    1. BUY THIS BOOK NOW! How does an author create utopia in a dystopic world? Enter the Amber Zone. This book blew my mind. It's the type of story which really appeals to me. The components with the dash of kink made this a highly enjoyable read.In this world, the there are different classes of people in the former United States. It's based on.tics. The discrimination against those who have "defective DNA" in this book is horrifying. It's horrifying because it's very easy to see a world turn into thi [...]


    2. 4.5 starsSpoiler free Let me start off by saying I wasn't sure if I would like this book or not. Within the couple of chapters I read glued me in for a amazing ride. In the future 2050 influenza took out over ninety-two percent of the world population. 2052 what was left in the United States, the government and military started to come with supervised Re population laws. Everyone living under the government rules and control had to be submitted to genetic, psychological, and intelligence testing [...]


    3. *3.5 we shall save the Nutella jars from the epidemic* So you can tell where this is going. Me and my girl dayana decided awhile back that we should do a buddy read and knowing me I was like fuck yes! After back and forth messages for a week we finally started being amber though she had already read it, I'm sorry dayana I took me so long to save you from the asshat heroine who's been pissing you off but it's All good now. Behold gif fest:Dayana:Me:Dayana:Me:Dayana:Me:Dayana:Me:Dayana:Me:Dayana:M [...]


    4. Let me start off with a big warning that you will need tissues reading this book. If you don't need tissues then you are a cold-hearted bitch (or possibly a Cylon). Ok, now that that is out of the way, let me tell you why this book was amazing.To start with, the world-building was excellent! The prologue and introduction as well as the descriptions throughout the book are rich and complete, allowing the reader to "see" this New Atlanta in living technicolor.The characterization of the "Gov" and [...]


    5. This book screams everything that I stay away fromDrippy vaginas & New World building. I decided to put those issues aside and I got an advanced copy from the author in return for an Honest review.I enjoyed this book very much. We were given the info on how this 'New Atlanta' came about, why, how it works all without the information being forced upon us. Instead it played right into the story and it read really well. Xander not only has the coolest name EVER, he was a take no shit Alpha and [...]


    6. 4 1/2 beautiful stars - rounded up to 5Approx word count 75,000Firstly a big thank you to the Author for sending me an ARC of this wonderful story. It was a privilege and pleasure to read.This story has got it all, mystery and suspense, twists and turns, heartbreak and love! The world and character building was astonishing and drew me right in. The sex scenes are tasteful and steamy. I loved the first M/F/M scene it had an interesting twist that appealed to me personally. There are a couple of B [...]



    7. 3.5-4 starsThis was a pretty good story. I liked all the characters and the story line is interesting. This is the first thing I've read by this author and I do plan to read more of her work in the future.This story takes place in a world where a deadly influenza has killed most of the inhabitants of Earth. 3 cities were rebuilt by the US Gov afterwards and re-population restrictions were put in to place by the Gov to control what gets passed on, including sterilizing citizens that have genes ca [...]


    8. Eugenics. The science of improving stock and plays an important role in animals. But apply it to humans and wars have been fought over it. But this is the dystopian future that Sylvia Ryan creates in Being Amber. In the near future a particularly virulent disease has wiped out a large portion of the population. By the time it's over the surviving government, in an effort to preserve certain 'strains' in humanity, such as blonde hair, and at the same time ensure that genetic defects are eliminate [...]

    10. Probably closer to 4-1/2, not quite perfect, but this was a really intriguing story. I found myself thinking about the characters when I wasn't reading it. Contemplating their situation.This is the year 2075, 25 years after a worldwide flu pandemic wiped out 92% of the population. When the US Government pulled the country up by the bootstraps, they noticed that some traits, like blond hair or blue eyes, were on the verge of disappearing, so they instituted genetic testing to split the survivors [...]


    11. Lets start with the rating for this book. I agonized over 4 stars, and its all fault. It doesn't QUITE get to 5 stars for me, but if only we had half stars, I'd go 4.5 stars easily. Since I round down, sadly, Being Amber suffers thru no fault of its own.This is a dystopian future, after a virus has decimated the world's population. No zombies, for once, but we do get a new society, with lots of interesting foibles. I loved the classification system, like, really loved it. I'm not generally a fa [...]


    12. Sooooo I picked this book up as a freebie and to be honest I don't remember purchasing it at all. Either way there was something about the blurb that said to me, "you might like this". I've been looking for adult dystopians with romance so this could have been a good fit. The premise has potential. A society that has been wiped out by a terrible disease that killed off like 98% of the population. So to rebuild, paranoia ensues and a society is created where everyone is genetically tested in an e [...]


    13. It's not often I encounter a book that takes me a few days to write a review for. However, I finished Being Amber three days ago and I'm just now sitting down to put my thoughts to paper. Don't get me wrong, I think Being Amber is the best book I have read in months. Author Sylvia Ryan has done an excellent job explaining this Dystopian society. The depth of the characters was incredible. What Jaci had to endure, being ripped from all she knew and sterilized without a choice had me in tears. How [...]


    14. The Dystopian theme of this book really spoke to me. The world building was interesting and kept my interest throughout the book.The Good Stuff: In the near future, when an influenza pandemic breaks out killing over 90% of the world's population our governments decided it was imperative they repopulate with only "perfect" specimens. Why is this good? Well, it's not but the world building surrounding this fact was actually really good. The government tests all humans as they become of age and det [...]


    15. There's a lot of great stuff going on in this book, along with some things I wasn't crazy about. Time to elaborate!First and foremost, the setting and the premise are superb. Ms. Ryan's post-apocalyptic USA is detailed, developed, and well within the realm of believability. The world-building alone is enough reason to pick up this book. The concept of the people cast to the bottom rungs of society banding together to make their lives as fulfilling as possible is appealing (and not unlike the beg [...]


    16. I need to start this review with the statement that I’m not a huge fan of Dystopian Romances. However, Being Amber has changed my mind! OMG! The story that Sylvia Ryan has woven with this one story has made me rethink this. I’m now eagerly looking forward to reading the rest of this series. Unfortunately it’s still in the works! I don’t think she’ll be able to write them fast enough for me.On to the review…A pandemic has wiped out most of the US. The Government has stepped in and cre [...]


    17. Brought to you by OBS reviewer SammyWhat an awesome story, fresh, fresh, fresh! I’m ecstatic that this is only the beginning of a series. The world the author created was amazing and, I would like to learn more about the other designations and how the government controls those societies and what happens in the future with the Amber culture and how Jaci and Xander fare.This book is well written with an excellent story line. It’s a very poignant story with so many twists and turns you don’t [...]


    18. I was looking very forward to reading this book as I am massively into SciFi and also like reading erotic literature.I was disappointed. Not that this is a bad book, I just found it utterly boring: I just couldnt get into it, and it was not for want of trying.Maybe to be fair, I had wrong or too high expectations. If I think back, I kind of expected something dark, possibly a bit rough what I got to read was an ok - maybe even well written - dystopian story with a bit of middle-of-the-road eroti [...]


    19. Won as part of the 2013 Holiday Party in theErotic Enchants GroupThis was amazing. Being Amber far exceeded my expectations. I fell in love with both Xander and Jaci. It was lovely reading about Jaci and her journey in becoming an Amber. Xander was sexy, commanding and protective. And I do say I loved Ryan's take on a dystopian world. The Amber Zone actually sounded like an incredible place to live if it wasn't for the government. This is more than just a HOT story, I teared up a couple of times [...]


    20. This was just an OK read for meI wanted it to be so much more. I loved the premise of a post-apocalyptic dystopian society where human survivors are color coded based on reproductive suitability. I just found the execution lackingI couldn't emotionally connect with Xander and the way he kept fighting his feelings. The sexual chemistry between Xander and Jaci was also lukewarm with some attempts at light BDSM. It was all so mechanical with no real oomphe on manI need juicy details and more passio [...]


    21. Was a BRILLIANT read. The emotions you experience reading this book goes from the one extreme to the next. I would rate it a tissue factor of 8!! Thank you for a book that really really was worth reading!


    22. Sylvia Ryan has created an intriguing blend of futuristic, post-apocalyptic, erotic, and ménage themes in the first book in her New Atlanta series entitled Being Amber that sucked me in from the very beginning and has me clamoring for the next installment! Through vivid worldbuilding and immensely appealing characters I was left in awe of what Ms. Ryan created and applaud this unique story. America has gone through many catastrophes and to keep things running they've created different communiti [...]


    23. Being Amber Book 1 of The New Atlanta Series. Sylvia RyanI received this from the publishers in return for an honest review. I don't gush and give false praise – I don't believe that helps readers or authors so what you read is what I truly feel about a book. This is a book in the urban fantasy/dystopian genre. I've read a few book set in the future like this one, and there are more planned in this series. What I love about the idea of a series is that Sylvia has already done the world setting [...]


    24. Earth, 2052. A catastrophic pandemic has decimated the planet and the survivors are left to make very hard decisions including how to go about repopulating the planet. One consequence is genetic testing to screen for imperfections and diseases. Those who successfully pass live the life of luxury with others of their kind to be fruitful and multiply, while those who fail are carted off and segregated to live out their lives however they can.This is the story of Jaci Harmon, a female thought to be [...]


    25. Read this review on GraveTells here and see similar book recommendations: gravetells/contemporary-roContent warning: This book contains serious emotional themes (suicide, forced sterilization, and sexual assault) which may be disturbing to some readers. I cannot say enough good things about this heartfelt, incredibly moving book! Post-apocalyptic dystopian romances are hard to nail down. Usually they fall hard to one side: either heavily erotic or overwhelmingly story based (read: lacking in emo [...]


    26. **I was given an ARC copy by the author for my honest review.**Being Amber! As always I will jump right in on my personal thoughts on this book because you do not need a synopsis, that is already provided by the author.Being Amber is a great scifi erotica read set in the future. I really enjoyed the world and story Ryan is building. It is not one that is typically done that much in erotica and I felt it authentic and interesting. The flow of the story is very well done and I enjoyed the tension [...]


    27. 4.5 stars soooo close to being a 5 star read for me.Being Amber is the story of Jaci and Xander. Jaci is a woman who, in a future dystopian world, has been forced from her home and relegated to a lower social status because of a detected defective gene. From her pampered existence as a Sapphire, she is sent to live in the Amber zone and subjected to immediate sterilization. Xander is the man assigned to care for and protect her in her new life. I really enjoyed this book - I have to say I'm surp [...]


    28. OMG - you must read this book!! This was recommended to me by a member and may be one of the very best recommendations ever!This takes place in the future after the United States has suffered a major health crisis and most of the people have died. The remaining people are split into factions based on multiple ideals of what the government wants to create. This is no surprise to anybody who has read any post apacolytic books in the past number of years. Jaci finds herself being sent to Amber aft [...]


    29. I wanted to give it five stars, but ended up going with four. I'll get the positives out of the way before I start in on what I didn't like.Jaci and Xander had a great relationship, and I found their misunderstandings and conflicts convincing. I didn't find him as Domly as I was expecting, but I didn't really find that a problem. Likewise, the kink seemed fairly tame, but again, it didn't bother me because the chemistry was there.The worldbuilding was what really wowed me - I frickin' love dysto [...]
