How far would you go for love?
Since losing her parents at 14, young prodigy Dr. Lydia Ashley has focused on one thing: an appointment on the Deep Water Research Command Endure. Now 21, she’s about to realize that dream, but nothing is how she imagined it would be. Her transitional sponsor forgets her, her new lab is in complete chaos, and, as if that weren’t enough, she’s about to discover something so horrific it could potentially destroy all life on the planet.
Daniel Brewer, a noted playboy and genius in his own right, may be exactly what she needs… Or he may make everything worse.
Has she finally found a puzzle she can’t solve?
I got interested in this book when I did the cover reveal of it on our blog. I mean the cover is gorgeous and the synopsis is intriguing. I was a little put off with it being SciFi but I thought what the hell, I need to expand my range a little. SO DAMN GLAD I DID! Seriously, I had to literally stop myself from reading so I could sleep, being hit in the face with your kindle fire 10 times isn’t fun. But this book was beyond awesome and cannot wait for the next book in the series!
So whats it about right? Lydia Ashley, Dr. Lydia Ashley is genius and when her dream of being part of the Endure comes to life, there’s nowhere else she rather be. Of course the perks of meeting Daniel Brewer might be an influence on her decision, but when he failed to make a good first impression, Lydia was disappointed. Determined to get her department organized and running, she has to work with Daniel to create software to organize data to where its accessible. What Daniel creates is beyond her expectations.
Daniel Brewer is the resident playboy on the Endure and has reputation a mile long. Being late to meet Dr. Ashley has already put a wall up between him and her. Checking her out in front of her doesn’t help his case… at all. He hasn’t met someone to disregard his charms as easily as Dr. Ashely is doing, determined to change her mind about him, he changes his course of action. Instead of flirting with her, he puts his focus into his job, changing his life for something better. When that starts catching her eye, it only fuels his passion of his work.
Then files are found that look incriminating and disastrous. Working closer together to figure out just what was going on in before Lydia got there, Daniel and her set off on research. What the stumble upon is nothing short of life changing… for everyone. Not sure who to trust, Lydia and Daniel talk to the captain, Daniel’s father, and more research is done. Nothing comes without a price and sometimes trying to avoid feelings only intensify them. The chemistry between Daniel and Lydia is beyond explosive and one night changes everything. Literally.
So what did Lydia and Daniel discover? Can they stop it? Does it go deeper into what they thought and is there a way to prove it all? Stumbling upon something that wasn’t meant to be found can have some serious consequences, what will they be? Can they figure everything out in time or will they be too late?
Starla writes beautifully, even with the science to anyone who’s not familiar with it, you don’t feel confused like your missing something. It leaves you intrigued and wanting more. Especially when it comes to Daniel. I love how she alternates POV throughout the book. You get a feel for both aspects since Daniel is tech geek while Lydia is the science geek. I absolutely loved this book and hope the next one will be out soon because I cannot wait to see what happens next. I have so many questions, some that were answered and some that spurred on new questions. YOU HAVE to read this book! If you’re not usually a Science Fiction Romance reader, take the chance. You won’t be disappointed!
