Review :: Blue Shift
Warning: This review contain spoilers
I don´t really think Science Fiction and porn is a good match. The story was readable, but the sex scenes totally ridiculous and unnecessary. Does it make science fiction that someone is trapped in a laser cage? Full of cliché really. A romance novelist just placed the story in space. I don´t know if that makes it science fiction. Maybe I rated it too high… but I don´t like to give mean scores. After all, someone has spent a whole lot of time and trouble writing this.

After university and a brief and very misguided spell as a teacher, she decided it would be better for everyone if she stayed at home and looked after her children. She wrote her first novel when her youngest was a baby, and has published numerous contemporary and erotic romances with Harlequin Escape and Carina UK. But what she really wanted to write was a book about a space pirate in which she could blow things up...
