13 Reasons I loved Alien Overnight

Alien Overnight By Robin L. RothamCommander Kellen is on Earth recruiting women for his planet's sex-starved males. Not particularly excited by human anatomy, he seeks nothing more for himself than the occasional slaking of his needs with some anonymous female — which shouldn't be a problem, since she'll have to face the other way to accommodate his special anatomical needs.Dr. Monica Teague is thrilled with her ten-year assignment caring for Garathan's sexual recruits. Her quirky looks and childish excuse for a body guarantee she'll never be expected to put out — which is kind of a bummer, now that she's up to her armpits in horny alien beefcake.But, when an overdose of alien pheromones makes Monica drunk off her ass, Kellen quickly claims the odd little doctor before another Garathani realizes what she is. The overdose sparks a violent chain reaction in her, and when Monica finally wakes, she's got the body of a porn star — and two sexy alien mates who are determined to tame her.If only she were as determined not to let them…

I wasnt going to do this again so quickly-but yesterday I had the great privilege of reading Alien Overnight by my friend and fellow diva Robin L. Rotham. WOW. It's out with Ellora's Cave right now and I suggest you get your booty on over there and check this baby out. Here's why:

1. Sexy Aliens. Seriously. These guys are hawt. And funny. And Alpha. Everything an Earth girl could want. And according to all sources-they smell REALLY good {always a plus}

2. Alien sexual spur. Intrigued? You should be.

3. Funky Goth Doctor as a heroine who gets a "special" kind of makeover.

4. Tons of totally awesome alien space gadgets. I want a few of them for my house. Some of them have definite uses ;)

5. The characters. All of them. So rich-so quirky.

6. The storyline. From political undercurrents to painful histories to sexy punishments to explosions to...well there is a lot of stuff going on.

7. Menage-which we all know is near and dear to my heart. But Robin-talented lady that she is-took it to a place that surprised me-in a good way. A way that stayed true to the characters and the storyline. A way that I loved.

8. I finished the novel wanting to see more of that world. Not dissatisfied by any means-just really interested in what was going to happen to all of these characters next. She did kind of leave us with some loose ends {okay I know it was on purpose-now I can't wait for the next one, Alien After All}.

9. And here's the part where we talk about sex. Hot, Kinky, Alien Sex. I'm shocked. Totally shocked. My innocence is ruined forever. I'll never be the same. {I'm planning on reading it again-can you tell?}

10. I loved the secrets the men were hiding about their previous society-very interesting twist! I cant say more-you have to read it.

11. The cover. I know, I know-I waited to mention it but I have serious cover envy. I covet her cover. Sigh.

12. The sex again. I cant get over it. I may need therapy. Or an Alien Invasion of my own. lol

13. From page one until the end-I enjoyed myself thoroughly. Without a hiccup, without question-just a good, sexy, humorous interesting read. Thats the whole point right? Are you clicking the link to buy it yet? You should.

Personally I think any book that has the words "horny alien beefcake" in the blurb deserves AMAZING things!
