    I have been wanting to read this series for a while. Unfortunately, this book left me feeling very disappointed. This isn’t one of those stories I would expect to be universally hated. On the contrary, I am sure there are lots of people who like this sort of thing. It just wasn’t for me. Why?

    1) The editing was not so good. It wasn’t the worst I have seen, especially among free kindle books, but it was poor enough to detract from the story – in my opinion.

    2) The story itself was sort of thin. Much like celery is a blue ranch dressing delivery system, this story felt like it was nothing more than a sex delivery system. A lot of the sex scenes felt like bad porno to me. The scenes were just shoved into very unlikely situations for no other purpose than just adding sex. It was really too much. I found myself skimming through these scenes by the end of the book.

    3) There were some seriously annoying logic flaws in the story. For example, the Delroi have invaded Earth for the purpose of gaining access to female breeding stock because the birth rate for females among their own people has dropped to 1 in 5 of all births. When the heroine becomes pregnant with a boy, the Delroi are disappointed because they had hoped to conceive more female children with Earth women. So apparently, these very advanced, space faring people have no grasp of basic biology? Irksome.

    4) I felt no kinship for either the Hero or the heroine. I really didn’t see them together at all. Their interactions just felt flat to me. The Hero, in particular, was rather unlikable. Other than the typical far-fetched, irresistible, insta-attraction, there was nothing that bound the two main characters together.

    I guess this just wasn’t my cup of tea. As far as world creation, this has been done better in other books. I won’t spend money on any of the other Delroi books.

    It was ok for a short story. The problem with short stories is that they end before one gets really into them. I would not read any more of the series at this time. The characters needed to be expanded and for the reader to be able to get to know them. I felt they were just people in a book not characters I could connect with. In the beginning I found the book hilarious. The enemy General had to be standing pretty close for her to get that reaction and yet they both had field glasses . She had never seen his eyes before, How she saw them this time when they were both looking through field glasses beats me. Then she h as s. To run to the shower and . Sexually relieve. Herself. His reaction was just as far opp it. He could suddenly mind join with her in her pleasuring herself. Boy were those binoculars good. There was no real story just a continual sex orgy. I got a few good laughs out of the bits I read.

    ****Original Review****

    Ok, so I’m not a prude and I enjoy a little spice in my books or I wouldn’t have purchased this one BUT I like to have a good story and character development that supports the love scenes. Character development, believability in the relationship is crucial to my enjoyment of a story and it was sorely missed here. Having two strangers have near constant sex was not romantic to me.

    In reality, this is really not a romance novel – it is an erotic novel with a tiny story, that could have been amazing, thrown in. If you are looking for an erotic novel, here you go.

    If you are looking for science fiction romance, pass. You will be disappointed. Too bad, though. I really liked the idea behind this story.

    ****Revised Review November 5, 2013****

    Ok, having now read some real stinkers I now feel compelled to revise this review. In no way does this qualify as a 1 star. Ms. Hunt has talent and the world she created was believable. The sci-fi elements of the story were good and kept my interest BUT the romance wasn’t there. Hence the original low review. Upon refection, I’ve realized this wasn’t fair to the author as she wrote a great story for her genre – which is sci-fi EROTICA. I had just mistakenly read this book thinking I was reading a sci-fi ROMANCE. Critiquing this book based on a genre it was not written for was indeed unfair. Considering this book in the genre it was intended, I’m rating this book as follows:

    Quality of the book – 5 stars
    Author’s writing style/ability – 5 stars
    Believable characters – 5 stars
    Sci fi elements – 4 stars
    Love scenes – 5 stars
    Fully fleshed out story – 3 stars
    Romance – 1 star

    If you are looking for an EROTIC sci-fi novella you might like this book. Understanding that I qualify erotica as sex first and foremost with the relationship just kinda there. This fits that description exactly. The sex scenes were pretty dang hot and well written.

    If you are looking for a sci-fi ROMANCE, you will be left feeling SHORT CHANGED as the romance factor isn’t here. There’s no real SUSTAINED tension between the characters (it’s there very briefly in the beginning) and no build up in the relationship. It’s just there – i.e. h just accepts H’s claim and bam! instant relationship, instant sex and instant love. This does make sense given the brevity of the book and that it is erotica and not true romance.

    Also – one thing that might be a turn off to some is the h was an army commander responsible for many, many deaths. I didn’t like that aspect of the h’s character.

    Based on the quality of the writing, I am now rating this as a 4 star story for it’s genre, again – this is a sci-fi erotic novella not a romance. If you are looking for a book in this genre you might really enjoy this as the writing was very fluid and enjoyable and the story was interesting. I just personally wanted MORE – more buildup in the relationship and more story and less sex. This is probably a testimony to this author’s talent AND I didn’t like the “cream” factor. That was kinda gross to me.
