Publisher's Summary

Some jobs are just too good to be true.

Captain Matt Spears learns this the hard way after a mysterious employer hires his ship to hunt down an ancient alien artifact but insists on providing his own pilot. Ryce Faine is handsome and smart, but Matt has rarely met anyone more obnoxious. With tensions running high, it isn’t until they are attacked by the hostile Alraki that Matt grudgingly begins to respect Ryce’s superior skills, respect that transforms into a tentative attraction.

Little did he know that their biggest challenge would be reaching their destination, an abandoned alien base located on a distant moon amid a dense asteroid field. But when Matt learns that Ryce isn’t completely who he says he is and the artifact is more than he bargained for, he is faced with a difficult choice. One that might change the balance of forces in the known galaxy.

Matt doesn’t take well to moral dilemmas; he prefers the easy way out. But that might not be possible anymore, when his past comes back to haunt him at the worst possible moment. When faced with a notorious pirate carrying a personal grudge, the fragile connection Matt has formed with Ryce might be the only thing that he can count on to save them both.

Thrilling space adventures

Adrift is my first venture into sci-fi and I loved it. Adventure in the galaxy with space pirates was just as thrilling as I hoped it would be.

I'm really looking forward to reading Isabelle's other books as she is a talented author.

Richard Eckman is a "new to me" narrator and he did a good job bringing this book to life.

Sci-fi, adventure, and romance among the stars!

To say that I enjoyed this book would be an understatement of gargantuan proportions. I have to admit that I have a soft spot in my heart for warm-hearted Rogues. Matt definitely hit me right in the feels. the story itself was somewhat traditional space adventure fare, but made unique and exciting by family, past, and present entanglements. Overall, I highly recommend this audiobook.

a very low budget mass effect

this is one of those books I regret purchasing. several times I found my self checking to see how much time was left. the characters weren't all that developed, and the storyline seemed rushed... it started out alright but the longer I listened the less I cared. I encourage adler to keep writing. there is potential just needs more work.

Just bearable

Below the surface there is a story that could have been shorter and more engaging. This dragged out in the wrong places and could have been half the length.
However the narrator made things worse and at times you have no idea what character spoke as they sounded the same which ultimately made me wish I had just read the book myself. Will be skipping over any more by this author and narrator
