Water World Warrior (TerraMates #1) by Lisa Lace

Why would I want to be married to an alien?

I should not have applied to TerraMates. The idea was crazy. I'm a young woman, in the prime of my life. 

But I was desperate. 

When I landed on another world, his appearance intrigued me. He dripped sexuality and moved like an animal. We have three days together before he sets sail without me. Am I going to escape or submit to my desires? 

4 out of 5 Stars

Lately I've been reading a lot of dark mafia romances. So Water World Warrior provided me with the perfect break from all that. It's a fun light read with romance and adventure.

Ashlyn takes care of three younger brothers. One of her brothers gets into a bad situation by owing a dangerous group a lot of money. To keep her family safe, Ash signs up for TerraMates. TerraMates matches human women to wealthy alien men. Ash plans on using the money paid by TerraMates to get rid of the debt. 

Nat is a scientist. As water levels continue to increase, he wants to create a solution so that people do not have to leave their homes and become refugees. But because of the corruption in his world, he is a wanted man due to pirating. He's not a bad pirate. He makes sure the goods go to the refugees. 

When he gets caught in hot water, he lies and tells the officials that he's taking a short cut to pick up his fiance. The officials tell him to show proof of marriage at a later time, and this leads Nat to sign up for TerraMates.

I really enjoyed the relationship between the characters. It's a fast and light read. I've also listened to parts of the audiobook, and I thought it was pretty good.
