Caught in Amber by Cathy Pegau

Recently out of rehab, Sasha James is determined to keep her head down, complete her parole and never touch amber again. The chip in her neck controls her cravings for the highly addictive drug, but also tracks her every move. Not that she goes anywhere other than work and the halfway house she calls home — a far cry from her luxurious former life as lover of the mining colony's top drug dealer, Guy Christiansen.

Agent Nathan Sterling has no desire to see Sasha fall back into amber, but his sister has become Guy's latest conquest and the unexpectedly attractive Sasha is the key to getting her back. So in exchange for an introduction, he offers Sasha the one thing she can't refuse — her freedom. From the chip, her parole and even the planet if she wants. Though he would be sorry to see her go...

Torn between her growing attraction to Nathan, fear of Guy and the allure of amber, Sasha accepts. But who will save her if Guy refuses to let her go a second time?

Release Date January 28th 2013

Sasha just wants to go about her life, as mundane as it is, but when Nathan approaches her and asks for her help to save his little sister from Sasha's drug-dealer ex-boyfriend - she can't turn him down. To get back into Guy's good books, she has to play nice with him - which could hurt her and her probation status - all while resisting the call of Amber. Nathan and Sasha's growing feelings for each other could jeopardise the whole thing, if Guy suspects anything between the two of them - he could kill them both.

I always like books that make an entire new world, to someone like me (with little or no imagination) that seems like a herculean task so I admire that in an author. I liked Sasha - she was broken but determined to be strong and survive and that trait in her made me hate Nathan for forcing her into the situation above.

But, of course, Nathan manages to change my mind as we find out he actually has feelings for Sasha and isn't just in it for his sister's sake - he wants to help Sasha get on with her life.

Also, I hate Guy and Marco ... that's all I'm going to say on that.

Buy this book, it's a fun, quick read.
