This was a cute, sweet story and I only have two regrets. I wished it was a little longer and I wished there were an epilogue so we could see if Nic and Jay were able to get off planet successfully and take their information to someone who could help them. Other than that, I have no complaints. I loved the little details about the cat ears and how Jade has created this world but mostly I was fond of the way Jay seemed weak in the beginning but proved he had a backbone by the end of the story. ...more

This third volume in Jade Archer's "Contact" series was even better than the first two. We get to see more details about the future “world” Jade Archer is building in this series. And let me tell you, they made my blood run cold.

Jay is a slave who contracted himself out to learn skills valuable for his home planet, just like Lore in the first, and Blade in the second book. Jay, however, is under constant threat from the senior partners of the law firm he works for. Beatings and worse are quite f

Jay is my new favorite character in this series. At first, I thought he was a quite little kitten, but by the end I was begging for more of this hot tempered lover. I loved reading the love story of Nic and Jay. I hope to see more of them in the future. My only complaint was that this book was too short, Jade I NEED more Jay and Nic!!

3 1/2 starts. This story in the "Contact" series of sexy cat men is much more action driven than the previous two and the two characters are already in a loving relationship when things begin. I really enjoyed the two leads but, again, desperately wish these books were longer. They always seem to rushed for me to truly fall into :(

This one is my favorite in the series so far. I just loved Jay and the first scene when I read it, blew my mind. So I'm rating the version that I've read that long time ago when glass of wine was a reward for a good written chapter and a comfort when publishers just got on our nerves.

Great work Jade;) Congratulations on all your publications;)

Longing for more!! Having finished this third installment in the Contact series, it only leaves me wanting more. I can't get enough of these sexy little cat men and their partners and would love to know more about Nic and Jay and their future beyond where this story ended. How about it Jade?:) You've got me hooked and I'm hoping for more to satisfy my addiction. Great job on the series as a whole!!!

I really liked this story. In the beginning I wasn't sure if I could trust Nic, but it was all a big misunderstanding from poor communication. And I LOVED Jay. He was a fiesty little kitty!

Sweet and short. Felt a little like we were dropped into the middle of the story.

Dark Divas Reviews said : Jade Archer’s Contact Series is quite phenomenal. Ms. Archer took us from joy to utter desolation to determination and any and all points in between. The further that we delve into the worlds in her Contact Series the more I find myself avidly awaiting the next book and I truly hope that there is much more to come.

A ridiculously low-security head honcho... Who walks around without bodyguards when they're dealing with evil? I didn't like this one. Liked the interactions between Jay and Nic, but the plot was too rushed. I understand that that's the deal with short story, but it's much more realistic if things are left as-is instead of some uber-forced HEA. But hey, that's just me nitpicking.
Another cute little sci fi novella in this series. This whole series is made up of quick, short reads with minimum angst but lots of cuteness :)

Short and sweet. I enjoyed seeing Jay's development from quiet and timid to self assured and demanding!
I read this as a stand alone, which was fine.

Jade was born in 2010 after a prolonged pregnancy and labour of over thirty-four years!

Yes, she is a pseudonym. A work of my fevered imagination, which never seems to grow tired of inventing new characters. And this one's a whopper. One that seems to have taken over my life to the point I'm no longer sure where she ends and I begin! Still, it seems to be working for us.
