Proximity


M. A. George
Science Fiction Romance
Book 1 of Proximity Series

"And somehow I don't think he would take too kindly to my stroking his face with the back of my hand."



Dr. Palta Capal has lived her whole life mostly in isolation.  Sure, she has her colleagues, but aside from her aging father, her sister and brother-in-law, she doesn't relate to anyone.  Maybe it's because Palta isn't human.  With her much longer life and obvious differences, Palta has never found any man worth the certain heartache that a relationship would create.  That is, until Eric Moran enters the picture and turns her world, and her heart, upside-down.  But does Eric have a secret, too?  And can they find a way to be together, despite the uncertainties facing them?

My Opinion: This was an interesting book with a unique idea behind it.  I found, however, that there was much more focus on the science fiction back story than the real-time romance or action.  The romance, though it created strong connections, was so abrupt that it felt cold and without a tangible base.  The characters weren't fleshed out so much as created and plopped into their respective situations, giving a strong science fiction feel, but making the romantic side more discounted.  The plot was fun and had it's moments with some great action.  However, I felt that the great detail put into the mundane tasks and events slowed the pacing down and away from the real action.  Overall an interesting concept and one I would have liked to have seen fleshed out a bit more.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.
