Living in the future is confusing enough for Mo without the pressure of Mykel claiming they’re mates. He doesn’t want a long-term lover or mate. Mo’s lost a loved one before and isn’t willing to open up his heart again.  

Mykel feels just the opposite and willingly leaves his old life behind to be with his destined mate. Except leaving his family hasn’t worked out how Mykel thought. Mo doesn’t want him and it’s tearing Mykel’s heart into pieces.  

Little changes between them until a trip planet-side goes bad, endangering Mo and the men accompanying him. It’s against the better judgment of the law-quoting Mykel but he can’t leave his man in peril. He and the other mates run to the rescue but it doesn’t turn out as they planned, but it opens Mo’s eyes to the possibilities staring him in the face - the chance at a future filled with love and happiness if he’s brave enough to reach out and grab it. 

What Once Was Lost is the latest release in the Lady Blue Crew series by Stormy Glenn and Lynn Hagen. It’s takes up shortly after the last book left off and because of the continuing story line I recommend they be read in order. 

I admit it. I’ve always been a sucker for a good science fiction story and I’ve enjoyed this series from the beginning. It’s not any different with this new release following Mo and Mykel. In fact, here not only do we get a romance and three new characters but some of the plot threads left dangling from previous releases get answered. But as expected more surprises come to light, heightening the danger level even more. I don’t know where this portion of the story is going but I can’t wait to see what happens next in Simply Perfect, featuring two new characters. 

Now back to Mo and Mykel. These two are so different from each other. Mo is a do-anything-to-survive kind of guy, while Mykel quotes law. The authors did a great job developing their personalities and the difficulties in their relationship. Most of Mo’s problems stem from his strange miscommunications and misunderstandings in his new environment. It’s really pretty funny. Getting him together with Mykel is satisfying and the sex is sizzling hot. Enjoy!
