Seren and Dom live on a spaceship where choice is rebellion. But when they dare to fall in love, the taste of freedom is so sweet they don't care about the consequences.
   
  I'll be posting the full story of The Loneliness of Distant Beings on Wattpad before my second book, The Glow of Fallen Stars, publishes on 24th August 2017.

  Seren's life might be confined to a tin can hurtling through space, but she wants more. More life. More passion. And the impossible: to feel sunshine on her skin.
        
  But then she meets Dom, and he changes everything. Suddenly her dull grey life becomes technicolour. She's not meant to love him, but to lose him would be like losing herself. She's determined to keep hold of what they have, no matter how dangerous ...

I saw the description, I was like "After this ship docks.. I'm going off with you"~~~ -Titanic
Beautiful opening paragraph. This chapter sets the scene very well and makes readers immediately care about the narrator. I guess there's no point giving constructive criticism since you've already published this, but Wattpad habits stick!
⭐️Wow - thanks so much! It's always tough to figure out where to start, so I'm glad you think I did ok😊⭐️
I brought this book when I was in Australia, and I loved it. One of the best books I have ever read. I want to be an author too someday! This is a fantastic book, I love it so much! I will definitely read it again and again!
For some reason, I get a "Across The Universe" (by Beth Revis) vibe. Maybe because they're both in space
I disagree about the sentence length. I think your prose style is beautiful. (Although many Wattpaddians disagree with me about this, and prefer shorter sentences and paragraphs).
