No one is quite sure who launched the app at first, but it is wildly successful. Human women are as fascinated with alien warriors as warriors are with human women. A system is set up so that they can match and meet, either on Earth or on neutral planets by mutual agreement. Aside from a few minor incidents (dates going poorly, some xenophobia, a couple of people/ aliens going missing), it's a hit.

Anise, a young woman fresh out of college, gets signed up for the app by her meddling friends, and finds herself on a date with Silas, a dragon shifter warrior, who is unlike anyone she's ever met before. He's kind and thoughtful and considerate, and definitely the sort of person she could fall for. Too bad he's being hunted, and Anise is caught in the crossfire. Now Silas must protect himself and the woman he loves while hiding from his hunters. A seemingly impossible task....

I loved Silas, he was an absolute gem, I don't think, as a woman, I could possibly ask for any more from a man that what he offers Anise... of course that is apart from the people who are after him and want to kill him which then, of course, places her in danger. The story is packed full of adventure, passion and danger. The writing is excellent, the plot flows well and is engaging from the first page. I am very much looking forward to more of this series.

Interplanetary Dating!!! Ashley West writes a great Sci-fi story! This one is no exception. It is well written with likable characters and an enjoyable story line. Anise and Silas' story is a unique one involving an interplanetary dating app. He uses it to escape his past, while she uses it to break out of her safe life. Rules are broken and love ensues.

A book about Silas who is a dragon shifter and from a different planet. He meets Anise through a dating app called Galaxy Meet, Which is where you can meet aliens and date them. Silas is on the run from something he didnt do and chooses earth as his means of escape and meets the beautiful Anise on earth. She is everything he ever wanted, but can he keep her safe from those who after him? i really enjoyed this book, i like it how silas is there for Anise and protects and loves her so much. It has some real steamy and hot scenes which i extremely enjoyed. I love the characters.

I personally did not like this book. I honestly felt that there was way too much going on to really get into the story itself and I'm not a fan of books like that. So having said that, just because I didn't find it enjoyable to read, doesn't mean that you won't. Please read other reviews as well as the authors synopsis if that is how you choose your next read to see if this book is for you.

This was an very enjoyable read and completely different than any other book I’ve read read before. The storyline isn’t intriguing and characters well developed. I’m looking forward to seeing what’s next. When he first came to Earth, he’s running, but realizes he wants to pursue a relationship with the girl that brought him here. With a few twists and turns that had me on the edge of my seat, they get their HEA. I’m voluntarily reviewing an advanced reader copy of this book.

Anise is out with her friends from college one Friday night. She meets a guy and leaves with him. The next morning her friends show up at her place because no has heard from her and one thing they always set up was the texting to make sure everyone was safe. When she goes to the bathroom her friends decide to install an app on her cell and sign her up for GalaxyMeet. A few days later she gets a ping on her cell about getting a match. When she gets ahold of her friends she finds out they set her up. After investigating the app, their website, and all the FAQs available she sends a text to her match. Now no one knows where this app actually came from or who runs it but it is a big thing now. After Earth discovered there were actually aliens they became alien crazy. So someone (or maybe some alien) decided to make an app to match earth people to aliens. On another planet in another system, Silas is trying to survive. He has a target painted on his back for a crime he didn't commit. For years he has run and kept running to keep ahead of any bounty hunters or assassins.He's tired very tired and lonely. He talks to his friend Finn who suggests he sign up for the GalaxyMeet app and look for an earth woman. Since his one ticket out of the system went fizzle, joining this app would be a way for him to get away to a distant place. He signs and and a few days later gets word he's been matched. Soon after he gets a text. The date is set up by GalaxyMeet and Anise goes to an old sort of rundown building where she meets a creepy guy who takes her into the building and up to the roof. There a shuttle lands, and she meets Silas. Their first date is to a taco stand where she introduces him to tacos. At the end of the date he leaves her at her car and heads to the place Finn tells him to go. There he finds a hybrid, part human part alien, who runs the place like a motel. He gets Silas set up with a room and helps him wade through small stuff like changing his credits into earth dollars. On an outing to a grocery store and while he's trying to figure out what the orange stuff in a box is, he meets Anise again. As they talk and she gets her courage up to ask if he realizes he had caused her pain. He invites her on another date. They go to an aquarium this time. Then a museum. He kisses her and she gets all atwitter. He asks her on another and she decides to do a picnic. Their on the picnic Anise gets her courage up to ask him what they're doing? Silas is surprised to find that he wants to build a relationship.

Salis and anise were very entertaining to read. Salis is running from his past and assassins and anise is just trying to find a good guy. There were some twists you dont see coming and no cheating. Of course you get a hea and she leaves it open to continue the series with new characters. Very good plot and story line. Highly enjoyable I recieved an arc and voluntarily leave a honest review

Silas came to earth to hide from his past. When he meets Anise he knows that she is the one he wants. Anise hasn't been doing much with her social life and her friends have had enough about it. The sign her up for a dating app that matches you with someone from a different planet. Unsure about the whole dating someone different from her altogether Anise worries about doing it. However her friends talk her into it and she is glad when she meets Silas. Will Sila's past catch up to them? Will Anise be in danger by being with Silas? This is an amazing story that will have you on the edge of your seat until you are at the end. The chemistry between them is off the charts hot. This is a well written and very entertaining story. I would recommend it to any book lover. I voluntarily read and reviewed this book.

Anise is playing life a little to safe. Her friends think she needs to live a little. They sign her up for the new dating app where she can meet a man from another planet. Anise is a bit skeptical until she meets Silas. Silas on the run from his planet thinks Earth is far enough away he can finally relax. He finds that he enjoys Anise and would do anything to protect her. Can he protect her from his past? This book takes Sci-Fi and Romance and finds a great way to twist it together. It is very captivating. I found that I enjoyed it. The dragon sounded very attractive. Makes you wonder if it is truly possible to meet someone from another planent and if these Earth men are even worth it. LOL! The writing was easy to read and draws you in. It is a great book to get wrapped up in.

A read about aliens and a dating app that connects other beings with humans. This read about Silas, a dragon who is running for his life as mercenaries hunt him down because of a crime he did not commit. He joins the app to escape to Earth and chooses Anise, who’s friend’s signed her up w/o her knowledge. She agrees to have a date with Silas and as 1 date turns into more, the two become inseparable. But what happens when the mercenaries catch up to Silas and Anise is in the way. A good read with steam but I didn’t like the beginning at all when she brings a man home from the bar. I didn’t need to read that part and I did skip it, a simple he went home with her and left the next morning would have been sufficient and not all the details, since he wasn’t the one that she ends up my opinion. I did like the rest of the story after that chapter and I liked how these two had quite a few dates, getting to know each other. I really enjoyed Silas in his protector mode and I loved how she stuck by him and how there was not much drama between them. The story, plot and flow was great and the characters were amazing, if it wasn’t really the first bit, it would have been a higher star rating from me.

The newest craze, intergalactic dating. Annise’s friends sign her up for the dating app which pairs her with Silas. Sparks fly but Silas is on the run and this puts Annise in danger. Can he keep her safe? This is a fast-paced read with loads of drama and suspense. I really liked the characters and this story really has plenty of twists and turns not to mention a sweet side. A good read.

Interstellar dating app anyone? This was a fast, action packed, entertaining story from a brand new author. I hope to see more from Ashley West. The Dragon's Mate is about Anise and Silas who meet through the above mentioned dating app. Anise was entered in the app by well meaning friends who didn't tell her. She is matched with Silas who is a dragon warrior. Silas has had a hard life and since he's a warrior has a somewhat cold exterior. He's not so cold with her. There are things going on behind the scene with the dating app. But it adds to the development of Anise and Silas's relationship. Ashley wrote this story well. You have action, drama, suspense, funny moments as you picture what is being written, passion and steam - of course. I can't wait to read another story by Ms. West. So happy she found her way to Barnes & Noble! I read an advanced copy and I leave my voluntary and honest review.

I enjoy a good paranormal romance and this one did not disappoint. This is Silas and Annise's story there is plenty going on in this book and it pulled me right in I just loved the chemistry between these two a super read I really enjoyed it

I received an ARC of this book and leaving a voluntary review. You would have thought with how long Silas had been ruining he should have figured out how they were tracking him. Anise had some good friends even though they let her go home with strange men. But I really want to know what’s going on with the dating service. This book had action and humor and I enjoyed reading it.
