Book Review #249 - Proximity (Proximity #1) by M.A. George

Proximity (Proximity, #1)

Dr. Palta Capal would be a typical American career woman…if only she were human.

She has found her calling in this world as a physician. It’s an ideal outlet for her compassionate spirit...and unearthly healing powers.

Palta may spend her nights rereading Jane Austen novels, but she deliberately avoids pursuing her own love story. Human men—attractive as they may be—inevitably grow old and wither, leaving her to grieve in solitude. Frankly, no one has seemed worth the torment.

Enter Eric Moran, the intensely attractive and enigmatic new coworker on the scene. With his quiet confidence and warm smile, he manages to draw Palta’s attention. Little does she know that he, too, holds a secret…one that will propel them both into an escalating collision of two worlds.
My Rating: 4/5
I received this book for review from the author. The author's Goodreads page is here. You can also find the author's website here.
Not being the biggest fan of the whole Science Fiction genre, this book really surprised me. I never expected to like this book as much as I did.
I thought that it started off slowly but the last third is so action packed it makes up for it.
Although I didn't particularly love any of the characters, I did like them all as a whole as I thought they bounced off one another really well.
I would have liked to have learnt more about Aeron because what was learnt about him was interesting. It also would have been good to have heard some of the story from his point of view.

I am looking forward to the next book so I can see how the cliff hanger gets resolved. I am also intrigued how Palta goes at discovering her roots.
