Author – N. Isabelle Blanco
Publication Date – April, 2014
Type – Part of Series
Genre – Romance, Sci-Fi
Rating – 4 out of 5 Stars

Complimentary Copy provided by Author in exchange for an honest review.

To be honest, when Ms. Blanco approached me to read and review this book, I was a bit hesitant because this is definitely out of my normal genre, but while reading I was instantly reminded of ‘The Hyde’ series and that was all it took – I was hooke

Great start to a series and I'm looking forward to the next one. This did end with a cliffy, so if you're a cliffhanger hater then you may want to wait for the entire series to come out.

This little novella was exactly what I needed right now. I feel like I've been in a book funk and I needed craved something different! I craved action, attraction and angst. I craved a kick ass

While this story caught me off guard a little to begin with it left me wanting more by the last chapter. Even from a young age I read at a more advanced level then most so reading with a dictionary close by was understandable. I did have to look up a few of the terms, not for lack of explanation but just to help me understand it better. The characters are well built and you connect with them, the author allows you into the head of the main male character while I would have liked to have had a gl ...more

Sweet Baby Jeebus! Okay so when I first read the synopsis for the this story I thought to myself “hmmn...this is different, maybe it will be interesting”. Being that I had reached the point where I read myself into a Contemporary Romance coma, I was looking for something to spice up my typical reading line up and a Sci-Fi erotica was so outside my normal genre that I thought hell, why not! And HOLY MACKERAL, I TOTALLY MADE THE RIGHT CHOICE! Who knew that a guy with bionic parts could be so damn ...more

I know normally anything with the hint of Syfy I always want to run the other way running, but this author knew how to keep me hooked and keep me reading the wonderful story that was being unfolded right before my eyes. The story is a 1 person POV but you do get to hear from another person but not like Deimos the main character. The characters are all these strong independent characters that I knew I really was going to like Maxwell "Deimos", the name is just really hott and the scenes that he d ...more

Review forthcoming on http://a-reader-lives-a-thousand-live...

I received a copy of The Exchange Part 1 in exchange for my review.

The world doesn't realise that bionic technology is so advanced, and though he has bionic arms, nor does Deimos, whose real name is Maxwell. His most recent mission is to escort Magdalena Heaton to her father, after she died in a car crash and her memories were reuploaded to her body with the world's first AI. But Maxwell catches on pretty quickly, whoever is in that b

If you love Sci Fi this is definitely one for you to pick up. The Exchange is a fresh new look to the world of Sci Fi, I picked this one because it seemed very unique based off of the sypnosis and I will say I liked it from the start to the finish. I have read other books in this genre but they did not have the mixture that this treasure did. You meet Dermos who is freaking hot and sent on a mission to bring a package to a wealthy man. But little does he know that the package has been well alter ...more

I'm addicted to being inside a man's head when it comes to romance or utter sexiness. It's something that always turn my lights on.

First reviewed on Literaria

We have this special agent who's as tough as they come. He's deadly, focused, mission-bent. All that changes when he meets HER. H'es in charge of a covert operation to deliver a girl back to her rich and powerful father, but she's no ordinary girl. She's been dead.

This is my first time of reading this author and I must say, I enjoyed her writing style. This story is told from the POV of Deimos who is an agent for the Adelphi Organisation. His assignment is to transport 'cargo' - Ms Heaton from Japan to the United Kingdom. His job is to protect and deliver and he is supposed to be very good at it.

Until he meets his assignment, the resurrected dead daughter of a very powerful man turned into a bionic woman. But it turns out Ms Heaton isn't really Ms Heaton

I am giving The Exchange Part 1 4 stars because of the sexual romance in the story. At first, I didn’t think I would be able to handle this story. I thought it would be about some complex and foreign terms that I wouldn’t remember or understand. Once it got started though, I couldn’t put it down. I finished it one sitting. It was a quick read. Hot and steamy to keep you interested.

This is a story about a billionaire's daughter, Magdalena. She is fatally wounded in a car crash, but instead of letting his little girl go, Lei Heaton decides to have her repaired by allowing doctors to alter her wounded body with bionics. Deimos - a prominent military team leader - is assigned to safely transport her from the bionics lab back to her father's house. Not only is her body completely remade, her mind is as well. The consciousness of Magdalena is still there, but the software that ...more

3 out of 5 stars
If you are looking for a unique and futuristic love story then this one is for you. The story of Deimos and Sapphire is an age old tale centered in a world full of technological advances that we could only dream of. Settle in to your pool chair or your comfy end of the couch and get ready for a quick read, guaranteed to leave you anxious for more!
I like the concept behind this book. The idea of bionic body replacement parts is nothing

I struggled with this read in the beginning but the synopsis grabbed me so I decided to start again and boy am I glad I did! Mad scientists comes to mind as does a desperate and heart broken father but The Exchange is so much more!

MAXWELL~ "Dermos" our man with bionic arms and a killer instinct to match ! I must just add he's a delicious bionicMAN Despite the fact that he's a killer he dies have a heart and his protective instincts kick in when he realuses Sapphire is in danger.

I enjoyed the plot of a girl who loses her life and is implanted with an artificial intelligence. We see that it isn't Magdalena the girl who lost her life it is in fact the AI Sapphire. The Adelphi Organization is called in to pick up Magdalena to deliver her to her father Lei. Deimos is in charge of protecting her however everything is not as it seems. I liked Deimos and his nobility but I kind of got tired of his endless diatribe of what ifs. He doesn't really take the full step in being with ...more

I am truly in awe of this book right now. This is an erotic scifi with so much sexual tension its suffocating. I had the opportunity to read an excerpt of this book and knew it was going to be HOT and amazing. The Exchange is by no means a frilly no-brainer, it has enough technology and advanced programming as well as biotechnology to make it a very interesting read.
The story is mainly focused on Sapphire, developed in a computer and mixed in with a dead girl's memories and body. Then yo

In a top secret government project, bionics have become a thing of the present. They have a team that no one is supposed to know about, that takes all of the riskiest, most dangerous, and elite jobs. That's where the Adelphi Organization comes in.

Lei Heaton is one of the richest and most powerful men of the United States. So when his daughter is in a severe car accident, he turns to the most advanced bionics there is, the Sapphire Project. The only problem is, he doesn't know anything about b

I love N. ISABELLE BLANCO’s writing! She is one of the very few authors I’d read anything from – even without knowing the blurb. …otherwise I never would have picked up THE EXCHANGE PART I. I think it’s the first book with a touch of Sci-Fi I’ve ever read. One, Sci-Fi never was one of my favorite topics at all and second, with English not being my mother language I was not sure if I would understand everything good enough to keep track. So, yes, I had to look up a few terms, but altogether I am ...more

Oh my goodness. Im not one for the sci-fi type story, but I promised N. Isabelle I would give it a try. I can tell you without a doubt its an awesome read. Maxwell aka Deimos is a man like no other ( he's part bionic) he has a way about him that draws you in from the start and keeps you wanting more from him. Sapphire is something not of this world, but she captures you from her 'shyness' to her fury. Combining these two is promising of something out of this world. Im really looking forward to r ...more

Futuristically SHMEXY!
Who knew that biometrics was hot?! I didn't until I read the exchange. Alpha men fighting instincts while lust and attractions win over. The intense feeling to protect and claim are felling and emotions that Deimos is not accustomed to having, but one look at Saphire and he was hooked!
I liked the futuristic feel of the story line it was exciting. It also gave sexy a new look!
