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 isn’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.


1thoughtsJoe was just a normal cyborg, created to take orders and that’s it. However, something happened to his wiring and he was able to have his own individuality. So when the cyborgs are given a directive to be exterminated via suicide, Joe quickly hacks into the other cyborgs overriding their command base and gives them free will as well. Of course, this leads to a war between the military and the rogue cyborgs. Which is where Chloe and Joe meet. Chloe is assigned to extract DNA samples from the captured cyborg (Joe). Even though he is crude, he does not harm her like he has the previous people who were sent into his cell.

This is my first cyborg romance and I have to say, it won’t be my last. I’ve read other books by Eve but this is by far my favorite story of hers. I liked that even though they were cyborgs they were also human. However, even though they looked human, they were also cyborgs. You see, there were no metal parts showing on his body, everything is internal. He could randomly hack into the closest computer system at will, he healed fast and had no pain receptors so he didn’t feel anything. You never forgot that he was partially a robot.

Eve did a great job with this story. I was captured from the second that cyborgs went rogue and started killing humans. She gave them a dark side. They go into towns and kidnap women for bed-mates, and apparently the older folks are kidnapped for parts. It was all a little creepy, but it worked. I really enjoyed the different elements that Eve brought to the table with this one. It wasn’t some hot and steamy erotica, there was some grit to it too.
