M.A. George does a beautiful job of weaving a story of love at first sight, and the magnetic attraction two people can have towards each other, while still keeping the tempo of what really feels like a sci-fi story.

Proximity is written from the perspective of Palta, a teaching doctor of microbiology, who all her life has avoided relationships with men, as she wanted to wait until she found the right partner. She had her reason for not wanting to commit to someone and get married, unlike her sister who did marry.

All that changed when Eric Moran arrived at her school and started working in the same department. She couldn’t help but notice him, as he was handsome and strong and had an air of confidence around him, but Eric never seemed to notice her.

Did I mention that Palta is not human?

Without giving up too much of the story, this is a tale of two lovers, two families that become intertwined in an epic intergalactic struggle that puts the future of two worlds in their hands.

Although the romance and action seems rushed, it works because you feel the very strong magnetic pull between these two lovers, and you generally feel what Palta is feeling, and she takes you on the ride through her emotions and battles both in love and in life.

Through many surprising twists the author kept me in suspense, and even though it meant a lack of sleep, I could not put the book down until I finished it.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book, and I look forward to reading the next book in this series.
