Aimee was alone. Bored with her life, and with co-workers she had no incentive to befriend, her only real joy came from snuggling up at the end of the day with a good alien romance. But it appears there was more to these books than fiction. When she finds herself abducted and confronting the life she has only read about, her first instinct is to challenge her kidnappers for proof. Little did she know the cost of her actions. Coming face to face with the intoxicating Qay started a chain of events that not only endangered his future but placed their very lives in danger. She was meant to be part of the Exchange, to be nothing more than a blip on his radar, but others had noticed his reaction to her, and some planned to use it for their own gain.
An Alien Exchange is the first book in Keri Kruspe's Alien Exchange trilogy. Written in the third person, it covers the alternating perspective of Aimee and Qay, along with an occasional other character. This was a sweet and tragic love story, a tale of hope and rejection, regrets and manipulation. I enjoyed how the characters came together only to be torn apart and placed in uncertain situations. Hidden agendas, secret slave rings, and underhanded dealings keep the reader hooked as they wonder about the fate awaiting Aimee as things go from bad to worse. I thought the characters were interesting and well developed and the erotic scenes were passionate and intense. Adventure, romance, heartbreak, and secrets make this book a must-read for those who enjoy romance with an extra flair.
