Jodi Redford scares me. Seriously. When I read her books I sometimes wonder if she doesn't sneak into my room in the middle of the night and attach a complicated tangle of wires to my forehead to suck out all the things that I like so that she can incorporate them into her books. You guys might think I'm joking BUT I'M NOT! It's like she has a direct line to all the things that make me tingly. Sexy sci-fi, tentacled aliens, BEING STRANDED ON A BARREN PLANET AND FORCED TO GET NAKED WITH A HOT PILOT! I'd tell her to stay out of my head but I like what she writes too damn much to deny myself.
Anyway. One thing that doesn't scare me about Jodi is her ability to write really fun characters. Rini, for example, is a hoot. She's strong-willed, skilled, and she just might be the tiniest bit OCD about her antibacterial wipes. How can you resist a girl who carries a virtual medical kit in her pockets "just in case"? You can't. She casts her antibacterial magic on you and is irresistible. Then there's Lucus, with his 9 inch... err, I mean, with his slightly battered outlook on relationships and his self-depreciating humor.
Did I mention the tentacled aliens yet? Because PLEASURE VALVE! Lol! Oh, man. That just cracks me up beyond belief.
"It's been proven that the males of our species have bigger brains."
"Too bad the same can't be said for your pleasure valve."
Funny and sexy with a side order of never-boring, Jodi Redford might have frightening mind reading abilities but she writes a damn good book.
