Marisa can't help the attraction that she feels for Bradi, even if he is her fiancé's best friend. But when disaster strikes their ship they are thrust together and like it or not, the connection between them deepens. Bradi hasn't been home since his banishment, and when they crash land on his home planet, he is worried about the reception that his remaining family members will give him. But so long as Marisa is really his, he can deal with that...

I loved returning to the Project Exorcism world, especially as this book filled in the blanks that I had between books 1 & 3 (which I've read). Each book can be read as a stand alone, but the more that you read the more filled in Roth's world becomes. Each book is rich in the land and culture of it's characters, but adding them together just gives it that something extra!

The chemistry between Marisa and Bradi was there, even when they were doing nothing to act on it, and it was good to see two characters being honest with themselves about the attraction they feel for each other, even if they weren't admitting it to the other person.

Something else that was refreshing to see was that at some points it was Marisa who was more the agresser in the relationship and it was Bradi refusing to take things further. I like it when couples in books revert traditional stereotypes, it makes it have that something different!

As with the rest of the series, I really enjoyed Force of Attraction, it was an enjoyable read!
