I highly recommend Blind Fall, and also any of Ms. Milo's books, they're all different stories in this series. Sometimes series can get stale after a few books in, this is NOT one of those series. This one was *almost* sweet in how Sanna and Breslin fell in love, but it brings the heat, too!
So, I will try not to get too spoiler-y: This is, as least to my taste, the ultimate in hot, sweet, smart and sexy romance. The protagonists are adults, and act like it. They are both reasonable and rational, and while each has worries/doubts that delay their getting together, these doubts are not related to insecurity or misunderstandings, but rather serious issues (or rather one serious issue) that needs to be addressed before they can act on their mutual attraction. In the meantime there is humor, tenderness, and companionship (both between the couple, and between them both and the various animals that play a major part in their lives). Their verbal play is spicy and delicious, always girded by respect and kindness.
This is definitely alien territory, as well. It's not glaringly obvious at first due to our heroine being blind, but as more is revealed the hero Breslin is definitely different in many ways from a human male. I'm also enchanted by the Na'rith Ekan who is, I think, a whole lot more sly and cunning about Breslin and Sanna and how to manipulate them than his clueless-seeming behavior might appear. (And just let me throw out into the universe how very very desperate I am to learn more about why he chose Beth and how that whole thing with her and the crew went down!!)
This whole story just totally rings my bells, and when I finished it I went right back to the beginning and started over...more than once....uhm, more than twice...I was reading on KU and finally decided to just buy the damned thing so I could have it always, and love it and cuddle it and call it George.
In the meantime I did read the remaining books in the series and they are really, really good! The exhaustion of the chase from book one was lessened tremendously in the following books, allowing me to enjoy the story and the characters and their interactions with each other, and book 4, the one before this one (titled Craved by an Alien, I think) is a laugh out loud funny delight, with an even more delightful mini-story tucked in at the end. Amanda Milo is a treasure and I can't wait to see what she'll come up with next.
I also really, really, really appreciated that this book not only included a character with a disability, but it did so in an un-ableist way. AND it didn't use the same old (and ableist) tropes that typically accompany blindness (she's blind so she can see the ugly guy for his inner beauty kind of thing). And while it does focus on her blindness at times, it's not in a way that's inspo-porny, it's just her speaking of how others have reacted and interacted with her every day of her life. (The usual crap most disabled individuals have to put up with). She takes her new surroundings and situation with greater ease than others and is able to figure things out pretty quickly.
Breslin is an un-apologetically sweet, considerate and soulful giant alien who puts his heart into everything he does. He's a big contrast to his friend Ekan who drags him into the non-Gryfala scheme. Ekan's a bit clueless, blunt, and crass. One can only imagine how that friendship goes! He's also a bit familiar... And in contrast to the other universal societies, he lives on a world with rudimentary technology, though not unaware of the technological advancements of the universe. His culture, mannerisms and even figures of speech are eerily similar to Western-society humans.
And Kota's adorable. Whether she's gnawing on an alien's leg or figuring out sneaky ways to get extra treats, she's utterly perfect <3

This story, for me, is the best one yet. It leaves you with all the gooey, mushy feelings and a goofy grin (well that's how it left me anyway). Breslin is just so sweet, caring and adores his San San. If you like aliens that look like aliens the. You'll like this book. You don't actually 'see' the alien but you'll gleam a lot from Sanna's touch sight just how different he is.
Well written even with the difficulty of writing from a blind persons perspective so well done Ms Milo and go buy this everyone else
Keeps you wanting to read. Lol.
