Life can be harsh and lonely in the outer colonies, but miner-turned-farmer Abraham Bauer is living his dream, cultivating crops that will one day turn the unforgiving world of Alkirak into paradise. He wants more, though. A companion—someone quiet like him. Someone to share his days, his bed, and his heart.
Gael Sonnen has never seen the sky, let alone the sun. He’s spent his whole life locked in the undercity beneath Zhemosen, running from one desperate situation to another. For a chance to get out, he’ll do just about anything—even travel to the far end of the galaxy as a mail-order husband. But no plan of Gael’s has ever gone smoothly, and his new start on Alkirak is no exception. Things go wrong from the moment he steps off the shuttle.
Although Gael arrives with unexpected complications, Abraham is prepared to make their relationship work—until Gael’s past catches up with them, threatening Abraham’s livelihood, the freedom Gael gave everything for, and the love neither man ever hoped to find.

To See the Sun is a beautiful story about romance, hope and finding someone to share your life with. It was down to earth and dangerous and romantic and realistic. I had a hard time putting it down as I wanted to know how the story continues. I liked both Gael and Bram. I did had a bit of trouble feeling their romance at first, but I liked how it slowly build and how realistic it felt and even how they where a bit awkward at first. Once they grow closer and Gale opens up to Bram about his past I really started to feel their romance. And the epilogue is so sweet and romantic. There are also some great side characters like Maia and Aavi. I loved the world building how it’s set on this harsh and unforgiving planet, but life still finds a way. To See the Sun is a very unique and refreshing take on the science fiction romance genre and one of the best books I read this year so far.
