Review for Starblind by D.T. Dylinn - 5 out of 5!
SYNOPSIS - AMAZON LINK -
Owner of the Chimay grade starship dubbed The Pittsburgh; Captain Jane Sevis is one of the best bounty hunters in the galaxy. Except for the occasional problematic hunt, her life is pretty uncomplicated. When a particularly slippery target reveals the real reason for being in her database, her world is turned upside down in more ways than one. Will she follow her gut and look the other way for the man she may be falling for? Or will their love fall prey to her mercenary heart before it gets a real chance to ignite?
MY REVIEW -
This is a fun futuristic adventure with some very steamy romance, and I enjoyed it! Jane is the captain of her own starship, she makes money by being a bounty hunter. Jane is brash, selfish, snarky and boisterous, but she's also tough, relatable, and uses her bravado to keep emotional distant from people. The people who were suppose to love Jane treated her horribly, so she's a bit jaded and doesn't want to be vulnerable to anyone. Jane ends up making very bad decisions because of her desire to keep up her badass image. Jane comes across a bounty she can't catch and feels drawn to. Ash is a mysterious, sexy guy, who is also brash and has much bravado. These characters did get on my nerves a bit, but I still found myself liking them. There's lots of adventure, and I loved that there's different types of aliens. I was a bit surprised at how detailed the sex scenes are, but I don't mind that, so it was all good with me. I enjoyed the romance, and it had it's moments of sweetness, but I would've loved a little bit more vulnerability between Ash and Jane. Still enjoyed the connection between them though, and I enjoyed Ash's origins. Jane's origins are also a bit of a mystery. I enjoyed the suspense elements, and seeing Jane grow some. Jane gets rude awakening when her bad decisions catch up with her. This story is mainly for a fun adventure, which it is! I listened to the audio version of this story, and the narrator did a good job. There were a couple of weird pauses, but I enjoyed the listening experience! Look forward to the next book! There's still more to be done!
