What would you do if an alien materialized in your living room and told you he was your leader?
Plump Diana is ironing her underwear when the hottest blue babe in all of the galaxy appears in her living room. Did she forget to mention he was naked? Abducted, decontaminated, and dressed like a harem girl, she’s been chosen to become his mate.
Kor asked his ancestors to find him a biddable, docile mate. Instead they found him Diana--a curvy, argumentative earthling who sets his pulse pounding and his loins on fire. He might be an alien who doesn't understand the meaning of love, but he sure knows what he feels is more than lust.
Eve Langlais is great at characterization. Diana calls herself a ‘plumper’ and figures a worthwhile man will never desire her. Her last boyfriend had a fetish for chubby girls and wouldn’t be seen with her in public. The entire experience tore down her confidence.
When a hot and buff alien man appears in her livingroom, insisting he wanted her for a life mate, she thinks she is dreaming. He transports them to his spacecraft and they begin the long journey to his home planet. Diana fights her abduction, but also knows she has nothing to leave behind on Earth.
Diana is hilarious! I could read about her thoughts all day and enjoy every minute of it. It was the humor and the characters that made this book stand out for me. Well, the sexy blue alien on the cover helped.
The relationship developed slowly, as Diana was cautious with Kor. Once things started rolling, there were plenty of spicy sex scenes. You can’t help but love Kor. He’s controlled, logical and eager to please his mate. Though he wishes his new woman was a little more cooperative, he soon learns what love is.
Once they arrive on Kor’s planet, the pace of the story slowed somewhat, but picked up again in the last quarter.
For a funny, touching, romance with a stud of an alien and a reluctant heroine, this is the book for you. I highly recommend Alien Mate, and can’t wait for more work by this talented author.
