4 Stars

A Talent For Trouble is the first book in the Bad Boys of Space Series by Landra Graf. This is the first book that I have read by Ms. Graf, so I wasn’t sure of what to expect going into the story. The story proved to be a well written, interesting and entirely entertaining space adventure, with romance, a little mystery, some suspense, danger, gun fights and battles, and wonderfully quirky characters.
Emilio Morales has a bit of a reputation as a lady’s man and bad boy- as a drug runner that reputation comes with the territory. He has dreams of running his own operation, which leads him to make a deal with the most dangerous supplier in the universe. There is a lot riding on the outcome of this one deal, it will either make him or break him. He was expecting some trouble, but he never expected his business partner to turn the tables on him. Which then leads to Emilio drifting in space on an inoperative ship, with only a few hours of oxygen left, and a beautiful, feisty woman as his companion.
Antonia Smith (Toni) hasn’t had a lot of luck lately. She’s on a mission to find her ship and had a plan in place. But when she finds herself in the middle of a dangerous confrontation, things begin to take a turn for the worse. Forced to jump on the nearest ship, she soon finds herself marooned on a damaged vessel with an annoyingly handsome runner, who seems to know just how to press all her buttons. What ensues makes for a really fun read.
I enjoyed this story and recommend it to anyone who likes a great, romantic space adventure. I will definitely be reading more of Ms. Graf’s work in the future.

Thank you, Ms. Graf!

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This story is full of action, suspense and even some romance. It is about Toni and Emillio. They both need each other’s help, want something from the other. Toni wants her ship and he is one step away from being the number one runner between Earth and the other planets. As a team their every attempt seems to fail, will they survive to get what they want? They are great, kept the story going for me, I couldn’t wait to see if they find the ending they want. I highly recommend this story.

My Rating: 5 of 5 stars

A Talent for Trouble (Bad Boys of Space #1) by Landra Graf was a fast pace, addicting read that had me hooked from start to finish.

My first read from this author, I went in blind and just started reading. The cover and synopsis may have invited me in, but the stellar writing, intriguing plot and attention to detail, made me stay.

I will say that this is a little out of my comfort zone, not so much that it’s a sci-fi, but because it was a Mafia style setup, and I don’t normally gravitate towards those types of books. But I’m glad I took a chance because this book was much more than a tale about a drug runner trying to make it big, no, it had a ani-hero vibe and with the added romance to spice things up, I couldn’t stop flipping the pages.

Overall this book, is a must read. Besides the plot and multi-layered characters, there is action, blood, double crossing and an explosive climax that will get your blood pumping. So please take my super high recommendation and my stamp of approval, that you will want to get lost in this dangerous world set in space.

Happy Reading

A Talent for Trouble (Bad Boys of Space #1)
By Landra Graf
Rated 5 stars

I love, love, loved this story! It is full of action and suspense. As well as a relationship full of lust, snark and mutual distrust. I loved each of these characters from the first moment we met them. Toni is such a strong female lead! She kept me on my toes but never disappointed me. She is not afraid to get her hands dirty and has a loyal following. Emilio is trying to turn his life around when everything goes wrong. He is arrogant and thinks his good looks, suave personality and thinking one-step ahead can get him out of anything. When these two first meet?? It’s like hot and cold. They each have a past holding them back from a possible future. Will they be able to overcome to meet in the middle?

I loved this storyline! Bootleggers, drug/gun runners and drug cartels? Spaceships, AI’s, Earth and other planets?? All of that makes this an action-packed story that I couldn’t put down. I couldn’t wait to find out what was going to happen next and how were they going to get out of the next mess. Many times I rooted for Emilio or Toni but then i was distraught Over something that happened and changed my loyalty to the opposite. There are a bunch of rag-tag dysfunctional secondary characters that I enjoyed immensely. They made the MC’s more rounded and added some fun to the story. I would love to read some more about them and possibly have them get their own stories.

This is a first time author for me. I can’t wait to read more in this series and are eagerly awaiting the next one!

A Talent for Trouble (Bad Boys of Space Book 1)
By: Landra Graf
5 out of 5 stars

The story A Talent for Trouble (Bad Boys of Space Book 1) by Landra Graf is a science fiction/romance book. It has action, adventure, romance, and danger. One reason that I enjoyed the story so much was reading about the characters of Emilio Morales and Antonia “Toni” Smith. They are both independent and strong-willed. They are also attracted to one another. Situations occur and these two find themselves working together. This causes tension and the bantering that goes back and forth between them can range from arguing to flirting. Plans are made and fall apart. Will these two achieve the future that they are working so hard to secure? Will they be able to keep from falling for one another? What does the future hold for Emilio and Antonia? Read this book to find out. I also enjoyed reading about many of the secondary characters in the story and how they interact with Emilio and Antonia. There is a feeling of comradery, friendship, and family that is felt. There are also those characters who are selfish and are only out for themselves. Emilio and Antonia are characters that I grew to care about what happens to them and wanted them to find success and happiness. This story had me at times wondering what was going to happen next and how it was all going to end. There are also some steamy moments that make the temperature in the room rise. Don’t miss out on a story that will keep you glued to the pages until you have read the last one.

When notorious drug runner Emilio Morales meets desperate bootlegger Antonia Smith, they discover contraband isn’t the only thing worth breaking the law for…
Drug runner Emilio Morales is one deal away from being the sole runner from Earth to the upper planets—until his partner attempts a double-cross. Now, Emilio’s stuck in a disabled spaceship with an unpredictable, attractive female who’s willing to help him out if he’ll assist her in retrieving her ship from an impound facility.
Antonia ‘Toni’ Smith is sick and tired of being beholden to men. The only way to guarantee freedom is to get back her bootlegging ship to run her own business again. When Emilio kills her ticket out, she’s forced to rely on him for assistance. Emilio, the most wanted and annoying man in the solar system, is a sexy-as-hell means to an end.
But every plan the duo makes falls apart and every day they spend in each other’s company increases the tension between them.
With the death toll rising and their defenses low, can Emilio and Toni get the happy ending they want, without falling for each other in the process?


Landra Graf consumes at least one book a day, and has always been a sucker for stories where true love conquers all. She believes in the power of the written word, and the joy such words can bring. In between spending time with her family and having book adventures, she writes romance with the goal of giving everyone, fictional or not, their own happily ever after.
