F841 had broken the programming that made her a slave. She was now a droid without a purpose. And then he came. Solus headed a team that was searching for the remaining female cyborgs. On a bleak and arid mining world, he finds one. But she is unaware of what she is. Despite his vows to never display any human traits, Solus is intrigued and attracted to the confused woman. F841 (Fiona) is unsettled by the revelations made by the cyborgs who take from the only home she remembers. But she is experiencing a strange reaction to the one called Solus. Even as the two explore the powerful chemistry between them, the humans who made them seek to retrieve their creations.
This is the second in the More Than Machines series and I would highly recommend starting with the first one. I'm really enjoying this creative spin on cyborgs. Solus was an excellent secondary character in the previous book and I'm so glad that he has his own story. Fiona is perfect for him. There's an interesting storyline as well as some very hot sex. The development of Fiona and Solus' relationship is well thought out and actually quite sweet. They are both so unsure and very naive about love. Like the first, there is action and build up for next in the series. I know I'll be eager waiting. The great character building and intriguing plot make this story a very enjoyable read.
She thought she was a robot, defective and unique among her kind, until he taught her how to live again.
F814 exists to serve the humans until the day they try 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.
Each of the books in the Cyborgs: More Than Machines series can be read individually, but for complete reader enjoyment, it is recommended you read them in order.
Book 1 C791
