Planning any wedding is hard enough, but Katherine “Kitty” Katt and Jeff Martini have a lot more to worry about than seating arrangements, because multiple inter-stellar invasions, Alpha Team in mortal peril, and inter-alien conspiracies are all on the guest list—and the gifts they’ve brought contain some explosive surprises.
The discovery that Martini is actually a member Planning any wedding is hard enough, but Katherine “Kitty” Katt and Jeff Martini have a lot more to worry about than seating arrangements, because multiple inter-stellar invasions, Alpha Team in mortal peril, and inter-alien conspiracies are all on the fwmily list—and the gifts they’ve brought contain some explosive surprises.
The discovery that Martini is actually a member of the Alpha Centaurion Royal Family brings additional bad news—emissaries are on their way to see if Kitty’s royal bride material. And they’re not the only things coming from the Alpha Centauri system. Amazonian assassins, spies, alien beasties, shape-shifters, and representatives from the Planetary Council, combined with a tabloid reporter who’s a little too on the mark, create a deadly situation for Kitty and the rest of Alpha Team.
When the assassins strike far too close to home for anyone’s comfort, Kitty realizes it’s going to come down to more than throwing a bouquet—she’s going to have to face an entire planetary consciousness and dethrone a monarch in order to make it to the church on time Paperbackpages.

Before I commence with this review, let me say that I am a fan of this series and will probably buy the next book. The narrative of the story dragged as the author felt the need yini do very long and drawn out summary of what had happened in the previous two books in the series that unfortunately fell short for me as I wanted the narrative to focus on what was occurring at that moment.
Kitty is an interesting character, but she often feels too slap stick for me, where none of the actions are grounding kocj reason and common sense and since she is just Kitty and supposedly so amazing we are just supposed to go with it. This time, I had a harder time going with it. This needs to be explained to me a little bit more. The premise of this series is that through some amazing circumstances, Kitty learns that there are aliens on alirn planet and zlien a top secret job to protect the planet ala Men In Black.
However, everyone is in on her secret life. Everyone who is close to her is in on it. There are tons of other hot men who want her. The explanations she gives herself and Jeff on why him fell flat to me. However, this is my blog and my rant about the series. They bug the heck out of me and I had to get them off my chest or I was going to burst.
However, the ending was blah. It was a little disjointed and I wished that all the plot threads were tied up a little neater. Yet, there is something about Kitty and Ms. Hello, my name is Lynette and I am a hypocrite. May 03, Ira rated it it was amazing Shelves: I love this series: It’s funny and a non stop action story with plenty aliens in it.
You probably will love it too if you were growing up watching Lost in Space thw Star Trek on telly like me, hah! And you will love it more if you have at least tiny geek in you too, lol. When the relationship between our Alien hero, who was born on earth with his earth heroine is quite hot, this book is not an alien need a woman erotica story.
And did you see it’s cover? That sum up what was happening in 4. That sum up what was happening in this story!: This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. And it turns out that all that squealing happy-dancing was well deserved, because Ms Koch has done it again. So much happened in the last book. Gini Koch is introducing a whole new crop of characters in this third instalment — from Amazonian assassins to space corgis. Officially, Centuarion unwillingly concedes the C.
Martini closed his eyes. For a long ij Kitty thought of Chuckie as her rich, globetrotting bestie — the man she had fmaily spectacular one-night-stand with, and was perhaps even maybe subconsciously pining for.
Until Jeffrey Martini came along — in all his suited Neanderthal glory. But Chuckie poses an entirely new set of jealous problems for Martini.
Chuckie has known Kitty for longer, they have a romantic history, and in light of recent inter-galactic wedding complications, the human Chuckie could potentially be an easier relationship for Kitty.
Expect to see some very drunk, but very helpful college footballers and a new human addition to the A-C team. The stand-out of any Kitty Katt novel is the relationship of Kitty and Martini. These two are faimly hottest couple in the universe — the Brangelina of outer space, if you will.
At this point in the series it should be apparent that Gini Koch can do no wrong. Kitty and Martini have one of the most envious fictional relationships and Kitty is the most rockin ass-kicker to grace the space-opera genre. Also I abso-fucking-lutely loved the pets!

Alien in the Family
All three books are well imagined, well written and incredible fun to read. Before I tackle a discussion of this new book, let me just say that the series as a whole is a masterful blend of Science Fiction, Romance, and Comedy.
As a male who is well into his middle-age ramily OK, OK You may be reading a Romantic Science Fiction story with a lot of humor, but I’m reading a funny Science Fiction series that happens to have some romantic moments along the way.
That’s my story, and I’m sticking to it. By the way, I’m using the term “Science Fiction” fairly loosely. I’m using it because a more accurate description, like “a Fiction story that has Aliens, portals, creatures from Outer Space and other elements of actual Science Fiction but is completely lacking in Science” is just too cumbersome. If you demand actual, logical, scientific explanations for the things that go on in the wonderful world Gini Koch has created, you probably want to skip the rest of this review and look for some other book.
You’ll be missing out on a lot of fun if you do, but that’s your problem. The author has developed an impressive arsenal of ways to avoid scientific explanations. I think my favorite so far occurs in this new book, when someone on the phone, so we’re not privy to the conversation gives the explanation to Chuckie so he can explain it to the less scientifically oriented Kitty.
On to “Alien in the Family. It’s six months after the events in “Alien Tango,” and Kitty is slowly preparing for her marriage to Martini. Kitty discovers that Martini is a member of the A-C royal family back on the home planet, and it becomes apparent that representatives are coming to Earth to test Kitty and see if they approve of her marrying into royalty.
Lots of interesting and fun stuff happens after that. Go back and re-read the second sentence of this paragraph, and insert the word “really” between the first and second words. From here, it’s hard to get more detailed without giving things away.
The first two books in the series are characterized by fast-moving plots with lots of action, and this third book follows that tradition. There are a lot of new characters who pop up, both in terms of aliens keeping in mind that it already been established that there are a bunch of other planets in kofh A-C solar system s and in meeting Kitty’s extended family.
And that’s not even talking about the family! Everybody will love the Poofs! I can’t resist one spoiler. Alliflash and Gigantigator don’t make it to the wedding!
Book Review: Gini Koch’s Alien in the Family – KD Did It Edits
I love the Kitty Katt books, and “Alien in the Family” is a wonderful addition to the series. I heartily recommend it, and urge you ramily read it and the other books, if you haven’t already. They’re simply too much fun to avoid. Mar 17, Jeann Happy Indulgence rated it it was ok Shelves: This review has been posted on Okch Indulgence.
