Rating: 4 stars out of 5
Banished by his parents to the third planet in the Sol system, Prince Harht’ngh’chaali of the Second Grand Clan is completely fascinated by its inhabitants. Assuming the human name “Harry,” he tries to pass for a human to survive, but being human is so much harder than Harry expected. Humans are so confusing.
Adam Crawford isn’t looking for love. Financially secure and good-looking, he’s in a good place in his life. He doesn’t mean to fall in love with the quirky guy working at the coffee shop near his office. Harry is ridiculous—and ridiculously endearing. He wears ugly shirts and flowers in his hair, and he has a kind word for everyone. Adam falls hard and fast.
Little does he know that Harry isn’t what he seems and anything between them is impossible.
Star-crossed love between a human man and an alien prince from a world half a galaxy away.
I really enjoyed this book. However I was a little ticked when I first started reading about Harry having a fiancé back on his planet. Thankfully this all worked out and there isn’t any actual cheating but when I first started reading I was a little dismayed by this.
Harry is really innocent both on his home planet and on earth, adorably so. He feels drawn to Adam from their first meeting and as their friendship grows so do his feelings. Adam can’t help but be charmed by Harry and his quirks. Their lives quickly intertwine even as Harry has to keep his life a secret.
This story is told from both of the characters’ points of view which allowed me to see both of their feelings and what they had to deal with when apart. Harry can’t tell Adam the complete truth and it truly hurts him especially when he is taken away. Adam is destroyed when Harry disappears not once but twice and isn’t quite so willing to allow Harry back right away. There was a lot to overcome in this book to allow these two to really be together, but unfortunately it is done when they apart from each other so they aren’t really given much opportunity to work together on this. I can’t wait to read about Ksar and Syen in the next book.
Cover art as adorable as Harry is in the story and I think it’s perfect.
