This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.
Billionaire Carter Aymes, director of Cyber Operations, a covert cyborg force, devotes his wealth and life to saving others, rescuing hostages and other victims from desperate situations. His ultimate mission is to hunt down and eliminate Lamani, the alien terrorist mastermind, before he conquers the galaxy.
When Carter hires Beth O'Shea, a vulnerable but courageous woman with connections to his past, their attraction is immediate and strong, but he knows getting involved with her is a bad idea. He's her boss, and he has way too many classified projects to protect to risk letting someone get close.
Rejected by the progenitors who cloned her, Beth is determined to live a normal human life, beginning by getting an ordinary job with a security firm. But, from the start, she questions the extraordinary secrecy surrounding the organization. She can't help but wonder about the tall, muscled, larger-than-life director who gave her a chance when she desperately needed one. Could he ever be romantically interested in a woman like her, in a clone?
When Beth is attacked, they both realize how short and tenuous life is, and their mutual attraction becomes too powerful to resist.
As their relationship heats up, so does the urgency to capture Lamani before he can unleash a stealth weapon at a critical planetary Summit meeting. With time running out, Carter discovers that stopping Lamani may require sacrificing Beth's life.
Will Carter be able to rescue her, or will his new love be the one person he can't save?
I loved this book!!!
**Received ARC for a fair and honest review**
Hunted by the Cyborg is the 6th book in the Cy-Ops series. I'd rate this book at 4.5 stars. This book could be read as a standalone, the author gives enough information IMO, but I personally think that books in a series lose some importance by not knowing who some of the characters are that they discuss. I really enjoyed this book, there was an interesting twist that I wasn't expecting that I really enjoyed. I enjoyed the characters- Beth O'Shea at the beginning started out sort of meek and despondent after leaving her previous life behind. As the book progresses you do see her change, she becomes stronger, more vibrant, and more interactive. Carter Aymes is the head/owner of Aym-Sec, he's a cyborg, he's an alpha male, but he's not overly alpha to the point that it's annoying. The couple is interesting together, one question that stood out in my mind was, did he really like Beth for herself, or because of someone in his past-- I know that's kind of vague, however I don't want to give away any spoilers. I did enjoy them as a couple overall. You do get to see some of the previous characters, but you don't really get any updates on them which I was hoping. Why I didn't give the book a 5 was the end of the book I wished there would have been an epilogue or a little more about Carter and Beth at the end and there were some formatting issues- one was at the end of the page if it was hyphenated when you turned the page the rest of the sentence was gone so I either had to rotate my device or change the font to get the end of the sentence. The other was the cyborg conversations which weren't out loud some was italicized and some wasn't. Other then that I loved the book. Looking forward to more books from this author!! Hope this helps! Happy Reading!!!
Wow! This is one wild ride!
I’ve run through the gamut of emotions. I was ticked off by Carter’s initial treatment of Beth. Thrilled when she was exonerated and joined the team. Pleased when they became an ‘item.’ Fearful when the enemy struck. Carter’s mission is dangerous; I can understand why things happened as they did. Still, it was shocking to see what transpired. Beth was amazing throughout. What an exciting adventure into the political intrigue of the Association of Planets! Fast-moving, full of surprises, and highly satisfying - a must-read!
