    4 Shiny Stars: This is a short and there are some major flaws to this book but overall I enjoyed it a lot. This stands out from O'Connor's other books which are typically less on the sci fi and heavy on the 'romance'. Typically O'Connor writes what I would deem a futuristic touch of sci fi survival romance stories. This particular book is more science fiction/suspense with romance. This book isn't for you if:-You're heavily invested in thorough world building -You prefer your sci/fi romance books to weigh heavier on the romance side- OR: (view spoiler)[ You would find man eating jellyfish/manta ray aliens too tame after all of the suspense, I thought it was fine, it wasn't a let down in terms of 'wow this isn't scary enough'... (hide spoiler)]My major issue with the book was that it was too short. Although I am not a glutton for books upon books of world building before plot kicks in, I do think this book will benefit from more description of their environment. This book is for you if you like firm HEA's, and mermen.

    I really like the mystery/suspense plot to this novel, which has a deep-space-mining feel even though the action takes place in a rig under water. However, the romance between Victoria, the supervisor of the crew sent to the watery planet to extract ore for the shadowy "company", and Raphael, the genetically-bred merman crewmember, left me feeling a little clammy. Maybe it was the whole tail fins, underwater breathing, "hatching" from an incubator, etc. But the two of them felt off, somehow. And Raphael was definitely the warmer of the two.I finished reading the story while my daughter watched the latest episode of Ariel the Mermaid. Maybe I am okay with mermaid sex. Ariel's daddy sure is built for an older guy. ;)

    This is a sci-fi / romance story about the monsters that attack a mining crew that is newly arrived on a planet.It was ok, but I didn't enjoy this story as much as most of her Ms. O'Connor's other books. Strangely, it has one of the better endings of any of her books (and I have many of them).I recommend that if you read this book, you also read 'Lords of the Sea' and 'Dark Abyss'.

    Before writing something "related" to SF (even with an erotic twist), please do some research. The story is cliché, full of references unexplored and the writing is boring and dull. I only got to page 27 when I almost fell asleep and for an erotic novel, that is not good.

    I like the storyThis book wasn't quite what I had expected from Mrs. Kaitlyn. This was a very refreshing read from her previous book that I had read. Sadly the world building was quite lacking and the conclusion to all the things that had happened was wrapped up in a rush. With how the angst had build up I had expected it to be more. Though I did like the idea of the story and would recommend it to everyone to give it a try not sure everyone would love it.

    This book is more romantic than the other books I've read by Kaitlyn O'Connor, but not as good as The 9th Orb or The Enslaved series. Still it was quite an enjoyable read.As usual I liked the female main character. Victoria a strong person who knows what to do when shit hits the fan. Victoria arrives at Kay, a planet that had been partially explored by her company. Her mission is to find out what happened to the crew of miners that had been at Kay before her own crew, as they all mysteriously disappeared with no signs of struggle. As she and her current crew search through the last crew's files, one of the members of her crew vanishes. Victoria and Raphael, one of the deep sea miners, who was genetically modified with aquatic traits, start developing a romantic relationship. Later, Victoria finds herself unexpectedly pregnant with Raphael's child.As secrets start be revealed about her company's real intentions, Victoria discovers that her company had intended to abandon the deep sea miners after the minerals were explored.After a few weeks on Kay, a jelly-fish like species is detected, and later, that they were the reason why people kept disappearing.I recommend this book to Kaitlyn O'Connor's fans and of course, sci-fi romance readers.

    Kind of reminds me a little bit of Deep Star Six and Leviathan. A little bit of Sci Fi Horror. Was pretty good but would have like some details to the ending. They are rescued but there is no explanation of what happened when they returned. Would have liked more closure.

    The conclusion happened way to fast. The build up worked but wow way to blow past the wrapping things up. This book is also published as Abandoned.

    I really liked it, despite some glaring editorial errors. I did feel the ending was very abrupt, so it was a bit of a let down. 3.5 stars.

    The plot had potential but felt disjointed, like the author was writing something else or thinking about something else and this was typed up and sent off without proof reading :(
