Summary

R'kos, son of the Ankylos Emperor, is expected to settle down. But he's much more attracted to human males than to his own species. Eager to explore his forbidden longings, he steals a ship and heads to Elora Ki to see if he can find the right human guy.

Darien robs the corrupt to give to those in need, but now he needs a ride off Elora Ki, stat. Pursued by drug lords, he accepts help from the amorous stranger who calls himself Ricky. As they fly together along Darien's route, their friendship quickly turns into passion.

But when Ricky is injured, Darien must contact the embassy to get his alien lover the medical care he needs. As Darien finds himself accused of kidnapping, and Ricky fears his family's disappointment, can the two protect their growing relationship? Or are their differences just too great?

So dang good!

Man, I have not read/listen to a really good m/m romance in like forever. This was awesome with a capital A! I so did not expect this... but I love how Ricky was really and truly an Alien. I love the moving penis and inner balls in the butt! So great... OMG...I laughed soooo hard... I almost cried. It wasn't sick either... just so funny. And the noises that Ricky make when he is angry or horny is just hilarious. So good. A straight through listen too... Totally unexpected.

Buy or Credit.. well worth it.

Narration was good.

The ONLY audiobook I'll listen to more than once

What did you like best about this story?

The alien's balls. Seriously, I was like wtf at first but it got funnier...

Have you listened to any of Chad Maxwell’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Never heard him before. He did pretty well.

Any additional comments?

To be fair, the reviewer before mine is not lying, there are some corny parts in the beginning of this book, but I implore you to push through them, it's well worth it. This isn't a book that will one day become a movie but that doesn't mean it's not a good book. The writing is well done, the narration is well done, and the story is cute. There's just enough fluff, just enough action, just enough sex, and just enough heart. By the middle of the book and the end, the fluff fades and it takes on a more serious tone. I won't lie, I read romance for romance, and I am well aware that romance sometimes comes with cheese but this one was lightly dashed with it, and not covered in it Velveeta style like others I've heard or read. I am VERY pleased with this purchase and this story. It was worth way more than I paid. The characters were sweet and well put together. Thumbs up to the author and narrator. I shall look out for more by them in the future. Bravo!

A nice sci-fi romp

Would you listen to Alien 'n' Outlaw again? Why?

I think I would prefer to read the book over listening to the audiobook. The narrator seemed to me to be an amateur.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Alien 'n' Outlaw?

When R'kos was injured and Darien realized he loved him.

What does Chad Maxwell bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Over all he is a mediocre narrator and I would not look forward to another story performed by him. It was difficult to differentiate between Darien's and R'kos' voices, and his narrative is monotone.

If you could take any character from Alien 'n' Outlaw out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Really?

Any additional comments?

Summary: A great little romp through human thief Darien's sector of the galaxy with his big, sexy, 6'5 alien companion R'kos, son of the Ankylos Emperor. Nice, tight sci-fi story, smexy sex, a bit of sweetness and angst...what's not to like. The narrator, in addition to his monotone narrative, made it nearly impossible to distinguish Darien from R'kos, and mispronounced a few words. The recording was obviously not edited as evidenced by repeated lines. Regardless, this didn't didn't push me out of the story. I still recommend the audiobook.

Great worldbuilding, flat narration

What a monotone performance. It was hard to really listen to the story, which had plenty of big emotional moments, when read in that tone. Pity.
Story was veering wildly between plot and MxM porn. Author is great at worldbuilding. I bet this story feels better when I read it on paper.

Alien & human fall in love, complications ensue

We met R'kos in the previous book. He smells gay sex on the human negotiator. It stirs him up to the point that after returning to his home planet, he steals a ship and heads back to Elora Ki to satisfy his desire and experience human gay sex. R'kos is a son of the Ankylos Emporer, the enemy of the Aliance. He meets Darien in a bar and saves him from the bad guys. Darien is not an upstanding citizen, but kind of a Robin Hood, who robs the corrupt to give to those in need. Pursued by drug lords, he accepts help from the amorous alien R'kos who he then calls Ricky. Sex with an alien is very interesting and unusual. They both love it and fall for each other, but don't really express themselves.

A terrible accident occurs and both are injured. The story heats up and things get worse than complicated as you can imagine with a diplomatic disaster that involves royalty. Just when you think everything will work out, it goes awry. With much angst everything resolves to a cross between HFN and HEA. Some of their relationship issues have to do with their vastly different alien cultures so I can understand why they each didn't act like adults.

I hope the author writes another sequel.

Awesome

I've listened to both book 1 and 2 now and found them thoroughly enjoyable. I don't usually go for sci fi, but these are funny, romantic, entertaining, and sexy. The HEA is not bad either! Narration on both books is top notch as well. The voice and inflections used are spot on. I hope the series keeps going.

This is really 3.5 stars for me

I enjoyed this M/M story a great deal. Both characters were sexy and likable. The 'alien' wasn't just a person with a different color skin, but a different concept of living that I found interesting and would have trouble with it myself.It's prob better if you don't read the synopsis since it's not a lot more story than that, but it is well told, steamy and sweet. I recommend and am off to see what else KC Burn has written.

Gripping and enjoyable

I liked this one very much. The story is surprisingly gripping. I love sexy good space pirates! The narrator was Ok. He is now on my List of acceptable narrators. I took a chance and listened to this book to listen to something different for a change and Im glad I did!

Sci Fi Romance

Well, I definitely enjoyed this one. I liked the sci fi elements and felt they were well developed. This made the story much more enjoyable for me. The alien culture was well enough developed for me to actually care about. The sex was also quite steamy.
