Summary

From New York Times best-selling author Michelle M. Pillow....

Mining ash on a remote planet where temperatures reach hellish degrees doesn't leave Kal (aka Spark) much room for dating. Lucky for this hard-working man, a new corporation, Galaxy Alien Mail-Order Brides, is ready to help him find the girl of his dreams. Does it really matter that he lied on his application and really isn’t looking for long-term but rather some fast action?

Earth women better watch out. Things are about to heat up.

Good

I got this one on audible. I don’t look at the length of time the books i buy are and was a little disappointed at how quick the book ended. Sorry, but in audible, this book is not worth the money. But, if you get it in paperback or in kindle, then give this book a go. I already got the next couple in the series and am going to listen to them now. Hope you enjoy them.

Aliens in Vegas

3 aliens arrive in Vegas for a little bit of fun and along the way Kal (aka Spark) meets Carrie. We also met Kal’s cousins Vin and Sev, whom I’m sure we’ll learn more about in later books. This was a real fun audiobook and I had a smile on my face throughout (mainly due to Kal’s naivety). I giggled out loud a few times too. Okay, it’s silly but it’s exactly the type of escapism I need at the moment! Good start to the series and looking forward to reading more!

Great for a steamy laugh

I enjoyed this one and the laughs that it gave me. The misunderstandings that came from the main character was definitely enjoyable and I am interested in continuing to see if the rest of the books follow suit. I didn't enjoy the narrator 100% but I think it was just me, and it wasn't enough to put me off the rest of the book.

Well it could use some work

I’m trying the next book because it’s cheap and short. But this really was quite boring and did not hold my attention. I just ended it and can only tell you that aliens come to America, don’t grasp the language and slang. She gets kidnapped he rescues her and we all live happily ever after. Yeah it needs reworking. This is my honest review and I paid for my copy of this book! It’s not worth a credit and really not worth $ either

Interesting listen

This was definitely a unique perspective into dating 😂 Sick of their job on a remote planet, Kal aka Spark (because it will cause lust in the ladies obviously) is roped into taking a trip to a much more diverse planet with a new corporation called Galaxy Alien Mail Order Brides. It doesn’t matter that he isn’t looking for long term and his friends lied on his application to get him there in the first place. They touch down in Las Vegas where Carrie is stuck playing the doting cousin at a wedding. While dodging her unlucky date Carrie overhears Kal describing a lovely bondage type scene to another woman as a way to win her to his bed. She’s baffled that this hot guy would not only think it’s ok to talk to a woman in that manner but that he actually thinks that’s a way to win her over. She hasn’t got a clue just how different Kal is from regular guys until days later he has tracked her down. A quick and light read/listen.

This book was enjoyable to listen to.

This book was definitely enjoyable to listen to. The interpretation of what the male aliens thought women wanted as so funny.

Was surprised

I didn’t know what I would think about a futuristic novella… Well I loved it. It made me laugh and more than one occasion. Great insight on how things would be for someone who has never seen idiotic humans besides on TV😂 I am now sucked into needing more. Steamy scenes but still a solid story. Don’t make negative comments if you don’t like steaming signs just remember I gave you a warning.

Such a lol fun alien read

This was such a fun read. I laughed so hard at times. Who knew aliens could be so sexy? And the hero’s accent was enough to make you melt. The narrator did such an excellent job. It was made more humorous because of the innocence of the alien to Earth’s ways and also the way he dressed. The ending was so exciting. I love this author and all the unique varieties in genres she’s able to pull off!

Crazy Named Alians

What a fun start to a series. There are tricks, hot aliens, a crazy bridezilla, kidnapping and so much more. Standalone with no cliffhangers. It may be quick but so worth it.
