I had to rewind the first 30 min of the book three times because I just couldn't get into it. Halfway through, it became DNF. Super disappointing, since I was looking forward to this audiobook and planned on pre-ordering the next.
The world building was great and easy to imagine. The storyline was also good, but just not for me. It was cold due to lack of emotion. Thus far I enjoyed getting to know K. F. Breene's female characters and cheer them on as they overcome challenges. But this time around, I found the heroine, Millicent Foster's character cold, at times to be both caustic and abrasive and just too jaded. And it had nothing to do with the pills she took to suppress emotions. I had a difficult time empathising with her.
As for the hero, Ryker Gunner, he was a typical Alpha male, best suited for paranormal / fantasy romance. The connection between the two, were, for lack of a better word, lacking.
Overall, I think K. F. Breene does an exceptional job with paranormal and fantasy, and still love her. But, sadly, unlike her other work, I will not recommend Fate of Perfection.

This was an unpleasant surprise. It was a free Kindle First book, $1.99 for audio. The synopsis looked interesting and solidly sci-fi. Still, I wouldn't have even paid the $1.99 except that Angela Dawe was the narrator. She's about the only good part of this book. Her performance is always pitch-perfect, her range of voices is amazing, and her men's voices are completely convincing.
But if you're looking for sci-fi, what you'll find is a book written at the self-published level of Alpha- male romance cloaked in a sci-fi wrapper. And that wrapper is full of holes.
I would love to see the return rate of this book. I suspect it will be very high because of the miscategorization.
