    Literally and figuratively out of this world.

    4 Stars Review by Sasha Late Night Reviewer Up All Night w/ Books Blog Maverick by Cheryl Brooks is an entertaining outer space novel that brings to life a world that you could never think to imagine. Everyone is looking for their one true love. For some, the process is quick and easy while others it can take a lifetime. For Althea, finding her true love is a little bit more difficult due to her mixed bloodline. Her parents have given her beautiful gifts that come along with her lifeline. Finding her one true love would mean that she has found her perfect match, and that has slowly been seeming less and less like it will happen. One of those gifts being that she can sense others peoples feelings and desires. This has caused her brain to be overwhelmed and lead her to run off to a secluded planet. Just when she thinks all hope is lost her childhood friend, Larry, comes to find her. With him, he brings the reminder of the life that she had thought she left behind. Larry comes to see her so that he can help reveal the true feelings of this earth girl that he loves. Suddenly, Althea finds herself noticing Larry in different ways and wondering how she never noticed the boy next door. The characters species and planets are literally out of this world. I found myself trying to fathom how one person could see the inspiration to come up with everything wrapped in this novel. Some of the language that she had created is so creative that I am in pure admiration, and would love to know how her brain works. Due to this crazy concept, I found that it was hard to get into the story at the beginning. All of the background information was just so strange and difficult to process up front. Once the information was laid out, and the story took off when I found myself settling into the story more. I would give this novel 4 out of 5 stars. I found that the character development was terrific and gave all of the characters such a dynamic and heartwarming characteristics to them. Each character brought their own twist and turn to the story, and this created a much more vibrant plot line. It kept changing and kept you guessing what would be happening in the next chapter. It was a thrilling read and takes you to a world that is literally and figuratively out of this world.

    I never read any of the books in the Cat Star Chronicles, but this is it’s own series and while there were some brief mentions of the past reading the other books before this is not necessary to follow along. My main issue with this book is that it is so slow. The first half of the book was spent with the main characters and one other in space traveling peacefully to get some friends who were stranded on another planet. So there was just a lot of discussion about the leads realizing they are attracted to each other, even thought they have known each other their entire lives. That’s it. No conflict, no urgency, just a lot of awkwardness. Finally after 75% of the way in a conflict was introduced, but there was never a feeling of urgency. Within a few pages it was resolved and everyone lives happily ever after. Basically this book was boring. The characters were interesting. Larry was fun and charismatic, but since they barely interacted with others he never got to shine. Al’s psychic abilities were amazing, and unfortunately underused. And I liked the impossible love Brak felt which was heartbreaking and unselfish, however the resolution for his character annoyed me because I hate when authors feel the need to explain away being gay. It’s a story that could’ve been good, but fell terribly short. I doubt I will be continuing with this series.

    4 Star Maverick

    The Zetithian felines are back along with a whole host of other aliens in this hot, spicy and adventurous cosmic romance. Larry and Althea are bold and fierce characters that easily draw readers into their world as a distress call sets on a path into danger. Larry and Althea’s romance is a bit unexpected (for them) as they fight their sizzling undeniable attraction with snarky wit and Althea’s empathic powers add a whole other dimension to this relationship as she sets out to help him discover what he truly desires. The relationship is feisty with quite a bit of turbulence that certainly keeps things interesting during this courtship while they become the champions of truth and justice throughout the galaxy. Surprising twists adds to the exhilarating and adrenaline pumping adventure, thrilling suspense and fascinating alien elements found in this steady to fast paced and smooth flowing plot. The varying planet settings are well developed and the author paints vivid images of her world so that the readers can easily imagine each and every setting as they get to know all the fascinating characters involved which makes it easy for readers to become caught up in this sexy space adventure. Some unique alien features, some of which are on the sensual and racy side add to the hotness factor of this read and I quite fascinated by the ideas put forth in Larry Althea’s romantic escapades, which has me quite curious and looking forward to visiting more of this intriguing world.
