When our otherworldly brothers arrive at last they expect a warm welcome…
Posey Quinn has always believed there was more to the world than what she can see. So when she arrives in Stargazer with her head full of conspiracies and high-end hairspray, she isn’t entirely surprised to learn that instead of donating eggs for tuition money, she is being asked to make an alien fall in love with her, and become an ambassador for humankind. What she doesn’t expect is how irresistible Bond is, and how hard it will be not to lose her own heart to the man who plays her body like a violin.
Bond is on Earth to fill one human female with as much pleasure as she can bear, a mission he’s finding very agreeable. But he’s not here to fall in love. Tasked with using his powers of human seduction to glean what he can about Earth and its inhabitants, Bond knows that if the planet’s resources are worthy and its residents aren’t, his days of pleasing Posey will soon be at an end.
What is it about alien romance novels that is so darn entertaining? This was my first read by Tasha Black, but I was utterly charmed by Bond and can’t wait to binge the rest of this series, which has the most awesome series name, by the way: Stargazer Alien Mail Order Brides.
Posey Quinn thinks she’s in the town of Stargazer to donate eggs as a way to pay for her college tuition. But what she and her friends soon discover is that they’ve been selected to become alien mates. If they’re successful in bonding with the alien men, they’ll receive a huge payment (and feel warm and fuzzy about uniting worlds and what not).
Skeptic Posey isn’t so keen on the idea at first—but she really needs the money and Bond is totally hot. He’s also charming and sweet: he and his fellow aliens learned about humans by studying pop culture (especially TV/movies) from the 1980s (when their Earth forms were being grown), so everything from the origin of their names to their vocabulary is Totally 80s. I loved this! The story lost a little energy for me during the Fall Festival scenes, but there’s plenty of humor that had me laughing and highlighting dialogue in my Kindle (always a good sign)!
There’s also quite a bit of insta-love going on, but the comedy in the book along with some pretty steamy scenes really worked for me. Bond is the sweetest, cutest alien (that’s a sentence I’ve never written before in my life). I’m a new Tasha Black fan and can’t wait to read about Posey’s friends finding alien love too!
