Space Stars by Mell Eight

"Something a bit different in Space Stars. Not a romance but a lot of fun." Jacquie on Space Stars.

From the Blurb:

This book is two short stories with one thing in common—the stars in space shine brightly, whether you’re on planet or soaring on a ship.

Cole’s star is rising like a rocket as his band tours the galaxies to sing to their adoring fans. Except, Cole’s real job isn’t lead vocals—it’s espionage.

Tarle’s star fell long ago after a horrific accident during a mecha showcase event for his new robot. Then he meets Aster, a porn star on the run. Hiding away together is far more appealing than being alone, but no one can hide forever. 

Jacquie's Review:

First of all, this is not a romance though there is a romantic relationship in the second story.

The stories work well together since they are set in thr same world have have characters briefly appearing in each story.

I really enjoyed the espionage of the first one. Cole was easy to like and I loved how dedicated he was to his husband. They are apart for the entire story but we do hear about them in the second.

The next tale was pretty cool with the robot races and redemption. Aster is an ex porn star on the run. Tarle is trying to get his life back after a race went wrong. The romance there is very much a subplot and there is no steam aside from mention of acts that Starr has performed for work.

Something a bit different with great characters.
