Audiobook Review – The Alion King by Milly Taiden
Isabella Barca is great at organizing—not so great at keeping her nose out of trouble. When Bella goes to work as Mrs. Wilder’s assistant, the opportunity of a lifetime pops up: travel with Gerri to another planet, a shifter planet, and help Gerri find a lion king his mate.
Alyx Treyvaal isn’t known for being patient. A lion doesn’t ask for help. A lion doesn’t apologize. And he most certainly does not purr. But once he meets Bella, he finds himself doing all of the above…except for purring. He will not purr.
With wolves stirring all kinds of trouble for them and a cousin who would like to shred Bella to ribbons, things are not simple for the couple. Not at all. One thing’s for sure, when his mate is taken and threatened, the entire planet will hear the lion king’s roar.
Reader Note: This book contains panty-melting sex (the kind that makes you need ice cream and a cold shower), adult language (we like some freaky dirty talk), and mild violence. If this is not the kind of stuff you like to read, skip this book. However, if you like dirty, raunchy sex with a sexy Alion King on one curvy sarcastic girl, then this is right up your alley. Enjoy!
I am not sure how I feel about this turn of events. This went from a shifter dating agency series to something with a more sci-fi alien angle. I am still processing that change. It seems an odd jump, with the exception of Gerri, it is different kind of premise. I will have to keep moving forward with the series to see if I like the change. Right now, it is a bit jarring to switch gears.
I can tell you that the girl hasn’t changed, in tried and true Milly fashion she is a curvy gal with lots of sass. Do not get me wrong, I like that type of gal, in fact they are my favorite heroines, the issues is they all feel the same in this series. I would just like a little change up other than a new name and job.
Bella and Alyx steam things up right away, boy howdy do they bring the steam!! Ya gotta love a shifter read cause they get to the smexy quicker, it is the whole mate angle. This is a scorcher with detail a plenty!! Get the ice cream, cold shower and snuggle buddy ready!!
I listened to the audiobook, Lauren Sweet is once again the narrator. I have said I the past how much I enjoy her read and swift pace. She never disappoints! I barely have to speed up the read because is pace is so brisk.
This new work holds much promise, and I already see the next two books heroes. It will be interesting to see how this new turn plays out in the series.
