Are they meant to be mated?
Urie is a leader and general of the Ura-Than race. He has no time to find a mate to create an heir to replace him as leader one day.
Urie gets his friend Reli of the Celestial Mates agency to find him a mate. The only thing is that Reli's agency uses some methods that probably would not be accepted in certain cultures, such as bidding.
Samantha was the one he lusted. She was just a human, but the most beautiful one he had ever seen. He needed to get her. At any cost. Urie knew he had to outbid the rest to get her.
Getting adjusted to her new life is hard for Samantha. Urie has to keep on planning how to defend his own people against the enemy, X, and he soon learns of a possible traitor amongst his own that may even go all the way to the top of his most trusted generals and captains.
What will happen between these two mates? Is their fate sealed? Or will one of their needs have to give if push comes to shove?
The Blue Alien's Mate is part of the Celestial Mates series and is a standalone, full-length science fiction romance novel. There are no cliffhangers, no cheating, and a guaranteed happy ending!

This audiobook was given to me for a honest unbiased review. This was good, not great but not horrific either. Had potential, but the delivery was not great.
DOESN'T DELIVER IN HEAT, ROMANCE OR VOCALS
I was provided this audiobook through Audiobook Boom at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review.
I expected a steamy and raw alien abduction adventure but didn't get it. What I got was a romp of a story that quickly moved from one scene to (often unrelated) another. Beginning with a battle to meet Urie, going to meeting Samantha as she's captured during a run. And then back and forth. The opening battle provided only one component that carried through and even that added nothing to the story. As far as the romance... Samantha unequivocally fought against any submission, and yet one sight of Urie in the shower and she was (more or less) submissively in love. That lead to one sex encounter, over pretty darn quick, and she's happily playing house. There's turmoil as Urie sets off to save his family. Not to spoil anything, I'll just say I never felt he had Samantha as his #1 priority.
The book kept me listening because it moved quickly. It failed to evoke any strong feelings, though. Stronger moral statements could have been made against racism & slavery. Or it could have been Erotica. Something.
Sorry, but Max Lehnen didn't cut it for me. Maybe he's do better with a comedic verse... the narration was so "once-upon-a-timey" (ugh). I can't think of a word to describe it. He sounded "old" or "preachy" or "singsong." Looking into his other (many) works, the books get good reviews but his narration most often doesn't.
My final answer? Comme ci comme ça. Passable.
