APC PUBLISHER: Cara Bristol RELEASED: May 15, 2018 GENRE: sci-fi, romance LENGTH: 248 pages FORMAT: ebook
How insane is it to marry an alien as a publicity stunt?
I’m Sunny Weathers. You probably recognize me from my reality show, Sunny Weathers Excellent Adventures. I’ve had to perform a lot of crazy stunts in my career but this one takes the cake! The producers are sending me to another planet to become an alien’s mail order bride. I’m not allowed to tell anybody it’s a put-on, and as soon my contract is up, I’ll be leaving planet Dakon. Unfortunately, I hadn’t counted on my attraction to Mr. Tall, “Darq” and Handsome…
I’m Darq. The moment I laid eyes on the female with pretty mud-colored hair and sunny smile, I knew she was mine. Competition for females is fierce, and I was determined to claim a mate from the latest shipment from Earth so I broke the rules. If anyone finds out, my own brother would banish me to the icy wilderness, and I’d lose my mate. I will do anything to keep her… FOUR BOUNDLESS STARS
I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.
It did take me a bit to get into this one. There are few topics that will immediately turn me off to a book. One being anything to do with reality TV. Yes, I am one of the few who doesn’t worship all things TV. In Alien Attraction, Sunny is forced to be a mail-order bride for her TV show. She doesn’t want to be there and doesn’t want to have any type of feeling for Draq since she plans on leaving in a year. But the sparks fly the second they look eyes. Draq like all males on his planet is desperate for a bride. He breaks the rules and gets his through dishonesty. I liked Draq, but I didn’t like this aspect of him. He did prove himself honorable in the end, but it was a rough start. The story is full of humor, a bit of danger, a lot of romance and overall a really easy read to pass the time. I like where the series is heading and look forward to continuing.
