Blurb: When a distant planet’s ownership is in dispute, conquering aliens turn defiant human males into pampered sex slaves.
In a not-too-distant future, a lopsided war has led to aliens invading and occupying an Earth settlement. Wid is a young colonist who has been caught harassing the aliens. He and his friends are rounded up and sent to an alien warship patrolling the disputed space. His fate is to serve as a sex slave for the ship’s imposing captain.
Wid, at first, fights against his enslavement, but soon learns that not only does he stand no chance against the much larger and stronger captain, he isn’t sure he even wants to.
Like all Travian males, Kell is bound by duty to defend his people. Having risen to the rank of captain, he nevertheless chafes against the boring and endless patrol of the space invaded by the humans. His misses his family and constantly guards against his scheming first officer. He sees his reward of a human sex slave as more of a nuisance. Yet the pretty, fair-haired human’s exotic allure is hard to resist. He finds far more pleasure in the use of his pet than he would like.
Kept naked and leashed, Wid’s days are filled with boredom, while his nights wrapped in Kell’s arms turn from fear into pleasure. Even as the humans plot their escape, Wid and Kell form a bond and their growing affection cannot be ignored. When tensions boil over among the aliens, Wid and his friends may be Kell and his crew’s only chance for survival.

Review: This review may contain spoilers. Also the Reader Advisory is very real and very serious. So if rape is a trigger please don’t read this book.
Wid is a twenty year old human male living on an Earth colony with his family. Things were rough but the humans were making the new world work. Until the Travians came and claimed that the once uninhabited world belonged to the.
I’m not going to lie. This book starts out as straight up rape. Then moves to dubious-consent. At no point is there really a part where Wid is completely on board with everything. At least I don’t think so.
I felt bad for Wid and the situation he got himself into. For being a stupid boy he was forced into the life of a sex slave. No matter what feeling developed between him and Kell, he will always be considered a sex slave. Even as Wid comes to enjoy the forced sex, I still felt skived out a bit. When Wid started to fall for Kell, I really didn’t know what to think.
I was not very impressed with Kell. He called Wid an “it” for a good portion, besides the raping deal. The Travians are a matriarchal society, so the women are in charge and the men are the military. Kell has a female mate that he loves and misses. However in their world men are allowed to have male sex partners, or pets. He only raped Wid in the start to make sure his scent was marking him, and to keep his stature at receiving such a gift as a human pet.
Even through an almost mild emotional bond forms between Kell and Wid, there is never going to really be more. So this left me at loose ends. I read through all the rape scenes, Wid being lashed like an animal, the descriptions of what the other humans went through, and all to be left feeling let down.
I want a happy ending with my stories, and this gives maybe a happy for now deal. As this is billed as a series, I am really hoping for more in the next book.
