Blue Galaxy (Blue Universe # 1)
Falling in love is easy; staying alive long enough to enjoy it just might be impossible.
Javan Rhodes, the hard-drinking, disreputable captain of space freighter the Kypris, took a mission to save himself from hitting the bottom of the food chain. Transporting Sola, a beautiful young aristocrat, from Earth to an unknown destination on the outer rim of the colonies is lucrat...more
Allow me to explain. When I read a romance I expect to fully vested in the characters. They are an enormous part of it for me! I loved Javan, his character was very real, but Sola… was a lying, manipulative bitch! Who wants to read a romance where one of the main characte...more
So I read Mako's Bounty a little while ago and really liked it. Then I remembered that I had another little SFR treat by Diane Dooley tucked away on my iPad.
Diane Dooley's Blue Galaxy is a short, romantic and sexy science fiction romance. It's a story where you think you know the characters; the hard-bitten, hard-drinking ship captain on his last voyage and his last credit, and the naive upper-class young woman who will redeem h...more
This is a decent, quick story but leaves a bit to be desired IMO. The ending feels rushed- the 'twist' too twisty for my tastes. Predictability isn't always a fault if done properly and I feel like the author was stretching for a twist for this one. I've seen others review this and complain about the inability to enjoy it because the LI, Sola, seems so unlovable. Sola is indeed very unlovable by the end of the story and I wanted to throw the book agains...more

This is an interesting sci-fi story with a hero to die for and a heroine who's a bit less than worthy of him. Javan is sexy and...more

How I got this book: NetGalley
It’s no secret that I love a good Sci Fi Romance, especially one set in space with epic battles and fun plot twists. When I saw new author Diane Dooley’s new release, I knew I had to get it. While I wasn’t absolutely blown away, I was pretty impressed by this debut book.
Captain Rhodes is looking to forward to his newest mission, taking one of the Earth’...more
I got my copy for free on offer by Carina Press. I am so thankful I never paid any money for my copy.
I only read the book to the end so it would be another notch on my book-reading challenge quota. If it hadn't have been for that reaso...more
So, maybe, in the end it's His motivations I don't quite believe. Or maybe his backstory. I am left confused.
Which, admittedly, is...more
My only complaint with the story was Sola, but not the character herself,...more
Javan is hired by a rich family to take a woman to her husband-to-be on a far-off planet. Sola is innocent and naive, except where sex is concerned. He's attracted to her almost immediately.
A familiar story, right?
But things are not what they seem. A few major twists and it's a whole different game...more
