Wiping out humanity is his number one objective—until he meets her.
Aramus has no patience or sympathy for the excuses humanity uses to hunt cyborgs down and eradicate them. He’s put up with too much at their hands to ever forgive and forget. But all that changes when he rescues a fragile human doctor who refuses to see him as a machine. She teaches him that perhaps not all emotions are a weakness and that love can make even a cynical cyborg like him stronger.
And for those who’d mock his change of view or threaten his female? Go ahead. His iron knuckles could use some exercise.
I was excited to be back in the world of the cyborgs. We have Aramus, who is yet another cyborg male who dislikes the weakness of human emotions. He really hates humans. The cyborgs are sent to investigate a secret base only to find some truly horrible things. And the humans thing the cyborgs are heartless. There are a group of humans who are being held captive as they help with scientific research. They also find Avion who has been MIA for a while, but he is not what he used to be.
You knew it was going to happen. As I was reading these books, Aramus’s hatred towards humans, I knew he was going to be the first of the cyborgs to hook up with a human. Up until this point, they have found women cyborgs, as rare as they are, but I just knew he was going to be teamed up with a human. It was fun to watch him fight his instincts as much as he liked her. The doctor’s response was even better.
MJ shrugged. “So you find her cute. I don’t see the problem.”
Was MJ truly dense? Aramus spelled it out for him. “The problem is I desire her.”
“Easy solution then; screw her.”
“Screw her? That’s your remedy? Screw her?”
“Well, you said that masterbating didn’t work.”
“So, do what your body wants and get back to normal. Have sex.”
“But I don’t want to have sex with her.” He was such a liar.
“Buy you just said–”
“I know what I fucking said. However, I don’t want to. I hate humans.”
“Not that one.”
“All of them.”
After more arguing:
“No. As your chief medical officer, I command you to obey. Fuck the human.”
Have you ever seen a man that needed so much convincing to have sex with a woman he found attractive?
Anyway, it was another cute story. There is betrayal (not by either of our main players here, but by someone else). We learn more about Seth who went MIA in the previous book. There were the great one-liners I’ve come to expect from an Eve Langlais book. If you’re looking for a cute, fun, laugh out loud read, I highly recommend anything by Eve Langlais. Her books are always great for a laugh.
