How to date an Alien ( My Alien romance1) by Magan Vernon

Hello to all!

                   for this week review i'm back to the trend that i unconsciously started some weeks ago: the paranormal romance including alien(s).....i'm now free of it but i did read several that i wanted to share with you before changing again. I have been surprised to own so many alien romance (ranging from PG to erotic ones) and i have been enjoying reading several of them in a row to change a little from shifters who stay my favourite.

Today i'm sharing with you one of the softest alien romance i've read and enjoyed this summer, if you are lucky you could even grab the digital copy free on smashwords ( and perhaps on amazon but i can't guaranty it as it depends on where you live). The series is even complete so  if you want more you could indulge it this summer without delay.

Happy reading!

Short description from goodreads :

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?

My opinion:
          Somehow i’m finding myself reading more paranormal roamnce with aliens than i imagined owning, this time i picked a YA one and Magan Vernon did a great job i think  to create a univers quite fun with a whole range of aliens of all colors and kind (  i’m still smilling at the idea of the orange “plush” one) and the story  while not fully original  still give you a great time as teh author  is making a comparaison between the aliens organisation and an high school social division

I wanted a light read  this summer and this one is just perfect in that sense... there are things that don’t make sense because really  what kind of father would bring his chil  to confront aliens without telling her about it a minimum, without ghiving her a list of what to do or not to do BEFORE she encounters the first one. Yes it’s a secret operation but still.... so yes that parts and some other don’t make sense but at the same time it didn’t bother me at all as i was fully enjoying the story. I would have loved to get a little more of the alien side about teh situation in Circe because for the majority of the book we have the main Hero Ace, the doctor and then some other that speak a little but it’s mostly from  Alex side and the interns ( bad Riley and malcom!)’ one so majoritary human.

Alex is an heroine to like as she is intelligent and still quite naive but also determined when it comes to her love and friends.. she is a normal human girl who prefer to study than to hang out and i could easily related with her and imagine her situation. Ace on the other side is still very mysterious we don learn part of his past, his identity but  that’s so little!

The story is quite fast paced but it’s a rythm that works wonderfully with this story so i would be curious to follow up this series as i’m sure there is still a lot to learn ( book 2 and 3 are already available) So if you want a fun and enjoyable reads  this is one that could be great to try especially if you can try it for free ^^

Score:  3,5/5
