Worn down by the pesky Corbin’s resolve, Emmanuel accepts Corbin’s bribe and calls off the hit. But the truce might not last. Emmanuel’s mounting desires for Corbin cause problems. He refuses to allow anyone close enough to become intimate with him, especially someone like Corbin.
Yet with each smile and soft kiss, Emmanuel’s emotional shield is dismantled piece by piece.

Review: This is the second book in A Planet Called Wish. Corbin loves his life on Wish. He enjoys helping others in any way. Emmanuel is a bounty hunter sent to kill Corbin by one of his own clients.
Emmanuel is gruff and almost emotionless. At first he seems creepy until more is revealed about him. He falls for Corbin but doesn’t like what he does for a living. Which is totally understandable as most don’t want to be with someone permanently who sleeps with others while they’re with you.
Corbin is at a loss as he wants to be with Emmanuel but wants to keep doing what he’s doing. Which I thought was kinda selfish. I was confused as to why Corbin didn’t tell Monroe who had hired the bounty hunter when he found out. After all it was someone who frequented the establishment and that meant putting others in jeopardy.
Although it was a well written story with an interesting plot, I felt it was drawn out at times when there was no need for it to be.
All in all it was an o.k. read that takes the reader into the life of Corbin as his life slowly changes.
