How to Date an Alien by Magan Vernon

Product DetailsReview:  How to Date an Alien by Magan Vernon

I like science fiction if a romance is in there somewhere and I like an occasional young adult book so I took a chance on this story.  I’m glad I did.  There’s nothing particular to place it higher than a number of other similar books but I liked the characters, I like the premise and I liked the conclusion.  My only negative is the same thing I find lacking in many books and that’s the fact that it’s part of a series so the story isn’t completely told in this one book.  I like beginnings, middles, and endings.  Still, this book qualified more than most.  It was complete in itself and I’d not have known that there was more if the author hadn’t shown previews of future books.  So I guess that’s not a negative after all.

It’s the story of a service brat whose parents divorced so she doesn’t see her dad all that much.  But when she needs a summer internship to make her college application look good she turns to good old dad and asks if she can intern wherever he works because, though she doesn’t know a lot about his job she does know it’s secret so it must be the stuff colleges like to see on applications.

Her dad agrees and she discovers he works with aliens at a secret base in the southwestern desert.  More importantly, she falls for one of the aliens and that’s frowned upon.  The fact that the alien is a prince and his  mother doesn’t like the romance any more than base personnel do makes it even worse.  But they persist and become a couple.

It’s a fun read.  Lots of action, the right amount of smooching and friends who are both supportive and those who are not.  Mostly, though, is the action.  Like I said, it’s a fun read.  I give it 3 stars, maybe 4.
