My thoughts: I give it ♥♥♥♥. This is my second time reading this book and I really enjoyed it. A little bit of angst but just a plain ole story of love and the challenges that we face and can overcome with enough determination. I would like to know if there is a sequel because there are so many unanswered questions about the space craft that was sending messages to them. Why? That’s why I only gave it 4 stars. But overall, I liked it. I would recommend it.
Linguist Elios Campbell is thrilled to be granted flight time in a Colonial Guard fighter jet, until he catches sight of his pilot. Spending time with Sender Kinnison holds even more appeal than the flight itself.
Sender’s desire for other men is forbidden by his faith and his family. He tries to resist his attraction to Elios, who is unlike anyone he’s ever known. When he fails, the incredible sex quickly leads to something deeper, forcing Sender to question his long-held beliefs.
Then, duty calls Sender home to the repressed colony of Themis. Will he be forced to give up a future with Elios to honor the ghosts of his past?
