This review is from: The Key (Kindle Edition)
Some novels you read more than once simply because they completely capture your attention, take you to another world and allow you (for a time) to escape this one. The Key is one of those books.
Captain Sara Donovan, a United States Air Force pilot, is assigned to a top secret mission called Project Enterprise, to explore other galaxies. The first galaxy they choose to explore is filled with planets who are at war. In the very first chapter, Sara is shot down by an alien aircraft, meets up with a sexy alien, kills a few bad guys and the story roars ahead without pause.
Romance, dogfights, SF special effects, a mysterious alien city, lots of action, nasty villains, interesting premise.
There are a great many inconsistencies and absurdities with this novel (the "common language" of the people of these alien worlds is English, for one, too many overused military euphemisms for two), but still a fun read, just go with the flow and you'll enjoy the ride
Some sexual content, some bodice ripping (but no actual rape). PG-13, but I wouldn't hide it from a ten year old.

Whoa! I just looked, too. Very strange. There's not even a page for it now.

Huh. Luckily, it's still on my Kindle.
