How to Date an Alien by Magan Vernon

Format: Kindle ebook
Rating: 5 Stars
Reviewer: Laurel

High school senior Alex Bianchi’s estranged father gets her an internship at Circe Operations Center to pad her college applications. But Circe isn’t your typical military base. It’s an alien-run operation center and not all of the aliens are friendly, especially the one that tries to kill Alex on her first day. When Ace, a dark-eyed Caltian, enters and saves the day, she can’t help but be drawn to him. Can these star-crossed lovers survive when they’re on the brink of intergalactic war?

This book is brilliant. There’s no other way to put it. From the first page to the last I was barely able to put it down.

Seeking college entrance, Alex gets her father to arrange an intern for her at Circe. Little does she know that Circe is an airbase – for aliens! On arrival, an alien almost kills her, and she is saved by another alien. One who is classified dangerous. As things turn out, he pulls strings to get her to intern with him – running security obs on aliens’ websites. Yes. Aliens DO live among us.

Will their budding relationship survive the scrutiny of their peers – and more importantly, interstellar relationships?

There is very little that I didn’t like about this book – if anything at all. It is very well written, each of the characters is multi-faceted and engaging, and the plot is well constructed. I will definitely look up the rest of the series – although I’ll admit that the title of the second book makes my heart sink.

This is definitely aimed at a YA audience, but there’s no reason why adults young-at-heart can’t read it too. Fabulous stuff.
