A continuation from the Alien Mate series, the Dakonian Alien Mail Order Brides series proves to be just as entertaining! This go-around, the aliens come to Earth to find prospective mates, and the learning curve is steep. It was a quick read, so it's a bit of a crash course in alien and human interactions on our home turf. I am excited to see where this series goes!
Lexi Sutterman is an eternal disgrace to her well-to-do family. Working as a pastry chef in her own business, Your Just Desserts, she has no degree, no letters to sit by her name, and no husband at her side. When her younger sister becomes engaged and her mother refuses to let her bake the cake, Lexi decides she's had enough. She's going to bring a +1, and with luck, it will be a purple, tentacled alien, courtesy of the Intergalactic Dating Agency. Darak from Dakon may not be purple or tentacled, but he is what Lexi gets. With the horns on his head twitching, he knows Lexi is his mate, but it will take some time to convince her of that. In the meantime, he will stay be her side at the wedding and prove to her that he's the mate she needs.
Lexi was such a sweetie, showing genuine kindness towards Darak and completely unfazed by his appearance from the start. She was really patient with him as he learned the ways of living on Earth, and I appreciated that she took his feelings into consideration once she met him. Darak was a wonderful partner for her, completely supportive and protective of her. Even when he had reason to complain about her awful mother, he remained silent and respectful, hoping not to upset her. It was a gentle relationship between the two of them, and their romance grew quickly.
The next book is coming out soon, and I can't wait to learn more about Aton, the Dakon who will be the next Dakon to arrive on Earth.
