What do you get when SciFi action and steamy erotica join together in book form? Sasha's Calling! Sasha's Calling is an enjoyable read, full of plenty of action—of both the steamy and heart-pounding variety!

This novella tells the tale of Sasha Smirnov's risky journey to steal top-secret technology plans from another planet in hopes that it will be able to save her own planet from imminent destruction. She knows this isn't an easy mission, but she's prepared to do anything to save her father—and her planet. However, she never planned on meeting an ambassador while escaping...Nor did she plan on finding herself a slave to the desires he sparks within her. He's an addiction she can't undo, no matter how much she tries to distance herself from him. He must be using some form of very powerful pheromones to make her react this way....Right?

But when Sasha realizes that she might care just as much about Dirk as she does the fate of her world, she doesn't know what to do. Does she trust her heart or keep it protected and carry on her mission? Could she even live with herself if she did the latter?

One thing is certain: Sasha's Calling is heavy on the erotica element (which is not a bad thing necessarily). However, while I love my books steamy, I enjoy them to have more...substance, more romance to go along with it. I didn't get a good read on either Sasha or Dirk's characters, and I didn't see the romance between them.

The lust was there, sure. But even it was a bit off. For one thing, the story would be in the middle of something (conversations, getaways, fights, etc) and suddenly clothes would go flying as Sasha jumped Dirk's bones (or vice versa). Okay, I get it: they were hot and heavy for each other. Great! But are you telling me that they are going to stop mid-conversation and have sex? Or worse, that in the middle of a chase, when they are running for their life, they are going to stop in an alley for a quickie? It might be hot in theory, but in reality—not so much. Run, people, screw each other later!
