Summary: (Goodreads

As the heiress to Titon Technologies, eighteen-year-old Aurora Titon can have whatever she wants—clothes, expensive gadgets, anything money can buy. All she really wants is to escape her pampered, paparazzi-prone life for the stars. Becoming the first female pilot to train as an astronaut for the Apollo Academy is exactly the chance for which she has been waiting. Everything would be perfect if it weren't for her unreciprocated crush on a fellow student, the sexy astronaut bent on making her life hell, and the fact that someone keeps trying to kill her. 

The first in a four book new adult science fiction series, The Apollo Academy, is an action packed story of love, discovery, and survival


Review: 

This book was amazing!! It was funny, intense, intriguing and also very well written. The Apollo Academy got me hooked to my room for a few days.  Kimberly Chase did an incredible job with the plot and the writing. Plus I love the cover! We meet Aurora Titan who is the heiress to a mega corporation of Titan Technologies and the main target to the paparazzi. Like any celebrity she wants to be normal and prove her name into the academy rather than her status. Aurora is also the first female pilot to train as an astronaut in the Academy. 

The characters were very well developed and I did want to know more about them *the next book* Zane well he is one hot tech geek and is an unknown. The Unknown is someone with no record and they dont exist which Aurora would like to be. Zane is very hard working and trains intensely at Apollo Academy to gain acceptance. It is when they graduate that he will exist again. Supporting characters like Sky who is Aurora's instructor who is sexy and HOT, and the mean girl Hailen.

The book opens in a night club where Aurora and Kaylana are enjoying their last night of freedom before Apollo Academy. Aurora lets looks and falls into the arms of a sexy man. As she is ready to kiss him, he disappears. The next morning she sees him at orientation which would be awkward. These two have a great chemistry  between Aurora and Zane but as he tries to stay away because he is an unknown and she is the heiress, Aurora convinces Zane. Aurora is also thrown in situations which are threatening, while Zane wants to know the truth. 

There are lots of twists in the story and every character as a role that you would not expect. Zane is another personal mystery which I cannot wait to see what will happen to his character. The major details around this story will leave you wanting more. This is a great series to start for a college age school. It has romance, hot guys (either Zane or Sky) and a new way to look at technology. Be sure to check out this series its out of this world!! 


4/5
