Publisher's Summary

My name is Taylor, and damn but my life changed overnight. One moment I was just a regular girl working two jobs to pay my bills, and next thing you know, I'm uncovering secret metal disks at my boss's house. Now I'm reading minds, dream-walking and being saved from bad guys by Mr. Dark and Brooding.
That would be Ryder Langston, my new next-door neighbor. He's sex on legs but he's also a secret agent from another world-no joke. I believe him now because he dragged me back here "for my protection" after he discovered someone was trying to assassinate me on Earth. It isn't working out so well.
There's a war going on, one that's been fought for generations. Ryder's having trust issues (not that it's stopping us from falling into bed), and it turns out I'm connected here, if you know what I mean. The target on my back finally makes sense, but there's nowhere left to hide....

Taylor is working two jobs - as a Bartender and as an Office Assistant - she thinks she's got her life sorted out but it all comes crashing apart at about the same time as she meets her neighbour - the tall, dark, sexy as sin and handsome Ryder and the chemistry is out of this world.... literally. But, to begin with, he's just a face she thinks she sees amongst the crowd, a brooding presence at the back of the Bar or her skilled partner in her nighttime hot dreams however when they start talking it always leads to heated and sizzling arguments. Taylor's a funny, feisty and fiery character because she's had to look after herself all her life and won't be told what to do but she doesn't realise Ryan has become obsessed with her and her safety and is trying to keep her from getting killed..... by people and things she could never ever have imagined.

Slowly Ryan has to let his secrets out as Taylor becomes the innocent party caught up in a tangled Alien web and shows her his world where he is actually a Senior Officer from the Planet Te're where there's been vicious battles between two bitter factions. As much as Ryan wants to protect and trust Taylor he has a duty to protect his people too and must think of their safety but the lines becomes blurred the more he sees what a beautiful person Taylor is on the inside as well as on the outside. And Taylor has accidentally got hold of something precious that gives her the power to hear people's thoughts and feel their intentions which is what all the Aliens from Te're can do.... but somehow her abilities are 'maxed'. Which leads her into danger as it's sought after by an evil villain, enables her to dream walk, she can talk on the higher 'God' plain and, if their mental barriers are down, the sexual connection between Ryan and herself is heightened as they share each other's passionate thoughts.

This is a fantastic non-stop action packed Sci-Fi romance where I fell in love with the characters, the complex and complicated storyline and the funny, angst filled and verbal hot/cold sparring that went on between Taylor and Ryan before they finally learnt to trust each other. Which led to plenty of passion filled sex scenes as the sexy Alpha Alien gave in to his heart's desire.... one little Earthling woman who was about to shake his world. But there are the secondary plots of the War and the evil villain so there's kidnapping, murder, twists, suspense, a traitor, lots of drama, some "wow I didn't see that coming" moments and an unresolved ongoing base storyline that should continue in the next book/s. There are also a couple of secondary characters whose relationship is questionable (one is Taylor's best friend and room-mate) and other interesting characters who, I'm sure, will play more major parts.

Worth a credit? Told from Taylor's POV with some often funny inner thoughts, the narrator was ok, there was imaginative world-building imagery, a storyline where I hated to press the pause or stop button and the romance was written at such a nice pace and grew to be a very tender and sweet love story. So, YEAH well worth a credit.... especially for anyone seeking a hunky hot Alien who's loyal, protective, thoughtful aaaaaa nd sexy.

- CAROLYN "I love being swept away by a new romance and thankfully Audible's ever growing Library means I get to indulge myself over and over again"

Interesting world, bad narrator

This was an interesting book, I couldn't put it down. I saw MANY plot holes, but it grabbed me from the first paragraph with its sensuality and didn't let go. I haven't read any other alien romance books, so I can't say if the plot was unique but it definitely kept my interest.

5,000 years ago a settlement on earth wished they were somewhere else and because of a secret ore under their settlement their wish came true. They found themselves on a planet with two moons, and built a life away from the chaos happening on Earth. Now in present day that once bound clan has separated in a sort of north versus south way....one side having a lot of the secret ore, the other side thinking they are entitled to it. There has been war for centuries both sides taking massive hits, both sides having bred to hate the other, and both sides committing atrocities against their enemies. How does this involve one earth woman who can hear the thoughts of others, and who one alien finds himself infatuated with....well, she is the key that could bring peace to the other planet, and maybe one mans heart.

The world, the story, the characters I REALLY LIKED! I'm willing to get book two when it comes out next month just to see where the author will go with this world. There were many times where the plot just seemed to magically fix itself, which left me feeling kind of short changed, but I still want to know more about this world.

The narrator was NOT good. Couldn't do men's voices, had zero inflection when the men were suppose to be growling, or talking low, or being seductive. The main female she had inflection for, but with the men it just was non existent. There was an alien word that meant beautiful, and the narrator spoke it as the word "Linda"...this was confusing because several times the main lady was called Linda, which hello is a girls name and not HER name. At one point the leading lady asked about the word and the guy explained it and she "tried to pronounce it"....um hello if it was actually pronounced As Linda there would be no reason to TRY to pronounce it, kind of a common word!

Anyway, I would say for this first installment it was worth a credit and a sale but not a buy.
