Publisher's Summary

Golan is pillaging the galaxy, harvesting planets for their Synthnic, and destroying entire civilizations. The Renegade, a loose-knit band of thieves, warriors, and refugees, are the only force standing in his way.
Lily is a commander in the Renegade and leads a small team that focuses on relocating civilizations before their planets are destroyed. During an ambush Lily comes face to face with Ulrick, one of Golan's strongest generals, and a fire ignites inside her that threatens to consume her.
Ulrick has lived his life trying to redeem himself; to ensure that his sacrifices were not for nothing. He has grown tired of the fear he sees in people's eyes, and of the destruction, but the time has come when he will finally make his move.
Ulrick had long ago given up on the idea that his match existed, until one day the stagnant markings on his arm begin to churn.
While ancient Hilian rituals demand that the two are meant to be together, time and war have dirtied what may have once been a whirlwind romance.

A Matched Made In Heaven ....Umm I Mean The Stars!


May Contain Spoilers:
L. H Whitlock delivered a story that reminded me of a mix between Lisa Lace, Mychael Daniels, and Eve Langlais. This Sci-Fi romance had a good mix of action, humor, and some romance. I really enjoyed the characters, and all the humor. Not all the characters were whom they seemed, and you had to question some of their motives. Lily (the heroine) was strong, spunky, and had a great sense of humor. Out of all the characters she had me laughing the most. At first, I wasn't sure what to think of the hero, Ulrick. He was cold, and came across as a cruel leader, but as he relentlessly searched for his "Match," you start to see other layers to his personality. He was very patient, and caring with Lily.

The plot was well thought out, but the execution had me confused at times. I found myself having to rewind several times. One thing that really had me confused was the relationship between Brock and Lilly, were they friend with benefits or ex-lovers? The world building was mixed. There were some things that were really creative and alien in nature, while other things were just normal. I would have loved to seen more creativity around the world building. But compared to other sci-fi romances, it was a step up. I will be on the lookout for the next book in the series.

Anna Crowe did a great job with the narration. I loved all her female characters, and the male characters were good; however, I suggest practicing with a deeper voice or a using a more prominent inflection and tones for the male characters.... But still, it was a great performance.

I received this audio in exchange for an honest review, and do think this is a great KU/whispersync deal.
