Summary from Goodreads:
Life in the outer realm is a lawless, dirty, hard existence, and Solara Brooks is hungry for it. Just out of the orphanage, she needs a fresh start in a place where nobody cares about the engine grease beneath her fingernails or the felony tattoos across her knuckles. She's so desperate to reach the realm that she's willing to indenture herself to Doran Spaulding, the rich and popular quarterback who made her life miserable all through high school, in exchange for passage aboard the spaceliner Zenith.

When a twist of fate lands them instead on the Banshee, a vessel of dubious repute, Doran learns he's been framed on Earth for conspiracy. As he pursues a set of mysterious coordinates rumored to hold the key to clearing his name, he and Solara must get past their enmity to work together and evade those out for their arrest. Life on the Banshee may be tumultuous, but as Solara and Doran are forced to question everything they once believed about their world—and each other—the ship becomes home, and the eccentric crew family. But what Solara and Doran discover on the mysterious Planet X has the power to not only alter their lives, but the existence of everyone in the universe...


IF YOU ARE ON THE FENCE, SAY YES TO STARFLIGHT! I am so glad I picked up this (audio) book; it was just the sci-fi book I needed.

5 Reasons to read Starflight
1. Fantastic Banter - The banter between Solara and Doran is fantastic, they are so different and always arguing. No insta-love here :)

2. Ragtag group of shipmates - The rag tag group of shipmates is where Starflight reminded me of Firefly.  Each shipmate has a different backstory, a unique personality,  and they all semi-work together on one mission

3. Space Travel - Starflight is a space travel story, the group is flying off to different planets all while being chased through space.

4. Multiple sub-plots - Not only do the two main characters have their own subplots that intertwine throughout the book but the secondary characters also have different back stories that play roles as well.

5. Adventure heavy - The book is mainly plot driven with great character development too.  The team is faced with crazy scenarios with space pirates and bounty hunters.

Starlight is a fun, adventure heavy book full of high risk space travel plus a great cast of characters. I highly recommend this book if you want a great sci-fi read!
