This is my unsolicited review.
How it all began. Asimov spins a good tale without drowning the reader in heavy science.
I might have to re-read the Robot stories as refresher for the connections.

Hari Seldon has been whisked from the University to a secretive sector on Trantor.
They abhor hair. I don't know why, but everyone is permanently depilitated when they hit puberty. I'm wondering how the mothers cope with hairy kids. Maybe I'll find out.
Anyway, he and his 'better keep her mouth shut until spoken to' female companion are required to cover their hair, so Sunmaster gives them head coverings (and strips for the eyebrows) that will cover their hair.
Hari Seldon is trying to get his on and it keeps snapping off:
"Begin just above your eyebrows," said Sunmaster. His fingers seemed to twitch, as though eager to help.
Seldon said, suppressing a smile, "Would you do it for me?"
And Sunmaster drew back, saying, almost in agitation, "I couldn't. I would be touching your hair."
I started laughing. I couldn't help it. LOL
I'm agreeable to peoples religious, cultural, personal, up to a point political, etc.. beliefs and ways, when in Rome and all that. But I couldn't help it. Everything leading up to the head coverings wound up just making him sound so aghast and prissy at having to touch hair. Especially since he had said more than once that he has dealt with outworlders before.
This book is related to the Assassins series. This qualifies as what could be a prequel for said series. I recommend reading the amazing series in order, if possible.
Grace's POV is where we begin reading this quick read. She is the kind of girl that wants forever. The kind you take home to your mother.
James has never been the forever kind. For Grace, he will learn how. This is a small piece of how they get together. Tugging on our heartstrings, he chases the one he loves.
This was a small and simply sweet read. Sexy tension is in the room whenever these two are. Learning how they got together, when we can appreciate it later in their son's story. I give this yummy piece a 4/5 Kitty's Paws UP!
