Publisher's Summary

After barely surviving a horrific accident, then being held captive for years by Earth Government, Venice must escape the planet. She thinks she's found the answer to her prayers when she contracts to be a deep-space bride - only to find herself facing an even bigger nightmare. Hiding from her con man "husband" aboard his space station, she comes across an intimidating cyborg...one who could just be her last hope.

Deviant is humiliated when his father suggests he visit a pleasure center to make use of a sex bot. True, the defects he was born with have assured female cyborgs will never consider adding him to a family unit. But he still has his pride. The woman who enters the room, however, is incredibly lifelike, and she quickly has Deviant feeling things he'd never dreamed - right until the moment he finds out she's human. Sort of...

Venice needs Deviant's help to get off the space station. Deviant is lonely, and in need of someone to teach him how to pleasure a female. They strike a bargain, one that has Venice giving up her freedom. But soon it's her heart that's at greater risk. It's easy loving Deviant...even when others are determined to make it difficult.

Another Good Installment To The Series

Really enjoyed this story about Deviant. Another good one for the cyborgs. You can read this one on its own but it will be so much better if you have read the others in this series. They are all good so grab a few and read away. In Deviant's book his father wants to help out and takes Deviant to learn how to please a women. In their society men"y view Deviant as not being "perfect" enough he has little hope of joining in a "family unit" but lucky for him a human woman needs his help and offers to be his if he will rescue her. She sees nothing wrong with him and counts herself lucky to have him. Of course there are those in cyborg society that hate humans and can't forgive what some humans did to the cyborgs years ago. So Deviant and Venice must find a way to stay together. A really good book. I can't wait for the next book in the series.

Mindy Kennedy was outstanding with the delivery of the story

One of the lighter, but satisfying reads in the series

Both very likeable characters in one of the more satisfying reads in Dohner's Cyborg series. Kennedy does a decent but in no way inspired narration. My personal opinion is that the stories in the series have become progressively better. My least favorite female was in book1. Apart from some moments of dark humor in the beginning, that heroine was TSTL and a big turnoff. Those characters were not believable in the context of the world Dohner built. Too bad Dohner hasn't given us the snapshots into the lives of previous characters which give the satisfaction of HEA, & link the series tighter together. There would be more value to the books & series than any minor negative implication that the book isn't completely "stand-alone".

TOE CURLING HOTNESS AS USUAL

I barely read the reviews or book details of Laurann Dohner books before I get them because it's a given that you're in for a smoking hot paranormal love story with heroes and heroines you're guaranteed to root for. Deviant is considered 'damaged' by his kind and his self esteem is the lowest of low until he meets Venice who helps him learn how to please a woman in exchange for her safety from various threats. Romance quickly ensues and its yet another winner from Laurann Dohner.

I just love this series!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Deviant, who doesn't love a strong man who's sweet and caring as well.

Have you listened to any of Mindy Kennedy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

This is my first book narrated by Mindy so I can't compare it, but the narration was excellent. I got so caught up in it that I forgot it's one person doing multiple voices.

Any additional comments?

Laurann Dohner is one of my favorite authors, I love it when I listen to a new book of hers, and this one does not disappoint.<br/><br/>If you're new to Laurann Dohner or this series then it's important to know that later book have spoilers for earlier books, so it' best to listen to them in order. You also get info on the world set-up in early books and it's assumed that you know this in later books.<br/><br/>The developing relationship between Venice and Deviant is lovely to listen to. If you've made it this far in the series it's safe to say you'll love this one too.

I liked it.

This was a pretty good book. Their was some world building, that helps you get into the story. I didn't know this book was not the first in series and I don't think I missed much or was lost about what was going on.
I liked all the characters even his mean ass mother.
The a narration was good and didn't take away for the story. Overall, a Good sci-fi romance.

Excellent story. ..A Must Read for Cyborg Fans

Loved this book. Venice remains optimistic, strong and resourceful no matter how awful things become. She needs help and gets it from an amazing male, that happens to be a cyborg. Lots of intriguing twists and turns. Hot steamy sex and wonderful HEA.
