Synopsis from Goodreads

She is desperately seeking freedom…

On the eve before her twenty-first birthday, Skylar steals a ship and escapes from the planet Rebed. She refuses to be another wife for the slimy space pirate that is her betrothed. After hearing of her brothers’ success, she applies to the 1Night Stand service on her way to Earth, hoping Madame Eve can find her a hero, to make her feel special, even if for only one night.

He is trying to fit in…

A longtime friend to Skylar’s brothers, he’s always relegated her to the look and don’t touch category. Though, Daran traveled to Earth years ago, he still struggles to fit in on the planet. When his boss suggests a blind date, he reluctantly agrees. What would happen if anyone found out about his alien ancestry?

And they are not at all meant to be together…

Has Madame Eve made a huge mistake, or will Daran tread into forbidden territory to be with the one woman he’s always wanted, and become the hero Skylar craves?

********************************************* 

    I really enjoyed His Alien Virgin. The story is super short, but it was quite satisfying. Our main character, Skylar, wants to run away from a life of misery. Her brothers have sent her to the planet of Rebed. It is "supposed" to be a planet that helps young women. Instead, the evil woman that runs it sells girls to the highest bidder and Skylar is set to marry an evil space pirate with tenacles. That is if she doesn't run for her life first. She has one shot and she won't let it go to waste.

     I really like Skylar. I was rooting for her from the get go. She is so determined and even if that means possible death, she is not going to be some sex slave. She heard about Madame Eve and her services through her brothers' wife, Danyka. She wants to find her own true love, but she knows she has to leave Rebed to do it. I loved her push to get free. We also have Daran. Daran is someone Skylar knew from years ago. She thinks Daran is there to send her back to Rebed. Her brothers would have made sure of it. Skylar doesn't trust him. But when they meet up, they find that Madame Eve has done it again.

    I did like the connection between Daran and Skylar. I just wish we got more of it. I don't feel like I got enough of Daran's personality quite yet. Skylar is the little sister to Volan and Galan from the Satin Sheets in Space. We don't see them really in this book, but Skylar is afraid of them catching her. She thinks they will send her to Rebed. I had a bit of an issue with this because I wasn't sure where her fear came from. It seemed like her brothers have been just as fooled as everyone else when it comes to Rebed, but Skylar was scared to the point of making her brothers seems like monsters. I just felt like something else was missing here because her fear for the evil pirate makes sense, but her brothers was a different story. There wasn't much confrontation for me as well. I mean, there is a villain, but we don't actually get much of him. But like I said, could be me. I am just bloodthirsty and he really needed to get his ass kicked.

    Nonetheless, this was a good story to get into. It was a breeze and had a main character that was easy to love. I really loved what she did in the end of the book as well. It is great coming across characters that are willing to help people like that. This is a good read to pick up for some afternoon delight.

Excerpt
His evening was supposed to be fun and exciting. Not filled with the worry of his companion learning of his extraterrestrial origins, or of her outing him to the world. He’d kept his hair short, to hide the feathers that grew in when his locks reached a certain length. And, each morning, he covered his exposed skin with waterproof foundation to conceal the blue tinge of his skin. But, as soon as he removed his clothing later in the night, his façade would end. He wouldn’t be able to hide his differences. Unless we stay in this part of the hotel all night. The dim lighting would make his skin color less obvious.
Perfect! He stood, his muscles finally relaxing, the tension melting away. Circling the room, he blew out every third candle. Just to be sure. In the morning, his one-night lover would leave, never knowing she’d had sex with an alien.
Daran returned to his chair, leaning back, hands behind his head. Or, if he was really lucky, he’d find an Earth woman who considered extraterrestrials to be sexy.
The door to the observatory rattled and he jumped to his feet, brushing sweaty palms across his pants. Heart pounding, he glanced up at the sky. Gods, please let this evening work out.
With a burst of light, the door opened. A woman stepped through, her long, lean body hidden in shadows. Clutching his fingers behind his back, he waited for her to move closer, needing to see her better.
A strange tingling filled him. Not good. Something’s wrong. He swallowed the sudden lump in his throat. I should never have agreed to this. Trying to step back, he stumbled when the message didn’t reach his feet.
His date drew nearer, her appearance becoming more defined. A silver dress hugged her body, both protecting and giving a hint of the delicious treat inside. The candlelight reflected off her wide eyes, leaving them glowing like sapphires. With most of her hair pulled back, the remaining long blue tendrils framed her face and highlighted her matching lips. But her radiant, mesmerizing eyes sparked his recognition. He knew her. His stomach sank along with all hopes for the evening.
Oh, fuck.”
Of all the women on Earth—hell, in the universe—for him to be set up with, Madame Eve had to pick the one lover he could never have.
