Reactions and Reviews
I can't put my finger on why I felt let down by this fast moving, sexy, sex-filled story. I enjoyed each page as I read it and was always eager to see what the next page held. The blood and guts part was reasonable, yet when I finished the last sentence and realized all the author had in mind was just getting Kirk and Spock into the same bed, I had a definite feeling of... "Oh, is that all." That's not the most logical reaction, because getting K&S into bed together is 99% of the reason for our stories in the first place. I guess I just assumed it had a co-plot and when none showed up, I was disappointed. But the sex scenes were frequent, and darned interesting. 
A nice long A/U tale of Kirk‘s biography in the Empire from Academy to Captain, starting with Kirk‘s almost rape by Finnegan and his cronies, inadvertently interrupted by two Vulcans, to his acquiring the Tantalus device, and thence to the Enterprise, Spock and Captaincy. There are some fine sexual athletics along the way, with aliens and Spock and he gets his revenge on Finnegan and his co-horts. Over 80 pages of fast paced reading with lots of action, and 'action‘ and something you will want to go back to and read again for the sheer hell of it.
