Review: Unchained by C.J. Barry

Synopsis:  She'll risk everything to clear her family's name... including everything he has. Cidra Faulkner saw her family murdered and her people condemned for a crime they didn't commit. Now a skilled Kin-Sha warrior, she vows to track down the true culprit and exact justice, both for her family and all the Kin-Sha. Intergalactic treasure hunter Grey Stone had no intention of helping Cidra until his old mentor tricked him into it. Now he's trapped into helping the daughter of the man who brought about the downfall of his people -- a woman whose very presence jeopardizes all he's worked for. But honor won't let him say no. And love won't let him turn back. (from the back of the book)

Review: I picked up this book because Barry’s Unmasked was marvelous! This was not as good. The story had solid characters, action-packed plot, a believable villain, a few twists I didn’t see coming and even a dash of humor. My complaint was how quickly the hero and heroine fell in love.  It seemed – rushed and hard to believe. It lacked a depth that made me care - which is spoiled some of the story. I would recommend her other work before this one.

Prude Note: There are several sex scenes, clear but not graphic and easy to skip. I think I skipped all of them because they didn't add anything to the story.
