This is the first story in the spin off from Cynthia Sax's cyborg series following the cyborg crew of the Reckless and if you have read her cyborg sizzle series then you will know these characters however it is not necessary to have read these to get right into these characters. Chuckles is the most grim of the Reckless crew and rarely (if ever) smiles and as the odds of finding a cyborg mate is considered like winning the lottery Chuckles never expects to find his mate, particularly as he still holds onto the trauma of being under human control and torture. When the Reckless receives a distress signal from Bettina/Bait it is clear she is lying but it is also clear that she is the one person that Chuckles can mate with so he heads off into the trap to retrieve his mate. This sets off a chain of events of adventure as Chuckles and Bettina learn all about each other and try and figure out how they can be together. As with all of Cynthia Sax stories this is heavy on the sexual content however I also think this author is really experienced in sucking me into the characters and the action that there is a real story that is being developed here, one that adds to the cyborg storyline but also builds this new spin off to the Reckless crew. Now in this story there are heavy themes of submission and spanking which is not my cup of tea but honestly I think that attests to Cynthia Sax's skill in that I think was built in the story to align with these characters so it didn't bother me in reading it. Although warning to those that are sensitive to such themes or don't like heavy sexual content, do not get this book!
