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.

SO DANG GOOD!!!

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

Ok... if you have ever read one of my reviews...you 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!

Wow, just WOW!

Would you consider the audio edition of Grim to be better than the print version?

Definitely yes, even though I've not read the print.

Any additional comments?

I got this audio book based on a review from a member I follow. It popped up in my email as a raving review. As I do like a good sifi romance, and the book sounded pretty cool I bought it for a credit. Boy, am I glad I did!!!

Admittedly this is my first full scale audio book with sound effects. And all I can say is WOW! It is/ was absolutely the coolest thing! Lol, now I want all my audio books to have sound effects!

I noticed on Good Reads this book had a lot of typos and mistakes in the writing that turned people off. This being an audio book that's not really a problem. Although there where a few glitches in the performance that should have been fixed during production. It wasn't enough to turn me off the story.

I greatly enjoyed the interchanging male/ female narrators for male/ female characters. And given the huge amount of different characters in this book I believe they did an excellent job of giving them all different voices. I think Jennings did a slightly better job then James did though. As a few of James male voices sounded too similar and a little funny sounding (almost lisped). I really wasn't sure I liked Grims whisper/ growlish voice either, because I found it harder to discern emotion in it. But it's sound is explained so I was fine with that.

Like I said the sound effects where awesome in the background. As there is very little world building in this story (much to my disappointment), they bring a level of description to the story that it would suffer greatly without. It helps you to build the setting in your mind, through sound, that let's your imagination fill in the rest. I could buy a recording of the ship background noise and listen to that all the time! I'm not sure why but I loved that noise! The only time it bothered me was when they where inside and you could hear birds. On the planet I could deal as I imagined the palace as more open like, but on earth in the house it was just irritating. But only for the 5 min. they where there. All else was amazing!

The story was refreshingly different. Still an instalove romance (a little weird as they are kidnapped), but there was plenty of relationship building so it made it less weird, I think. Lol, that probably doesn't make any sense but at the moment I'm sick of the instalove romance thing. BUT I really liked this story, SO I just delt with it. It does get better, and better as it goes on. I can't wait for the next book to be released as well as more of this author's work!

Definitely worth a credit!

WOW!!!

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

GET THIS BOOK IF YOU LOVE SCI FI

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.

Great!

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