Publisher's Summary

Every year, Jathan One-Moon faces increasing pressure that he marry and have children. What Jathan really wants is a male mate that can enjoy both playful sex and his more dominant nature. To tame his stress, Jathan orders a male escort from Spice 'n' Solace, the premier male brothel in the Galactic Alliance - and is thrilled to be sent a man whose air of innocence and obvious desire for Jathan arouse him like never before.

Jathan doesn't know he has mistaken Kazha Deinos, the owner of Spice 'n' Solace, as his escort. Kaz doesn't intend to pleasure Jathan personally, but his powerful masculinity is irresistible. Kaz has dreamed of a man who'd take charge and indulge his hidden cravings-a man just like Jathan.

With their explosive passion and unexpected tenderness, Jathan and Kaz soon want to stay together - if Jathan's position and Kaz's secrets don't tear them apart...

Awesome K.C. Burn book!

First.. this is m/m romance... duh... (look at the book cover)...

Second...K.C. Burn is awesome... If you have listen to Alien Outlaw... then the alien from that book reappear briefly in this one... A good read/listen...

Very enjoyable...well worth a credit, buy or sale..

Narration was great!

Nice surprise

I enjoyed this novella, but it was a little too short; but it packs a lot in. The MCs relationship is sweet but also very hawt. Lots of smex but it is done well. This is the first book before Alien and the Outlaw (which I listened to first). Doesn't really matter, both are stand alone reads. The narrator is very good in both. It was under $5 when I bought it and worth it at that price, but it is not worth a credit.

This is a great story with great narration.

I think I picked this audiobook up when Audible had a sale. It's been in my library for a little over a year and I'm sorry I waited so long to listen to it. Unless he also narrates under another name, Spice 'N' Solace is the first audiobook I've listened to by Richard Magnus and I think he did a great job. I enjoyed the different voices he used and his voice was easy to listen to. I'm a huge Star Trek fan but I don't tend to read/listen to sci-fi romance; I'm not really sure why. There were things in this story that reminded me of a few different Star Trek episodes but only in passing; the story is in not a retelling of any particular one. The premise of a brothel for men in a society that seems to be against male-male relationships was interesting. I thought there was fantastic chemistry between the two lead characters, Kazha and Jathan. What starts out as mistaken identity soon grows into something really special between them. I like this story enough that I promptly started listening to book two. (Both books can be read as standalone stories.)

Not worth the slog, this was so boring

This book was incredibly average and borderline boring. I did not like this non-existent plot, non-existent romance and non-existent characters. Everyone was very cookie cutter personality, i could not distinguish really one character from the other as there was just no personality anywhere. It was just so frustrating waiting for something to happen. I kept tolerating it hoping for something to happen. There are some Erotic moments, but this slog of a story doesn't make it worth it at all. You really have to deal with a lot of nothing happening and a incredibly boring book to be 'rewarded' with a Erotic moment. Honestly it was hardly a reward, i just was so numb when something sexy happened from being bored out of my mind for so long. Luckily this book was short, so i didn't feel like i wasted my time. I hated these characters, like, this is probably the worst writing I've ever seen for characters. I wish someone had a personality everyone acted so mechanical =/

Short and Hot!!! 🔥🔥

3 Stars This was a sweet enough sci-fi, off-world book about mistaken identities, sex workers, and preserving the human race. Quite they plot plot ya, eh? It was insta-love—one to two days? Wham! Forever is here! Had a very quick wrap -up, some steamy D/s-ish scenes, and a poppin’ o’ the stellar cherry for the brothel owner. Fun for all involved! The audiobook was decent, although it was hard to distinguish characters at times. It was also weird how submissive Kaz got even though he was a toughened brothel empresario. Maybe the shirt length didn’t aid in developing deep characters. Either way, I’m listening to the second one which involves a purple alien. Why are all aliens purple in MM romance?

Alien MxM porn with plot

Narrator was a bit whiny. Story was was quite hot and had a pit of plot. Not bad for a romance package. But I wouldn't reread.

Hot and Spicy

This book has a lot going on in a short amount of time. Not only is the relationship between the two main characters fast to develop and leaves your heart swelling with love for the tension these two face. It also has a lot of character development with both facing an identity crisis and standing up for yourself and others who can't stand up on their own. I was happy to see these two characters get their well deserved happily ever afters. The narrators performance is excellent and really makes the story come alive.
