Blurb: Dylan is an Urilqii soldier, sworn to destroy the Targolt on sight and assigned to do so on the planet called Earth. He is leader of a tank squadron that’s busy testing their equipment in the southern Nevada desert outside of Pahrump. He should feel content, maybe eager for the looming conflict, but Dylan is feeling unsettled instead. What bothers him? He’s lonely. Not just any kind of lonely, but anxious for the exquisite beauty of a bonded partner.
His wishes for his soul mate to fly into the starry darkness.
While deciding what to do next, Dylan is lured to a bar oddly named Dylan’s Intoxicating Fantasy. Unable to curb his curiosity, he enters the establishment and drinks the Screaming Orgasm cocktail the bartender named Solomon puts in front of him. Shortly afterward, he meets a man named Garrett who could very well alleviate his perpetual loneliness.
Garrett had landed on the bar’s back porch three months earlier. When Solomon had offered him a meal, a room, and a job, he hadn’t hesitated. The bartender also promised the answer to all of Garrett’s desperate wishes for love. But little did Garrett know the answer to his dreams would arrive in the form of a sexy Urilqii alien…

Review: This is book three of the Intoxicating Fantasies series and can be read as a standalone book – sort of. This story also bridges a character from Michelle Robbins’ series Urilqii, which I have not read. However, after reading this I do want to find out about the world of the Urilqii – a race of aliens helping to save the world from something that reminds of the Chitari in The Avengers. I’ll continue this thought later.
The story is about Dylan and Garrett. Garrett works for the mysterious Solomon, the odd bartender that knows everyone’s fantasies in what I refer to as a Hotel California-scenario. Garrett’s had trouble in his personal life and drifted until he found work with Solomon. It is here he meets Dylan, a member of the said alien race here to protect earth. On his way to base where he works he stops.
Back to my point about Dylan being an alien protecting us humans from the Chitari. Well, it isn’t really the Chitari but I’m afraid that some vital sentences were missing early on in this story to make things clear from the get go. We are actually given the names of the evil aliens but I’m using the name to serve my point.
I said this is a standalone, and it is, but I had trouble because it felt like some things were assumed to be already known in the world of the Urilqii. In saying all that though, I do want to look into reading the series this came from, which probably means the author has done her job well.
As for Solomon, a somewhat minor character though major in his own right (if that makes sense!) it seems as we go along his mystery is becoming less but as a character he is downright intriguing. The best way to put it is that Solomon is the fairy godmother of the piece.
I am really loving this series, it covers such a broad scope but full of lots of sexy romance and fun.
