I torn between 3.5 and 4. It was entertaining enough. The sex was practically molten it was so hot. I mean like really smexy and there is a lot of it. I really liked both Gar and Faolan (much more in the beginning than in the end though). The plot was engaging and the writing fine.
But I also had a few issues with the story. To begin with there was the fairly drastic change in attitude that both men took in order to fall into each-others arms the first few times. One minute their at each-others throats, amped up and barley restraining themselves from murdering each-other, the next their having hot passionate sex. This I could buy (given the extenuating circumstances) except that they were suddenly tender, considerate lovers. I would have at least expected angry sex, but no, it was all soft embraces and 'I'll take care of you'. Then there was Mace. What are the chances of that happening? Realistically almost none, but paradoxically I also found it painfully predictable. The same could be said for the bad guy. Could he really have been responsible for ALL OF THAT?
This was a fairly erotic M/M read, but at it's core it really is a romance. Two lonely, broken men find each-other and heal each-other's wounds. I have to admit I preferred them hard and broken to romantic and fragile, but that's just me really. I'm not a firm believer of the requisite HEA. As a Amazon freebie I was more than happy with it. I even considered getting the sequel, but opted instead to see if it ever comes up for free.

Space Pirate and Bounty Hunter, who could ask for moreReviewed in the United States on 23 March 2013
Christine d'Abo put the two together and definitely made it work. Intrigue and adventure with two hot sexy characters, meet Gar and Captain Wolf. Sarcastic wit and smart ass comments adds to the spicy romance blowing up between these two. Add this one to your collection you won't regret it.

This was pretty good. I enjoyed the writing style and the characters were fun to read about. The bantering between Gar and Faolan was entertaining. Great start to this series.
