The fireworks were visible from across the room. Braxx found his fated mate, but the little spitfire wants nothing to do with him… until he played by a new set of rules. I met both Braxx and Holly in the last book and knew we were in for some sparks before this pair found their way to love. Just as good as the house’s best entree.
Braxx is the sixth in the Dakonian Alien Mail Order Brides series of standalones that do have a connection to previous stories in the series and the previous Alien Mates series.
Braxx’s brother, Kord, had to work hard to get his mate to accept him and he would do the same. He has no intentions of giving up on Holly, but after a year of trying to court her and her banning him from the barbecue restaurant where she works, he has to face the fact that he can’t make her like him. But, then his brother, sister in law, and a cute, squalling little baby niece give him the chance he needs.
Holly has been resisting Braxx for so long- he reminded her of her smarmy, unloyal ex, from the first big smile and show of confidence. But, her victory in getting him to leave her be feels hollow when he stops coming to the restaurant and now seems content to be just friends right when she discovers that he’s vulnerable, sweet, and generous the way he helps at an elementary school, joins a big brother mentoring program with a foster kid, and works when he doesn’t have to. Barb tried to get her to give him a chance and now it’s too late, right?
This was another heartwarming story wrapped in a sexy sci-fi romance. Braxx came to earth wanting simply to find his own mate and maybe have a chance at a family since his chances of that were not good back on his home planet He’s unpretentious, honest, and prefers simple pleasures. What was Holly thinking, you ask? Well, she had a bad experience with her ex and carries a secret sorrow that she thinks would keep any male from wanting her so she resists any show of interest so she can’t be hurt again. It was a case of her seeing so clearly what was good for Barb and Kord, but unable to see her own great opportunity with Braxx even with Barb’s coaxing. It was fun to see the antics Braxx went to in winning her over and the adorable way he took up with a foster child and learned to give him care and love rather than just wallow because Holly was giving him a run for his money.
Dare I hope that intriguing Alor might get his story or even that sweethearted Kaylie who appeared briefly.
I love these and do not hesitate to recommend them for those looking for sexy, light sci-fi romance with heart.
My thanks to the author for providing the book to read in exchange for an honest review.
