If you prefer one-dimension, clean, romance then this may not be quite your thing.
On the other hand, it may introduce you to a few new dimensions!
Amazon recommended this because I'd bought novels by Jan Jones. That particular source hasn't disappointed me yet and it hasn't this time either.
Max Seventeen is tough, gritty, geeky sci-fi, romance with kick-ass action. Every character has layers, The plot twists and turns like a ... twisty turny thing. (Ok, I know I'm quoting there, but if you recognise the quote you'll probably like this.)
There's a blind spot in publishing for women who like a bit of romance, but they also want action, geekiness and mystery too. This book fills that gap nicely.
I'm off now to check out Kate Johnson's back catalogue - I hope she's got one!

Where to start?

I've been a fan of Kate's writing since The UnTied Kingdom: she writes *real* people, with character and flaws and actually interesting inner monologues. Her plots are bonkers and out me through the emotional wringer. I've been waiting for Max Seventeen since she was the sweaty, badly-behaved heroine of the tentatively titled 'Mad Space Book'.

She was worth the wait.

Max Seventeen (the book) is many things: witty, gross, violent, romantic, heart-breaking, thought-provoking, sexy and bloody good fun.

Max Seventeen (the person) is the perfect antithetical heroine: she can (will, does) rescue herself, thank you very much. She is utterly secure in who and what she is, and wastes no time feeling sorry for herself...well, when she does, she gives herself sh*t for it, so it doesn't count. She is fierce in every possible way and grows as a person throughout the book.

Riley is also fairly antithetical as a hero. He's big and good looking, but reserved and very prim and proper (to start with). If you're a Discworld fan, he's very, very much like Captain Carrot. But just because hes good, doesn't mean he's stupid. He is beautifully fleshed out (ha! I'm funny) and capable of experiencing and dealing with all of his emotions.

The crew of The Eurydice are fascinating; the plot kept throwing red herrings, Maguffins, and total shout-at-my-kindle shockers, and I really, really wished the book hadn't ended.

This is a wonderful book full of pirates, whores, runaways and heroes of both genders, and I fervently hope there's a series coming out of it.

If Terry Pratchett and Joss Whedon were combined into one and stuck in a female body (your mind's boggling, isn't it?), the result might be something like Kate Johnson. Her books are fabulous: real, flawed people who just can't help being their own worst enemies. I was sure I'd love Max Seventeen, and I did. Utterly glorious.

Stop reading this review now and go get yourself a copy.

Still here? Right, well, if you're a word nerd like me, I'm telling you, download the preview and check it out - there's something really slick and clever going on in the first chapter. Don't read the reviews because several of them give the game away. Just read it and see if you can spot what Kate Johnson's done. I loved it.

This is sort of science fiction. It is sort of romance. It is a bit of a suspense novel. In places it is very, very funny. It also has some interesting things to say about what it means to be female. All of this is wrapped up in an action packed and fast moving adventure story with our two heroes Riley and Max who end up on a space ship with no one they trust trying to keep alive as things get more and more complicated. In order to spice things up, as though they needed spiced any further, the author throws in a series of twists which often turn your whole understanding of the story and/or characters sideways.

This story is set in space but not in the shiny spaceships or among the exotic locations. It is set securely in the shabby, dangerous and particularly unlovely parts of space worlds and with people of negotiable honesty and morality. Our characters are enigmatic and troubled and absolutely not what they first appear. Most of the fun of this book is rolling with the plot and watching the author as she moves from one situation to another usually with a twist or turn thrown in along the way - and just when you are really enjoying yourself she will concentrate on an issue or cause something to happen to one of the characters which really causes you to pause and think.

As you can tell, I enjoyed this book a lot. There was one big twist at the beginning which was spectacular and well done but which i wasn't sure was needed - it made me feel like the author was playing games with teh reader for the sake of it. Apart from that it was excellently done and high quality entertainment

The last time I bought the paperback after reading the ebook was Kate Johnson's Untied Kingdom and I will be doing the same again with Max Seventeen. Definitely an amazing mad space book with a heart tugging gritty love story with two fabulous (actually make that a whole crew full) characters. Definitely the best book I've read for a long time (and I read a lot)

A fantastic love story set in space with the sort of larger-than-life feisty characters I have come to expect (and love) from this author. Totally believable world-building. It’s gritty, intense and pulls no punches, and the hero is just wonderful!
