Review

"I found Stranded with the Cyborg to be very well-written which is a plus for me. I've never read Cara Bristol but would now read something else from her after reading this. She created a world that I really enjoyed.  Stranded with a Cyborg has everything you want in a futuristic story." - Romancing the Readers

*** I received a free copy of this book from the author in exchange for an honest review ***

Penelope Isabella Aaron (PIA...yeah, that too!) had crossed paths with Brock Mann 10 years earlier, and now regrets what she did to him. That doesn't mean she wants him as a bodyguard again, though. But when they're forced together in life-threatening circumstances, she gets to see him in a different light. Brock has suffered much in those 10 years, and initially views his latest "mission" with disdain. They're both in for some big surprises.

I love Science Fiction Romance and especially cyborg stories and, holy moly, does Stranded With the Cyborg deliver! It's short but ever so
heartwarmingly poignant...and very steamy. I truly felt connected to Pia and Brock because their anguish and hurt is so vividly realised and
relatable, which makes their HEA all the more awesome...and so deserving.

All of the elements I enjoy in Sci-Fi Romance and space opera are there: adventure-filled space travel, well-balanced and descriptive world building, political intrigue (no, actually I hate politics, but when it's set in outer space, it's enthralling!), engaging secondary characters whose actions help to propel the plot forward at high speed and, of course, a likeable kick-ass girl and a very sexy guy-turned-cyborg who's almost hot enough to melt his metal parts.

Stranded With the Cyborg is Book 1 in the Cy-Ops Sci-Fi Romance series, and the next book, and hopefully more, can't come soon enough for this Sci-Fi Romance aficionado. Definitely on my auto-buy list.

I almost didn't get this book after reading one of the reviews stating that the heroine, Penelope, was a real brat. I hate those types of characters. But, much to my surprise, she wasn't a brat at all. Yes, she had been one years before as a teenager, and had done something awful BUT when the book started she was an adult. As an adult she knew she had done an awful thing as a kid and had the grace to admit to it and apologize at just about the first opportunity. She didn't avoid it or deny it or even try to ignore it, the way a brat would. So I'm glad I read this book even though I thought I might not like the main character, she actually ended up being a lovely person who had made some mistakes but who had the grace to face them.

Overall Rating: 4.25 Rockin’ ★★★★

Take a young woman finding her place in the universe and a former shunned soldier turned Cyborg and what do you get? Stranded with the Cyborg! The first book in the Cy-Ops Sci-fi series, by Cara Bristol. This entertaining story is fast-paced and full of action from the beginning. The universe created by the author draws you in and continues to hold your attention to the last page. This is Brock and Penelope’s story of forgiveness and love.

Penelope grew up in politics, her mother served as President of the Alliance of Planets. She suffered her teenage years with a security detail. Brock was assigned to protect her until she lied about him. She knew it was wrong but wanted a reaction from him instead of the typical nod or short one word phrases. Since then she has excelled in her career and is now an ambassador at the first Alliance of Planets conference. When her mother confronts her to insist on a bodyguard, she takes off to the summit earlier than planned without her security detail.

Brock is a Cyborg. After a mission gone bad, he was recruited by Carter to join the Cy-Ops and his body became enhanced through different medical procedures. When Carter requests that Brock handle Penelope’s security for the summit, old feelings resurface. When he sees her again, there are feelings he doesn’t understand. He also knows that he is no longer a man, but is now a machine. Brock believes that he doesn’t deserve love or happiness, because he’s not human.

When the two once again connect, their chemistry sizzles and burns the pages as their story unfolds. There are several twists and turns you don’t expect. If you are looking for a new twist on science fiction romance try this book today!

A sexy cyborg on a mission? Sign me up! Brock Mann might be part machine now, but he's all male. When he's commissioned to protect a precocious interplanetary ambassador he's had run-ins with before, the mission quickly goes arwy. This book was fun and has a sexy surprise you'll have to read to believe!

Ten years may have passed, but Brock doesn't believe Pia has changed her childish ways.

Pia has devoted her life to making a name for herself without help from her mother. She wants to prove that she is more than a name, plus in some ways, make up for a disastrous decision she made when she was younger.

Now thrown together, they must work together to find a way to survive after an attack on Pia's life. But all their time together brings feeling to the surface that Brock feels he can't act on. He's not the man that Pia thinks he is and he believes he can't give her want she deserves.

But Pia's defiance is strong and pushes Brock to the limits until the truth about his upgrades is revealed. Now Pia must decide if Brock is still the man she believes him to be or a machine. But even is she wants him, no questions asked, does he want her?

I really enjoyed this story. It's a fast paced story about two people that first meet under usual circumstances, parted after a misguided decision, and thrust back together years later. Brock is the same man he used to be, but with certain improvements that makes him believe a normal live will never be within his grasps. Pia wants to be wanted by the one man that she's always wanted. Both have their issues, but I love that even though it may never last, they take the risk. If it's just for the day or for a lifetime, they need to express their feelings.

In the end, this story proves that sometimes you have to take a risk, no matter the consequences. And you just get the one thing your heart desires.

I can't wait to see what Cara will bring us next in this exciting new series.
