Review: Sixx by Cara Bristol

Book Description

Single alien dad needs a mate with some moxie.

Software developer Moxie Maguire has a BIG dream—save enough money to start her own video game company. That’s why she logs fourteen hours days working for an obnoxious boss. But when life seems to be passing her by, she sets another goal—meet Mr. Right, a man who can support her dream. She joins the Intergalactic Dating Agency and is matched with a hot and horned alien named…Sixx. Sexy as heck, a good listener, family-oriented—he’s the perfect man to share a life with.

If only that life was on Earth.

Sixx has a dream, too. Find a mate, settle down, and raise kits. With females in short supply on his planet, this single dad heads for Earth to get a female and get back to Dakon and his young son. The instant he meets Moxie, he recognizes she’s his Fated Mate. They’re meant to be together.

But he won’t abandon his child. And, unfortunately, his planet has even fewer computers than females. One for the entire planet, to be exact.

Will two Fated Mates have to part? Or can they find a way to work it out?

My Review

Moxxie is a game designer and since she spends most of her time at work and doesn't spend a lot of time going out, she decides to sign up at the Intergalactic Dating Agency.  

Sixx had been in a relationship on his planet that produced a child but his ex left him for someone else and since Dakonians usually mate for life, there was no chance that another female would consider him now. So he decides to come to Earth and be matched with a female that will come back to Dakon with him.

They seem to hit it off right from the start which is good but things get awkward when she finds out he wants her to come back to his planet. Their dates kept getting interrupted by her boss constantly calling her. When weird things start happening at work and she keeps finding herself in danger, it's Sixx that comes to her rescue. But even though she and Sixx hit it off really well when they meet and get to know one another, Sixx can't stay on Earth because he has a son back on Dakon. With only one computer on Dakon, Moxie can't see herself living there when she wants to be a game designer.

I really liked Sixx, he's such a great guy so I was sad when it looked like things weren't going to work out for them. But thankfully they do come to a compromise and they find a way to make things work. I can't imagine going to another planet to live but Earth women keep jumping at the chance to go there even though it's really cold. The guys are hot and nice so they do have great reasons to take the chance. 

This was a fun story with a bit of a mystery as to what was going on at her work that put her in danger. 

I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.
