This book, although could be read as a stand alone, is a part of the series. I have noticed that with the series as a whole the books tie into each other however they do not rely on each other too much in terms of content with each other having their own story and their own timeline.

The reason why I have found I liked this series because although it is an easy read where you know that the two people will end up together but you never know how the story will end and each adventure keeps you on your toes.

In this particular story the male character has to chose between his job and the person he loves, while the person he loves has to chose between doing what is right for the rest of the people around her and doing what is right for her. The power dynamics in this book are interesting and it shows how easy one can adapt to their surroundings if they have put their thoughts into it.

Overall, this was alright. I stumbled on it in recommendations somewhere, it's a 15 book series, and the whole adoption agency premise sounded mildly interesting.

It could use some beta reading - wrong words being used, sudden leaps in the text where something existed that didn't two seconds ago, stuff like that.

The characters were.. okay. I liked Luna except for the salad incident because that was such a blatantly dumb move. Noxx was so angsty and melodramatic about his "inner dragon", being unnecessarily curt with Luna at times, and his own dumb mistakes that I was overall not really a fan.

An unexpected plus was a minor deaf character with their own alien sign language that differed from whatever future Terran sign language Luna was familiar with. I also liked the baby. The baby was genuinely a likable character haha

Some things that felt like they were missing or didn't make sense:
* If Luna, Phoebe, and Aurora made fast friends and were in this lonely, weird situation together, why didn't they use the transmitter to communicate with each other?
* They're on a remote moon without many inhabitants. It's very dangerous at night and having any kind of home is difficult. There's a village described as "two rows of buildings." Please tell me how or why there is a HOTEL at this village? Who the hell is traveling and staying there?
* Luna and Noxx know each other for a shorter time than the length of their claiming period
