Half Man. Half Machine. All Hers.
Rage, the Humanoid Alliance’s most primitive cyborg, has two goals—kill all of the humans on his battle station and escape to the Homeland. The warrior has seen the darkness in others and in himself. He believes that’s all he’s been programmed to experience.
Until he meets Joan.
Joan, the battle station’s first female engineer, has one goal—survive long enough to help the big sexy cyborg plotting to kill her. Rage might not trust her but he wants her. She sees the passion in his eyes, the caring in his battle-worn hands, the gruff emotion in his voice.
When Joan survives the unthinkable, Rage’s priorities are tested. Is there enough room in this cyborg’s heart for both love and revenge?
This is a mess of a book with women hating, betrayal, rape (not by the hero) of all kinds. The world is ugly.
The heroine is kickass and a sexual submissive. Her submissive nature gets a bit silly as her real brave personality comes out really away from the hero. He falls in love with her unconditional love.
And yet even though many parts of this book made me uncomfortable in its brutality and lack of nuance, there are parts of that idea of loving someone for exactly who there are that made me willing to try another book in the series.
