Thanks to the publisher & Netgalley for the complimentary e-ARC and the publisher for the complimentary hard copy. All opinions provided are my own.
Yesterday I shared some memes about “just once to get it out of our systems” & it might have been on my brain because of this book, Capture the Sun by Jessie Mihalik.
Our poor lust-stricken leads try that around 20% & gee, I’m so sorry it doesn’t work ;).
Why are they so determined to do it once? Lexi Bowen, a recovery specialist (read: basically a thief, for good sometimes but often for money), feels like she was previously betrayed by Nilo Shoren. Not letting herself be vulnerable with too many, Lexi feels doubly wounded by what he did.
So in this book our leads come back together & amidst various little misunderstandings & the memory of Nilo’s past actions they try to do it *just once.*
Space opera lovers, fans of (eventual) solid communication, & those interested in a scene where a heroine has an orgasm stimulated by a mental experience the hero gives her might be into this one.
There are moments when this book—like others I’ve read by the author—feels too bogged down by detail & I struggle to concentrate, but overall these adventures are fun & steamy & feature leads who are brave in pursuit of what they think is right, thieves or not.
4⭐️. Out 06/20.

Give me that HEA, please.
