Shot and Sweet book reviews # 114 - All In by Susan Hayes, The Day Her Heart Stood Still by Susan Grant, Treyjon by Ruby Lionsdrake

All In (The Drift, #2)All In by Susan Hayes
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Toro and Jaeger are left overs from the The Resource Wars. Created to fight they have been given full citizenship status but have yet to find a home where they feel safe. Cinder Armas runs the Nova Club and welcomes cyborgs. This is a familiar theme but Hayes makes it seem fresh and new. This is erotica but with a story line outside the sex. There are some very interesting side characters and the location, The Drift, is very well presented. This is book two, I have not read book one but this held up well as a stand-alone.

The Day Her Heart Stood StillThe Day Her Heart Stood Still by Susan Grant
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

A nice take on an alien landing on Earth. Grant mixes a military pilot choosen for the first trip to Mars with a Mother who is a UFO believer and lives in Roswell, New Mexico and an alien that just crashed on Earth.    This is a fun read that mixes what two people want (and wished for) with how to make it come true. Nothing was easy in the story and like many others I would love to see a sequel featuring the two main characters.

Treyjon (Star Guardians, #2)Treyjon by Ruby Lionsdrake
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Treyjon features another of the women abducted by pirates from Earth and rescued by the Star Guardians. This time it is Angela and instead of dogs she finds she can train the fearsome svenkars, four-hundred-pound predators. Treyjon is their main trainer and of course he and Angela start to spend time together. There is a lot of danger and tension in this part of the series. Things are not as they seem and a old enemy wants access to Earth and not for any good reason. All of the action in book 2 sets up both the romance between Treyjon and Angela and the plot for book three. It comes out in July and I can't wait to see what happens to the women and the Star Guardians next.
