Good Kindle T-Minus Two Mila Todorov, a twenty-seven year old engineer has high hopes of being selected to be on the ship which will begin colonizing the planet Mars. At thirteen she idolized a young astronaut, Jancey Beaumont watching on TV as she circled the earth for over a year on a solo mission aboard her spacecraft. Mila vowed to one day be an astronaut just like her hero. Now forty-three, Jancey is hoping she will be chosen for the Tenacity Project. These two women along with one hundred and fifty other astronauts, scientists and engineers are vying for the two coveted positions as the first settlers on the red planet. All prospective candidates have arrived in Hawaii to begin the testing which will help the selection committee choose who has the right stuff for this mission.I really enjoyed reading T Minus Two.I love when an author does her research. I have no idea how much interplanetary travel jargon was real or imagined but it all sounded believable enough to this reader. Things like propulsion systems, sustainable sources for food,water and the shelters needed to populate a planet added to the story and never felt like an info dump.I loved how the determined and often over confident Mila gets flustered in the presence of her idol, Jancey. I also enjoyed watching her attempts to break down the barriers Beaumont had erected over years of failed relationships. The pace of the book was excellent and the little bit of intrigue during the competition added enough tension to keep the reader guessing while we watched the romance between Mila and Jancey develop.My inner geek enjoyed the science while my heart was busy rooting for the two women to achieve their goals. A pleasure to read.

  • KG Macgregor is on a roll The last four releases of hers I ve read have all been very entertaining and surprisingly memorable There is a reason I don t like to read vanilla romances It s that they tend to be quite forgettable and the characters and plots run into one another after a while This author has managed to avoid that trap by surrounding her romances with a wider issue or plot that is reasonably well researched, relatively interesting and seamlessly integrated with the romance Its a trie [...]


  • Wow, what a lovely way to spend a Sunday afternoon I wonder what it must be like to have such passion about something, particularly your job, to want to pack up and leave everything behind family, friends and life as you know it to go and colonize another planet That s what our leading ladies are vying for the chance to be the first humans to call Mars home.I really enjoyed Mila and Jancey s story and I didn t realize how quickly I was flying through the pages until I d reached the end Any book [...]


  • Thoroughly enjoyed this I love the concept of what it would take to colonise another planet and overcome the complications of environment, personalities, politics and technology I don t understand all the technology necessary but this was plausibly sciencey enough for me anyway Novels like Red Mars and The Moon is a Harsh Mistress might have an edge on the socio political aspect as well as the science but they never have the lesbian romance I m partial to the f f romance and to have it interwove [...]


  • This book was a wealth of information KG MacGregor blew my mind with the details The book was like nothing I had ever read before in lesbian romance genre It was wonderful and refreshing.The book starts introducing us to Mila Tordov Mila is a 27 year old, super smart engineer scientist that has her heart set on going to Mars This is her life dream since she was a young girl She is persistent and unflappable If you look up the term dogged determination you would find a write up about Mila Tordov [...]


  • Ok enough of that, 70% is the best I could do I couldn t enjoy this book because I just couldn t stand Jancey, i felt not one bit of warmth towards her selfish git Now Mila she was a nice enough character but she acted like Jancey was the dogs bollocks, worshiping the ground she walked on, just aggravatingSo my conclusion of the book is this, it would have been a cracking read if the characters didn t consist of a selfish twat with only one focus and an obsessed arse kisser, all the other stuff [...]


  • It reminded me of my teenage years and the reason behind the choice of my career perhaps because the writer did a pretty good job in research including the locations of the space stations and the character personalities.I can t really comment about the romance but in terms of subject research, flow, and having smart conversations that goes well with supporting main characters that geeks usually do yet high level for general audience , the writer did a pretty good job It is as realistic as it can [...]


  • Definitely not science fiction I was Leary to read this because it sounded like science fiction I m glad I saw a posting from the author pointing out that it wasn t It s a story of a group of people competing to be the first to go to Mars It is set a little in the future, but no time travel or aliens The interaction of the characters and the challenges they have to overcome to become a team worthy of going to Mars are well written I was sucked in and could stop reading


  • Pretty solid story I liked the science aspects, I liked the characters, including some of the secondary ones, and through it was telegraphed way in advance that they were sabotaged, I enjoyed the twist What I didn t enjoy so much was the romance the inevitability aspects, the worship by Mila, the scene at the airport I wish it had developed as a traditional romance where they are both strangers who encounter each other and slowly build up to falling in love Mila s worship approach to relationsh [...]


  • I love this author, and at first glance had decided to pass on reading this book but Bella s Christmas book sale changed my mind I am not a fan of most sci fi type novels, and when reading the synopsis it sounded like that kind of book Fortunately for me it was not, and it was a book I really enjoyed I did not put it down once I started ice storm helped and read it quickly For 6.99 it was a bargain and I recommend picking it up if you get the chance.


  • Great book I love it, especially since the Mars journey is actually making progress in real life go go Nasa, go go SpaceX, make it happen , and to see a lesfic version of this as it is written here is even enjoyable Easy, fluffy and fun read with minimal angst, love it and wish there was


  • Detailed score 2.5 rounded up to 3I am very conscious, in writing this review, that I m one of the first to post a review on this novel So, it is with a heavy heart that I have to say that I was really disappointed by this book.The first third of the novel rips along, introducing the Tenacity Project wealthy private backers want to send two people to begin a colony on Mars The premise of the book as a competition test to discover the candidates best for the job and the main protagonists Mila Tor [...]


  • I actually enjoyed the book a lot even though I have no interest or a lot of knowledge at all with space travel The book did a good job in explaining and helping me picture it I always find KG Macgregor s style of writing easy to read, easy to picture and very quickly grasp my attention with the first two chapters I enjoyed reading the relationship partnership between Mila Todorov and Major Jancey Beaumont, however, since most of the book is dedicated to explaining the Tenacity Project and the t [...]


  • As much as I wanted to enjoy a book about two female astronauts preparing for a mission to Mars, this was not to be I couldn t really engage with the characters, and Mila s subversiveness bothered me a great deal view spoiler As in,Mila I m good at my job, I designed a cool new way to reuse the propulsion systemMila but in this partnership, you can be the commanderMila your wants are my wantsJancey I love being the commanderJancey but I m going to pretend that I prefer an equal partnerJancey my [...]

  • 4.5 starsF F romanceThe scientific research and realism laid out in this story is pretty amazing I felt like I was getting first hand information from a scientist on the subject here, lol Wow, MacGregor WOW I m so utterly impressed with this effort I m no scientist and couldn t address any scientific flaws here but who cares I was engaged with this story and loved all the nerdy facts, details, and scenarios from page one The leads are also well drawn and had excellent chemistry The sex was incre [...]


  • Neat science fiction story about a private company sending a colony to Mars In waves First with unmmaned rockets filled with things like rovers, then in two person one way missions.The book is mostly concerned with the selection process And the competition to be one of the few chosen to go to Mars Several characters pop up, but the two most important are the two who alternate telling the story A 27 year old woman from Bulgaria named Mila Todorov, and a 40 something woman from the US named Jancey [...]


  • What a wonderful gem of a book this was While, this is only my fourth book read by MacGregor, all have been wonderful To me, MacGregor s writing does for Bella, what Radclyffe does for Bold Strokes Books Both authors deserve their place in lesfic fans hearts I honestly enjoyed every minute of this book While it s not overly exciting, it s never boring You are so drawn in, rooting for the two mains, hoping they will be Mars bound And the romance was great While very slow to start, it progressed a [...]


  • Loved it Having experienced at the age on 20 when Neil Armstrong did the famous walk on the moon, this was an exciting story I still remember when Sally Ride became the first American woman in space The fact that her being a lesbian kept integral parts if her life secret.I m glad McGregor wrote this story Her character development was so precise that I felt like I was there with the characters Well done
