Review: Alien Overnight by Robin L. Rotham

Alien Overnight (Overnight #1) by Robin L. Rotham
Synopsis (Goodreads):
Commander Kellen is on Earth recruiting women for his planet's sex-starved males. Not particularly excited by human anatomy, he seeks nothing more for himself than the occasional slaking of his needs with some anonymous female - which shouldn't be a problem, since she'll have to face the other way to accommodate his special anatomical needs.

Dr. Monica Teague is thrilled with her ten-year assignment caring for Garathan's sexual recruits. Her quirky looks and childish excuse for a body guarantee she'll never be expected to put out - which is kind of a bummer, now that she's up to her armpits in horny alien beefcake.

But, when an overdose of alien pheromones makes Monica drunk off her ass, Kellen quickly claims the odd little doctor before another Garathani realizes what she is. The overdose sparks a violent chain reaction in her, and when Monica finally wakes, she's got the body of a porn star - and two sexy alien mates who are determined to tame her.

If only she were as determined not to let them.

Reader Advisory: Contains menage a trois sexual scenes.
My Thoughts: I'm not going to lie here, the urge to find out about Kellen's "special anatomical needs" was the driving force behind me reading this. Well, that and I love sexy sci-fi. The fact that this book contained both special anatomical needs and aliens is like THE BEST THING EVER!

What are these special anatomical needs? you ask. Oh, I'd be thrilled to tell you. You see, a male Garathani cannot achieve release unless his breeding spur is also stimulated. The breeding spur is a protuberance along the top of his boy bits that extends when the male is aroused. So, basically, he can give his lady a little double penetration action ALL BY HIMSELF! Hee! So this book was pretty much one of those books that totally hit the spot (heh) when I picked it up. It has the nicely naughty parts AND a storyline. And a breeding spur. SCORE!

Although there was a thing or two that made me all wide eyed and squirrely (Kellen ordering his second to rape a woman to extract vital information - even though he was only using it as a threat because he knew that his second wouldn't go through with it), overall the book was excellent. Monica's physical and sexual developmental delays had made her feel like an outcast her entire life - and for once I didn't cringe at the virginal heroine since she had a valid medical reason for being that way. Kellen's reactions to Monica and the way he treated her held true with the way he'd been treated in the past and I like that he made mistakes with her. Since kissing was not something his planet engaged in for the most part, he didn't realize that he was hurting her by not kissing her. It was nice to see a hero who didn't know everything and yet managed to woo his lady despite this.

Special anatomical needs aside, this was a very fun book with a well built world and engaging characters. I'm glad Shauss has a chance to find a happy ever after in the next book (although I predict it will be a wonderfully bumpy ride) because he deserves a HEA if any double-penetrating alien does. Although, that will throw this book's menage into the wringer. HOW WILL THINGS WORK OUT IN THE END??? I just don't know!

  1. Oh. This is the special anatomical needs book! And! The next book is the one I promised to buy you if you finished all your AS,AS books.

    1. Knowing that I could have book 2 at the end of AS, AS has *really* helped keep me motivated! SERIOUSLY! Special anatomical needs, FTW!

    2. Anything to keep you motivated, Kelly. ANYTHING.

    3. ANYTHING?!?!?!?!?! I'd like Rehvenge, please. We're going to hang out and bake cookies. Maybe watch a movie. It'll be awesome. I'm not saying this is going to happen but if I accidentally inappropriately grope him... well, what can you do?

      *goes to read ALL THE BOOKS*

    4. Anything WITHIN MY POWERS. You know Rehvenge is not within my powers.

    5. Ahh. True. He's totally ensnared by me, isn't he? Very well. I will accept book 2 of this series in lieu of Rehvenge.

  2. OH this was that one! I remember his special needs---but why does it have to be menage? Seriously I need a sharing gene inserted into me so I can read menage without going "now who wants to share a hot thing" :) :) :)

    (yes I actually have those thoughts while reading *sigh*)

    1. Due to their special anatomical needs, they never actually share in the sense of bonking her at the same time. I think there would be waaaaay to many parts down there if they tried to do that!

  3. This one caught my eye a while back, I HAVE to get it soon! Great review.
