Stellar (The Portal Connection Book 1) Kindle Edition
Being revealed as a Portal was like finding out you had the plague.
Nobody wanted to be anywhere near you, especially if you were as strong as Jacinta was proving to be. As if she didn’t have enough things on her plate already.
Raised by a cult, malnourished and ripped from the first place she'd ever felt safe, Jacinta's world had been turned on its head.
To make matters worse, there was the Pure Human movement who saw all Portals as mutants who should be destroyed. At least her protective detail was on her side. They weren’t friends, but they seemed to have her best interests at heart.
As for the rest? Well, who knew if she'd live long enough to even think about it.
Jacinta was in a race against time to manage her ability before it tore her apart - mind, body and soul. Could her team protect her from not only the unseen dangers around her, but from her own ability?
This is a slow burn series where the female lead will have more than one love interest and will not be required to choose.
Stellar is a book, packed with action and tension and contains scenes that may cause distress to some readers, including but not limited to gun violence, assault and mentions of severe family dysfunction. This book is not suitable for readers under the age of 18 years
What reviewers are saying:
"I loved this book so hard. The characters were well developed and engaging. There's enough action and mystery to choke a cow. I have so many questions that I need answered. I'll just crawl under the cover of my bed and wait for the next book." - Helle Gade, http://hellegade.com

The only reason this was not 5 stars for me was how the author described and kept making poor references to Hammer's skin. He is a member of the protective detail and who I'm assuming will end up in her harem. He was described as skin so dark it was almost black whereas a biracial character had glowing skin, or something positive like thay. There was also some other references to how dark he was and not in a positive way. As a Black woman, it irked me. I hope the wording changes in future books.
When I read the blurb of this book I didn’t really know what to expect, but this book is absolutely brilliant in my opinion. I love a good slow burn that focusses on plot and a good story line, and this one absolutely delivered. I love the connections between the military guys, the way they find a place for Jacinta between them, but also the intrigue and power struggles within the military. I’m a sucker for lingering questions and secrets, and this book has plenty of those but also just enough flow to stay on the edge of angst and frustration.
I highly recommend reading this start of a series! It’s an amazing slow burn with multiple POV
I wish it was a little longer but other than that no complaints it really was pretty perfect.
I loved that the author didn't throw instant lust/love or $ex into muddy the water with this one, but actually concentrated on developing the characters and plot with just enough attraction and interaction to have you salivating for more.
I can't wait and will be stalking book two hoping it releases early!
For those going in thinking you know what a portal is then get chapters in and find out what everyone understands portals to be in this world for most of the book then bam that ending will leave you stalking book two right along with me!😁
Kudos to the author for delivering such a great book to start the series off with, great job!
I loved this book. The concept and world building was so good. I love Jacinta she is a great character. Her protectors are all great and I can’t wait to see their interactions going forward.
I am really looking forward to reading the next book in the series and definitely recommend this book!!

I loved this story, its something completely different. For me it was definitely a case of 'just one more chapter' which ended up with me finishing the book at 2am!
Jacinta is a portal, which means she pretty much turns into a potential nuclear bomb when she has 'events'. She also emits radiation and extreme heat so she's been added to the government Portal programme, for both her own safety and the public. She even gets her own military protection team.
I loved Jacinta, she was really entertaining to read, full of sarcasm and humour, she didn't let her situation get her down too much, no matter how scared she was. The protection team feel a connection with 'Jack' and are very protective of her, Hammer was super sweet with carrying her places.
I am loving the direction this book seems to be going in and I can't wait to read book 2.
