Caught in Amber takes place in the same word introduced in Rulebreaker (which I haven't read and must rectify). We're introduced to the heroine, Sasha, as she's sitting at a bar having a drink. Sasha has been out on parole for eight months. She used to be in the Nevarro Correctional Rehabilitation Center where she spent the last five years as her punishment and recovery as an amber addict. Amber is a big illegal drug of choice on Nevarro, and her ex-lover, Guy Christiansen is the top dealer of it. Sasha's more than happy to stay far, far away from Guy because she holds him responsible for her getting to the drug. But then Nathan Sterling forces his way into her life. Nathan needs Sasha's help. It appears that most of the women Guy has been with after Sasha left him not only look much like her in appearance, but end up dead because of their addiction to amber. Nathan's younger sister, Kylie works for Guy and he's afraid Kylie will be another victim of Guy's. Nathan believes Guy is still in love with Sasha, and she can help save Kylie, but must approach Guy about a business deal with Nathan. Sasha is dead set against seeing Guy again but Nathan can reduce to terms of her parole and get rid of the chip in her neck that tracks her and controls her amber cravings. If she's successful in helping Nathan, she can leave Navarro and her unfortunate past behind.

Sasha decides to help Nathan because she wants to get back at Guy for him throwing her away like garbage. But when she walks into the lion's den, so to speak, she may have been incorrect in her assumption regarding Guy. At the time she went to rehab, she was heavily under the influence of amber, and what she vaguely remembers is different from what Guy tells her that happens.

What I liked.
I loved the characters. Sasha, despite her dark past, is an immediately likeable and sympathetic character. Even after being broken and having to rebuild herself from the drug-addicted shambles she's become, she's strong, intelligent, and a warm human being who doesn't wallow in self pity but lives with her regrets. She had every reason to tell Nathan Sterling where to stick his request (and frankly I'm not sure what he was offering was good enough a prize), yet she knows what Nathan's sister is heading for and wants to help.
I liked the world building and the idea of Amber, but felt that it wasn't as in depth as I'd like. It was the character and plot that prompted the five star rating for me.

What I didn't like.
Nathan - despite his good intentions and desire to protect Sasha, I'd like to give him such a slap. He still put her in serious danger for his own ends, and ultimately I found that a little too selfish. I felt he used her, no matter how sorry he was about it and how he fretted over her. From a personal perspective, I really hate to be used. Guy - I've no doubt he was a bad man, but I found myself conflicted over him. He genuinely appeared to care for Sasha and *potential spoiler* dealt with the real creep of the piece, so I actually found it hard to hate or understand him.

In conclusion.
This reminded me of a Humphrey Bogart thriller/detective story but in a futuristic setting. Not something I'd normally go for, but the author won me over with Sasha and the lovely dark, slightly Bladerunner-esque feel. The tension was good, both romantic and plot-wise, and the one sex scene was done well. I'd like to have seen more on the world building side. If you like spy thrillers along the lines of James Bond in the future, this is for you.

There were so many good points about this novel that I find myself unsure of where to begin with the review. Caught In Amber is probably one of the best "introduction" novels for Science Fiction Romance that I have come across. It is a perfect bridge between Sci-Fi Suspense, Suspense (General) and Sci-Fi Romance. It has many elements that could fit into any setting; past, modern or future, and the world building elements are familiar enough that they would make even non-science fiction readers comfortable. It has just enough romance to make avid romance readers happy, but it isn't romance over-kill and so it should still appeal to general readers. It has a blend of suspense, action, great characters and a plot with twists and turns that will keep you guessing to the very last page.

This book earned 5 stars due to being phenomenally written in these categories:

1. World Building. Cathy easily creates a futurist world within the mind of the reader that has enough common elements so it isn't completely alien while still being unique enough to give it a live of its own. You get a strong sense of the environment of the planet, the political and culture of the inhabitants, the technology and the history without being drowned in details or long meandering explanations Cathy gives the reader enough credit to let their imagination do much of the leg work, using her expressed details to act as foundations. This is the hallmark of a great world builder.

2. Characters. The three main characters in this book are so three dimensional that you can easily see and connect to them and their stories. Sasha is a woman with a shaded past, caught up in drug addiction and hooking up with the wrong man.
