    What happens when your lover is supposed to be your enemey? Would you sacrifice your chance at happiness because of rumors and prejudice? These are just some of the hard questions that I was asking myself while reading Close Liaisons.

    Mia is a naive college student that gets caught up in a dangerous situation when Korum, a visitor from another planet, takes an interest in her. From the first time they meet she feels physically drawn to him, but only five years after the Krinar race made themselves known to Earth there is still a lot of mistrust placed on the alien visitors. Korum doesn’t help things with his blunt and territorial personality. His highhandedness and domineering ways had me scared yet drawn to him at the same time. I felt just as confused about my feelings for him as Mia did!

    While Mia’s naivety and Karum’s pompous attitude towards humans had me cringing on more than one occasion I couldn’t manage to put it down. The plot and steamy love scenes had me devouring the pages, and thinking about it long after I finished.

    For the happily ever after seekers amongst us be aware that Close Liaisons has a satisfying, yet, happy for now, open ending. (Not open enough to feel frustrated, just enough to keep you excited for the next installment.)

    My one and only complaint would have to be that during the sex scenes I felt a little put off by the very clinical terms used. Don’t get me wrong, I don’t want vulgar or flowery synonyms for the male and female form, but something about the very sterile terms thrown into hot (HOT, HOT!) sex scenes let me down.

    With an original plot, and characters that won’t leave your mind for some time to come I can’t recommend Close Liaisons enough!

    *You might think I’m a bit crazy, (seeing as there was no BDSM and Close Liaisons is a Sci-Fi Romance) but I can’t help but see similarities between Mia/Korum and Anna/Christian from 50 Shades of Grey. A sheltered, small town college student meets a domineering slightly crazy/stalkerish, handsome man is the name of the game in this one. While Anna Zaires writing is much better (in my honest opinion) than James’ I thought it might be helpful to point out the similarities to those that enjoy reading about slightly dangerous and all-consuming relationships.

    This is a great book with a great story line and series to follow. I’ve read all the books in this series and i can tell you they just keep getting better. i will also tell you if your weak minded or a survivor of an abusive relationship this book may not be for you. it does have some strong content. BUT if that’s the case don’t go reading it just to be a negative nancy! this book was well written.and if you can’t handle the heat in the kitchen then get out! This book along with the rest of the series is far from anything I’ve ever read before or even have since but i still think it was a well written well thought of erotic with a slice of si-Fi piece of work.and like i said it only gets better! Can’t wait for more krinar & korum and mia. <3

    This review is from: Close Liaisons (The Krinar Chronicles: Volume 1) (Kindle Edition)
    When the Krinar invade earth, after some initial bloodshed, the two races settle down and co-exist peacefully. Other than changing their diet, the Krinar pretty much leave the earthlings to live their lives the way they want. Of course, resentment and fear continue to simmer among the conquered earthlings. As race, the Krinar are beautiful people, but cruel and bloodthirsty–so the Earth people believe.

    Mia, a college student who wants to become a counselor, doesn’t give the Krinar much thought until the day she crosses paths with Korum, one of the “Ks,” and he takes an immediate and strong interest in her. Having heard the rumors, she’s scared to death of him and is afraid to tell him no so she reluctantly and fearfully becomes his “charl.” He pretty much takes over her life. But they have tremendous chemistry, and she discovers a great passion with him and comes to care for him.

    And then she is contacted by members earth’s Resistance Movement who want her to spy on Korum and report back with any information that could be useful in overthrowing the Krinar. She must then betray a man she has come to love–and who might also kill her if he discovers her duplicity–or reject and fail her people.

    This novel gripped me by the throat and wouldn’t let me go. The actions and ambivalent emotions of an innocent college student attempting to take on a powerful, dangerous invader felt so true to life, it was easy to identify with the heroine even though she is much younger than heroines I usually care to read about. Author Anna Zaires crafts technology and customs for the Krinar that are interesting without going into tech overload. The chemistry between the characters was believable and hot. Although there was some disconnect between the crude and clinical language used, overall, it did not detract from the sexiness of the story for me.

    What I liked most about this book was the way Zaires creates a fascinating day-to-day life while leaving the reader guessing about the story outcome and the motives of the Krinar. Are the alien invaders the bad guys? Or are the Resistance fighters the bad guys? Who is telling the truth?

    Loved this book. Would rate it 6 stars if I could. Close Liaison is part one of a trilogy, and I’ve already started reading book 2. At the time that I am writing this review, Close Liaisons is free on Amazon.
