3.5* Overall an enjoyable book. The writing was clever and the dialog witty, but as the book progressed, the author seemed to get a little too enamored of her snappy lines. I enjoyed the story, especially the relationship(s), and there was plenty to smile about. But if I'm getting nit-picky, I'd have to say this author needs to watch being a little too cute and a little too wordy. Also, there were some plot holes and some mental leaps I couldn't follow. However, like a good action movie I found it easy to suspend disbelief and just enjoy the ride. This isn't a book to read for realism. It's a book to read when you want love, aliens and mayhem all in one place. I plan to read the next one, Alien Tango, as soon as it's released.
