Well, this was truly horrible.

Here is a very boring story of an alien woman who comes from a galaxy far, far away because all the men on her planet became so delicate, they lost interest in flirting (it's when a man randomly puts your hand on his penis bulging in his jeans so you can feel he is a manly man, or can't concentrate on a conversation with you because BOOBS), and they generally became so unmanly they can't now produce children, and if they do produce children it's 'females' only.

The book had some good parts and bad parts, but on balance, I wouldn't recommend it. Wonderful plot and story line.

I loved the idea of a single father raising his son, on the run and in hiding from wealthy evil relatives. I liked Zara, the alien. The weakness here was in the author's writing style and dialogue. The story just plodded along. I was not surprised or delighted at anything. I would have preferred a little more wit or interest in the dialogue. It wasn't as fun or heartwarming as I had

I felt this book had the potential to be so much better. I liked the premise very much but it just seemed to plod along without any real heart. It was written in a light way but wasn't light hearted. I feel a few more humorous lines would have helped. But it was okay to read on a sunny afternoon.

Couldn't finish it, so disgusted with endless plot loop day after day for two main characters I didn't even skip ahead and read the ending.

I loved Judi McCoy's Goddess trilogy, and so far, I'm not disappointed in her Starlight trilogy.

For some reason, I like the idea of Zara and her fellow travelers being matched to specific guys on Earth, though I do wish the author would've explained much sooner than she did how exactly they were matched and why specifically they needed to procreate with Earth men (it's not enough for me to know that most of her planet is sterile; I have to know why the planet is sterile, how they came to be that

It had a plot, and sometimes it could be very funny (and of course there was lots of smut). Overall, it wasn't bad as romance novel go.

I loved this book. I don't know why, but the name Daniel Murphy sounds soooo much more trustable than Robert Lotello. Probably shouldn't judge by a name.
