The Prayer and her crew have been lost in space for four years. Thomas is lonely and homesick; Zachery is angry and mutinous; Rick is just terrified. And all of them are really in need of a fuck.

The only thing holding them together is their captain, an aloof, sharp-tongued man whose methods of keeping up morale are unconventional, but extremely effective. But now the captain has a choice to make: do they continue their fruitless search for a way home or try to start a new life in this strange galaxy?

My View:

The Captain’s Men was an interesting story with some hot sexy but ultimately fell flat for me. I never bonded with the characters and the story could’ve used a little more characterization.

The spaceship Prayer has been stuck in the middle of space but the captain has been leading them well. He’s strong if not a little cold. However, that doesn’t stop several of his men from lusting after him. The lust quickly turns to hot action and the captain sleeps with several guys.

I was interested in this story because of the setting and I liked the sex scenes because they were hot. However, I never got to know these guys, especially the captain, beyond the sex.

The writing was crisp and strong, I just didn’t care for the plot. Recommended for those who like polyamory and menages.
