Selling Mars by Rae Gee
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a free copy of this book for my honest review.
I enjoyed this book as much as the first one in this series, Mars on the Rise. Selling Mars continues the story of Cedo and Billy after they have discovered that Erus is still alive and being held in a far off enemy country. Billy has nursed Cedo thru his grief and upun discovering Erus is alive they decide they must rescue him. What follows is an adventure not only physically but emotionally and sexually as well.
There is so much going on in this book. There all all the elements of steampunk as well as hot M/M romance. There is also alot of emotional turmoil as Cedo is torn between his love for Billy and his loyalty to his master. He feels so torn in two as he wishes to hurt neither of them but love them both in different ways. The characters themselves are very alive and, like all of us, flawed. There are jealousies and anger and resentment that naturally comes with love triangles. Even though its told from Cedo's point of view, we feel the pain of Billy as he tries to understand the hold that Erus has on Cedo.
Loved the ending! I won't spoil it, but I will say that its definitely a cliffhanger. Want to know more!
This book is definitely not for everyone as there are scenes of violence and M/M sex (definitely for those over 18). I recommend that you read the first book in this series first as Selling Mars picks up right where Mars on the Rise leaves off. But if you like steampunk and M/M romance this is a series you should read. Loved it!
