The year is 2322. Humanity has expanded into the stars, inhabiting over 100 worlds across a third of the galaxy. Though thriving as never before, they have discovered neither alien life nor the key to utopia. Earth struggles to retain authority over far-flung planets and free-wheeling corporations while an uneasy armistice with a breakaway federation hangs by a thread as the former rebels rise in wealth and power.
Could not finish listening to this book

Intelligent female perspective of a space romance.
Decent storyline, well written.
Following characters during the initial setup requires a bit of concentration.
I stopped half way through to write this review because It started to feel too emotionally overbearing for me. Explaining all the little intricacies of a budding relationship between two intelligent, stubborn, alphas who should almost be enemies, went just a bit too far to hold me.
Storyline was detailed and consequences for characters decisions explained but there was nothing that made me feel right in there beside the characters.

Tamer king of Dinosaurs

Almost certain this was written by a pubescent teenager.
I can appreciate how difficult being a writer is and I typically wouldn't disparage a novel regardless of whether I personally enjoyed it or not. But this is cringeworthy.
I'm a warm blooded male and even I found this difficult to listen to. 5 minutes in and I was discouraged. 5th chapter and I'm done. 4 male characters to date. 20+ females, all apparently aesthetically pleasing and described in minute detail, almost to the point of being considered softcore porn. It gets better, each female provides a singular personality trait of a generalised 'hot girls' emotional palate. for example; bubbly, cute and dumb barby or arrogant, snobbish, condecending princess.
All for a fantasy novel with a bit of, let's say, racey content, but this was like being punched in the ear with a 40yr old virgin, who lives in the basement of his grandmother's house, wet dream.
To be honest, I'm not even certain what the story was actually about. Dinosaurs on an alien planet?
Keep looking, you'll find more compelling reading material on the wall of toilet stall down at the local gas station.
