Kai Andros’s orders were simple. Get in. Gather the intel on the terrorist organization. Get out. Then he met her. Mariska. Beautiful. Innocent. Ignorant of her father’s atrocities. And marked for death. His orders said nothing about saving her. But he did. He went off-mission.
Can a rogue cyborg outrun both Cyber Operations and the terrorists to save the woman he loves?
Three Boundless Stars
I was provided a copy of Mated with the Cyborg in exchange for an honest review.
This was NOT what I was expecting. I have read a few cyborg books, and I was expecting our hero to be very Terminator eques, which Kai Arnold was not. He is funny and charming; and I really liked him, but that is because he is essentially human with enhanced cybernetics. Why this makes him a Cyborg? I do not know; but the spin on Cyborg’s was interesting. He has been sent to infiltrate a terrorist cell in the guise of the 5th daughter, Mariska’s, new Android.
Mariska’s life is far from peaches and cream. She does not look like the others from her race, and is shunned for it; so much so that her mother was put to death for birthing a deformed child. (Pretty freaking awful.) Oh, and these people are corrupt religious nuts.
Oh Joy, even better! She has been treated like less than garbage her entire life.
“Women’s value was measured by their ability to produce children, preferably male ones. A disfigured, homely female never to be mated wasn’t worth saving.”
When Mariska is sentenced to a fate so awful I cannot even get into it; Kai will not stand by and let it happen. He goes off mission to save her.
Now of course this being a Romance things happen and they get together. Those scenes for me were just meh, but I did enjoy the rest of the story. I’m not sure if I will go back and read book one but I am intrigued. I give Mated with the Cyborg a solid 3 stars “I liked it.”
