Mia & Korum
Dark Passion. Betrayal. Danger. Love.
Five years in the future, humans are no longer the most advanced species. Earth is ruled by the Krinar, a beautiful, mysterious race from another galaxy.
A shy and inexperienced college student, Mia Stalis has never had much interaction with the invaders—until one fateful meeting in Central Park changes everything. Having caught Korum’...more
This is a fabulous series, the only issue I had at all was Mia she really got on my nerves and it shows just how good the first book 'Close Liasons' was that I continued on because she really did annoy me in the first book.
The second book 'Close Obsession' proved to be addictive reading the concept was excellent, the descriptions of the K centres wonderful. Mia still annoyed me in the beginning but this wore off as the book progressed, Korum again was, well what can I say I loved ...more
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!
Soooo, you've got:
1) HOT, HOT aliens. Caveman style with a strong instinct to mate when they find their "other half";
2) Nanotechnology who'll help humans to live eternally (shoot me, just heard about it on the news. When science fiction meets reality);
3) A strong willed human female battling with the imposing and gorgeous alien;
4) Hot, hot sex scenes ...more
Mr. Scarlato does an excellent performance of not only the main characters, but the secondary as well. Mia and Korum have very distinctive voices and I never struggled understanding him or enjoying his narration. I sometimes struggle with a male narrator doing a female voice, but not so in this case. I would gladly listen to anything he narrated.
I’ve had this series on my TBR forever! Now that I’ve read/listened to it, I’m totally kicking myself for waiting ...more
Audiobook Version with 3 Different Narrators
(I felt like Goldilocks with the trilogy having 3 separate narrators: #1 was too strong, #3 was too soft, and #2 was JUST right. I was sorry to see she had been replaced.)
Overall, I'm rating this with 4 Stars because I was completely caught up in the story. Indeed, I devoted most of three days to listening intently whenever I could.
That said, I had so many issues with Mia, who was not only so tiny she was the size of a hou ...more
I. WANT. THIS. TO. BE. REAL!!! Oh, so bad!
This was so good. Just... wow!! Wow wow wow wow!!! This was like too too good. Annoyingly good. GREAT. Like... DAMN THAT WAS GOOD!😫
Mia and Korum’s story was brilliant. This was the first alien romance book I’ve read (trilogy). It went above and beyond my expectations. I always loved Anna Zaire’s writing, but this was the first I read from Dima Zales. Let me just say they make me want to read more from them. I will definitely read more fr ...more
p. 23 wow. I don't know if I'm going to be able to finish this.. You abduct someone off the street because a scrape of the hand "might scar" and it's raining, and then have the nerve to ...more
Genres: Adult, Erotica,, Romance, Sci-Fi, Suspense
Anna Zaires has created a very alluring & exotic world with the Krinar.
The romance between Mia & Korum is often thought-provoking, sometimes humorous and erotic. The Krinar technology astonishing.
For the most part the story flows easily and is well written.
To much reiterating.
Once you describe an item or scene, there is no reason to repeat yourself continuously in a book. Basica ...more
Admittedly I've never read alien romance prior to picking up this series, but if I had to recommend a series to start with it would be this one. The characters are well developed and her alien world is believable. Well as believabl ...more
What I loved about the book is that it was a great story line with good world building. The K have essentially taken over earth and live peacefully. Mia meets Korum (an alien), and begins a relationship with hi ...more
This author did a wonderful job of describing ...more
This is the series that got me interested in alien romance. Before reading this series I would have never even considered reading a romance novel with aliens as the love interests. Now I can safely say I've ventured into the sci-fi romance arena and it's all thanks to this series. Then again, before her Twist Me series, I never would have thought I'd be into that type of book either!
This review is spoilery! Do not enter if you have not read the story.
We have Mia. She's dumb as a box of rocks. For some unknown reason she catches the eye of Korum a powerful 'alien' leader. Korum decided that Mia is his. She has to cater to his every demand but hey the sex is hot so it's not all that bad.
But then Mia wants to go home for the summer, see her family work at her internship, normal ...more
Finished book 1, Close Liaisons, today. I really enjoyed it. I had read it once before, but this time I'm listening to the audio book. I'm not usually interested in audiobooks, I just can't get into them. This one I really like. As for the story; it was just as good as the first time. I will say that at times Korum was a bit too persistent about things, but he was the perfect alpha male. Always thinks his way is the best. Mia was a good character, though at times I think s ...more
One day Korum, an extraterrestrial, meets human Mia. He knows right away that he “wants” her and basically takes her. The chemistry is nice a spicy, and Mia was very innocent until she meets Korum. There is some deceit an ...more
Anna Zaires has created an amazing dystopian world here that is easy to become engulfed in. Her characters are believable for the most part and the storyline has a few twists and turns I didn't see coming anyway.
I really loved how most of this book is talking about typical human objects and scenarios but Anna Zaires also had enough imagination to describe a whole new civilization as well.
I hope I can read more about this wonderful imaginative future and would love to see upd ...more
This is definitely worth the five stars I have given it. I loved the characters of Mia and Korum, a young Earth girl and a (not so young) gorgeous alien man. They have various relationship problems to contend with, plus some scary adventures. There is also romance with lots of hot sex. Phew! I have read a lot of books by this author Anna Zaires and I consider her one of the best writers of this style of fiction around. Her characters are so believable you can’t help getting engrossed in ...more
