    Good story!

    Alex has been asleep for about a hundred years when he wakes up on his crashed 44026155inter-galactic ship. The ship is supposed to be bringing colonists to a new world, one that is viable and ready to be populated by humans. Earth was running out of time, so ships were dispatched with a variety of people on board. When Alex wakes up…most of the people on his ship have been killed because of a malfunction. His best friend and the woman who encouraged Alex to ship out despite his being gay (apparently gay colonists weren’t accepted) is one of the victims. He’s alone. For a terrifying few minutes, Alex struggles to regain movement in his limbs and find out if he really is the only human left alive. Fortunately, Luke Belka is also alive. He’s command trained and takes Alex under his wing immediately. Even once they find out that they truly are the only two remaining souls alive on their ship, Luke follows procedure and begins to set up a rudimentary camp. He’s the one who maintains hope and helps to keep Alex focus. As time passes, Alex explores and begins to suspect there is no one else coming to assist them. While Luca continues to focus on building the communications array, Alex develops feelings for his crewmate. Luckily enough, those feelings are reciprocated although Alex finds himself questioning whether it’s more about convenience than emotion. This book was too short! I would have loved to have read more about the relationship between these two men. It was an emotional roller coaster, and I feel as though the author – given enough pages – could have really explored that. Great idea! Loved the world that was created and the simmering passion between the two men. Give it a go if you are looking for a quick read…m/m romance!

    Mixed Feelings

    Overall, I liked Alex as our narrator; he's a likable and easy going guy who could work on his confidence a bit. He's devastated by the loss of his best friend, Eileen, who didn't make it out of cryosleep and the beginning of Abundance is set deep in Alex's grief over this death. I liked how real Emmalynn Spark wrote these early scenes because while they were hard to read they were also beautiful in a tragic way. Alex quickly learns to lean on the confident and strong Luke, who is sure that the other ships sent to New Earth landed just fine. Luke was less developed because we never see his point of view and we only see him through Alex's eyes. Luke becomes a rock for Alex in the early days and these two quickly bond over their shared tragedy. I never really felt like I got a good handle on Alex and Luke's relationship and how it evolved from sex to actual love. A large part of the book is focused on their time apart as Alex explores the planet and Luke works on fixing their communication array. While they take care of each other in small ways I was never fully convinced of their love by the end of the book. I went back and forth on what to rate Abundance because the beginning started out really strong but the second half of the book never quite worked for me. If you want a heavier feeling survival story focused more on the mental state of the characters, then you'd probably like this one.
