ARC Review: Sky Hunter by Fae Sutherland

Sky Hunter (Skybound, #3)
From the blurb:

Jeret hasn’t looked back since running away from life as a crown prince and joining the Crux Ansata’s crew, but when the Ansata returns to his home system, he finds his father ill and a traitor maneuvering for control. Now that he’s a full-grown man, he can’t just walk away again.

Letting Jeret escape was the biggest black mark on bounty hunter Dagan Nu’aim’s otherwise distinguished years as a royal guard. When he catches Jeret back in-system, Dagan seizes the chance to regain his lost honor and bring the wayward prince home.

Jeret’s not so sure he wants to go, but the reignition of his old crush on Dagan complicates the issue. As the two unravel a tangled plot against the crown, their old friendship lights up with a fiery new desire. And when the traitor strikes and the two men must choose between duty and freedom, neither is certain which to pick.

Heather's rating:

**3.5 stars**

I just can't highlight that fourth star, I just can't. I want to so badly because there is nothing wrong with this book (or this series) but it just isn't fully connecting for me

The third book in the Skybound series focuses on Jeret's story. Now, was I the only one who was wondering what happened to Kip? There was all of this flirtatious buildup and then... poof! A new love interest is introduced. I was a bit confused about that, actually. Anyway, I have been looking forward to Jeret's story for the whole series so I was doing a little happy dance when I got this book.

Let me ask you guys a question. How can someone get bored reading about a cute twinky guy get boned in outer space? How?! I shocked when, yet again, I started to find my mind drifting while reading this book. I am still not sure what about this book doesn't quite work for me. I like the characters and the atmosphere, I like the sex... I just can't bring myself to care that much. I think Fae Sutherland's dialogue is fun to read... However, this book, like the others before it, has something missing (I wish I knew what it was!!).

I think part of the problem is that the plot felt kind of like an afterthought. I figured out what this series reminds me of. It is like a lesser, gayer version of "The League" series by Sherrilyn Kenyon, a series that I happen to adore.

Was this book a worthwhile read? Yes, for sure. I think that this book was a fun, light entertaining way to spend an afternoon. However, I don't know if I'll remember it in a month.
