“At just over 500 pages, UNIVERSAL ALIEN packs quite the hefty punch. You definitely don’t want to be caught off guard with this one” ~ Under the Covers

In book ten of the Katherine “Kitty” Katt series, the gang experiences the biggest problems ever faced before. How much time do you have because I could be here all day trying to list them all out but the most important thing to know is that Kitty still remains true to herself. Well, apart from the very strange fact that she finds herself in a world where aliens don’t exist and she’s married to Charles Reynolds. But that’s not all. There are two Kittys. I know, this is all too much to handle! But it’s okay because Kitty is still kicking butt when she (accidentally) offends the Australian prince minister and jeopardizes Jeff’s career in the process.

At just over 500 pages, UNIVERSAL ALIEN packs quite the hefty punch. You definitely don’t want to be caught off guard with this one. With Koch’s vivid imagination and fun, playful side, this book is brimming with plenty of action and aliens but is also stepped in politics and diplomacy as well. To me, this doesn’t feel like a strictly sci-fi book. Jeff and Kitty have a wonderful romance, but Koch’s writing actually reminds me more of an Urban Fantasy novel with its upbeat authorial voice. Basically, it had all a reader would want in an intriguing read.

P.S. Daniel Dos Santos continues to make the most beautiful, eye-catching covers around. This book is amazing from start to finish.

I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene ( I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!
