BOOK REVIEW: Eye on Orion by Laura D Bastian
"Holly Adams never imagined she'd find herself trying to prevent the overthrow of an alien government. When Jai and his sister Amira move into the house down the street, Holly is immediately drawn to them. Jai acts suspicious of her from the start, making Holly more curious about their oddities. When Holly learns they are from another planet, she does what she can to help protect Amira from Shander, a man who wants to marry her by force in order to take over the kingdom her father rules.
"Mistaken identity, blotched kidnapping, and a first kiss that bonds Holly and Jai for life are hard enough, but when Shander believes Holly to be the princess, things get even more dangerous." (from back cover)
I was hooked from the start. The girl in me that loves a good love story with a twist of mystery clung to this book until the happy ever after. A 232 pages that will make you smile, shift anxiously in your seat, and wish you had your own Jai living down the street. In ways it reminded me of the Twilight books: intense attraction from a formal and sexy god-like male. Yep. Loooooved it! Rated PG for mature feelings (really no biggie, super clean) and 4.5 stars. Way to go, Laura Bastian!
