Read Contaminated

The people of my planet are plagued by a devastating genetic curse. To treat the disease’s effects, we’ve turned to cultivating a rare flower. That’s my occupation: raising and studying this flower. That’s precisely what I’m doing the daycycle that an alien drops into our research plot, approaches our plant…
And cuts my flower’s head off, stealing the bloom.She stole our only hope. I can’t let her get away.

I liked this but not as well as the second one (which I read first 🤷‍♀️). A fun reimagining of Beauty and the Beast with lots of humor. I’d have liked it a little longer — a little more plot to make them act on their attraction would have been beneficial, I think.
