The Delight

A lonely alien with wings rescued a sweet little girl and discovers that healing his losses might not be as impossible as he thinks.  I have a soft spot for the aliens who lost everything back on their world and found refuge on earth.  It was with anticipation that I picked up Wingman’s story.


Review

Wingman is the second of the Alien Castaways series.  It reads standalone, but I definitely got more out of it by starting with Chameleon where the characters and their situation were introduced.

Wingman, with his new legal ID status is exploring the little Idaho town out of curiosity and a bit of sadness for his own destroyed village when he spots a little human girl in danger.  His rescue leads to the little girl seeing his wings and thinking he’s an angel.  She invites him to her birthday party.

Widowed Delia thought her daughter was making it up until a huge winged man is sitting at her daughter’s birthday table.  At first, mistrust reigns because she fled from Philadelphia from a stalker and now she finds the strangest of strangers in her home.  But another encounter and an understanding of his heroic rescue to her child leads to a chance to act on their flaring attraction.

Wingman was one of the sweetest, heart-warming sci-fi romances I’ve read in a while.  It was adorable seeing Wingman with Delia and Izzy.   His grief was lightened by meeting them and being part of their lives.  But, this was also the usual sensual romance, moments of action, and the underlying need for Wingman to heal and Delia trying love again.

The camaraderie of the alien group of friends that is slowly growing into families on earth is a great additional element that I love seeing developed as the series progresses.

In summary, this quick and easy read was sometimes adorable, exciting, hot, and just the thing.  Those who enjoy light sci-fi romance should try out the series.

My thanks to the author for providing this book to read in exchange for an honest review.

About the Book
Wingman by Cara BristolWINGMAN BY CARA BRISTOL

He has wings, but this alien is no angel…

Traumatized by the deaths of his family and the destruction of his planet, Wingman lands on Earth in search of a haven and the solitude to nurse his emotional wounds. When a chance decision foils a kidnapping, he’s drawn into the life of a young widow and her daughter. He’s shocked to discover the human woman is his genmate, the one he’s genetically bonded to.

To escape a stalker, Delia and her imaginative, impressionable daughter flee to a small town where nobody can find them. She’s concerned, but not overly so, when her daughter says she’s invited an angel to her birthday party.

Until the winged alien actually shows up. After a rocky start, Delia begins to see Wingman for what he really is—one of the kindest, most protective, sexiest men she’s ever met.

But just as passion deepens their bond, dangers resurface to threaten Delia and her child. Will Wingman be able to confront the demons of his past to make the sacrifice necessary to protect them?

I was born and raised near Sacramento, CA. I have read since I was four years old and developed tastes that run the gamut of literature. I went away to college and have a degree in education, a certificate in family history research, and a certificate in social work. I worked for a non-profit agency with low income families for 20 years which included being responsible for the children’s library and promoting/teaching adult literacy. I have lived in Southeast Michigan for the last 18 years and I am currently a book addicted homemaker with a cat and husband who keep me grounded. Recently, I made it a challenge to review each book that I have read as a favor to author friends who said reviews are important. I have done reviews for Good Reads, Amazon, eBay, and Smashwords, but mostly at Goodreads and Amazon.

I think this series is even better than her first series that brought the aliens to earth. 🙂
