"Taken - Suspenseful, With Lots of Twists!"
This story took me on a mental roller coaster ride! I felt every emotion from anger, anxiety, anticipation to relief, hope and finally the happy ever after I was hoping for. After Lyzette is kidnapped and sold into slavery, her life is forever changed. In the beginning, she accepts her fate and tries to make the best of it. Her "owner" Mikael doesn't really think of her as a slave and treats well, and when he develops feelings for her, he starts to see slavery for what it is. However, after Lyzette is taken from Mikael, she finally finds her inter strength, and makes a stand.
Even though this book was about Lyzette being kidnaped, and sold into slavery, the story kinda reminded of the Brides of Kindred series. However, this one was more on the dark side and the alien world was more like earth.
This story drew me in, and kept me on the edge of my seat; I could not stop listening to it, even if I wanted to. I would recommend this story to my friends; however, I would caution it contains adult content.
Another great narration by Addison Spear!
"I was provided this audiobook at no charge by the author, publisher and/or narrator in exchange for an unbiased review via Audiobook Blast dot com.
I actually liked this book. This isnt the first alien romance I've listen to. This was an interesting story I'm glad the girl in this story got married to the guy because I knew he actually liked her. I know it's weird with the situations with the Aliens and Humans but the stories always catch my attention I'm the end. Good book.
the first book of this series is quite different from the second. This book was darker and dealt with the dark issue of slavery. But in the end it all worked out. But this book just shows that slavery even exist on different worlds. They thought it was ok just because they were not of there planet. My favorite part was when mikhail realized he loved her. I received this book as gift from the author/narrator/ in exchange for a honest review. I recommend this series.
"A Pretty Good Story"
Taken was a funny, sweet, strange story that involved a virgin living in her mother’s shadow being abducted by an alien and sold as a slave and being bought by the ruler of the planet. It goes on from there. The ruler bought women to ease his sexual urges but when he sees Liz in the cage she captures him without either of them knowing. He pursues her as a true suitor would do all the time telling himself that he just wants her to not be afraid of him. Yet he does all of the things needed to win her heart and to lose his. She thinks she is doing it to save the six other women slaves in the household and because she has always lived under her mother’s thumb does not know what falling in love really is. Then a kidnapping takes place and more cruelty than can be imagined happens. How does the story end? Well you will have to find out for yourself. It is worth a credit.
"enjoyed listening to this! "
great story great narration. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
"This took me away....I'm thankful"
The story itself. I wanted Liz to grow and I wasn't disappointed.
The characters came full circle and I didn't feel like the story was rushed.
Some parts were funny and some parts we're frustrating... I won't spoil it for anyone else.
Thank you to the author. It was a great story to get lost in.
I received this for an honest review.
I enjoyed the the first book in the series. I wasn't sure what to think with this one. It seemed to have a very different theme than the first, although still in the same series. The first one had the heroine volunteering for TerraMates. However, in this one the heroine was forced.
This definitely went in a different direction than the first book. Despite, or was it because of, the different direction I enjoyed this story. I love the development of the main characters, especially the heroine. She went from someone with almost no self-worth to someine with a very high self confidence that others looked up to. In the end she found that she had the strength and courage to change the outcome of things around her and did what was necessary to do it.
The narration was much better in this book than the last one. I know that there was a lot of hard work put into making it better, and it shows.
"2nd in the series"
The second audiobook in the Terra Mates series is very different to the first. The initial book was an enjoyable summer read, where as this one is an interplanetary human trafficking story and its connection to the Terra Mates Program is tenuous at best. The narration is good, she fits the characters well and her male voices are very believable. It is well written but this storyline did not appeal to me. Kidnapped from Earth, drugged and sold to the highest alien bidder, Lyzette seems not too concerned at being objectified, groped and sold into sex slavery. Her main concern is not what has happened to her or how she can escape, but rather the potential loss of "her jewel." Even though Mikael, who purchased Lyzette as his next concubine, does not sexually abuse her, every other male she encounters seems to. Mikael himself is no saint, even though he is not an outright molester, he still has a group of women who he has bought for the purpose of sex, most of whom were originally kidnap victims too. He used them each as concubines until he tired of them, then he just went out and bought another girl and his prior sex slaves were used as house staff. All these women seem to have Stockholm Syndrome, as they still just want to please Mikael and spend a lot of time preparing and training Lyzette to please him. Not one of them appeared to suffer any psychological or emotional problems after being abducted, abused and sold for sex! I know the ex-concubines say they were helping Lyzette in order to make Mikael fall in love with her and then free them, but after living as a slave on that world for years, you would think they would have know that by law a slave could only be released when their master is dead. This audiobook was not one for me, as abuse and nonconsensual sexual situations are not romantic, even if there is a HEA at the end. I received the audiobook in exchange for my honest opinion.
"Taken by Lisa Lace"
The storyline. Lyzette's growing confidence.
Lyzette. What a transformation.
Constant, articulate, steady.
Lyzette's escape from Mikael's enemy.
TAKEN, the second book in the Terramates series by Lisa Lace really captivated my interest from beginning to end. And yes, sorry. but pun intended. Taken was a clearly well-thought-out storyline with a believably built-up romance between the two main characters. There were some unexpected twists, some violence and danger, some unlikely female bonding and empowerment, and some very steamy scenes between Mikael and Lyzette... and not the type I expected. All working together to make this a very fascinating read that I enjoyed very much.
I really admired the strength portrayed in Lyzette's personality despite her constant feelings of not being smart enough to do well or be respected. And despite her horrible mother and home life, she bravely faces the situation she finds herself in after being kidnapped off the streets and sold into slavery. Rather than whine she essentially puts her shoulders back and makes the best of the situation.
As the ruler of the planet Marka, Mikael is a very powerful and respected man. He has had many consorts. All who continue to serve his household rather than being put away or sold for someone else's slave. He is bound in many ways by the traditions of his family and his planet. No one is more surprised than he when Lyzette, his latest choice of consort causes him to see things in a different light. No other woman has ever touched his heart the way this Earth woman has. He begins to reconsider his actions as a man and as a ruler. I enjoyed every bit of the story and was very impressed with the outcome. Fabulous ending. 4.5 stars
it was a little dramatic at the beginning, but it rapidly evolved into something more interesting with each chapter.
i liked that lizette was a little more innocent and naive, i do think a lot of girls can emphatize with her, a lot of us have lots of issues just like hers.
mikael was cool he was sweet for a master i liked that and he really cared about the people at his service.
and the end was so lovely i really liked that one, it made my heart melt and sour to the skies knowing they could work everything out.
