F814 exists to serve the humans until they decide to terminate her. An instinct for survival makes her fight, but when she achieves freedom, she discovers she cannot throw off the chains of habit. Everything changes when another flesh covered droid arrives, a cyborg he calls himself, who teaches her she is more than a machine. Solus hates humanity, and even though he was born as a flawed human, he strives to eradicate all traces of it from his persona-until he meets F814. Meeting and touching her releases something in him. Has him yearning for things he doesn't understand. Makes him long for...affection. Before he can learn to love though, he must first tackle the task of reminding F814 that she is more than the sum of her mechanical parts. But of course, when dealing with an illogical thing like emotions, there is no sure plan for success.

As you can see, Eve Langlias' Cyborg series is popular around here.  In book one we are intruduced to a futuristic world where Cyborgs have revolted and regained their free will.  We met a team of them that rescued Chloe and now they are searching for her "sisters".  Solus and his team don't really expect to run into one of them at the abandoned asteroid mine, but now that they have, they will do anything to keep her safe and help her remember who she was.

F814 isn't really interested in all that.  After she revolted she decided she was just fine continuing to mine on the asteroid, after all, that is what she was programmed to do.  But her recent malfunction has given her strange new dreams and nightmares, and she finds Solus strangely interesting.  But the humans won't give up their prize so easily, making for a few great combat scenes as well.

Solus and F814 are both afraid of their emotions - they aren't logical - they don't make sense (does not compute).  They both fight them tooth and nail, but the emotions are stronger than their programming, but can either of them admit it when they both think emotions are flaws?  This was a fantastic addition to the series and I loved it.  It's hard to imagine that two cyborgs could be such dynamic and interesting characters, but Eve pulls it off wonderfully.  Eve's snarky humor is present throughout and is perfectly placed to really make a few scenes.  If you love Sci-fi, you must read this series.

Moments of Beauty
J.B. Heller
Publication date: March 23rd 2017
Genres: Contemporary, New Adult, Romance
Ugly. It’s the only word to describe my upbringing. It drove my need to capture every moment of beauty I could find. A glimpse of a mother’s love. A feather floating in the breeze. A ray of sunshine emerging on a rainy day.  And then there was her, Eliza Quinn, she signified everything I didn’t deserve. She showed me more beauty than I ever thought possible. And I took it all, despite knowing I was going to leave her, and never come back.  Leaving her five years ago was my biggest mistake, and my greatest regret. Now I need to make amends. I thought leaving her was the hardest thing I’d ever have to do, but that was before I knew I had to win her back.Add to Goodreads
