Overview

This is a NOVELLA of approximately 34,000 words = 110 odd pages.

Dani's been through a year of hell...

Just as it's getting better, she's tossed forward through time with her orange Persian cat, Charmin Marvin, clutched in her arms. They're dropped into a few centuries into the future. There's nothing she can do to stop it, and it's impossible to go back.

And then it gets worse...

A year of government regulation is easing, and Levi Blackburn is feeling back in control. If he can keep his reckless brother in check, everything will be perfect. But while he's been protecting Milo from the government, Milo's been busy working on a present for him...

The present is Dani, only she comes with a snarky cat who suddenly starts talking...and doesn't know when to shut up.

In an age where breaking protocols have severe consequences, things go wrong, putting them all in danger...

I could not pass this up. A talking cat. Mine talks to me all the time but I never understand. Scientist who study cats say they each make up their own language making it harder for us to understand but Charmin Marvin arrives in the future talking so Dani can understand him. He is a great character. Dani, Milo and Levi carry the story with Charmin and they do a great job. Broken Protocols is a quick fun read. It helps set the stage for future novella's in the series. It starts the world building but really just gives a glimpse. More of that will probably come in future stories. What it does best is build the characters. Milo, the perpetual 16 year old, Dani who comes from 200 years in the past and Levi the responsible one. And of course Charmin Marvin. The story ends with a solution to one problem but with many more on the horizon. I liked how this series starts and look forward to future book in the Charmin Marvin novella series.

This was such an interesting read. It was a wonderful start to what I expect is going to be a great series. I just loved the world Mayer has created. I can see a lot more about the world and characters back stories just waiting to be discovered. It's an interesting story line and I'm so invested already. I can't wait to start the next book and find out what happens to the characters next.

As I am treated to the POVs’ of characters who are literally, centuries apart I am intrigued and feel a need to go on. Once catapulted into the future I cannot help but appreciate the tone of this time; computers have taken over the world – something I’ve been saying will happen as we continue to give them more and more abilities. The characters are very interesting, particularly Milo who on the surface seems like an evil genius but without posting any spoilers I’ll just say I perceive there to be more to him than that deep down.  We are also treated to an interesting glimpse into what can happen when a government is allowed to have too much power.  I was unable to put this book down – I will say be prepared to need Book 2 as it does end abruptly.

Dale Mayer is an amazing author with a wide range of talent.  Broken Protocal is an intriguing tale with more than a touch of fun. Dale Mayer always draws the reader in with the world she creates as well as with the wonderful characters and the fantastic plots. This time the world is two centuries into the future and the plot is literally fantastic! Dani is pulled forward two centuries, and the idiot who did it thinks it is cool that it can not be reverse. She knows she does not need a spoiled genius in her an already too complicated situation. On the other hand, he has a strong, intelligent, and need I mention handsome, older brother who tries to cover for all his brainiac mistakes. It is no surprise that the government is even more involved in people lives in this high tech future, and Dani knows she has no place there. So many questions and no immediate answers!!! Broken Protocal is a lighter than Ms Mayer's usual stories an offers real humor, a smart and smart aleck cat contributes more than his share, but it is still a serious time travel romance. Dani and Levi hooked me on the first try. I immediately rooted for a romance between them and wanted Levi to slap some sense into his younger brother. In other words I quickly came to care about these people. Note that this is the first in a series or trilogy, I hope series, and there will be carry over of story as well as characters.
