4.5 Stars I didn’t expect anything when I started the book, but I was instantly hooked and was unable to put it down until I finish it. The book was a series of revelations that will make you yearn to turn the next page just so you will know what happens next. It was an absolute delight to read. The plot was unexpected but well thought-out and unlike any other book I’ve ever read. And I’ve read quite a lot, so that’s saying something. It was a story about love, hate, forgiveness and finding love in unexpected places.
This was a great thriller from beginning to the end. The characters are well developed and engaging and the storyline is full of twists and turns making this an entertaining time.
Two hearts entwine across the cosmos in Mayumi Cruz’s romantic sci fi thriller Finding Kismet! When the secret of long and peaceful life is stolen from planet Vaelteuria, soldier Mavis is tasked with recovering it. Tracking it to Earth, she quickly discovers that her mission, and love, are not quite as straightforward as they may seem. I really enjoyed Cruz’s idea of science regulating everything, including love, for the Vaelteurians and Mavis’ struggle to break with that tradition. Cruz also interlaces a good thriller with the romance, blending both with fast paced and steamy description perfectly! This one’s perfect for both sci fi and romance lovers so be sure to check it out!
The plot of twists are maintained throughout the book. Must read if you’re a fan of romance+thriller genre
Reading the first chapter I wasn’t sure and was a little confused, However from chapter two I was gripped. If I could give this book more than 5* I would. I became totally invested in the characters, It was brilliant. So many twists and turns, it kept me hooked to the very end. I confess I didn’t see the ending coming at all. Well done Mayumi Cruz and thank you for a brilliant book.
My first book by the author that I thoroughly enjoyed. In such a short story Mayumi Cruz managed to turn a romantic dinner into a crime without us even suspecting it. A very enjoyable work highly recommended. I’ll look forward to reading a lot more books by the author.
I picked up this book to diversify my reading tastes with a nice thriller, and this short story intrigued me. It was a really quick read with a good ending. I feel that I can’t say much since it’s so short, it would give the whole story away. If you are looking for a nice quick thriller, I would recommend this! Though I would warn you: careful with this if you’re squeamish!
