The basic rough diamond good guy meets big hearted whore is kind of familiar, but the involuntary shapeshifter nature of the whore is a fascinating complication. I love that in spite of being slight and his nature makes him vulnerable, but he is no damsel in distress and is quite capable of rescuing himself.
This story is a bit cheesy but it is good fun.
The setting and some characters are reminiscent of the show Firefly, with the space bandit with a conscience and not-in-great-shape ship. I very much identified Jedd’s character with Captain Mal from that show, mostly due to Jedd’s moral character and cocky attitude. The fact that I was making these associations made me even more inclined to like the story.
It made me sad to see how Storm was used by those who he’d been held by before, even more so because he seemed resigned to that fate, even once he was with Jedd. The abilities that Storm possessed were unique and put a fascinating twist on the story. I interpreted that Storm’s appearance when in the form that matched Jedd’s fantasy so closely matched what Storm believed his actual form to be to mean that Jedd was more interested and strongly attracted to WHO Storm is, not WHAT he is.
Storm and Jedd form an easy connection, and I loved that they both felt protective toward each other, especially Jedd when Storm was in trouble. I’m also looking forward to the author exploring Jedd’s seeming acquiescence to Storm when things became physically intimate.
The action and suspense fully kept my attention, and I wound up reading this straight through because I did not want to put it down. There were also some great supporting characters—some who don’t act as you might expect when you’re first introduced to them—and I hope we get to see several of them return in future books in the series. The story ends on a good note; more a happy-for-now with the promise of more stories to come, and there’s plenty of ends to be tied up so I’d probably classify it as a cliffhanger, but a satisfying one.
The Perfect Whore gets 5 stars from me, and the author has me well and truly hooked for this series. If you’re an M/M sci-fi adventure romance fan—especially if you like shows like Firefly—you’ll definitely want to pick this one up! This story is meant for readers 18+ for adult language and sexual content.
We’ve got Captain Jedd Lightning (who gave me some serious Han Solo vibes) and Storm, two very different folks who find themselves thrown together by circumstance, a botched job for a criminal boss that brings Jedd to Storm’s room at an exclusive brothel. Storm is Jiali, an alien race whose body becomes that of the ideal lover of whoever sees and touches them. For Jedd, he is Storm, a human male with a body that happens to vaguely resemble that Storm remembers as his true form. Together, they escape the brothel and embark on a dangerous mission to save Jedd’s friend, and their own hides.
Like I said, most of this book you can’t take too seriously. For example, I rolled my eyes a bit at some of the “criminal activity” and the convenient ways the story came together. But it was an incredibly enjoyable read. The setting was vivid, side characters three-dimensional and great additions to the story, the humor was on point, and it raised some interesting questions on gender, consent, sex and morality. I enjoyed watching Jedd and Storm feel their way around each other, find out what they were comfortable with, what they weren’t, and the things they need to work on, together and individually.
This doesn’t end on a cliffhanger, per se, but it definitely leaves a few questions unanswered and sets up what I think will be a great series that I can’t wait to continue.
