Short description from goodread :
How can a sexy marketing manager join forces with an Alpha Centauri male in Armani to save the planet-using hairspray, a
She's Touched by an Alien
Marketing manager Katherine "Kitty" Katt steps into the middle of what appears to be a domestic dispute turned ugly. And it only gets uglier when the man turns into a winged monster, straight out of a grade-Z horror movie, and goes on a killing spree. Though Kitty should probably run away, she springs into action to take the monster down.
In the middle of the chaos a handsome hunk named Jeff Martini appears, sent by the "agency" to perform crowd control. He's Kitty's kind of guy, no matter what planet he's from. And from now on, for Kitty, things are going to be sexy, dangerous, wild, and out of this world.
Wonderful! I loved this book, no problem at all with the vocabulary, you are immediately immersed in the story and what a story. Humor and full of action, I couldn’t stop before the end and I really want the next one.
Gini Koch managed to keep the things light even when the tension is really high.
Kitty is a strong willed heroine and she has good reasons to be with her family. While seeing a monster going on rampage she doesn’t flee but kill him with what she gets her hands on strange stuff sometimes, but quite effective. After this event she is “kidnapped” by an agency whose work is to take care of these aliens by killing them. Some could have been afraid but instead this woman wants to learn more and her intuition is really good, so much even than these “ good guys” want to recruit her.
Jeff is the first member of says agency she met, an empath and a gorgeous good looking alien. As soon as he saw her he declared she was his and he keeps reminding her of this fact. Strange to say at least ^^ fortunately for Kitty these aliens can’t lie and she is friend with one human member of the group so she is learning a lot and not every answers is good knowing because now the big boss of the bad guys wants her dead. All family and pets are put under protection… but who is protecting who when kitty’s words was just an illusion.
I can only recommend this book; the romance is well done and so touching, the story while full action packed is still funny. Once again Stella knew what I was going to love. You want something a bit different ^^ try this book.
