In a galaxy torn apart by war....
Mara Skiren is a scavenger, a black-market dealer. Blackmailed into helping Commander Kell Frayne infiltrate a treacherous corner of the galaxy, Mara learns that her biggest danger is from her sexy, by-the-book partner. She's a loner with more than a few battle scars on her heart, but something about Commander Frayne stirs up her long-buried need for an intimate connection.
An ace pilot for the elite Black Wraith Squadron, Kell's mission is to rescue a lost pilot and ship. Unable to deny his attraction to the beautiful, rebellious Mara, he decides bedding her would cool his ardor. But one taste is not nearly enough, and he finds himself sharing more of his real self with her than he has with anyone.
With deadly criminals on their heels and an increasingly dangerous assignment to complete, he's starting to wonder - if they survived, could he let her go? And will Mara want to stay?

A fun ride
This book reads like an 80s B-rate action space opera with extra spice... and I mean that in the best way possible. The pacing is brisk but it never feels rushed and the characters, setting and story are given enough time to establish themselves to the reader. Mara's sexual agency that she's never ashamed for is a breath of fresh air I welcome wholeheartedly. Despite being a fan of both romance and sci-fi, I've found a lot of books in the sci-fi/space opera romance department quite lacking in quality. This book definitely scratched that itch for me. I'll be checking out more of Zoe Archer's books in the future. Bonnie Dee Jones' narration did great in keeping the book fun, exciting and sexy as well. There was no time where I was taken out of the story due to strained voices which is a problem I have with some romance books. Don't expect deep literature but expect a fun ride with this one. Recommended.
Good Sci-fi Romance Book
If you could sum up Collision Course in three words, what would they be?
This book has it all! romance, action and all in a sci-fi setting.
Any additional comments?
Up to this point in my reading I have never read a sci-fi romance book, and now i am most defiantly going to find more in this category to read. I thought it was a very good book to get interested in the sci-fi romance. The narration was excellent and the store line had all of the main points i feel that a romance book should have, fast past, action, a good romance story with just enough stem but not over the top.
