Genre: Sci Fi Romance
Sasha is a freelance acquisitions specialist, in other words a thief for hire. While fleeing with the goods on her latest job she discovers a technology that will save not only her dying home planet, but possibly dozens of others. Knowing that this information must be given to people who will help others she acquires as much information about it as possible.
With the goods that her employer desires and the technology that will hopefully save countless lives Sasha stows away on a ship leaving her pursuers behind. The problem now lies with the man who is the owner/pilot of the ship, Dirk. Sasha can’t keep her mind, body, mouth (keep filling in the blanks with body parts) off of him. With Dirk as a constant distraction how will she ever get the data to the right people?
Sasha’s Calling had a nice mix of sci fi, humor, romance and action. Sasha having to work with a team for the first time ever was exciting to read, she’s a loner who doesn’t follow orders well. The boob be gone cream scene is too funny and so male. If that technology did in fact exist I can easily imagine too many men doing exactly what he did if the opportunity were to present itself.
The entirety of Sasha’s Calling is told from Sasha’s point of view. Readers spend much time in her head. She is constantly over thinking everything. I would have loved to have seen some of this book from Dirk’s point of view. It would have been interesting to know more about him also.
