Audiobook Review: Tempted (Fated Mates of the Kalixian Warriors, #8). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Tempted by Presley Hall

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I promised myself I would never trust an alien. But with Zhori, I may not have a choice. 

After being kidnapped by aliens, nearly rescued, and then snatched back by my captors, I don’t have much hope of getting rescued again. Still, I’m determined to fight back on my own, to break free and find some way off this horrible planet.

But when I’m put up for auction, my heart nearly stops when I see him in the crowd — the bronze-skinned alien who tried to free me before.

What is he doing here? Why did he come back?

My instinct is to assume the worst. Maybe he returned because he wants to steal me for himself. Maybe he plans to use me just like every other alien has.

But he keeps helping me. He keeps protecting me. And every time he does, it gets harder and harder to deny the truth.

This alien warrior may be the hero I need — and a temptation I can’t deny.


Love in a hopeless place!

Brooke and Zhori – Brooke was one of the human women who were abducted by the Orkun but then when the Orkun moon base was destroyed, the were about to be put up for auction when the Kalixian warriors broke into the warehouse, freeing the women in the previous book Damaged. However, right when they are about to board the Kalixian ship, Brooke was recaptured by the guards and is now going to be auctioned off to the highest bidder.

Zhori was a Kalixian warrior and second in command to Druxik, he tried to save Brooke when she was taken, but was unable to grab her and she was taken away while he was on the ship that left the port. He couldn’t just leave so he took off from the ship, going back to the black market slave auction alone to see if he could save the human woman.

Brooke is purchased by a slug-like alien with jagged and darkened teeth. She fears for the rest of her life. When she sees the golden bronze 7 foot tall alien in the crowd, she had hoped he was there to bid for her, though when he didn’t and she was sold, her hopes died. Zhori wanted to gut the alien right then and there, but he knew that following them and rescuing her later would be easier than doing it at the auction.

This book has action, fighting, romance, steam and much more. Brooke is much stronger than Zhori expected. Rescuing her didn’t work out quite as he expected.
