That Alien Feeling by Alessandra Hazard 2.5 Stars
Banished by his parents to the third planet in the Sol system, Prince Harht’ngh’chaali of the Second Grand Clan is completely fascinated by its inhabitants. Assuming the human name “Harry,” he tries to pass for a human to survive, but being human is so much harder than Harry expected. Humans are so confusing.
Adam Crawford isn’t looking for love. Financially secure and good-looking, he’s in a good place in his life. He doesn’t mean to fall in love with the quirky guy working at the coffee shop near his office. Harry is ridiculous—and ridiculously endearing. He wears ugly shirts and flowers in his hair, and he has a kind word for everyone. Adam falls hard and fast.
Little does he know that Harry isn’t what he seems and anything between them is impossible.
Star-crossed love between a human man and an alien prince from a world half a galaxy away.
Hmmm. This is a really strange little book.
It goes from good, to not so good, to what?, to bad.
What carries this book is Harry, the alien, who is enchanting. Period. It is fun to be with Harry. There is some intersting playing with asexuality and demisexuality as a part of the alien culture building.
ThoughI like the other hero, we only know what his job his and who is best friend is. He is very flat. But he loves Harry. Heck, I love Harry but I know he isn’t really.
Then, comes the world building and we don’t get enough of it. And next we get Harry’s alien world and family and politics and they are too lightly drawn to be that engaging. His brother is a jerk and it feels like he will get his own book….and I don’t care.
And then then ends seems to put Harry’s not already satisfing HEA in peril. And I am out. lol
