He wants Mira Breazeal, the Designer’s daughter.
She’s his one temptation, his sexy target. Vapor shouldn’t crave her caresses, steal her kisses, make her scream with ecstasy. The cyborgs want her dead and they would question his loyalty if he didn’t kill her. The humans would shoot him on sight if he dared to touch her.
Their love is forbidden. Their desire could be lethal. One human and one cyborg will risk everything for a moment of passion.
Mira the Merciless is the name they whisper when she walks by but Mira is not exactly the piece of ice the world perceives. No, she has closed herself off, shut down her feelings, and all so she can put right the terrible wrongs her own father, the Designer, allows to happen. Yet Vapor is about to threaten not just her life but everything she has worked for; and Mira may not care if she lives or dies but her mission is worth everything. Problem is, Vapor is everything Mira needs and the connection they share is undeniable but passion is not enough to a cyborg; honestly, loyalty and integrity mean so much more. So will Vapor complete his task and neutralise Mira?
I pick up a book by Ms Sax and I know I'm guaranteed a very hot read. I really liked that Breathing Vapor is set on a planet and not just in space as it opens up the world the author has created. We get to see the much bigger picture as action scenes pepper this book involving both the Humanoid Alliance and those who resist. I will point out here that Breathing Vapor has violent and dark scenes that are not pleasant. However, it was very obvious that poor Vapor was probably the last person/cyborg to take Mira out of the picture, as right from the start he is uber protective of her. Yes, he is one possessive and dare I say obsessed male? Mira might be attracted to the big lug but she is not one to open up easily and her years of playing a part are not easily cast aside. She is brave, much kinder than she appears, but in public sharper than diamonds. I thought Ms Sax did a remarkable job of showing just how deep and at times fragile Mira really was.
If I have any niggles it's just that I'm not a huge fan of spanking and there is a lot of that in this story but that's just a personal thing and I'm sure other readers will enjoy the slightly more heated scenes. Bottom line (pun intended) for me is this erotic story has left me wanting to find out just what happens next and just how far the the author's imagination is prepared to go on this journey with her very sexy cyborgs
