Review: My Boyfriend’s an Alien by L.M. Brown

My Boyfriend’s an Alien

by L.M. Brown
Published December 27th 2013 by Totally Bound

My Rating: 5 of 5 Stars

Can an alien with no knowledge of humans or concept of sex find lasting love with a human man?
Zak, an alien from the planet Trimmeron, is a member of a race of beings who transform into other species during their years of puberty. It’s customary for the youngsters to be fostered to the worlds native to their new forms, to study and learn about the races who will play an important part in their lives.

When Zak turns into a human it comes as a surprise to everyone, for only one other before him has ever done so. Nevertheless he is sent to Earth, a world he views as primitive and barbaric. He arrives with a chip on his shoulder and attitude to spare. He does not believe anyone on Earth can have anything to teach him.
When Zak meets college student Sam he soon discovers he has a lot to learn, not only about humans, but also about himself.

Trapped on an unfamiliar world and in a strange body that seems to have a mind of its own, Zak has no idea what is happening to him, only that Sam seems to be the key to the strange afflictions he is suffering from. 

But can an alien find love with a human being?

This was just funny. Hilarious. Take it this way: Do Not Drink While Reading. I was. When the shower scene at the school came up? Yeah, you get the picture.

I had absolutely no idea what I was thinking of when I clicked that option to get this book. I was thinking this may be a spoof on that movie, My Stepmother Is An Alien and thought this would be good laugh. I mean, L.M. Brown is not an author I miss out on. So yeah, this was a spoof. A spoof on us humans, particularly the male species.

First, Zak didn't really know what to think about the added appendage. Then when it started working? He thought he was dying of some weird Earth disease. It was like, swelling, then hurting, then swelling some more and he could not walk properly? It only happened when Sam was around or when he thought of Sam. When his foster father told him how to handle it? Okay, no spoilers. 

Trust me. This was funny.

The bit of drama involved Sam and he is sick. Although Zak knew his world could cure him, he could not just walk up and say "I am an alien." Right?

Which is what he did and he sounded so crazy it was laughable.

But Sam loves him. And Zak loves Sam back.

These two guys were just so sweet and it was great reading such a lighthearted book in the middle of a New Year's hangover.

Trust me. Don't drink when reading. But do read this. This just made my day. 

Just read it. heheheeeeee

Note: Okay, so I started out with a 4 Stars Rating for this book. But I just loved this for making me laugh so hard. So upping it another star. Loved, loved, loved this.
