Alien hunting can get a girl killed. It can also get her a date.
High school senior Camille Robins and her best friend are determined to snag the attention of their crushes before graduation next month. Armed with red-hot outfits and killer hair, they sneak into the hottest nightclub in town -- which caters to the rich and famous, both human and alien. They end up following Erik (who is human) and Silver (who isn't) through a guarded door and are soon separated and under attack...and not the good kind. Bad boy Erik spares Camille's life, but the two are soon being chased by gun-toting Alien Investigation and Removal agents. Camille's more confused than ever because Erik's finally showing real interest in her, but the agents are accusing him of dealing Onadyn -- a drug that ruins human lives. Suddenly, with the heat of his kiss lingering on her lips, Camille has to decide whose side she's on...and whether she's willing to put her life on the line to save Erik's.
Another great Gena Showalter book! Loved these characters, loved the romance, loved the conflict, loved how AIR was the bad guy, in this one, and showed a different side of them, because it's always been from their perspective, or those close to them.
We got to see Mia, Phoenix, as others see them, and yeah, in this book, they didn't have their nicest faces on, which just added conflict, and made for a wonderful story, so of course I loved that, and just it was different, and interesting, and captivating!
Camille isn't like other heroines in this series, they had strength, and they knew about it. She didn't know about the strength that she had, and yeah, it did grow in this book, but she did have a good deal of it right from the get go!
Ryan and Camille had an awesome chemistry, because he's older, and has been keepings secrets-is trained to keep secrets, and then she's brought into his world, and does well, I might well say thrive, and comes up with a way to make things better-telling the truth, simple as that is, hard in execution! (The truth of why he's a drug dealer, and who the drug is going to-the aliens who actually need it!)
Yeah, such a great book, loved it so much, can't wait to read more of the adult series now!!
