From New York Times and USA Today best-selling author S. E. Smith comes an action-adventure and suspense-filled story to transport listeners out of this world.
Jasmine "Tinker" Bell has always had a love for life, looking forward to any new adventure that happens to come along. When a friend's experiment creates a portal to another world, she finds herself swept into a faraway star system she thought only existed in the movies.
J'kar 'Tag Krell Manok had given up hope of ever finding his bond mate. He is surprised when a pint-sized female unlike anything he has ever seen suddenly appears on his spaceship to save the life of his brother during an attack. When she is suddenly taken from him, he will do anything to get her back and claim her.
Two different worlds collide when Tink, a mechanic in a small college town, meets J'kar, a Prime warrior from a far-off galaxy. When Tink's life is in danger, only J'kar can save her. Now Tink has to decide if she is willing to give up everything she has ever known and loved to stay with the alien she has fallen in love with. Will their worlds survive the collision, or will they be torn apart?

The humour slight at the risk pf a slight spoiler but the "meg Ryan" scene in the canteen was really enjoyable and hilarious.
I wasnt really that impressed with the narration - the female voices were not too bad but the male voices were not to good - also the narration was quite stilted at times
It did gradually get better though
Not really its not really a moving book
The story is very flimsy to begin with and I nearly gave up after the first hour, glad I carried on though as it got a lot better as it developed, though some of the characters are far too 2 dimensional. Obviously there are some fairly hot chapters which do work well.
"HMMMM Not sure about the narrator?"
I really like the story line, but the verdict is still out on the narrator, or maybe not. Sometimes she sounds like she's just reading from the book.
Her male voices sound like they don't match up with big muscled aliens. Maybe she has a male friend reader who would maybe do the male voices?
But, the book is in audio and the narrator doesn't make you crazy when listening. Isn't that the best part? We all know there are narrators who can make you want to slam your kindle against a wall!!!
I don't get ticked off when doing mindless cleaning chores because I have my head wrapped up in the story. I just wish my husband would understand what that blinking blue light at my right ear means, 😕. Hands are working and brain is engaged.
"WHAT A FUN, SEXY & TRULY ENJOYABLE LISTEN THIS WAS"
Well if you want a little Sci-Fi escapism that's sweet, sexy and action-packed then who better to turn to than S. E. Smith because her stories have such great characters, contain impressive world-building talents, have a storyline that gives you laughs as well as deadly dramas and, at the epicentre of it all, is a sizzling romance that goes from very shaky to rock solid as the Alien v Human 'interactions' heat up.
In Tink and J'kar's story you have a full of fun, carefree and loves everyone character with Tink but she's no pushover - she's a feisty spitfire too and stands up and fights for what she wants. And the handsome Prime Warrior J'kar doesn't stand a chance because as soon as he sees, and then is touched by a tiny beautiful strange looking woman, the mating mark appears and it turns him into a possessive, lusty and jealous cave man but thankfully with Tink he's nothing but protective, loving and caring. But, as quickly and mysteriously, as she appeared on his spaceship she goes the same way..... leaving him confused, frustrated, heartbroken and determined to track his mate down and grab her (yeah good luck with that buddy!).
This was really enjoyable, had a fun and humorous storyline that did delve into a dark and deadly blood shedding scene as well, it is also full of loveable secondary characters, there were hot sexy times too and not all were flesh on flesh. Because these sexually inexperienced Warriors had to be verbally and mentally taught that sex wasn't just a mere bodily 'function' but more a two-way pleasurable act.... and the explanation and outcome of this, on board a spaceship full of horny Warriors, was just so funny. Multiple POV's and the narration was good.
Worth a credit? You know what you're going to get with a S. E. Smith book and this one didn't disappoint, a totally entertaining and enjoyable Sci-Fi romance that not only left me with a smile on my face but it also had me hitting the Add To Cart tab for book 2 and I'm also eagerly awaiting more in this new 'women wanted by hunky horny sex starved hot aliens' themed stories. Yes, it's far fetched, unbelievable and some of the things were eye-rollingly unbelievable but it's all anticipated, expected, accepted and enjoyed by me.... so no complaints here. For SES fans it's a must have and for any of you that are just considering it.... if you like the genre then, IMO, this is a very creditworthy listen.
S.E. Smith is a great author. She brings humor, romance, and fun to her stories.
The lunchroom scene explaining oral sex to a ship full of male aliens, hilarious!
She was good, the accents matched the personalities and was pleasant to listen to.
I laughed and didn't want to stop listening. The romance scenes were hot!
I would definitely recommend this author and will be purchasing future books.
"New Series!! Yea!"
I loved this new series. I would always recommend stories like this, however, a lot of people don't have the same taste that I have. I mention them but don't over sell the point. If they check them out - great.
I think I really liked Cosmos in this story....but Tink was my favorite.
Now you see me....now you don't. Kidding, I really don't know for sure.
I love SE Smith!!!
I am a huge fan of S.E. Smith's books. I did not have time to read this, so I listened instead. I love the book and cannot wait to download the next one.
"S.E. Smith never disappoints!"
I laughed all the way through this audio book. How entertaining was Tink? I know the rest of this series is going to be entertaining and amusing to meet the rest of the family.
Did not want to put this book down. I just kept listening and listening. Will look for more of your books after I finished reading this series.
"narrator needs work"
I loved this story, however there were times when it was not as great because it seemed that the narrator had to few voice tones and inflection that it made many characters sounds delicious the same and some of the emotions were lost, making it sound robotic. otherwise, great job.
I cannot wait to get the other three books. I loved every moment of this book and just know the rest will be just as Fantastic. Thanks S. E. Smith for such grand series.
"Wasn't my favorite"
Cute sci fi romance/erotica in space. Might have rated this higher but I just couldn't get with the way the heroine, Tink, behaved with all of the other men. She was very touchy-feely, flirtatious and affectionate with ALL the men around. That included lots of hugs, kisses on cheeks, kisses on lips, lots of talk about sex and even verbal directions on how to use your mouth sexually (which caused many of the men to orgasm, while listening to her). Her relationship with the guy (Cosmos) she was living with in the beginning was supposedly a brotherly friendship, but they too would kiss on the kips goodbye, and they were very physically affectionate all of the time. It was all just a little weird for me. I felt bad for her mate J'Kar because apparently she is just like that and he will have to live with it.
The timeline bothered the hell out of me and also the way the bond was acted out. I wanted more of a connection between the couple besides a few stolen moments. Another problem I had was the ending because it left you with just questions and more questions. I wanted to read more about his world and see through Tink's eyes what she was experiences there.
Kinda of sad a wasted my money.
