Summary

When it comes to love, sometimes the best bet is to double down.

Kit and Luke Armas are cyborgs created for one purpose, battle. Now that the war is over, they must fight to carve out a place for themselves in a universe they were intended to die for but never be a part of.

Cargo pilot Zura Watson came to the edge of civilized space to start over. The Drift is a haven for the hunted, the lost, and those seeking second chances. It was also the last place in the cosmos Zura expected to find love.

When the shadows of the past threaten to eclipse this trio's future, they'll have to fight for their chance at love and the life they've always dreamed of.

Absolutely Brilliant!!!

I’ve had this in my library for sometime now, and I also had them in ebook as well, but never got round to listening or reading them. More fool me!! This series is fantastic!! From the world building to the character depth it pulls you in and doesn’t let go. Each book is about a different relationship involving aliens, humans and of course cyborgs but all the characters are relatable so you don’t feel you’re out of comfort zone!
Tieran Wilder has to be one of my top 5 female narrators now. I can’t believe I haven’t come across her before. All her characters are distinctive and there’s real passion and feeling in her narration, also her males voices are excellent and all different which is an achievement considering how many different male characters there are.
The thing I love the most about this series is the inter connectivity of all the characters, it’s not a case of one relationship one book, they are all in each book but don’t take away from the main characters and the main story winds brilliantly through every book.
Have just started book 6 and I’m still completely invested in this world and storyline that I’m getting not a lot done at the moment! Highly recommend!

Alien Love

Zura Watson is a loner, a half human half alien being, who pilots a cargo ship on the outer edges of space. Zura reaches a ragtag civilization called The Drift where her life changes in ways she never imagined. There she meets cyborg brothers Kit and Luke Armas, who are struggling to find a place in a world that still looks upon cyborgs as inferior and to be feared.

Double Down is erotic science fiction with a heart. The story is engaging from the beginning and I liked Zura’s tough as nails demeanor, but she has a heart of gold underneath that gruff exterior. Kit and Luke play well off each other and lower Zura’s defenses. The story is explicit and as you can tell from the cover. It’s a menage story, but it’s all about pleasing her.

Tieran Wilder narrates this nearly 6-hour audiobook. She does a nice job fully voicing the production. She gives each character their own distinctive voice and her pacing in the telling of the story was perfect.

Susan Hayes is a new author to me and I enjoy her writing. Her style reminds me of Lisa Lace and that’s not a bad thing! I look forward to listening to more in this series.

Interesting

An interesting twist, cyborgs that fall in love... A good start of the series, the story flows easily. Overall I enjoyed it, loved the voices for Kit and Luke, their devotion to Zura is endearing, lucky woman. A love story mixed with a bit of suspense, some hot scenes and a HEA made the hours fly by quickly.
New narrator for me, Ms. Wilder has that warm voice that draws the listener in. I like that I can hear the emotions and moods behind the words. Will definitely pick up the 2nd one too.

Delightful listen!

Ok. I’m hooked on this series :)
Narration was excellent and writing was excellent! Story development was smooth and blended characters in well to steamy situations as well as adventure through the galaxy situations.

What a fantastic story

The characters were strong. The story line kept my interest all the threw. The romance was steamy, but not overly much h. The narrator did a fantastic job of giving the audiobook life. Highly recommended

I like this series

I like listening to this book. The narrator is ok, but I use to more than one narrator. I can't wait to see what happens with the rest of the family.

Love the story

But the book kept skipping. Other than that I enjoyed the story. The romance and the action and a little bit of comedy. 👏
