Amanda Mansfield has faced challenges in her life including the disapproval of her critical father and the near-fatal accident that ended a promising military career and resulted in her transformation to cyborg. Now a Cyber Operations field agent, she volunteers to lead the most dangerous Cy-Ops mission ever: infiltrating enemy territory to find the secret hideaway of a terrorist mastermind. The last thing she needs is an added complication.
Like him. Sonny Masters. Her partner. A streetwise former thug turned cyber operative with a lethal grin who doesn’t understand she’s in charge and does not require his protection. He’s everything she dislikes—and everything her body wants.
If they can keep their hands off each other long enough to complete the mission, they might just get out alive…
Trapped with the Cyborg (Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance 4) is a standalone read.
Well, luckily Amanda isn't exactly what I expected. Yes, she is tough but there's a vulnerability to her that sees her sometimes having poor judgement which is quite obviously human, insecurities and all. Pairing her up with the forceful Sonny worked very well. Technically Amanda is in charge as their mission is all her plan but I think someone forgot to tell Sonny that! Oh yes, big tough cyborg with protective urges and even a huge streak of jealousy. Yet as the story progressed and the couple dropped their barriers, they really learned to trust each other.
I won't go into too many details about the plot but will say if you have read any of these books you might well remember the people of Lamis-Odg and their terrorist leader. They are indeed as vile as I remembered with a mentality that simply beggars belief! In this harsh world, our two cyborgs find themselves pitched against prejudice, fanaticism and even their own limitations.
I truly enjoyed the action and danger they faced although at times their willingness to sacrifice themselves was pretty hard to take. If I have any complaint, it's the way this story ends. I felt a little cheated that after the couple faced so much together their rescue was told to the reader retrospectively. They do get a happy ending though so Ms Bristol is somewhat redeemed.
I was gifted a copy in exchange for an honest review.
