The Connection

By

Loved it! 😍

Roswell meets the Lux Series is this amazing debut. This book had me completely hooked.

After the first chapter, I could tell that this book was going to resemble The Lux Series. The lux series is one of my all-time favourites, so I was genuinely interested in seeing where the author takes this story. I'm happy to say that I was not disappointed.


Beatrice thought she was a normal girl, until one day her world is turned upside-down. She is sought after by not only another alien-race but a secret government that her parents both worked for. In comes Cash, a hot alien that is hell bent on protecting Beatrice no matter the cost.


I instantly fell in love with Cash and Beatrice. Their relationship gave me butterflies and at one point I shed a couple of tears. There was so much at stake throughout the entire book, I honestly couldn't turn the pages fast enough.

Bea was sassy and fought against her life being taken over by protocols and orders. Cash was sarcastic and loved to ignite peoples anger for fun. They made a comical duo at times.


One thing I was not anticipating was the never ending action. I loved how there was never a dull moment, as our main characters seemed to never catch a break. I found myself getting quite emotional while reading from Bea's perspective. I was very surprised at how quickly the author was able to make me care.


I think this book was very well done. The only thing I wish it had was something extra to distinguish it from the young adult stories I have read prior. I loved it, don't get me wrong, but the story has in a sense been done before.


I think it's safe to say that Dana Claire has a way of getting under your skin, because Beatrice and Cash have made it to my favourite characters list. I can't wait to see what the author does next! I really hope it's the sequel to this novel. That cliffhanger at the end makes me want to read book two as soon as possible.


I highly recommend The Connection to YA science fiction lovers. I don't think you will be disappointed.
