“High school senior Alex Bianchi’s estranged father gets her an internship at Circe Operations Center to pad her college applications. But Circe isn’t your typical military base. It’s an alien-run operation center and not all of the aliens are friendly, especially the one that tries to kill Alex on her first day. When Ace, a dark-eyed Caltian, enters and saves the day, she can’t help but be drawn to him. Can these star-crossed lovers survive when they’re on the brink of intergalactic war?”
This is a cute and fun story. With great action and mysteriousness around every corner, dating an alien is harder than what you think.
What I adored most about this story is how much it reminded me of Men in Black but with a high school setting and teens. Alex thinking she doing an military internship, she finds herself in a whole new world she did not know exist. Alex is quick to accept it with loads of questions. I too, feel that I would react the same way. Alex is smart and knows exactly what to ask. She doesn’t fool around but ask straight to the point.
The love interest developed just the way I like it. Ace is an alien who’s mysterious attitude attract me right away. The way he answer questions hastily, or answer questions with questions is enough to make me lose my mind and go after him. Once Alex learns who he is, the romance sizzles up into pure love.
I enjoyed the action, especially at the end. With ?a girl leading the fight, it made me giddy to see Alex fighting for who she loves no matter what the cost. Plus, a girl who can fly a fight jet, who wouldn’t want to be in her shoes.
How To Date An Alien is a fantastic story that engulfs the reader. Filled with a burning romance that is actually fought for, I fell for the story. Amazing descriptions of the worlds of beyond, How To Date An Alien is awesome!
I give it 4 BITES!
