Daisy Kirkwood has only just escaped her small-town life and run away to New York City, the land of last-minute secret gigs at famous musical venues, when she's kidnapped by aliens. Unfortunately, no one ever writes about how to handle alien abduction in those fancy NYC guidebooks.

Griffin and Dev are supermassively sexy aliens from a politically and environmentally troubled planet who arrive on Earth with very little knowledge about human ways other than what they learned from a wayward "E! News" signal. Their mission is to pretend to be the most influential people on the planet English pop stars, of course! and gain the help of a powerful secret society. Upon arriving, they abduct Daisy Kirkwood, a nerdy young woman who loves music but could seriously use a bit of help in the love-life department. Though Griffin and Daisy initially squabble, neither can deny the intergalactic sparks whenever they're too close to each other. Together, they must face murderous aliens, cultural misunderstandings, bad backup musicians, and the dark side of fame and the media, all set against a tight deadline

Part "High Fidelity," part "Bridget Jones' Diary," part "Doctor Who," "Dating an Alien Pop Star" is a sexy romantic comedy."

My Thoughts

Dating an Alien Pop Star is such a funny and enjoyable romance! There were plenty of laugh out loud moments and hot aliens.

Dating an Alien Pop Star features Daisy Kirkwood, an almost 30 year-old jaded New Yorker who loves music, and Griffin Valentino, an alien who wants to be a pop star. Daisy in the beginning is kidnapped by Griffin and his best friend, Dev. These two guys act like arrogant brats, but thanks to Daisy’s help they start to pursue their dream and a romance starts.

Daisy and Griffin are a great couple. Daisy pursues what she wants: music. I like how she uses her talents to help Griffin. And, her patience for Griffin is so adorable. Griffin is such a cute alien. He is pathetically a failure at acting arrogant. This guy bleeds sweetness and awkwardness that you can’t help but fall for him. I really like Griffins antics and referring to humans. His sense of superiority was extremely funny. Plus as he gets acclimatized to earth, there are tons of laugh out loud moments.

The romance between Griffin and Daisy is really sweet. I love that it is clean and that there is passion. It is a slow-burn that only starts to build up in the last half of the book.

The side characters add so much fun to the book. Kammie, Daisy’s best friend, is a nice side character. Her fascination with aliens is hilarious. And, Dev, Griffin’s best friend, is a nice addition. He is so funny.

Overall, this book is an amazing rom-com. It does feature aliens, but is mostly light on the science-fiction. I highly recommend this book for people looking for a light-read. I can’t wait to start Engaged to an Alien Pop Star, the sequel.
