Paxton Chambers lived from hand to mouth for years, despising what he was forced to do in order to survive, so when he was offered a job on the Lady Blue, he jumps at the chance to better his life. Living on the ship is different and it gives him a good friend in Gigi, but he has trouble keeping up with their odd speech patterns, making him think he’s not as intelligent as everyone else. 

But crew member, Colt Walking Cloud likes everything about the little blue-skinned man and when the deadly sniper discovers Pax is his mate, he set out to win the skittish man’s heart. When the Lady Blue is infested with slug-like worms that carry a lethal mucous, Colt will do anything to keep his mate safe. The crew needs to eradicate the pests before they spread throughout the ship, and the only one getting in their way is his kind-hearted Pax, who doesn’t want the slimy creatures killed.  

Pax’s Blues is the second release in Lady Blue Crew, the futuristic shape-shifter series by Lynn Hagen and Stormy Glenn. It’s another entertaining, lighthearted and fun read. The author development of the character personalities is nicely done. Pax is a quiet and reserved guy but he’s cute too, and watching his frustration as he tries to understand some of what is going on around him is a hoot. He just doesn’t get the odd pieces of conversation…the slang…and it makes him feel like an idiot.

Colt is big, dominant and possessive, likes everything about Pax and wants to claim his little blue-skinned mate but allows Pax the time he needs to get comfortable with him first. But once claimed…their sex life is hot…and frequent. Then there’s the weird and wacky situations the crew manages to get into. This time, it’s problems with slugs with a lethal mucous like slime. The scenes with Pax and Gigi scanning the ship while holding spatulas from the gallery had me chuckling. I look forward to the next release, Imlay’s Cure.
