Overview

The United Planets Fleet is all that stands between the United Terran Colonies and Satagosian raiders. At the rate they’re losing fighter pilots, the UPF is willing to take any able-bodied pilot, even ex-cons. Return to prison or join the ranks. For Radha Kaden it’s not a hard decision to make. Join in the adventure as Radha finds more than she bargained for on battle station, Sentinel Five.

The United Terran Colonies are under attack. Desperate for pilots to combat the enemy raiders the Fleet puts out an all pilots call, hoping to fill their empty fighter squadrons. A call ignored by ex-con Radha Kaden, who figures she doesn’t owe anyone anything. Since a pilot’s life expectancy is slightly less than that of your average lemming, she steers well clear.

Then a bar brawl violates the terms of her release and she has a choice. Go back to Acheron, the harshest prison facility in the combined systems, or pilot a fighter…

Thanks to high casualty rates Wing Commander Davin McAvoy constantly needs new pilots. Dead men can’t fly Valkyries nor can they protect the base or her crew. When he’s told he’s getting that rarest of creatures—an experienced pilot—he’s ready to throw a party. Until he finds out not only is his new pilot an ex-con but she’s a woman too. Both unforgiveable sins in Davin’s book.

Until he meets her and sparks that have nothing to do with the war fly…

Where to start? I guess I should start by saying I liked this book. There are people I will recommend it to. It's not a bad book. It isn't poorly written. It's not something I threw at the wall. It's just... MEH. The book starts with a great hook. The opening is fast-paced with just enough edge that I wanted to read more. But there are some issues after that. 1) The White Knight turns out to be a cheating low-life. Seriously, he spent 75% of the book juggling his long-time girlfriend against the new hottie. (Spoiler Alert: The new hottie wins and the other girl never knows her boyfriend is cheating until the dump scene) 2) Every single romance trope is here. Every single one. Wounded female whose tough on the outside but just needs a mans touch to soften up? Check! Straight-laced guy who really just wants hot sex? Check! Communication skills of a three-year-old because otherwise there would be no plot? Check! Page 200 Fight over a dumb misunderstanding? Check, check checkkity check check! It's all there. 3) "Two hot pilots meet, argue, and have sex." This describes about 50% of the romance/SFR genre and the author brings nothing new to the table. Even the world-building was sub-par. On the other hand... it's a fun beach read, fans of romance will enjoy the book, and people who haven't read SFR widely will find this sparkly and new. It has some cute moments and is worth the couple of bucks it costs.
