REVIEWS: 

"One of the most delightful courtship romances of the year, sparkling with intelligence and wit to please the most discriminating of readers. A joy indeed!" - 4/12 stars, Romantic Times Book 

"This is, hands-down, my all-time favorite romance!" - Xeneri 

"Tyberius Augustus Evans is gorgeous, brilliant, rich, kind to animals, small children and kooks, sexy, eccentric, and secure enough in himself to fall utterly and completely in love. This is a fantasy hero - no real man could ever compete with Tyber. There's no angst here, no dark and brooding secrets, simply the perfect man. . . I strongly recommend High Energy." - Laurie Gold, Laurie Likes Books Publisher, All About Romance 

"Two thumbs way up for an entertaining read!" - AK Pilot 

"Well I now must consider Dara Joy one of my favorite authors. I have loved her Matrix of Destiny series but this book and the sequel High Intensity blew me away... Buy this book!" - Brenda C. 

"I love Dara's style of writing. It captures you, draws you in and holds you till the last page." - J. Coffman 

"When I got done, all I could think of was 'MORE'!" - B. Walker

This is my first Dara Joy book, and if this is any indication of her writing talent, it won't be my last. This is, hands-down, my all-time favourate romance! It has wit, romance, two very likable main characters and a host of supporting players worthy of their own book. (That's my subtle hint to you, Ms. Joy, if you're reading this -- please write a book for Mills and Gregor! That's a super couple just waiting to happen!) I have had crushes on other heroes before, but Tyber Evans is my perfect man (can I help it if I have a weakness for drop-dead gorgeous rocket scientists with a wicked sense of humor?) Tyber and Zanita (hate their names, but love the couple) remind me of those power couples of the 30's screwball comedies. In fact, they are the Nick and Nora for the 90's! Please, Ms. Joy, consider writing sequels for this couple. I would love to read about their continuing adventures!
If you are looking for a smart, funny contemporary romance HIGH ENERGY is it.

Rarely does an author hit her stride so well on only her second (?) novel ever published. I had read the entire matrix of destiny trilogy before I ever got to High Energy, and loved the quirky characters that Dara has such a talent for introducing. So imagine my surprise when the least sci-fi of her romances -- if it can be called sci-fi at all -- turned out to have the most imaginitive and witty chemistry!
Tyber and Zanita have a classic "George and Gracie" dialog thing going, and they are both too lovable. Tyber's only fault from this reader's perspective is a somewhat condescending attitude toward Zanita's career as a reporter for the local paper. Hey, almost perfect is a heck of a lot better than most of the run of the mill jerks that pose for romance heroes. Zanita is the only female in the known universe non-linear (read: weird) enough to confound him. Together they create a delightful duo, setting forth to solve a mystery involving a local con artist.
A note to Matrix of Destiny fans: There's just enough left unexplained and hinted at to cause me to doubt that Tyber is entirely human; his Familiar-like cat is the best allusion to the Matrix of Destiny trilogy that Dara could have thrown in . Not to mention his eccentric lifestyle and the fact that he is an extraordinaryily gifted genius/Renaissance man. Perhaps this is the seed for a future tie-in novel between the two universes. We can only hope.

Tyberius Augustus Evans is gorgeous, brilliant, rich, kind to animals, small children and kooks, sexy, eccentric, and secure enough in himself to fall utterly and completely in love. This is a fantasy hero - no real man could ever compete with Tyber. There's no angst here, no dark and brooding secrets, simply the perfect man.
When an author writes a romance with a hero such as this, the heroine has to be handled correctly. I mean, what we've read before tells us that if she falls too hard and too fast, there will be no conflict and therefore no story. Did Dara Joy follow that steadfast rule? Not on your life. The set-up for Zanita, our heroine, is that she's never experienced fulfillment because she's always held herself back, never allowed herself to become befuddled. Her best friend has advised her that she'll know when it's the real thing when she jumps in feet first.
Which is precisely what happens; Zanita falls for Tyber asap, and before she knows it, she's completely befuddled. Ah, you say, if she's befuddled, does that make her too stupid to live? Well, I certainly didn't think so. She didn't get herself into situations she couldn't get out of, although the hero's mastery prevented many of the situations from getting out of control (just another reason to love him!)
Humorous romances require quirkiness of character. Zanita, as Tyber puts it, is a genius in non-linear thinking. Perhaps I relate to her; my husband says I get from A to C via Q. My synapses fire differently than most. So do Zanita's (okay, so her name is a bit on the zany side, but I can live with that!).
So, does her befuddled-ness annoy our hero? In many romances, it does, and that's where the humor generally is found - think Bewitching or A Basket of Wishes.

I like Joy's Matrix of Destiny series, but this book was very disappointing to me. I usually read a book in a couple of days, but I kept putting this one down because it annoyed me, then picking it back up hoping I'd been wrong. I left the last 50 pages unread because I just didn't care any more.
The problem was in the tone of the book and of the two main characters. The hero is a brilliant physicist. He condescends to the heroine at every turn. He thinks her dumbness is cute. She mistakes a physics class for a psychic healing seminar. Ain't she cute. She even has an itty bitty job of her own-- she's a reporter. Of course, it's for the family paper and they gave her that job to keep her out of trouble. But that's OK, the big strong smart man is now there to make all her decisions for her. Gag.
Joy's heroes Rejar and Rian are wonderful because no matter how arrogant they are, they respect their heroines. I wish that part of her style had been carried over into this book.
