Unfinished-Finders Keepers by Linnea Sinclair

Read For:
ROR Summer Challenge
Fantasy Challenge

Trilby Elliot is a barely legal independent trader. Rhis Vanur is the arrogant Zafharin military officer she rescued from a crash landing. It would have been a miracle if they survived each other's company on Trilby's slapdash starfreighter even under the best of circumstances. And these are far from the best of circumstances. For Trilby's best friend is missing and the warlike 'Sko are hunting both Trilby and Rhis. Suddenly they're in it together, for better, for worse--or until death blasts them to oblivion...

My review:
This book started out well, but fell flat when the heroine turned "angry brat" just because the hero didn't tell her he was a starship captain. This conflict should have been tidied up in a couple chapters, but when we have this go on for over 100 pages? Am I reading a "supposed" thoughtful, mature Sci Fi romance, or some hokey Harlequin? Again-authors-how can you develop a relationship between the hero/heroine-when all you have them do is "fight"? To top it off-the hero is constantly thinking nice things about the heroine, and helping her, and she's being frankly, a bitch. I quit it 350 pages in-yep-I tried to stick with it but Trilby's childishness just threw me off any enjoyment I may have had in the storyline. I'll try another of this author's books and hope this was just "debut novel" problems.

2 stars.
