Review: Alien Tango - Gini Koch

Series: Katherine "Kitty" Katt 2
Genre: Oh man, sci-fi romance perhaps
Pages: 428
Published: 2010

It's been five months since marketing manager Katherine "Kitty" Katt started working with the aliens from Alpha Centauri, and she and Jeff Martini are getting closer. But when an experimental spacecraft is mysteriously returned to the Kennedy Space Center, Kitty and the rest of her team are called in to investigate. Now the team must survive murderous attacks, remove a space entity from a group of astronauts, and avoid an unhinged woman with a serious crush on Kitty's high school boyfriend. And that's all before evil masterminds decide Kitty's extermination is vital.

My thoughts:
This series continues to be utterly amusing. There is lots of stuff happening and there is lots of humour promised.

How to write a review of this strange book, that is the question. First let me start that Kitty is an amazing heroine, she can kick ass, she is funny and when it comes to men she can be somewhat clueless. It is also impossible not to like her. She is now the commander of the Airborne and fights uglies together with her man Jeff. Aww Jeff, he is devoted to her, totally crazy about her and knew he wanted her from day one. I do like when he becomes all jealous too. He is my kind of alien. Together this couple is great.

The rest of the crew, nothing bad to say about them. I love how she banters with them, I like Christopher's glares and they are just one fun bunch.

Action, yes all the time. There is a conspiracy, and evil people want to take down the aliens. Not to mention that she gets a crazy stalker after her. What can I say a lot of crazy in this book and it made me like it even more. Hot sizzling romance too. I did not forget about that.

Why is it funny? Well there is always humour even in the darkest of times. Just look at the cover and you get the feel of the book. Cos yes there will be alligators and space shuttles in it.

Conclusion:
I read the book really fast and still it took me longer than normal. It is a mystery. But anyway the book is just that  good. I kept on reading, I smiled and went woot woot. This is a fun series that I would recommend to PNR, UF and sci-fi lovers. I sure enjoyed it and will read more.

Rating:
Hard to put down

I've been wondering what to choose as a palate cleanser after Stieg Larsson. It might be a great suggestion. Lovely and absolutely persuading review - thanks! Aligators? I can't wait!

How did I miss this review? ;) I'm glad you are enjoying this series. Martini is one of my favorite all time guys. I named my kindle after him. :) Before this book, I didn't think I'd like a Sci Fi romance. I'm so glad I was proven wrong.

Blodeuedd said...

@VFG
I do hope you try her funny books :)

@Bucky
I would not have thought I would like sci fi romance either but I sure do :D Especially when it's like this.
