I wasn't sure whether or not I was going to read this book. Usually if I'm iffy about a book blurb, I skip the book, but I decided to give this one a chance. Safe to say, I'm glad I did. This was an interesting book. It's a bit of a sci-fi, mystery, spy, rough em up, forgiveness tale all in one. It's an odd combo of themes and genres and while it works most of the time, there are parts that don't jive as well. I would recommend this book, especially because it's unusual. While it's not a rarity, it is a decent sci-fi read, which are rarer than most other genres of m/m romances. And Lark and Derek have a very unusual personal relationship, as well as very hot sex, which adds to the story. There is a second book that starts with them in very different positions than in this book, so I can't wait to read on and learn more about these characters and their world.
