I really wanted to love this book. It had so much potential, but I have to give it a 3.5 rounded up. There was insta-love, of which I’m not a fan. And the world building was flimsy. I’m still going to try the next book, so we’ll see!

Expecting one thing and got another. Left a bit disappointed

Perhaps I had the wrong impression going in but my thoughts on the book.

I thought this book was going to be a swashbuckling story of a space pirate girl battling through the universe with some romance mixed in. What I got was a love at first sight story with sci fi randomly tossed in to make it seem grandiose but for me caused it to fall flat. Empress of a very desirable world but doesn't have ships protecting the planet so a l

I've just finished reading the book and I enjoyed it, in fact it was hard to put down because I thought the plot and characters were interesting and believable. I don't mind love at first sight stories, actually, it's enjoyable to read a book about two young women falling in love without teenage angst. The conflict between Everleigh and Akacia was, as weird as it sounds, quite refreshing to read and I thought especially Akacia's reactions and feelings were understandable.

I must say, however, tha

I received this book for free through Voracious Readers Only.

Without Hesitation is a fast paced science fiction adventure.

When she is ordered to kidnap Empress Akacia of Valinar, and ends up falling in love with her, they decide to defy Caspar for the first time. After a rush of action, torture, a spaceship crash and surviving on a hostile planet, they have to get rid of Ca

Shelves: fiction
An enticing introduction to a sci-fi series with two female protagonists. While tension starts as a fight between the two there exists a mutual attraction which intensifies through incidents which sometimes are not what they seem. It was exciting to read and though I'd like to write more but I'm afraid I would give too much away.

I thought this was a pretty good read with a unique premise. I really enjoyed the characters and their relationships with each other were very believable and emotional. I hope 5he next book ends on a happier note.
