    Description

    Born on an abandoned colony barely held together by sealant tape and hope, Aurora Sato is at the very bottom of the social pecking order. Hard work and brains got her into a coveted spot in the quadrant's top university.... But her new supervisor is a woman who's not about to let an upstart like Aurora get anything close to a break. 

    And a break is exactly what Aurora needs right now. Her home colony is dying and nobody is in any rush to save it or her family. Aurora's research project is their last hope, but only if she can complete it in time - an impossible task. 

    One night out is all she'll allow herself. One night to forget her troubles. She never expects to meet a man who dazzles all her senses. Magnus Thorne is a battle-hardened, ruthless cyborg. Rich, respected, and powerful, he's too much for innocent Aurora. For one magical night he makes her feel like a princess, awakening a longing she doesn't know how to quell. 

    But Aurora is in more danger than she realizes. And Magnus isn't about to let her face it alone, no matter how hard she tries to shut him out. 

    He's determined to break every rule to save her from ruin. But will she trust him enough to let him?

    Great story!

    I was pleasantly surprised by just how good this audiobook was. I’ve never read anything by this author before and liked the way she really created a world you could believe existed. The heroine is a scientist who is finishing her educational doctorate on Terraforming planets. Her home planet is almost dead and she’s desperate to save it and her family. The hero is a very wealthy “spacer”, which is someone h has spent extensive amounts of time in deep space and has biological enhancements. When her professor she’s working under is suddenly fired, she finds she will have to work under another. It turns out to be the exciting man she’d met a week before, and Magnus is now her supervisor. There are stirrings of Deep attraction between them, but there is the ethics problem of him being Aurora’s supervisor. When someone tries to murder her, his protective and possessive instincts are aroused. Trying to get down to who wants her dead while finding live with each other made this a story I really enjoyed. Narration was excellent.

    Smart Wallflower in Space

    A completely enjoyable space/scifi romance with a touch of Cinderella. I think one of the reasons I liked it so much was that Aurora is, at her core, a smart wallflower. She's just in space rather than a Regency ballroom.

    The world-building was smooth and filled with great details. I liked that the culture was Asian/Japanese at its core, with Japanese-influenced names, foods, gardens, etc.

    Both Aurora and Magnus were terrific characters - both super-smart and kind and flawed just enough to make them interesting. Magnus was my favorite sort of Alpha - commanding on the outside and caring on the inside.

    This is Adria Rose's only book on GR and sadly her author's profile is minimal. I'm wondering if this is a nom de plume? I'm hoping for a follow-up featuring Aurora's roommate and/or Magnus' brother...

    The narrator did a nice job but I was a little disappointed that she wasn't Asian.

    Hogwarts Sorting Hat: Aurora is a Ravenclaw (with a whole lot of Gryffindor thrown in) and Magnus is a Gryffindor.

    Good idea, lackluster execution.

    Once I slogged through the first few slow awkward chapters of really annoying lusty inner monologue and heavy make out/almost sex, etc. I did like the idea of the story. There were a lot of little things that bugged me throughout the story but it was mostly the continued lack of communication between the main characters that really started to detract tward the end. There relationship just didn't make sence without it so the ending was flat and unsatisfying.
    I honestly think this writer just needs more practice. I'll check back with her from time to time to see if her writing improves. As for this book, all the little things sort of added up to a low background hum of annoyance that overshadowed the good parts of the story for me. The lack of character development/solid communication tward the end was the final nail. I'll probably return it. Better luck next time.

    Definitely more romance than Sy Fi

    Narrator was wonderful. Book was well written, I just didn't realize how much of a romance it would be.

    Really enjoyed this book

    I was at first a little leery of this book just based on the title. Just thought it would be a little too simple for my taste. I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed the book. I thought that the intellectual/scientific information woven throughout the story made it very interesting. I really enjoyed the characters and their romantic road to happily ever after. Then I can’t forget to mention there are bad guys, and save the girl moments. Fun book!

    Not for children

    I wish there had been a warning on this. This is not sweet like most other Cinderella retellings. She starts with talking about her libido and how she wants the guy naked. How he wonders what sounds she makes in bed.

    Excellent! Smart character, smart writing!

    The world Adria Rose has created is rich and layered, full of characters with complex conflicting motives and real relationships. Intelligent creation of a believable future, including complex but plausible science, and struggles exoplanet colonists would face. The university politics and pressures to “publish or perish” are extended into a future where entire planet economies revolve around a single institute of higher learning. A new favorite, I highly recommend this to any reader, especially those that enjoy a truly smart story.

    The narrator does a flawless job as well. Her performance is so natural that you forget it’s a single person performing a role and you can disappear into the story.

    Disappointed

    I liked this story but it was not what I expected. The drama started to get annoying and hated the ending!

    Narration was great!
