Aliens, Smith and Jones
“It’s not all about serving coffee and typing reports.”
Working for a secret organisation specialising in alien cover-ups, Connor Smith is no stranger to the abnormal or dangerous. His love life on the other hand… not so exciting. Until he reluctantly agrees to a blind date and meets the perfect bloke, Jason.
Things are finally falling into place for Connor, so of course t...more
it's a pity. some good elements here, but i have a vile temper and zero tolerance for books who posit that a hundred year old men-in-black style agency would employ a man dumb enough to suspect that an alien disguised as a bookseller and living peacefully on our planet since the 17th century was the vanguard of a super-crafty invasion.
because, you know, after nearly four hundred years, e.t ...more
Conner Smith is an agent at Primrose an organization that hunts and keeps track of Aliens or alien artefacts. Connor is a busy little bee with no time for a social/love life. That doesn’t mean his best-friend Isa isn’t always trying to hook him up, ...more
Some things didn't really gel for me in this story. Firstly describing Noah's true state as being like 'fl ...more
I suppose this was ok. It was just painfully predictable, with basic, unexciting writing. The characters were cute, but one of the main characters spent half the book in a relationship with someone else and I barely felt any spark between him and the second main character. Further, there was just too much assuming and non-communicating going on. In fact, a lot of the book is predicated on it and it didn't make any sense to me. All in all, I found the whole thing uninspiring, even if not quite ...more
Connor is an agent of Primrose and the PA of a well-known lieutenant within the organization. He's worked hard at his job, doing detective work in the office and field finding aliens and alien artifacts, and the fact that he was handpicked for his job and works well with his very picky boss shows how well regarded he is by his colleagues. He works strange hours, just like regular detectives, which leaves little time for a love life. His best friend ...more
First, dermis is a term first use in the 19th century, which is several hundred years later than when Noah did his transformation. Next, Van Leeuwenhoek did not publish his work with the microscope until 1673(c). At that time merely discussing the size & shape of the body's cells was a big deal. ...more
Noah being a Rei from another planet that is basically all energy based and not a "fleshy" life form, gets stranded on Earth. He's beyond the normal amount of time, and must sacrifice his original form to become "human". He has lived on this planet now for 300 + years and has only felt one "energy" connection with one other...until Conner.
Conner works for Primrose, which is an undercover agency to protect stranded aliens from humans ...more
The story follows Connor who works as an agent for 'Primrose' an agency who monitors and polices alien activity. He's has a couple of funny 'episodes' where he feels a strange tingling sensation and almost blacks out, but puts it down to stress at work. Through a friend and work col ...more

But, just recently somebody is getting to the artifacts before they can. On top of that worry, Conner seems to have gained a stalker who he has a very strange connection with, is it friend or foe? Noah has managed to stay under Primrose’s radar since the company came into being ...more
Connor is an agent with Primrose. A secret agency in charge of all things aliens. He’s currently trying to find out who keeps stealing alien artifacts. Those things in the wrong hands are incredibly scary. His job doesn’t allow for time for any real relationships to develop. So his best friend tricks him into a meeting guy named Jason. Jason is gorgeous and funny. Connor is a little surprised someone like Jason is so interested in him. Especially after all the cancellations he has to ma ...more
OK. I have *no* idea why this is on the Lesser Known list, because it's; a pretty good book! The characters are likable, the plot is engrossing, there's suspense and action and a very sweet relationship at the core. It really needs to be more widely read! I've read books that were no where NEAR as good yet have tons of ratings. So read this! Get it better known! :)
Anyway. The book. It's a bit like a sprinkle of Torchwood, another sprink ...more
I believe this is my first book by this author and I look forward to finding more!
A lot of holes in logic in the sci-fi mystery portion of the story, but I didn't mind because Noah and Connor make a lovely couple. The relationship developed slowly but I liked that they took the time to get to know each other.
Noah Jones was stranded on earth in 1648. He has spent his time conver ...more
A little bit of love and romance.
Connor makes a connection with an alien, who turns out to be Noah. They have a hard time of it at the beginning.
The whole fumbling with something new stage. Eventually they work it out. I think the part about a first kiss is soooo
Cute. I was hoping the tale would be a bit longer. Found myself falling into t ...more
It can be read as a romance or as a SF novel with some good action and humor. I wish there was a little more development of the relationship between Noah and Smith, things like taking a walk in the park instead of just the mental connection forming a relationship. Smith was a bit dense at times and you did wonder a bit about him being a very good field agent, but he held his own in the end. I liked Isa and her friends with Smith.
I'd like to see more ...more
