“It was entertaining!”
~ Under the Covers

Big purple space pirate accidentally kidnaps curvy human female while he was picking up samples of marine life to sell to collectors in his world and she was left to die in the middle of the ocean by her boyfriend.  What he gets is a feisty female who tests his temper at every turn.  No, this isn’t Suzanne writing this review!  I picked up this book at some point when it was free a while back and I had marked it down on my Roundabout Challenge with the purpose of cleaning up my digital TBR.  I’ve read Eve Langlais before and, generally, I like the humor in her books so I figured purple aliens would be just the same.

In some ways, yes that’s true.  This book had Ms. Langlais feel of being light hearted and a story that doesn’t take itself too seriously.  While I have read other books with some sort of scenario like this (the alien abduction), I didn’t have much of an issue with the premise here.  The differences in language and communication are addressed in a logical way.  Basically, I thought this was well put together and my brain had nothing to fight against.  Which is what I often do with these stories.  Logic tries to come in the picture.  But logic worked here to a point.  So I was happy.

What kept me from enjoying this more was the heroine.  I know the type of heroine here is somewhat of a staple in the genre (and in most paranormals) but she gets on my nerves.  I couldn’t even manage to feel bad about the original situation she found herself in and needed rescue from.  In the end, she’s probably my least favorite part of this story even though I still liked her at times.

However, this served one purpose.  It’s just a fun read with engaging and seamless writing.  It was entertaining!  Will I continue reading the series?  Most likely not.  But that’s not due to the author and has more to do with the fact that this is not usually my genre.

About Eve Langlais

~ New York Times and USA Today Bestseller

Hello, my name is Eve Langlais and I am an International Bestselling author who loves to write hot romance, usually with werewolves, cyborgs or aliens .

I should warn you, I have a twisted imagination and a sarcastic sense of humor something I like to let loose in my writing. While well known for my shifter stories, I am also extremely partial to aliens, the kind who like to abduct humans and then drive them insane...with pleasure. Or do you like something a little darker, more serious? Then check out my cyborgs whose battle with humanity have captivated readers worldwide.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

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.

I enjoy the sci fi alien romances but haven’t had much luck with this author’s books.

Glad you had a fun flight of fancy with a purple alien. I think I’ve got this one on my Kindle, too. I have read a few others later in the series and had a few chuckles. Yay for one more off the TBR pile.
