Kendra L. Saunders is a time-and-space traveling fashionista author who writes books about magical, dark-haired men, interviews famous people, and suggests way too many bands to you via whatever social media platform she can get her hands on.

I don't want to put spoilers in this, but be ready when you see something about a naked vinyl record!
Daisy Kirkwood just escaped her rather bland life to start over in New York City when she gets kidnapped by two aliens posing as hot British popstars - Devon and Griffin. The extraterrestrial duo are on a mission to gain support from a powerful secret society called the Origin Collective and perhaps save the world while in the process.
“Part High Fidelity, part Bridget Jones’ Diary, part Doctor Who, Dating An Alien Popstar a sexy romantic comedy.”
Taking cues from such writers as Neil Gaiman, Ray Bradbury, and Douglas Adams Saunders demonstrates that she understands her characters’ wants and needs inside and out, especially given the background of Devon and Griffin and why they’re on said quest. I enjoyed their sense of humor and I can see Saunders doesn’t take herself too seriously when it comes to laying on the comedy nice and thick.
When Kendra announced what the book would be about I knew the theme of music and rockstars would fit in perfectly with our theme here on Nimrod Street. In fact, would you believe DAAPS was actually inspired by her favorite English band Muse?
“I was inspired by their insane, colorful, bonkers Panic Station music video. I just kept thinking, what if aliens crashed to Earth and pretended to be pop stars? What if they loved high fashion? This idea came to me on Christmas a few years ago, and not long after, I started writing it for fun. It was the easiest book I've ever written. I got to mention the book and it's Panic Station inspiration to Matt Bellamy last summer in New York, and he had a good laugh at the title. So cool!”
Personally, I feel like I could relate to that particular bit in the novel: who hasn’t felt like they were kidnapped by their favorite band at one point or another to embark on an insane journey for it all be worth it in the end? I know I’ve felt that same way many times in my life looking up to my favorite artists - it’s why I find myself here on this website typing out a book review.
With the recent passing of David Bowie Kendra says she also felt inspired by his life as an artist, so she decided to use him as a running theme in the book. As an added bonus, the sequel “Engaged To An Alien Popstar” is said to focus a bit on him this time around. It’ll be out sometime soon.
“I was just gutted when I saw the news. As a thank you to him for his inspiration, the sequel will be dedicated to him, and there will be mention of his passing later in the series. It still doesn't feel real.”
The book will be available June 7th, 2016 via Crimson Tree Publishing on paperback.
Now that I've read it.
It's a good romantic read. It didn't slap me upside the head with lots of unnecessary sex scenes, which is a big pet peeve of mine. The characters were cute and entertaining and i loved the running gag with David Bowie. I kind of hoped it would be somewhat fantastical and have him exist in this world that the author's created despite his unfortunate death.
However, great stuff.
Daisy, aka Wanda runs-literally-into some aliens, and is promptly kidnapped to provide style advice to Griffin, an Alien Pop Star!!!
This book is all about Daisy, who Griffin insists on calling Wanda, and her adventures with aliens.
I loved that Daisy immediately recognized that if she left her aliens, they could run into someone less than honorable and get into more trouble.
Dating an Alien Pop Star is a wonderful can't miss ride, and I cannot wait for more!!!
***Review has been done in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official.
The story held my interest from the first page--I grumblingly set my Kindle down when I had to go off and do adulting things. The characters are funny, three-dimensional, and believable (in the fantasy genre, that is). I'm more than ready for the sequel!
