Xixan and Nikki: A SciFi Enemies to Lovers Romance (Perinqual Galaxy Aliens Book 1) Kindle Edition
Xixan is a blue, bad ass ballsy alien. Nikki is a petite, pretty, perfect human. It's not meant to work - but it just does!
After a tragic accident claimed the lives of her son and husband, Nikki thought life couldn't get any worse.
That was until she's abducted by a group of vile Taraquets - short rodent faced aliens with blood-red evil eyes.
But then she's auctioned off along with nine other human females on an unknown planet.
A band of horny Brizzoks win the bid for her in a human auction, but then run into an 8ft blue Cagodian named Xixan on route with their new possession.
The Cagodian kills the Brizzoks in self-defence but finds he is now the protector of the small fragile female until he can get her back safely to Federation Headquarters.
Will Nikki ever see Earth again? Will she want to? Xixan is a very accommodating alien host!

Now that I've finished it, I have a few things on my mind. This book wasn't bad, but neither was it very good. It was pretty tropey and boring. If it had been a longer novel, I probably would've DNF'd it because there's only so much disbelief I can suspend. I get that this is a sci-fi romance, but if the author is going to make up an alien world with completely different words for time and body parts, how can the hero still be wearing pants, but not know what underwear is? Or how can the heroine (who was apprently a botanist) acknowledge she's on a planet with completely alien flora and yet not hesitate whatsoever to shove plant leaves into her mouth to chew?
The tropes (so many of them) were pretty packed in there: forced proximity, alien auction, claiming mates... it's all kind of jumbled together and made to fit as best as it can.
It's not quite "read at your own risk" but there it is.
It gets four stars because the writer's world building, character development, and plot building skills are great. It plops you into a universe of human-like and not so human-like aliens armed with strange new weapons, fighting predatory monsters to survive. The motivation and motivations of the characters are mostly believable. The story moves at a fast pace, and -- as long as you can accept the insta-lust/insta-love trope -- arrives at a satisfactory HEA for Xixan the alien and Nikki his human mate. Altogether, it was interesting enough to convince me to buy the second title in the series, "Samantha."
