About the book (from Goodreads)

What would you do if an alien materialized in your living room and told you he was your leader?   

Plump Diana is ironing her underwear when the hottest blue babe in all of the galaxy appears in her living room. Did she forget to mention he was naked? Abducted, decontaminated, and dressed like a harem girl, she’s been chosen to become his mate. 

Kor asked his ancestors to find him a biddable, docile mate. Instead they found him Diana--a curvy, argumentative earthling who sets his pulse pounding and his loins on fire. He might be an alien who doesn't understand the meaning of love, but he sure knows what he feels is more than lust.

My review

Diana is plumper than you average girl, her last boyfriend had a fetish about her size but refused to be seen in public with her.  Then when she’s ironing in her underwear while wearing her worst outfit a sexy naked man appears in her living room and announces her has come to be her leader - which it turns out means her mate.  Oh, and he’s blue!

Kidnapped onto Kor’s spaceship Diana begins her journey to his planet and her new life, not that she’s very happy about it at first.  She eventually falls I love with Kor (no spoiler there, it’s a romance with an HEA so we expect that!)  and finds although he’s an alien he is not much different to her.  

Kor is surprised to find his mate does not simply accept her fate, instead she is argumentative and difficult, but he finds himself falling in love with her anyway!  He loves her body, he is very happy he wasn’t given a too slim mate like some.  

Kor is everything we look for in a sexy hero, he’s strong, good looking and an excellent lover.  He’s blue but otherwise very human like so we can easily relate to him.  His language has no word for love in it and he does not understand what he feels for Diana, he dare not yell anyone on his planet in case he is mentally ill and has his precious and rare mate taken away from him. 

I really liked the way plump is seen as the ideal in Kor’s world, it makes a change to the usual beautiful, tall or athletic heroine usually found.  Thankfully she is not a pushover, I was very happy to see Diana stand up to Kor and even more so that he actually seemed to like it!

The world created by Eve Langalis for Kor’s home planet is very similar to ours, yet more advanced in technology and no longer using water to wash, cleansing is done at a molecular level and has an unexpected side effect, read the book to see what I mean!  The fate of Kor’s people’s women was very sad and gave the reader an instant way to sympathise with the actions of Kor when he took Diana.

I enjoyed Alien Mate and would recommend it to anyone who likes erotic romance with a bit of Sci-Fi thrown in.  I will definitely be reading the follow up book Alien Mate 2.
