A Talent For Trouble is the first book in the Bad Boys of Space Series by Landra Graf. This is the first book that I have read by Ms. Graf, so I wasn’t sure of what to expect going into the story. The story proved to be a well written, interesting and entirely entertaining space adventure, with romance, a little mystery, some suspense, danger, gun fights and battles, and wonderfully quirky characters.
Emilio Morales has a bit of a reputation as a lady’s man and bad boy- as a drug runner th ...more
My first read from this author, I went in blind and just started reading. The cover and synopsis may have invited me in, but the stellar writing, intriguing plot and attention to detail, made me stay.
I will say that this is a little out of my comfort zone, not so much that it's a sci-fi, but because it was a Mafia style setup, and I don't normally gravitate towards ...more

I love, love, loved this story! It is full of action and suspense. As well as a relationship full of lust, snark and mutual distrust. I loved each of these characters from the first moment we met them. Toni is such a strong female lead! She kept me on my toes but never disappointed me. She is not afraid to get her hands dirty and has a loyal following. Emilio is trying to turn his life around when everything goes wrong. He is ...more

This book starts off with a bang. I was white knuckling my kindle the entire time. Emilio is the definition of space pirate, however the way he says it, he is just a runner. A runner who has now been contracted with the one of the most ruthless, deadliest drug dealers in the known region. He plans to risk everything to get what he wants. The glory, the money, the prestige. What he did not plan on risking was Toni.

I really liked the space adventure part of the story I thought it was really interesting to read about. I thought that they characters were well thought out. For me, I liked how I wasn’t so keen on Emilio at the very beginning but I warmed to him as the story progressed. I loved Antonia ...more
This book took the drug business to a new level. You’re put into a place that is only a dream. A place where we are loving and interacting with other beings. I liked the thought process and details the author put into this story. To visualize a world where anything is possible. I really liked the characters. Emilio is a strong character that shows his weaknesses. He didn’t falter or let his ego show because Toni was stronger or bett ...more

I really enjoyed reading this story, it was full of adventure, danger, suspense, and romance.

I loved Toni's character from the beginning, she's independent, sassy, and tough. It took me a little longer to warm up to Emilio, but once I got to know him I r ...more

Emilio and Toni live in a rough time and both have been hurt in different ways. Though their souls are bent, they are not yet broken. In the story, they are placed in a position that could cost them everything. These are not two perfect people. Each has flaws and traumas, and they fight (sometimes with each other and other times for each other). I love how they change during the story!
This story has so much such as spacey adventure, contains both romanti ...more
The science was plausible, the sexual tension was thick, and the plot was captivating. Morales was kind of annoying in the beginning with his smug, arrogant attitude. But eventually he deflates his ego a bit and Toni just wants to use him as a means to an end. She never again wants to be under a man's thumb again. She wants to be her own boss in every sense but there's just something ...more

This was a quick and detailed read that has space travel, suspense, good old fashioned scum baggery, romance and humor.
The action moved swiftly, the story is told with a particular cadence that was easy to read and it held my interest .
This is the first story I've read by this author and I look forward to reading more.
I liked that all character are strong and some are stubborn.
Some well known sayings have been changed to fit the world, this helped the flow of the story.
