    Be careful what you wish for. Our heroine, Cara, learns that the hard way after years spent dreaming about escaping the big city and trading in the boring 9 to 5 grind for a life of travel and adventure. When her wish finally comes true, she realizes she may have ended up with more than she bargained for. She wanted travel and adventure, just not the kind that takes her nearly a thousand years into the future and onto a spaceship. Cut Her Out In Little Stars is a story for anyone who has ever lo Be careful what you wish for. Our heroine, Cara, learns that the hard way after years spent dreaming about escaping the big city and trading in the boring 9 to 5 grind for a life of travel and adventure. When her wish finally comes true, she realizes she may have ended up with more than she bargained for. She wanted travel and adventure, just not the kind that takes her nearly a thousand years into the future and onto a spaceship. Cut Her Out In Little Stars is a story for anyone who has ever looked up at the night sky and dreamed about how life could be, about adventure, about shaking things up and making a change. Cara finds herself as an outsider in a world she doesn't understand and she struggles to fit in. I think readers will be able to see themselves in Cara because at one time in our lives we have all felt like we don't belong. As with any change, Cara is left with no other choice but to adapt. Her quirks, imperfections and flaws are what make her journey so human and so entertaining. As she navigates through this strange, new future she doubts if her desire for a life of adventure is really what she wants. A normal, boring life starts to sound much more appealing, especially after she is nearly killed. Cara's free spirit and curiosity immediately clashes with the no-nonsense, duty-driven Commander of the fleet Nikolas Caine, who has made it his mission to return her safely back to her own time. He has a job to protect the star system from tensions that have been brewing between the Confederation and the Hostiles and, if the increase in violent clashes are any indication, is about to explode into full-blown war. Her arrival stars a chain reaction that Caine fears will be the spark that ignites the war. With her life in ever-increasing danger, the task of getting her home safely is becoming more difficult by the day. And if that wasn't enough, there are these pesky, little feelings starting to surface that Caine just can't seem to get rid of. Nothing is every easy on a spaceship...

    Fantastic book by a new and upcoming author! I was given the opportunity to read this book as a beta reader and it had me locked in from the start! I have read this book twice now and could easily sit down for a third time. Syfy, fantasy, romance, friendship, betrayal; it checked all the boxes I love for a good read. The character development is great and the descriptive writing has you closing your eyes and being right there along for the ride.

The book starts out with our protagonist, Cara DeLeon. She’s a normal woman living in New York and she’s bored with her life. She hates her job, she’s not in love with her boyfriend, and she’s desperate to leave the city. At the same time, she’s scared to make any changes for fear of never finding anything better. Then she climbs onto the subway and the train crashes, while at the same moment a mysterious energy whisks her off. When she wakes up, she’s on a spaceship 900 years in the future, being interrogated as a hostile invader by a handsome spaceship commander with telepathic abilities. I really really like this premise. I think everyone can relate to the feeling of wanting to escape their humdrum lives, which is why books, video games, and movies are all multi-billion-dollar enterprises. Time travel is a time-tested romance trope, although it’s usually into the past, where men wear kilts and swing swords around. Time travelling into the future is an even riskier business, since she’s the one who is completely at sea and constantly in danger, but this time from LASER GUNS. 900 years in the future, mankind is still at war. Commander Nikolai Caine is an Esper, an evolved human with the ability to enter other peoples’ minds and see their thoughts and memories like a spelunker exploring a dangerous cave system. When a strange woman appears on his ship in the middle of battle, he has no choice but to interrogate her and discover what she knows and what their enemy’s plan is. While invading her mind, he breaks through her defenses and they develop a kind of psychic link. Whew. Sometimes I also have to complain about romances that the leads have much too strong of a connection, much too fast. Not in this case, however. If anything, I wish their link had been MORE of a thing, because at times I wasn’t really sure what they liked about each other. My biggest complaint about the book is that I never fell in love with the love interest. For a romance novel, that’s kind of an issue. Caine is a pretty typical male romantic lead--lots of skeletons in his closet, drawn to the female lead but desperate to resist, a bit of a tsundere. I wish he had been more stable, because poor Cara really felt adrift and there was no one to really anchor her. He’s hot and cold, depending on what the plot requires, and he’s constantly giving in to whatever Cara asks for, no matter how dumb it is. How he made it to commander is beyond me. This weakness of his causes a lot of problems, which is a good thing (plot-wise) but makes romance with him a little dicey. HOWEVER that is not to say that this makes the book bad. On the contrary, I think it’s very unusual for a romance novel to give their leads actual character flaws, and I look forward to Caine growing and developing over the course of further books. Perhaps he will overcome his weakness, or perhaps that weakness will turn into a strength. Either way, I can see lots of good outcomes. When I read a book that’s focused on romance, sometimes I have to roll my eyes a little. Why aren’t these two just together already? What’s separating them? Sometimes there doesn’t seem to be a good reason apart from 'otherwise the book would be over too soon'. However, this wasn’t the case when I was reading Cut Her Out In Little Stars. The main leads were separated by so many obstacles I actually was worried they would never be able to overcome them all. Allow me to list just a few. She's from the past! He has to protect her! His bloodline is strictly controlled and he can only marry another Esper! There are bad guys plotting to hurt anyone he loves! Oh yeah, and she's FROM THE FRIGGING PAST! As for the larger world (or galaxy) of the book, there are a lot of really interesting politics and history that will be really cool to explore in later books. The book ends on a cliffhanger, which I was not expecting, and I am interested to see how these crazy kids overcome the overwhelming odds to be together.

    Whoa, I didn't expect this from the cover (and I usually don't read book blurbs). I read this in just a few days--I was hooked right in, so reading 400+ pages within a short time may also prove to skew reviewing.

I'm getting closer toward the end when it's like, oh come on! Not another thing! There were also some typographical & grammatical errors throughout that made me cringe, because this is a good read that could've been an even better read without them. With all that said, I enjoyed this book. In terms of readability, I'd give this book a 10 just for narration alone, REALLY easy and smooth read. I was just totally not expecting anything I read. What I really loved was that this is a Sci Fi Love Story without being a Sci Fi Romance; no mushy gushy, but love surrounded by and restricted to practical reality and its own plot, which also made it pretty hilarious. The end was also great and loyal to that. Poor Cara, who was like a human bobo doll. I've never seen a character take such a beating ... Quantum Entanglement: A Love Story Cool cover art & title (which is also coolly explained in the book), and great sci fi premise of a love story described by quantum Entanglement.

Following an accident, Cara, a modern day woman time-travels 900 years into the future, where she meets Star Fleet Commander, Nicholas Caine. At first, Caine believes her to be part of the rebel tribe his troops are fighting, but by means of 'mindwalking' he determines that Cara came from the past. The conundrum? He needs to get her back to the past without her revealing the future. But first he must protect her from assassination, and in doing so, he has to defy his government. Then, there is the chemistry between Cara and Caine. Their attraction is undeniable, and the developing love story is sweet and sexy without crossing into adult territory, which makes this book suitable for a younger audience. But there are secrets in Caine's past that won't allow him to follow his feelings. And then there are his complicated family ties... The pacing could be faster at times, and there are too many unnecessary, lengthy description interrupting the flow of the story. On the other hand, there are some nailbiting action/fight scenes, which make up for the slower passages. I liked the fact that some of the battles are faught internally. Nice touch, and the grand finale leaves a lot of scope for the next installment. (Which I am looking forward). The relatable characters, worldbuilding, and plot-hole free story make 'Cut her out in little stars' a great debut. I like the concept of the story, its delivery, and I am looking forward to hearing more from this author. Recommended for readers, who like space operas and action-packed scifi with romance thrown into it.

It’s much more daunting of a perspective; so much of the unknown. In this novel, Cut Her Out In Little Stars, the main character is unexpectedly and unknowingly transported into the future. One of the ideas from the story that I loved in the setting’s uncharted place in time was this ability of Espers to enter into another’s mind as a way of interrogation. The love story between Cara (time traveler) and Caine (A military commander and Esper) embedded into this time travel adventure, included his ability to enter Cara’s mind. The events of him walking through her memories and the world of her mind was so dynamic I hung on every word of it; how it affected Cara to be exposed to this action, how it affected Cain to experience a mind that was as strong as hers. The whole idea was exciting to read. Having a positive affinity with the concept of Quantum Entanglement, and without spoiling the end, I also loved that this concept and his Esper abilities were used to link the two lovers forever no matter of time and space. It looks like there is a sequel coming to see what time has in store for their love.

    I received a free ARC thanks to the publisher through Reedsy. Cara is a spitfire from modern times that ends up, through a freak accident, 900 years in the future. Cool technology and space travel. What’s not to love? Probably the interplanetary war, lack of hot showers, and the infuriating Commander, Caine. On top of all that, no one is telling her anything but half-truths and lies. Caine discovers Cara has mysteriously arrived on his ship in the middle of a, potentially catastrophic, battle.

On top of all that, no one is telling her anything but half-truths and lies. Caine discovers Cara has mysteriously arrived on his ship in the middle of a, potentially catastrophic, battle. Everything about her screams dangerous Hostile. Under the authorization of the Council he infiltrates her mind and discovers the truth, but something happens that might change his world forever. Cara and Caine are tossed together in the Romeo and Juliet space opera with millions of lives on the line. This book has the perfect amount of high-stakes and emotional build-up that had me invested right away. I loved the combat. I love the slow moments where Cara is figuring out this new world. Every aspect of character-development is wonderful and makes you more invested in what is going to happen next. The banter is that is there is great (although I am always a fan of more) and the heart-felt moments are the absolute best. I was in tears and laughing throughout the story. My only complaint is that there isn’t more (and at over 400 pages that’s saying a lot). I cannot wait to see what happens next and what this author continues to bring. This is by far in my 10 ten of the year, and likely even higher. And that’s going up against some beasts (Circe, Daughter of Smoke and Bone, To Sleep in a Sea of Stars, American Royals, The Fountains of Silence, and so many others). I cannot recommend this enough! You need to find out what happens to Cara and Caine and then tell me your thoughts!

    I was given an arc copy in exchange for my honest review. What I loved: Excellent world building Well thought out and fleshed out characters. Fun twists with Espers and mind walking. A fresh and exciting story line with space and time travel and just enough romance. What I struggled with: Slow paced, took a while before it felt like things were happening. Abrupt ending. I wanted a little more tied up before the sequel. Would recommend to those who love sci-fi, adventure, and time travel. Look forward to I was given an arc copy in exchange for my honest review.

A fresh and exciting story line with space and time travel and just enough romance. What I struggled with: Slow paced, took a while before it felt like things were happening. Abrupt ending. I wanted a little more tied up before the sequel. Would recommend to those who love sci-fi, adventure, and time travel. Look forward to the conclusion hopefully in the next book.

    As a super busy hospital worker, mother, wife and horse owner i have little to no spare time. I started this book and carried it with me everywhere for a week! I read chapters where I could squeeze them in because I loved the characters and the story. I think about the book when I'm not reading it and that is how I rate the quality of a book! I hope the author has started on the sequel, I will be looking forward to it! As a super busy hospital worker, mother, wife and horse owner i have little to no spare time.

    This is the 1st book I've read written by Daniele Kasper; she has done a great job at writing a good book; I can’t wait to read more of her books. The story line caught my attention at the very beginning and kept me interested throughout the entire book. I received a free copy of this book via booksprout and I’m voluntarily leaving a review.

    A wonderfully fun book. There is a lot of room for world building and character building in the future. I'm excited for the next book and look forward to the adventure. The author did a great job of helping you understand what the character feels and as crazy as the situation is, one can imagine being in the situation. It's a fun and fantastic love story.

    This book was an absolute whirlwind from start to finish and I loved every moment of it. Where do I start? Daniele’s writing is like a magnet, pulling you through the story with a kind of force you only ever feel when you’re stuck into a really epic book. I was finding myself clock watching at work so that I could start reading again as soon as I finished for the day. Cara and Caine’s relationship throughout the book is like a carefully choreographed dance - as main characters, they are both so str This book was an absolute whirlwind from start to finish and I loved every moment of it.

I was finding myself clock watching at work so that I could start reading again as soon as I finished for the day. Cara and Caine’s relationship throughout the book is like a carefully choreographed dance - as main characters, they are both so strong willed, stubborn and unapologetically themselves that you can really relate to them, to their imperfections and humanity. This story was beautiful, heartbreaking, funny, thorough and left me wanting more. Daniele’s writing is intricate, eloquent and you can tell that this story was stitched together with love and care throughout. Every moment felt free and realistic, even in the wildly intergalactic setting. This book absolutely deserves more than 5 stars. An absolute must read for anyone who is a fan of good writing, different storylines and unpredictable romance.

    Chick-lit sci-fi quantum entanglement Where do I start?! This book sets out like your standard chick lit novel. Two girls in New York, hitting the food trucks to save money on lunch, Cara wondering about the future of her relationship with BF David, best friend Olivia by her side. Next thing you know, whoosh, some space-time glitch blams Cara into the Archon, a Confederate spaceship, a thousand years in the future.

Two girls in New York, hitting the food trucks to save money on lunch, Cara wondering about the future of her relationship with BF David, best friend Olivia by her side. Next thing you know, whoosh, some space-time glitch blams Cara into the Archon, a Confederate spaceship, a thousand years in the future. If you think that relationships on Earth in the twenty-first century are tough, try getting a crush on an Esper. There’s a lot of space-based adventure, all of which has an underlay of romantic tension. The author has put a lot into the world-building, and it makes for a believable and engaging storyworld. The characters are well-fleshed out and I genuinely cared about them. I stopped caring about whether Cara was going to make it back to New York, because I was more interested in whether she was going to find love and a future in space with Caine. An enjoyable read.

    Thank you so much to the author for providing me with a copy to review as part of a book tour. This in no way affects my review. Cut Her Out in Little Stars has surprised me by how much I enjoyed it because I am usually a logic-based and technical science fiction reader. While this book has some science behind it, it is very much a science fiction romance, not something I have considered before, but I thoroughly enjoyed. My favourite part of Cut Her Out in Little Stars has to be the characters. Thank you so much to the author for providing me with a copy to review as part of a book tour.

While this book has some science behind it, it is very much a science fiction romance, not something I have considered before, but I thoroughly enjoyed. My favourite part of Cut Her Out in Little Stars has to be the characters. I loved Cara, and her never taking no for an answer. She knew her mind and was determined to stick to it, even if it did land her in heaps of trouble. Caine was a bit on an enigma until very late in, and I still think there is more to be discovered. But I like what I have read so far and can't wait to find out more of his secrets. I enjoyed what I got to read about the background characters such as Than and Zoya, but I would love to know more about them and their motivations. One thing that I did also like was the romance between Cara and Caine. I liked the progression that it took, and it didn't feel like Insta-love to me. Cara and Caine balanced each other out nicely, and it meant that the plot flowed through their relationship. However, I did find myself getting frustrated with the characters as all their problems could have been solved by talking to each other. But I know there wouldn't have been a plot if they did. The world building within Cut Her Out in Little Stars was well developed, and I felt like I understood where the characters were, but I would have loved a map of the ship as it would have made it just that little bit easier to get my bearings. When Cara did leave the ship, I loved the descriptions of the different planets and areas; they really enhanced the narrative. Daniele Kasper easily explained the science behind the plot and at no point did the book feel over complicated, which I particularly appreciated. My only small issue with Cut Her Out in Little Stars is the pacing. It is very fast paced, and the book is packed with lots of action. So I did find myself getting overwhelmed by the action, and would have liked a bit more downtime. So I think it could have benefited from about 50 more pages, which could have made it a little bit easier to digest. I can't wait to see what the sequel to Cut Her Out in Little Stars brings, especially after the ending that we were given.

    Cut Her Out in Little Stars is a fun, absorbing story about a woman sucked through time and into space. There are twists and turns all the way through, and it was easy to sit back and enjoy the journey. The story starts off with a well-written introduction to Cara and her life. There is a deep sense of restlessness in her, and by the time the incident occurs, I was hoping something would change for her. I guess reading the blurb beforehand helped me stay hooked and get excited about the impending Cut Her Out in Little Stars is a fun, absorbing story about a woman sucked through time and into space.

There is a deep sense of restlessness in her, and by the time the incident occurs, I was hoping something would change for her. I guess reading the blurb beforehand helped me stay hooked and get excited about the impending incident, and I wasn’t disappointed. The introduction to Caine was tense and fun in all the right ways. It made me think of those great scenes in Star Trek movies or episodes where the Captain was on deck. With a good balance between description and pacing, Kasper keeps the meet-cute realistic and in theme. The world, or rather, universe, that the story is set in is a great part of the novel. The snippets we got of different planets helped to build the culture that has evolved for the future the story is set in. On top of the fascinating plot Cara becomes embroiled in, we read as she has to adapt to life in the future, in space, with a bunch of people she doesn’t know. The crew of the Arcon are dedicated, sensible, but also kind when it came down to it. The respect and relationships between the crew mates made it feel like a ship of family members rather than colleagues, and it a pleasure to read the dialogue in this novel. Cut Her Out in Little Stars was an engaging read. I am very much looking forward to the sequel, because there were parts of the novel that left me with a lot more questions than answers. I have a feeling that is because Kasper is setting up a longer play, and I am keen to learn how different parts of the narrative link together. This is a must read for lovers of romance, stories set in space, and a dash of time travel.

    Daniele Kasper has an amazing writing style. Her writing made me engaged throughout the whole book. Leading to why I finished this book in one day. Cara was an amazing main character and I could relate to her in multiple ways. Caine also was a great character. They both had their flaws but connected to each other in a different way that I had not seen done before. I really liked their development as individuals and a duo throughout the story. The relationship seemed natural and not too pushed. T Daniele Kasper has an amazing writing style. Her writing made me engaged throughout the whole book.

I was confused at times about where the rooms on the ship were and who was who but over time it became less of a problem. I will say that I was surprised with how this book finished. Going into this book I did not realize that it was a series. I had to take a star away because it took me a bit to get into the story and I felt the end was rushed. I think that it would have benefited from having at least 50 more pages since it was such a slow start and the end had so much to it.

    Parting is such sweet sorrow I have been reading Indie exclusively for a year now and Science Fiction is a genre that I was missing. I am so glad I stumbled across Cut Her Out in Little Stars. This is an out-of-this-world fantasy read rich in character development and full of action packed adventure. This story whisks you through space and time on the U.C.S. Archon after Cara is pulled 900+ years into the future and falls into the arms of Commander Nikolas Caine.

    IOk so this will be a short one because it was not my thing. If you follow me at all, you would know Im usually a reviewer of fantasy and scifi. When the author approached me and asked me to read this, I read the synopsis and thought 'sweet. Its a sci fi novel with some romance' ala last years Docile. Reader, it is not... So the first 30% is all about the coming together and each MC starting to care about the other (pretty standard stuff).

So the first 30% is all about the coming together and each MC starting to care about the other (pretty standard stuff). Its all awkward meetings and misunderstandings but it also doesn't really flesh out the characters so I couldn't empathise with anyone. It feels kind of like its trying to be Outlander but in space. Unfortunately it really missed that mark for me. It continues on in this same way for the majority of the novel. The 2 MCs start to realise their feelings for each other and things happen that bring them closer. There's space hijinks and some twists and turns along the way but basically its your typical squishy romance novel. Here's the rundown. There's *swooning time travel maiden* and *tough yet soft male lead* alongside *stereotypical side character who just wants the best for everyone*. The best way to describe it is if Mills and Boon did space adventures. If thats your thing then this will definitely be up your alley (this is not me saying M&B is a bad thing either. That industry is worth a fricking mint and has kept Fabio paid well into retirement). Overall its basically soft core housewife porn. If you love swooning and romance then this will be great for you. I personally couldn't get invested in the characters but I'm sure there are PLENTY of people who will love it.
