Book Description

World-renowned oceanographer and meteorite specialist Marissa Jones uncovers evidence that a comet cloud will soon destroy Earth. When aspiring writer and her best friend Jennifer begs her to take a Saturday morning sci-fi writing class, Marissa reluctantly agrees. Writing her real-life story as fiction gives her an astonishing new perspective on the anomalous set of craters she discovered off the La Jolla Coast. But this favor for her friend stirs up more than scientific results…writing teacher Justin Lincoln goads her constantly and taunts her with his irresistible curly blond locks and steely physique he knows only too well make women drool. Marissa teeters on the edge of anger and raging attraction for this irritating man. But it’s a terrible time to let lust call the shots when the world’s about to end and Marissa’s the only one who can save everyone.

The best! This book is well written with a complex and surprising twists and turns of the plot making it diffult to put it down. It is fast paced with an intruiging story that cannot be anticipated. The author transports readers through many emotions. This author has a long and promising career and in no time should have a rapidly growing fan base. Most readers will also learn about meteorites , diving, and underwater caves. This reader always enjoys learning about new things. This was a fun read with lots of unantipated surprises. Thank you Sabrina for another adventure. Cannot wait for your next book.

5.0 out of 5 stars This witty Sci-fi Debut is a winner! January 20, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Marissa Jones is a young Oceanographer and Metorite specialist, with a poor track record with men.
Driven by her best friend, Jennifer, to join a sci-fi writing class, Mari is forced to suffer the frustratingly personal attention of her beyond mouth-watering, yet insanely irritating teacher, Justin Lincoln.

One look at Justin, and Mari doesn't know whether to follow her body's desire to kiss him, or satisfy her mind's urge to punch his lights out.
Mari's research into the mysterious craters on the ocean floor, leads her to the discovery that the earth's end is approaching in a cataclysmic event that will claim all life.
With no-one willing to believe her research, Mari is left with not only the fate of all mankind in her hands, but a best friend to keep happy, a sexy man to figure out, and a book to finish writing. Simple huh?

Sarina Devonshire has exploded into the sci-fi genre with "A message from Viola Mari". Her beautifully descriptive style with the delicious splashes of witty humour throughout, are a delight for the senses.
"Message from Viola Mari" will keep you guessing right up until the very last page.

5.0 out of 5 stars THE ENDING CAUGHT ME BY SURPRISE March 13, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
Sabrina has given us an erotic romance science fiction story, written in the first person. It is easy to identify with Jennifer, the story's passionate heroin. The author describes her characters and settings in details that can best be described as poetic. The novel is laced with erotic loving encounters and sprinkled with humor. It is also heavy with scientific geological detail, and it is obvious the author has done her homework.

I had expected to take my time, reading short sections at my leisure, but I quickly found it difficult to put the book down. The ending is unpredictable and will come as a surprise. The reader will be left with a smile.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, fast-paced, offbeat romance January 15, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Marissa Jones is an oceanic geologist specializing in studying ancient meteorite impacts. She's tough and serious with little need for anything else in her life ...
But, when her best friend talks her into enrolling in a creative writing course, she falls hard for the instructor, Justin Lincoln, much to her embarrassment.

Marissa can't believe that she's so attracted to the hunky writing guru. She has to get over her own insecurities and accept the truth of his love ...
At the same time, she is uncovering an ancient secret that might mean doom for humanity ... Unless she can find a solution and decipher what she believes is an alien message of hope.

Investigating ancient underwater meteorite impact sites with Justin, Marissa becomes involved in life-threatening intrigues in a conflict that leads to an action-packed climax.

This was an offbeat novel which I found to be a quick and easy read. The characters were sympathetic and relatable, and writing was clear, the story briskly paced.
The story veers quite heavily into science fiction territory near the end, which is set up very well earlier in the book. Overall, a fun, light read.
