THEY'RE GALAXIES APART...My Thoughts: I've read everything except book 7 in this series and I have to say that I find it ridiculously fun. These are the books you pick up when you're having a so-so day and they end up making you smile. What's not to like here? You get a race of feline aliens who are so good at wooing the ladies that their entire planet was destroyed in a fit of jealousy. Did you read that last sentence? They're so good at boning that the ladies are never left unsatisfied. WIN!
Even for a Zetithian, Tarq Zulveidinoe's sexual prowess is legendary. Believing it's all he's good for, Tarq sets out to perpetuate his threatened species by offering his services to women across the galaxy...
BUT ONE FORCE CAN BRING THEM TOGETHER...
Lucinda Force is the sensitive dark horse in a self-absorbed family, repeatedly told that no man will ever want such a plain woman. Lucy longs for romance, but is resigned to her loveless lot in life-until Tarq walks through the door of her father's restaurant on Talus Five...
Tarq's belief that he's less than everyone around him and is only good at making babies - and sexin' up the ladies to make the babies - because he can't read, was sad. He's learned to work around this disability - color coding his belongings, flirting with women so they'd help him - but it's shaped his life in so many ways. He truly believes that the only thing he's good for is stud duty. Even when he's in the wilderness surviving off the land and making bows out of tree branches to protect his group, he's humble. It made him so terribly sweet.
Lucy suffers from the same self-esteem issues as Tarq for entirely different reasons. She looks at him and can't imagine what he could ever see in plain-Jane Lucy. She's entirely resigned to loving him and then giving him up because she can't imagine anyone as beautiful and worldly as he is would want to settle down with someone like her. Between the two of them, their issues and lack of self-esteem cause more problems than anything.
While the resolution of Tarq and Lucy admitting their feelings for one another sort of popped up without much warning, I loved seeing Tarq blossom in his role as a leader in the wilds. While he was never truly comfortable with everyone relying on him, he did it very well. Lucy, also, came into her own once she escaped the stifling confines of her family. All in all, I'd have to say that this was a fun romp with one very sexy alien who likes to give his ladies pleasure like no other. I approve.
