    Two wounded hearts find each other amidst a world-changing battle. When I finished Parallel Seduction, I knew I have to find the next book fast and soon. So I was lucky that when I made my weekly trip to my local library I found Parallel Desire sitting on its shelf, as if simply waiting for me. I resisted doing a happy dance, as I greedily snatched it and put it in overflowing basket of books. Parallel Desire picked up immediately right where Parallel Seduction ends. Now time-traveler Scott Dillon Two wounded hearts find each other amidst a world-changing battle. When I finished Parallel Seduction, I knew I have to find the next book fast and soon. So I was lucky that when I made my weekly trip to my local library I found Parallel Desire sitting on its shelf, as if simply waiting for me. I resisted doing a happy dance, as I greedily snatched it and put it in overflowing basket of books. Parallel Desire picked up immediately right where Parallel Seduction ends. Now time-traveler Scott Dillon, in his wife’s murderer’s body, is stranded in the past, trying to find a purpose for his own existence. With Hope, now happily mated to his younger self, he had decided that eliminating his wife’s future killer would be the best way to secure her safety in this current timeline. Together, with medic Shelby Tyler, Scott embarks on a journey that will lead them into the hands of their enemies. As the battle between Refarians and Antousians continue to rage, Scott will be forced to embrace his own hybrid nature, heal his own hurts, and discover a new capacity to love. I cannot say enough good things about this series, and after reading this book, it is definitely in my top ten list. I enjoy reading about this other Scott Dillon, the one that has experienced pain and loss, and his relationship with Shelby, who has experienced the same traumatic events in her own life. I also like the continuation of Jared and Kelsey’s story, and even Thea and Marco’s. It’s like reading a new story while hanging out with old friends. To those who haven’t read this series, I highly recommend that you give this one a try. Definitely worth the read.

    Unparalleled, Please don't let this be the end! With her steamiest book yet, author Diedre Knight brings back all the major pairs from her previous `Parallel' books. Knight wraps all the loose relationship threads here with a nice little bow, but leaves the series with the battle kicked up a notch and no resolution. And if this is truly the final book, I found that a bit dissatisfying hence the 1/2 star drop in the rating.

With her steamiest book yet, author Diedre Knight brings back all the major pairs from her previous `Parallel' books. Knight wraps all the loose relationship threads here with a nice little bow, but leaves the series with the battle kicked up a notch and no resolution. And if this is truly the final book, I found that a bit dissatisfying hence the 1/2 star drop in the rating. Parallel Desire is science fiction romance with a paranormal feel set against a secret battle between two alien races, one out to enslave the earth and steal our bodies and another to protect us. The good guys have the power of time travel but there are no worries about paradox here, because time travel is to a parallel universe. In the last book, Parallel Seduction (Midnight Warriors, Book 3), we met both of the leads, Jake and Shelby. Jake Tierney is a traveler from a parallel future, who travels back to kill the man who murdered his beloved wife/soulmate and unborn child, a loss which destroyed the man Jake used to be. If you've read the previous book you will know Jake's original identity, if not it sounds a bit confusing but he uses the hated power of his alien race to become Jake Tierney by taking the murderer's identity after stealing the murderer's body and out of self-loathing he discards his original name and assumes the murderer's. Jake is truly tortured and immersed in grief, and loosing this universe's version of his wife in the last book - this time not to death but to his younger self - has only deepened his pain. Now he lives on the verge of stalker-hood, calling her again and again just to hear her voice, envious of the happiness he once had. Happiness his younger self now enjoys. There is really nothing left to Jake but his crusade to find the Jake Tierney here in the past and kill him to save his 'wife' in this parallel time line. The heroine Shelby, with her own heart scarred by loss, has her own triangle thing going on. She took care of Jake's original identity younger self and half way fell in love with him, but now finds herself deeply attracted to his anguished Jake incarnation. Jake and Shelby are both deeply sensual people and when Jake finds himself caught in a powerful attraction to Shelby, he sheds his celibacy with a vengeance. I expected their relationship to stay purely physical for longer in the book, but these two have shared pain and a soulmate connection -- Shelby quickly seeps into the cracks of Jake's broken heart and begins putting life back into his lifeless existence. I really liked the relationship between the two leads, but there were a few things that didn't flow in the way the characters and their relationships were set up. A few more words from the author, Knight, could have smoothed out these rough spots. In addition to the body stealing ability, Jake's people are also shape shifters and their natural form sounds to be somewhat monstrous. Shelby had a very traumatic past experience with members of his race in shifted form and yet Knight has the two getting intimate while Jake is trapped in a shift. Shelby was alien too, so I didn't have a problem with them being intimate in that form, but my problem was that the chapter starts out in the middle of the scene with them already in bed and with how freaked out Shelby was with the other shifted aliens, and by her awful memories, I just couldn't see how Jake and Shelby would have ever gotten to that point of attempting intimacy in that situation. My other issue with the book, is the that the overarching plot that carried through the books doesn't get resolved here. If this is truly the final book in the series, Knight could have used Shelby's very cool time-walking ability and her relationship with one of the major bad guys to have somehow turned the tide and left us knowing that the good guys would succeed and save the Earth. But I suppose, that by leaving the world in peril Knight has left the series open should she ever want to jump to the future a bit and pick up the story. Even with my minor issues, I really did enjoy this book and the series. If you haven't been fortunate enough to discover the little connected short, Parallel Fire (Anna and Nevin's story), available here on Amazon, I recommend that you do -- it's a great opportunity for one last steamy foray into this wonderful parallel world. The other books in this series not mentioned above are: Parallel Attraction (Midnight Warriors, Book 1)(Jared &Kelsey) Parallel Heat (Midnight Warriors, Book 2)(Marco & Thea)

    Very good completion to the series, although it was my least favorite stand alone book and the ending kind of bothered me a little bit.

    Excellent series I loved reading about Jake and Shelby, just as I have Scott and Hope, Marco and Thea, and of course Jared and Kelsey. Theirs stories are part of the bigger story of the Refarians, and there seems like that story is left unfinished.

A long break between reading the previous book in the series and this one didn't help my enjoyment any, but that wasn't the only reason this book fell short of the others in the series. The plot didn't make a lot of sense, and the relationships became the main storyline instead of a good balance between the story and the relationships. Much of the dialogue felt stilted and unnatural as well. Since it's been several years now and no other book ahs been forthcoming in this series, i guess we won't find out exactly what happens in the War between the Antousians and the Rafarians for control of Earth. I'm guessing since we're still here it must have turned out okay. ;-)

    When I first started this book I was kinda uninterested. The main characters are Jake and Shelby which I wasn't thinking it would be. It just seemed weird since Jake is Scott... anyway read it, it was great! There's a lot that happens, it's action-packed. I didn't like this one as much as the other 3 books in the series I will admit. Something about it just didn't catch my attention as much as the others.
