Oh, Charlotte Stein, I am in love with you! Well, specifically your characters, plots, and insanity!
"The Horizon" was a literal ride of my life! With its roller coaster ups and downs, I was nauseous, excited, horrified, and ecstatic! I simply adored the cute and rough romance between Quade and Sol. This particular tale hit way too close to home for me! Although I'm not a cyber, I definitely have issues when it comes to intimacy so I tend to funnel those cheese-ball sentiments into teasing insults and light slaps onto my husband's arms in order to protect my soft insides! I completely understood Sol's motivations!
As for Quade, dear Lord, I love him! I am tired of the Alpha male who just takes and takes and then pretends he can hold the entire world on his shoulders! Quade understood that women were strong, that Sol was special because she was a fighter, because she was independent. That's what he loved about her. And that's what I loved about him! He didn't need her to depend on him, to obey his every command, to faint at the sheer sight of him, or to constantly cry out for his aid. He saw her as a partner, as an equal.
The story was seemless and terrifying! I held my breath during certain close encounters and even gasped from time to time when I imagined the nightmares that Quade and Sol were suffering through! No matter the time and place, human emotions will always be raw and real. That's what Charlotte Stein knows how to write. Her stories may take place in outer space but her characters have the same flaws that we all suffer with. I can always relate to her characters because they are real and very gritty.
I know that whenever I see a release from Charlotte Stein, I will be buying up like it's nobody's business!
When Quade swoops in to save his archenemy, Sol, from bloodthirsty Cybers, he doesn’t expect to find himself almost torn apart, terrified beyond imagining and even worse—declaring his love for her.
Now they’re trapped on Sol’s spaceship, both half-insane due to the Cybers pumping them full of some lust drug. If they can’t get a hold of themselves quickly, they’re going to be doing some pretty dirty things.
But surprisingly, Sol doesn’t seem to mind that newfound feelings are bursting out all over—especially when said feelings pave the way for wild and constant sex with her former enemy.
