Review: Outcast by Cheryl Brooks

Outcast (Cat Star Chronicles #4) by Cheryl Brooks
Synopsis (Goodreads):
Sold into slavery when his planet was destroyed, Lynx was enslaved in a harem. He is a favorite due to his feline gene, which gives him remarkable sexual powers, but after ten years, Lynx is exhausted.

Thrown out without a penny, Lynx is bitter and anti-female. He emigrates to a new planet but can only find a job with a female rancher.

Bonnie's boyfriend has left with all their money and she needs help with the ranch. Lynx is cynical, but honest, and though he has made it clear that he wants no part of a romantic relationship, Bonnie can't resist him. She finds out about his impotence and becomes determined not to let such a beautiful and sensual young man go to waste...
My Thoughts: I think this is my favorite book in this series. Lynx is just so damaged by his past. He starts out so wary of everything Bonnie does for him. I just want to cry and give him cookies and hugs (which is apparently my standard operating procedure for damaged heroes) and tell him that everything will be okay. Shh, shh. Everything will be fine, kitty. Everything will be fine.

By and large, Lynx is the draw in this book. I liked that even though he was angry and withdrawn, he did his best to help Bonnie out. He didn't want her anywhere near him, but he never gave less than 100% to her farm. When Bonnie's baby is born, he not only delivers the little dumpling but he helps care for her and takes on the role of a father figure. His absolute adoration of this little baby  was so sweet and huggable.

It was fun seeing the characters from previous books pop in. Jack is just as weirdly abrasive as always (I still like her, she can just get a little fixated on things), the couples do the things that couples do (which involves a lot of baby making), the sex is creative (backwards sexing!), and the bad guys continue to get what's coming to them. Fun stuff!
