I received a copy of this book for an honest review. I don't usually read Sci-Fi but I'm a fan of Cara's and once again I'm loving this new Sci-Fi series. There's a little bit of everything. From hot romance to sitting on the edge of your seat waiting to turn the page. Cara has a gift for developing great characters and a each story is well written with a wonderful storyline. This series is well worth the money. You will not regret purchasing this series. HAPPY READING:)
After reading the action-packed previous book in the series and encountering the hero in a supporting role, I was thrilled that the next book would be Dale's. But then I started reading and realized that yet again, the author wowed me not only with a likeable hero, but a heroine that intrigued me from the moment she entered her first scene. I devoured this book in one sitting and now can only wait eagerly for more. The story opens with Dale Homme, a cyborg and owner of a deeply hidden space version of a chop shop. He and his team acquire ships and retrofit them to order for big sales. The business is not shady, but some of the customers are so the operation is deep in a thought to be lifeless moon and cloaked from discovery. Of late, Dale has become restless. He left cy-ops, but now he misses the intensity and excitement of the missions. With a hundred twenty-eight employees depending on him for their livelihood, though, he can't just ditch the business. But then the shuttle returns with candidates for the open position of tech work that will hopefully produce a computer wizard who can figure out the glitches in their latest work project. A mysterious female who tells more lies than truths and is not who she says she is gets Dale's attention. He should hire one of the others, but his gut tells him that there is something important behind her deception and he wants to know what it is and help her. Illumina is a Faria, but she is the only one in existence without her beautiful fairy wings. And that's because her ex-husband turned into a torturous fiend after she wanted to divorce him when he showed his true and awful colors once they were married. Now, he stalks her across the galaxy with plans to kill her and anyone who gets in his way or helps her. Illumina sees the top secret work for Dale Homme as a god-send. She'll hide out and take a breather from her running and do a good job for Dale while she's at it. Unfortunately, she wasn't expecting him to be cyborg and a very perceptive one at that. He knows she lied to him, but he's biding his time. And while he bides his time, they both feel the attraction tighten between them. Illumina can't give in to the passion and must leave if she is to keep Dale and the other's safe even though the big cyborg seems quite capable of fighting his own battles. So, this was a fast paced and easy to read spicy sci-fi action romance. It's perfect for the moments I just wanted to lose myself in a good story that didn't delve deep, but entertained and engaged me. I love the cyborg world that the author has created with the top secret special ops teams, the fraternity of cyborg warriors, the spicy romance, and of course the mission. In this case the mission was to protect Illumina and bring down her evil ex who was getting away with more than just his murderous stalking since he had powerful and wealthy connections he used to protect his dirty secrets. The characters aren't deeply developed, but they are developed enough to get to know them and connect with them. As I pointed out earlier, I liked Dale from his intro in the last book. It was neat getting his background and how he became cyborg and came to own the chop shop. He was most definitely an assertive leader, but he tempered this with understanding so that he could see the potential in his team of workers when no one else could. Illumina was the fascinating woman from an alien race. There was a little bit about her r
I was provided an ARC of Captured by the Cyborg (Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance Book 3) in exchange for an honest review. Have I mentioned that Sci-fi romance is one of my FAVORITE genres? Well, it is and Captured encompasses everything I love about this genre! Illumina is on the run from a very bad man, and an even more horrible situation. She is recovering from her escape from that man, while running for her life. Then, the opportunity comes to work at the top secret factory below the surface of a moon very few know how to find! Perfect, she can be safe and heal a bit before it’s time to run again. Only thing that might stand in her way is Dale, the Cyborg owner who stirs feelings in her she long thought dead. Dale is an ex-Cyborg Operations field agent. Think super solider with advanced robotics or cybernetics. He, along with a few others, have a computer in their head to control their cybernetics limbs, but they are still half human, just really big and strong! Like REALLY BIG! Dale sees through Illumina's false story right from the start, but instead of sending her packing, he hires her. Why? Well not only is he completely and utterly attracted to her, but it is innately built into the men chosen as cyborgs to protect. He can tell Illumina is running and hiding, so it alerts all those instincts. He will do what he has to do to keep her safe, even if he has to hold her prisoner. The story was one that I flew through and read in just a few hours; I absolutely couldn’t put it down once I started! There is the perfect mix of danger, betrayal, action and romance, I absolutely loved every page! I can’t wait to see who gets the next story!...Sara
