Excerpt ~*~

“Okay, let’s roll out.”

Out? Time to go, already?

The rest of the crew pushed away from the conference table and trooped out the door with excited murmurs. A far cry from the turmoil rolling through her.

“Let’s go, Malock.” Jager raised his eyebrows. “Or did you change your mind?”

She stood and released a deep breath. Even with her trepidation, she refused to back out now. Melina waited for her. “No, I’m looking forward to seeing Airondelle for myself.”

Brook spun away and rushed to catch up with her comrades. If she revealed her plans, she’d be stopped before she could find her lover. She would have to hide Melina right under their noses to bring her home. She pushed her shoulders back. I can do this. I have to.

The all-terrain vehicles sat loaded with equipment for the mission in front of the swirling mass of the portal. Her father certainly wasn’t wasting any time getting a team back to Airondelle. Crewmembers already filled the first vehicle, so she hopped into the back of the second.

Jager passed around everyone’s mission directives then shoved in on her left. Thank goodness he was the last to load. With his bulk, he occupied both of the remaining seats.

Before she had time to read her personal orders, they proceeded into the portal. She passed through the spinning matter, her body pulled and stretched in every direction. Unknown forces pushed on her chest, making it difficult to breathe. She gripped the seat, hoping she wouldn’t get pulled out. But the awkwardness didn’t last long. The transporter room light years away, clean, fresh air poured into her lungs. The alien vegetation of the foreign planet lined the rough dirt road they traveled. She yearned to explore the flora and fauna on a more intimate level. And she would, after setting up camp.

She opened the folder with her mission directive inside. Instead of the stack of papers detailing what Planet Core expected of her, she found a single sheet.

Her father’s handwriting scrawled across the page. You can never know the truth.

Hard, cold steel pressed against her temple. A gun. Her breath caught. What the fuck is going on? She grabbed her knapsack and launched out of the vehicle.

4 Star Review ~*~
Never Gonna Desert You is the second book on Jessica E. Subject's The Underground Series! You don't have to read the first book, Never Gonna Let You Go in order to enjoy this one.  Just be prepared that these are very quick reads at under 60 pages each.

Never Gonna Desert You is a fast paced sci~fi romance that gives you pause and makes you think about what life might be like on Earth someday. Brook has dealt with her father's controlling ways, the rules of this version of Earth, and a cheating boyfriend for far too long.  Now that she is making her own decisions, there is a lot that can do wrong ~ but so much more that can go right.  Brook bucks the system to be with Melina, but her happiness is not going to last long.

Jessica E. Subject manages to create a full story and Brook's character amazingly well in such a few amount of pages.  There is a well developed plot, that will continue with the series I'm sure ~ but she gives us satisfaction with the characters so it's not really a cliffhanger but there are unresolved issues. Brook was a great character with depth and someone I could empathize with, while Melina seemed to fall a little flat and I would have liked more depth to her character.

All in all, Never Gonna Desert You is a well written story with an interesting plot that will definitely make you want to read more of this series.
