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?"
He leaned down next to my throat and took a deep sniff from it. "Oh yeah, you're the cure. Don't worry, human, it won't hurt for long."
My eyes fell to his open mouth. His teeth were yellow and jagged. His breath stank so bad, it was worse than the girls' bathroom at the end of the day.
I remembered what I had seen in Adam's mind. I thought of him and hoped that Bryan would come and save him.
I'm sorry Adam. I wish things had been different.
Eve! You never listen.
Now I knew I was dying. I was imagining Adam in my head. I didn't know what death would bring, but at least no one was here to hear me. I wanted to die with some pride. I guess it's true, when you die you feel lighter. The weight that was on me was gone. A breeze blew across my body and for a moment I thought I smelled Adam. When I opened my eyes to see if Dweeb Boy had started his bloodthirsty goal of harvesting me, I saw Adam.
He was holding his side and looked paler than I thought any living person could look. I reached my hand up. "Adam?"
He smiled weakly, and he fell on his butt. I looked behind him and Dweeb Boy was five feet away. Adam leaned against the tree next to me.
"Eve, get up and run. I'll hold him." I knew he couldn't do it. Still he pulled himself up and stood. He wavered and offered me a hand. It hurt so bad, but if he could stand, then so could I. When I got to my feet, he steadied me.
