When Sparks FlyS first She has not said one positive thing so far and the way she treats people especially her own sisters is horrendous If I had continued reading I would have wished for her death by the halfway pointXera was in the book I read before this No Words Alone so her presence really makes no sense to me hereA decent concept for a story completely ruined by immature emotionally stunted characters Though i read the books out of order it didn t ruin the story Gem Blue meet under bad circumstances but have an interesting relationship I liked how every time i thought the story was over a new twist began Book 2Maybe shoulda been book 1I m ust saying Having placed No Words Alone on my keeper shelf I was looking forward to what I thought was the 2nd installment about a trilogy of sisters set in the future on a world CALLED POLARISFIRST OF ALL THIS BOOK WHILE PUBLISHED SECOND PolarisFirst of all this book while published second actually the first chronologically This is Gem s story Her sisters are Xera heroine of Now Words Alone and Brandy They run an innbar called The Spark and that s about the only part of the book that s sparking for me Multiple tropes that really weren t even fleshed out like hinted at a disjointed storyline and no chemistry between the two romantic characters at all It almost felt like the author wrote this as an afterthought so she could give Xera a backstoryIf you read No Words Alone or plan to this book explains a little of why Xera is the way she is and what some of her motivations were in NWA For that alone I give this book 2 stars Good read action oriented futuristic romance I read her No Words Alone sometime ago and really liked it this book comes before that one on the chronology of the universe The heroine from Words is Casuistry and Modern Ethics: A Poetics of Practical Reasoning just leaving home for the academy to become an explorer In the world of publishing Words was published before this one Gem the oldest Harrisdaughter manages her inn and her family with precision control and formidable to do lists Enter Hyna Blue who seems to be a ne er do well drifter who hangs out in her bar She offers him aob and attempts to manage him along with everything else Suddenly everything starts to go wrong her youngest sister wants to leave her middle sister is wound so tight she s ready to explode and Blue refuses to behave respectably And then someone seems to be trying to kill herHyna Blue is tracing a drug operation that seems to be centered on the inn How could it be happening without Gem knowing Is the woman he lusts after a crook or a dupe And boy is she going to be mad when she finds out he s been lying to her Blue and Gem I didn t find this as compelling as the next book in the series but it was a great read There s mystery adventure romance and everyday life on a another planet Gem has her hands full running life on a another planet Gem has her hands full running family barhotel after her father died and listening to the complaints of her little sisters She s practical and self sufficient but she s also willing to lend a hand when the opportunity arises And so she offers a ob to a no account drifter named Blue who keeps showing up at the bar But Blue isn t what he seems and there s going on in her hotel than business as usual I don t usually like snarkily arrogant heroes but Blue was pretty entertaining It was fun watching him fall in love with Gem like watching a drunk try to cross a crowded room lol. Ith many disreputable types the least deceptive of which were the shape shifting aliens The ruined beauty of one patron and his drunken proposals were the least of Gem’s worries and perhaps her one solace Like her father had named it long ago this inn was The Spark Gem had to survive the blaze. .
Ionship that was tense at times and awkward at others It took "A Lot For Them To "lot for them to find the courage to succumb to their feelings The other characters including the heroine s 2 sisters could very easily be heroines of their own stories and I would love to read those as they were interesting females However the plotline itself was a bit scattered and hodge podge It didn t really have a firm villain and it bounced around a lot between conflicts until my head was spinning at bit Plus the excitement of the story did not carry through to the end and the last few pages were a bit awkward Still I really liked this book It could have been perfect if a few things were tweaked but still a really good book Better than I expected Gem was a little silly sometimes but she always seemed to come to her senses before major drama ensued The sci fi aspect of the story wasn t a huge focal point Often in these types of novels the author is so proud of their inventions that the freuently go off on tangents that are a turn off for your standard romance fan I m an even bigger sci fi fan than I am romance fan so I found some of the space age descriptions Dawn came up with here surprisingly interestingwouldn t have minded if she d expanded a bit Overall decent story and characters Not a huge amount of sex mostly ust build upso if that s what you re looking for look elsewhere I ve added Xera and Brandy s stories to my TBR list What re looking for look elsewhere I ve added Xera and Brandy s stories to my TBR list What heck did I Charlestown Blues: Selected Poems, a Bilingual Edition just read Some how I always seem to pick up books by this author and when I look at them and read the back I get this feeling that I m going to hate the characters But no matter I wipe clean the slate and begin my read I really hate this chick I find myself thinking as I continue reading By the end of the book I m staring in shock at the choices all of the characters have made What do you mean you llust up and let your sister go Building the South Side join the galactic explorers or whatever I mean it s not like anything changed she s still in danger Why aren t you worried still What happened to the few emotions that actually made sense Blue was no hero that I d find attractive He seems suave and hot and handsome but he s really a bottomless eating pit with the snarky sass of a donkey A big Jerk yes it deserves a capitalI couldn t get into the characters and the chemistry between Blue and Gem It s a shame I rather liked the world building that went on in this story I couldn t spend any time with these characters before I felt the need to rip my hair out of my skullGem is a bitch She thinks she can do everything all by herself She s somehowudgmental while having the personality of a toaster oven She lets her sister Brandy walk all over her and has no idea how to interact with a member of the opposite sex And with two TSTL moments in the first 17% of the book I Bright College Years just couldn t take her anyBlue is a dick I dunno what ruined beauty is but he leers and gives me the willies when he hits on Gem like she s an easy mark He completely takes over the situation given Gem doesn t seem to take care of it herself and treats Gem like a doormat while demanding various favors eating everything in sight and acting like he knows something Gem doesn t Not a hero that I find appealing in any wayBrandy is a bitch too Sheust couldn t let Xera go without spouting off a few negative remark.
