"Beyond twisted and filthy hot, Strangeways is the most unique sci-fi romance I've read in years!" NYT Bestselling author, Anna Zaires

I have been chosen.

One moment I was leaving work, the next I was entertaining a silvery-green alien intent on knowing me fully.

Their invasion of our world nonviolent, seamless.

They dress as human men, eat in human restaurants, vote, pay taxes, and are controlling every last one of us.

I don't understand how no one else can see what I see? That their beauty is a trap.

They have come here for women, intent on creating life partners—through seduction, mental manipulation, employing muscular bodies capable of fulfilling any female desire. Shaping themselves to our wants.

Until we've each been claimed, marked, and changed. Assimilated.

We don't have a choice. They can make us like it. They can make us desire them. They can make us do anything they want.


  • Such a good read!

    Such a great and unexpected sci-fi romance! Emily and Phi are such a sexy couple and I love this author’s writing style. The plot is unique and fun and I would love to read more stories from this universe. Phi is a totally sweetheart and I would definitely want one for myself haha. Awesome read and definitely recommend for some sweet and sexy aliens!
  • Alien invasion

    By Eric122805
    I’m a huge fan of Addison Cains writing. I’m always amazed at how she can take you into a story so quickly. Strangeways was short, but I would love to see it turned into a full length novel.
  • Strangeways has it all

    By Gl0ssbones
    It's got the fantasy, the suspension of disbelief, but more importantly, it's got me believing and hoping there are intelligent life forms out there with great, adaptable assets who are down for this type of alien invasion superbly detailed in this book. I could not, would not put it down until the end. Clever with the genetic manipulation and streamlined integration, it's a striking science fiction short story. The cultural setup in the post invasion setup is realistic and sets up the female protagonist's key assets to shine. It ties up neatly with a happy, pleasing ending.
  • OH WHAT A NIGHT! Must Read

    By Mochabreeze
    This book was so hot I had my mouth open the whole time. I love, love, love Addison Cain’s books! I like the story so much that I have read this book at least 3 times. Addison Cain is on her way to becoming the Queen of IR love and romance with an erotic flare! I like the fact Phi and Emily have a battle of wills and a lot of scorching loving. Almost from page one, this book is fire-alarm smoking hot. The tension between these two keeps you turning the pages and wondering when it's going to boil over again. This book is full of lust, love, sex, drama and intrigue. The story-line is magical. The love triangle was exciting. If you are a romantic, you should definitely read this book. Happy Reading!
  • These aliens can invade me anytime!

    By Jai_byrd13
    Strangeways is a very quick read, so if you’re looking for a short, steamy story, this should do you for a couple of hours if you are a voracious reader like I am. With the only negative out of the way, this is a very sexy, but thought provoking story. It is set in a world where aliens have shown up out of nowhere, but oddly, everyone seems to be fine with this world-altering event like it’s an everyday occurrence as the aliens make themselves right at home. Thus begins the tale of Emily and Phi, a lowly waitress and an alien. I don’t want to spoil the story, as mentioned previously it’s short, but I do like the concepts in this novella. Not your usual invasion romance story. I would almost like to see more to this, but a snapshot of this particular world is kind of like watching burlesque, we don’t see much, but it really inspires the imagination as I love me a good setting/backstory/plot as much as I enjoy the sex. And like many other Addison Cain books, do expect the sexy times to be very, very sexy. Phi has some amazing anatomy that almost makes me wish his species was real. Or I could get a toy like that. To sum up, good book, but very short. But it is so nice it makes you want to read it twice!
  • Strange things are happening!

    By beautyguise
    Completely had no clue what to expect when starting this. Obviously with the title Strangeways, I knew it would be "strange" but it was so much more. I enjoyed this unique tale quite a bit. It's generally not what I dive into but it was a refreshing change. However, I do feel I am left a little wanting. This little novella was nearly not enough. I really hope this is expanded on, I would totally love more background and to see more of this alien race. As for everything else, the pace was perfect. This most certainly is a quick little weekend read.
  • Aliens the Cain way

    By BCarrill
    Cain surprises us with her new novel, an alien scifi romance. Although this is not the genre we generally associate Cain with, she has done a great job in this short, steamy, HEA story. This is a dystopian world where men are dying out and women live precarious, abused, over worked lives. Aliens have arrived on earth but no one knows for sure what they want, is it an invasion? or group of helpful benevolent saviors? Our heroine meets one of this new alien citizens at the dinner she works as a waitress. Our hero is an alien who is taken by her the first time he sees her at work. How would a relationship with an alien with unknown purpose and intentions work out? That's what you have to figure out by reading the book.
  • A novel alien short story

    By rysonsmom
    This is a short story by one of my favorite authors. The world building is incredible in the beginning and really grabs your attention. But then h’s free will is in question. Is it taken or does she just not remember. From there on out, the story starts to get vague and hazy in relation to the ?H and leaves a lot of stuff up in the air. I didn’t really feel like the story was finished when it ended. Almost like interest was lost by the author. But not sure if this was intentional as story was from h’s POV.
