Publisher's Summary

Attacked as a young adult, Jewel is left scarred and alone. She applies to the 1Night Stand service, believing no one can see past her appearance to love her. But she doesn't expect to be sent to a space station where her date could be any number of unusual alien species.

Flavia left everything behind to be one of five humans working for the Space Service space station. Extremely homesick, she is excited to learn she will be a guide to a woman from Earth visiting the station for a couple days. She is immediately drawn to the petite woman, seeing past her scars to her true inner beauty, stirring unforeseen desires.

Unfortunately, Jewel is there for a date which Flavia hasn't been told about. Can she contain her lust and simply show her a good time? Or will she let her desire lead them into an unknown future?

Enjoyable

Jewel is badly scarred from an acid attack by a boy she rejected. Her mother is dead and her father cares more about his girlfriend. The community she lives in avoids her like she's got the plague and no one will give her a job. In frustration she applies for a one night stand with Madame Eve's service and is sent to a space station.

This is where she meets Vi. Vi has to leave behind everyone she knows when she came to work at the space station. she has a lifetime contract and can't go back but she misses Earth. When Jewel shows up on the station, they are attracted to each other. But Jewel is supposed to be there on a date with another person and only for a limited time. Is is possible to build on their desire for each other even with such an uncertain and temporary set up?

This was a lovely and easy listen. In fact I managed to get through the story in the time it took me to make pancakes for breakfast for the family this morning. The narrator managed to paint the pictures in my head easily and the steamy scene was hot. Looking forward to more from this author.

good Story

I liked the story but the narrator's voice wasn't very comfortable listening too. I mean I heard literally every breath she took.

okay

I was gifted this Audible Copy in exchange for an honest review.
Jule is a girl with destroyed self esteem who wants nothing more than what every other person craves...love. She has opted to try a dating service to have her needs met since she has been unable to hold the attention of any person.

This story is a set in a mix of earth and a space ship where multiple alien creatures live. Jule is transported to the space station for her "date" and is introduced to a whole new world. Her eyes are opened to a future she did not see possible.

While a novella, this is a complete story. The characters each have their own quirks and the reader is not left feeling confused. It is GLTB, which is not a problem for me as a reader, but the whole thing was bland for me in the fact that Jule spends most of the book having a pity party. I just struggle with weak women.
The narrator did well with separating out characters but at times used the voices of the character when she should have been using a steady flow voice for background story.
