Review: The 5th Gender: A Tinkered Stars Mystery by G.L. Carriger (2019)

Heat Factor: Explicit M/M action. Where one of the characters is an alien with erogenous prehensile hair. I would call it hentai adjacent. (Mom, please do NOT Google hentai.) (Note: After writing this, I Googled hentai, and according to Wikipedia, I am using the term incorrectly. What I mean is: Tentacles.)

Character Chemistry: Sudden.

Plot: Alien and Space Station Detective bone and also solve a mystery.

Overall: Started charming, ended preachy.

Review: The Corsair’s Captive by Ruby Dixon (2017)

Corsairs, Book 1

Heat Factor: You won’t want to admit that it’s actually doing anything for you, but it kind of will. You don’t have to tell anyone.

Character Chemistry: Good stuff, considering the interspecies complications.

Plot: Human slave woman is rescued by giant blue alien pirate! And of course they fall in love and it’s not at all weird!

Overall: Listen, if you can get past the horns and the tail and the weird blue scales…okay, if you can get past the owner/slave dynamic…okay. So it’s weird. But you won’t NOT love it.
