The third and final book of the Dakonian Alien Mail Order Brides series was one I thought would be hilarious after encountering this romance pair in the earlier book. Fraternization rules were never flaunted so reluctantly but thoroughly. Fun end to the series.
Caid is the last in a spin-off trilogy and is part of a larger group of loosely tied books in the Intergalactic Dating Agency. It is better in order with the other Dakonian Alien Mail Order Brides books, but could be read standalone in a pinch.
Jessie is one of the matchmakers working for the Intergalactic Dating Agency. She lives for her job and experiences romance vicariously with each match she makes. Told all her life that she’s not that pretty and that she’s boring, she believes it so her job is all she’s got. And that’s why the arrogant Dakonian who has turned aside from all her matches to flirt with her and tell her false things about how he wants to be with her and she is pretty really gets her steamed. Caid’s unmatched status is a blot on her otherwise perfect record and the regional boss has noticed. An ultimatum ensues and Jessie gets desperate. Too bad she’s fallen for the big jerk and can’t stand the idea that she will have her satisfying job, but at the cost of her heart.
Caid was a quick enjoyable read. Its short and jumps right into the heart of the romance conflict. Caid knows Jessie is his mate. He’s delighted with her and even enjoys her irritation at his attempts to woo her with the things he’s learned from the dating guide he found in an antique store. Jessie can’t see past her own ugly thoughts about herself or believe in Caid’s sincerity. It was so sad. People can be so cruel with their words and they do so much damage. Caid never gives up on her no matter how many women she throws at him and he honorably won’t take advantage of her in a drunk moment.
That surprise twist in the end was great. Right when I was thinking there wasn’t enough conflict in the story; there it was.
So, the series ends leaving me with some more chuckles and smiles for the latest sexy hot Dakonian to find his mate and a woman to learn she’s beautiful and attractive to the guy meant to be hers. Those who enjoy light and spicy sci-fi romance should give this book/series a try.
My thanks to the author for the opportunity to read this book in exchange for an honest review.
