The first night Butch is set to watch her, Claire is attacked by a strange man with a third eye. From that moment on, Claire’s life turns into something off of network television. Her father disappears, her mother reappears, and the man she can’t quit thinking about turns out not to be a man at all.
Deep Cover by Moira Reid is one of the most enjoyable stories I’ve read this year, earning 5 tombstones. It’s sexy, funny, entertaining, and above all, believable. That’s a tall order for a book about aliens and secret government agencies.
This is the first time I’ve read anything by Moira Reid, and I feel like I’ve been missing out on something great. She switched from Claire’s perspective to Butch’s with ease, giving the reader a look into the minds of both parties in this reluctant romance without making it sound like a woman was trying to write what she thought a man would say and feel. I felt connected to the characters and was able to follow them on their journey of self-evaluation without having to mentally fill in the gaps.
I’ve never been a big fan of alien stories—Sigourney Weaver made sure that I was scared to death of aliens instead of attracted to them—but I thoroughly enjoyed the world Moira created. Her ability to weave a flawless story from start to finish has made me an instant fan.
