The Star Princess by Jessica E. Subject - Top Ten Things and Review

A Beyond Fairytales audio book
By Jessica E. Subject
New Adult Erotic Sci-Fi Romance
Publisher: Decadent Publishing
ISBN: 978-1-61333-765-3


Narrated by Jon Filipko

In one week, Princess Ro’sa will board a spaceship, leaving her home on Minjet to be with her betrothed on Earth. The only problem is, she detests the prince’s selfish and arrogant ways, preferring to spend time with his personal aide, a man who stirs her desires in ways she never imagined possible with his radiant blue eyes and smouldering lips. And oh, the way he touches her.

Earth’s post-apocalyptic landscape offers little but the alliance offers much and a princess must do her duty, no matter the danger to her person and to her heart.

I've listened to a couple of audio books - it's a new thing for me, and I have to admit this one was my favourite so far. I can't believe I hadn't read one of Jessica's books yet. Her writing really appeals to me. It was sexy and sweet, with the perfect conflict and touch of romance. She kept the pace going well - no dragging, but enough detail to make the story so fascinating. Her writing style was easy to read and identify with. The romance was completely satisfying.

I loved the alien world she created. She has a way of creating a world without detracting from the human story. There weren't too many descriptions or details of anything insignificant, but enough to create an interest. There were plenty of fascinating twists and turns into the novella plot - unusual for a short book, and the characterisation was realistic and authentic. I have one complaint - I would have liked it to be longer, purely because I was enjoying it so much.

I also really enjoyed the narrator's style and voice.
