This series gets better and better. I love that the women in this stories are head strong,independent. And know how to kick some Warriors ass. This story is filled with witty banter, humor and just the right amount of hot steaming sex. The narrator did an excellent job. I can't wait for book 3. If you like alien fantasy romance down load this series. S E Smith is an amazing writer and she deliverers great storylines. So worth a credit

When I'm in the mood for a sextraterrestrial listen I turn to S.E. Smith because over and over again she has captured my imagination with her various loveable Alpha Aliens. And, especially in this series, she fills the listen with interesting characters for you to care about so, when you finish the book, you can't wait until the next one comes out so you can, once again, dip into this alternate Universe.... where women are worshiped by gorgeous Prime Warriors.
This book continues where Tink and J'kar's story left off and now Tink wants her Mom close by so J'kar's brother Borj is only too happy to take on the mission and bring Tink's Mom to her.... but he also has a mission of his own. Since seeing a picture of Tink and her two Sisters he has been obsessed with one of them - Hannah and he's sure she's his bonded mate. But unfortunately he doesn't quite pick the best time to get acquainted.... and he's not prepared for the painful welcome he gets when he creeps in on the feisty Hannah unannounced and in the middle of the night. Hannah had a very traumatic experience in her teens and now prefers a fairly solitary existence photographing wildlife in dangerous and deadly environments. And, after her trauma, she's made sure she can look after herself by taking self defence lessons which happily come in very handy when a huge intruder thinks he can calmly break into Cosmos's home.
This results in some fun chapters and, although Borj doesn't get the welcome he was expecting,..... he does get the positive answer he was hoping for - the beautiful Hannah is his mate - but unfortunately she'll need a lot of convincing on that issue. Thankfully Borj gets help from an unlikely source..... her loving parents who are fun, sexually very open minded and are all too willing for this tender but strong and protective Prime Warrior to claim their daughter. They're also very keen to go and visit Tink on Baade which makes for witty banter, sly sexual innuendos and some fun visualizations because these two become well loved sexual Gurus to any Prime citizen with questions.
Hannah and Borj's romance flows along imperfectly perfect with touching tender scenes as well as passionate steamy scenes too. There's drama and angst because, despite Borj's heartfelt promises to protect his Hannah, she is kidnapped not once but twice.... once by good men with good intentions and once by very very bad men with nothing but bad intentions - which make for some tension filled scenes . Dual, and occasionally multiple, POV's and this fantastic fantasy world, along with it's many inhabitants, are all wonderfully brought to life by a very good narrator. And it leaves you eagerly anticipating your next visit with them.
Worth a credit? This listen was very enjoyable, was really entertaining, was a hoot, was much more than I'd hoped for and, in my little world, was, and is, definitely creditworthy. IMO, this would best be listened to after book 1 which has the initial introductions to all the characters, explains the Gateway, tells the backstory to their race, outlines their dilemmas and shows what a super-caring race these Prime Aliens are.

This is a better book than the first, though I would recommend book 1 before this as this book follows on immediately from the (unsatisfactory) end of book 1.
The characters are better and the plot has much more to it. The balance of plot to sex scenes is about right.
Fairly predictable mix of lovers falling out, peril for the heroine and some quite funny scenes and some raunchy bedroom action. The book pans out pretty much as you would expect.
I really liked the character of Hannah. I also thought Borj was a better defined person than J'kar in the first book
I still dont like the narrator I don't think the male voices are good at all but the female voices are OK.
I enjoyed the book and will definitely be downloading the next one
I loved all S.E. Smith's books but in audio format they are even better. I couldn't recommend this author more. She's one of my favourites and in audio format you get a real feel for the emotions of the characters.
