a credit? Yes definitely, although I did think a previous book was missing as Wray (the Emperor) and his human mate Kim were actually the first couple to find the 'compatibility' between species and their difficult story was hinted at many times during this listen. So I went on to the authors website to see if there was a book missing and I am happy to report that their story is actually book 2 in the series. I don't know why they did it this way round (maybe the reason will become clear after I've listened to that book) but I think I would've preferred it to have been Wray and Kim's love story first. This is an author I'll be watching out for from now on.

This is the first time that I have written a review but after listening to this book, 3 times, I just had.
The Tornian Empire where the story takes place and where women are few and far between and Earth women are much sought after. Enter our hero Grim, a 7 foot+, very muscular and extremely hot warrior and Lisa a 5ft nothing earth woman
Yes the sex scenes are explicit but very well done and there is actually a very good story as well.
I won't put any more as it would spoil the book but I have just bought the second book called Wray
A great story, sex romance, what more can a girl ask for

Would you listen to Grim again? Why?

Yes I would listen to Grim again it's a wonderful story and an amazing book. I've re-read the book every time a new one is release just to enjoy reading it again and again. Now that I've gotten the audiobook it just means I can sit back close my eyes and imagine this in my mind again and again.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Grim?

When she stood on the floor of the claiming area and claimed him as hers ..... I wanted to get up and beat them myselves with how they treated them... Really made you feel for the characters in the book.

What does Commodore James and Laura Jennings bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Having a story read by a male and female narrator brings and added dimension to the story. You can actually hear the characters interacting and imagine the scenes taking place much easier.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes very definately. I love M.K. Eidems works and have all her books to date. She's an amazing author and I'm looking forward to the new releases.

Any additional comments?

M.K. Eidem is a relatively new Sci-Fi Romance author who I was introduced to when a friend bought me one of her books. I've bought everything she has released to date as her books keep you wanting more and you can't wait for the next installment of the story. My only complaint ..... she doesn't write them quick enough. But in all honesty what an amazing author and if this is just the beginning I can't wait to see what happens further down the road when she's more established.

It would be much better for different voice actors for different people, however I do love the sound affects.
