Katherine "Kitty" Katt is the Commander of the Airborne Centaurian Division, which is a group of extremely good-looking Alpha-Cetaurians (or A-C's) who use their powers to save the world. It's been five months since "Operation Fugly" and Kitty is happily dating Martini, her sexy A-C boyfriend who is also a high-ranking Commander. However, with a jealous lover after her and a host of mastermind stalkers, she's in

Awwwww Yeah!!! Gini Koch has done it again!

Alien Tango has been one of my most eagerly awaited books this year; I literally jumped up and down when it arrived in my mailbox. I mean, that cover is gorgeous - it must have great things inside, right? Right!!!

It's six months after the events in Touched by an Alien (my gushing review here), and things have been relatively quiet. Kitty, or Commander Katt now, has been putting out small fires here and there but nothing big. She's been working with her

Much like its predecessor, Alien Tango is a fun, fluffy romp, complete with sexy aliens, wacky action, snarky dialogue, and a whole lot of fun.

Picking up a few months after the end of Touched By An Alien, we rejoin our unlikely heroine, Katherine “Kitty” Katt, as she settles into her job as the Airborne commander of the Centaurion Division, also known as a troupe of exiled, extremely good-looking aliens from Alpha Centauri. Things are going well between Kitty and her sexy alien boyfriend, Jeff M

This second book in the series continues in much the same way as the first, which is to say it's cheesy and not particularly good in any measurable sense of the word. Yet, I'm still reading it. I'm not sure why. It must be fulfilling some need I wasn't aware I had, because I am going to move on to the third book in the series.

Kitty continues to baffle me as a character. In my review of "Touched by an Alien" I complained that there was no basis for her archetypal behavior -- tough chick, witty,

Yet again Kitty and Martini thrilled me with action, passion and otherworldly madness. Yet again Alpha team is threatened with death threats and Kitty responds in her usual wacky way including throwing alligators into a crowded room.
Kitty and Martini's relationship grows deeper in this book but their parents don't seem to be all that thrilled for them. The chemistry between this couple is on fire though. I'd liken them to rabbits on Viagra. I've well and truly fallen for this couple but not ju

Well, if you could see my notes page, you would either go “What the bleep?” or laugh at how ridiculous it is that I take notes. Ok, let me make my point.

A great sequel to Touched by an Alien.

Kitty can't seem to catch a break. Only five months since she destroyed the most powerful superbeing, she finds herself in the middle of 3 evil plans. Lucky for us she is up to it.

I just love Kitty's plans. They are all so insane but they actually work, even if there are some side effects. Like the plan with the alligators. :-)

We also meet Kitty's high school boyfriend, Brian. And her best friend Chuckie. That means we have Jeff acting all jealous and posses

Alien Tango is the second book in the Katherine “Kitty” Katt series by Gini Koch and the sequel to Touched by an Alien. It has been six months since Kitty found out that humans are not alone on this planet and there are those who aren't exactly friendly towards the human race. Kitty has had several rude encounters with Super beings from outer space, including single handedly killing one herself with a pen, then coming up with the idea that hair

It's been five months since Katharine "Kitty" Katt's fast and crazy introduction to the reality of aliens on Earth, five months of being Commander of Airborne in Centaurion Division and enjoying explosive sex with her gorgeous alien boyfriend and head of Field, Jeff Martini. Her high school reunion is coming up and both Jeff and her longtime best friend, Chuckie Reynolds, are encouraging her to go.

One of my favorite debut authors to come out this year is Gini Koch with her over the top and loopy sci-fi book, Touched by an Alien. In Touched by an Alien, we were introduced to Katherine, “Kitty” Katt and how her life went into a tail spin when she finds out up close and personal that there are aliens on Earth, as well as an undercover Men in Black type organization keeping the Earth safe. These Men in Black are also aliens, and considered to be to die for eye candy to Kitty. One in particula ...more

I have a new favorite author, and her name is Gini Koch. Her books will have you laughing out loud, grinning from ear to ear and chuckling your way through them. Martini will have you drooling and Kitty will have you cheering. Martini and Kitty are the best hero/heroine combo to come around in a very long time. They have spunk, charisma, and a sizzle that will leave you wanting more. Martini is one of the few nice guy heroes that I adore, and he's in the running for the book boyfriend of the yea ...more

I absolutely loved the first book in the series, “Touched by an Alien,” and was a little worried that “Alien Tango” would be unable to live up to the high expectations I had for it. It turns out I had nothing to fear.

“Alien Tango” picks up about five months after the events of TBAA. Kitty is more comfortable in her role as commander of Airborne Division, she has the perfect relationship with Alpha Centaurion Jeff Martini, and the alien parasite problem seems to be on the decline. It’s the prover

Katt is officially part of the team, actually one of the few alphas, and one of the only women in the field. Things have somewhat slowed down after what she calls operation fugly. She and Jeff take some vacation but overall have just spent the past 5 months as a couple, while of course living in a huge alien compound LOL. Jeff's parents dont want him with a human and are hassling him endlessly, Katt's mom wants her to keep her options open without being completely clear why. When an out of the b ...more
Our Kitty Katt has been Commander of the Airborne Division for several months now in Alien Tango. She still fights evil superbeings alongside her A-C boyfie, Jeff Martini, but lately things have been a bit on the quiet side.

But of course, Kitty being Kitty, all the psychos and megalomaniacs want to hang with her so it's not long until she's thrust into a 'situation' that involves TWO separate plots that are running simultaneously (again).

I'm going to be honest here: The alligators made the book. I mean, alligators! ALLIGATORS! And they have great names like "Alliflash" and "Gigantigator". Come on! You know I can't resist randomness like that!

There's also that Martini guy. Mr. I'm a Firecracker in Bed. Rawrrrr! Yep, I like guys that know how to take care of their ladies, too. I also like purses big enough to store weaponry in, cars that fit more people than a clown car (but no clowns, please. Clowns scare me) and main characters

Humour and UF, what more can you ask for? The second in the Kitty Katt series of UF/SciFi/Humour books. In this book Kitty, Jeff and the rest of the gang are trying to figure out what returned to Earth with a shuttle full of astronauts. You just have GOT to love a somewhat hapless heroine named Kitty Katt. And yeah, you also have to figure that the reason she IS hapless is that her parents actually gave her a stripper's name. Fortunately, that "aspect" of her name isn't pounded into the ground, ...more

I just finished reading this book, and really enjoyed it. It's the second book in the Alien series starring, Kitty Katt. I can't help but chuckle at her name. It gets me every time, lol.

Just like the first book, it's filled with a multi-layered plot that has Kitty, the A-C guys, and several government departments running around like crazy while trying to outrun the bad guys, attempting not to get blown up, avoiding a clingy ex who still wants her, some alien haters, a disembodied alien entity, M

Another fun filled instalment. This time Kitty and her aliens have to battle a group of alien-hating humans, get rid of a crazy stalker and find out what a disembodied space entity is doing on earth. We also get to meet the rest of Jeff's family, and Kitty finds herself another adversary in her future mother-in-law.

All up this was another light and fun read, but I still have the same issues with this book that I had with the last. Kitty is just that little bit too good; she works out everything

428 pages of pure adrenalyne pulse-pounding hyper-speed whatchumaycallit ferocious... stuff.

OK, not my usual sort of science-fiction, I like mine a little more laid back, but the author does manage to keep her readers hooked at every page.
Fast-action paced, lots of humor, and some saucy sex (OK, maybe even a bit too much in chapter 9)... damn, that means I won't be able to pass it on the the niece for a couple of years yet.

Obwohl die Begeisterung des Neuen inzwischen etwas nachgelassen hat, liebe ich Kitty noch immer. Sie ist als Protagonistin so klug, witzig und spannend wie bekloppt und klischeehaft und fesselt damit meine Aufmerksamkeit über Stunden hinweg problemlos.
Der neue Feind kommt zwar etwas weniger charismatisch und bösartig daher, als es in Band 1 der Fall war, dafür fiebert man lange auf die Enthüllung, wer überhaupt die Fäden dieser neuen verworrenen Intrige zieht.

This was another fun entry in the series but I felt like it could have benefited from being a bit shorter. I don't know what I'd cut in particular but there were times when I felt like it was dragging. I love the banter between the main characters and it was really fun when Martini's dad gets in on it as well. Those parts of the books are great fun. I've decided that I have to think of Kitty as kind of an old school, female James Bond - one who solves every problem, figures out all the connectio ...more
