There is no one left for Mila to trust. Except for a boy she barely knows.

But Hunter has no idea who—and what—Mila really is. She can’t bear to reveal her secret, even though he’s unwittingly joined her search for Richard Grady, a man who may know more details of Mila’s complicated past.

Yet the road to the truth is more dangerous than ever. With General Holland and the Vit

Wow. I can’t believe it’s almost time for the second book in the MILA 2.0 series to be released out into the wild!

Just so you know—this book tried to kill me. I can say that somewhat jokingly now, but honestly, writing RENEGADE was an incredibly difficult task. Not just because writing a sequel is oh-my-gosh hard (though it absolutely is), but because I worked on this story during one of the most challenging times in my life. What I’m coming to realize, though, is that challenges aren’t necessar

Well the intrigue definitely ramps up in this book!

This book felt a bit more drawn out as Mila tries to get answers about her past and find people who might help her. I found it frustrating that Hunter was still kept in the dark and I didn't care for the romance. Honestly, her mum got killed, people are hunting her down to turn her into a military style weapon or terminate her! The only thing I'd want from Hunter is that he was more useful i.e smarter and trained in fighting, not canood

I didn't dislike this, but I didn't like it as much as the first book. It continues the story well, but I was annoyed with the constant lack of communication and assumptions that the majority of the book was built on. The last bit was good. I really liked the message about emotions. (I'm always a fan of books that explore humanity in this way.) If you've ever wished you could turn off your emotions because they are too painful, this book explores that. ...more

Wow. Wow. Wow. This was amazing.

Lots of twists and turns, action, swoons, laughs....this book had it all. It's pretty much fast paced from the beginning and doesn't let you go until the last page. And be prepared, there's one hell of an ending.

I cannot wait to see what happens in the last book. I need it right now. Right now. RIGHT. NOW.

This book has been released recently but, sadly, I have not had the chance to read it yet. This review is more of a reaction to the first book which I posted here a while back. Feel free to look at this review anyway if you'd like to see my thoughts on Mila 2.0. I will be reviewing the book here when I finally get around to it.

When I finished Mila 2.0 last year I was left quite eager to get my hands on the novel's sequel. Mila 2.0 was action packed from beginning to end and quite possibly the most fun I had reading a book in 2013. Upon finishing Renegade I am left wondering "what the hell happened?" Where was the action and fun that I loved so dearly in the first book? It must have gotten lost somewhere because this book was a nearly 500 page yawnfest with 3-4 action scenes max.

Renegade is just as captivating as its predecessor! I was afraid there would be some middle-book syndrome in here, but there most definitely isn't. It's been a while since my last 5-star read, and I'm glad Renegade got me back on track.

Mila is on the run with Hunter, desperately trying to find Richard Grady, the man her mother told her to find in her dying breath. Hunter doesn't know anything about who Mila really is, and she intends to keep it that way. But whe
Initial Thoughts: This was a fun "Bio-Daddy Road Trip" story as Mila and Hunter are forced to run from Holland's goons and at the same time, evade the Vita Obscura. This installment is action-packed, full of chase scenes and some crazy technology. Mila shines in this book, learning more about her android abilities yet struggling with her human emotions. Nicely done.

Aug 24, 2017 rated it it was amazing
This was as enjoyable as the first one. It’s got to be one of the most suspenseful, thrilling-est series I’ve encountered. At every step, you’re afraid of getting caught, and you don’t know who to trust. It’s fast-paced with great characters. So suspenseful! Even though there’s a little romance, it didn’t bother me at all.

The editing is done well on this one, too. There is some rare strong language. No sexual content, and violence is not too graphic.

I really liked the whole concept and idea behind MILA, an android girl with real human emotions and memories that can't be explained and even though I didn't totally fall in love with the book, I liked it enough to know that I wanted to continue on with the series.

I had so many questions about V.O. that I needed answered, not to mention about Hunter. Was he good, was he bad?> Was he everything he appeared to be?

Yep, lots of questions and I was really hoping I would get a lot of them, if not all

Until she falls off the back of a pickup truck in book one of this series, leaking some kind of machine fluid instead of bleeding, Mila has no idea that the gaps in her memory and the overprotective tendencies of her mother are clues to her real nature. Which is android--and when she finds out she is just as horrified as she thinks everyone else will be. As this second book opens Mila has escaped from the military facility that wants to use her as a weapon, the place where she was tortured and f ...more

As seen on The Quiet Concert

I really enjoyed Mila 2.0 because of the nonstop action and because of the internal struggle Mila had over finding out she was an android, neither of which are present in this latest installment. This sequel was a total snoozefest. And for a 448 page book, that is a lot of snooze. Talk about middle-book-syndrome.

The first 300 pages are pretty much uneventful and full of annoying thoughts circulating around Hunter. If you had a problem with the “relationship” in the f

While the love interest between these two was very sweet and acted as a great counter balance for the wild plot twists and action of the first read; the continuation of said romance in the second novel caused MILA to spend an inordinate amount of time gushing about the effect of his smile on her heart rate and such, instead of doing her badass a

Mila 2.0 Renegade is a weird book.

I decided to continue on with the series after a less than stellar start because, in my experience, sequels sometimes improve. Sadly, this wasn't the case. Romance plot tumor strikes again.

I didn't buy into Hunter and Mila's relationship in the first book and this did nothing to sway me. 95% of the book is spent with the author and Mila trying to convince us that Hunter is more important then he really is. I get it, Hunter is supposed to be the emotional center

Mila 2.0 Renegade basically starts off right where Mila 2.0 ended, Mila and Hunter are on the move looking for the two people Mila's mother spoke of in her last breath. As they advance on their "road trip" both of them face obstacles and harsh realities. Piece by piece Mila has to tell Hunter the truth and uncovers deep secrets.

Poor Mila. Will she ever catch a break? In the debut she had her life turned upside down. Her perspective and outlook on everything she thought she knew was forced to change. She experienced devastating loss, the sting of betrayal, and was left with a lot of doubts and confusion. Unfortunately, her life doesn't improve much in the sequel.

In Renegade, Mila is on the run. She's unsure of who she can turn to for answers and feeling like no one can be trusted. Desperate for inf

Review originally posted on my blog: A Book Obsession..

Poor Mila. She's going through so much and seeing her try to cope with everything that's happened was utterly heartbreaking at times. Just her inner struggle with her emotions and humanity with the android parts of her were hard enough. Then you add in the grief from the loss of her mother, and her not knowing who to trust leaving her feeling isolated and alone. Sure she was travelling with Hunter, but as she had to hide so much from him and

But this book was SSSOOO GOOD! The story was 500% engaging and all the plot points moved the story at such a good quick pace. There was not a single scene in this book that I felt was unnecessarily thrown in, and I felt like all the little emotional scenes between Hunter and Mila set the mood for the story quite well.

3.5 stars. Besides a few annoying comments made by a couple of members of a rogue organization who believe it's ok to steal tech from the rich, I liked Renegade. It was a good second book in the trilogy. Mila is still a very interesting character. I liked her internal conflicts. I would have liked more information on what happened to a couple of people. There were a lot of unanswered questions at the end of the book, but I'm sure they will all get answered when the third book comes out. (view sp ...more

Can i just type book 2 syndrome and move on?! Ugh.

For starters, Hunter... You need to use your brain hunny. You have a picture of her and her dad and when you question her, she doesn't even answer, and YET YOU ACCEPT IT AND NEVER BRING IT BACK UP. Dumb. You're pretty but dumb. Sorry.

Mila. You're a freaking android that can still feel feelings, idk how many freaking times this needs to be brought up but damn, stop freaking out.
