I absolutely adored Cricket Starr’s PARTNERS. It was a sexy erotic Sci Fi read and had a lot of depth to a caste in society which is only considered good for one thing.
The characters Steel and Reyna were very believable and their love was very real. It was a heart stopping warm erotic romance, one of the best I’ve read in a long time. The ending, though a bit unfair to Reyna and Steel was very believable and still happy for the hero and heroine.
Not to give away any spoilers, but my heart was pounding when Reyna was facing the blackness of space, her horror at the situation had me on the edge of my seat and I couldn’t stop turning the pages.
I would definitely recommend this book for anyone who is a fan of Science Fiction Erotic Romance.

Book Blurb for Partners

The last thing that synth and former pleasure slave Reyna wants on her asteroid belt prospecting claim is a partner, even one as sexy as Steel. She figures the man will quit but the claim is Steel’s means to freedom and he’s not about leave, particularly when he has a hot woman who doesn’t know he’s a synth sharing the work...and his bed.
The pair has everything in common except the truth so when all is revealed it could be the end of their partnership -- or the beginning.
To My Readers: To me partnership is defined by trust so the idea of having two people hiding who and what they are and yet becoming partners and forced into trusting each other made for an interesting story dynamic. Also there was a lot of humor in the idea of highly sexual beings trying to avoid being seen that way while still being highly sexual. 
But the big idea was that once love enters a relationship that becomes the real truth, and all the lies can end up irrelevant. I hope everyone enjoys my story as much as I did writing it.
