Special Agent Beth August is sent to investigate an object of mysterious origins. What she uncovers could send the world into an orgy of apocalyptic proportions.

A strange object of alien origin has been found and the Department of Ufology has sent its top agent, Beth August, to investigate. Once there, she meets Brad Davis, a handsome security guard with a secret of his own. Together they both succumb to and struggle against the object’s aphrodisiac powers, eventually finding themselves in a race to prevent the world from exploding into sexual anarchy, even as the two of them grapple to understand how much of their own mutual attraction is due to an unexplained supernatural energy and how much is the more natural chemistry of two people falling in love.


Review:  Readers of paranormal romance expect their imaginations to be stretched. Add a touch of erotica, and there’s bound to be a lot of crazy action going on.

Author E.G. Wiser pushes the boundaries of the genre with Closest Encounter. As a “Sexy Snax,” the story’s goal is to be like a woman’s skirt: long enough to cover the subject, short enough to be interesting.

I have to say the storyline itself wasn’t that compelling. According to the story blurb, two people meet while investigating a mysterious object with aphrodisiac powers. What drew my attention was the author’s writing style. Not only is there plenty of humor and spiciness, but the delivery really adds to the appeal.

There’s definitely plenty of chemistry between Beth and Brad. While it may be attributed to the object, the question is how much of it is real. From start to finish, there’s plenty of heat to go around, but not enough substance to keep me satisfied.
