Narration Type: Dual Narration
The Hero: Alyvos – he is the muscle of the crew on the Lovesick Fool (a.k.a. Dancing Fool). He is also the one that is always grumpy and likes to relieve his stress by getting in fights, especially when they go to a wild space station. They were at a station and a couple of aliens were bragging about guns they are hauling and speaking loudly about how interested they are in human females. So they decide to relieve the aliens of their goods and have a great plan to do so by luring the fools using one of the human females (Cat from In the Corsair’s Bed).
The heroine: Iris – she was taken captive from Earth by aliens that are sadistic and cruel. They liked to maim and terrify their captives. They have taken her eyes, half a finger, a toe and carved into her flesh. She was kept in a cage and starved, while all the other humans in cages were torn apart piece by piece until she was the only human left.
The Story: Alyvos was quite put out at first when Fran and then later Cat joined their crew, but he has recently come around to their value on ship and likes both of the human females. They enact their plan to take over the alien spaceship, but soon after being led away by the aliens, Cat reaches the guys on a com stating that they need to come get her right away, because she was put in a cage in the dark cargo bay and she is smelling a lot of rotting flesh around her.
I like that Alyvos was so grumpy in the first two books, but is so kind to Iris when he rescues her. He had PTSD and couldn’t get over the things he saw during the war and the conditions where he found Iris were similar to things he experienced in the war. He wanted to torture the aliens that hurt Iris so badly and killed the rest of the humans on board the ship. He not so patiently waited for Iris to fix her broken parts.
This book is told in dual points of view via dual narration and is narrated by Hollie Jackson and Mason Lloyd like the first two books in this series. I like both of these narrators a lot and they do so well with alien romance. Mason has a deep, manly voice and Hollie has a soft emotive voice, both are very pleasant.
