I love when h/H are in close quarters, and the resulting sex scene was erotic and needy. These two have a kind of prickly back and forth going; he's been flirting, she's been resisting, and I liked how they felt together. I wish the h had been a bit softer, but I guess it makes sense that she's a tad bitter and has her guard up. She was just starting to loosen up when the story ended. Finn was charming, flirty and just lovable.
The story's an easy, very enjoyable read, with hot sex and adventure. POV is only from h and I so wanted some from Finn! Some minor editing errors, a fun and interesting setting with likable h/H, and while not a cliffhanger per se, the author mentions that more is to come about this couple. I'd check that out, especially if there's more alone time with h/H building a romance. All in all, a very enjoyable intro for me to this author, and I'll look for more from her. I'd love to see Finn's brother have a romance with a human h.
Through, how shall I put it, clever determination (i.e. outright theft), Brielle manages to come up with the location of a mythical Xerian ship. Thought to have been lost during the war that ended decades ago, the ship and it’s payload are the find of the century (or whatever passes for a very long time in the Deadlocked universe). But Finn Strydom, an alluring, sea-green-skinned alien acquaintance/competitor, is already on the ship when Brielle docks. At this point, things get interesting. When I say interesting, I mean quite a few things. Amorous activities, capture by aliens, release, separation, a new job, another war. And some of those things happen more than once.
I think what I appreciated most about Deadlocked is the build up of the relationship that seems to mean one thing to Brielle and something different to Finn. Also, when they are separated, I agonized about how they would get together again. Because I just knew they were meant to have a happily ever after.
If the story continues in future books (as hinted at in the ‘Thank for reading!’ section after the end of the story), I will be interested to learn more about the universe that Brielle and Finn live in. There is a lot of conflict among several intelligent species out there. In Deadlocked, the conflict was more or less a device to get two characters together. I could see it becoming a more critical aspect of the story.
Mostly I like loosing myself in a complex 3- or 4- or 5-hundred page novel. Deadlocked comes in at only 91 pages (according to Goodreads). Despite the meager quantity of pages, Deadlocked has everything a girl would look for in a SciFi Romance. Tough heroine, sexy hero (alien sexy hero), space ships, a threat of war, danger, adventure and a spicy romance!

As anyone who knows my genre of reading knows that I am not big on Sci-fi books.Read more
This was a decent effort, but the grammar problems were massively distracting.Read more
