Machines aren't supposed to feel, but this cyborg can't help falling in love with the enemy. A human.
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 and lust aren'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.
C791 by Eve Langlais is the first book in her Cyborgs: More Than Machines series. I want to start off by saying I couldn’t help myself after writing this review to check out what others thought and compulsively went to the one star reviews – just for fun. I realized I should point something out. #1 – I curse A LOT. Like of sailor proportions. #2 – I like sex in my romance. A LOT. Now with those two thoughts in mind I FUCKING LOVED THIS BOOK.
I didn’t know what to expect exactly (OK so I totally envisioned Terminator) when I started and was automatically swept into the story. Even though we didn’t learn a lot about the world that takes place it is made clear it was very different from modern day. Langlais takes us on a fun and sexy ride beyond any preconceptions I had about the cyborgs. Especially when talking about their emotions or lack thereof. The chemistry between the two lead characters was completely entertaining and flowed great through the book.
The humor contained in C791 is right up my ally and I found myself LOLing more than once. With high chemistry and many twists and turns, C791 is certainly getting an endorsement from this reader and 1-click buy for book #2 F814!
I rate C791 4.5 out of 5 Bullets!
I was given this book as a gift at the Indie Romance Convention 2014. All opinions are my own and were not influenced in any way.
