Charlie’s brother has put her in the no-win situation of having to rescue a cyborg from Earth Government. It’s dangerous, she’ll become an outlaw on Earth, but it’s the only way to save her brother’s life. The imprisoned cyborg is rude, conceited and probably the biggest jerk she’s ever had the misfortune to meet. His only redeeming qualities are his handsome face and sexy, muscular body. Just wow! Still, she can’t wait to be rid of him. All cyborgs hate humans, but Zorus is consumed by it. Chained, enslaved and facing death on Earth once again, he vows revenge. To his utter astonishment, a human female comes to his rescue. She’s rude, mouthy and bossy. And very brave. She baffles him almost as much as she arouses him. Zorus cannot deny that he’s fascinated by her. They are about to lock wills and ignite a firestorm of desire that defies every rule he lives by.
It has been so long since I read a romance book where a main character was redeemed. Actually I can’t really remember any besides books featuring manwhores?
And none of them were really bad guys.
Charlie is sick of her brother always getting them on trouble. Her brother doesn’t care what happens to her as long as money is involved and he doesn’t need to put himself on danger. This time Russell promised on behalf of Charlie that she was going to save a cyborg, making her loose everything she’s worked for.
Zorus wasn’t a likeable character in earlier books. That’s put it lightly since he’s one of the bad guys. He really hates humans and doesn’t see any redeeming qualities in them until he meets Charlie. I liked his redemption ARC and he became one of my favorite characters in this series during this book. There were some parts that couldn’t be explained by just explaining his past but I like that he isn’t perfect even after getting redeemed.
The romance is insta love, yes but it’s not too quick. Zorus needs to learn to trust Charlie first and she has to get to know him a bit better under his whole assholeness.
All in all another great read from this series! I think I enjoyed this one even more knowing Zorus’ feelings towards humans but he still did everything he could to keep Charlie safe. This book’s “bad guy” is one that I didn’t see coming until it happened and he was even worse than Zorus in my opinion.
