Linguist Elios Campbell is thrilled to be granted flight time in a Colonial Guard fighter jet, until he catches sight of his pilot. Spending time with Sender Kinnison holds even more appeal than the flight itself.
Sender's desire for other men is forbidden by his faith and his family. He tries to resist his attraction to Elios, who is unlike anyone he's ever known. When he fails, the incredible sex quickly leads to something deeper, forcing Sender to question his long-held beliefs.
Then, duty calls Sender home to the repressed colony of Themis. Will he be forced to give up a future with Elios to honor the ghosts of his past?

This could be the first of a great series!

I haven't read the print version, but I had already listened to the authors other audiobook, which was a disappointment. So, I was happily surprised after taking a chance with this book.
Quite simply, the narration. The story was different and the characters interesting. But the narrator Charles Carr is so very talented and engaging that he made everything better.
Charles Carr's performance is immediately engaging. His characterizations sound right, and he makes both the lovers accessible and empathetic. The love scenes are passionate and real.
Sender is a very likeable character with surprising depth. I couldn't help caring about his happiness. Even though we meet Elios first and are set up to see things through his perspective at first, Sender quickly became the one I cared about more. His character goes through more changes and therefore he gains more depth and real empathy.
I am VERY disappointed that there are no other books narrated by Charles Carr currently available at audible! Obviously, the narrator can make (or break) a book, especially in this particular genre. I hope more of this narrator's work becomes available soon.
