I am vociferously passionate about good books. And I hate adverbs.

Book Review - The Maker Jock, by S. A. McAuley

The Maker Jock - S.A. McAuley

Yes, I loved this. Short but brilliant. (Thankfully, there is a continuation). 

And also brilliant is the message within,

that if you invent something very important for the future of the world, you can't just sell it off for money. You need to work to make it available. For all.

(show spoiler)



Refreshing to see true moral values popping up in romance books. Absolutely brilliant. 

I love Alex so much, he is a darling, brilliant man. And Christian is absolutely tops too—only I would have a new name for him. I hate that name. 

This author does it for me on so many levels, both language-wise and in regards to actual subjects treated within the stories themselves. And I adore that Alex's mother is a daughter of an eastern immigrant, and his father the son of a Welsh one. Makes both for interesting looks and brain-wave DNA patterns. I love mixing.

Stunning story, and I only found one single error. (Yes, I'm talking about when to use the verbs lie or lay. I know, I know, but it's my thing. I like well-written prose, okay?) And honestly, I'm seeing that error so often these days I think it will become normal soon.

I was given an ARC from the author in exchange for an honest review. 

This is that review.
