Product Description

Product Description

Ten years ago Penelope Isabella Aaron had been a pain in Brock Mann’s you-know-what. Much has changed in a decade: “PIA” as he code-named her, has grown up and is about to attend her first Alliance of Planets summit conference, and Brock has been transformed into a cyborg after a near-fatal attack. Now a secret agent with Cyber Operations, a covert paramilitary organization, Brock gets called in, not when the going gets tough, but when the going gets impossible. So when he’s unexpectedly assigned to escort Penelope to the summit meeting, he balks at babysitting a prissy ambassador. But after a terrorist bombing, a crash landing on a hostile planet, and a growing attraction to his protectee, Operation: PIA may become his most impossible assignment yet.

This book was recommended by one of my favorite authors, Anna Hackett on her Facebook page this week. I picked it up as my book for the day and read it in my commute to and from work. I love it! It was action-packed from beginning to end. This was sort of a second-chance romance. Brock was a security detail to 16 year old Penelope many years ago when she earned her monicker, Pia which to him meant pain in the ass. It was also her initials. She got him into trouble back then but her mother being the president knew of her daughter's antics and exonerated him of Pia's false charges. Brock moved on to another agency and nearly lost his life. His only chance of survival was to become a cyborg. Fate had plans for both Penelope and Brock after 10 years when they met again and she was all grown up now and was newly appointed ambassador. She had regretted the things she said and did to him way back then and she was given the chance to make it up to him when once again, he became her security detail. Pia's life was in danger as she was identified as a target of a terrorist group. Someone needed to protect her on the most important mission of her life and who better protect her than a cyborg? I love second chance romances! Pia's character is smart and sassy and passionate. Brock is all alpha male with a heart. This is my kind of sci-fi romance.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stranded With the Cyborg - What a thrilling ride! 22 September 2015
By Merry - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
*** 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.

3.0 out of 5 stars Cute book 8 February 2016
By dustbunny - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Take a young woman finding her place in the universe and a former shunned solider turned Cyborg and what do you get? Stranded w 6 January 2016
By TSRBR - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
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!

3.0 out of 5 stars Cyborg men are awesome. 18 January 2016
By Deanna's World - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
I want to start off this review on a positive note, so I'm saying upfront this was an entertaining read, the writing was good and I like sci-fi romance. I tend not to delve too deeply into the science part of the sci-fi because I allow for the impossible and the suspension of my disbelief, after all I'm a mad keen Marvel fan and I love all the superhero movies and TV shows.

I love the idea Brock is man and machine, a cyborg. I would love to have his enhancements and have a wireless computer in my brain I could use to connect to anything, anytime. Very, very handy. And that database in his brain? Can I please have Wikipedia in mine? Better yet, how about the entire internet and a Google search engine without having to type and I can just think it? My heart ached for Brock, for his isolation and his loneliness, for him thinking he was unlovable because he was a cyborg instead of a full human. I'm thinking being a cyborg makes him extra special.

Pia on the other hand lives up to her codename: Pain in the ass. Seriously! She was annoying right from the get go and I have a special dislike for people like her, be they male or female. Instead of me ranting about her, I'll just let my status updates as I read speak for themselves.

15.0% "Should have known from the blurb that Pia would be a brat. I hate brats. Irresponsible. Selfish. Bratty. They have nothing to recommend them."
30.0% "So she's less of a brat now but I still haven't found anything to like about her."
52.0% "Way to finally realise the stupid!!"
69.0% "I don't hate her anymore."
72.0% "Well, there goes the little bit of like I had built up."
74.0% "Pfft! Stupid girl."
88.0% "Yep, that's right. Naive and stupid. Behaving like a rebellious teenager. I'm quoting here'"
95.0% "Sheesh! After all that, that was just a little too easy."

If you don't have a special dislike for heroines like Pia, you will probably like this book a lot more than I did, but even then, as I said upfront, it was entertaining. Ms Bristol didn't make their ordeal too easy to overcome and she threw in an interesting twist of what Urgak, the bad guy was. I did, however, take exception to how easy the relationship part of the story was resolved. That was a little too pat and a little too easy. Maybe she hit her word count and needed to resolve the story quickly, since this was not a particularly long story. I don't know. I just felt that Pia, for all the hurt she caused Brock, got an easy out.

One other thing which jumped out at me, and it's something I tend to notice, I don't know if others will, is Ms Bristol did not address the safe sex / protection / birth control issue. I don't know what it's like in the future, if they have managed to cure all disease and no longer have STDs and have some kind of universal prevention of pregnancy thing all women or men are inoculated with, but I totally noticed it. This is kind of a big deal for me, it's not a deal breaker, but I always notice it and it throws me out of the story a little while I'm reading when it's not there. I do understand when it's not necessary, like in a historical, or in most paranormals, though even for paranormals, if it's set in contemporary times, there tends to be a small mention of it.

I think this is the start of a series for Ms Bristol, and if the heroines are less like Pia in the other books, I am interested in reading more.

5.0 out of 5 stars A sexy cyborg on a mission... 22 September 2015
By Lisa Medley - Published on

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!
