Nighttime Promises (Nighttime Wishes #3) by M.A. Church

 Be careful what you wish for...

The first time Daroshi spotted Bryan, the Maz’Rarian warrior knew he wanted the small town sheriff as his mate. Things have been going downhill since. Daroshi doesn’t have experience dealing with humans, especially a very unhappy human male who’s just had his well-planned life jerked out from under him. Little does Daroshi know the changes Bryan will insist be made to help him adjust. But he also never dreamed someone would actually try to kill his mate.

The shocks just keep coming for Sheriff Bryan Coltrane. Finding out aliens exist was bad enough. Finding himself mated to one was definitely not on his to-do list. Wait, what? Did someone say tentacles? And if that’s not enough, a killer tried to poison him. Added to his misery, now he’s on his way to another planet—a planet that he hates on sight. How’s he supposed to survive in such a cold, ugly industrialized world? Can you take the country out of the boy without killing his spirit?

As Bryan struggles to adapt, a killer plots to end his new life... before it even begins.
This is book three in the series and you must read in order.

This one again is about Bryan and Daroshi although Shawn and Ziang do play a role in the story. We’ve made it through space, the poising and now about to land on their new plant and home. Once Bryan and Shawn see the new planet they are heart sick to see it’s as bland as the ship, browns, grays, no color. But they are determined to make the best of it. Once Bryan and Daroshi get to Daroshi home and settle into the new life it becomes obvious that Bryan is not happy, so they decide to go on a hunting trip were Bryan is the prey. Little do they know that someone else will be hunting him as well?

This book is all about moving the story along. Getting Bryan settled, seeing if this will work, getting to know each other. And it’s a good story. Couple of twists which are predictable but still very well written and the sexual encounters are smoking hot. My big issue’s with this one is that we spent several pages in the beginning and then again later on rehashing the first two books.  Now, I have to admit that I don’t know the time gap between releases, but these books aren’t that long. People can skim read to catch up if they have forgotten obvious plot points? Why waste valuable page space? give us more story, please.  Also something that bugged me throughout the book, and I don’t normally bring up covers but I LOVE covers and will buy a book just based on it. On both the second and third book, we show Bryan hairless but clearly by the description he is a hairy guy. This really bothers me; do we just not care enough to get the cover and the character to match? This time we aren’t left with a cliffy but enough of an open that we will probably see another couple of books in the series.
