I love SF mixed with hot romance, alian invasion, alpha males, some darkness of the soul, tortured not literally hero heroine and all that stuff, so when I so this blurb I thought this would be a perfect book for me A dark and edgy romanceThere s NOTHING dark and edgy in this book Or, better, if you re 15 years old, maybe you ll find something edgy here wink Since I was expecting someting dark and edgy, I was also expecting an adult herione But Mia was young, young, young I should have read better the blurb So, she s young and she reacts like a very young girl should That s described very well Her reactions are what a really young and naive girl would do.But that s why I don t like reading YA NA books I just get all annoyed with that kind of reasoning As I got annoyed with Mia s Karum was supposedly 2000 years old, but sadly I don t think a 2000 years old man would act like he was acting here OK, he s uber alpha, alien, predatory male He saw Mia in a park and decided that she s his Here Mia was right he treats her like a pet, not a sentient human being So, in this instance I understood Mia s reasoning view spoiler and why she tought he s the villain hide spoiler Stupidest.Heroine.Ever. There isn t anything remotely charming or sexy about this book You have an ALIEN male protagonist who is controlling, emotionally abusive brutish You have a HUMAN female protagonist who s just flat out stupid Why are 90% of the female protagonists portrayed as helpless, innocent virgins This novel takes the notion of the defenseless female virgin WAY TOO FAR She can never adapt to her alien lover s enormous size, in one scene, she actually requires medical attention for a vaginal injury Erotic I think not It bears similarities to the very popular series Fifty Shades of Grey, except for the fact that this novel s characters are Fifty Shades More Unlikeable Oh yeah, onething IN THIS NOVEL, ALIENS THRIVE OFF OF DRINKING HUMAN BLOOD Twilight, much 1 5 stars [Free] ♸ Close Liaisons ☢ In The Near Future, The Krinar Make The Rules An Ancient, Highly Advanced Race From Another Galaxy, They Are Beautiful, Powerful, And Immortal And Driven By Dark DesiresA Student At NYU, Mia Stalis Has Her Whole Life Planned Outuntil One Close Encounter Changes Everything Drawn Against Her Will To The Dangerous Alien Determined To Possess Her, Mia Finds Herself Thrust Into A World Of Explosive Passion And Deadly Intrigue And If She Is To Escape His Addictive Embrace, She Will Have To Make An Impossible Choicewhile The Fate Of Earth Hangs In The Balance Although this is another Alien hunk meets Earth girl romance, the events take place in Earth and particularly in New York No Deep Space here There is an Earth Invasion you seeKorum and Moira meet 5 years after the first time one of the Aliens introduced himself to US president Korum is ecstatic to meet her at the park, while Mia wants to run away and scream Basically this is how their story rolls Korum is pushy, territorial, bossy, cruel and a jerk sometimes, but Mia is his and she needs to understand this Mia is scared to death, virginal, defensive and a crybaby sometimes who has no clue what this hot alien wants from her Their passion will be over the top Mia will be pampered, looked after, fed properly Korum keeps cooking these tasty, healthy salads and sandwiches just for her and she will be HIS.She has no other choice actually She will become his sex toy and she will be introduced in his world of passion Certain things scare her like his craving for blood during sex act she will overcome her fear about his vampiric tendencies soon and she will enjoy them and their age difference maybe.Okay, he is much older than her a couple of thousand years older , cleverer than her he has designed the vessels that brought his people to Earth and richer than her he owns the company which creates the vessels.Little innocent, student Mia is overwhelmed Plus she is warned that now she will be his slave, he will never let her go and he will make her disappear.To be honest I did not like the two main characters very much when I started this series I wanted to punch Korum a couple of times He behaves like a patronized, arrogant I know everything asshole And he probably knows everything, but this is not my point Mia on the other hand is truly a baby, easily manipulated by both her alien and her friends Not my thing.I gave 5 stars actually when I finished all three books and I saw several things I liked i.e how their relationship proceeded through the three books how Korum explained himself and his behavior.And the world building is amazing Aliens have conquered the Earth peacefully and they are teaching them medicine and technology to improve their lives. DNF at 21%I have just bought this book for free onand only managed to read 21%After this blunt statement from the Hero, I felt sick to my stomachAll right, he said softly Have it your way Go to your little room, and tell your roommate all about it Have yourself a good cry about what a little slut you are, coming like that from a kiss right out in the hallway That was after she refused his advances and instead honoring her wishes he accused her of being a slut For what for refusing to have sex worth him For nearly being raped What a joke The premise of this book sounds so terrifying and this happens just after 21% so I can imagine what is going to happen after I am not taking part in this romantically justifying abuse This is not the way a decent guy would talk to a woman There is nothing decent about this guy Freebie Thank you Anna Zaires and Kindle Yaaaayyyy 3.5 StarsA great surprise, a book I really enjoyed Everyone who knows me family,friends , knows I m a sucker for everything sci fi It all started years ago, when I stayed past my bedtime one night with my father to watch Star Trek and I ended up with a huge childhood crushthat I reluctantly admit I may not have get over with Go figure All of you, my GR buddies, know I m a sucker for a HOT romance and a hero that go after what he wants Anna Zaires managed to combine these two, and write a book that pushed all my buttons in a very good wayWhat is all the fuss about We are 5 years in the future In these years an alien race has made itself known to humanity.They call themselves Krinar They didn t come to eradicate us and plunder our planet They are an ancient and dying race of nearly immortal Humanoid creatures who are responsible for the human evolution They made us in their image million years ago and now they are here to guide us, because we are set on destroying our world They have vampiric tendencies only for pleasure , are gorgeous and have what it seems to us superstrength They are above our laws and have set even nutrition laws for all the humans OUTLAWEDEnter Korum A very powerful Krinar, high in their hierarchy He is seductive and ruthless and possessive and had me wondering about his motives throughout the book.Mia Stalis is the only clich but she really warms up to you in this highly unique story She is a 21 years old psychology student and you guessed right shy, introvert, virgin, awkward and entirely unaware of her own sex appeal.So they two meet and despite their explosive chemistry have to overcome impossible problems Resistance movements among the humans, rebel Krinars with their own agenda, Korum and Mia s inability to carry out a single discussion without having sex arousing but annoying and then we have a huge BANG and..Yeah that s right when you are craving for , the book ends It s not just a cliffhanger It s as though the book was whole and somebody yeah ok, Anna Zaires split it in two and gave us the first part, teasing us mercilessly Nothing is resolved, we have a huge pile of questions and no answers view spoiler Except of course of Korum s ability to forgive Mia s betrayal too easily in my opinion, there is an unresolved thread there hide spoiler I loved the Twist Me series by Anna Zaires, so I thought I d check out some of her other works I am so glad that I did I ve found another series that has captured my interest in this first book of The Krinar Chronicles Usually, paranormal isn t my go to sub genre in romance However, every once in a while I find one that is compelling and unique Close Liasons was one of those rare finds.In many ways, I wanted to hate the main characters Korum, the sexy alien invader, was high handed, manipulative and controlling On the other hand, Mia was wishy washy, naive and often portrayed as weak Usually, that would be enough to completely turn me off Yet in spite of, or maybe because of, all this, I could not get enough of these two Sometimes, it just works.The story begins with a brief history of how the Krinar, aadvanced alien race, took control of earth After the initial invasion, they seem to live peacefully alongside the humans for the most part Of course, rumors about the gorgeous alien invaders abound.One day, Mia is approached by Korum in the park Just a human college student, Mia has no idea what the beautiful Krinar male could see in her She s never been particularly attractive to the opposite sex with her skinny frame and wild, curly hair Yet, she can t stop staring and can t deny the connection she feels.Korum soon divulges his intentions for Mia He wants Mia in his bed and it isn t optional Apparently, the Krinar get what they want and Korum wants Mia Despite trying to fight her attraction for Korum, Mia develops feelings for him While she really doesn t have a choice but to comply with his wants, Mia can t help but feel like a traitor to her race for enjoying his touch so much She definitely has a love hate relationship with him throughout this story.There is also a lot going on behind the scenes as well Freedom fighters are waging a campaign against the Krinar and Mia is called upon to support the human cause Korum ispowerful than he s let on, and vital to the Krinar Eventually, tempers flare and Mia s deceit is revealed.This book ends with things still up in the air Mia is in danger and still bound to Korum He s unwilling to let her go and despite his harsh ways, there is a tenderness about him that continues to draw you back in, no matter what he s done I can t get enough of this story and will be starting the next book immediately. This was one of the first alien type stories I ve ever read and Anna has spoiled me for other paranormal books of this type Like No alien so far has ever been able to compare to Korum Lol.I mean, the only books I ve read that were genre similar to this that were able to maybe stand beside this series was Evangeline Anderson s Brides of the Kindred book series Thank you, Anna, for introducing me to Mia and Korum They were my very first paranormal love Combination of Twilight 2000 year old bloodsucker with 50 Shades controlling rich dude and a submissive inane heroine lacking intelligence, backbone and basic logic Oh also she s a POOR ME whinger Heroine have you ever read the account of a woman suffering domestic abuse Well there you go.Hero glaring irregularities.1 I m not sure if the author has secret Gulf Arab sheikh fantasies but she s played them out here The heroes and all K men appear to be black haired, bronze skinned, tall and authoritarian Either that or she s got a fetish for the Taliban.2 Typical characteristics of a silly Neanderthal Cave man possessive, believes in female ownership and inequality, and judicial killings but is meant to be 2k years old from a mature older race Than surely they d be enlightened progressives Using armed warfare would equate to being primitive In fact considering their small population K s are inclined to reproduce less not as fertile as humans but live longer and their use of brain mass K s are highly evolved intellectually surely after exceeding a billion years the evolutionary outcome would be a race that would be rendered with telepathic and Psychokinesis telekinesis aibilitis and minimal animalistic tendencies inclinations Basically a low sex drive, non violent, control over emotions etc.Sexual details This is disturbing I m not against dominating dubious consent stuff If that s what you enjoy better to feed your fantasy via text than in reality However, this author finds the idea of outright rape distasteful hence according to the hero as long as the heroine is enjoying the forced seduction then its only borderline rape so eermm.ok.Dude if you re going to infringe those essential liberties than go all the way rather than tease your audience with a semi rapist control freak stalker And don t JUST DO NOT justify such behaviour If it s your kink fine But don t think it s ok DOMESTIC VIOLENCE is NOT ok However, most disturbing was the references to the heroineresembling a 10 year oldBasically she doesn t have the body that most erotic novel heroines do i.e curves You wouldn t want a hero less endowed hence vice versa So when the hero falls for our heroine, it s primarily due to her resembling a frightened 10 year old running from the Big Bad Wolf.Issues Contradictions Illogical1 Mention of Oil Rich Sheikh considering the K s are here to prevent the further destruction of planet earth from immature humans than one would assume that they d immediately introduce clean transportation like using telepods Surely for an advance race that s been existence for billions of years this would require little to no effort.2 The humans have signed a treaty with the K leadership No mention if a global treaty or if the USA is speaking for the whole world I mean I know our friends across the pond have world domination in mind but I think the Chinese combined Russian strength has put paid to that ambition with a declining global reserve.3 Humans are according to K s a subspecies whom the K s despise due to our inferiorty, which the K s state is manifested by our selfish, ignorant and emotional state of being However, Korom is NOT in control of his emotional state and hardly an intellect and does NOT resemble a sophisticated enlightened being Korom is a whinging diva, petty, stalker, cavemen Neanderthal it doesn t make sense loadsbut can t be bothered to go into it. This is a cute Alien Human love story i ve been around long enough to understand that when you find a good thing you hold on to it, you don t throw it away on a whim Aww i fell in love with him when he said it D
