Giovanni Gallardo’s on the run. He thought taking a starship as far away from Earth as possible was a good idea until he arrives at a backwater planet at the far edge of the galaxy. When he arrives at End of the Line, he starts to question his decision. He’s alone, afraid and doesn’t know what to do when he gets caught in a firefight, forcing him to take refuge on a strange ship.

Commander Remy Vystal and the crew of the Lady Blue were once members of the Elite Force. After being accused of something they didn’t do, they were forced out and now they fly all over the galaxy, doing black market jobs in order to survive. When Remy sets eyes on Gigi, his protective instincts go crazy and he soon discovers the little human is his mate. When the past haunting Gigi catches up with him, it means Remy and the crew have to fight to keep his mate safe from the man who’s put a bounty on all their heads. 

End of the Line is a really good start to the new series Lady Blue Crew by Lynn Hagen and Stormy Glenn. The story’s well written and does a great job introducing this new world and the interesting individuals that call the ship home. Its action packed, has a smooth pace, and plenty of sizzling hot sex between hunky bad-ass Remy and cutie-pie Gigi.  

Remy is a big, burly wolf shifter, while Gigi is a typical small man in need of a protective mate. They make for an interesting couple…forced to deal with an abundance of danger in their new life together, but the authors also crafted some lighter moments and witty dialogue. I just about cracked up with the scenes of the man-eating replicator and the mess hall filled with foam. That is just one example of the creative skills used by the authors to balance the fun versus more serious aspects of the story. Look for Pax’s Blues next.
