His Fake Alien Fiancée by Patricia Eimer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Funny and sweet out of this world rom-com!
This is the second in the series and, shockingly, I love Perri and Brandt even more than Mattias and Corri. (Shh, don’t tell them – I still love them too!) It’s hard not to love these characters when they are so fun, open and plagued by over the top issues. There’s a new alien in town and things will never be the same…
“Today was day ninety-four of mornings she’d eventually need therapy for.”
Perri is sweet and loyal, the girl next door who rolls with all the new human-ness she is embracing. There is child-like innocence, and hilarity, when she stumbles over the basics we take for granted. There are foibles and strange routines that are so commonplace that looking at them through a completely unaware set of eyes is funny even as it gently pokes fun at our idiosyncrasies. Like her sister, she was woefully unprepared…
“…their Capridocian tutor Garibaldis had been talking out of his a**.”
As Perri embraces her new life, the last thing she wants is to go back home. Reaching out to her new best friend, Brandt was her only hope…
Brandt… Where do I start with this gentle man with a warrior spirit? He knows his track record with women wasn’t exactly stellar (commitment-phobic much?) but he is completely enamored with his new bestie and would do anything to help her… He is sweet and supportive and all kinds of sexy as he plays a role that comes way too naturally for it not to be real…
“Brandt didn’t need anyone else pointing him down the road to temptation. He already knew all the shortcuts.”
This was a rollicking good time from start to finish as inter-galactic relations meet Lucille Ball meet Prince Charming. It was pop culture meets romance with a huge dose of hilarity for spice. With a romantic couple that made me laugh and cheer on, I hope Perri and Corri have more relatives coming for a visit!
Made me laugh out loud:
“If the woman didn’t want to tell you why she wasn’t fine, you backed you’re a** right up and tried not to make any sudden movements.”
