Demon, Numan, Cyborgs, Cerebrals and more. Sci was a Cerebral that found himself in forbidden terretory, Federation space. He was abducted, sold, traded, imprisoned. I look forward to a few stories Jandy, Chollar, Pax, Ansel, maybe evne Sands.

    Different.Sasha was born to a Terran mother on a slave planet. Sci is a Cerebral who was found floating in a life pod by a Federation ship. The ship is manned by a mixture of Federation spacers who have escaped another slave planet where they were forced to fight in the arena. Most of the crew didn't survive and their pilot was critically injured. At first they didn't believe that Sasha could be a pilot but changed their minds after she successfully navigated her way through an asteroid belt.Sas Different.Sasha was born to a Terran mother on a slave planet.

This is a fast paced story that gives a very different view of the future in space. Sasha is naive but determined to succeed as a pilot and to rescue her mother and her friend from slavery. Sci is from a Cerebral planet where people are born by artificial means and have no human contact with each other. Sasha overwhelms him and he fascinates her.I would describe this as a gritty tale but well worth reading.

    A good try for a new author. The relationship build is a medium burn and they get to know each other before the sex. Secondary characters are interesting enough so that I'd read their stories which are coming. Downside Sasha is a bit of a Pollyanna and it wasn't till about half way through the book that I thought her character evened out and her thoughts/ actions realistic. Sci was a different hero and I enjoyed his learning of human behavior. Downside to him is in the last quarter of the book h A good try for a new author.

The ending was a hea but a little jagged with the intro to another story. Heads up there are some grammar mistakes.

    Sci and Sasha makes this story worth reading in this exciting Sci Fi. He was taken hostage against his will for what he is. Sasha is on board the ship a pilot who wants to fly ships but because of her Terran half is omitted. Both are looked upon as defaults because they don't fit into the Federation Space Society. Will Sci escape and take Sasha with him before it's too late and can they have a meaningful relationship in spite of their differences?I received a free copy of this book via Booksprou Sci and Sasha makes this story worth reading in this exciting Sci Fi.

    With an outstanding backdrop and wonderful characters, the story flows easily from page to page. The rollercoaster lives of the leads, twist together with the other characters within the book to form a substantial feast for the imagination. Even in the future there are prejudices, but as with today they can be overcome and eradicated leaving room for true romance.A great science fiction romance read with aspects and concepts not seen in other romance books.

    Looking forward to the next book!I really enjoyed this sci-fi alien romance! It's a complete story with no cliffhanger, which I really appreciate. I loved Sasha and Sci, their relationship developed really well, not too fast or too slow! There is a great cast of character and I'm looking forward to reading their stories, especially Pax! I didn't feel overloaded with information as some other reviewers stated, but to each their own!

    Sci and Sasha do not have your average romance. Sci does not know what "standards" and normal needs in any relationship. I was a wonder to read how this relationship grew. This book has a great background with a Federation with all the rules and regulations. There are what some would consider triggers including torture and losing a child.I received an advanced copy of this book and am voluntarily leaving an unbiased , honest review.

    2 stars for all the main & secondary characters except Sasha (and her mom, etc). The characters were well done and I liked all of them.After that, this book was so gd boring. UGGGH! I get mad at myself every time I think of the time I wasted reading this. It had soooo much promise but it was its own worse enemy. I pushed through because of the promise but it never realized. Also, BLAH. SOOOOO BLAH.

    Sci is a telepath who ended up in enemy territory, hoping to escape. Sasha a human pilot, hoping her new federation crew will keep her past this trial run. They end up roommates due to lack of rooms on the ship.Layla Stone transports us to a fascinating universe, well crafted, for a swirling romance, tons of actions and mysteries and the promise of many more stories to come.Unexpected hostage was my latest happy surprise, I'll definitely look for more books by this author
