Destiny is written in the stars? Maybe, but when you're in a black hole you make your own damn destiny.
It's not every day you get abducted by an alien general, but then, Jerusa Whichab isn't having an average day. Earth is fading from view and she’s got a decision to make—cooperate with her despotic, yet unnervingly attractive captor or receive an injection of goo. General Toyeb can't be trusted, and his body-healing, mind-blowing Theta waves leave her panting for more. But what choice does she have if she's to stay alive?
None, if enemy bounty hunter Berwyck dal Korth has his way. Intent on capturing Jerusa, he performs a binding ritual to ensure she cannot escape him—a ritual with unforeseen side effects for both of them. Forced into hostile proximity, Berwyck and Jerusa battle to subdue their rising attraction, but will they conquer their desire—or succumb?
I didn't read the synopsis before I read this book. So I was kinda expecting a YA novel-which it isn't, which if I'd read the synopsis, I would've known that. So I'm stating loud and clear, this is not a YA novel. It is a adult sci fi book, with sex. So don't go into it like I did!
I really enjoyed it! The aliens, their culture, that what we learned of it, I'm sure that there's more, and what's going on with them, the reason why they took her in the first place, and everybody that needs what amounts to her help, it was interesting!
So the main man is a humanoid lizard alien. Which sounds weird, but yeah, the character himself, his attitude, and the way he presents himself, even though they're 2 different species, they did get along quite well!
The one complaint, and one that I saw a few people shared, was the backbone of Jerusa, she didn't really stand up for herself very well, and she did do some pretty great things, and it ended with her learning how to fight, there is hope for the future!
I really enjoyed this book, and yeah, I hope you guys check it out!

I grew up in tropical Panama, where the confluence of sea, sand, and too much coconut water converged to inspire me with wander lust. I’ve lived on three different continents and done a few things I hope my children never find out about—or my mother for that matter! I am now settled in the congealed climes of northern Britain, where cold nights, dark skies and a perfect view of the stars have inspired my imagination to wander farther than ever before. Space fascinates me, and I love thinking up different planets and creating characters who don’t meet the traditional view of heroes or heroines, people who have to overcome their prejudices or battle the odds to find their happy every after—with a few sexy surprises thrown in!
