    This was a book I wanted to love. I miss the Jacquelyn Frank of old (Elijah... Gideon...), back when her books made sense and her characters were lickable. Now I want to punt the characters across the room. *sigh* The idea was intriguing. It's a futuristic/SciFi idea with three worlds. The Interplanetary Malitia keeps the peace. I could buy into all of that. One thing that I do love about Frank is that she never lacks in imagination. I loved the worlds. What hurt this book came down to basic story This was a book I wanted to love. I miss the Jacquelyn Frank of old (Elijah...

It's a futuristic/SciFi idea with three worlds. The Interplanetary Malitia keeps the peace. I could buy into all of that. One thing that I do love about Frank is that she never lacks in imagination. I loved the worlds. What hurt this book came down to basic story telling: The head hopping was atrocious. It's like she didn't even try to write a scene from one POV. Instead of giving us clues to how the character was thinking (facial expressions, body language...), she'd simply jump into their head and tell us. ARG!!!!! What it really lacked was an intriguing plot. The whole time it was, "Oh, noes! Someone's trying to kill me." Without the benefit of any real motive. When it comes down to telling the motive... she cheats and erases the dudes memory. WTF? Plotting needed to be tighter and the stakes needed to be higher. There was over 100 pages before the MCs meet. Frank tries to make it better by having them "dream" of each other. BUT!!! I can't buy the fact that they fall in love/lust via these dreams when he only remembers one or two of them. Also, once they do meet, and are separated... why not dream then?! It reads more of a plot crutch if it's not consistent throughout the novel. Plus, the characters were cardboard. I mean, really. The characters are not consistent. Not even the secondary characters remain consistent! It's like they all go through some kind of psychotic change halfway through the novel. I never got a sense of what the MCs wanted. What their goals where. WHO they were as people. Just that they were cream-their-pants-wet for each other and wanted to jump in the sack whenever possible. www.theanonymousmouse.com

    I really adored the Nightwalkers series, thought the Shadowdwellers series was ok, but found Frank's last series both boring and kind of creepy. So, I was both hopeful and slightly apprehensive when I started this one. Unfortunately, I only got about 100 pages into it before deciding that it's a DNF. The good: when Bronse and Ravenna are in scenes together, they have a really strong chemistry that reminds me of the sweet sensuality that made me like the Nightwalkers so much.

The bad: everything else It starts off with 30 pages of world-building and character-developing via massive info-dumps. All telling, little showing. I will admit that I found Bronse's rapturous descriptions of his male team-members' physical prowess kind of entertaining in a "is Frank going to add m/m elements?" sort of way, but with the amount of head-hopping that went on I'm not sure it was intentional. There's also the poorly done creative morphology - in addition to building worlds, Frank also builds words. Unfortunately, those words are along the lines of "nutria-treated water" -- because yes, having rodents involved in water treatment seems like a good idea. (Seriously, did this book have an editor?) What finally made me give up, though, were the descriptions of Ravenna's physical abuse and sexual molestation by her captors. I fully admit to being squeamish, but honestly, I don't want to read about that garbage in my escapist literature - there's enough of it in real life. I'll tolerate it from a few authors, but here it just seemed exploitative, grotesque and physically unlikely (that Ravenna would live through it without extensive damage/medical treatment, I mean). Anyway, I'm glad this was free (LTER program) but I'm sad that an author I used to adore is now going on my to-avoid list.

    First Reads Winner!!! Ok so this was hard for me to get into at first. I am not a huge futuristic fan but I did enjoy this book and look forward to the next one. I loved that Rave and the rest of The Chosen Ones were so different. I do have to say that Rave's brother Kith was on my last nerve by the end of the book.

Bronse the commander was pretty cool and I loved how his team all worked together like a family. So basically Bronse dreams of Ravenna and she is trying to tell him something important but he thinks he may be loosing it. What is she trying to tell him? Well I cant say cause it pretty much makes the whole book and I cant give that away. But I will say there is plenty of action lots of hot lovin and pretty good characters. The secondary characters are pretty cool too. I think I have a crush on Ender though.. lol Hope he has a book.

Surprises are always welcome. It got a bit confusing from time to time because it was a very complex world building and many new characters to get to know, but I ALWAYS love a new challenge. Maybe I liked this so much because all the reads I've been reading lately in this genre were a bit predictable and common, so this new elaborated plot with its compelling and intriguing characters was an interesting novelty. I also really enjoyed the 'Militia' element. How the author played mixing reality and fiction. In this installment we get introduce to the specialized unit of the Interplanetary Militia,a group of people highly trained to do impossible tasks. While they work helping 3 different worlds, we constantly get the feel of authenticity. Still, some things I didn't like... I'm not rating this series any higher because of the main couple and because I still felt like it was too much information. I might like a challenge but with this book it was more than that... it kinda felt like a huge mistake from the author to give so much information in only one book. I did understand everything, but many things could have been omitted and the essence of the series would have stayed the same. Then my problem with the main couple is that while they were cute together, I never got to feel a strong connection between them. This was probably because so little time goes on from when they get introduced till the end of the story. I prefer my romances to develop in a longer timeline so this way we feel like we have been present while it evolves and matures, it's just makes me feel closer to them because you get that feeling that you know them, it just gets more personal. Important observation... It still was a great introduction to a new series. First books in series usually come with too many information, so this feeling isn't new. I noticed many have rated other books from this author -which are not a part of the Nightwalkers series- really low. I just don't know why... I really love the way Jacquelyn Frank writes and how much importance she gives to her world buildings. I really appreciate how she takes her time to write intricate and elaborated plots. Her books always captivate me. I just know I will never find them boring or dull, specially never predictable, and I adore that about this author. Can't wait to read the next.

    First the things I liked. Bronse & Ravenna. Bronse is a special-ops commander (that's not the correct terminology, he's a part of a unit ETF, or something like that), and a guy with a good childhood, but with a broken marriage. He was okay, but I was more intrigued by his friends Lasher & Ender, who seemed more complex (and more tortured). Ravenna, for the sheltered life she led, is mature and strong. She's taken care of her entire family, has no insecurities, and looses her temper only once in t First the things I liked. Bronse & Ravenna.

He was okay, but I was more intrigued by his friends Lasher & Ender, who seemed more complex (and more tortured). Ravenna, for the sheltered life she led, is mature and strong. She's taken care of her entire family, has no insecurities, and looses her temper only once in the entire book (I'm not counting the times when she was under the influence of drugs). She is pretty perfect. And that's my only problem with her. I know that doesn't sound like I liked them, I did, but they are not so memorable. Now, I had a few problems with the book. So, every character has a first name, last name and a nickname, and the author keeps mixing them up. It took me awhile before I finally managed to sort everybody out. Also, the POVs from Bronse's squad in the beginning were, I won't say unnecessary, but in that point of the book I didn't know them at all, and it was hard to concentrate on what they were thinking/saying. And don't forget Kirth, Ravenna's brother. You know that feeling when you simply wish you could reach into the book and beat a character into a bloody pulp, well Kirth would definitely deserve it. He was so annoying and immature! It was obvious when I reached the end of the book, that the next one in the series Seduce Me in Flames, will be tightly connected to this one (or at least I hope it will be). We know who the bad guy is, but we don't know his motives, and there is a part of the story behind everything that is missing. All in all: 3.5 stars.

    It always takes me a bit a bit to get into Jacquelyn Frank's books. I think this is because she jumps right into these unique worlds and she tends to give a lot of information. Not only about the worlds, but about the characters too. This sometimes takes my brain a bit to get into because I am taking in so much information and I don't want to get lost. Once I got over that speed bump, the book picked up momentum and I was hooked!

I think my one complaint is she kept jumping between using Masin's given name and his nicknam (Lasher). I think she did it for a few other characters as well. This would sometimes jar me out of the book while I stopped and figured out who I was reading about. All and all, this was a great book. I loved Bronse and Ravenna together! The secondary characters were interesting as well and gets you really excited for the future books to come. This is another great start to a Jaquelyn Frank series and I am looking forward to the next book to come!!

The BAD: There were a TON of side characters. On the hero's side you have about three or four characters who we learned a good deal about which makes me think they are going to have their own books. One the heroine's side is like another 6. Too many for a first book. And certainly too many for such a short book. Tropes - Instalove/virginal heroine/alpha hero: I'm pretty sure only about two days in majority of this book. Toward the end there was a "two weeks later" kind of thing but I point all that out to say that the hero and heroine didn't have a ton of interactions and yet here we are with an HEA. The alpha is supposed to be an expert military infantryman and yet can't seem to get his head together around the heroine. I actually can't stand heroes that lose their head to lust despite the fact that the circumstances are completely inappropriate. Which brings me to my next point... The UGLY: The initial displays of affections and thoughts trailing off to erotic places felt very off to me. For example: (view spoiler)[ after discovering she was beaten and molested by kidnappers, he's kissing her five minutes later - mind you this is in the dream state in which they meet first but he KNOWS she's in agony. (hide spoiler)] Meanwhile I'm like dude, can we address this trauma before you start mauling her??!! and another time: (view spoiler)[ so he finally rescues her and they meet in person. He is looking at the bruises that have been left on her from the kidnappers after they've shredded her back and again molested her and he touches her breast where there is a bruise. He then starts caressing said bruise and is all like oh me, oh my I'm such a bad guy. Her nipple got hard. But I liked watching it. (hide spoiler)] To be honest, I think I liked the hero best in his interactions with everyone except the heroine. The most weird and egregious to me was the relationship that seems to be developing between Ophelia and Lasher. (view spoiler)[Ophelia is sixteen and Lasher is a grown man. He's all like oh she's just like my kid sister and I feel so protective of her and yet Ophelia comes to his room in the middle of the night scared from a nightmare. She then asks to sleep in his bed in his room. Most sensible adults would either say no and be firm or let the teenager stay and find other lodging. Nope, not this guy. He sleeps next to her. I guess on top of the sheets (hide spoiler)] but I'm like Jacquelyn Frank if this is your idea of how to get a couple started...GROSS. 2 - I'm not continuing this series - stars

    This review was posted at Under The Covers I have always wanted to read a book by Jacquelyn Frank. I think a lot of that has to do with the sexy covers.

I think a lot of that has to do with the sexy covers. So when I found this on audio recently I decided to give it a try. I actually had NO clue what the story was about going into it so I was a bit surprised to find it had a bit of a sci-fi romance theme. I do think in general those are hard books to write without getting a little cheesy, but I think Ms. Frank managed to write an interesting enough story. Of course we have an interplanetary military force of sorts, and one of the best teams is led by Bronse Chapel. He's your typical military guy. He lives, breathes and sleeps his job. He's good at what he does, but usually not much else. He is a bit lacking in the communication and interrelations department, and he only manages to have a good rapport with his team members. He tried the marriage thing, didn't work. But now, someone inside his own organization wants to kill him. He doesn't even know what he did, what he knows or why they want to eliminate him. There's someone out there that senses his dilemma though, and she needs his help to escape herself. She is Ravenna, a member of the Chosen Ones, which we slowly learn about throughout the book but will become very important I think in later books. They are powerful beings. Each one has a different power. Her power is visions, to be able to see the future. She was captured along with her brother. And she knows Bronse is destined to come rescue her. She first comes to Bronse in his dreams. Beautiful, ethereal, at first he thinks he's going crazy. But she leads him to her. They are immediately enamored of each other, even though they have to hide it so others don't suspect that he knew who she was before the rescue. His job, and his teams', is to protect the Chosen ones they've managed to rescue and to unmask and defeat whoever is trying to kill Bronse. The pace of this book was a little slow for my taste, and it definetely had a certain something missing (spark?) that I can't put my finger on. The world building was really good, I do want to read more about where it will go from now on. I also think it's worth mentioning that this book changes perspectives throughout the book with some of the team members. So at times you might yourself in the head of the first in command, or the pilot, etc. At times it was interesting, at times it felt a bit out of place and non-related. And onto the side characters, I'm intrigued to read more about all the Chosen ones. A lot of them are still young, so it might seem wrong, but I actually thought it was really cute to see Ravenna's younger sister crushing for Masin, Bronse's first in command. To sum it up, I did find it interesting, it had some hot scenes, I liked the hero, the heroine was ok, and the world is interesting enough for me to continue on reading!

    I received this book on Goodreads First Reads. I have to say one reasons I entered this ARC giveaways was because I was a big fan of her Nightwalkers Series. But this book...though I really did love the world she created in general, I couldn't help feeling...that it was slow, why I don't know, but there was definitely something missing in it for me.

I have to say one reasons I entered this ARC giveaways was because I was a big fan of her Nightwalkers Series. But this book...though I really did love the world she created in general, I couldn't help feeling...that it was slow, why I don't know, but there was definitely something missing in it for me. Bronse Chapel, 'the commander of a specialized unit of the Interplanetary Militia', I found was very, well to say the least he held high appeal to me, total alpha male, and we see him first carrying Trick his wounded team member across the very dangerous desert planet. So hero, leader, dangerous, sexy, who could want more from our main man? Also, he is getting dream warnings from a 'Chosen One', Ravenna, but not just a Chosen One, she is the leader, they are a group of people with special gifts. She knows something bad is going to happen with Brones and his team, and will help him, but first he has to help the Chosen Ones. And not that I didn't like her but I didn't love her, and felt I couldn't really connect with her. But I do think her and Bronse was very suited for each other, they were both very strong and dedicated in there own ways. It has already been mentioned, and speculated that it may be cleared up after final editing, that there is a lot of information that is being given out, in the beginning of the book. Not necessarily a bad thing, but I felt it kind of distracted me from the story in general, and made it slower. Also, the names and nicknames, I didn't find that to tedious, but it did kind of bother me. And the switching perspectives of the team. One moment it was Bronse, then Lasher/Masin, ect. I didn't, not like learning about them, they did intrigue me, and they didn't switch to many times but I have never much liked book that switched to much. Another thing I am curious about is Domino, one of the Chosen Ones. I hope he has his own book he really intrigued me since I first got his description, black and white hair? Sounds hot to me :p Altogether I really did like the book, and I definitely recommend it to you Jacquelyn Frank lovers out there. I do think I will try to pick up the second book when it comes out, to see what happens.

    I thought Seduce Me in Dreams was pretty good, and even though Franks takes her paranormal romance act to a sci-fi setting this time, Seduce Me in Dreams very much fits her formula which means that Seduce Me in Dreams falls a bit more on the steamy side of the steam vs story balance. Seduce Me in Dreams kicks off with an attention grabbing opening as our alpha male hero Commander Bronse piggy-backs a critically wounded special forces team member out of hostile territory on a dessert planet.

Seduce Me in Dreams kicks off with an attention grabbing opening as our alpha male hero Commander Bronse piggy-backs a critically wounded special forces team member out of hostile territory on a dessert planet. The next few chapters bog down as we are brought up to speed with our hero's history, get up close and personal with several members of his team, and as Franks introduces our petite yet powerful heroine Ravenna who visits our hero in his dreams long before they meet in the flesh. I would have been happier if I'd gotten the in-depth bios a little later in the story once I was a bit more invested in the characters - since there were a lot of good ones among Chapel's team and Ravenna's little family of psychics. But once the story got going, I found that I really liked Bronse despite being conflicted at times about the way that Ravenna causes him to loose his center and his focus, and how after a big speech to Ravenna about how he has been taught to cherish woman before they 'join' for the first time, he is no where as considerate during their second encounter. I didn't connect as well with Ravenna, she is so busy being strong all the time that I thought she was a little flat, but I am hugely hero-centric so that wasn't a deal breaker for me. Speaking of hero material, I really loved Bronse's second in command Lasher and he is clearly positioned to take the lead when the series continues with Seduce Me in Flames. And with a great deal of the series setup out of the way, I am actually looking forward to seeing where Franks takes Lasher and Bronse's new and expanded team next time round. (I received a free advance reading copy of this book through the Amazon Vine)

    WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THE BOOK 1)The author did a great job expressing the passion between two people. You could read w/o using your imagination to get a rise out of your body. 2)Favorite part was the rescue of Ravenna and Kith 3)Adventure; taking the reader to different locations; space station; different planets 4)Chapter 3 was when my interest peaked. Appreciated the way the author set up the characters in chapter 1 5)Moments between Bronse and Ravenna (ooh la la) WHAT I DID NOT LIKE ABOUT THE BOOK 1)N WHAT I LIKED ABOUT THE BOOK 1)The author did a great job expressing the passion between two people.

Appreciated the way the author set up the characters in chapter 1 5)Moments between Bronse and Ravenna (ooh la la) WHAT I DID NOT LIKE ABOUT THE BOOK 1)Names used interchangeably too many times; sometimes you thought four people were in the conversation when in fact there were only three; very very confusing. 2)The book was classy enough w/o using the "p" word or the "c" word; other words could have been used 3)Breaks in the names of characters; one character introduced as Masin "Lasher" Morse in beginning of book and later re-introduced as Lt Commander Lasher Morse 4)First time Ravenna and Bronse kiss should have been a teaser. Instead it was hot and heavy WHAT I WOULD HAVE PREFERRED TO READ ABOUT IN THE BOOK 1) Introduce character and for the remainder of the book use one name or reference to one term i.e., Lasher or Lt Commander depending on who was doing the talking 2) Would have loved to read about each Chosen One using their talent behind the backs of the military team and later showing their talents to the military team after they had used the talents in various situations. This would have allowed the uniqueness of the characters to stand out and would have made them more personal to the reader. 3) Will there be a book two because I don't know why a particular character wanted to be assassinated 4) The name Han Abjurdoon, a Shiasha was mentioned but reader did not get to meet him

    In all honesty I want to like this book, but it's taking me FOREVER to finish the audiobook. Well forever by my standards. I always have issues with fantasy stories on other worlds because they require SO much world building and I start to get bored and uninterested. I'm going to muddle through and hopefully finish this by tomorrow. Hopefully!! I'm a bit more than halfway through the audiobook now and I just keep thinking that this can't be the same author who gave me great stories like Jacob, Noa In all honesty I want to like this book, but it's taking me FOREVER to finish the audiobook. Well forever by my standards. I always have issues with fantasy stories on other worlds because they require SO much world building and I start to get bored and uninterested. I'm going to muddle through and hopefully finish this by tomorrow. Hopefully!! I'm a bit more than halfway through the audiobook now and I just keep thinking that this can't be the same author who gave me great stories like Jacob, Noah, Adam, Damion, etc... This seems like it's written by a first time author. I'm a bit disappointed by that since I loved the aformentioned books. Moving on..... two hours left in the book and I swear I can't wait for it to end, this shit is torture..... awe damn this just got worse. I hate when the author uses certain words for shock value. This story didn't have the grit to get away with using the word "pussy". The hero curses occasionally yes, but he isn't raunchy enough to get away with using pussy. I cannot wait for this book to be done. All Done!! (view spoiler)[ WHAT THE FUCK!!! I am pissed that I went through that entire long ass boring story just to NOT find out why the hell the guy wanted Bronse dead. TOTALL FUCKING RIPOFF!! If you can't guess the story does NOT give a satisfying ending. I really shouldn't be surprised because the entire story sucked!! (hide spoiler)] I really enjoyed The Nightwalker books and I was hopefull that I'd like this book too, but alas I was really disappointed. Narrator - 2 Story - 1 The narrator gave an over the top performance giving a bad story a very cheesy feel. I won't condemn her for her narration because I'm sure even the fabulous Xe Sands, Phil Gigante, or Tavia Gilbert couldn't have done this story any good.

    This is first book in Ms. Frank's " Three World " series and is a significant departure from her original works. Being a HUGE fan of Jacqueline's, but not really onto sci-fi, I entered this with some trepidation. This series takes place in a completely alien setting, there is no connection to Earth whatsoever.

They were given to a nomadic tribe of barbarians to give to a vicious warlord as a gift. Raveena knows Bronson is her savior, but will he arrive in time. Loved the two main characters, her heroines are always strong, and the heroes, waaaaay hot. Bronse has coal black hair, and lavender eyes. Yummmo. The chemistry is smoking hot, and her love scenes could deep fry chicken. The other characters, both crew and the Chosen ones are intriguing and captivating, especially Domino, he's a sexual empath with black and white hair. Love me some Oreo's. I wouldn't miss the rest of this series for a stack of lottery tickets. Well done, well done.

    Seduce Me in Dreams is a fantastic novel with one heart-stopping moment after another. I swear there were times I forgot to breathe as the action, adventure, and deadly intent of the enemy was described through the wicked pen of Ms. Frank. I absolutely loved every moment of this novel and if I were not frozen with awe over the antics of the Chosen Ones, my heart was racing over the pure testosterone-oozing men who become larger than life throughout the pages.

Of course, Bronse has prior knowledge of Ravenna (the leader of the Chosen Ones). They have been sharing dreams and falling in lust. It's a fast-paced romance (it all happens in only a day or two) and the military part is exciting and dangerous. I enjoyed this series starter and really liked all the characters and look forward to following their future adventures.

    For me this book started out slow the 1st fifty pages are a lot of world(s) building that I thought I'd never get though...but once that is out of the way this story takes off with a bang! Well worth sticking it out....Not only is there a great chemistry and story line between Bronse & Ravenna I have already found myself dying to read the other's stories as well, especially Ophelia <(I probly spelled wrong) whom is the younger sister of Ravenna and a chosen of great healling power.

    I honestly can't say this book was bad, because it wasn't. It just had too much narrative for me. Alot of people like it, I tend to lose patience with it. This book also felt more sci-fi than paranormal romance but again, could just be me and my take on it. I honestly can't say this book was bad, because it wasn't.

    Honestly...I do not remember the last SciFi romance I've read/listened to? Mmmm *wrecks my brain*. Have I EVER read SciFi romance??????????? I do not remember. Yesss I have read plenty of SciFi normal (some may have a small element) but yea....I cannot think of one.

The story follows Bronse Chapel who is the commander of a specialized unit of the Interplanetary Militia. He starts dreaming of a beautiful and exotic woman who is haunting him during his waking day. Little does he know this woman is real. It is Ravenna who is the leader of a small group of people from her village that are born with powers. They are called the Chosen Ones. She doesn't know what draws her to Bronse's dreams night after night, but she knows something will happen to his team so she tries to help him and warn him of the dangers ahead. The first 75% of the book I simply could NOT stop listening too. I had to know what was going to happen next. I liked Bronse and I liked Ravenna. It took an eon for him to finally save her and get to her, but it was worth it when they found each other. Not under GREAT conditions, but they really earned each other and helped each other out. Now...the last 25% dragged a bit. I zonked out twice. We had fast-paced and then it slowed down quite a bit comparatively. But I was happy they found their HEA and whatnot. The narrator was new to me and she did well. I like her guy voices. She did try to make them all different and I appreciate that. Some were similar, but overall I applaud her performance. In the end, I am unsure if I will continue to book 2. We shall see. I enjoyed this for what it was and I liked their journey and I huzzahed when he finally found her! The last 25% was not as good though. It slowed down too much for compared to fast-pace and action of the beginning. Overall, I'll give this a 3.

    2.5 I only have myself to blame. I borrowed this from the library. I've passed it up several times, expecting it to be horrible. Experience has taught that older PNR (this is from 2011) and I don't usually get along. Gender tropes are often too strongly reinforced for me. Women are always small and delicate and men are large and dangerous. Women are victims, men are victors, etc. But I've listened to pretty much all the PNR that my library has available via OverDrive/Libby, so I gave in and rente 2.5 I only have myself to blame.

I thought it started out well and I began to think maybe I'd been wrong....then it all went to shite. Or to be more precise, it all went exactly as I'd previously anticipated. I lost track of how many times phrases like "her sexy little lips," "her pert little bottom," "her sweet little hands," "her bright little eyes," etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. etc. Ravenna's character development seemed entirely based on her ability to withstand misery and Bronse's in his ability to berate himself for his attraction and kill things. Of course, if Ravenna considered killing someone it had to be avoided at all costs, because it would be sooooo harmful to her mental state. Why is this only ever true for women? I did think the universe this was set in looked interesting. But I didn't feel like it was well developed. Nor were any of the side characters. Lastly (and importantly), there is a pretty big mystery that moves the plot along. It isn't solved. The book ends with a, "I guess we'll never know why." Ummmmm, no. That's 100% not acceptable to me. All in all, not AS bad as I expected. But not great either.

    It was a little confusing at first considering that there are worlds instead of countries. But the worlds are still technically countries but like any country, each one has it's own climate, rules and everything else. The middle of the book was really good but it was really confusing. If the author took sometime to describe what each person does then the confusion wouldn't be so much. The author described each persons ability near the end of the book and it got really weird.

What didn't happen is when the main female protagonist had a vision, there is automatically many things that come to your mind. One thing I would change about this book is have a prologue at the beginning of the book and just describe how the three worlds came to be, what each of the worlds does and how far away each world is away from one another. There is also no mention of where the worlds are located which makes it very hard to understand. But overall, I say this first book is a well rounded book. Can't wait to see what happens in the next two books.

    3.5 stars. This is very enjoyable and highly entertaining. I really wasn't able to guess what would happen next. I understand why Frank wrote this how she did. Although she did not satisfy my expectations, I still think she wrote a great sci-fi romance. I see why others wish she had written a better or more climatic showdown between the Bad Guy and Good Guy, but I think her ending shows something quite tender and subversive. 3.5 stars.

    Here's another book where I'm convinced people are rating it low due to having expected it to be a Paranormal Romance—and it's NOT. It's most definitely sci-fi romance and I greatly enjoyed it. I mean, Gods forbid that Jacquelyn Frank decide to write something other than Paranormal Romance. If you don't like Sci-Fi then don't read this book, simple as that.

    Wow, this was such a great story. The dynamics of military and mind power was well played. Then add in the love story and you have a book I could not put down. Can't wait for the next book in the series. We need to meet the whole team one-on-one and get their stories. Gotta say this was well worth the read. Wow, this was such a great story.

    Bronse and Ravenna are interesting characters and I really liked the setting. However, I thought the story was disjointed, not something I'm familiar with when it comes to Ms. Frank's books. She has a wonderful flow and smoothness that was just missing. This book just felt forced to me. Overall, it is still worth reading.

    DNF at 23% I just didn’t care for the characters, and the whole story didn’t make sense/draw me in. So, never mind! When I’m more focused on writing IG captions and haven’t been paying attention for 10 minutes, then you know I should probably quit. If I truly cared, I’d pause the audiobook while typing.

    Loved how the Ravenna, Chosen Ones leader, was able to contact a "hard-ass" military commander of an elite squad. It has interesting character development as well as plot twists.
