Book Review: Alien Tango

The second volume in the super-sexy alien fantasy series follows the style of the first, so if you liked it, you’ll like this one too. If you didn’t like it, you won’t like this one. If you’re like me and are not sure why you’re reading, you’ll still wonder, but you’ll probably keep reading. 🙂

Kitty Kat isn’t a great character. She’s essentially a comic book geek whose superhero fantasies are coming true. And hey, I kind of get that. I’m no comic book geek, but I had the normal amount of superhero fantasies. The thing is that as a reader, I like my characters to make a certain degree of sense, even when they are playing a wish fulfillment role. Kitty doesn’t make sense. She was in marketing, and now she’s morphed into a heroine archetype — tough, witty, thinks on her feet. Yet months have passed since she learned about aliens and started dating one, but she still hasn’t learned much of anything about them. She has materials she could be reading, but apparently she’s to cool for that sort of thing. Um…but how do you make lightening-quick decisions and put together pieces of a complex puzzle involving alien conspiracies when you don’t really understand the context?

But the book remains kind of fun. So turn off your brain and enjoy the ride!
