I'll write as proper a review as I can in a bit, but first allow Spongebob and Patrick to show you how I looked like almost the entire time I was reading this book.

Yup. Giggled and almost managed a blush I did and was going to post something on Facebook at some point except I figured no one in my friends list really would appreciate a grown ass woman giggling over a lavender penis. No, you heard right. There was a lavender penis involved as well as some naughty inter-species man lovin' and pret

This had a much stronger sci-fi world-building than the first book in the series. I think because it was essentially a road trip and we got to see the characters move around the universe and interact with people on different worlds. I liked that a lot.

Lots of bed action here and I enjoyed the physical differences and how the sex between different species was incredibly hot. Darien and R'kos are extremely likeable characters. There's a sweet chemistry between them and the relationship that devel

3.5-4 stars overall. This book was a little bit uneven in terms of my enjoyment. I loved the first 50% or so when R'kos and Darien were getting to know each other. The next 30% was less enjoyable for me because it focused on the outside forces keeping them from being together more than their relationship. I felt like the story kind of veered a little too far off course in these parts. The last 20% was good, though, because it came back to center and focused on our main couple again and what they ...more

An alien and human mating? Oddly its quite sensual and unique, especially with the liquorice flavour part of the story which was weirdly interesting. I had no idea what to make of it at first, lets just say it came as a surprise a good one, Lol. Ricky has some potent and special assets he knows how to use them much to Darien's delight. Darien is in heaven, happy with his little alien and who could blame him. Cute, likeable and very entertaining. A fun read without being too strange or off puttin ...more

I really enjoyed this little sci fi novella. The guys were both adorable and it was so fun (and smexy) to see them discover and experience the differences between them. Nice little bit of angst to add some drama but not make things too overwhelming. A great summer read.
Camille
It was alright.
Barely-there alien differences, purple-skin porn, sappy feelings.

While reading the first book I wanted it to be longer and explain more about the world building. I've got my wish in this one. R'kos, the Ankylos ambassador and Darien a human thief/small time criminal, travel together through the galaxy and while Darien explains the human colonies to his Ricky, the reader can catch up on this new world and learn more about the Ankylos race.

I thought this alien race quite fascinating, even though I hate licorice, and you have to read the book to find out, why I'

I will start off by admitting that I am not a huge sci-fi fan, but I really got into the worldbuilding that Burn provided. I could easily visualize the different species and liked the creativity that was involved in their creation. The cultural differences between the species was one of the most intriguing parts and really gave the whole world a more realistic feel despite the whole aliens and spaceships thing.

Both characters were well-written and interesting to read about. Darien, the human, ac

Ok, well that was different…not bad, but certainly different. I very much enjoyed the first book in this series and was looking forward to the second. While I didn’t like it as much it is still a very fitting sequel and builds nicely on the first. We get to learn a lot more about the Ankylos and their nature’s in this one, and well you just might want to hang on to your hats with this one boys and girls.

R’kos is the youngest son of the Ankylos’ emperor. He was appointed as the ambassador to the

Book two is R'kos' story. As the son of the Ankylos Emperor, he is expected to settle down. Stifled by familial obligations and the hive-herd lifestyle on his planet, R'kos steals a ship and heads to Elora Ki to see if he can find Mr. Right. Darien is the Robin Hood of the Galactic Alliance. He and R'kos' paths cross when Darien is in trouble and R'kos offers to help. Together, they evade Darien's pursuers and sneak aboard his space shuttle. Traveling along Darien's route, R'kos and Dar

Thanks to Vio for bringing this one to my attention, it sounded good, but since aliens and sci-fi isn't my preferred genre I probably would have skipped it.
Darien is a 'criminal' but really more of a Robin Hood and a real sweetie, and Ricky is a big purple gentle giant ( no, not like Barney, thank goodness).
Both don't fit in, Darien left home at 15 and had to make his way in the world anyway he could and Ricky lives in a very ( really very) close knit society , with no personal or privat s

I've never been interested in PNR - it just doesn't resonate with me. However, it was available in a group of lendables, so here I am. The love story was pretty average; it didn't break new boundaries but also was not offensive or non-enjoyable. The paranormal elements made it just meh for me.

I might look into another book of the author's if it is not paranormal. *sigh* I'm probably lying. I can't not read series, and the sequel was advertised at the end.

Oh, one thing. This is the second book

Fans of Spice 'n' Solace will probably love this story, but I had similar issues with this one as I did with the first, which is odd, since I love Burn's Cop Out. An enjoyable story with an interesting world, steamy sex, and a unique alien specie, but nothing that really jumped out and impressed me. I wanted to enjoy this story more than I did, and though I felt disappointed in some elements, overall it was a pleasant read.

I have just recently started enjoying Sci-Fi Romances and spotted this book. The title caught my eye because it reminded me of one of my favorite historical legendary characters, Robin Hood. And-
I was right. There was a bit of Robin Hood in the human character as noted in the blurb. The story was also fascinating with all the Sci-Fi elements that were present particularly in the racial differences between Darien, the human and R'kos, the Ankylos alien.

R'kos is the son of the Ankylos ruler and an

I enjoyed this. The writing was pretty good, I liked the guys, and I liked the chance to see Jathan One Moon, one of the lovers from Spice ‘n’ Solace. (R'kos was also in S'n'S, as a side character.) The Chimera stuff was interesting, and I wish more was done with that. But in general the story didn't really cover any new ground. I've seen a lot of these elements before. The prehensile penis, the communal living aliens with no sense of privacy. I could see why Darien freaked out, but that whole p ...more

I honestly would have never picked up this book if I wasn't participating in the 2013 A-Z book challenge, this book hadn't stated with the letter "A", and finally if it hadn't been one of the few books at Audible that did start with "A". I did not have high hopes that it would be anything more than a PWP. I have to say I was completely wrong on that count. In fact I liked the story better than the smut in this particular book. It reminded me of Firefly....a dirty Firefly, but Firefly none-the-le ...more

I absolutely loved this story.

It has every ingredient I love. Alien sex and...uh. Okay, that's really all I needed to love this book to bits.

This story was far more interesting than the first book. I found R'kos to be utterly adorable, horny and clueless while Darien was amusingly horny.

One of the highlights for me is the different cultural perspectives between human and Ankylos. Specifically the concept of personal space and privacy.

Did I mention I loved this story? Everyone should read this!
Tori
Objectively speaking, this book was the best decision I have made in at least two weeks.

The human main character is a good-hearted (I guess?) thief slash smuggler with serious family issues. When he's not thinking with his dick, he's saying things like I'M PLENTY DANGEROUS and getting himself into trouble. His lover is a lavender-skinned (all over, ohoho) alien prince, but not enough of a prince that it like really ever matters what he does, who decides to leave his family to see what this havi

Quick read. A little suspense, a lot of sex, minimal angst.
Interspecies romance in a sci-fi setting. A thief/smuggler and a runaway ambassador.
I guess I would rate it at about 3.5, but I am bumping up to four because I like the world building / species development.
The anatomical difference between the men made for some interesting sex. Speaking of sex, there was a lot of it. But the book still had a decent plot.
Some of the villains/opponents seemed one-dimensional b/c their motives were not re

I really, really liked this book!

There was something so large and kind about Ricky that you instantly just loved him, and could understand why he did the things he did.

I especially liked the way the author handled the difference in cultures -- enough that our American privacy norms would be shocked and could relate.

Really enjoyed the book!
Hannah
Both the writing and plot of this novella were extremely simplistic, even more so than the previous book in this series. That said, it was still a pleasant way to kill a few hours. I was in the mood for something that didn't require much mind share, and this fit the bill.
oceanid
I just love stories about kind hearted aliens! R'kos was such a sweetie, I wished the story never ended!
Mouse
I enjoyed this, but there wasn't any deeper emotion or story that would make this above a 3.
Deanna also on Leafmarks because I miss Marco
An interesting world, part Star Trek, part Star Wars but with a wildly erotic adult theme. What Star Trek could have "touched on" if it was done today on cable. Lavender. Not the usual color associated with a large alpha male candy, but it works. I am sorry but all I can think about "working" is the lavender appendage. That alone makes this book worth reading.

The two alpha males are hot and horny. Darien has had an active sex life pre-Ricky. Whenever they meet one of his earlier hook-ups, Ricky

Fun M/M SciFi Romance

He fled his home world to avoid the marriage triad his father, the Ankylos Emporer, had arranged for him. R'kos had always known he was not like other Ankylos, but it wasn't until a recent ambassadorship that he realized how different he really is. Instead of his own kind, it is the scent of human males who stir his mate instinct. So R'kos returns to Elora Ki as soon as he can, intent on finally indulging his unlocked passions.

Perfect timing.

You know. I have to say that I actually enjoyed this story. I was pleasantly surprised. I don't typically read a lot of Sci Fi, but lately, I've been on a mini kick. I enjoyed the many 'life' scenes parallel to current modern day human issues. This story is worth your time.

R'kos is a prince who's family is quite large, and at the center is a triad marriage-- which is typical of his alien race. The triads consist of two men and a woman. Thing is, R'kos is being stirred towards a marriage similar

A great little romp through human thief Darien's sector of the galaxy with his big, sexy, 6'5 alien companion R'kos, son of the Ankylos Emperor. Nice, tight sci-fi story, smexy sex, a bit of sweetness and angst...what's not to like. The narrator, unfortunately, made a few errors, and the recording was obviously not edited, but still tolerable as it didn't push me out of the story. Recommended!
DL
I've read a few alien and human books. One was way too fan fic, the other involved way too many tentacles. I would happily never have picked up another alien book again, but my friend was so pleased with this one. Burn balanced the differences between alien and human enough to be plausible. The characters were not perfect; they made mistakes but they were strong enough to bounce back. At one point Ricky seemed to forget that his lover was around which didn't seem very likely but after some thoug ...more

I totally finished this in one sitting! I loved it! R'kos was wonderful and Darien was awesome! Darien kept making me laugh with his inner monologues. I was cracking up! I loved the world this author created and want to read more but unfortunately I think there are only two books in this series. I like learning the differences between the two beings. I especially like learning more about the Ankylos! I love the imagination and creativity that was put into this! This was a great read! ♥♥♥♥♥
