Erotic Romance, Romantic Science Fiction/Futuristic

Brady Garrett is back on Earth. He's living with his partner, Cam, and they're raising his sister Lucy together. Life is better than some feral reffo from Kopa has any right to hope, and Brady knows it. He's even grateful for it, most of the time. He loves Cam, even though he's afraid that he's not good enough for him, and he's still having nightmares about the alien Faceless.

Cameron Rushton loved being a pilot once, and he still feels the pull of the starlight. He's building a life with Brady now, and with Lucy. Life is good, even if it's not without its complications. Both Brady and Cam are dealing with the endless cycle of interviews, tests, and questions that the military hierarchy hopes will reveal the secrets of the aliens who could very easily destroy humanity. They have each other though, and together they're making it work.

But from out in the black, Kai-Ren is still watching, and everything Brady and Cam think they've won, they stand to lose all over again.

Ready for a teasing non-con cock tease? Ms. Henry once again fools me into thinking this book is going to have some arousing erotic non-con with the Faceless taking liberties upon Brady and Cam. Denied! Brady and Cam are back on Earth. They are now together and with Lucy, Brady's sister. They are drones on a military base. Brady's chip on his shoulder is so large that it is an impressive feat for him to even get out of bed.

The first half of the book, I'm thinking Ms. Henry should not have written a sequel because the first book's "happily ever after" just tanked. Brady is in a whiny fighting-against-everyone mode. He comes across as the victim all the time. His actions are all counterproductive and I just want to smack some sense into the boy. Why Cam puts up with Brady's shit, I don't know. I'm almost about to give up on the book and give the book a one star. Plowing forward, I am determined to finish it because I love Ms. Henry.

Fortunately, the story gets better when Brady's nightmares increase with Cam, Lucy and the alien Kai-Ren featuring in them. Rubbing my hands together, I'm hoping that Brady will guiltily submit to some anal rape whilst Cam watches. Or maybe there will be a forced threeway! No. No such luck. The least Ms. Henry can do is bribe me with hot non-con sex. But I am left without a bribe.

So why did I still really enjoy this book? The action finally picks up the last half of the book as it becomes clear why Brady and Cam were stuck in the positions on Earth. Cam's ex-lover's appearance also makes sense. Going back into the "black" where Brady absolutely hates it is when the pace picks up and all the good stuff happens. Brady ceases his whiny bitch mode. The Faceless are back and the readers are treated to a bigger glimpse into their culture. And, it turns out the Faceless do have a sense of humour.

I loved the last part of the book. The ending makes it appear that there will be another book in this series. Hopefully in the next one, we'll see the attitude adjusted Brady and more Kai-Ren. I have given up hope for any dirty depraved alien anal probing. This space opera is recommended for m/m readers who enjoy bratty characters and an alien twist.
