Reef was the best assassin the Coalition Government had ever produced, being half computer helps make him perfect and having an excellent success rate proved that.  After a lifetime of being trained to be the consummate hitman, his body is hard and toned to perfection and the secrets in his eyes chill people to the bone.  Now Reef has to deal with failure and finding himself without his powers.  His bosses want him dead, and the lowly humans just keep helping him.  Don’t they know they should fear him? Don’t they realize he doesn’t belong in ‘suburbia’?

Every day, Evie Jasper Holloway puts everyone else before herself, and she needs to learn to set limits.  Becoming a chocolate entrepreneur should make her fantasy of no longer being the ‘black sheep’ of the successful Jasper family, a reality.  Now she just needs to deal with the mob, her interfering ex-husband and the alien assassin her sister dropped on her plate, for the next 10 days,  What’s a soccer Mom to do?

How to Lose an Extraterrestrial in 10 days is a cute, sexy, well-written romance. Susan Grant weaves a tale with a superb mix of background characters and descriptions that is a joy to read.  Evie’s personal growth is very appealing to watch develop. Her passionate outrage and attempts to bring attention and help to slavery (most especially children’s slavery) from across the world is wonderful to read. Reef’s acceptance of his own actions and his dealing with the consequences of those actions improves him as a person and a hero. Both Evie’s and Reef’s character development helps the reader find themselves rooting for Evie and Reef’s relationship to develop.  I found myself believing in love at first sight when reading How to Lose an Extraterrestrial in 10 days, and I Joyfully Recommend this book for any time a person wants to sit back and relax with an excellent book.
