I was hoping for more originality because of the first chapter but was disappointed. The main character was predictable, the woman weak and broken, the outcome the same as other alien romances. No originality.
When you wish upon a falling star, er, UFO…
Young widow Kevanne Girardi catches sight of a meteorite streaking across the sky and wishes for a good handyman to help make her rundown lavender farm a big success. Instead, she gets a shapeshifting alien who apparently has never seen a leaky faucet before. But his loving and noble spirit make him just the man to fix her wounded heart. He hasn’t promised her forever, but a girl can hope, can’t she? Maybe she’ll make another wish…
When his ship tumbles out of the sky and lands on Earth, Chameleon never expects to fall for a human woman. Unfortunately, he can’t stay. He made a mistake that led to the devastation of an entire planet, and now the survivors are depending on him to get them to safety. He must repair his ship and leave before the Xeno Consortium finds him and Earth becomes endangered, too. But oh, he wishes he could stay with Kevanne forever…
Can a twist of fate make their wishes come true?
Well rounded characters, believable storyline for aliens meeting a human.
Lot of background information is shared, making the characters "people" that become more than words.
Brand new life as a lavender farmer, in need of a "handyman". Alien ship crashed on Earth, can they find away to repair the ship, after being blasted in space by hostile aliens.
Nope it is not one of those aliens hiding from the government books. It is a love story full of healing and hope.
This is a great start to this series. The romance between Chameleon and Kevanne built quickly but with some funny situations while working through their relationship. Kevanne didn't trust easily due to the abuse of her deceased husband while Chameleon had to be careful about giving too much information since he was an alien. Fortunately, love between the human and alien blossoms like Kevanne's lavender fields.
Though it was fun to imagine aliens coping in the foreign environment of Earth, I'd have liked more imagination in names, both for characters and worlds. It also strains credulity to have these aliens meet their genmates in the first human women they meet. The story was decent but didn't keep me as interested as Bristol's cyborg romances.
This is going to be another series read for me !!! Once again, these characters snatch and grab you and I get INVOLVED !!
Cam, is with a few of refugees from the planet Topia , which has been utterly destroyed. A desperate act on the spacecraft lands the travelers on Earth. With no way to repair their ship.....
Kevanne, is a widow who had chosen this tiny town to start fresh.
Needing a " handy man " , to help her get her business off the ground, she never bargains for an alien hottie who can't fix anything !!!
This story was very interesting and lovely , with a few surprises along the way !!!
Looking forward to the next book !!
Alien ship force-lands on earth and the six unique aliens of different races on board, take jobs to survive, adapt and acclimate to primitive human life. CB gives us a creative look at how these aliens survive while struggling to repair their ship. The story had a lot of promise. I won’t rehash the synopsis, but I liked the premise and the characters were likable enough and they certainly had chemistry. Unfortunately I didn’t connect with them, therefore I couldn’t drum up any empathy for them. I didn’t care what happened to them. The story is predictable and dialogue is sometimes cheesy and juvenile. But overall it was an okay read.
Nice story but not great. The ending was contrived and a bit too convenient. The techie guy that helps the aliens..... Well you can figure out who he represents.
I really, really wanted to like the story. Instead I found most of the characters interesting, except the main two Cam Leon and Kevanne. No world building, really. The relationship was believable. Kevanne’s past bored me after while. The story wrapped up pretty neatly in the end. Too neatly. Although I find Cam’s shipmates interesting, I'm not sure it’s enough to continue with the series.
Oh, trigger. Kevanne’s ex was mentally and physically abusive. Described in detail.
