For Kim and her memory-challenged girlfriend Angel, a job searching for signs of alien activity implies sanctioned permission to do what needs to be done. Turns out, they're going to need it! What they lack in skill and training, they make up for with tenacity. But as a fan of science fiction in all its forms, Kim feels up to the challenge.
Their investigation attracts the notice of Naomi, an alien who'd rather find love and live in the world than enslave it. Naomi recognizes Angel as one of their own and dares to dream her own dreams of independence. If Angel could escape and become free, why couldn't she? Fortunately, no one's mentioned that becoming a super-villain isn't necessarily the perfect way to blend in and avert suspicion.
And if the fate of the world hanging in the balance wasn't bad enough, Kim suspects Angel wants to marry her! Kim believes she's found the perfect solution to keep herself single and free, but lately her own motivations have come into question. Is seducing Angel to take away Angel's reason to marry her really the best solution?
A sequel that finally answers the question, where the hell is book two? What are Angel's origins? Will Kim ever catch a clue and embrace her love for Angel? Will Naomi and her chosen love interest survive Angel's potentially fatal attempts at matchmaking? How far can the author take this romance-to-the-extreme concept before running out of ideas?
Would you consider the audio edition of The Dark Path of Romance to be better than the print version?
They were probably about level. Coombs had a few flaws but his narration was good enough that it definitely did not detract from the story.
What did you like best about this story?
The great blend of romance and hilarious comedy.
What about Richard Coombs’s performance did you like?
I felt like Coombs gave a decent performance of this one. He seemed to get the tone and humour of the story which is always super important in a story like this. His performance was not as good as that of Kendall Taylor's fantastic performance of the first book but a lot of that was not his fault. He was just not as suited to voicing an audio with pretty much an all female cast as she was!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Not really but there were loads of moments when I was laughing at the happenings and I was definitely emotionally invested in the romances and characters so the book was a success in that regard.
Any additional comments?
This was an enjoyable light-hearted tale packed full of romance, humor, fun sci-fi references, and hilarious mishaps!
