Captain Qaelan Forster is used to trouble. He lives on the wrong side of the law and he’s on the most-wanted lists. He’s mixed up in his cousin's mess who has problems on a cosmic level—like shape-shifting aliens who want them dead. But Qaelan’s not prepared for the cheeky kind of trouble called Camille Blackstone, whose infamous father has any man interested in his daught ...more

I've given this a B at AAR, so that's 4 stars.

Entropy is book four in Jess Anastasi’s Atrophy series of Sci-Fi romances, and the first thing I’m going to say is that it’s not really a standalone. While each of the books has a self-contained plot and different romantic pairing, there are long-running storylines begun in book one (Atrophy) which impact on each subsequent title, and a newbie would most likely have a bit of trouble working out what’s going on.  The good news is that the other book

Qaelen and Camille didn’t rock my boat with their romance, simply meaning I didn’t feel a deep connection; instead it was more of a friends with extra benefits. In hindsight, this wasn’t a bad thing, since I was too entranced by the heavy plot and all the happenings between Rian and Ella to realize Qae and Cami’s romance fell to the wayside. While I did enjoy the sarcastic quips and banter Cami and Qae put out and got a kick out of their wild goose chase across the galaxy, it was Rian

Initially Entropy has more of the feel of the Blood Hunter/Dark Desires series by Nina Croft (which are awesome BTW), or this author’s own Valiant Knox series than it does the earlier books in the Atrophy series. Then a significant part of the focus switches from Captain Qaelan Forster to his cousin Captain Rian Sherron, and we’re back at Firefly – or at least a version of Firefly where Captain Mal Reynolds and River Tam are combined into one crazy person w

Used to trouble, Captain Qaelan Forster is on the most-wanted lists, and mixed up in his cousin’s mess but he’s not prepared for Camille Blackstone’s kind of trouble. In an act impulsive rebellion, Camille finds herself defending Qaelan from her father and handcuffing herself to him the captain to keep him alive.

The fourth book in the “Atrophy” series is cosmic explosion of thrills and passion that keeps readers on the edge from beginning to end. Qaelan and Camille are two strong, charismatic c
Qaelan Foster’s latest outings with his cousin have been more misadventures than adventures and mostly of the dodgy variety. But then he gets entangled with the likes of Camille Blackstone, which brings a whole new meaning of trouble.

But first, context is king: ‘Entropy’ isn’t exactly a standalone and there’s quite a backstory as to how this book begins. Basic knowledge of Jess Anastasi’s world-building surrounding the Imojenna and its ragtag crew would provide a fuller appreciation of Qae/Cami

Qae's and Cami's relationship for me took a backseat to the overall storyline and most of all Rian. I thought this book had the most development of Rian's character and the story is definitely becoming more intriguing.

I'd felt book 3 a bit flat and disappointing but this one picked up the pace nicely and headed into all sorts of interesting directions. I much prefer Rian's dark character to Qae's rakish and flippant one. As always, there's a little more depth added to Rian and Ella's relationsh

Qaelen and Camille are more FWB than love's young dream at first, but they slowly grew on me. I think the story was hindered a bit by the heavy influence of the Rian/Ellia arc that is still welding itself together in the background. The whole "entanglement" of the triumvirate thingy totally twisted by melon! LOL

Cam and Que are funny, droll, dry and sarcastic, which I really loved. They weren't sappy at all.

I would definitely read this series in order, as I found myself referring back to earlier

Cami just likes to challenge her man:
“This is my bed.” He was pointing out the obvious, but it seemed appropriate.
“And you have a problem with sharing? Didn’t your mama teach you it’s rude not to share?” She drifted closer, laying a light hand against his chest and then sliding it up a little.
Qae can only handle so much before the man cracks, “like ***l.”He closed the distance between them, capturing her mouth. Wait. Did that count as touching? Too late. He was way beyond caring." I liked this

Series: Atrophy #4
Rating: 5 stars - loved it!

It's been a year since Rian Sherron and his crew landed in the Barbary Belt after their ship, the Imojenna, was stolen. Taking jobs for the ruthless pirate lord Rene Blackstone might pass the time and earn them money but everyone is getting restless to get back to stopping the evil shapeshifting Reidar aliens. Qaelan Forster might have hooked his ship to his cousin Rian's mission but that doesn't mean that Qaelan doesn't know how to have a good time.
This new entry into the Atrophy series had a different vibe for me. I knew I was reading the series but I had to constantly remind myself yes this is the same series Not exactly sure what the difference was that had me questioning myself, can’t quite put my finger on it. Maybe it’s the lack of Imojenna and Rian’s obsession to get her back. I think I’m more use to him being wackadoodle obsessed about going after the Reidar and with his attention split, yeah it took a while to warm up. On with the ...more

Jess Anastasi is one of the very few sci-fi romance authors that can capture my attention as a reader with her Atrophy series. I’m super invested in these characters and the bigger plot but most of all, I’m here for the fun she brings to each book.

That said, Entropy wasn’t quite what I was expecting. I think like a lot of readers, my attention is glued to

This is a completely new series and author for me, as a reader I am always looking for a new series (I prefer them to single releases) to dig my teeth into when the opportunity to receive a comp copy presented itself I jumped on it - I am so glad I took the chance - I will be adding The Atrophy series to my must own list
The world building was multi-faceted both in detail and element. I was easily able to picture the different species and the ports they visited
The plotline was smooth - lots of e

Qae and Cami's witty banter and sarcastic tone with one another was entertaining. When Cami was able to get the upper hand over Qae it was quite comical. Qae was charming and charismatic, yet often arrogant, and so when Cami was able to best him it was a good laugh. Their one night stand early on didn't do much for me, the lack of build up and tension made it hard to get into it. The issue I had with our lovers is that they didn't feel quite like lovers to me ... more friends with benefits. Sexu ...more

A night in his favourite bar is just what Captain Qaelan Forster needs. A woman enters who brings the whole bar full of pirates go quiet.  He is in no mood to listen when they warn him away from her. 
Camille Blackstone is fed up with everyone's attitude around her.  She knows her father is going to be angry because of her last failure,  so what's one more thing to wind him up. 
This is a Sci-Fi romance that is part of a series.  You could read it on it's own,  but reading the series in order us

I found myself very quickly drawn back into the Atrophy universe and I think the opening scene sets the stage for this book perfectly; I laughed at Qae’s banter and tensed when Rian was in action.

Captain Qaelan Forster is sarcastic, amusing and personable. He and Camille bring a lightness and normality to the story that would otherwise be completely dominated by Captain Rian Sherron’s intense, dark and (mostly) untouchable character. As it was, I held my breath during every Ella and Rian interac

I have followed this series from the first book and looked forward to meeting all the characters again. This time Qaelan Forster gets to have the starring role in the story. It all starts when he brings the wrong woman home (wrong because she has the wrong father). From there he and the entire crew are off on another dangerous adventure. Turns out they have two problems they need to solve. First they need 80,000 clean credits and then they need to get face a pirate and get a ship. Great plot wit ...more

I thought I would give this series another go with it catching my curiosity with the last one. This gives me a bit of spice also reading something different then what I have been of late. Sci fi good ones is far and few I think lately especially when you have read as long as I have. The ones that take you on this adventure-Qaelan and Camille. Actions get the ball rolling with this and the banter is one that ensnares. He is a typical guy though who can not let go but that is what gets him where h ...more

Quick & Dirty: Romance filled with space cowboys, pirates, and shape shifting aliens.

Opening Sentence: In and out.

The Review:
Entropy by Jess Anastasi is the fourth novel in the Atrophy series. This series is set in space with a mixed group of space cowboys, pirates and shape shifting aliens. I would liken this as a cross between Cowboy Bebop and Firefly, as a group of rogue men and women fly around the galaxy defeating these nasty body doubling/shape shifting aliens that the rest of the spa

Atrophy #4, This is one book I have been anticipating, I kid you not everytime I would get an Entangled email this series is one I would always look for and now here it is, YAY! When I say I love everything about this series I'm not kidding the major events down to the little details are things that would have me say, "Oh that's a nice touch" or "I would have done the same" they make the book, the whole series something I gravitate towards because it's damn good story telling.

This is sort of a standalone novel. The adventure the characters are on is all their own, and it is easy to follow along. However it’s probably better if you read the rest of the series because you would be more invested. The story wasn’t bad, but I kept putting the book down and left it for long stretches. Everything is ok. The characters are ok, conflict is ok, the villains are ok. I may continue with this series, depending on who is featured in the next book.
