Audiobook Review: Won by an Alien (Stolen by an Alien, #2). ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

Won by an Alien by Amanda Milo

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I was abducted by aliens. 

The aliens that I’ve been auctioned to don’t speak my language, and I definitely can’t speak theirs. 
I didn’t expect to get married by accident to the sweet one. 

I didn’t expect to have a grumpy alien bond to me, and go a little crazy if other males get near me, or if I try to leave. 

It doesn’t matter if they’ve won my heart. 
I can’t stay. 

Somehow, I have to explain that I NEED to go home. Because the bad aliens that abducted me? 
They took me from my babies.

The heroine: Tara – the last thing she remembers is dropping her kids off at daycare. Then she wakes up in a pen with a bunch of other human women being ogled at by a bunch of Aliens. Before she knows it, she is being sold at auction, and the nice looking alien that was staring at her and smiled at her is the one that won her.

The Heroes: Tac and Brax – Tac was stolen from his home planet and sold at auction when he was young, so he knew what it was like and he spent everything he and his friend Lem had, to buy Tara, whom he thought was a Gryfalian princess. Brax is the huge muscular and grumpy owner of the spaceship where Tac works. He bought Tac in an auction seven years ago and now Tac’s tenure is over on the ship, but he and Lem want to stay since he spent everything they own on the princess.

The Story: Tara can’t understand any of the guys and they can’t understand her. So much of the book is them trying to get comfortable with each other while not being able to communicate at all. This got a bit old pretty fast but went on and on. I was hoping for quite a while that they would get her a translator and update their own so they could communicate, especially since Tara needed to convey to them that she is human and not a Gryfala princess and that she wants to get back to her twin toddlers on Earth.

I liked the fact that Tac had a totally different relationship with Tara than Brax. Tac was a very nice guy and tried to do the right thing, but the lack of communication was difficult, he tried to make her food that he liked, but it was gross to her, so it was cute and funny. Brax was a big beast of a man and grumpy, though he had some issues with his past because his brother had fallen for a Gryfala princess and ended up being executed.

Though the lack of communication did bother me quite a bit, I have to admit that it was funny at times. You wouldn’t think it would be so hard to communicate that you have children but Tac’s misunderstanding of Tara’s attempts had me rolling on the floor laughing. At one point she thinks he gets it but he is so far off the mark, it was silly.

This book was told in dual points of view via dual narration, and was narrated by Teddy Hamilton and Callie Dalton. I like both of these narrators. Teddy Hamilton has a deep smokey voice and is great at voice acting rather than just reading. Callie Dalton has a soft feminine voice which is very pleasant to listen to.
