Balancing Karma by I.D. Locke 5*
BLURB: Karma has it in for Moswen. Trouble follows him around like a demented, faithful dog. Moswen never means for things to happen the way they do. It just does. And while things may seem bad at first, everything eventually works out for the best even if the road to getting there is a less than a smooth ride.
While fleeing his sister's wrath for an accident that was almost not his fault, Moswen stumbles upon the chance to crash what promises to be a fun party.
Kijika is hopeful that the birthday bash for his grandfather, the current king, won't be the deadly boring event he's sure it will be and he'd much rather be pouring over ancient texts in his quest for knowledge. Moswen's karma swings into action and Moswen and Kijika cross paths at the party setting in motion a relationship that will give both men what they most desire.
My Review: This one took me a while to get through because it is an online read but it was well worth it. The Characters are both well written and very interesting. The alien aspects of culture and form are well described and thought out. The sex scenes were hot and the romance was sweet. Slight spoiler but I feel the need to mention that I loved the male pregnancy and the misunderstandings the hormone problems bring about. If you like hot male on male, non tentacle, sex then this is for you. If you like a well thought out story about alien cultures and interaction this is also for you. In fact I cannot think of a single reason anyone would not want to read this story.
