Publisher's Summary

Welcome back to Charybdis Station and the crew of the Blue Solace in the fourth book in the series.

Sebastian Dolarnio has a past. His parents sold him into indentured servitude when he was 17 which led him to enforced prostitution. Fortunately, with the help of some very good friends, he and his daughter are safe and have a home - a beautiful, accepting place with more family than he ever dreamed of having. Then there's his mate. A handsome, wonderful man calls Sebastian "mate", and Sebastian knows he doesn't deserve him. He has to find a way to be worthy of his new home and his new mate. A strange Crellic book provides him with the answer to his problems, but it comes with complications of its own. 

Alois has been dreaming of finding his life mate since he was a kid. He knows that Sebastian is a dream come true, but how can he convince his mate of that and also fight the baggage he carries from his own past? When Sebastian begins a strange, wonderful journey, Alois knows that he has to be the loving and supportive mate that Sebastian deserves. 

The two men build a life together and learn to love one another, but the galaxy is in turmoil, and Charybdis Station is in the middle of it all.  

Author's Note: This is a male-male love story with no angst and no cheating, just a HEA. There is lots of action, some sex, male pregnancy, and a few potty mouths involved in the story. Only listeners 18 and above, please. It is the fourth book in a series that is best listened to in order. Listen to The Mercenary's Mate, The General's Mate, and The Soldier's Mate first!

I love this series and what a great message

I could go on and wax poetic about writing and characters and MM romance and sci-fi romance and mpreg but even if that is or isn't your thing, what I have found above all the great story telling in these books is acceptance. The author doesn't just make the MM romance accepting but the normal within whatever your society is. They also show how if you don't have a family or friends, you find them. You cobble together your tribe and the more open minded you are, the more accepting you are, the more you grow your heart and only happiness will follow. There will be people who don't approve but the people who do will completely outweigh those that don't. And all you have to do is find that tribe, those people that will love and protect you then wrap them around you as your shield against the haters and let love win. Thank you to the author. These stories and this huge family are soooooo needed right now ❤️🧡💛💚💙💜

good one!

I've said before that I love this series despite all the demon spawn... I mean kids present in it, and I still stand by that. It's so refreshing to see how Alois and Sebastian's mating plays out. The insta attraction is there but the forced separation makes the relationship development so much more real.
I also love how they begin to bring back a little of the culture of a long dead race. even if it's just a tiny bit. As an archaeology and history nut it would be a dream come true to be able to do this with some of earth's ancient populations.

The Lieutenant's Mate

As Sebastian and Alois are figuring out just how they fit together they must also deal with the continuous threat of the Queen and her elements.

Alois and Sebastian’s story is a nice continuation of this series. It was nice to see the way their relationship blossomed, and I enjoyed the camaraderie that all the characters have. All the people coming together to help fight against a common enemy. Alongside the fighting and the action, we get to see the softer side of the men as they spend time together. The author does a nice job of keeping this series going while keeping each story fresh. Narrator Connor Brown keeps the story moving at a good pace and kept me engaged in the story.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

pretty good sci-fi

Overall I enjoyed this audiobook. I didn't realize when I started listening that it is part of a series that needs to be read in order so I was a bit lost. Once I caught on a bit, I enjoyed the story. There's a lot going on, but I love the chosen family theme and the overall plot. The narration.... was ok. There are a lot of characters, to- be fair to the narrator, but it was hard to tell who was speaking, even the two main characters. And often the delivery was rushed? At first I checked to make sure it wasn't on 1.5x speed. Like, the dialogue was rushed but the words around it weren't. It was jarring.

as good as the ebook

The story is always 4 or 5 stars, because if I wouldn't like the story as ebook, I wouldn't listen to the audiobook.

The performance from the narrator is also very important for me. I can't listen to a lot, because my English as a non-native-speaker isn't so perfect to follow a whole story over hours, when the narrator speaks too fast or too sloppy. Normally I have to SEE the person, who is talking to me in English. It took me a little bit, to come into the narrator, but at the end, it worked. I only have to take a few breaks between. I'm just not yet finish with the book, but I listen enough to give a review.

PLEASE READ MY RATING SYSTEM!!!

To my ratings:

5* - very very good
it's like an A+

4* - very good and will be often re-listening
it's like an A

3* - it's more then a one-time-listening.
it's like a B
