Owner of the Chimay grade starship dubbed The Pittsburgh, Captain Jane Sevis is one of the best bounty hunters in the galaxy. Except for the occasional problematic hunt, her life is pretty uncomplicated. When a particularly slippery target reveals the real reason for being in her database, her world is turned upside down in more ways than one. Will she follow her gut and look the other way for the man she may be falling for? Or will their love fall prey to her mercenary heart before it gets a real chance to ignite?
D.T. Dyllin is a bestselling author who writes paranormal, sci-fi, and contemporary romance. Basically, anything with a love story is her kryptonite. Her obsession with affairs-of-the-heart is what first drove her to begin twisting her own tales of scorching romance. D.T. was born and raised in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. (Black & Gold for life, baby!) She now lives in Raleigh, North Carolina with her husband, and two spoiled German Shepherds.

Starblind (Starblind, #1)Starblind by D.T. Dyllin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is the first D.T. Dyllin book I've ever read/listened-to. I kind of had an idea what to expect from the story and the characters. But when it comes to narration, I don't allow myself to make up my mind until after I've listened to a few chapters.
Ashley Holt is a new narrator to me. When she opened/introduced the book, I got a little worried I wouldn't enjoy the book as much. If anyone else had narrated this book, it would have been a different experience. Holt does give Jane (MC) spunk. But it was a bit monotone for me. I feel a little like it was forced. It didn't feel natural. I know not all narrations will have that natural-like feel to them, but even so.
The story itself was fun, easy to follow. I wasn't cringing too badly . . . Okay, I wasn't cringing at all. I was biting my nails all the way through because I wanted to know what happens next. I did not let the narration stop me from liking the story. All together, I give it 4 stars.
