"This book gets 5 stars because Alyssa Cole just single handedly made this almost strictly sci-fi and fantasy reader a romance fan!<br/><br/>I was drawn in with an MC struggling with the realities of being a Black woman in STEM... then I finished 40% of it in one sitting! This was also a super hetero romance and I still loved it so much!"
