Five Boundless Stars
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!
