Relocating to Arctic Norway would put a freeze on anyone’s social life. For Leda Lindgren, with her crutches and a chip on her shoulder the size of her former Manhattan home, the frozen tundra is just as boring as it sounds. Until she meets her uncle’s gorgeous employee.
Unfortunately, no matter how smoking hot the guy is, Roar comes with secrets as unnerving as his moving tattoos. And Leda doesn’t trust him.
Roar shouldn’t be drawn to the moody human girl with eyes that leave him weak in the knees. But when Leda gets shot by one of his enemies and survives, Roar finally understands why he’s drawn to her: Leda is exactly what he was sent to Earth to find. A weapon of immense power capable of saving his planet.
She just doesn’t know it yet.
This book was not terrible with an interesting plot that had the normal themes of romance, adventure and action but with aliens. Some of the writing seemed jagged as if the author started to go one way then got lost in thought, forgot where she was going and decided to just try to keep going. Sometimes I had to reread sections to understand what she was trying to convey.
It actually reminded me a bit of Men In Black 2 with the idea of a long lost girl who didn’t know she was an ‘alien’ as she was sent to live among humans for her own safety. The ending I kind of saw coming because the storyline was a bit on the predictable side and this kind of plot has been done before but it was still written in a logical manner so everything made sense.
Even with some bumps here and there I still came away feeling like it was a good use of my time because the plot was interesting, besides I loved the MIB franchise and this just kept reminding me of those movies thanks to some great action scenes.
Thank you to Netgalley and Entangled Publishing for allowing me to review this book.
