C791 (Cyborgs: More Than Machines, #1)C791 by Eve Langlais

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Overall Rating 4.25
Story Rating 4.00
Character Rating 4.50
Smexy Rating 4.25

Quick Review: This was a smexy one night read that I pretty much devoured. It hit the spot for my scifi romance craving. I haven’t read Eve Langlais before but I will be again (F814 is already on my kindle). The story was really well paced and interesting. I really liked the Cyborgs being the “good” guys and learning how they got free from their creator. I think as the series goes on we will learn more about the individual cyborgs but I love the ones we have met so far. The characters were all very layered even though they each had “emotional” limitations. For each of the male characters we met that played out in different ways. The reason I can’t wait for F814 is for Solus to fall and fall hard. The smexy between Joe and Chloe was sizzling. I felt their connection immediately and loved how their story played out. I will say that Chloe’s story broke my heart and it was hard to read at times. There is violence against her that some people will find distracting. I think it was a great story arch but it should be noted.

Final Thought: If you like Science Fiction Romance with a Smexy edge I think you will like this book!

First thought when finished: (Let me steal a line from the book) “Zombie Super Powers, activate, you fucking bitches” πŸ™‚

Quick Review: Diana Rowland hit it out of the park again with Even White Trash Zombies Get the Blues! I love how far Angel has come since book 1. She is one smart, tough cookie who is just beginning to understand just how many people she truly has in her corner! How her friends rally around her during the story was probably my favorite part! Plus, her fighting to better herself and her dad was so enduring. I loved how she acknowledged that he had a tougher road to clean than she had. I was disappointed with Marcus in this addition but can I just say that his uncle is a really interesting character who I hope shows up in the rest of the series. I know that he isn’t that likable but I can’t wait to see what he has up his sleeve. In other words, I need the 3rd book now and I don’t even think it is on the horizon yet. Though I heard a rumor that she got a 3 more books deal–I hope that is true!

Final Thoughts: If you loved the first one then this one will be a hit for you too! I mean how can it not with lines like this: “Yeah, well I ate his brain.” I leaned back and laced my fingers behind my head. “Motherfucker shot me. I couldn’t let that shit slide.”
