"Houston, we have a problem: Five Stars just ain’t gonna cut it for this book!!!
NASA engineer Dr. Jackie Darling Lee is a genius about many things... the male species is not one of them (despite the many cowboy romances she reads).
Then a little friendly blackmail from a co-worker has Jackie walking into a Texas saloon ready to initiate Operation Social Life.
After making friends with her waitress and helping a drunk country beauty get home safely, she thinks she’s off to a good start.
Flynn West left his family’s rich ranching life behind after discovering his girlfriend’s gold digging ways. Now he specializes in vintage muscle car restorations in his own shop in Houston.
He’s taken women off his radar, until a wild-haired blonde drags his drunk little sister through his front door.
The moment he sees those thick, black-framed glasses on that slender nose, Flynn’s captivated. Ignitions ignite, and not just from Flynn’s skills at hot-wiring cars.
But in the midst of the International Space Station being threatened and old flames reappearing, can Jackie and Flynn let go of old hang-ups long enough to reach the end of their Happily Ever After countdown?
Or will it be a failure to launch?
"Prepare yourself for a panty-melting rom-com."
Funny with great narration
This book is so funny, filled with fun characters and a different type of premise for the story. Jackie is awkward, funny and brilliant. Flynn is quite taken with Jackie but due to family history he’s not looking for a relationship.
As with most couples they run into some challenges due to misunderstandings and they just need to communicate! But when things are good…they are good - smokin hot.
Highly recommend this fun and entertaining read.
Samantha Brentmoor and Lee Samuels did a fantastic job. Samantha has become one of my favorite narrators…I love her voice and delivery of the characters. This is my first listen to Lee Samuel’s and I really enjoyed his narration. He brought great emotion to the characters.
Jackie & Flynn
Space Junk: Houston, We Have a Hottie
Space Series, Book 1
By: Sara L Hudson
Narrated by: Samantha Brentmoor, Lee Samuels
My first Sara L Hudson book, has me laughing out loud and falling in love! Fun, quirky characters and an original storyline had me at the first chapter. Jackie is a nerdy, converse wearing NASA engineer, with dreams of being an astronaut. After taking her friend, Jules, advice and going out, she finds herself taking her drunk friend Rose home. There she meets Flynn, Rose's handsome brother. But the interest he takes in her can't be real, right? And if it is, it won't last. History has shown that. Flynn is intrigued with the wannabe astronaut, but when push comes to shove, and Jackie gets her dream, will Flynn be on board with it? Fun, flirty, humorous, quirky, this story has it all. The characters are lovable and relatable. The story is fun, romantic and exciting! I love strong heroines, and Jackie is the best! Hudson has me hooked and I will be listening to more!
Samantha Brentmoor and Lee Samuels bring this fun, unconventional listen alive with a phenomenal narration. Both of these talented narrators have spot on comedic timing and pinpoint each personality with perfect precision. I love their chemistry and the performances.
Great narration, smart female lead, lots of laughs
This is the first Sara L Hudson book I've read/listened to. Jackie and Flynn's story stands alone, though there are a bunch of fun characters introduced and I'm excited to read more of the series to see what's in store for them. I liked the writing style which contains a lot of good comparisons to really illustrate points. I also like that the female lead is smart.
The audiobook is performed by Samantha Brentmoor and Lee Samuels. Together they make a rock solid narration team. They were easy to listen to and they added emotion and energy to the story.
I received a copy of the audiobook at my request, and the opinions here are my own.
