Sara's Review: Hunted by the Cyborg (Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance #6) by Cara Bristol
APC PUBLISHER: Cara Bristol RELEASED: January 9, 2018 GENRE: scifi, romance, fantasy LENGTH: 381 pages FORMAT: ebook
Billionaire Carter Aymes, director of Cyber Operations, a covert cyborg force, devotes his wealth and life to saving others, rescuing hostages and other victims from desperate situations. His ultimate mission is to hunt down and eliminate Lamani, the alien terrorist mastermind, before he conquers the galaxy.
When Carter hires Beth O’Shea, a vulnerable but courageous woman with connections to his past, their attraction is immediate and strong, but he knows getting involved with her is a bad idea. He’s her boss, and he has way too many classified projects to protect to risk letting someone get close.
Rejected by the progenitors who cloned her, Beth is determined to live a normal human life, beginning by getting an ordinary job with a security firm. But, from the start, she questions the extraordinary secrecy surrounding the organization. She can’t help but wonder about the tall, muscled, larger-than-life director who gave her a chance when she desperately needed one. Could he ever be romantically interested in a woman like her, in a clone?
When Beth is attacked, they both realize how short and tenuous life is, and their mutual attraction becomes too powerful to resist.As their relationship heats up, so does the urgency to capture Lamani before he can unleash a stealth weapon at a critical planetary Summit meeting. With time running out, Carter discovers that stopping Lamani may require sacrificing Beth’s life.
Will Carter be able to rescue her, or will his new love be the one person he can’t save? FIVE BOUNDLESS STARS Hunted by the Cyborg is the perfect blend of suspense, romance and action all rolled up into an incredibly entertaining novel. One that I voluntarily received a copy of in exchange for an honest review.
Carter, who we’ve met in other books, is that character who I couldn’t wait to read about because I just knew it was going to be phenomenal. Bristol didn’t disappoint me in the least. Beth also met all my expectations of a leading lady. She was smart, courageous and could match wits with Carter. No damsel in distress here. I loved that about her. The story built in a way that there is this underlying edge of suspense that I was just waiting for the other shoe to drop. When it does, it’s a whopper!
I am not going to give anything away, but I loved every minute of this novel. I am giving it 5 Boundless stars; it’s awesome!
