Review- Touched by an Alien by Gini Koch

Synopsis: (taken from Amazon)

 

 Marketing manager Katherine "Kitty" Katt steps into the middle of what appears to be a domestic dispute turned ugly. And it only gets uglier when the man turns into a winged monster, straight out of a grade-Z horror movie, and goes on a killing spree. Though Kitty should probably run away, she springs into action to take the monster down.

 

In the middle of the chaos a handsome hunk named Jeff Martini appears, sent by the "agency" to perform crowd control. He's Kitty's kind of guy, no matter what planet he's from. And from now on, for Kitty, things are going to be sexy, dangerous, wild, and out of this world.

 

 

This was a fun read, I will give it that.  It is definitely the kind of book to go for when you don't want to think about anything and just go along for a ride.  Aliens, action, romance... all great things, but the drawback for me is the ridiculously Mary Sue protagonist, "Kitty" Katt.  She isn't alone in her Mary Sue-ness either- she is a chip off the old block from her parents, and there is the wonderful empath alien (her love interest), Jeff Martini. 

 

This isn't for the more serious-minded SF folks, but I will admit the sequels in this alien series already have a place on my TBR list- to be read when I want a vacation from it all, including great fiction.  Mediocre at best, but entertaining... tv reading for the reader.
