Why This One: Someone mentioned at All About Romance that the hero is a socially awkward, pining, virgin Cyborg. You have my attention!
I’m a day late and also have to be a dollar short, since I’m drowning in review books. In brief, this was a very enjoyable science fiction frenemies-to-lovers story. Admiral Branden Kel-Paten is a cybernetically altered human; he’s not supposed to be able to have emotions — and would be in deep shit if anyone discovered he’s madly in love with Captain Tasha “Sass” Sebastian. Nonetheless, he insists that she serve under him — heh — but somehow in every encounter he antagonizes her. Tasha is a great tough, wisecracking, competent heroine, who eventually learns to see the protective, passionate man behind Kel-Paten’s emotionless exterior. The plot is a complicated, Star Trekian alien encounter, with some powerful twists. Great read, 4 stars. You can buy it here.
