OMG. Aliens are the new trend now! I used to hate Aliens, the usually green little man who didn't even spoke, but these ones are smoking hot and very frustrating. Which means i absolutely loved to read about Daemon, Dee and Katy or Kitten...

Katy just moved into a new home in the middle of nowhere and her mother seems to be making a lot of pressure for her to make friends with her next door neighbors. The thing is, the girl is beautifully and really friendly and Katy likes her right of the bat  even though people give Dee really strange glares. Then there is her brother. Overprotective much? Oh yeah. A jerk? Definitely. Hot? Doesn't he own a shirt?

I really enjoyed reading about the geeky character Katy is, she's managed to be done with being a bystander and now attempts to upstage her life and doing more thrilling things.
Her back and forth with Daemon had me laughing trough the whole book and create an empathy with them. They manage to go to the last page without admitting they have feelings for one another. And sometimes the bickering they have over the attraction over each other is annoying and you just want them to go at it, but still with all the sarcasm and idle threats i didn't mind nearly as much as i would in any other book. The tension between them is palpable and oh so very smoking hot. And the flipping each other off? Awesome and very constant.
Okay. That was it. “You know, you’re right. How wrong of me to call you a douchebag. Because a douchebag is too nice of a word for you,” I said, smiling sweetly. “You’re a dickhead.”
“A dickhead?” he repeated. “How charming.”
 I flipped him off.
Dee is and amazing girl who i loved to get to know and the duet she forms with Katy was just awesome. One a geek and the other almost a princess. It's great to see the duet in action and their evolution trough the book when they started sort of reluctant toward each other and ended the best friend with no secrets between them.

The Aliens were amazingly created. Their world wonderfully described and the bad guys were fantastic. I tough it was the best book that portrayed Aliens made them loving and very interesting.  And they have a metabolism everyone would kill for. They eat and eat and they are always hungry...
"As you can see, I don’t look like a giant insect. Or…sparkle. Even in my head I could hear the disgust on that last one."
Overall this book is definitely on my March favorites... And it was great. 5 STARS....
