Gravitational Attraction

Gravitational Attraction - Angel Martinez This was an interested sci-fi read. It's wasn't my typical read, so it was a bit strange in the beginning, but I was soon enthralled by the story. The book won't be for everyone, but I think fans of science fiction and aliens will love this. People who enjoy reading sweet romances and can read anything will love this book.

The couple were really sweet together, sometimes I was confused when Isaac would get snarky with Turk, and be all lovey dovey at the same time. If you can get past the insta-love, it will be a great story for most. I don't have an issue with insta-love - in fact I love reading books with insta-love - but for some it can be an issue. Both MC's had their issues which helped their connection. The bond they had was definitely a huge bonus to the story. The endearments were sweet, too. I swooned a bit when Turk would call Isaac "my heart". Meh. I'm just a big sap for that sort of thing.

The space jargon was an issue for me. My problem, I think, was that I don't normally read this type of book. I don't watch sci-fi shows, so things can confuse me slightly. But even when I was confused by things - especially the whole women thing - I never stopped enjoying the read. In all honesty, it was a great sci-fi experience.

Another tiny issue I had was the names... There were a lot of names at times and my poor tiny brain couldn't process all of them. Perhaps, if they had been more common names, I would have had an easier time. But some of them slipped my mind and I had to look back to try and remember who the person was... That was probably just me, though.

I really enjoyed the book, and I am glad Marc recommended it to me. For fans of the genre, it is a fabulous read.
