From the publisher:
After terrorists murder the love of her life, Major Mikayla Jones trains
squadron after squadron of the clones her husband helped develop to
take to the skies. When she discovers a young clone of her husband in
her newest class, her world spins out of control. How can she command
the look-a-like when she can’t help but yearn for him to fill the ache
in her heart?
Dare was created to be the best. As the first
Daniel clone to leave Onatria Labs, he needs to prove he is more than
just a DNA copy. To do that, he must rely on the wife of the man who
donated his genes. But when she refuses to train him, Dare faces
discharge and a return to the labs. Can he convince Major Jones to
finish his training—and find a way into her bed? Or will long-kept
secrets unhinge the entire clone project?
What I did like:
I'm a huge fan of the idea of cloning, and of
Jessica's previous works in general. Being faced with a clone of your
lost love sets up great potential for emotional and ethical conflict.
There's also a brilliant plot twist that was a tear-jerker, and had me physically reeling - I really hadn't expected it. The ending will leave you reaching for a hanky and hoping for a sequel.
What I didn't like:
For me, this focused a little too much on the sex
rather than the emotions behind it and the inner conflict of the main
characters. For all his claim of wanting to be the best, Dare seemed
more set on getting into Jones's panties, and for all her 'I shouldn't',
she didn't put up as much resistance as I would expect. I felt it could have been deeper and been explored more.
It wasn't as heart wrenching as some of her previous works,
and I would have liked to know much more about this near future world, and the
Fans of military-based scifi romances and
erotica will enjoy this. For me it lacked some emotional depth, and I
prefer my scifi more offworld, although I loved the cloning aspect and
the big twist. While this particular story may have missed the mark for
me a touch, I'm still a huge fan of J Subject's writing and will be back for more.
