Want a good read for the weekend? Like soft sci-fi? Romance? Hot aliens? A female lead who ISN'T perfect but far from dull? I suggest HOW TO DATE AN ALIEN by Magan Vernon.
I read this book months ago, but I still occasionally have fond thoughts about Alex and Ace. I'm SO looking forward to book 2 of Magan's alien series, and I never thought I could think an alien was swoonworthy, but Ace is YUM-MEE. Here's the quick rundown:
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?
One of my favorite parts:
"Okay, my turn." He put his hands on both of my arm rests, leaning in so that his face was only a few inches from mine. He smelled like peppermint tea and the breeze after a snowstorm. It was the most wonderful thing I had ever smelled and I wanted to inhale all of him.Want to know how Alex responded to Ace? (the uber hot alien who is NOT green, or slimey, or has 6 arms.) You'll have to read the book to experience more of their intergalactic chemistry.
"Do you," his eyes drew up, drinking me in before meeting my stare, "like me?"
