Futuristic m/m erotic romance by Nix Winter. In this world, the nobility has whole planets where slaves are bred believing that the Gods will come for them. Except, when they are taken, it is for the purpose of making them "pets" for the nobility. The story does jump around between characters, and sometimes hard to follow. Well written and extremely erotic. No m/f couples in this book. The book does not complete the story. There's more in this series, somewhere. I'd read it. I'm not a m/m romance fan, and I enjoyed it. Book is better than good.
