~Review:How to Date an Alien:Awkward teenage girl, Alex Bianchi, finds love when she takes an internship at Circe Operations Center.
How to Break Up With an Alien:
Face it, long distance relationships in high school are hard, especially when the other one in the relationship is an alien. Alex Bianchi may have survived an intergalactic battle, but that still doesn’t excuse her from her senior year of high school, or qualify her for any sort of scholarship. To make up for college tuition costs, she takes a job at a local coffee shop. If only coffee could solve all of her problems.As Alex’s senior year progresses, everything changes and she can’t figure out if it is interstellar or if it is just time to break up with an alien.
How to Marry an Alien:
Alex’s interstellar relationship has finally been sealed in the eyes of the human world, so now she can move on to her next step: college.With Ace by her side and a new piece of jewelry on her finger, she thinks she is ready for anything. Well, almost anything. Her new roommate holds a dangerous link to her past that Alex isn't sure if she can handle. Then there is the whole alien fiancé thing. Every time she tries to get closer to Ace, he seems to pull further away. Top that off with a full summer class load and a few more alien attacks and it’s just another day for Alex.Except this time she isn’t sure if marrying an alien will be the happy ending she’s hoping for.**While the first two alien books were mildly tame, this book is a little different. I'm not saying it's Fifty Shades or anything, but Alex is eighteen, she's going off to college and she's been with her alien boyfriend for a year; there is guranteed to be some heat. I'm recommending this for upper YA/New Adult readers.**
So to be brutally honest...I had no clue what I was doing when I entered this tour. I figured sure why not? I can always use a filler tour right? Bad news...I forgot how much I didn't really like alien books. I don't know why but they have just never interested me. I haven't even felt the urge to read The Host by Stephanie Myer!! I haven't even read Bethany Revis' books cus they had alien like covers...and they aren't even alien themed right? Ya, I'm weird. ;P I no longer wanted to start on the books when it cam around to starting them for this review! So....this is bad news right? No interest in alien books= a big no no....wrong!!!! This book. *Uhem* These book(S) really surprised me!
I quickly fell in love with an alien. Oh gosh..Ace...this dude/alien is freaking amazing! Again, I love him! Then there is Alex is actually really cool. She is different and always has been since she moved into a little town where there wasn't an Italian girl in sight automatically giving her the title as the weird outcast...the different one. What she doesn't know is that she isn't the one who should really feel out of place...especially as she takes on an internship...at a local alien base! She is tough, strong, strong-willed and stubborn as hell. I loved her! Now, put Alex and Ace together...adorable!
I loved their relationship and seeing it bloom throughout the three books. I like how their relationship wasn't the sunshine-and-rainbow romance. They went through some pretty thick obstacles and over came each one...still ending up loving each other. Their relationship was as real as any relationship...minus the alien part of course. Mrs. Vernon's writing was fun to read along with. Alex was a cool character to read from. I loved Jen and I loved her roomate in book three. I loved Malcom and I loved Jared (I believe that was his name). I loved the story and the different situations. I surprisingly loved this series.
Now, I'm not gonna claim its a favorite of mine but it I definitely enjoyed it. It had humor and it had pain. It had love and it had hatred. The ending to the series was great. It had a clean cut off. Kinda sad in a little way but their love still goes on despite the small fright that turned into a detail. If you are a fan of alien books I recommend it. Heck, I don't care for alien books and I liked this one..(s)! Try it! I'm sure you will like it. Now, you don't have to be a fan of aliens to read it cus like I just said...I wasn't and I liked it! Fun and sweet. Intense at parts and never really boring. At times cliche but it didn't ruin the story in the least.
