I LOVED these characters. They were down to earth, resourceful, funny, smart and clicked better than veggies and jello ever could! They listened to each other and respected each other’s opinion. Of course they also admired each other’s *ahem* physical attributes. They built their relationship supersonic quickly while dodging laser blasts and bounty hunters but the pace felt just right. There was action and intrigue, lust and emotion in a futuristic story that balanced everything perfectly. No, really, perfectly. I laughed, I swooned, I thought this was a couple uniquely suited to each other despite their surface differences.
“…if she could hit a cricket at one hundred yards it would be no problem to blast his balls off if anyone went near you with restraints.”
I sighed dreamily…
“…if by some chance they got all the way through, they’d have to deal with me… No one wants to do that.”
This story blocked everything else out until the last page was turned. Blissful sigh… I need more!

I honestly didn’t expect to like this novel. It sounded like a space opera, which it not at all my genre, but I was so wrong! Rege’s Rescue was a great romance novel and may have opened a whole new world for me to explore.
The novel begins with fantastic action, a la in medias res. I love when a novel does that. Too much preamble makes me antsy and frustrated, and Amethe’s story doesn’t have any of that. The reader is immediately thrust into her daring rescue. The great dialogue catches you up and keeps you from getting lost even with the crazy names of characters and places. You won’t be bored or exasperated—I promise. This one is all about the love story. It’s not one of those space movies your husband forces you to sit through.
The character development is good within the context of the novel though the back story was a bit weak on Rege. I would have liked to have heard more about his history. The writing is also quite good with fast pacing and numerous turns to navigate. At times, some events were serendipitous, and the grand finale was a tad corny, but those things didn’t detract from my enjoyment of the story. I could easily see a series in this one!
Luckily, my sub-conscious nudged me to go forward with Rege’s Rescue. Sometimes I just need to stop thinking so much and go with my feelings. It can pay off just like it did when I read this book!
Speaking of going with feelings, in Rege’s Rescue, Rege and Amethe need to figure out how to do that too. We’ve all seen it. Two people who are obviously developing feelings for each other, but they think of a million reasons why it will never work. In Rege’s Rescue, it will take about 230 pages for the heroine and hero to figure out the payoff, but it is so worth watching them do it. In the meantime, Rege and Amethe will have some adventures, get into trouble and need saving. And repeat! The book is mostly romance, but there is a lot of fun and danger along the way.
Rege and Amethe are personality opposites. Rege is dark and, dare I say, brooding. Convinced his past has made him no good. Amethe is light and cheerful, despite the nasty situation she has gotten thrown into. She has had the advantage of having a family that has made sure her life has been decent. Amethe sees the good in everyone. Is this an opposites attract romance? I don’t think so. While Rege may be drawn to Amethe’s inherent goodheartedness, I don’t think Amethe is looking at Rege’s dark past. She sees the man who rescued her in the present.
There is not much of a back story here. Rege’s past is murky as is the history of the group of men he has banded with to save the universe from evil. Amethe’s father and brother also have critical roles, but not much character development. These were just things I considered after I had read the book and did not detract from the story. Like I said, the book is mostly romance. A well developed heroine and a complex hero were all that was necessary to enjoy Rege’s Rescue.
You should consider reading Rege’s Rescue if you like a romance in a futuristic setting, space ships, tough guys, strong women, buddies, family, danger, adventure and a happily ever after!
