CONTAGION
One OCD neat freak alien. One human woman. Both are abducted and held captive in a very unsterile environment. What more could go wrong? ~ Simmi: I’ve broken free and I’ve also freed the human who was held captive with me. But I don’t know where we are, and I don’t know where my home is. The local wildlife may be smaller than I am, and maybe they don't have fangs near as large as mine, but I’m still terrified. My issues with germs--and my uncompromising avoidance of all the things that I’m afraid of coming into contact with--is going to get me killed in this wilderness. Thankfully, Aurora lets me follow her. Thankfully, she seems to know the way out of this endless and inhospitable woodland and desert biome. But by the end of our journey, she’ll suspect she’s harboring a contagion. I have no way to know it, but she’s afraid to tell me. Afraid of how I’ll react once I find out what she’s carrying. ***Note: This 40K, Standalone story is intended for readers 18+ due to romantic elements and adult themes. There is no cheating. There is one really germphobic alien. Thankfully, there's also a really understanding woman who is starting to fall for him. Spoiler: They're totally gonna have a Happily Ever After... just as soon as they can get off this planet that’s trying to kill them.

    Simmi to me embodies the best of Sheldon Cooper and Robert Downey Jr with a little bit of fierce predator thrown in (although bless his heart, Simmi doesn't KNOW he is a predator!) Just what I needed to end a stressful work week. 4.5 stars

    I was excited to continue the story and read about clean freak Simmi, and the book didn't disappoint!I had so much fun reading about this apex predator who is often frightened, defiantly neurotic, and hilariously naive about the trappings of humanity- such a cute germ hating bean.I also laughed at the ridiculousness at the start of the story when Simmi was more worried about the dirt and unsanitary nature of his surroundings than being threatened by his kidnappers....and chipmunks!I also liked I was excited to continue the story and read about clean freak Simmi, and the book didn't disappoint!I had so much fun reading about this apex predator who is often frightened, defiantly neurotic, and hilariously naive about the trappings of humanity- such a cute germ hating bean.I also laughed at the ridiculousness at the start of the story when Simmi was more worried about the dirt and unsanitary nature of his surroundings than being threatened by his kidnappers....and chipmunks!I also liked how he let Aurora take the lead when she was uncomfortable, and really trusted her.

    Brilliantly FUNThis is the second book by Amanda Milo that I've read. I really enjoyed the first - but this one ... so LOL funny. I absolutely loved Simmi - what a delightful bundle of neuroses! So much nicer reading a book that made me laugh than others that have made me cry. Last - I'm so with you on leeches, had one on me once 40 odd yrs ago - some things never leave you :-)

    Connected to Contaminated. Simmi is in Contaminated first. So read Contaminated first before this one if you don't want to read things out of order. by order of publication... "Standalones"1. Contaminated 2. Contagion

    belly laughing funny, romantic and engrossing my husband thinks I'm nuts, again, because I laughed so hard I had to clean my glasses before I could continue reading. absolutely recommend this book as a must read. the hero of the story is so extremely germaphobic and ocd, you have to empathize. and the heroine is a down to earth optimist. loved my escape time with Simmi and Aurora. thanks so much Amanda

    ... exploded human. HOW UNSANITARY! Hilarious! Oh Amanda Milo has done it again! She has created a world full of characters with depth and expansive personalities that tear at our heartstrings. The dialogue in this one was riveting and hilarious, but it did not feel like a comedy. There were plenty of bad spots or tense spots in the book but they did not overshadow the romance that bloomed. I loved it and am eagerly awaiting the next book from her ..

    Laugh out loud FUNNY!I loved it! Amanda Milo did it again.Though I wish there was more to Aurora's background though I understand that the story was from Simmi's point of view i feel that I was missing something vital to Aurora and therefore didn't connect as much as with Simmi (who i would very much like to be friends with btw) but overall i really enjoy the story. You really have to read "Contaminated" by Amanda Milo first to truly enjoy this one. It won't disappoint, I promise Laugh out loud FUNNY!🙊I loved it!

    I didn't think I could like Simmi more than I liked him in Erreck's book, but BOY WAS I WRONG. An apex predator with a SERIOUS fear of germs who has no idea he's sitting at the top of the food chain and is as polite as polite can be CRACKS ME UP.Seriously. Simmi rocks. Waking up to find himself imprisoned by not-so-nice humans who want to do very bad things to him is bad, but it isn't nearly as distressing as having to navigate an unclean floor and leeches and CHIPMUNKS while escaping.

Waking up to find himself imprisoned by not-so-nice humans who want to do very bad things to him is bad, but it isn't nearly as distressing as having to navigate an unclean floor and leeches and CHIPMUNKS while escaping.Fortunately for Simmi, he has Aurora on his side. Sure, she's human and she laughs at inopportune moments (like WHEN CHIPMUNKS ATTACK!), but he finds he doesn't mind her nearly as much as he thinks he should. In fact, he kind of likes her way calming him down and getting him to focus.He likes it a lot.On Aurora's end, she likes the overly-fussy alien who is unswervingly polite (even after shrieking in terror) and who obsesses over cleanliness. She doesn't mind his exoskeleton or his tail and...actually, she really ends up liking both of those things. And the, umm, deposits he makes when they get busy.I'm having big love for these two. An OCD alien probably shouldn't fall fora human woman who leaks from her eyes when amused and has an involuntary vomiting reflex on occasion, but these two WORKED FOR ME. So hard. So.

    Yes! It's finally here! It's Simmi time!As fun as the first installment, Contagion follows our favorite obsessive-compulsive, tail-sheathing germaphobe, Simmi. Like the last story, this one is told 100% from his point of view, which is delightful and very funny.Simmi has found himself in some trouble. He wakes up in a filthy room with human men who want to cut him open. He's not sure how he got here—or where here even is—but the infection potential danger is real.

Through an interesting twist of fate, Simmi finds himself free and discovers he's not entirely alone: there's a human woman in captivity with him. In an uncharacteristic move, Simmi frees her and attaches himself to her as they go on a search for civilization. Hilarity ensues as Simmi is introduced to nature...and the dreaded chipmunk. Like the last installment, this one is full to the brim with humor—much of it at Simmi's expense—and heart. Protective Alpha Simmi is amazing, and his pairing with Aurora is perfect. Thank you for the gift that is this book, Ms. Milo. All the puffy heart love for Simmi.

Simmi is scared of everything except Aurora. The lines he is coming up with have me in stiches! BACTERIA NOO BACTERIA!! ahaha!! Anyway, they start to get closer, Simmi is heaving less and less with Aurora's touch. Suddenly his mating marks FLASH AHHH!!! They fuck and it's magical. Simmi is unrecognisable, craving Auroras fluids; who would of thought! He is a fucking sex demon; those fangs and strong thighs hammering away will make all the panties drop. I'll have 10 Simmi's please, in all the colours!!(view spoiler)[They are in a bar playing pool after they finally crawled out of the forest and into civilisation when a familiar voice calls to Simmi; reunions yay!! The HEA ending is just the sweetest, like seriously there would be bloodshed if little halflings were not conceived (hide spoiler)]Of course Simmi remains overly germophobe (but that's why we love him right). They seem to fuck all the time, which is obviously my favourite part. The book was an absolute pleasure to read. So fucking funny and loads of juicy sex. This review dosn't do it justice, you must buy it.. like now.

    Milo is an auto-buy!You will laugh hard and dry your eyeballs out because you should be sleeping but you're reading without blinking cause you must finish the story! That's generally how all Amanda Milo books go for me and this one is no different. Simmi has met his match in Aurora and their pairing is hilarious, sweet and well matched.The tale lost 1 star because the ending felt both rushed and unfinished. Some elements remain unresolved - the abductors, Simmi and Erreck's home planet, how Milo is an auto-buy!You will laugh hard and dry your eyeballs out because you should be sleeping but you're reading without blinking cause you must finish the story!

Some elements remain unresolved - the abductors, Simmi and Erreck's home planet, how conveniently Erreck and Skynan turn up. And you might think this sounds like the book wasn't good. You'd be wrong, wrong, wrong!The level of laughter, the dialogue, the personalities of our lead characters, the escape, the Saloon scenes... just so funny. It's a total Abbott and Costello with Simmi as the straight man in the joke. The leading lady who isn't a shrinking violet, "surprised to be noticed" wallflower, or an indecisive drama queen is always a joy in Milo's books. Her ladies are always equal partners if not leaders and I cannot tell you what a relief that is. Lastly, the plot does not depend on misunderstandings, assumptions, low self-esteem, or any such unnecessary drama to advance. The women don't need the men to complete them. The men don't need the women to teach them how to be gentle or loving (before Aurora, Simmi cared for sick babies). All of this is why any Amando Milo book is an automatic and instant buy for me.But now I gotta wait for the next one... sigh...

Hell, after finishing it I still don’t even know what the H alien looks like except he has a chitin, antennas, and dorsal tubes?

Hell, after finishing it I still don’t even know what the H alien looks like except he has a chitin, antennas, and dorsal tubes? Does he have human features at all? And the same for the h. All I know is she has blonde hair.I know nothing about what year it is, where they are at on Earth. Hell, are they even on Earth? It’s entirely told from the H‘s POV. The story starts with him waking up from being kidnapped. He escapes after his captors accidentally blow themselves up. He sees the h on his way out in a cage and sets her free. They leave and travel through the jungle to the closest town. They have sex then run into the H’s friend and his mate and then that’s it. We lastly get a short epilogue. I think with more world building and backstory and an actual plot then this story has the potential to be so much better! The characters are great and a kind well mannered neurotic germaphobe/hypochondriac alien who is secretly an alpha male makes for an entertaining romance!

I loved Simmi 's unique brand of crazy, and all his little quirks. I thought it was great to see him grow even more info himself as the story progressed. I feel like we don't often see softer or more submissive hero's in the way that Simmi is, but this author developed and described him well enough that he continuously grew on me. He was a little squeamish and gentle while still having plenty of moments showing his strength and hotness. If I had to pick one thing to change about this book it would be that I want more. But I think that's one of those marks you see in a great writer. They give you what the story naturally provides in a way that leaves you want more even when you were completely happy with what you read. So overall this was a great as-to romance, a pretty quick read and one that featured a uniquely lovable hero who finds his HEA with his heroine that is adorable. Very good book would recommend.

I had to continually hide my face in my pillow to try to control the volume of my laughter. This was annoying to me because I couldn't continue reading while my face was covered. It also caused my pillow to become damp from the tears flowing from my eyes because I was laughing so much. I LOVE this book! I hope you enjoy it as much as I did Oh my gosh!

I hope you enjoy it as much as I did but I highly recommend you read it while everyone near you is awake. Else they may barge into your room and glare at you! In my humble opinion, there is only one thing wrong with Contagion - it did not have enough words to keep me readin, constantly, for a month :D! Please note there are a couple of sex scenes and there are approximately 20 pages of serious or semi-serious content. Those pages are probably important to help you keep from dehydrating due to tears of laughter and runny nose from same. Just in case you can't tell, I highly recommend this book and it's predecessor. I believe you will enjoy both much more if read in the order intended by the very talented (and wickedly funny) author, Amanda Milo.Read via Kindle Unlimited

Amanda Milo, just has the perfect talent to make something that doesn't sound loveable to something that is endearing and adorable, and a story that makes you lose sense of time and reality, that totally captivated me. I really love this two book series. And Simmi couldn't get any cutter lol! The world needs more Simmis in it, he Cooks and Cleans, all the while being just adorably O.C.D.! So give this a read and fall in love with aliens 😸

    I really loved this book. What made this novel more original was the fact that it was almost like Simmi was the damsel in distress. Aurora really was one of the calmest heroines I've ever read about. The role reversal was a pleasant change for the standard alien romance novel. Most importantly, I found myself laughing in public, and it's generally really difficult for me to break my composure. The dynamic between the couple was hilarious! Given how much this book put me in a good mood, it's safe I really loved this book. What made this novel more original was the fact that it was almost like Simmi was the damsel in distress.
