In the 23rd Century in the galaxy of Sigma Kappa, Kim Fortune was the first surviving experimental enhanced human—a regenerate. Aged fifteen, he escaped the lab and years later, his failings as a regenerate and the suspicion of regular humans, leave him lonely and lacking in self-worth. Stranded on an abandoned planet, the arrival of a stricken ship and its crew give him hope that he may finally find what he always longed for—love.
Christian Novak is a successful regenerate with all the intended attributes—including lack of human emotion. Despite their immediate attraction to each other, Kim’s failing confidence, and Christian’s inability to empathize are a recipe for disaster. But war, imprisonment, and danger throw them together, and after each saves the other’s life, their feelings begin to change.
Can a seemingly unsuitable pair ever find love, or is a future together destined to fail?
Louise Lyons is a new author for me and I will definitely be reading more! Although I found the writing quite dry to start with, it quickly fell into a pleasing rhythm that fit the locations and atmosphere of the book.
The characters were well portrayed and really enjoyed reading about them. The science fiction and world building was great and imaginative. The romance had its moments and although I didn’t always feel there was enough to get to I Love You I definitely bought the attraction. I appreciated the epilogue to show how things were working out.
If you are a fan of sci-fi, especially space fearing people and different planets, then this is definitely worth checking out!
I would like to thank the publisher for providing me with the eARC of this title in exchange for my honest opinion.
