Sometimes going back is all you can do…

Angel Carter doesn’t know why he kidnapped a criminal and fled the planet. He just knows that he’s confused and the man responsible is one Frank Morgan. His ship crashes leaving them both stranded on Earth, a planet that is supposed to be free of people. A perfect hide out—or it was until he’s greeted by the natives.

Frank wanted to be free of a life of crime and made a deal to turn in his boss when things went crazy. He was injured in the process and woke up when the ship he was on crashed. He didn’t remember much—only now he’s in a jail cell with the very man he was supposed to be working with.

Will the past bring them their future?

My View:

I am not sure what I want to say about this story. Once again I enjoyed this bit of fluff, but it was way too short and left me wanting more.

I loved being back on Earth and learning what happened to the other half of the consortium, but it was just a blip and not fully realized. I really wish these stories would have been full length novels instead of novellas. Just like the previous books, this one had so much potential! This world could have been fantastic.

Frank and Angel’s romance again had that instalove feel but they had history that was actually well explained so I was invested in their outcome. I did feel they were rushed, but I was content with the way things moved forward.

Since there are no more books for me to read I am assuming this was meant to be the end of this series. While it wrapped up the series ARC fairly well, it left things open for more. In fact it set things up so that I was expecting there to be more books. With the ending, the author once again showed her skill in making me forget all my issues and hope for another book so that I could get Tok’s story. For all my complaints, the author continued to keep me interested and coming back for more. I liked the premise of those series, I liked the promise of this world, and I liked the love between the characters. As I’ve said before, as a series this was good, as individual stories, I needed more.
