As always, this is a spoiler zone so tread lightly if you haven't yet read the book.

I really liked this one but I think my opinion was colored by the fact that I met the author. I love me a good space romance.

I know Marcus was pushy with Ada, but he's a total alpha male (which I tend to love). He's pretty badass. And yet Ada was in control most of the time. She was definitely a willing participant and she pushed him even harder, IMO.

The whole political aspect was just ok for me; I'm just not a total fan of that kind of backdrop. But I do think it played out well.

Side characters - I loved Veronica. Rhys was entertaining.

In most ways I thought Ada was really independent. But I do admit there were times she turned into a total melting girl princess when it came to Marcus. Honestly I think that was kind of the point. She did have to give some - but I agree that she could have been stronger.

I'm definitely reading the sequel. And as always for me, the audio made this book even better. I doubt I would have liked it nearly as much in print.
