Lists with This Book. May 25, Julio Genao rated it did not like it Recommends it for: Recommended to Julio by: He felt desire—and fear. Liam was moving as if about to mount him.
The space between them as Liam backed away felt cold and empty. He shuddered in pure joy and fulfillment, burning, transcendent. View all 73 comments. Dec 12, ElaineY rated it really liked it Shelves: I would have given this 5 stars if it was longer and the ending unrushed and less abrupt. In this case, it’s between Liam, an earthling and Talon, a Kuryeen, who are related to earthlings in some way, apparently, and allies with Earth.
Though this is a sci-fi MM romance, the focus is always on the two men and the sci-fi, futuristic stuff never intrudes. I loved the interaction between the two men an I would have given this 5 stars if it was longer and the ending unrushed and less abrupt.
I loved the interaction between the two men and they couldn’t be more different. Both are fighter pilots and Liam is cocky, irreverent and irresistible. Talon, on the other hand, is tortured especially when he realizes he’s fallen for Liam! Their romance doesn’t feel rushed even though it happens early but the sex scenes aren’t as explicit as most MM ones. There is only one with penetration and it occurs at the end of the story I now have to hunt through my MM TBR pile to find one I think is comparable – and longer, just to have a more substantial ending.
The intensity is not supplied by the sex scenes but by the characters themselves, which is my favorite way. Apr 09, Didi rated it liked it Recommended to Didi by: I do dislike over the top Alpha figures. But put them in a sci-fi, outer space setting I find that I don’t mind it at all! The story was nothing complicated. Two alpha-male, one with happy go lucky attitude the other the discipline stiff comjander with dignity kind of guy.
Contrast coloring, personalities; both gorgeous and best at what they “Space, the final frontier Contrast coloring, personalities; both gorgeous and snd at what they did of course.
Put commanedr in closed conveyance, away from others for gads knew how long In a non-carnivorous way, I mean. What’s not to like! Oct 20, Karel rated it did not like it Shelves: The whole time I was reading the space fight scene this was in my head: Which about sums up the whole story.

I’d call it PWP, but I hez think it even qualifies as porn. It’s a really condensed, really badly commmander story about two characters who seem to have absolutely no chemistry together. The best part of the book was that it re-enacted those shooter games from the s where you navigate a space ship that spewed out fluorescent beams. Oct 19, LenaLena rated it did not like it Shelves: Can’t deal with the cumbersome goodreads formatting for this.
Talon and Liam are polar opposites. Talon is stoic, arrogant and cold, sneering at humans because they are beneath him whereas Liam is full of energy, recklessness and boyish-charm, smiling and making friends where ever he goes because he’s so likable. Talon doesn’t like Liam from the start and it only gets worse when he realizes Liam is his mate.
I really liked this one. The characters were interesting and the world building was fascinating. The descriptions about the differences between Kuryeen Talon and Liam are polar opposites.
The descriptions about the differences between Kuryeens and Earthbreed humans kept my attention throughout the whole book and the conflict with Talon’s pride and having a mate like Liam and the repercussions of it really interested me. My only problem with it was how short it was and how commnder sex there was. I would have liked to have it a bit longer and a bit more explained about where Liam and Talon will go from here but I still really enjoyed this one because it kept me smiling through the book.
I’m hoping there will be more about them someday.
Jul 01, Heather C rated it it was amazing Shelves: This was a lovdr, sci-fi, paranormal romance and another one of those gay-for-my-mate stories. Oh, and it was also kinda enemies-to-lovers. For some reason, I found this to be the sweetest line in the whole book: View all 4 comments.
May 12, Elisa Rolle added it. Liam and Talon are both warriors but from different planet. Both far descendant from Earthian, they share common genes, but not the same customs. Talon is from Kury, a planet whose people are proud and fierce, and always in control; they have a strict code of honor, and they will kill themself to not break lovef.

Kury’s warriors are also extremely handsome, lean and lethal, similar to Native American warriors; when they meet their mates, they release pheromones to imprint the female and make her desires the warrior. When Talon realizes that he desires Liam, the only right thing to do is to commit an honorable suicide.
Liam is a friendly and open big man. Jovial and always ready to a joke, he has a perennial smile on his face. He can admit without problem that Talon is an handsome man, only a blind wouldn’t notice that, but Liam is a woman’s man When faced with the perspective to lose his new-found fellow fly-fighter, Liam decides to do anything to prevent it This is not a long book, less than 90 pages, but it’s very funny. Usually a futuristic novel involving planet wars and aliens is strange, interesting, but not funny!
Liam and Talon’s story reminds me a bit Top Gun And so Liam and Talon play at wargames and in the bedroom with the same strenght and attitude: Talon all honor and duty, stick to tradition and hierarchy, and instead Liam is always ready to rebel and to make a risky move that in the end gain him the victory. So with Talon, Liam will risk and win. Again a rather light and easy book, surely aand a serious “futuristic” qnd. Don’t search for detailed description of new-worlds, but if you want a quite charming romp between the sheets Jul 19, Jess rated it really liked it.
A lady had posted in enough details about this book that my memory commandet going ‘ding ding ding’ I hunted anr the title and emailed All Romance. Having read this a second time I stand by my rating and my original review.
I would have loved just a tinsy bit more story so it didnt seem so abrupt.
