Review: Tor (Women of Earth Book 2) by Jacqueline Rhoades

Series: Women of Earth, Book 2

Always feeling overshadowed by her pretty and outgoing sister, quiet and self-effacing Wynne Donazetto's dreams of college and building a life of her own were lost when Earth was invaded by two warring alien forces. Earth changed, but Wynne didn't.

Seven years later, Wynne is still living in her sister's shadow. She's comfortable there... until her life explodes along with the starliner she's travelling on and she ends up in the arms of a sexy space-aged smuggler called Tor.

Tor's life revolves around his ship and his crew and both have been taken from him. He'll do whatever it takes to get them back, even if it means sacrificing himself. Meeting the woman of his dreams is a complication he doesn't need.

Together with Tor and his eclectic alien crew, Wynne sets off on the adventure of a lifetime to retrieve a stolen spaceship and its cargo of kidnapped Women of Earth. Along the way, she'll discover a strength she never knew she had and a love that will change her life forever

When I saw the next book in the Women of Earth series was coming out, I knew I had to have it. I did so enjoy the first book and I was hoping for a repeat experience. This is exactly what I got. Highly entertaining, lots of giggles and great characters.

My first opinion of Tor is space pirate, a cocky one at that. Wynne, a meek wallflower who lives in her sister’s shadow. He’s cocky all right and she does have a bit of meekness to her but… Oh boy, I don’t think Tor knew what he was getting into when Wynne walked into his life. Tor had to learn the hard way, that he could tell her ‘this is how it’s going to be’ until he was blue in the face. However, as sweet, docile as Wynne is, goodness she has a stubborn streak. Their verbal banters, that’s a polite way of saying arguments, had me in stitches. And it wasn’t just Tor and Wynne who had me going. Mohawk, Ish, Posy, Truca, all of the characters were lovable and entertaining. It’s a rough crew but you can definitely feel the unconventional family love they have for each other.

As for the story, it is face paced and full of surprises. Tor’s motives, if one pays attention, aren’t all 100% selfish. Wynne comes out from under her sister’s shadow and is delightful. Sparks fly between these two and when the words run out their bodies take over. YUMM! Not all is sunshine and rainbows as we find out what has happened to Tor’s crew. Is it possible to have swashbuckling when you are talking about space because that is the only way I can think to describe the rescue adventures for the Bride Train. Tor doesn’t have any new information to add to the whole invading Hahnshin and the Godan conflict however, I still thoroughly enjoyed it.

Hijinks, battle of wits and HEAs left me with a huge smile on my face. Cheers to another successful release Ms. Rhoades! Can’t wait to get my hands of the next book.
