Machines aren’t supposed to feel, but this cyborg can’t help falling in love.

Assigned as a specimen collector for a captured cyborg, Chloe is intrigued by the machine disguised as a man. Kidnapped during his daring escape, he shows her that despite the chip in his brain, his humanity is not completely lost.

Formerly known as unit X109GI, Joe is on a quest to discover his origin. While he doesn’t find the answers he’s looking for, he does discover that affection and lust aren’t just for humans. But when it comes to a battle between logic and love, which side will the cybernetic organism—once a man—choose?

Evaluating his feelings will have to wait though because the military isn’t done with Joe. But their threats against him pale in comparison before the shocking discovery of project C791, the revelation of which stuns the rebel cyborgs—and ignites a fury for vengeance.

Warning: This story contains violence towards the heroine that might offend some readers, but rest assured the hero kicks the offending butts. This is a spicy romance featuring an ultra hot, cyborg male. Reader titillation is advised.

My Review -

OMG I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED THIS BOOK!!!! This book had everything that you are looking for in a story that will keep you glued to the pages: suspense, mystery, action, emotional content that will have your heart aching and a gorgeous, hunky hero that will have you wishing you were the one getting his special treatment.

Oh where to begin! Lets start in the beginning with X109GI or I should say Joe because despite what the military wants people to believe, and for Joe and his comrades to believe about themselves, Joe is more then just a robot, more then just a cyborg with mechanical parts and computer components, but a living being with feelings and emotions that may have been buried or shut off but not extinguished. Upon Joe's awakening he realizes the injustice that is placed upon him and his fellow cyborgs and sets on a course to ensure their survival and continued existence despite the military's attempts in destroying them.

Chloe hasn't had an easy life and some of it has been so traumatic that she can't even remember some of it and feels that she is merely existing. Finally for the first time in her life she starts to feel alive all the result of being around Joe who has been captured by the military and is being experimented on.

However, Joe has other plans as he sets his escape in motion and he takes Chloe with him because she has somehow made him feel more alive as well. Both Chloe and Joe discover feelings for each other but Joe is unable to understand what he is feeling and why he is feeling them. Chloe on the other hand sees Joe for what he truly is: a strong, powerful, sexy man who is not only protective of her but wants to show her pleasures that no man has ever been able to do before.

What occurs next are some intense, passionate scenes between Joe and Chloe and their realization that what they feel for reach other is beyond their expectations. Unfortunately it is not a smooth ride for these two as conspiracy occurs and trust, friendship and loyalty is put to the test and the ending will surprise you.

I LOVE this book and this series and I can't wait to read book 2 when it comes out because if this first book is any indication of the series the next book will be just as exciting and stimulating as this one. As Eve would say GO METAL!

  3. I have to say, this book sounds fascinating. I have never read a "Cyborg" erotic love story...this would be my first :) Its going on my list. Thanks Ollie!

    P.S. Am I the only one who thought "Johnny 5 is Alive!!" after I read the first sentance? Or am I stuck in the 80's? Lol!
