    1. ARC received for reviewThis was so good that I lost sleep just to finish it. No insta-love just a great romance that developed into love with lots of action, intrigue and suspense along the way with some hot sex thrown in. Leigh aka Alpha was seriously sexy and didn't give anyone any slack in the program. Mia was smart and not afraid to show it and help Leigh. Together they had great chemistry. I didn't know who the bad guy was at all. No, I didn't read the first book but it didn't matter cause [...]


    2. This author seems to write sci fi with romance woven through it and I really enjoyed the previous book Escape Velocity as it had a huge emotional pull. This story also set aboard the battleship Valiant Knox had me really starting to understand the conflict going on as the two very different ideologies battle. Those aboard the Knox are doing their best to reduce the damage caused by the rebel forces of CSS, a faction that frown on technology and their bloodthirsty ways are really getting out of h [...]


    3. It's not often that I get to read Sci-Fi romances these days, but truth be told, it is one of my favorite romance genres. I absolutely love it because of the sheer creativity that has to go into. Damage Control is by new-to-me author Jess Anastasi. It is the second book in the Valiant Knox series, and it can completely be read as a standalone novel. I haven't read the first book in the series myself. I think it would probably add to this story, but it definitely doesn't take anything away. It is [...]


    4. The cover isn’t the only thing that’s hot….Yes, I admit it. The cover was the first thing to grab my attention. Would you believe that shade of blue-green is my favorite color? I was thrilled to find the story matched the sexy cover completely!This is a romantic suspense story set in a futuristic world where the war of good vs. evil is still being waged, but this time in the dark reaches of space. Captain Leigh Alphin is a war veteran in charge of fighter jets and their pilots on the battl [...]


    5. Weel I was expecting something more besides the drama, but I was lef hanging unfortunatelyHere we have the drama of a love between recruit (Mia) and a CO (Leigh), but also the frama of a relationship between an older man and a very young woman.That's the fulcrum of this book. Their feelings about the problems that could result if they make their relationship public. Would he be demoted? Will she be discharged from the program? Also I found that he, and all the high ranking officers of the Valian [...]


    6. Originally published at Reading RealityWelcome to the Valiant Knox, a floating city in space. More like a flying city. Think Battlestar Galactica, with the long-running war being not quite as devastating. At least not yet.The Valiant Knox is an Alliance space battleship, on the side of the good guys fighting the evil CSS. The CSS believes in bombing everyone back to a religious-based stone age, even as they use stolen Alliance space ships to get that job done.The CSS still strikes this reader as [...]


    7. Torn between duty and desire, Captain Leigh “Alpha” or “Hardass” Alphin of the Fighter Force is horrified to find himself drawn to a recruit that his team is supposed to train…and vice versa. A relationship is forbidden on so many levels; he has fifteen years on her and fraternising with a recruit could probably get them thrown into military prison. But Mia Wolfe isn’t like any other recruit that Leigh has known; it isn’t long before he asks for her help in unearthing the traitor i [...]


    8. In a sea of contemporary and paranormal romances, it's nice to indulge in a SyFy romance. Nothing to technical my brain would hurt but enough that I knew I wasn't in Kansas anymore, Damage Control was exactly what I needed.Leigh Alphin is captain of the Fighter Force of the battleship Valiant Knox. His job is to train new recruits and to fight the CSS rebel forces. When the rebels attack a transport, Leigh and his fighters swoop in. Leigh manages to save the day and rescues a young woman he feel [...]


    9. Captain Leigh Alphin is captain of the Fighter Force of the battleship Valiant Knox. He rescued Mia Wolf off a transport that was under attack and she is now the new commander for the Valiant Knox. Mia is someone who doesn’t take any guff off anyone and she is locked down tight, which makes it hard for Leigh to get a read on Mia.This is a sci-fi book that has a great flow to the story. The MC aren’t in love immediately. What they are is wary around each other. The hero is seriously so ALPHA [...]


    10. 3.5 stars I liked the romance between Leigh and Mia. Even though their chemistry was immediate, the effort they made to avoid giving in was comical. The relationship wasn't rushed either which was a nice change of pace. Leigh had obvious appreciation for Mia's brains and body and always treated her respectfully. He protected her-not to the point of coddling, thankfully, and treated her as a partner. For her part, Mia wasn't bowled over by an older guy, much less her commanding officer. She was f [...]


    11. I didn't think I would like this book, don't get me wrong the world sounded fantastic but I've never been a fan of the older man/woman falling for the younger boy/girl. That being said this book was rather good. I thought the world was well built and comprehensive (and this is the second book in this series yet still well done) and I genuinely liked both Leigh and Mia, also the storyline made the book very hard to put down. Overall well done.


    12. Directly preceding Cover Fire, a novel by Jess Anastasi I reviewed back in June (you can read the review here) is the novel Damage Control, which I am reviewing today. And, yes, I read them out of order, which you probably shouldn’t do. However, if you’re a fan of Laura Griffin or Suzanne Brockman and like the idea of a little sci-fi thrown in, I recommend that you give the Valiant Knox series a try—but, in order. 😉I enjoyed Damage Control almost as much as I enjoyed Cover Fire. There i [...]


    13. This is one crazy whirlwind of an adventurous romance. Poor Alpha doesn't know what hit him when he meets Mia. And as he puts it so well, he has no idea what happens to his control when she's around him. I felt a bit sorry for Mia though. She spent so much time fighting off attackers and getting patched up. But she's a scrappy, resilient little thing. On another note, I'm reading this series backwards so on to Book 1 'Escape Velocity' for me.I received a complimentary copy of this book from the [...]


    14. the reason I gave it 3 stars although it was a sweet story was because it emphasized too much on the fact that she was younger than him and his subordinate. it made me feel like their relationship was wrong in some way. i had to keep reminding myself they were adults. this worry took the enjoyment of getting through the novel.


    15. After really enjoying the first book in this series (Escape Velocity) I was looking forward to this one, however, sadly, it didn’t quite work for me. Mostly because of the characters and the romance.Leigh is a serious career soldier. He’s risen fast through the ranks over his fifteen years of service to lead the Fighter Force on the Valiant Knox. He’s driven, dedicated and seriously good at his job – yet he’s willing to throw all of that over because Mia swans into his life. Oh, he put [...]


    16. 3.5 StarsDamage Control by Jess Anastasi is the second book in the Valiant Knox series of science fiction romance books. The year is 2436, the story takes place in orbit over the planet Ilari in the Brannon system and the United Earth Forces have been fighting a twenty year war against Christ’s Sunday Soldiers, a religious movement that sees technology as evil and wants a return to the fire and brimstone God. The war encompasses three planets in the system and started over interfere by the Uni [...]


    17. Being Captain of the Fighter Force on the Valiant Knox starship is a position Leigh obtained through hard work and perseverance - and someone is trying to bring it down. The war with the CSS has taken an even deadlier turn, with moles on board the ship working to cause its destruction. When the new batch of recruits is set upon in transport, Leigh saves the life of the bright and beautiful young woman Mia. As a recruit under his command she's off limits - but there is no denying the scorching he [...]


    18. ***********I received this in exchange for an honest review******5 Stars!! Damage Control is the second book in the Knox series, by Jess Anastasi. A romantic fantasy, it comes off very "Divergant"-esk, with the future setting and the other-world local and technology. Set mainly on "The Valiant Knox" CAFF Leigh Alphin prepares to train the next set of FP recruits when he is thrown for a loop having Recruit Mia Wolfe is thrust into his life by an out of the blue attack by the CSS, a radical religi [...]


    19. This is a book 2 in a sci-fi-style romance set on a permanent airship (think Star-Trek size from the sounds of it). We have Leigh as the head of the fighter pilots on board the ship, with the entire ship in a decades war against a group on the nearby planet and in space. They are holding the line with infusions of new trainees periodically. They are anticipating a new batch when the transport is attacked on the way to the main ship. It makes it in but several trainees are injured, including Mia. [...]


    20. I received a digital copy of this book for free on a read-to-review basis from NetGalleyI'm usually a little more skeptical when it comes to romance books, but Damage Control blew me away. It was the kind of page-turner that you didn't want to read before bed, otherwise you'd still be reading when the sun rose. I loved watching the blossoming love of the two main characters, which wasn't an instantaneous thing, and that's what made the book so great in my eyes. The romance woven through the book [...]


    21. Series: Valiant Knox #2Damage Control answers several questions I had about the war and how it started. I liked all the subterfuge the CSS is now using to fight. I obviously don’t want the CSS to win but I like that their advancing warfare is creating new elements to the fighting and ramping up the tension of the story. I can’t wait to see what comes in the next book.I really liked Leigh in this one, even when he was being a stuffy military Captain. Though he wanted to resist Mia once he rea [...]


    22. Captain Leigh Alphin is honorable, straightforward and nicknamed Hardass and it is imperative that he stops thinking about one of his new recruits in that way in this thrilling sci-fi romance.Mia Wolf’s new commander is completely gorgeous and his glances send heat searing through her but neither of them can afford to make this mistake and the reader can’t help but get caught up in all the excitement as Leigh and Mia discover that there is no hiding from temptation in space. The chemistry bu [...]


    23. I'm not generally much into sci-fi, but the description hooked me, so I gave it a try. I must admit, I really enjoyed it! I didn't wind up putting it down until 4AM when I turned the final page. Lots of intrigue & action with some hot sex thrown in to boot!Leigh Alphin is the Captain of the Fighter Force of the battleship Valient Knox. He's worked hard to achieve all that he has and is considered a legend to new recruits. When the enemy opens fire on an unarmed transport bringing in the new [...]


    24. I have to admit that I am usually not a fan of SyFy, but let me just tell you that I thoroughly enjoyed this read. It was just enough to allow me to get lost in the book and I was surprised with every twist and turn in the plot! Very well thought out and written I thought. The characters were ver well developed and likable. Captain Leigh Alphin is know for being a stickler for the rules and has earned his nickname honestly. When he rescues Mia and she joins his ship, Leigh knows that he is going [...]


    25. 3.5-4 stars.This was a fun read. I don’t read much Scifi, but usually when I do, they turn out real page turners.We have Mia and Leigh here. Mia is a new recruit working under Leigh, which presents to be a problem when they start developing feelings for each other.In the middle of them getting to know each other, we also get a bit of a mystery when they team up to find a traitor among them. In that regard, I had my suspicions, but in other things I had no clue what would happen, lol. The roman [...]


    26. *I received an ARC from Entangled Publishing in exchange for an honest review*Damage Control is an action/suspense/sci-fi romance. The book blurb does a good job of describing the basics of the story and the author did a great job of creating a believable world in which the story is set. Captain Leigh Alphin, captain of the fighter force on the battleship Valiant Knox, is exactly what you want a hero to be. He's a handsome, strong, commanding figure who is not afraid to lay it on the line for th [...]


    27. Mia Wolfe is one of the latest crop of recruits for fighter pilot training. They nearly didn't make it to the battleship.Leigh Alphin is the CAFF ( Captain of the Fighter Force). He is known to his friends as Alpha. He and his squadron had to protect the damaged troop carrier home. Mia, with her incredible bravery and intelligence, attracts Leigh's attention from day one. He is fifteen years older than her, and her C.O. it will ruin both their careers if he can't get her out of his head. Mia is [...]


    28. I'm not a fan of sci/fi or spaceship readsjust never been my thing. This was my second read of an Entangled Otherworld and it will not be my last!! LOVE these books and Damage Control was an awesome read. I would call it a romantic suspense. Mia is a new recruit on the ship, Valiant Knox. The captain, Leigh, is a hard-ass but has a soft spot for Mia after he saves her from the recruit ship as she's trying to save a friend. When he learns there's a spy on board, Mia suddenly steps up to help and [...]


    29. A great fun sci-fi book that has intensity and a hot alpha.From beginning to end Leigh could nit fight the attraction to his new recruit Wolfe. Even though he is her superior officer. Between trying to find the traitor in the mist and Mia, the extremely smart recruit Leigh is fightijng a losing battle.Mia's first encounter with Leigh intensifies her admoration for him. In order to save everyone he uses Mia's talent to discover the traitors and this he finds himself through Mia's eyes.Great chara [...]


    30. Slightly disappointedGood book and decent read, but the ending was a bit of a disappointment. I won't give away any spoilers, but I felt as if a little more discretion and self control could have saved them. Additionally, how much cooler would it have been if they found all the spies and saved the lives of the recruits instead of being so focused on each other they missed obvious signs and people were killed. It didn't feel like a true romance nor an action novel. This book fell short somewhere [...]
