Review: The Champion of Baresh by Susan Grant

Book 1: Star World Frontier Series

She was playing with fire…
Jemm Aves battles to keep her dreams alive on a dead-end world. Working for the mines by day, she’s a successful bajha player at night, disguised as a male to be allowed to compete in the colony’s dangerous underworld where club owners will go to extremes to retain the best players. Every win puts her one small step closer to her goal: saving enough to escape Barésh with her family. When a nobleman from one of the galaxy’s elite families recruits her to be a star player for his team, it’s because he doesn’t know her secret. Her ruse proves to be her most perilous game yet when it puts both their lives—and her heart—at risk.
Prince Charming he was not…
Prince Klark is eager to reverse his reputation as the black sheep of the Vedla clan, a family as famous for its wealth and power as it is for being a bastion of male-dominated tradition. If his bajha team can win the galactic title, it would go a long way toward restoring the family honor that his misdeeds tarnished. He travels to Barésh to track down an amateur who’s risen to the top of the seedy world of street bajha, offering the commoner a chance of a lifetime: a way off that reeking space rock for good. But his new player comes with a scandalous secret that turns his plans and his beliefs upside down. He sets out to win a very different prize—his champion’s reluctant heart.

This book is in my favorite genre scifi romance and when I got it I wasn't aware that it was set in the same world as her Star series. I love that series and still them on my keeper shelf. Signed no less. I love Jemm and her whole family. They are a family that fights, loves, and plays together. They are a great family. Klark was so anal at the beginning but I love how he turned out and man the Bajha players on their team are so funny and great. I would like to see more stories and maybe them or Klark sister would be a great story. 
I give this book 4 stars and I was given this via Netgalley in exchange for a fair and honest review.
