Fly you To The Moon by Jocelyn Han
Series: Stardust Erotic Romance Book #1
Author: Jocelyn Han
After her father’s death, the last thing Ava Windsor wants is to leave Earth and move to an Elite colony on the moon for the next ten months. Nicolas, a half-uncle she doesn’t even remember meeting, is to be her custodian until she reaches the age of twenty-one. Until then, she is not allowed to touch the money her dad has left her. Being the only child of a disowned Elite father and a common mother just got a lot more complicated. But surviving among the Luna Six Elitists who treat commoners as servants should have been the least of Ava’s worries. Nicolas Carter is nothing like she expected. He condemns the Elite lifestyle, he is a lot younger than her father, and he is definitely way sexier. Ten months on the moon seem like an eternity if you know you shouldn’t be falling for your guardian… but just can’t help yourself.
A sweet, erotic romance novella for lovers of New Adult with a hint of Futuristic.
Review: This was a short but sweet read about forbidden romance that I found very interesting and original. It’s almost a futuristic Romeo and Juliet story. Once it really got started, I really enjoyed it. I’m sure some readers might find an ick factor in the relationship between the two, but for me it wasn’t an issue. They are not technically related, so anyone crying incest hasn’t really bothered to read it. The forbidden factor comes in because of course it is more of a “frowned upon” relationship – not only due to that, but also because of the fact that Ava’s father was pretty much disowned from the family. Needless to say, they have a lot of strikes against them. For me though, it only seemed to bond them closer together.
The only major issue I had with it is the fact that it left a lot of unanswered questions. I wanted to see the fallout and consequences from their decisions, and how that affected their relationship with each other. They discuss potential issues, hiding their relationship, etc., but we never get to read about the actual events and are only left with a bunch of assumptions and what-ifs. This alone significantly reduced my enjoyment of the book. It has unlimited potential, interesting characters, and a great storyline, but I personally would have enjoyed it more if it were full-length rather than just a novella. However, for those of you who get caught up in the series – and with the characters – the second book Make You See Stars was just released on January 8, 2014. Considering it is a series, I can hope that she plans on revisiting these characters at a future date! (crossing fingers!) I will probably wind up reading the next one to get a feel for where she plans on taking the series.
