Space pirates anyone? This is my second story by Ms. Lee and I found it entertaining. Starting off we see Shay as a little girl and her only dream is to be the captain of her own ship (space ship that is). Her father was one and she’s had a fascination with the stars. Then she met a boy who shared her passion. And living in a pretty small town/world? where nobody ever left to go become someone and do great things, their only option to accomplish their dreams is to enlist in the SpaceCorps.

But things don’t turn out the way they expected them and Shay makes a decision that will take her on a path to become a renowned space pirate. She’s left everything behind, including the love of her life, but she’s doing something she loves.

Fast forward ten years and she’s given a cargo mission that should be simple. Except nothing about being with Jayce again is simple. Their feelings for each other are still there, their issues have grown with her disappearance and re-appearance as a pirate. And somehow they have to work together for a common goal now.

Short and entertaining, I quite enjoyed it. Not a lot of steam, but for such a short story I think the author did a pretty good job at world and character building.

I’m a 30 something sun lover living in the Big Apple (read New York).I’m a book and coffee addict and lover of all things elephants.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!

I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.

Hope you girls like it!

And Ang, The Host is not really sci fi romance, is just sci fi, and just a bad book in general, really stupid actually and so boring. SOOOOO if that’s your only sci fi you need to look at sci fi erotica or sci fi romance instead.
