This was a very unique take on a human/alien relationship and was filled with explicit sex.
Galen Jayr is a brilliant surgeon who ran from Ireland leaving everything behind when the man he believed was going to marry him left him for another man. Now in Alaska he has befriended Navojan, an orderly he met at the hospital where he works.
Seven years ago, Navojan volunteered to leave his planet Milosia to live among humans and report back what he found. Milosia is an overpopulated planet in need of a new home, but the unexpected happened when Navojan found himself left behind alone on a new planet with no way home. Galen and Navojan became friends who would meet each week for lunch discussing books. By accident, while feeling lonely, Navojan revealed what he really is. Afraid of being reported and having the government find and experiment on him, he is ready to leave. However, Galen proved he would not betray him.
Although Navojan’s face was altered to resemble a human, other parts of his body weren’t, scales and a tail to name a few. Galen is the only human to whom he can reveal himself. When Navojan leaves his tablet on the table to get food, Galen can’t keep his curiosity curbed and he reads what Navojan has written, pages of sexy words with the main character being someone named Gabriel. He wonders if Gabriel is actual Navojan’s way of talking about him, but he isn’t about to ask him.
The relationship between the two men grows and in spite of their differences—and there are many— they find themselves growing closer and closer. The sex is explicit and definitely not vanilla.
