Book Review: Eros by K. Cantrell


Book Description

Looking for Love on all the Wrong Planets Penelope Boswell needs a fake boyfriend to save her from her meddling family. But when the Intergalactic Dating Agency matches her with a sexy alien willing to play pretend in exchange for her help assimilating to Earth culture, she gets way more than she bargained for: Eros is seductive, pushy and has no intention of faking anything, least of all their relationship…

My Review

Penelope meets a matchmaker but doesn't realize until she decides to use her services to get her family off her back, that the matchmaker is making matches with aliens from other planets that need green cards. In order for Penelope to make this match work she will have to marry the alien she's been matched with so he can get a green card and she can help him blend in as a human until he learns better English and our customs. 

But right from the start Eros (John Smith) just wants to make out and have sex which got on my nerves. I think he thought that Penelope would fall in love with him if they were intimate. But because he doesn't understand our culture, our language or how things really work here, he's like a child...who wants to have sexy times with Penelope. 

It's hard to get to know a character when he can't communicate or understand well. I thought the premise was great but Eros was very one dimensional for most of the book which made it hard to really like him because I couldn't get to know him. 

I give this book 3 out of 5 stars.
