Character development: ☹️🙃☺️😀
Narration Type: Dual Narration
The heroine: Alice – she was taken captive by Aliens, then awoke to find herself and a few other human women alone on the ship Bouyant Star, floating in another galaxy. They didn’t know how to pilot the ship since they couldn’t read the alien language, so they played possum and have been able to steal food and supplies from other ships that think theirs is abandoned.
The Hero: Kaspar – He and his brothers are easy going Massaka space pirates, in it for the money, the adventure and the fun. In the first book, he and his brothers teamed up with another ship and an Lord Straik to find the Bouyant Star. He left the guys hanging after finding out his family was in the slave trade.
The Story: Alice and Kaspar find themselves alone on an escape pod spending days doing nothing while traveling through space until they end up crashing onto a jungle planet. They are attracted to each other, but Alice has been used and abused by aliens in the past so is reluctant to start anything with Kaspar.
Like many of Ruby Dixon’s books, this one was told in dual points of view via dual narration and was narrated by Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd. I didn’t like Hollie Jackson’s voice the first time I heard it, but she is a really good narrator and I do really like enjoy her narration style and Mason Lloyd is great at these alien romances as well.
The story was a good one, these two were basically alone through the first half of the book, but they were both were very likable characters and I enjoyed their journey. Their time on the Jungle planet was a nice interlude. They faced a few different dangers and met some kooky aliens along the way. It ended on a nice note with them creating a nice home.
