Far From Home is a steamy, sensual read of two lovers living on different planets who find an innovative, satisfying way to be together. The science is plausible and interesting and something I wouldn't mind giving a try. A thoroughly enjoyable story. My only complaint is that it is too short. I can see this transitioning to a full length novel, maybe someday? ...more

TTASS, I want one!! Great story about a really long distance relationship. Wow Rajiv and Two certainly figured out how to make it work. Love is definitely the way to go! Good work Dale Cameron Lowery!

This is wonderful heart-warming book and I really enjoyed reading it. Although the story was very short, I found the story-line to be quite well thought out and written. The characters have personality with emotional feelings of lust, desire and love, according to the situation they find themselves in. I would recommend this book to people who like to read a short well-written M/M Science Fiction Romance with a virtual reality happy ending.

I was surprised by how much I enjoyed this short story as I'm not a big fan of syfi. Very hard for Rajiv and Mateo to be so far apart from each other but luckily for them virtual reality makes it a little easier for them to feel like they are together. I felt like I was immersed in the pages with them, very erotic and believable.
