I only started this series a few weeks ago, but I am absolutely in love with it. The moment I finished book one I immediately went out and purchased the second book in the series, Derivation. Lyn Gala has such an excellent way with words and worlds. I can’t recommend this series enough.
The first in a new series by Cass Lennox, Blank Spaces was everything I could ever hope it to be. I love the way the characters and their varying sexualities were handled here, and I am on the edge of my seat to see what the author has for the next three books.
I tried to pick just one of these books to list, and well…that’s just not possible. I could make a whole favorites list just from these books alone. This year I had the chance to continue reading the series as new books came out, as well as go back and enjoy the audiobooks. Love is not a strong enough word for what I feel for this series.
This year I had the great opportunity to read several of Metzger’s books, and I am so glad I got the chance. He is an awesome writer, and his many transgender characters are some of the best written I have ever read. I found this book to be near perfect and would recommend it for anyone who likes a bit of spice in bedroom as well as some exceptionally well written characters.
While this was written as two books, it is in fact one story and I couldn’t list one over the other. Romance, royalty, and damn good writing make this a story not to miss. And I know I am not alone in wanting the author to continue the story of James and Ben.
You have no idea how much I loved this book. I picked it up on sale on a whim, but I was quickly converted to a full blown fan by first few chapters. I love all things space and science-y and this book just was an awesome mix of all that with a lovely romance and great secondary characters. Plus we don’t often get to see astronauts in a modern-ish setting, and I really wish I could find more.
