    There are a few things you should know about me at the beginning

    There are a few things you should know about me at the beginning of this review. 
    1.) I don’t like man vs. nature stories. I don’t. I never have. I’ve never made it all the way through most of the classic movies of man v. nature: The African Queen, any of the Indiana Jones movies, I haven’t even made it through Romancing the Stone and for Heaven’s sake that one is about a ROMANCE WRITER. I mean that one should be an obvious like for me right? Nope. 
    2.) I don’t really like sci-fi romance. I’ve tried. Multiple times. There are some great ones out there but I can’t really get into space ships and aliens and all that. 

    Okay, so those two disclaimers out of the way, when I agreed to read Jenna Bennett’s Fortune’s Hero I didn’t know that what she was giving me was a sci-fi romance that involved man vs. nature as he trekked across a miserable planet to break out of prison and then break back in to get his friends. 
    No, all I knew was that Jenna had written it and if Jenna writes it, I’ll read it.
    Seriously, her Savannah Martin Mysteries is probably my favorite series of all time. I once recommended it to someone as a way to teach about southern female culture to Northerners. If they read Savannah they’ll suddenly understand the twisted freaking backgrounds we come from. So, Jenna said I have a new book, want to review. I said, sign me up oh creator of my favorite literary character. 
    She sent me a sci-fi man v. nature. Elsa is not Savannah. Quin is not Rafe Collier. Somehow Jenna made a couple that was even HOTTER than the ones I loved before. Rafe has been kicked out of my proverbial book boyfriend bed, given a pat on the head and told to put his fictional clothes on to make way for Captain Quin Conlan. 

    Seriously, I don’t like Sci-Fi or Man v Nature but today at my daughter’s swim meet they had to literally take the kindle out of my hands so that I could watch her race and the whole time I was going “but, but, can’t they postpone her race? I need to find out what happens!!!!!” 
    I’m sorry Savannah, you’re still my chicken fried home girl, but you’ve been replaced as my favorite Jenna character. We can still stay friends though right?

    Notice: I was given this book for free by the author for a fair and honest review.
