Untrained Fascination

Brace for Humanity Book 1

I liked this book. Lianne and Sorrok were fun and I enjoyed them as characters. The premise was interesting, with a thread of suspense - are the Rrassic as tyrannical and unreasonable as Lianne thought previously, or is there just stuff that they don't know? I also liked the world, especially the details about the different Rrassic.

The issue I found with this story was that I felt that their relationship went forward far too quickly and there wasn't sufficient explanation given and what I felt was insufficient resolution. Word to the wise: this is the first book in a series, but it feels like it will be more of a serial-based story with different characters inching along the main story. So if serial type bit-sized info isn't your thing, you might want to skip.

I'm intrigued, so I'm along for the ride. For the time being. We'll see if the later books live up to the promise.


Book Blurb for Untrained Fascination

Like thousands of humans, Lianne works for the Rrassic on a world she didn’t know existed. A friend stuck her neck out during registration and hid Lianne’s compatibility with the Rrassic under the guise of an existing allergy to cats.

An accident at a public event made Lianne run into the action, and a few small cuts left enough of her at the scene to give the hunters a trail to follow.

Sorrok selected Lianne as a possible mate back on Earth, but he wasn’t the one to collect her during the final extraction, so he was sure that someone else would have found their way into her bed.

His delight meets feral possessiveness, and while he changes her life, he makes sure that there is a place for him in it.
