Two years ago, the aliens made contact. Now Cara Sweeney is going to be sharing a bathroom with one of them.

Handpicked to host the first-ever L’eihr exchange student, Cara thinks her future is set. Not only does she get a free ride to her dream college, she’ll have inside information about the mysterious L’eihrs that every journalist would kill for. Cara’s blog following is about to skyrocket.

Still, Cara isn’t sure what to think when she meets Aelyx. Humans and L’eihrs have nearly identical DNA, but cold, infuriatingly brilliant Aelyx couldn’t seem more alien. She’s certain about one thing, though: no human boy is this good-looking.

But when Cara’s classmates get swept up by anti-L’eihr paranoia, Midtown High School suddenly isn’t safe anymore. Threatening notes appear in Cara’s locker, and a police officer has to escort her and Aelyx to class.

Cara finds support in the last person she expected. She realizes that Aelyx isn’t just her only friend; she’s fallen hard for him. But Aelyx has been hiding the truth about the purpose of his exchange, and its potentially deadly consequences. Soon Cara will be in for the fight of her life—not just for herself and the boy she loves, but for the future of her planet.
I finished this book a few days ago and wow was it amazing. I loved it from “cover to cover” (I put it in quotes because I read it as an ebook so I didn’t really have covers) but anyways the point is I loved it. I loved the writing style,I loved the characters, I loved the world, it was great. I recommend this to everyone. If you like sci-fi and contemporary, then this is the perfect mix. Trust me, it’s amazing. ♡

Spoilers Ahead

Again I will be looking over the notes I took and whatever I had highlighted to discuss here (:

Then I don’t see the problem,” he told Eric. “The fact that you purchased an inferior gift hardly seems like any failing on my part. It’s common knowledge that shiny rocks are preferred among human females.”

I loved Aelyx from the start but from this part I really knew that I loved him; work that sass 🙂
I also found it really cool how he paid with credits; kind of like in a movie or show I once saw, but I still found it pretty cool.

Aelyx shrugged. “To be honest, I don’t know what qualities you ever saw in him. I can tell why he chose you, but—”
“Oh, yeah?” Cara’s spirits lifted as she sensed a compliment coming on. “Why do you think he chose me?”
“It’s obvious.” He swept a hand to indicate her loose curls. “Your long, shiny hair, healthy skin, and bright eyes show that you’re well-nourished.”

That was very funny (:

Let’s not talk about me anymore,” she said, resolving to lay off the carbs, starting tomorrow. Wait, tomorrow was pasta night. She’d lay off the carbs Wednesday.
To hell with cutting carbs. Life was too short for that nonsense.

Amen Girl! Amen! Lol 👏

@Humanist: Post that under your real name, coño. So I can come put my foot up your ass.

Tori Okay I was really pissed at her at first; like how could you do that to her? All that time you’ve hated Eric wtf that’s messed up. But I forgave her at the end.

Okay the whole Aelyx learning English in one week that was a total hyperbole lol I mean I learned English pretty fast too but not in one week! But he’s awesome.
When Cara kept trying to cook for him so that the food would taste like the food he’s used to from L’heir! That was the cutesse thing 💝

So…. Brandi, I really thought she was writing a love letter to Aelyx; I didn’t suspect her to be writing the threats after the whole debacle in the hallway with Cara. That was nice from Melissa.

Then we have the whole scene were they show each other how they each show intimacy to decide which was best; and I gotta say even though the L’heir way is pretty cool and sweet , the human way is much better lol; and I think Aelyx can agree💝
I really like her brother Troy too (:
Going into this I thought the whole Alien -Human relationship thingy was going to be a bigger issue; he’s planning on making her his l’ihan or something like that; whatever it’s called I don’t remember, but that’s basically equivalent to making her his wife in human terms. That whole thing was cute. Im so excited for Invaded .which comes out next year (:.I want to know how Aelyx fixes the issues on Earth and how Cara’s life is going on L’heir and what new issues have come about. The book was just so good!
I rate it a: 5/5 🌟 👍
~~From one book lover to Another~~
💡 Happy Reading! Xx 💡
