Publisher's Summary

A grumpy alien. A chatty, sunny human. For some insane reason, he wants her to look at him and see her mate.

Bash

I dislike people. I despise humans. A cruel mandate from one of my region's rulers has saddled me with a slew of little alien humans: I'm to put them to work.

One problem? I run a rock quarry, where humans’ thin skin is a detriment to productivity. Overseeing these humans is like trying to herd yanaks. If I don't burn, beat, or strangle them to death by the day's end, it will be a miracle.

Isla

I can tell the boss likes me, because I'm not dead. Bash is abrasive and acerbic, like some sort of alien love child between Michael Caine and Miss Hannigan. And maybe Ebenezer Scrooge. Bash is a little…anti-human race. But he’s not all bad. Sure, he's a little growly and he sets things on fire when he gets mad, but even villains need friends. And here? Bash is everybody's villain. Everybody’s but mine.

Loved

Amanda Milo has a strange and scary mind! Her stories have such humor in them. Oh there’s dark themes at times don’t get me wrong , but they are so good. She was able to get Nick Cracknell to read this awesome story. Love his narrations! Here’s hoping that these two can work together in the future.

Even better as an audio

I love Cracknell's voice. He did a fabulous job with this story. I also think this book is even better as an audio, and that is saying something!

This book is so wonderful!!!!

If you like the romantic trope of the guy hates everyone but you. You have found your book!!!!! These two are the cutest couple and it has heavy content, ( which is a little hard to find in alien books some times). I promise you will love this book.

A MUST LISTEN

I bought this book when it first came out, then I saw it was available to listen to on Audible and immediately pre ordered it. I was giddy! This book is so much fun to read and now listen too. The narrator was fantastic the characters are great I want a friend like Isla snarky, says what she thinks and maybe a little crazy (in a good way, come on aren't we all) I laughed all throughout the listen, I didn't want it to end. I love the writing of Amanda Milo. Now if I can get Contagion on Audio my life would be complete. Just sit down and enjoy this fantastic journey.

Loved it!

I love the print version and love the audio just as much. Nick Cracknell did a great job and provided the same voices for Gracie, Dohrein and other characters from the Stolen by an Alien series. Five stars for this performance of my favorite sci-fi grumpy boss/slow-burn/rom-com!

A little slow going and the way the girl talks…ugh

So it starts off slow but then gets interesting. My only real problem is the way the female protagonist talks… she uses way too many idioms, even when he begs here to speak plainly. It seems that she could have spoken clearer. I thought she would but it got worse. It didn’t hurt the story too much but I am very forgiving if the storyline is good

Good narration. Too Long of Unnecessary Character (side ones) intros

Good narration and story plot, but all of the women (whether part of of the same universe or story plot or not) are annoying. Don’t mind the description, but it’s overdone with Gracie and not enough intro for the MAIN female lead. Isla. Don’t care for Beth as both of them are just weenies pretending to be tough. Keep it to 1-2 female leads or things kinda clash. Other than that, awesome story. Was just hard to tread into.

Holy hotness

This series by this author is better than tacos. I also adore this narrator’s voice. He’s very skilled with his voice for all the different characters. Anything narrated by him and anything written by her…instabuy every time.

More by Amanda Milo please

A light hearted lusty alien romance with a couple of laugh out loud moments is a must.
As title of review says I want more from this author please.
