The Syndicate by Jules Jones & Alex WoolgraveThis is the first time I have read the series by Jules Jones and Alex Woolgrave. Allard was a computer geek with some attitude problem: he doesn't like to receive order and doesn't like to be treat like a number. So he decides to join a crew of stranger people that has made a syndacate. He will be the sysadmin. Vaughan was the crew's engeneering and also the captain, even if he doesn't like the be call "captain". He is an hunk man with a tender heart....
I finished this book last month and should have reviewed it, but things got away from me. Alas.This book is a fun romp. Extremely fast read, no angst, no gripping the sides of the ereader. It was a bit of a trick to find, and it turned out to be a free read, which perplexed me, as I'd have happily paid for it. It's loosely set in space. Well, it's in space, but largely this book is sex. I mean, it's almost all sex. That wore me out after awhile, but the voice is so incredible I hardly cared. The...
Supposedly futristic as it's set on a spaceship but that's never dwelt on. One character is apparently an AI, it's a random fact about him, like the fact he's crap with computers and a vouyer.I gave up at 30% as there was still no hint of a plot line appearing. This is a sexathon. That's all the characters do or talk about, other than the political broadcast for communism.
I read some other books from Jules Jones and I liked them so I picked this one. However I was not mistake but not winning jackpot either. The plot line is based on dynamic of relationship between big asshole and relatively normal man. It worked well and they fucked like rabbits in various kinkier way as book proceeded. Allard was IT specialist whom authors branded as obnoxious geek with foul mouth. That fact is mentioned nearly on every page like something which should nailed in to the brains of...
I'd classify this as erotic romance, meaning a lot more sex than your average romance. A lot more. Though, it's not really a romance. We do have a couple, captain and computer geek, committed to each other. Aboard a space ship. It's more of a science fiction comedy. So, there is a lot of humor amidst the hot M/M sex, but the plot is weak. Very enjoyable, if you don't expect more from the book than what it offers.
If mm space-geek romances where no one takes the whole thing seriously and the author has clearly hung out with too many old-school geeks is your thing then you will love this. I've read it a couple of times now and I still crack up at some of the lines, especially when Harry, the shy voyeur, and Karen, whose obsessed with Really Large Guns, are roaming around.
Besides being hilarious “Syndicate” has very optimistic view of acceptance of homosexuality in distant future. Very happy book
