Publisher's Summary

Mitzi leads a quiet life as a professional matchmaker. Her cozy life is turned upside down when she is chosen as the matchmaker for an alien species searching for wives. Naturally, she refuses. Unfortunately, she’s having a hard time saying no to the dashingly handsome but domineering alien warrior. Although, he makes her heart flutter, it’s a good thing he’s not her type. 

Jax, captain of the Talzor starship, is ordered to hire a shalhinari, a spiritual matchmaker, to find soul mates for six of his men. He locates the best shalhinari on Earth; yet, Mitzi Selig, the earthbound woman, tries his patience. To his distress, he is drawn to her beauty, questioning his judgment. Worse, his long suppressed empathy gene awakens, a trait not seemly for a warrior. 

The magnetic pull between Captain Jax and Mitzi is astronomical. Yet, can a tormented warrior and a woman who refuses to leave Earth find love? A long light-year distance relationship is one thing, but looming danger could curtail any chance for their star-crossed passion.

excellent writing, narration is a bust

really enjoyed the story, it ticked off all the boxes for a good scifi story, there were some warm moments with the H&h, i found the story flowed nicely, Jax has traveled to earth for brides for some of the warriors of his planet, in exchange he will give a much needed gift to the people of earth, a intriguing story, this is a slow burn romance, if your expecting explicit sex in every chapter, this isnt that kind of book, as for my opinion of the narrator, she was the wrong choice for this book, Jax (the H) voice was like a bad british accent, the tone and the pitch were all wrong, Mitzi (the h) was sounding like some teenie bopper not like the age of 28 year old everything but the narrative got 5 stars from me, i hope the author choses one of the higher ranked narrators (andi arent) or someone with more of a vocal range, for her next audio.

this audio book was provided to me from the author for a true and unbiased review.

Planet Talzor Needs Brides

When Mitzi is “hired” to fill the role of matchmaker things are different... her clients are alien. She can still do this, but what if she feels a connection to one of the men?

This was a very enjoyable listen. There’s action and adventure as well as the romantic theme. A great story by Eva Gordon and narration by Elizabeth Walker.

couldn't finish it

Disclaimer- I recieved a promo code to read this book
I really tried to finish this book, but just couldn't. I got through half, and couldn't go on. I don't think the script was properly edited for audio. Sometimes it felt like I was listening to a one sided phone call, with random breaks and a conversation that didn't make complete sense. The story line is there. But it's really hard to tell the "inner thought" voice of the characters vs that actual "spoken outloud" dialogue. I may try to read the print version to find out the ending.

Funny and highly entertaining throughout!

I was very pleasantly surprised about how much I loved this sci-fi romance audiobook, from the very first minute all the way to the end. It was a breath of fresh air in the sci-fi romance subgenre. The story setup is wonderfully outrageous, and I could not stop listening to it. The detailed technology, culture, and backstory of the hero swept me away. I also loved that there was always something happening, either in the relationship or plot development. The humor was fantastic! I laughed a lot, and I probably smiled for much of the book. Mitzi, as portrayed by the talented narrator Elizabeth Walker, has tongue-in-cheek humor and hilarious thoughts. The narrator did an expert job with the different voices, the humor, pacing, and emotion. My only tiny criticism is that I often could not tell if Mitzi was saying things out loud or in her head.

The third-person perspective alternated between the heroine and hero, but more often the heroine. There was some great steaminess in small doses. I really like the slow burn relationship buildup without the sex overwhelming the plot. The author did a wonderful job with the love scenes.

I loved the main characters and at least three of the supporting characters, especially the hero's artificially intelligent assistant. The heroine Mitzi was strong-minded, engaging, relatable, and comfortable in her own skin. She is awesome. The hero was very likable, admirable, and had a totally hot voice. The narrator gave him a high-class British accent, and it was delicious. I highly recommend this to all sci-fi romance fans and to anyone who wants a funny romance.

I received a free audiobook copy from the author, and I voluntarily wrote this honest review.

Brides for an Alien Race

Great story line. Enjoyed the action and romance that was in the story, even wanted to knock some of the characters out myself.
An alien race needs help to reproduce and grow their population with the help of willing Earth brides, so who better to employee than a matchmaker. Fun and cute story.

Easy listen

Overall this was a good listen. The story moves at a fairly quick pace. The idea is cute, an alien race that needs brides and comes to Earth to find them. However, I was expecting a hot and steamy romance. That is not what this story was. The main love story is sweet, not sexy. There is intrigue and conflict though and I did enjoy the story. Overall, I would be willing to listen to any additional stories in the series as they come.

THE ALIENS MATCHMAKER

I quite enjoyed this matchmaker tale and found the mistreatment of Mitzi believable, l was angry on her behalf.
Lovely touch having her gift inherited from her beloved grandmother. I admired the IT/robot type interface named TAL and his dedication, even in the heat of battle, very touching. I wonder if he will keep his rockstar hairdo? The next book should prove interesting when the brides wake up. Lots of adventure . Mature readers as has sex scenes.

Fantastic story and fantastic narrator. Miss Walker brings each of the characters to life and we are drawn in by her voice and skills!!

cyborg finds love with a human

A matchmaker falls for one of her clients. How romantic is that?? Jax and Mitzi both try to avoid the obvious chemistry between them, but finally give in to the temptations. These two are so good together! I loved their interactions and banter, but more than that I appreciated their principles and sense of justice and right and wrong. Others are constantly trying to thwart them, but good triumphs evil. Yay ! I look forward to the other prospective brides' journeys to love. The narrator's voice and expressions were great and I enjoyed listening to this.

Jax and Mitzi

I loved the audible version even more than I thought I would! Mitzi was perfect! Mitzi, a matchmaker, has been tasked with matching alien warriors to earth women. A task that is of utmost importance to the future if mankind. Throughout the story Captian Jax and Mitzi struggle to come to terms with their feelings for one another. Not part of the original selection on warriors, Jaxs empathy gene makes it's self known around Mitzi. But what happens when the human wants to stay firmly planted on earth, while as a Captain, Jax is an alien warrior...

Another Great Story!!

I absolutely loved this story… This is one story I couldn’t stop listening to as I had to find out how this tale would end. The story is bursting full of action-packed suspense plus the promise of the unexpected and surprising romance tale between an initially uncooperative, quiet, business-savvy matchmaker hired by a super sexy alpha alien warrior to find matches for his crew—and definitely not for him. Add in a head-hunting bounty hunter to ramp up the danger ante and you’ll be immersed in this great story. This is definitely another fantastic romance tale that the author, Eva Gordon, is so adapt at penning. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
