Summary

New York Times and USA Today best-selling author

Vin (aka Flame) can't believe he's in yet another holding cell. Stupid earthlings wouldn't know fun if it bit them in the hindquarters. Speaking of fun, the hot little number who claims she's a guard at the jail has been making his body respond in ways he's very happy about. If only she'd get on board with the plan and help him escape back to his ship. First, she'd have to believe he's an alien. Right now, she's taken to thinking he's crazy.

A Qurilixen World novella.

The perfect distraction for long drives.

I absolutely loved Vin and Angela's story. I couldn't stop laughing at his ice-cream antics. But when this guy decides he loves someone, he goes all out to provide for her and those she cares for. A great listen.

funny story

Flame comes to earth to have some fun and meet some girls. He tastes Ice cream for the first time and finds himself addicted to it. He is arrested by Angela. this is a lovely story. Flame is so naive about Earth and it's customs. I enjoyed this story and look forward to listening more in this series.

Another Entertaining Adventure

I love the Galaxy Mail Order bride stories. They are short entertaining novellas that have a real good feel to them. Flame meets Angela whilst experiencing a bit of a sugar rush from eating too much ice cream at the Ice Cream parlour and he ends up getting arrested. These books are so much fun and Kylie Stewart narrates this perfectly. If you are looking for some light hearted romance this is the book you!

I want someone like Flame!

This book is like a look at Earth from the outside. He knows but doesn't know about Earth. He is ready to leave, but falls in love with the planet. He is so funny and yet strong. I loved this book to the point of reading it twice.

Short and sweet

Flame is a cute paranormal alien short romance story. Flame is an interesting character whose period talk had me smiling. His attraction to the mall cop is cute and the insightful romantic gesture at the end had me sighing. The narrator did a great job. I received a free copy of this audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Oh this is crazy fun!🥰🤪🤣

“Flame,” by Michelle M. Pillow was such a fun story. The author shows us a hilarious and very plausible picture of an alien visiting Los Vegas and trying to fit in. The three guys, brothers, and cousins are on a vacation. Although the Galaxy Brides corporation is a big part of the Dragon Lord series that is about all the two series have in common. The clever premise that Galaxy Brides wants to promote bringing potential grooms to earth to find their brides.
The Galaxy Brides, the company providing the transportation and lodging, thinks they are looking for brides, however, they have no intention to marry, until they meet the ladies of earth; three special ladies. As in the first book Spark, there is a lot of numerous and crazy situations between the miscommunications of the aliens trying to fit into this world, compounded by the fact that Galaxy Brides decided that Las Vegas would be a crazy enough place to bring the aliens where everyone is a bit "different".
Flame (aka) Vin Glarkenbauer didn't know about ice cream and became instantly addicted. So what does he do? He tries to get more. However, he doesn't realize his behaviour makes him look deranged.That's about the time the mall cop shows up with a trainee in tow. Angela Borden is that trainee. The only thing more addicting to Flame than Sugar is Angela. He knows she is meant for him and will not rest until he finds her again. Vin (Flame) is naive when it comes to Earth Culture. Angela is someone you love to be around. She cares about people infinitesimally and she especially loves and cares for her Mother. This is a pretty steamy novella, Vin and Angela light up the pages! Highly recommended, Ms. Pillow’s books are fun, with action, humour, and sexy aliens! 🥰🤪🤣

This was a wonderful addition to the Qurilixen world series. The author weaves a great story that may have you laughing out loud. The narrator helps bring the characters to life within the story. Can't wait for the next one.

Great to Read and Listen

Once again Michelle M. Pillow has managed to provide us with another well written and narrated story in the Qurilixen world. The story line was great and the character work was fantastic. The narrator did a fabulous job bringing this story to life. Another great combination for reading and listening. I can't wait for the next one.

I received an ARC of this audiobook and I am voluntarily leaving my honest review.

An Alien with an Ice Cream Addiction

Flame is Vin's story. Vin is a troublemaker who just like to have a bit of fun. His cousin, Kal may have tricked his brother, Sev and him into a vacation via Galaxy Alien Mail Order Brides to Earth but Earth was beginning to sound like fun to him. Where else could Vin go after being banned from some of his vacation places being in a fight is his definition of fun.

This story has more humorous than the first book, Sparks. Vin got an to ice cream addition which got him arrested in an ice cream shop. After meeting Angela, a police trainee, who arrested him, Vin couldn't stop thinking about her. The interaction and conversation between Vin and Angela are just so hilarious.

It's just funny how Vin associated ice cream with having a period and that going to jail mean being encase in a wax prison. Vin and his brother and cousin have assimilated themselves based on Earth's commercials and human behavior.

Readers and listeners are going to have a blasted just chuckling and laughing at Vin and his brother and cousin interaction with earth's cultures.

The narrator, Kylie Stewart did a fabulous job. I just love that Australian accent given to Vin. It is quite hilarious especially when Vin claimed that he is from Canada. We all know what a Canadian accent sounds like. The narrator also did a great job with Angela, as being a serious character but also empathetic to Vin after finding out that Vin is an alien from space.

I was given this audiobook by the author. I have decided to voluntary to write an unbiased review of this book. I was not compensated or influence in any way in writing this review.

A fun escape

This is one of three books that run concurrently but can be read standalone. Vin was adorable. I loved that he was unaware of how good looking he was and how innocent he came across because his life experiences were so different. I read this in audio form and was thrilled to find I’ve been pronouncing most the terms and names correctly. A fun escape.

Enjoyable and hilarious

Such a quick listen that is enjoyable and transports you to Las Vegas and the shenanigans of the Intergalactic Dating agency brings. This was a funny listen. I just couldn’t help myself but laugh along while listening. It’s such a quick read and I found myself enjoying it till the very end. The narrator, Kylie does a great job elevating the story.

Lots of funny!!

Flame is the second book in the the Galaxy Alien Mail Order Brides series.
This was a quick, light read with a whole lot of funny in it. Vin's (aka Flame) earth vacation isn't going as planned when his ice cream addiction gets him hauled away by security. I listened to the audio version and the narration was fantastic. The ice cream bandit has a heart of gold and is definitely my fav so far!!
