Summary via Goodreads:
Contains mild spoilers if you haven’t read Here, the first book in the trilogy.
When Milo Mitchell falls for the beautiful, tuxedo-clad guy she found wandering her family’s rural Colorado property, she never dreamed he was a scout from another galaxy, or that their relationship would leave him with an impossible choice: eradicating humankind, or initiating the end of his own people.
Nick’s job is finding the elements his people need to power their elaborate interweb of minds. Being a scout means he is capable of traveling to other planets on his own. It also means that, unlike The Rest, he has access to primitive feelings and individual desires. For eons, he was part of the whole, but when he encountered Milo, his obsession with her changed everything.
Nick’s partner, Vera, is capable of independent thought, but not compelled by it. She is satisfied with her existence as one of The Rest, and she won’t agree that humans are worth sparing; not when their planet has a precious cache of the gold her people need so badly.
While Vera tries to force Nick into endorsing an Earth invasion, working behind the scenes to tie his hands, and the Department of Defense lays a trap for them with Milo’s mom as bait, Nick and Milo are waging their own war – against a primal desire that can only lead to one thing: heartbreak.
ARE YOU KIDDING ME?!?! I KNEW IT. I KNEW IT, I KNEW THIS WOULD HAPPEN. GAH.

First thoughts: Well I was very pleased with waiting to read the first book in this series until this one was out, but as patterns go, this also had a cliffie and i am more than certain i know something but i can’t say because SPOILER, but i wish i had waited to read this only until i knew when the next one was coming out XD. Anyways – as good if not better than the first ^.^
Thoughts on Plot: So this one moved fast, fast, fast, the first one had a bit of a slower pace, well this one you just go go go and i LOVED IT, seriously LOVED. So anyways the plot thickens all, we are learning a little more about Vera and Nick’s race, we are running the hell away from the DOD, we are just in an ever state of moving. I loved the action in this book, ahh so good. And while i figured things out pretty quickly i didn’t even care. i was just ready to eat this story up – warning about half way through this book you won’t be able to stop, so make sure you have time to read it or you will be kicking yourself. The romance between Nick and Milo – holy hotness, ladies grab your fans. 😉
Milo: Milo is awesome as she was in book one, she has a lot A LOT A LOT to deal with in this book and i think she does it splendidly. I really enjoyed her in this book, while she wasn’t that awkward weird girl, she started to grow more into herself, more sure of herself and that was awesome to see. Therre isn’t a whole lot to say more about her other than i loved her as much i as i did before.
Nick: sexy as always. i think he too came out of his shell a bit more in this book. again i don’t have much to add from my first review of Nick, i liked him and I can’t wait to have more of him. now please.
The ending: I so think i know what is going on and i want to tell someone my awesome theory who has read this book….anyways besides that i need more like now. right now. NOW.
