Book Blurb

Paxton Chambers lived from hand to mouth, doing things he despised to survive. When one of the crew members of the Lady Blue asks him to help out, Pax is quick to lend a hand.

Colt Walking Cloud is a member of the Lady Blue crew. He's fast, quick, and quiet, a deadly weapon with a sniper rifle. When he discovers that the little blue man is his mate, Colt goes on the hunt.

Pax can never understand what anyone is saying. He thinks his intelligence is under par. Colt takes him under his wing and shows him a life Pax never dreamed of having.

When Lady Blue is infested with slug-like worms with a lethal mucus, it’s up to the crew to irradiate them. The only thing stopping them is the fact the Pax has taken a liking to them and will do whatever he can to save them, even launch the escape pod.


Book Review

This is book two in the Lady Blue Crew series and although it can be read as a stand alone I would recommend you read book one first if only to get a little history on the characters.

Pax is a sweetheart carrying a whole lot of baggage. Due to his betrayal by his family he spent quite a long time living on the streets doing what he needed to do in order to survive. Unfortunately, Pax doesn't see it that way. He views himself as completely dirty and not worth anything of value. He is attracted to his mate, Colt, but knows he isn't worthy of that good, strong man. Pax has a different way of viewing the world and oftentimes he doesn't understand others humor or wit. This contributes to his very poor self-image.

Colt is a hawk shifter who has found his mate but been unable to claim him. He suspects he knows what Pax had to do to survive and he doesn't look down on him for it. Colt just wants to love and care for Pax. The mixed signals he is receiving are really confusing him, though, and Colt is unsure of how to get to know Pax without scaring him off. Colt adores everything about Pax including the way he thinks and the joy he gets from everything.

The Lady Blue is on a cargo run from Lone Star 3 to End of the Line when the ship becomes infested with Uryclian Mucus Slugs. Yeah, they are as gross as they sound, green and covered in deadly goo. Ugh. Although watching the shenanigans that Pax and Gigi get up to trying to rid the ship of the worms is hilarious. And once Pax feels more secure his sense of humor is extremely funny and entertaining.

If you're looking for eye-opening drama, this story probably isn't for you. But if you're looking for a fun, entertaining story, give it a try.
