A "Live Your Life, Buy The Book" Review

Ron Vid doesn’t like Zaoh Dem. Ron is transfixed by, and a touch infatuated with, Zaoh, but he doesn’t like that fact nor does he like Zaoh. Unfortunately, Ron is a deserter and life as a mercenary is all he’s got. It’s his bad luck Zaoh happens to be a mercenary at the same place. It’s also Ron’s bad luck their boss, who happens to be an empath and Ron’s former sexual playmate, is forcing them to work on a mission together. Immediately things go fro

A raunchy space adventure that doesn't quite have a space feel but definitely has lots of heat. It hit the right note for me and I enjoyed the sexual tension between Ron and Zaoh.

Though it's part of a series, both books can definitely be considered standalone and it's fine if you want to read them out of sequence.

POV: First Person
Kisses: 3.5

Confused when revenge achieved doesn’t make him feel better, Ron Vid deserts his commision and planet hoping to leave his cravings for an enemy soldier, Zaoh Dem, behind. Ron Vid’s long-term feelings of respect and lust for the man are conflicted, made worse by the fact that Zaoh Dem’s sister killed Ron’s best friend in battle (it wasn’t a clean kill either), and that Ron Vid was ultimately responsible for the death of the woman. There are other issues as well, of

Review written for MM Good Book Reviews

This story is part of a series but can be read as a stand-alone. Ron was a Celian Commander before he deserted because of his demons, working as a mercenary for Ami is a reprieve he was looking for but then Zaoh a Haffa joins the band of mercenaries and Ron's peace becomes turmoil. Haffa's and Celian's have a history of blood and violence but the tension between Ron and Zaoh is tinged with attraction, when on a mission that goes wrong the pair give

Readers who like their stories cutting edge will get exactly that with this sci-fi read with intense BDSM play. The action is fast-paced as two men affected by war are drawn together against their will as their lives are in jeopardy with only themselves to count on. But can these two men who are full of secrets build a life together or will revenge get in the way?

Ron is a former soldier turned mercenary who carries lots of emotional baggage after a mission goes very wrong. It's left him with PTS

I didn’t know what to expect from this author and so I opened up this book with no expectations, and I’m glad I did. I loved this book! The setting quickly pulled me in and I was captivated by the harsh landscape, beautiful storyline and unique characters.

This isn’t a long book, but it is full of complicated characters and an intriguing world. The gang of mercs these two belong to are incredibly interesting with lots of dynamics that begged to be explored. Zaoh and Ron have a love/hate, lust/fig

3.5 Stars

This is an enemies-to-lovers story, but is not in any way a love story, so don’t expect rainbows and unicorns and fairy tale romance. There’s lots of snarky dialogue volleyed back and forth, some teasing narrative to keep the reader wondering how the two men will finally move forward, and an “I hate you/I want you/I hate wanting you/I want to keep hating you and wanting you” vibe to this relationship that keeps the reader guessing, which makes for some tension before they get to the sex

3 stars. I read the first book in this world and remember enjoying it alot, but it's been alot of books since then and I couldn't remember all the secondary characters. So I'm not sure if the MC's in this book where introduced already and that threw me off a little bit. (maybe I should of done a reread first!) I was quickly caught up in Ron and Zaoh's adventures. And the sexing was hot! *fans self* Though I would of liked to have read Zaoh's thoughts/feelings.

Will be reading more of this verse

Recommends it for: SFI quirkiness
Ron Vid was a Celian soldier till he deserted, left his planet and became a mercenary. He is joined in the merc business by an old enemy, a Haffa named Zaoh. Ron has had a secret passion for Zaoh, since their planets were at war with each other. But Ron carries a secret with him that could be his death if Zaoh finds out.

This was fantastic. It was fast paced, load with lots of quirkiness. The sex sizzles off the page. You could grill with the heat in this book. Lots and lots of fun.

Although some of the sex scenes in this book were a little too raunchy for me at times, my enjoyment of the story was in no way affected by it. The chemistry between Ron and Zaoh was palpable, which made the pages turn all the more quickly, and I loved their easy banter. An enjoyable read for sure.
