Oh um..this book surprised me. It's a Drew Zachary story, so I knew there would be a lot of sex. I also knew it would be steamy and a little kinky. No surprises there, but there was some real serious issues in this book. (view spoiler). It was dealt with well, I though and made Tab more likeable with how he dealt with the aftermath.
The beginning is a little difficult Tab and Will are snipping, arguing, fighting and provoking e

Beneath the sexfest there is the subtle world building, the banter, the care which I also liked.

Hot-shot pilot Will is sent out by the Captain of the spaceship Arillia to find an engineer for their ship. When he meets Tab and hires him neither of them has an idea of the adventures that await them. Will is a young man who has been mistreated and sexually abused and those experiences have affected him deeply. Tab is a mature strong-willed man and while they are almost immediately attracted to each other they are like oil and water, and are continually butting heads. Their conflicts continue ...more

Just enough plot to connect the sex scenes, enough characterization so I know the characters, and of course Zachary's trademark sizzling sex. I have a big soft spot for Zachary stories, though not all will work for me, and I definitely enjoyed Frighter Flights. I've already bought the sequel and will read it soon.

Will is the pilot of Arillia and she is his baby, and she needs a good doctor, someone who is willing to join them. He finds Tab, a big man with great skills in his hands both for a mechanical engine than a human body. And now the only body he wants to play with his Will's.

Will and Tab have strong will and no one of them wants to leave the command, but, this time Tab will understand that say the "no" word could win him the way to Will's body and trough that to his heart.

Will has a past of no g

Story was okay and everything started out great. Looked like the typical sci-fi romance I enjoy so I don't quite know how it went downhill but it did for me when Will, the sexy pilot, turned into a girly character. Tab, the engineer Will hired on, was alright but even he lost his attractiveness because I couldn't get past his attraction for Will which was superficial, to say the least.

The MM romances that I like always have that emotional intensity as well as tension between the protagonists. In

Drew Zachary has a knack for creating amazing characters who in their struggles to survive are able to find goodness in others. Though Tab and Will both have emotional issues to work through, they need each other to find the love and be whole again. The sex is graphic and definitely male / male, and there are a couple of very rough scenes, but these all add to the depth of these men and give us an understanding of where these two are emotionally. If you enjoy gay erotica, you'll enjoy this one.

OGM! This was smokin' hot! I loved the fighting between Tam, our engineer and Will, our flyboy. The stubborn pride, every little thing setting their teeth on edge. I enjoyed watching them fumble towards a relationship, figuring things out the hard way sometimes. Add in getting chased by pirates and getting drunk at port...made me a happy girl. I am soooo looking forward to reading book two.

I just love Zachary Drew's characters. Period!
I have a soft spot for age-gap and I loved how protective Tab was. And Will's also a tough guy if maybe a little cranky sometimes xD
And sex is smokin' as always!

Hot, incredibly witty and a fantastic story - everything you could ask for from a book, and even better a sequel to read next!! All I've come to expect from Drew Zachary, this story was just brilliant.

So I love a good enemies to lovers story and Drew Zachary definitely gives us two men who are at odds with each other right from the start. Neither really means to, but somehow they are constantly setting each other off. There is a grudging respect for the other’s skills, but their tempers just flare when they are together. So I enjoyed seeing these guys progress over the course of the book, to soften and stop taking such easy offense, and to slowly come to really

I've had this for a while but haven't felt up to reading it. I didn't like On Fire and have stayed clear of Drew Zachary ever since but I needed a spaceman for my whips and kisses challenge and since I already had this I thought what a heck, gotta read it sometime. I really liked it! I loved both Will and Tab and how they acted. I loved how Tab cared for Will and wanted to treat him right. And this is not good, I have soo much to read but now I've got to check out what else Zachary has written.
Mara Ismine
I enjoyed this pure sci-fi novel. Tab and Will are one of the most awkward couples that I have read about. They aren't in touch with their feelings at all, if they can possibly avoid it. They are touchy, prickly and bad tempered. They can't have a conversation without arguing. And the l-word should only apply to a good brew or top-of-the-range meal. Despite all that they do manage to build a relationship that fits them well.

I'm looking forward to Flying High

One cranky mechanic plus one equaly cranky pilot makes a romance full of fun. I loved all the headbutting they indulged in. Overall it was a funny and sweet love story. It didn't dwell on angsty bits, all bad things that happened were mostly left to imagination.

Fun and sexy space romp featuring an oil-and-water pairing. The MCs’ reluctance to trust each other became a bit exasperating, but the “fight, fight, fuck” progress of their friendship was readably entertaining.
