When a Man Loves an Alien by Chloe Archer; Narrated by Greg Bordeaux

When a Man Loves an Alien is just as fun and wacky as its predecessors! If you liked the first 2 in the series, then book 3 will likely be another winner for you.

The audiobook for Chloe's third installment of Tentacular Tales is here! When a Man Loves an Alien jumps us back into this wild and wacky world of aliens on earth and how they try to hide their existence from earthlings. Greg Bordeaux is back and nails it once again.

From the blurb:

A grumpy-sexy alien and his (mostly) human mate are just trying to get married for goodness sake! But the road to matrimony is riddled with obstacles that could prove deadly…


Being engaged to my adorable alien boo is a dream come true. Too bad there’s a target painted on my back. Come on universe, quit messing with true love! For reals. Kai and I need to plan our wedding—which is going to be hella quirky and fun, because I say so.

Cue Shilgar the Deadly, who’s screwing up everything—what with trying to kill me and all. My life is becoming even more unbelievable than my fictional characters, Lord Vardox and Captain Starblade.

There’s no way I’m not walking down the aisle with Kai, so help me! I fully intend to ‘get me to the church’—I mean Vegas wedding chapel—on time. This fool of an assassin thinks he can mess with my dreams of wedded bliss? I don’t think so. He’s about to learn he’s met his match in River Sullivan!


My relationship with River is solid and wedding bells are in the air. Unfortunately, other parts of my life are… less stable. Between juggling a highly inconvenient Mating Fever that can strike at any time, and dealing with an investigator from Intergalactic Alliance Headquarters, I’m finding it hard to hold onto my usual equilibrium.

When Shilgar the Deadly finally shows up on Earth, gunning for River, the control I cling to is stretched razor thin. I’m desperate to do whatever I can to keep my mate safe—but I’m not sure if I can.

Yet things aren’t all that they seem. New secrets come to light and we’re all left reeling. Apparently, that famous Earthling playwright was correct when he wrote, “the course of true love never did run smooth…”

When a Man Loves an Alien (Tentacular Tales #3) is a (100k words) M/M sci-fi rom com and the third book in the series. It should be read in chronological order. This installment features an assassin who just won’t quit, little old ladies at slot machines who should NOT be messed with, a zipline action-hero moment, shocking secrets and revelations, a death-defying climax, and just maybe… a zany Vegas wedding? This book has an HFN ending and no cheating. Never fear—there is a guaranteed HEA by the end of the series!

Molly Otto's review:

Chloe Archer is just one of those authors that has you laughing your arse off from start to finish! She does mix in heart and soul along with the ridiculous antics of River, with Kai along for the ride, cause well, he's kind of stuck with him for life now🤣. Definitely more steam in this book from previous installments, and they were great!

Cannot wait for the next installment to see how this series goes!

Audio update

Ok, Greg, how are you able to pull this narration off without cackling the entire time!

Anywho, Chloe proves again why she is such a force to be reckoned with in this alien and even more fun tentacle romance! There were several times I had to reference my Kindle edition to see if I heard what I heard. Yep, every time. So many laughs were mixed with a thrilling adventure from start to finish.

Greg does a fantastic job of delivering these words to hold us captive from start to finish. This can not be listened to as a standalone, so please listen in order to understand this wild ride.

Jacquie's Review:

I thoroughly enjoy Greg Boudreaux's narration, and this book was no exception. There is clear continuity from the previous books and even with the addition of several new characters, it was easy to know who was speaking.

River and Kai are adorable together. Kai is struggling with the fact that there is an assassin after River. It makes him feel powerless. His vulnerability is sweet and not entirely true. He shows his skills.
They are in an established, but whirlwind, relationship and take the next step in this book, which I loved. It just works for them.

The plot is fast-paced, with a couple of surprises which kept me hooked.

After all the teasing, we'll finally find out about this ceremony!

I'm hoping Benji's book isn't too far off.

Lesetiger's review:

So honestly, I very rarely read sci-fi books, but I love this series, which I highly recommend as audio!
It's best to read the books in order. The story of Kai and River continues here. It's wonderfully written and has everything a great story needs: Intriguing characters, humor, romance and suspense, and a phenomenal narrator.

Now that River's origins and heritage are known, a hitman is on his trail and Kai tries everything to make sure nothing happens to River. This is not so easy, as he discovers.

Did I mention that River and Kai are really hot together? And then there are some surprising twists that I wasn't expecting and it was heartbreaking at times.

Chloe Archer's writing style is great and the many references to movies and songs often made me smile.
An absolutely amazing book!

Great entertainment and Greg Boudreaux knocked it out of the park! Listening to this audiobook is an experience not to be missed. Greg reads very vividly with many different voices for the protagonists and I couldn't turn the audiobook off. I will certainly listen to this series more often, but now I really need volume 4!!!
