Awkward teenage girl, Alex Bianchi, finds love when she takes an internship at Circe Operations Center.

(synopsis taken from Goodreads)

In How to Date an Alien we’re introduced to Alex Bianchi and the strange setting she has suddenly found herself in. Agreeing to take an internship at what she thinks is a sort of regular military base called Circe. I have to give it to her, upon her arrival and realizing what it is she’s gotten herself into, I’d be a bit wigged out myself.

Circe is no normal military operations center. Instead, it’s were aliens from all over the universe can be found. Magan Vernon does a spectacular job in making the world of Circe and all the aliens completely believable and totally original. At times I was laughing out loud at some of the descriptions of the different aliens. Alex of course, goes into this situation completely blind and her father fails to inform her of the dangers that come with working with these aliens who have completely different customs.

Once the peace sign is given, all hell breaks loose and How to Date an Alien sets off as our knight in shining armor, or the prince charming (hehe) of the story, Ace enters the scene. Really, I find Ace to be quite dreamy, with his dark hair and eyes and that tight temperature control suit (yea so, some aliens are hot okay?)

All in all I absolutely LOVED this novel by Magan Vernon. It’s light, funny, and desperately cute and romantic. Plus, Vernon answers a very good question: How exactly, do you date an alien? 

“If someone told me at the beginning of that summer that I would come face-to-face with death because of a Romeo and Juliet romance, I would never have believed it. But it wasn't like that summer went at all like I planned in the first place.”

Alex’s interstellar relationship has finally been sealed in the eyes of the human world, so now she can move on to her next step: college.

With Ace by her side and a new piece of jewelry on her finger, she thinks she is ready for anything. Well, almost anything.
Her new roommate holds a dangerous link to her past that Alex isn't sure if she can handle. Then there is the whole alien fiancĂ© thing. Every time she tries to get closer to Ace, he seems to pull further away. Top that off with a full summer class load and a few more alien attacks and it’s just another day for Alex.

Except this time she isn’t sure if marrying an alien will be the happy ending she’s hoping for.

**While the first two alien books were mildly tame, this book is a little different. I'm not saying it's Fifty Shades or anything, but Alex is eighteen, she's going off to college and she's been with her alien boyfriend for a year; there is guranteed to be some heat. I'm recommending this for upper YA/New Adult readers.**

Eep! I love love loved How to Marry an Alien. Finally, Alex has graduated the strange world of high school and is moving up to college. Alex and Ace’s relationship has been sent through the ringer, and they’ve come out on top. Now sporting a massive Calta diamond on her finger, Alex finds herself attempting to navigate the confusing and liberating world of college while at the same time, coming to realize that she indeed has made a massive commitment, one that affects the lives of everyone on Earth.

Alex is just as hilarious and amazing in this book as in all the others. She’s changed a bit, matured and is still maturing in How to Marry an Alien. Her spunk and straight up awesomeness constantly amazed me in this book. Being the future Princess of Calta is no easy feat, even if your Prince is gorgeous. Ace is Ace. And I love him! He’s also changed a lot since the first book, for better and worse. This time though, it’s Ace who’s retreating from Alex when all she wants is to be closer to him. Some of our favorite characters are back, along with new ones that you will love (seriously, Monte is like my alien hero!). A new relationship will spring up that may shock you, but in a good way!

Ace and Alex’s  tumultuous relationship keeps you on the edge of your seat, but it’s really not that hard to see that both characters are desperately inlove with each other. When you have something as big as a life-long commitment hanging over your head and the fact that someone is trying to kill you constantly, I can see where things become a bit stressed.

In the conclusion to this fantastic series Vernon brings us back to the characters we all fell in love with, and at the end it’s like saying good-bye to a truly great friend. Everything about this book was perfect, and I have to give credit to Vernon for her great pull-off of Alex and Ace’s “first time” together. The My Alien Romance series will leave you ready to find your own Circe and Ace!
