Close Liaisons by Ann Zaires

Close Liaisons (Krinar Chronicles #1) is the first post appocoliptic romance I've read and actually enjoyed. Too often post appoc is all gloom and doom or the hero and heroine are running for their lives and just HAVE to stop and have sex not afraid the bad guys are going to catch them. Yeah. That is a pet peeve of mine. Close Liaisons was totally different.

Aliens (the Krinar) have invaded Earth and signed a Coexistence Treaty. They have K Centers throughout the United States and others live among the human population. Korum is one of those. He lives in New York City where he meets college student Mia in Central Park. It was love at first sight for him. Now if only he could get Mia to come around... except she sees him as dangerous, as the enemy.

A dark and edgy romance that will appeal to fans of erotic and turbulent relationships . . .

In the near future, the Krinar rule the Earth. An advanced race from another galaxy, they are still a mystery to us – and we are completely at their mercy.

Shy and innocent, Mia Stalis is a college student in New York City who has led a very normal life. Like most people, she’s never had any interactions with the invaders – until one fateful day in the park changes everything. Having caught Korum’s eye, she must now contend with a powerful, dangerously seductive Krinar who wants to possess her and will stop at nothing to make her his own.

How far would you go to regain your freedom? How much would you sacrifice to help your people? What choice will you make when you begin to fall for your enemy?

My Review:

I'm not usually a fan of post appoc romance but I enjoyed reading Close Liaisons Aleins (the K's) have invaded Earth and no coexist with them under a treaty. Korum one of the most powerful K's falls in love with Mia a college student in New York City. This novel is written solely from Mia's POV although there are a few slips into Korum's head. Usually not getting the hero's side of the story is a problem for me but the author made me feel close to Korum without being in his shoes. Bravo!

The author did a wonderful job developing both of these characters and explaining the differences between a human and a K. Korum was such an Alpha it turned me off a bit, but I realize this also played into the plot. Mia has been warned by the Resistance (people fighting the K's living on Earth) that all Korum wants with her is to be his sex slave. Her body craves his touch, but does she dare let him have her heart as well?

This story was definitely erotic. All the sex scenes were written well. Yum. The chapters were short which helped move this longer book along. The plot seemed a weak. I kept waiting for a dramatic dark moment and it never came. The ending leaves a lot of questions to be answered in the next book. Not sure it worked for me. I still never felt that Mia loved him with all her heart.

Overall it was a good read though!

I give Close Liaisons *** 3 stars. The Kindle edition is currently free on Amazon.
