A fun, sexy novella about an alien who is abandoned on Earth and the man who rescues him.
- Review by Cindi
Taz is an alien. He jumped at the chance to come to Earth on vacation from his home planet of Trygos to spend time with Vorlod, a fellow Trygoshean who Taz has had his eyes on for quite some time. Taz is lonely and thinks that maybe Vorlod could be the one. When they get to Earth, however, Taz finds out exactly what kind of alien/man Vorlod really is. He leaves Taz high and dry for a fellow alien who conveniently had been traveling on the same spaceship to Earth. It becomes clear almost immediately that Vorlod's invitation is a big set up to make the other one jealous. So what can Taz do? He is stuck a million miles away from home with no money, no clothes, no way to contact anyone he knows back home. He is stuck in a big city all alone. At the point of despair, Taz is wandering from window to window on the observation deck of the Empire State Building when he is suddenly shoved and falls into the arms of Reed, a handsome human that Taz had been checking out earlier.
This is obviously not meant to be taken seriously but if one can suspend any and all belief for a couple of hours it is an enjoyable read. Taz is adorable right down to his stripes and his furry little tail. Reed is the strong one and is Taz's protector. There is insta-love that I normally don't like but I figured if I'm reading a story about an alien and a human falling in love I can overlook that part. :) I love the cover.
Overall, a fun story. I will be checking out others by these authors.
My rating: 3.75 out of 5 stars.
