Title: Perfect Gravity
Second in a snarky, sexy sci-fi romance series with the perfect balance of humor, heart, and heat. When someone tries to kill powerful continental senator Angela Neko, Texan outlaw and old flame Kellen Hockley is the only man who can keep her safe...and help her save the world.
Kellen Hockley usually keeps quiet about his past, but once upon a time he loved a girl named Angela. He hasn't seen her in a decade, but now he has to break the news to her that his team of rogue treasure hunters accidentally killed her husband. He's had better days...
It's not the news that's delivered to Angela Neko that breaks her apart--it's the rumbly, Texas drawl delivering it. She can't believe she's hearing Kellen's voice again. But there's no time for distractions. When Angela's own life is threatened, yielding up all of her lies and secrets, she and Kellen must figure out how to reverse the geopolitical firestorm she lit to save the world, to save Kellen's cat...and just maybe to save each other.

Oh boy. I had such high hopes for this one. The blurb for Perfect Gravity immediately caught my attention. Sci-Fi Romances are a weakness for me. I haven’t come across many so when I do, I gobble them right up. I get so excited to see what authors create as a future for us and when they throw in romance, sign me up. I didn’t read the previous title which makes me new to this series. However, I do think there is more than enough in the book that I had no problem catching up so that’s not my problem. So what’s my problem?
It’s really hard to enjoy a story when you just don’t like the main character. Not Kellen. From the very beginning, I found him to be a great character. I loved how each of his layers are peeled away, both past and present, and we get to know him more and more. I knew no matter what he did, good or bad, once Yoink was introduced, I was going to adore him until the end.
My problem lays with Angela. I was iffy from the get-go. The story starts, they are young meeting for the first time, I’m mildly intrigued. But, as the story progressed, I began to like her less and less. Her political priorities seemed honorable but everything else, I kept thinking WTH?! A quarter of the way into the book and already I was figuring things out and yet, she couldn’t see it. For someone so smart, she was clueless. Towards the end, I felt myself beginning to thaw towards her. Then there she goes again making me not like her.
The futurist background story I really enjoyed, and the additional characters really drew me in. OMG, I love Chloe! Cheeky, sassy, now her story I would love to read. Heron and Mari, their story I think I may go back and read especially since I would like to know more about this series and their world. Daniel, without going into detail, him I just found disturbing. Maybe, down the road, I’ll give it another go re-reading Perfect Gravity. Maybe I just need more time to warm up to Angela. Maybe.
