|When Lori first views the flame-eyed stranger as he walks into the diner, she knows there's something very different about him. It's confirmed when he tells her he's an alien searching out other aliens on Earth. But it doesn't matter what he tells her since she'll forget him as soon as he leaves. As much as he told her he didn't tell her that she's also his ONE, and that unless they come together he'll die. But when she doesn't forget him, how can he force her to leave everything she knows and loves to go home with him since there's no way he can stay on Earth? He's determined that she have the choice to follow him.
I loved this book. It just had a wonderfully fresh feel compared to most of the other sci-fi alien genre books I've read and enjoyed. Somehow Ms. Sax takes the very simple idea of an alien traveling and finding his one and taking her home with him, and gave us great characters backed up by a really strong story. Lori is a very strong woman who's willing to do most anything for those she loves. Trake is a by-the-books military man struggling with decisions of the heart vs. protocol. You just can't put the book down until they find the happy ever after you know they both deserve.
