Summary

Jesse Sampson and her two younger sisters have lived a hard life on the streets of Seattle, Washington, for the past several years. Four years before, the Earth received its first visitors from space, causing mass fear. Alone in a world gone mad with just her sisters, Jesse has learned to use the darkness and the remains of the city to survive and keep what was left of her family alive. She has seen the savage side of human nature and finds they are not much different from the aliens who conquered the Earth.
The Trivators have taken control of the Earth to prevent the humans from destroying it in their fear. A world of warriors, they are sent out by the Alliance of Star Systems to seek out new worlds. Their mission is first contact. They are to establish communication with the leaders of the new worlds they find and bring them into the Alliance. Any resistance is to be quickly subdued to prevent unnecessary death of the inhabitants of the new worlds they find. Their payment comes from the success of their mission.
Hunter is what he is called. A hunter, one of the elite clans of the Trivators who seek out those who resist. His abilities to track, capture, and eliminate those who try to harm any warrior are renowned. He finds the tables turned when he becomes the one captured by a group of ruthless humans.
Hunter is shocked when a strange human female risks her life to help him escape only to disappear into the ruins of the city. He now has a new mission, finding the female who saved his life. He is determined to find her before she is damaged by others of her kind.
What he finds is a reward beyond comprehension to a Trivator warrior: a family. Can he convince Jesse that he can give her and her younger sisters a better life on his world? Or will fear keep her from accepting what he has to offer?

ENJOYABLE LISTEN THAT'LL PUT A SMILE ON YOUR FACE

To be honest I went backwards and forwards looking at this listen and it was in and then out of my basket (me indecisive... well maybe/maybe not). I love S.E. Smith's books and I also love Alpha Aliens too but I thought spending a credit on such a short listen was surely a no no......well how wrong I was!! I obviously gave in and spent the credit because of the rave review by my fellow Reviewers (thank you).

It's all been said before.... good world-building, action, adventure, tension, great characters, an ongoing plot, sex scenes (which IMHO could have been hotter) and a really nice romance where nobody was stupid, there were no secrets or dislikable main characters. An Alien who rescued a 22 year old woman and her 2 younger sisters and all three of them were feisty and weren't captured willingly. But Earth had become a bleak and dangerous place and, in the end, all their futures were changed for the better. The Aliens were so thoughtful, caring and possessive you forgive them for destroying the planet.

Worth a credit? Yes, OK I'll admit it I was wrong..... this book may be on the short side but boy did it pack a lot into those few hours and it was like listening to a much longer book..... so YES creditworthy. Great narration, dual POV's and I'll definitely be following all these loveable characters in the next book in this series.

Fun New Series

This story was fun with some steam! I liked the switch POV and the girls in the story were tough and I loved that too! The bedroom scenes were HOT. I also liked that there was a lot of background detail especially considering it was only 5.5 hours. Usually in shorter stories you feel like things were rushed and I really didn't feel that way at all.

The narration was awesome! I truly enjoyed the deep voice especially during the Male POV but I also was very glad the narrator didn't try to sound like a female, he just lightened his voice a little. He had a great voice for the sexy scenes too ;)
