Series: Alienn, Arkansas #1.5; Nocturne Falls Universe
Read: February 11, 2021
When a spaceship crashes in the Georgia woods, a retrieval team is sent to rescue the occupants and prevent any humans from finding out aliens exist. What Elise Midori doesn’t expect is for one of the aliens to be the man she has had a crush on for a year, and left her home world to avoid.
This was another fun Nocturne Falls Universe story. Elise and Riker both are surprised to find each other in Nocturne Falls but they have to rely on each other to avoid a crazy druid cult. Along the way they open up to each other and admit that they both have had feelings for the other since they met years ago. Like most of the stories in the NFU, this one is an instant love relationship. They fall for each other the instant they meet but family, society, and an arranged marriage prevents them from pursuing it.
I liked both Elise and Riker. Elise was a strong and protective woman who knows what she wants to do with her life. I appreciated that about her. The only issue I had was with one decision at the end of the book because I felt it went against everything she had previously stood for (if you are curious about what that is check my Goodreads review for the spoiler).
Riker is a protective alpha male who needs a strong woman like Elise to make him happy. I liked his protectiveness and determination to help his family. Overall, this was a fun and quick romance. Having the aliens of Alienn mix with the paranormals of Nocturne Falls is always interesting. I especially love the cameos by previous couples in the Nocturne Falls universe.
