Genre(s): Sci-Fi Romance
When Diana woke up on her 23rd birthday she thought it was going to be a normal day. She thought of donuts, coffee, and laughter. She did not think she was going to become the center in a galactic race to win her heart. None too pleased with the prospect of alien races descending on Earth to try and woo her, Diana does the only reasonable thing she can; she runs. Now she has to try and find a way to get rid of the blasted bracelet that is the cause of all the recent craziness in her life. The problem is this isn’t an ordinary bracelet; it contains the Heart of the Cosmos. Furthermore the Cosmos chose her for a reason and it isn’t keen on letting her go until she finishes what it started over ten years ago. Something tried to destroy it and now Diana isn’t just worried about her heart, she is worried about her life.
Normally I don’t read sci-fi, but I found the premise of this book to be intriguing. And I wasn’t disappointed. If you’re looking for a fun, easy read, this is your bag. The concepts were interesting, entertaining, and at times quite fascinating. A little bit of mystery, a little bit of suspense, and enough romance to have me turning the pages with gusto! The inner monologue of the heroine was amusing at times, too. In particular, a reference to the A-Team made me chuckle. It’s definitely a feel good book.
I think the main areas I would have liked to see a little more in were description and character development. There was a lot happening, and sometimes I felt a little lost. I couldn’t remember which character was who, what they wanted, or sometimes where I was and what it looked like. World-building in sci-fi is much like world-building in fantasy. Meaning: difficult. That being said, I don’t think the author did a bad job, just that I wished there’d been a bit more.
Overall, a fun and light read—especially if you like cats.
