The hero is from the same planet as the previous hero, but a different race or type, with different courtship customs and issues. He's fresh off the transport, its his first week on earth (events in this book start about a week after the big drama in ET Guy, with the destruction of the transport and closing off of earth) There are the same issues of cultural misunderstandings and not knowing enough about each other's ways, but they're a bit more serious in this book. The hero, Ro, is a charming and sweet guy, and he and the heroine become friends right away. It takes a bit longer for them to come together romantically, and then the road is bumpy as each tries to please the other.
If you haven't read the ET Guy, the setup is this- Earth of a few hundred years into the future has made contact with an advanced alien civililization that is at war with this other alien people. The hero's planet was invaded by the bad aliens and they come to earth as refugees in big transports that take 3 years to arrive. The heroine works at the agency that deals with inbound customs, settlement, education, and integration (like MIB but without the flashy thingies). There's some political drama about immigrant aliens taking up housing and resources, the motives of their ally aliens, and fallout from the destruction of a transport ship in the previous book (ally aliens blew it up because it had enemy aliens on board, killing the crew and passengers). If you don't like sci-fi or outer space, don't worry, it's entirely set on earth, no space battles or transporters or laser fights.
Ending is super abrupt, I'd have liked a bit more about their jobs, his health, things like that.
