I’m not normally a fan of romance, but maybe Sci-Fi romance is that sweet spot for me? After reading A Titan for Christmas. I will read more SF romance because I really enjoyed this book!
Jenna, the heroine, is truly a strong female character. This is one of my big problems with most romances so I think this is what sold me on the book. She’s independent, self-sufficient and just the right amount of pig-headed. When things break, she fixes them – in the engine room and in her life. She doesn’t need a man to complete her – but that doesn’t mean she can’t want and enjoy one in her life!
Grayson, the hero, is a jerk at first (of course, this is romance) but it turns out he has a really good reason for acting the way he does when they first meet. To tell you more would be a big spoiler, but it’s believable and he turns out to be very sweet. This short novella is only told from Jenna’s POV, so we don’t get to know him as well as her.
I was worried about the plot sagging considering there are only two characters in a small space, but I thought the plot moved along nicely. The pacing was excellent, though I did feel the end was slightly rushed. At around 13,000 words, this can easily be read in one sitting.
Readers should be aware there is one “on-screen” sex scene (which was well-done), though there is a lot of sexual tension throughout the story.
All in all, it was a fun, quick read with only a few flaws. I look forward to reading more from Aria Kane!
