📖 Q: what’s your fave cereal?
Take enemies to lovers & set it in space. Add in forced proximity & eventually some kissing (& also some secrets) & surrounding it all, some awesome world-building (!). Then you’ll have the bare bones of Jessie Mihalik’s Hunt the Stars 😍.
I’m always looking for writing that reminds me of Ilona Andrews. Always. & that dream duo is what I was reminded of when I joyously read this sci fi romance last week.
Lieutenant Octavia Zarola—now a bounty hunter—& Torran Fletcher were military heroes on opposing sides of the war their two countries waged recently. When he comes to hire her, her ship, & her crew for a job, she’s reluctant to be working with him & his soldiers, all Valovians with deadly powers who have the potential to hurt her & crew.
Setting out on a journey amidst the stars & living & working together helps Tavi & Torran see that maybe things aren’t quite as clear-cut as they thought.
This story is dramatic, it’s rife with tension & misunderstanding & tinged with omission & deception (gasp), & it’s so fun to read. Even when they’re prepping for their trip I was invested in the plot. The slow burn is satisfying & exciting & Mihalik maintains the ultimate will they or won’t they relationship suspense until the end.
I’m already looking forward to the next one!
