A unique and amusing story that was longer and far more fleshed out than expected!

The details about the alien beings and their societies were fascinating and intriguing.

Marsha the Martian was delightful and quirky in trying to discover Earth. While Sophie was kind and naive from her sheltered upbringing. I actually related to Sophie and her sisters controlling parents, and feelings she had of not belonging and feeling like you're playing catch-up in life. But the whimsical nature of the story k

This was a cute story.

I liked the effort Marsha put in to try and learn human customs, but I personally like her the way she is. Sophie's such a sweet character and was at times just as naive as Marsha. Together they were great.

While being cute and funny, this romance between an alien and a human manages to pack in some thoughts on differences, assumptions, and prejudices. There’s enough world-building to get a good sense of Marsha’s home world and why she perceives things as she does. I liked the different twist to teleportation and bodies, which illustrates why folks might become attracted to Marsha and how she gets by without undue attention. Sophie, the human, is incredibly naïve and inexperienced in a lot of thing ...more

Totally enjoyable and surprising plot. This "unrealistic" romance with Sophie (speech language pathologist) and Marsha (alien) completely hooked me and dragged me along willingly to the HEA ending. The touches of angst, humour, romance and sex between an ultra shy earthling and a super smart and extraordinary alien was so smartly written, I forgot the sci-fi angle - wrapped up in the family dynamics, blossoming romance and room mate drama. Isn't it wonderful when love conquers all? Just the righ ...more

(Minor spoilers may appear below.)

I find My Little Green Girlfriend to be a (mostly) likable and adorable read. The first half, though, appeals to me far more than the second, which starts to feel more unrealistic and stilted as it moves along. When I thought this read would be emotionally and romantically centered I became excited, but it becomes more and more physical in the second half, to the point emotions and depth are sacrificed and each woman's anticipation for the other is purely (or no

This was really cute and sweet. Not your average alien romance. In a teleportation mishap, an alien (Marsha) ends up on Earth and Sophie happens to be in the right place at the right time. There was a lot to enjoy here.

Sophie, the human, has a rather unique background that plays into the story quite a bit, but which results in her being sexually inexperienced. Marsha, the alien, is a senator on her home planet and kind of a sex tourist (while traveling to different planets she likes to experien

There isn't enough FF SFR out there so I jumped on this book when I found it. At 80k words this book is nicely fleshed out and doesn't feel rushed at all—I really felt like I could take my time and immerse myself in Marsha and Sophie's world. The themes in the story are intelligently explored and the romance and character development is realistic, without the saccharine tropes that bug me about romance novels in general. But it's still overall lighthearted with well-written humor. I hope the aut ...more

This story I quite enjoy reading because it was totally different on how these two fall in love. Even though they are from two different planets they click well with the each.  I found myself drawn to Marsha's world (I just realize about her name aka Martian but she isn't from Mars) and she bring her culture to enteract with Sophie inwhich she only looking for her true love. This book have other characters that you will enjoy. It is worth the read.

I received an ARC of this book.

My Little Green Delight

What a quirky, sweet sci-fi romance! Despite the cover, the alien romantic interest is not green! In fact, when she is on Earth, she takes on a human form, nothing like the cover. This is a surprisingly charming romance, where the couple in question fall for each other naturally and gradually, with a little hesitation here and there about if they should, how fast to go, or what to expect when from the other person. I like the way they always considered each other's thought

Brilliant!

This story is simply briliant. The author creates a fictional world in which aliens occupy numerous planets across the galaxy, and use teleportation to travel between those planets. The novel explores how those alien races have evolved and developed, reveals their social customs, and recounts how they have organized themselves into an interplanetary alliance - and how the beings of that alliance might view the humans of modern-day planet Earth, which is far too socially, politically, a

This is a very well written tale about finding love where you're expecting the least. The characters are well developed, and the storyline flows from the pages. If you are looking for a feel-good tale of lesbian love with a happily ever after, you should love My little green girlfriend.

NB: it was not my favorite from this author though, because of the rhythm and the maybe a bit "too quick to fall in love" characters, so that's not exactly my cup of tea, but if you love happy ever after books the

The main characters make a cute couple and the tale of their developing relationship is heart warming. With Marsha being an alien and Sophie being one third of a set of triplets there are several complications in life to keep things interesting. That said, some of the supporting cast, e.g. Sophie's parents, are very one-dimensional. When these characters appear in the story line the plot tends to sag. Still a very good read ending with a well deserved HEA. ...more

Simple sweet romance

When finding herself on earth, Marsha ends up finding the only person that would befriend her and take her home. It’s a cute story and a quick read. There’s no true angst or strife between the women, except for Sophie’s own internal struggle. I did enjoy her descriptions of other worlds and technology that she has.

Quirky, fun and unpredictable

Hugely surprised how much I enjoyed this fun, imaginative story. The romance is well paced and the possibilities of what can happen when the limitations of earth/humans are removed made for some great plot twists. Entertaining and interesting from start to end.

A female from another planet arrives on earth!

Different story to begin with and how it ends is a little fantasy also. Marsha the alien confronts a female Sophie ,who is just learning how to cope after leaving the farm. What follows is a is struggle for both of them, Marsha who has to learn a new culture and Sophie who has learn that she is love with another female! Enjoy!

Alien love

This was a different kind of romance. Sophia Marsha and each other on the street. I was in the middle of the street. Morrissey is in the early end who falls in love with Sophie. The plan is good the characters are really good and I highly recommend this book.
