Summary taken from Goodreads:

Read Gini Koch's blogs and other content on the Penguin Community.

It's been five months since marketing manager Katherine "Kitty" Katt started working with the aliens from Alpha Centauri, and she and Jeff Martini are getting closer. But when an experimental spacecraft is mysteriously returned to the Kennedy Space Center, Kitty and the rest of her team are called in to investigate. Now the team must survive murderous attacks, remove a space entity from a group of astronauts, and avoid an unhinged woman with a serious crush on Kitty's high school boyfriend. And that's all before evil masterminds decide Kitty's extermination is vital.

Review:

Ok so this book was a whole different bunch of crazy goodness compared to the first one. Instead of this one being all about “when Alien’s attack” its more along the lines of “when humans attack”. Yup, there are not so many aliens in this book other than the good boys and girls of A-C. But there are a lot of crazy alien, marriage proposals, crazy women, and crazy intertwining plots. This one was different in many way from the first as I find me have a more scared Kitty but also a more brave Kitty in some ways because she does things even when she knows that Jeff won’t be around to save her. And of course Jeff is around a lot so that makes the book all the more appealing. I did however find all the twist and turns of this novel a little more complicated and hard to follow than the first. And really when will people start telling Kitty everything instead of just letting her find things out later on. I mean come on, she’s going to find out. Its just in her nature.

Good:

Kitty: She’s strong. She takes on ‘gators, crazy men, men that are in love with her, other things that are from out of this world, alien mothers, and a high school reunion.

Jeff: Hot as hell. I can understand Kitty’s fascination.

Christopher: Also hotter than hell. I hope they find a girl for him in the next couple of novels. He needs one.

Chuckie: Finally. We’ve heard so much about him and we finally meet and what’s that? He’s also hotter than hell.

James Reader: Still gay. Still hot. Still awesome.

Bad:

Kitty: Alright I know I listed Kitty as one of the good things in this novel but she also bothered me in some ways. Kitty gets really confused…throughout this novel. I don’t really understand why she was confused. She seems to let all the “crazy awesome sex” over take her actual brain.

Overall (Writing style, story line, and general):

Overall I found this one a little confusing to follow but generally when Kitty explains it to everyone you start to get the picture. Even with Kitty being, in my opinion, completely stupid in this novel it was still a good novel. I like that there was the complete 180 change from hostile aliens to hostile humans from the first to the second novel. It adds a little variety. But I will admit this book was confusing there were some things I had to re-read. However, I liked the Alligators.
