My father was abducted by aliens.
Or so I believed for the last eighteen years.
After my mother's death, I moved to Roswell, capital of all things alien. I’m going to find out the truth and nothing will stop me... except Boone Santos.
Compared to the intergalactic tinfoil hat brigade, he's a god amongst mere mortals. Too handsome for his own good (and mine), with a grumpy arrogance, and the most beautiful smile ever—he smashes my plan to pieces like a UFO crashing into the desert.
I need a tinfoil hat for my heart.
Do I believe in aliens? I’m not sure.
What do I believe? I’m not going to fall in love with Boone. Definitely not...

In Review: My Thoughts
I’ll admit right off I fall somewhere comfortably in the middle between skeptic and believer when it comes to aliens. Even still, I couldn’t pass up Tinfoil Heart when I saw the cover and read the blurb. I’ve only read one of Daisy’s books previously, but I really enjoyed it. So that combined with the quirky nature of this book made me want to read it all the more. I absolutely adored it, too. Not only did it make me laugh and swoon, it also gave me a pretty hefty dose of feels before it was all said and done. Otherwise known as the perfect rom com combo for me.
I loved how Daisy took Lucy’s journey for the truth about her father’s disappearance and mixed it with the legend and lore of Roswell, New Mexico. Of course, that journey became all the more interesting when she met the somewhat mysterious local hottie, Boone. (And his sister, because honestly I can’t NOT mention Shari.) What starts out as her crushing on him from afar during her shifts at the local diner turns into something a lot more real and I was totally here for it. Their chemistry was off the charts and I was totally charmed by them.
Not only did Tinfoil Heart give me a great romance, but Lucy’s journey for the truth gave me all the feels. It was really easy to relate to the things she was going through and I loved her all the more for all of it. I won’t spoil anything for you, but the exchange she and Boone had near the end of the book totally made me cry. It was really special.
The duo of epilogues — one for the skeptic and one for the believer — was a really nice touch. Since I fall somewhere in the middle, I read both. I’m glad I did, too. It was kind of Choose Your Own Adventure-ish in that way. Both were totally satisfying to me in different ways. As was the book as a whole. I enjoyed this little trip through Roswell and the time spent with Lucy and Boone.
Yes, Uranus is funny. No, it shouldn’t be used a pickup line. Ever.
“I want the thunderstorm Boone, not a version who gives me a peck on the cheek at my door.”
This is what a new star forming must feel like. Stars sparkle their light behind my eyelids as pleasure ripples through my body in waves.
I’m going to need a tinfoil hat for my heart to protect myself from Boone Santos.
“Because in all the world, there’s only one of you.”
“You don’t need your beliefs to be validated for them to be real. Faith doesn’t operate on tangibles.”
Have you read any of Daisy’s books?
What should I add to my TBR next?
