All I Wanted Was To Become A Scientist But Now I've Got An Alien Boyfriend (Paperback)
"Sometimes I think it would have been easier if I hadn't accepted the free shower at the hot alien's apartment."
For the past few years, my life has kind of blown. On Earth, I dedicated my entire existence to science, even if my peers dismissed me as a pretty face. When I got abducted by aliens, I was forced to dance in a bubble for extra-terrestrial enjoyment.
I can't get anyone to take me seriously even in space.
When I escaped by crashing my alien captor's bus, Gra'eth saved me from drowning and even offered me a place to stay. He keeps telling people I'm his mate, even though I keep telling him the human word for what we are is roommates, but he refuses to say it that way. Sometimes I can't tell if he's being sarcastic or serious-and for my very literal neurodivergent brain, that's a big problem.
I never expected to have to save Jessy, and I certainly never expected for this strange human to be my mate. Her idea of fun would be to take apart my data pad only to see if she could put it back together again, which sounds like torture to me.
I've convinced her to stay in my apartment as what she calls a roommate. The mating bond won't let me let her leave, but humans can't even feel it. I don't know how to keep things friendly when just the smell of her hair is enough to send me into a mating frenzy.
I don't want to make her uncomfortable, but I can't keep fighting the pull of this bond. This little speckled human will be the death of me.
