|What a great read! I have to go back and read the first book in this series now, because, as is usual for me, I started with book 2 in the series. It’s an interesting space/future world set up. m/m vs m/f romance doesn’t seem to be an issue at all in this world, which was interesting and nice.
I was a bit nervous that the story would include a man who had been forced into prostitution. That’s a touchy subject and not one to be made light of. I thought the repercussions of the forced prostitution were handled ok. My thought is that there would be bigger after effects, but it wasn’t totally ignored, so I’m good with that. I’m a sucker for unintentional aphrodisiac stories, so that part really worked for me.
I thought Killian and Neith’s relationship was sweet. I enjoyed the secondary characters, too. After reading the interaction between the captain and the pilot (main characters from the first book) I have to go back and read that one. A caution – Killian has an accent. You know, the kind where you don’t say any of the “g”s in “ing” words. That bugged me a bit. I know it really drives some people bonkers. But after a while his endearment for Neith (li’l bit) stopped being annoying and ended up being really sweet.
This was a fun read I’d recommend to people who enjoy sci/fi space romance.
