This SciFi romance is packed with emotions and flies full throttle right out of the space dock. Susan Grant's Star Hero may be a novella, but it is not short on style or excitement.

Escape Velocity (Valiant Knox #1) by Jess Anastasi #BookReview #ScifiRomance
Nearly a year and a half ago, Commander Kai Yang was captured and taken as a POW. His crew believe him dead, so when he escapes his dreadful prison and is picked up by a rescue team, no one is more surprised than Dr. Sacha Dalton, his lifelong friend.

Wanted & Wired (Tether #1) by Vivien Jackson #BookReview #ScifiUrbanDystopian #CyberpunkRomance
Straight up, you won't find many stories like Wanted & Wired in the romance market right now, although I wouldn't be surprised if the Tether story universe inspires a thriving new cyberpunk romance sub-genre. This story is steeped in diversity—racial, bio-mechanical, sexual, sub-genre—you name it, and Wanted & Wired just might have it. Readers who fancy the sci-fi and fantasy greats—Han Solo, Captain Mal, Isaac Asimov... you get the picture—will lust after this snarky, femme-strong romance that simply cannot be categorized by genre boundaries.
"I like the format of the reviews and it helps me decide if a book is a ‘go get this now’, ‘wait until you’re in the mood’, ‘maybe- if there’s nothing else to read’ or ‘probably not the book match for me’. I eagerly look to see what quotes are presented and I find the ‘if you like-’ comparisons possibly as telling as the actual review. Way to go, guys!"
