“Alex is completely alpha male delicious.” ~Under the Covers
Special agents and politicians, sci fi and paranormal. This book was going for sexy and mysterious and although I think it got there, there was a little something missing that I can’t put my finger on.
Special Task Force Alexei Night is assigned the task of getting information out of Interstellar Councilwoman Briana Michaels. She’s human and has always expressed her views of vampire rights. But now there’s pressure to make her change things to protect her family. Alexei, being a vampire, is passing for a bad guy and a thief and offering to be her transportation.
Their attraction is instant and when he should be gathering information, he’s looking for ways to get her naked. What these two had was explosive sexual chemistry. Their mind connection was nice as well, but I think I was missing something to find their love real in the end.
I do enjoy how Ms. Day does sci fi, it’s not overdone with crazy out there creatures and wars. Just a touch of planet travel and assistant robots.
For the short amount of time the author had to develop the characters, I can say that I got a good feeling for who they were and I got to like them! Especially Alex, who is completely alpha male delicious.
This being the last one in this series, I’ll now have to move on to another one of Ms. Day’s series.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
