Craving by Lisa Lace
⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ Stars from Ari
Narration: Cassandra Myles
Length: 5 hrs, 7 mins
Earth is losing the war with the Anquesh. The world government needs TerraMates to find a bride for an alien warrior and finalize a peace treaty with the dangerous race.
Jennifer Carden never thought Kai would select her as his mate. He’s tall, dark, devilishly handsome, and different from all the males she’s ever known. Once Kai decides Jenn is his sindare, she’s taken to an alien planet.
On Anquera, she discovers there will be competition to win her marriage rights. And things are different in space. What does it mean when the word for wedding ceremony translates to ‘trial by combat’?
Jenn’s going to find out.
This story takes place in the TerraMates universe, but can be read as a standalone novel.
This book was a departure for me since it was my first sci-fi romance, but I totally loved it! The awesomely vivid story completely pulled me in and the love story was great. But my favorite part was how completely badass Jenn was. She can definitely hold her own and does. There were also lighter elements that had me giggling like finding your soulmate in a closet. You’ll have to listen to find out what I mean. Such a different kind of love story, but completely worth the listen. I think I’m hooked on alien love and Lisa Lace’s aliens.
Narration by Cassandra Myles was excellent! Where has she been all my life? I loved her voice and her narration helped sweep me away into a different world. Her narration was vivid, emotional, entertaining and if she can make aliens sexy for me than I’ll listen to whatever she’s narrating. This was my first audiobook by both author and narrator and after this one I’m looking forward to more by both! 4 Stars.
