APC PUBLISHER: Cara Bristol RELEASED: October 22, 2018 GENRE: scifi, romance LENGTH: 176 pages FORMAT: ebook
For an alien and a human girl, all’s fair in love and courtship…
Attorney Toni Sutterman is on the fast-track, her success all but an open-and-shut case when she realizes she lacks what’s really important: true love. With marriage-minded men in short supply on planet Earth, she joins the Intergalactic Dating Agency hoping to find a good match with an extraterrestrial. When her alien mate finally arrives, he proves beyond all doubt to be the man of her dreams: tall, sexy, romantic, and totally devoted to her. So what if there’s a bit of gray area about how he actually got here?
Aton of planet Dakon doesn’t mean to pull a fast one. He has every intent to play by the rules until false accusations get him escorted from the spaceship just before it blasts off. Neither spurious allegations nor the vastness of space will keep him from his mate, so he makes his own way to Earth to claim the female he was promised. As soon as he sees Toni, he recognizes her as his Fated mate. Confident he’s acted in good faith, he focuses on courting her and beginning their life together.
But when a rival discovers the truth and administers some rough justice, will Toni be willing to break the rules and become Aton’s partner in crime to save their future…or will she play by the book? FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS
I voluntarily received a copy of this novel for review all thoughts and opinions are my own. This is the story of Toni Sutterman who we meet in book one of this series, Darak. This book can be read as standalone however much of what happens at the end of Darak effects Aton so I think you would be better served to read them in order. When Toni sees the happiness that an alien has brought her sister, she decides to sign up for Intergalactic Dating Agency and look for true love from the stars for herself. She doesn’t want to settle for the life her mother wants for her; she wants passion and love. Aton will do anything to get to is fated mate. Breaking the rules doesn’t seem like that big of a deal. But when an enemy of Toni’s discovers what he has done, Aton not following the rules may cost him everything. I loved this story. Like Darak, it was super cute with just the right amount of humor, romance and drama. I found myself laughing out loud many times but even better; I think I smiled throughout most of the book. I love the Dakonians, and I would like to know where mine is!
