I enjoyed Escape Velocity with its futuristic slant and from the outset it's obvious a romance is on the cards. Kai and Sacha have been friends a long time so have lots in common and in fact, Sacha is the widow of Kai's best friend. The attraction they share is powerful but as his doctor perhaps not exactly the correct thing to pursue professionally. What the author does here though is explore Kai's reactions and it's very obvious he has a long road to true recovery. Modern medicine and scientific advances can only do so much and Kai is emotionally and mentally drained and let's be honest, his character is going through PTSD which might not be an obvious avenue in a romance, but this heartfelt story expresses so much.
Two people who really deserve to be happy but with so much against them it's far from easy. Sacha makes mistakes but I liked that as a heroine she is not perfect. Kai is truly damaged and at times I just could not see how the author could affect an ending that would satisfy her readers, but happily Ms Anastasi had enough plot twists up her sleeve to give a credible ending. As previously mentioned, I really enjoyed reading Escape Velocity and will definitely seek out more from this author.
I was gifted a copy by the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
