Regi's Huuman (Gods of Misfortune #1) by Lyn Gala

What a fun new world Lyn Gala has blessed us with in Regi's Huuman!   

From the blurb:

Regi has settled into a comfortable life away from his home and family and gods. By choosing to leave
the Empire, he chose to leave all those behind and live alone and godless. He still claimed to follow Poque, goddess of wanderers, but he doesn't expect her to notice him as he serves on Coalition ships. However, when an improbable series of events strands his ship near a black hole with no engines, no communication, and a pirate ship in the area, he must wonder if the gods' first blessing—misfortune—has found him. If so, he needs to find the second blessing that follows, or the entire crew will die.

Dante had a rather uncomfortable life until aliens kidnapped him, and then it turned downright miserable, but when a ship shows up claiming to be law-enforcement from the Coalition, he wonders if life might improve. The security chief is kind with an expressive face and velvety skin, not that he's noticing any of that. It's just that he's been alone for a long time and having someone touch him with kindness is stirring feelings Dante hasn't felt for a long time. However, he doesn't have time for foolishness when they're on a pirate ship and trying to escape certain death. Danger first, deciding how to ask an alien out on a date second.

Jacqueleen the Reading Queen's Review:

This wasn't really a romance per say, but it laid the groundwork for one. The world building is a bit complicated. Add in Regi's culture/gods and I found myself needing to reread certain parts more carefully so I understood. But once I got through that, the story flowed quickly and I found myself at the ending wanting so much more. 

It didn't end on an actual cliffhanger, but the ending leaves us knowing there is more to Regi's adventure with the human at his side. 

I can't wait to get to know these characters more. Even the side characters were interesting and I hope we get more information on their backgrounds in the next book as well.
