A Planet Called Wish: Book Four
His attraction to men means Kalean is the black sheep of his wealthy and powerful family—but it won’t get him out of attending his brother’s pretentious wedding ceremony. Kalean doesn’t want to go, but if his parents insist, he has a stipulation: he’ll be there with a man on his arm.
On the pleasure planet, Wish, Kalean goes to a brothel to meet some potential escorts. But the man who captures his attention isn’t one of those on offer….
Descani is as surprised as anyone at Kalean’s attraction to him—and at his own interest in the young man. He’s even more perplexed as a bond begins forming between them.
But a murder rips apart Kalean’s family and redefines his role. He’ll be isolated on his cold and barren home world, far from the warm and colorful planet of Wish—and the arms of the man who’s coming to mean so much to him—unless he can find a way to escape the forces separating them.
I remember finding this series years ago when it first came out and falling in love with the universe it was built in. They’re short and sexy and really feel like full-length books, which makes them even better!
Wish is a pleasure planet that is nothing like any other. Kalean comes from a planet that is the opposite of everything like Wish. He’s the second son of a family all but considered royalty on Merida. They own the one resource that fuels the economy which means they own the planet. A cold and snowy environment that is harsh and unforgiving, much like his family is when it comes to his sexuality.
The meeting between Descani and Kalean was a low key but cute meet. It was no big explosion of attraction but more testing the waters type thing. I liked the open relationship concept in the story as well. It's not something often done, but for Wish and Descani as an aspasian, it made perfect sense for them.
The strife with his parents and brother was well done and made me feel a little bad for Kalean especially with the revelations that were made later on in the book. But the ending was what I saw for him from the start. Truly a good book and a quick, fun series to read!
