I would definitely describe this book as a romance with a science fiction setting rather than the other way around. But isn’t without its fare share of action. Mara Skiren makes a living as a Black Market scavenger, she’s also an ace pilot. When one of the 8th Wing’s pilots gets kidnapped, only a scavenger can get them in to save her. But Lara is a loner and hates having passengers on her ship.
Commander Kell Frayne needs to rescue his pilot and friend and Mara is his only hope. Fortunately this is nothing a little bit of blackmail can’t solve. This book sucks you in right from the beginning. Mara is just my kind of heroine, tough smart and seriously knows how to kick ass. She and Kell are tough equals in the it own right and the love story between them crackles and pops.
At just under 200 pages this is a fast read, but it still delivers plenty of punch. Both Mara and Kell are complex characters with difficult pasts. While on the surface they are total opposites, a strict Black Wing pilot and a scavenger, look deeper and they are both very similar fighting their way for their own place in the world.
The chemistry between them is thick and a touch on the super sexy side. But it goes with the story and their strong personalities. I loved how they moved from clashing, to lovers, to partners which was all written in a believable way.
Yes, there are a couple of parts that are slightly predictable in the story, but it really didn’t detract from it at all.
A fun, smoking read I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend. Mara and Kell are great characters, and l really hope there are going to be more books in this new sci-fi romance series.
