Review: Unearthed

Reviewed by Jen
Tess has lived her entire life putting herself last. But now, she finally has the chance to live her dream as a singer. Until she is kidnapped by a sexy alien. It seems that she has a very special voice --the only one in the universe-- that can unlock the key to a secret amulet Cohl needs to pay off the men who have taken his father hostage.

Cohl takes Tess back to his home-world, and manages to convince her to help him in his cause. And of course, the two of them fall in love. But neither of them will admit their deeper feelings. Cohl believes Tess will want to return to Earth; and Tess is unsure he would even want her to stay. And so, the great misunderstanding is born.

The two manage to squeeze in a few rounds of hot sex, and a fair amount of adventure before they reach the planet that hides the amulet. And it's in the sex and the action that the book is at its best. But the pacing is uneven and the plot is fairly predictable.

It's not a bad story... pretty standard sci-fi romance fare. But it didn't have anything that really made it stand out above others in the genre. 3 stars.
