really liked it
bookshelves: 2017, romance, sci-fi-flavoured

Again, I can't help but wish that Goodreads allowed for 1/2 *s. This wasn't quite a 3 for me, but it didn't quite make a 4 either.

I thought the balance between sci-fi action and romance was decent, and I enjoyed how realistically the majority of the characters behaved. I liked that it didn't *entirely* feel like instalove. For the most part, the action plot was intriguing, and I was pretty curious about what was up. Towards the end though, it felt like it switched gears from mostly-serious with a bit of tongue-in-cheek humour sci-fi romance to wtf weirdly-over-the-top sci-fi romance. It kind of threw me out of the story and I ended up skimming through most of the approaching climax.
