Short And Sweet Book Reviews # 97 - Danger in the Stars by Veronica Scott, Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray, His Last Rodeo by Claire McEwen

Danger in the Stars: (The Sectors SF Romance Series)Danger in the Stars: by Veronica Scott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Miriell is from a race with powers that can make a person do things they would never consider and that makes her a valuable pawn. She is a prisoner and forced to do things to keep her people safe. This time when she arrives she feel a connection and it is to someone who should not make her feel safe. Conor is the second in command to the boss but does not always act as he should. The action here is riveting and the characters up to carrying and keeping the story moving. If you think that you have met Miriell and her people before your may be right. Her people were introduced in a novella that appeared in a SFR collection. A great story that tied up the loose ends that that novella left.  I think the ending left wide open a new area for Scott to explore and place future stories in this series.

Defy the Stars (Defy the Stars #1)Defy the Stars by Claudia Gray
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Noemi Vidal is a seventeen year old solider who is willing to die from her planet. Able is a construct - part flesh and part machine. The two are and should be enemies but a unexpected battle brings them together. I loved both characters. Able is so much more that what he was designed to be. Noemi changes as the two of them work to stop a war that has been going on for ages. This is almost a romance as Able comes to love Noemi but it stops short when they both go their own way after a very exciting adventure. This was one I could not put down. I loved the premise and how Gray used it to keep the story filled with great characters and exciting action. I recommend this for any SciFi fan. I received a free copy of the book in return for an honest review.

His Last Rodeo (Sierra Legacy)His Last Rodeo by Claire McEwen
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Tyler and Kit are old friends who reconnect when he buys the bar where she works. They used to be friends and as the story progresses that friendship returns and becomes more. There was a very nice progression of friends to lovers as the story progresses. Both Kit and Tyler have some issues that also kept the story moving. I loved Kit and how she stuck to her guns. Tyler was very strong - strong enough to face and work on his issues that were hard to admit. I was expecting a very different ending and was surprised on how everything worked out.
