Rules of Engagement

Cyberevolution IV (4)

I didn't know what to expect since I hadn't read the previous three books. The storyline is intriguing, to say the least. The Cyborg Nation is just that, a nation of created beings designed for war. What the creators didn't expect was for them to become sentient. They go rogue to create their own society as they are very short on women. The women are required to contract (marry) at least two and up to four men. The competition is fierce for a mate.

When Kameron, Damian, Kyle and Gavin stumble on Zoe, they know they want her, but don't know how to get her. Zoe is on a mission to locate her missing half-sister, Dr. Bronte Nichols (Cyborg Nation). She crosses into Cyborg airspace and her ship is destroyed. Kameron snags her from her ship five seconds before it is destroyed. They crash land on a planet and the fun begins.

I found myself laughing out loud at these "grown" men (they are technically only about 10 years old) trying to figure out how to court a woman based on a download of a manual on how to do so. When frustrated or angry with their counterparts, they acted as any 10 year old boy would; with their fists.

It was so sad sometimes, thinking of these beautiful men floundering with their emotions. In an earth setting, they would be beating women off of them with a stick. But they have no experience, no confidence, and no clue.

Zoe is insecure since she thinks they picked her because she was the only game in town. She grows to love them, but is hurt and angry when she thinks they don't feel the same for her. What will it take to convince her she's wrong?

I look forward to the next installment, and now will have to read the proceeding three books.

Book Blurb for Rules of Engagement

War is all that any of them have ever known, but the strategies the cyborgs, Kameron, Damien, Gavin, and Kyle, are familiar with don't seem to work nearly as well in their campaign to win Zoe. She's human, after all and completely unpredictable.

Zoe isn't certain what to make of the cyborgs-beyond the fact that they're seriously big and dangerous-and quite possibly four of the most handsome males she's ever seen. She's their enemy. They've made that abundantly clear. So why is it that they've suddenly taken the notion to convince her to contract with them?

More importantly, why is that she finds herself wanting to when it's probably the worst idea she's ever had?:

Rating: Carnal-multiple sexual partners, adult language and situations, menage a trios.
