Publisher's Summary

Welcome back to Charybdis Station and the crew of the Blue Solace in the fifth book in this series.  

Beck Brackenstone is a simple Grell. He loves his family and friends and enjoys tinkering in his shop. His greatest dream is to meet his life-mate, settle down, and raise a bunch of babies. When he finally does meet his mate, he realizes how completely unprepared he really is. How do you court an assassin? How do you keep your brain from melting when your mate smiles? 

Guild Master Beol is not a simple man. He runs one of the most prominent assassins guilds in the galaxy and has a troubled past. He has responsibilities and contracts to worry about and no time for a mate. When he meets Beck, that all changes. His Grell completely bewitches him and sparks something inside him that he thought died a long time ago. The problem is that Beck has secrets that even his most trusted friends don't know, and Beol has some major trust issues.  

The two men may appear to be a horrible match, but in truth, they are perfect for one another. Unfortunately, the Crellic Queen and Humans First are terrorizing the galaxy and Charybdis Station is their next target. They will need to trust one another and their friends to end the queen's path of destruction once and for all.  

Author's note: This is a sci-fi/fantasy, m/m love story with no angst and no cheating, just a HEA. There is lots of action, a little sex, male pregnacny, and a few potty mouths involved in the story. 18+ listeners only, please. It is also the fifth book in a series that is best listened to in order. Listen to The Mercenary's Mate, The General's Mate, The Soldier's Mate, and The Lieutenant's Mate first.

Excellent narrator with a fun action story.

This is a great series! I can't believe that each book gets better the more you listen to them. Not may books out there like these. A great treasure in my audible library. I return to this series when I want to listen to an easy fun romance. Each mc is relatable loving. Never dull or boring something is always happening. I can't reccomend this series enough.

Enjoyed for the third time.

As we enjoyed Beck and Beol story the main story continues. I’ve read the books twice and now collecting the audio. Such as difference with the audible. It makes it fun hearing it. Though the way C. W. Gray writes the books come alive in your mind. Would highly recommend this series and her others.

Loved it

Beck is awesome! He is so sweet and now one of my favorites. Princess Buttercup is still my favorite pet but Dr. Bloop comes close. I'd love to see more of Stardust. I can't wait to see what happens next!

My favorite of the series!

Now this one is so far my favorite of the series! Beck and Beoi are so cute together. I love that Beck is just what Beoi needs. And Connor Brown does another amazing job in pulling me into the story. C.W. Gray pick the perfect narrator for this series.

Cute and action packed

I love the story especially the main pairing; they are such an adorable couple. I'm always fond of stories where good relationships with family and friends are highlighted.

I liked listening to the narrator's voice; it was easy to follow the story.

showdown

Beck breathed life into Beol's empty soul and gave him hope. No matter how dark the scenario, the ending is positive and the story is woven with laughter and tears. Battles, losses, some major evil is defeated finally, and the survivors regroup. I love the wierd beautiful world building. The dates and animals- awesomeness!! The narrator did a good job.

as good as the ebook

The story is always 4 or 5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B
