Dekkir by Lara Larue ❤️ Review, Book Blitz & Gift Card GIVEAWAY ❤️ (Sci-Fi Romance)

This Alien Warrior will fight—kill—any who dare attempt to take his female.

Dekkir, war chief and military leader has found his mate…a human. She is tiny contrasted to his hulking size, but her luscious curves and delectable scent call out to his heart like no other.

Anthropologist Grace was sent by Earth Military Command to act as emissary to Dekkir’s planet. Her mission was clear: make contact and live among the aliens recording details on their culture and world. The job should’ve been simple but like the story of her life sh*t got complicated fast. Now she has a hot alpha alien warrior trying to claim her like some caveman. WTH?

Adding to the chaos of her life, she’s attacked by her own military command. Dekkir is prepared to do whatever it takes to keep her safe. Can they survive the coming battles? Or will they die before he can claim his mate?

Dekkir is the first book in the Galaxy Alien Warriors series, it features steamy sex, thrilling battles, and plenty of romance. All books in this rock-hard science fiction series can be read as standalones, there are no cliffhangers, and happily ever afters are guaranteed!

Hotness + Sci-Fi + Action/Adventure + Suspense = Dekkir

This book was incredibly well-written. The story flowed smoothly and I was on the edge of my seat for most of the book, dying to know what happened next!

Equal parts sci-fi romance, suspense, action/adventure, and smoking hotness, all balanced perfectly throughout. Add to that some plot twists I never saw coming and I got one heck of a story!

"Finding true mates" is a favorite topic of mine, and this was certainly one of those stories! But, this was unlike any I have read because Grace wanted absolutely nothing to do with Dekkir! (She was pretty funny about it, too) This unexpected element of outright rejection really made this book stand out.

The ending was fantastic, a HUGE Happily Ever After, and I hope I get to catch up with Grace and Dekkir in subsequent books.

I am 100% on board with Lara and this series, and I'm ANXIOUSLY awaiting the next book!!!

(I received a copy of this book in consideration for an honest review)

I smoothed his tangled hair back from his brow, and gentle warmth swelled inside me. Perhaps the bond was not completed, but I could feel it now. And it was time for me to do something about it.
I took off my boots and settled on the bed with him. After a moment, he stirred, and his eyes opened.
He sat up, startled to see me leaning over him, and then stared at my face. “Your eyes,” he murmured. “What have you done?”
“What I knew had to be done. Anything else wouldn’t have been fair to either of us.”
I laid a finger on his lips and then moved forward and put my arms around him. It was like embracing a sun-warmed statue. There was nothing soft about him but his skin and hair. I ran my hands over his muscled back through his tunic, eagerly mapping the contours of his body with my fingertips. He shuddered, his eyes hooding again, but held himself still, as if wary of frightening me off. I reassured him the best way I could think of, leaning up and pressing my lips to his.
He caught me in his arms, pulling me against him hungrily. The kiss ignited suddenly as we clung to each other, intensifying until my lips stung, stealing our breaths until we finally had to lean back from each other just to catch them.
“I… do not wish to hurt you,” he murmured. I could feel his muscles tighten with restrained strength as he held me.
I smiled. “You’ve bled for me twice, Dekkir,” I purred as I ran the back of my hand down his cheek. “I’m not worried about you hurting me in any way I wouldn’t like.”
