Lost in Starlight

20707942

I was recently contacted about Lost in Starlight and I just had to share. This looks like a great book.

(Excerpt from Goodreads) Star reporter Sloane Masterson knows she has one helluva story when she witnesses hottie Hayden Lancaster bending forks with his mind.

Like any good journalist, Sloane sets out to uncover the truth, even if it includes a little stalking. When the superhuman feats start to pile up and the undeniable heat rises between them, Hayden has no choice but to reveal his secret: he’s an alien hybrid.

They’re as different as night and day—she’s a curvy, purple-haired, horror junkie and he’s a smoking hot, antisocial, brainiac—yet the intense fascination between them refuses to go away. Even at Hayden’s insistence that dating each other is “off limits” and dangerous, their fiery attraction threatens to go supernova.

Now Sloane’s dealing with creepy government agents, über snobby extraterrestrials, and a psycho alien ex-girlfriend out for revenge. After a crash course on the rules of interstellar dating, Sloane must decide if their star-crossed romance is worth risking her own life….

Sounds great, right?!

Purified by Brian Robert Smith

4 stars

(Excerpt from Goodreads) “There’s no use trying to escape. You’re miles from anywhere. You have no clothes, no food, no money… You’re dead, Mason.” As far as everyone else is concerned, Mason Bushing died over a year ago, but now he’s running from Dr. Harlow who is secretly conducting an unauthorized experiment for a drug he calls Purify. It saved Mason’s life, but Mason is focused on getting what he wants most-his old life back. His plans change when he realizes his wife is more interested in the insurance money she inherited than seeing him alive. His best friend doesn’t believe his story, and the police intend on charging him with fraud and assault after he almost kills his wife’s boyfriend. Warren is a detective who’s assigned the case. He’s been on personal leave because his wife died. His investigation turns up suspicions of lying, disturbing coincidences, and related homicides. When Mason becomes the prime suspect, he’s forced to run again. Imagine having to run from someone who saved your life. Imagine everyone thinking you’re dead, but you’re really alive. Questions, accusations, conspiracies… murder. What if this was all caused by a drug that’s creating the next physical evolution of man? What would you do if you were Purified?

Mason died from terminal cancer then was revived by Dr. Harlow and his miracle drug Purify. The problem with this is Dr. Harlow feels those that he has revived should do his bidding in thanks for bringing them back. Mason does not agree. We start this story as Mason has escaped and is trying to return to his hometown and pick up where his life ended. But he has to learn the hard way that things don’t just wait around after you are dead.

Warren is a detective that is heart broken after loosing his wife to cancer. He is called in to investigate Mason. He doesn’t believe Mason; no one just comes back from the dead. So he starts an investigation into fraud. Meanwhile, Mason is trying to get one with his life but at every turn things keep way laying him.

This is a modern take on Frankenstein. You have the insane doctor testing on human subjects then expecting them to be his minions when they are brought back to life. It also doesn’t help that there are failed experiments to help sure Mason into getting back to his old life. I felt sad about Mason dying from cancer but when you learn about his prior life I had to laugh about karma.

I really liked this book. It’s a great thriller/horror story. I can’t wait for more from Brian Robert Smith.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
