Just like with each of Annie's books, I was pulled into the story from word one and craving more by The End. I really enjoyed reading Lily. She was a human thrown into a weird situation and she made the best of it. At the same time, she never strayed from the stubborn, clever and hilariously sarcastic person she truly was. Trace was the perfect match for Lily because, while he was very protective of her and wanted nothing more than her safety, he understood her nature and worked together WITH her instead of trying to control or limit her. I also met Hack and Crypto, who I assume will get their own stories, and I could not be more excited! Each has quite the personality and I can't wait to read how they find their mates. Though Trace and Lily get their Happily Ever After, the underlying mystery of the story is unresolved. I wouldn't necessarily call this a "cliffhanger," but just know that not all loose ends are tired up by the end. Can't wait for more!!! (I was given this book in consideration of my honest thoughts)

    This was a fun story. I liked that the hero and heroine were equal partners working together. Lilly is a reporter investigating human trafficking. Her leads have brought her to the Cosmos Resort. Trace is an undercover alien investigating the same. Suspicious of each other at first, they team up to try to figure out the mystery. A fun, fast-paced, light read.

    Trace is the first book in the Cosmos Alien Mail Order Brides series, a new addition to the Intergalactic Dating Agency universe! Lily has traveled undercover to an exclusive island to investigate the disappearance of several men and women, but to everyone else, she’s looking for a rich husband. She’s shocked when she realizes that aliens exist, but when she keeps stumbling into danger, will she be able to trust Trace? I really enjoyed this book, as it really takes you on an adventure! There’s m Trace is the first book in the Cosmos Alien Mail Order Brides series, a new addition to the Intergalactic Dating Agency universe! Lily has traveled undercover to an exclusive island to investigate the disappearance of several men and women, but to everyone else, she’s looking for a rich husband. She’s shocked when she realizes that aliens exist, but when she keeps stumbling into danger, will she be able to trust Trace? I really enjoyed this book, as it really takes you on an adventure! There’s mishaps, there’s an element of danger, not knowing who Lily can trust, and I loved the connection that forms between Lily and Trace! Lily is brave, in a little over her head, but she keeps her cool (mostly), and I love that she uses her head when she gets into trouble. Smart, beautiful, and having similar interests as himself, Trace can’t resist Lily! Trace was fun because he wanted to keep Lily safe, wanted to value her independence, was fascinated by her analytical mind, and I liked his connection with his men. I liked that not only were these males aliens, but they also had technology that made them unique. I loved that Lily had no idea that aliens existed and I giggled at some of the issues that came from that. There’s passion, intrigue, connection, and I loved flipping through these pages! I really enjoyed reading this book and look forward to what the next book will bring!

    I had fun reading Trace. It was a storyline that I certainly wasn’t expecting when I picked it up. I was pleasantly surprised.

But in the end... URGH!! Lily’s story wasn’t a cliff hanger as she got her HEA. I felt like I wasn’t at the end since there was more that need resolution for me. I still had questions. Maybe I need to be the reporter. Either way, bring on the next story! 4 1/2 stars!

    Lily has gone undercover to track down a slew of women who have disappeared into an alien slave market. she bit off more than she bargained for though! The Cosmos resort is a way for relationship/mate minded Earthlings and Aliens to meet and see if they could have a HEA. It would also be a great cover for a human slavery ring! The IIA has sent Trace and his team undercover as a wealty playboy alien and his entourage to see if there are any truths to the rumours.

I was a bit confused by the two sub or series titles for this book — Cosmos Alien Mail Order Bride and Intergalactic Dating Agency — since it had nothing to do with mail order brides and only indirectly the intergalactic dating agency. The story actually begins with Lily, who is investigating the apparent disappearance of a number of contestants from the beauty pageant circuit. She's afraid it is some sort of sex trafficking ring, but the truth is much more complicated and sinister. Lily comes across overall as a very put-together, intelligent, resourceful individual. But then there are a couple of times when she comes completley unglued that just seem totally out of character for her. Trace is approaching the mystery from an entirely different perspective, his team having been made aware of human females being sold on the intergalactic black market. The truth is not exactly what they were expecting to find. Trace is a seasoned professional, good at his job, and with an inspiring repoire with his team. He also comes across as a total sweetheart, at least where Lily is concerned; his main focus is keeping her safe and getting her to accept him. The main peripherary characters, Trace's fellow agents Hack and Crypto, are both interesting characters in their own right. I was happy to hear that Hack's will be the next story in the series, and I assume that Crypto's will follow. There is just enough intrigue and perceived danger in the tale to keep things interesting, but not enough to take away too much from the light, happy feel of the book. The main mystery of the tale is somewhat explained, but not entirely solved, by the end of the book. It doesn't end on a cliffhanger by any means, but definitely with more to be explained. If I didn't know this was the first in a series then I'd have been upset, but as it is I just can hardly wait for the next fun installment. I received an eBook copy of this title from the author, and have willingly provided an honest review.

    Fun Alien Mystery/Romance!! Lily is chasing a big news story. Trace is an alien investigating missing humans. Cosmos Dating Agency is in the middle somehow, and their island is not subject to human law. No one is what they seem, yet there is an undeniable attraction. When the truth is revealed will the attraction be real?!? *** I am voluntarily leaving my honest review of this book ***

    Well written fast paced story has me wanting more This was such a great read! I really enjoyed the humour, the banter and the mystery that they were all working to solve - just not together, initially. That sure changed when Trace and Lilly acknowledged, not only their skills, but also their chemistry. Action, mystery, humour and a fab romance fill they pages of this book to the brim and I loved it

    Resorts, aliens and a story worth getting. A wonderful and fun start to a new series. When investigating for a new story Lily doesn't expect to find out aliens are actually real and when Agent Trace is sent to investigate the same thing he doesn't expect to find love. Lots going on in this story but WOW what a read! The characters are all great and it's a great introduction to them. I can't wait for the next book to find out what happens next.

    Humans being kidnapped, an island used for a dating agency, and aliens everywhere. Lily is investigating what she suspects is a slave trafficking ring, only to discover an alien dating island. I loved Trace and Lily, they are both strong characters. Both working hard to protect. Whilst the book ends on a small cliffhanger I loved every second.
