I have to admit, I waffled back and forth on my rating, because at times, I wasn't enjoying this as much as I wanted to. And I'm having a hard time figuring out exactly why I didn't. I did like the overall concept and plot of the story. I enjoyed the back and forth and banter between the characters of JT, Christian and Elliot, since Nolan and Michelle weren't present quite as much. Michelle, I couldn't like very much at all.
I couldn't fully buy into the relationship with Rudy and JT. I feel like Rudy's character became much younger than he was supposed to be. He seemed to fit better within the first part of the story but regressed toward the latter half. And the relationship he and JT were supposed to be building seemed little more than sex-fueled lust. Darien can write the hell out of a sex scene, and my inner perv has enjoyed many of them! So surprisingly, I didn't like some of them in this book. I think it was the context, the way the sex was used to express they were supposed to be falling in love. Rudy refers to JT's "sexual lure" a couple of times and how the attraction was "magical". Just put me off for some reason.
I did become invested in the story, but mostly because of the sci-fi aspect, not the romance. I wanted to know what the mysterious goings-on were and what might be found. I honestly could have cared less what JT and Rudy were doing. I did not completely understand the incident at Rudy's apartment. It felt like a very contrived plot device to bring the characters back together. It had been at least a couple of weeks, if not more, since Rudy had left, and was a much more extreme retaliation than any previous. I had a couple of other niggles, but I don't want to give anything away about the story, to explain it.
I appreciated seeing Peter and Ben in this story, although I questioned the timeline and ages that seemed to differ a bit from "Seducing Professor Coyle". I wish I knew why they moved. Peter just bought that house!
I did choose a 4 star rating because it was certainly never boring, never dragged and I was anxious to get to the resolution. I did appreciate the character building, which built slowly, as did the suspense and mystery. I think I'll probably enjoy any subsequent books more. First books are often harder to get into, and, I'm sure, harder for the author to write, with all the world and character building for a story arc. I do hope a little more care with editing is given in future books. There were several errors in this one. But Mr. Cox will remain an auto-buy author for me.
Great start to the series. Sexy and laugh out loud funny.
