He had settled into his life until Alyx spoke to him in his mother tongue. Feb 25, Eastofoz rated it did not like it Shelves: Simon is a stud.

Alyx and Simon were just two hurting people trying to make an escape. I don’t consider it a romance. Not that Simon claims to have many after having been a slave for ten years.

Renee Reeves rated it it was ok Jun 11, He never sees the women. Somon’s owner is in love with him, yet he rapes him. Well I made it to page 20 and that was enough for me.
