Marketing manager Katherine "Kitty" Katt had just finished a day on jury duty. When she stepped out of the Pueblo Caliente courthouse, all she was thinking about was the work she had to get caught up on. Then her attention was caught by a fight between a couple that looked like it was about to turn ugly. But ugly didn't even begin to cover it when the "man" suddenly transformed into a huge, winged monster right out of a grade Z science fiction movie and went on a deadly killing spree. In hindsight, Kitty realized she probably should have panicked and run screaming the way everyone around her was doing. Instead she sprinted into action to take down the alien.
In the middle of all the screeching and the ensuing chaos, a hunk in an Armani suit suddenly appeared beside her, introduced himself as Jeff Martini with "the agency," and then insisted on leading her to a nearby limo to talk to his "boss." And that was how Kitty's new life among the aliens began...Touched by an Alien is the thrilling first installment of the Alien novels.
Oh man! Why did I wait so long to read this book. Okay, maybe it was best I waited until I was in a certain type of mood. I had been starting some pretty sad books and just had to put them down. I was looking for something different, something that wouldn’t put me into a funk. I didn’t know much besides the fact this one was about Aliens. I wasn’t sure what to expect but thankfully it was just what I needed!
Touched by an Alien was a bit cheesy but could be quite funny and entertaining. I loved Kitty and how she was always jumping into action and doing her own thing. Her and Readers friendship was one of my top favorite things about this book. Martini came on strong very quickly but he had his charm. I really wanted to get behind Christopher but I just couldn’t stand him most of the time. He was Mr. Grouch. For the most part though I was a fan of a majority of the characters.
Overall, Touched by an Alien was an addictive Sci-fi Comedy. I could see it being a hilarious movie. It isn’t something you want to take too seriously or I’d think the chances of you enjoying it would go down. Some drawbacks were that it could be repetitive and I could get lost in all the information that was being thrown my way. It was fun though and I’m going to start the second book now!
