What’s a computer geek to do when his sys-admin job becomes so boring that not even making life hell for the users on his network seems like fun anymore? Run away to space, of course! Now Allard’s stuck on a spaceship with another very hunky man–and he’s about to discover that even wise-cracking geeks like him have sex lives. And thanks to a voyeuristic crewmate, so are the rest of their sexy shipmates. Publisher’s Note: Contains explicit sexual scenes that may be offensive to some readers.

My View:

So The Syndicate: Volume 1 is totally PWP, but it is good PWP; imaginative, kinky, sexy, funny and even adorable at times. I loved Allard. He was the perfect embodiment of a sysadmin. Computer geeks will totally get the jokes and appreciate him to his fullest but anyone who wants some sexy times will enjoy their interactions.

This is now offered for free on the author’s webpage. I highly suggest letting yourself enjoy an afternoon of fun with this novella! The best part? There is more in the series, which I will be sure to check out when I need a pick me up! I will also be checking out more of these authors’ works to see what else they can write.

  1. The cover art you have there is from the Loose Id edition, and is by the wonderful April Martinez, who also did the covers for Loose Id’s editions of Volumes 2 & 3. Put all three covers together and you find they make a single picture – which made a rather nice coffee mug print. 🙂 Alas, the licencing terms for Loose Id’s cover art meant that I had to pull the covers from my site once those editions went out of print. (And thanks for the review.)

    • Thanks for the heads up! I pulled the picture from Goodreads as I needed something to display. Do you have another image we could use?

      • Afraid not – I put the text up on my website so it was available to read, particularly for people who’d read the paperback and wanted the other bits; but we haven’t republished any of it as an actual book so there’s no new cover art. I don’t think there’s a problem with you using the old art, since it’s on places like GoodReads and LibraryThing, but I didn’t want anyone to think they’be getting it on my webpage.
