*Book one in a series consisting of three... so far*

After her father’s death, the last thing Ava Windsor wants is to leave Earth and move to an Elite colony on the moon for the next ten months. Nicolas, a half-uncle she doesn’t even remember meeting, is to be her custodian until she reaches the age of twenty-one. Until then, she is not allowed to touch the money her dad has left her. Being the only child of a disowned Elite father and a common mother just got a lot more complicated.

But surviving among the Luna Six Elitists who treat commoners as servants should have been the least of Ava’s worries. Nicolas Carter is nothing like she expected. He condemns the Elite lifestyle, he is a lot younger than her father, and he is definitely way sexier.

Ten months on the moon seem like an eternity if you know you shouldn’t be falling for your guardian… but just can’t help yourself.

A sweet, steamy romance novella for lovers of New Adult with a hint of Futuristic.

Fly You to the Moon is a little different to any book I’ve read in or out of this genre – maybe because of the niece/half-uncle thing but I feel like it was more to do with the intriguing setting.

Before reading, I was wondering if there was going to be reference to Frank Sinatra in the book since the song was the first thing that came to mind when I heard the book title. I was glad there was and thought this was written in flawlessly – a sweet connotation.

I enjoyed the chemistry between Ava and Nic. Although things seemed to progress really quickly, a little too quickly, it was still easy to get caught up in their whirlwind romance. The erotic parts were hot and steamy and done well ;) For a novella, I thought the author succeeded in writing some other interesting characters too and I especially liked Margaret and Alen.

I thought Fly You to the Moon could have been improved if Jocelyn Han had expanded on the futuristic aspects. If you take away the futuristic element in this book, the story would be almost the same whereas with a bit more world-building, this book could be set apart from a lot of other erotic romances. As much as I was interested in Ava and Nic, I would have liked to learn more about the setting and the Elites, things which went over my head because they weren’t built upon.

The plot was always captivating though and I think Jocelyn Han has written a really enjoyable novella with Fly You to the Moon – one which has left me looking forward to reading more of this series.
