If your looking for something a little deeper with more of a plot and character development then you should chuck the brakes on now and make a u-turn back to the bookshelves...this one is not for you.
I give the sex a 4+ and the story a 2 and that's left me with a 3-star rating.
I was so disappointed with some inconsistencies in the story, like this... Tyler (Brianna's person bodyguard with benefits *wink* *wink*) takes her to the restaurant she requested and is suspicious as to why (he knows something is up but goes anyway - 'cause that's what the words on the pages say! lol)... Brianna looks around so agitated for 5 minutes ... then after a secret signal (aka some chic points to the toilets - very secret!) from across the room from the woman who only the day before gave her death-dagger looks, and with all the subtlety of a drunk heading to happy-hour, Brianna announces she has to go to the ladies ... at the same time Brianna fiancés Ex-shag makes a bee-line for the loos.... HELLO!!! WARNING - Bitchy confrontation approaching!!! But no - Tyler never notices this because he is too busy looking out for a stalker .... ummm? what do you think this chick is??? a girl scout???
I was also put off by the fact that Brianna was a screamer... yep... she'd hit the high notes every time she hit the Big-O like an opera soprano, which was, as the story goes, quite often. I hope there was a good health plan for the poor house staff who were bound to suffer from industrial deafness.
At one point Brianna is whining on about being "oh so concerned" about her brother who was blind and partially hearing-impaired, then the minute she gets him under the same roof she poops across the hall to have another shag ... um ... he's blind but NOT completely deaf. If she was SO concerned how does she think he would feel hearing his sister howl like a cat on heat.
There were other scenes like this but I think I'll stop here as this is all the time and effort this book deserves from me.

It's easy to understand, then, why I was drawn to this one. “What's this? A sexy Lycra clad vixen with enough metal weaponry in her arms and legs to start a war?”. I read the back cover and was even more enticed: Agent Lila Black, half human-half robot, all attitude!
This was a cross between between Lord of the Rings, Buffy & Firefly.
Yes, it's worth putting down the Wii controller for this one folks!!! Even if your not a big Sci-fi fan this one is worth giving a try because it's on the light side with the twist of other mythical creatures such as elves, demons, ghosts, and elementals mixing due to a Quantum bomb in 2015 that opened a connection to these dimensions.
Lila, a once-beautiful Spy who after nearly dying at the hands of a Elf torturer and had over half her body replaced by machine is assigned to protect an sinful sexy Elf rock-star Zal who has a few hidden surprises of his own (where can I get one of these horny little demons I say - lol!). The sexual tension between Elf rocker Zal and his "robot girl" Lila will guarantee to raise your pulse rate too. Their "game" of love was one of my favorite elements to this book.
There are some great one-liners references to current sayings / books / tv shows and music which give this a contemporary feel as well. I do recommend you read the books in order (there are now 4 in the series).
It was that good, I've dashed to the kitchen for a long tall drink and rushed back to the chair with the second in the series "Selling out"...it's gonna be another late night! Off on a mission to hell now. You go girl!!!!...more
