At the end of his obligated commitment to the Space Service, Frey Berger decides to stay on Earth to further experience human emotions rather than return to Ginnun where his intended has already mated with another. Looking for real love and someone to accept him for what he is, Frey enlists in Madame Evangeline’s popular dating service. Although he does not understand the concept of a one-night stand, he hopes to find his perfect mate.
Carrie Cooper’s husband divorced her for someone who could provide him with children, leaving her with little self-confidence and no desire to let a man hurt her again. Her best friend convinces her to join a dating service, claiming Carrie needs to get laid, while not winding up with a broken heart since her date requires no commitment after the night is over.
Although several misunderstandings nearly derail them before the date has even begun, Carrie and Frey end up becoming closer than they ever believed possible. Still, Frey will need to convince Carrie that her perfect mate isn’t human at all, and that one night can lead to a forever love.
I thought this book was sweet, even though it was a quick read. I really liked Frey and Carries characters.
Carrie is recovering from a bad divorce, and with her job as a nurse she has no time to meet a man using conventional methods. Carrie's best friend Tamara convinces her to use a dating service to go out and have a little fun. Carrie is sceptical but decides to give it a try. When she sees Frey's profile picture Carrie is instantly attracted, and agrees to a date.
Frey has finished his tour with the space service, and refuses to leave earth for his home planet. Where Frey is from emotion is shunned, and he refuses to go back to that existence. It also doesn't help that his intended mate has mated with his best friend, so he really sees no reason to return there. Frey decides to use a dating service to find a mate that he can express his feelings for, and that will except his true alien nature. He chooses Carrie, and sets out to make her his.
Frey is nothing Carrie ever experienced before, but she feels a connection with him, and is able to except his alien nature. The story moves on pretty quickly after that, and the couple fall in love, and share some serious alien love.
I like sci fi romances, and this one did not disappoint. I really got a feel for the characters, and thought the story was well written. The author got her point across, and I was satisfied with the ending. As far as the story goes, it was ok for me. I would pick up another book by this author if I had the opportunity.
