The only thing more dangerous than a suicide mission is falling in love… Amanda Mansfield has faced challenges in her life: the disapproval of her critical father and the near-fatal accident that ended a promising military career and resulted in her transformation to cyborg. Now a Cyber Operations field agent, she volunteers to lead the most dangerous Cy-Ops mission ever: infiltrating enemy territory to find the secret hideaway of a terrorist mastermind. The last thing she needs is an added complication. Like him. Sonny Masters. Her partner. A streetwise former thug turned cyber operative with a lethal grin. He can’t seem to understand she’s in charge and does not require his protection. He’s everything she dislikes—and everything her body wants. If they can keep their hands off each other long enough to complete the mission, they might just get out alive… Trapped with the Cyborg (Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance 4) is a standalone read.
3.5 (Four) Boundless Stars
I was provided a copy of Trapped with the Cyborg in exchange for an honest review. I had a little more trouble getting into this story than I did the others; I am not sure if it was the story or just my frame of mind, but this time around it just didn’t grab me. I liked the beginning; how they hooked up not knowing they were each other’s partner. It was hot and funny at the same time. Yet Amanda (Manny), who is supposed to be a badass cyborg, is so caught up in her own head; stuck on past hurts regarding her father’s cruel words, that it affects her decision making.
I really liked Sonny when he was introduced in Captured by the Cyborg and I’m glad he got his own story; yet he was also fighting past demons that affect the way he acted and reacted to situations involving Amanda. She was supposed to be the lead, yet, most of the time it seemed like he took charge. or they just worked together.
Their chemistry was crazy strong and Cara Bristol writes a great love scene. The action sequences were pretty awesome; I was on the edge of my seat many times. Overall, I really enjoyed the story, it’s not my favorite out of all of them, but it does make a great addition.
