Handsome Hero Wanted - Review and Giveaway

James is stopping by today to share the first book in his Handsome Heroes series, so read on to discover book 1, Handsome Hero Wanted.

Book Blurb: 
Five men.

One harem.

Drayton Starberg takes his ship to the planet Falla Bray to join a harem in hopes of scoring money to fix up his old space ship. He has to compete with four other human like species to please the king and be chosen to use his DNA for the new heir. Problem is, each of the other males are growing on him and the king is having a hard time picking just one.

Who will be the king’s handsome hero?

Be Warned: menage sex (MMMMMM), BDSM, rimming, m/m sex, orgies

My Review:
4 stars

I'll just say to start, I'm not usually a big menage fan, especially when you add more than 3 people, as characters can get left out, issues arise, etc. That being said, I had to give this book a try, because I'm a huge sci-fi fan. And how can you not want to give the book a try once you read the blurb? But somewhere along the way, a book that I though was going to be so-so turned out to be way better.

The setting was great, but the characters stole the show for me. I enjoyed getting to meet the king and all the men in the harem. To say they were colorful characters would be an understatement. I don't want to give too much away, but let's just say, I can't wait to read the future books in the series to revisit these characters (cough *Lavender* cough). 

Now, pay attention to the warnings, because when it says orgies, James Cox delivers. Now, often too much sex can ruin a story or get boring, leading to me skipping sex scenes, but I didn't run into that problem much while reading. Sure, some scenes were a bit repetitive, but they actually did somewhat further the plot, leading to the twist ending I didn't expect when I started reading (not giving any spoilers away, so if you want to know, you'll have to read the book).

All in all, this was a fun, light read that made me laugh and kept me entertained. If you're looking for something light and fluffy or if you're looking to get all hot and bothered, I would definitely recommend giving Handsome Hero Wanted a read.

James is offering an e-book copy of Handsome Hero Wanted to one lucky winner. All you need to do is comment to enter. Contest ends November 7.

I’m bisexual. I love men, women, reading, dogs (not in that way, you freak.) I like cats but they’re always giving me the evil eye. Yes, I do believe in God, so no ‘God hates gays’ mail, please. I detest smiley faces and people who talk on the phone while they’re driving. I have a crush on my boss who doesn’t know I’m bi and always staring at his ass. I love writing, particularly when it takes place in other worlds or galaxies. I only have m/m books out but one day I’ll venture into pussy territory. I always wanted to paint nude men.
