Seventeen-year-old high school transfer student Eve Carson is the genetic cure-all for droolworthy Teluosian alien King, Adam Plain.
As Adam tries to convince Eve he wants her and not just her DNA, Eve discovers a hidden world of interstellar traders, human "genetic cows," and teen abductions by a government that will do anything to control the Teluosians on Earth.
When Eve's mom is kidnapped, loyalties are tested. Is Eve Adam's true love or his next "genetic cow?"
I'm dangerous to you. You have to leave. I don't want to hurt you."
I noticed the skin I was wiping was getting rougher. When I moved the shirt I saw small whiskers emerging from his face. He kept trying to move away from me. Tired of it all, I grabbed him by the shoulders. When his eyes connected with me I noticed they were almond shaped and so dark that I could see myself in them.
"Adam, I need you to concentrate."
"Run," he growled.
"Adam, stop being stupid. I'm already scared, and I don't need you making it worse than your face change going on." When I stood up Adam looked as if he took a breath of relief.
Tough! I wasn't leaving him. I just needed to get to my cell phone in my pocket. Then I slipped behind him and wrapped my arms around him. At first, he tensed, but when I started to stroke his hair he relaxed against me.
"Just lay here and help will come. I know a friend who will help us."
"No, you don't know understand. I may not be able to control myself now. Eve—"
"Shh. It'll be fine. You've lost too much blood to argue with me."
I knew he didn't really agree but he was too weak. I had my phone in my right hand and dialed a number I thought I would never need.
The phone rang two times before he answered. "Bryan."
I unconsciously grabbed Adam tighter.
"This is Bryan. Speak."
"It's me, Eve. I need your help."
I waited. It seemed like forever but then he spoke. "You never listen, Eve. Give me your address."
