But David’s not here to find a girlfriend. He’s from another planet, and if Jess can’t help him get back to his ship, he’ll be stuck on Earth with nothing to look forward to but the pointy end of a dissection scalpel. But her father runs their house like an army barracks. and with an alien on the loose, Major Dad isn’t too keen on the idea of Jess going anywhere.
So how the heck is she supposed to help the sweetest, strangest, and cutest guy she’s ever met? Hiding him in her room probably isn’t the best idea. Especially since her Dad is in charge of the squadron searching for David.
That doesn’t mean she won’t do it.
It just means she can't get caught. Helping David get home while protecting her heart—that’s gonna be the hard part.
After all, she can't really fall for a guy whose not exactly from here. As they race through the woods with Major Dad and most of the U.S. military one breath behind them, Jess and David grow closer than either of them anticipated. But all is not what it seems. David has a genocide-sized secret, and one betrayal later, they are both in handcuffs as alien warships are positioning themselves around the globe. Time is ticking down to Armageddon, and Jess must think fast if she's to save the boy she cares about without sacrificing Earth—and everyone on it.
FIRE IN THE WOODS is Star-Crossed meets Close Encounters of the Third Kind!
I loved this book since the beginning. I am a sucker for alien books and this one was perfect!
Jessica was a great lead character, she was just unstoppable. She did and risked everything to help David, her new "friend", an alien she found in the woods who is also being hunted by her dad, Major Martinez and the U.S Military. But this will not stop her. Jess is verra stubborn, does not listen nor acts before thinking and that is what makes her a great character. She is not weak or afraid to make a decision, and she does what she thinks is right and this is what gets her in trouble with the Major... all of the time :P
David - I loved his character, he is not the type of character that you will drool over. And I think that is because since he was new here on earth, he just did not know anything about us, how to act like a human, how to kiss and do other things.
Major Martinez aka Jessica's dad - To ME he was super duper hot! I have a weakness for older men and I always end up liking the older characters in any book I read.
I recommend this book to anyone that loves alien stories.
Writing was great. Story was great.Very entertaining and funny. Characters were super duper great!
