Adorkably Hesitant Hero!
The following ratings are out of 5:
World building: 🪐🪐🪐🪐🪐
Character development: 🤖🙄👽🤤👾
The heroine: Lucy – a curvy girl on an alien world. Lucy loves to cook and has a crush on a Massakah male named Rektar. She loves to cook and brings him food every day.
The Hero: Rektar – a massive blue straight-laced military alien. He works on Risda’s Port Authority. Rektar has some issues from his past and doesn’t think he can get a woman, especially one as pretty as Lucy. He is awkward, and endearing and has no clue she has been flirting with him. He has a crush on her but thinks she is just lonely and wants company.
The Story: Most of the people on Risda are unfriendly, especially towards the Mesakkah since Mesakkah law is so strict and the people don’t look to kindly on the people that enforce the law in any way. Before arriving on Risda, Rektar and his co-worker went through all sorts of training on how to deal with humans and other aliens who were abducted from Earth and spent time as captives or slaves. So he enacts a lot of the training tips he learned. Things like not getting too close or looming over them.
I liked this one from the start. Rektar was in the military since he was young and never spent much time around females so his reactions to Lucy were so delightful. Lucy thinks Rektar is a clueless flirt. The story was cute from the start.
