I've long been a fan of MA Church's work and this story has all her trademark elements of vivid characters, humorous banter and hot male/male sex. As a child, Shawn wished upon a star, not knowing he was wishing on a UFO... or that the creature inside the UFO was watching him and would come back again and again, drawn by the attractive young human. Shawn is an adult when the UFO crashes and he finally meets his alien, Ziang. Ziang's insights are fun; his people have a history with humans. I enjoyed the interaction between the two main characters, because Shawn is understandably freaked out at first, especially when Ziang proclaims Shawn is his mate. Their relationship starts out a little rocky, but before long they're exploring some pretty fine tentacle sex. Naturally, the course of love doesn't run smoothly and there's more to the story in the form of government agents, alien-phobic locals, and Shawn's best friend who works in law enforcement. Anyone who likes sci-fi romance with a dose of spicy space opera will find this story well worth their time!
