JL is one hell of a writer. The way she strings together dialogue and narration is almost lyrical. Every romance lover needs to read this book ASAP! Cannot wait for her next book 🙂
This was a first read of JL Peridot and I was pleasantly surprised by her writing and how well And easily I was able to jump into a genre I didn’t even know I would want to read.
I can honestly say, I’ve never read a Sci-Fi romance before, but after reading this one, I admit really enjoyed it. The characters were so engaging; You experienced their frustrations with the corporate entities and their lack of vision, the complications with living in a close-knit group out in space. Some of the technical talk was over my head, but it certainly didn’t detract from the story. Celeste’s character grew throughout the book as did Owen’s. The author did a great job, and I enjoyed the natural flow of her writing, especially with the dialogue between characters. If you love Sci-Fi with a romantic side, then you will love this Novella.
I might be a romance addict, but I’m also a Sci-Fi geek. JL Peridot’s IT STARTS WITH A KISS checks all my boxes!
