Regeneration by Louise Lyons 4*
BLURB:In the 23rd Century in the galaxy of Sigma Kappa, Kim Fortune was the first surviving experimental enhanced human—a regenerate. Aged fifteen, he escaped the lab and years later, his failings as a regenerate and the suspicion of regular humans, leave him lonely and lacking in self-worth. Stranded on an abandoned planet, the arrival of a stricken ship and its crew give him hope that he may finally find what he always longed for—love.
Christian Novak is a successful regenerate with all the intended attributes—including lack of human emotion. Despite their immediate attraction to each other, Kim's failing confidence, and Christian's inability to empathize are a recipe for disaster. But war, imprisonment, and danger throw them together, and after each saves the other's life, their feelings begin to change.
Can a seemingly unsuitable pair ever find love, or is a future together destined to fail?
My Review: First off, I need to say I got this book through Signal Boost Promotions so that I could review it. Secondly, I suggest that if you enjoy a decent Science Fiction M/M Romance that you pre-order it immediately - because this one hits all the right notes! I honestly don't want to give away any more spoilers than are in the blurb so this will be a short review by necessity. There is so much that happens to both MCs and you can actually feel the growth in their relationship with each other. In addition, the secondary characters aren’t neglected since they are just as well rounded! I want them as my friends - well all of them except one of the bad guys who is absolutely horrible.
