Caught in Amber by Cathy Pegau
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
This is a fantastic sci-fi romance. One of my very favourites of all time.
Reformed drug addict Sasha is out of rehab and trying to get along on her own, and trying to stay clear of amber. After all, amber’s what got her in trouble in the first place: living the high life (pun intended) with top drug dealer Guy Christiansen. Trouble is, staying clear is easier said than done. Agent Nathan Sterling (briefly seen in Pegau’s previous work, Rulebreaker) needs Sasha’s help. In exchange for releasing her from parole, deactivating the chip in her neck, and even helping her get offworld, he needs her to get him into Christiansen’s circle to save his younger sister, now an amber addict.
From the first page, I was immediately captivated by Sasha, and stayed that way for the entire story. And from reading Rulebreaker, I’d been curious about Nathan Sterling, and for him to get his own book (so to speak), I could hardly wait to read.
Even if you’re not a big fan of sci-fi, you really should read Caught in Amber. Pegau’s world building is impressive, and I can promise you that you won’t be able to put this book down.
