Title: Breathing Vapor
Author: Cynthia Sax
Series: Cyborg Sizzle #2
Vapor is determined to escape with his brethren but he is distracted by Mira Breazeal, the Designer’s daughter. She is all he thinks about, but the other cyborgs want her dead. They consider her just as heartless as her father, but is it true.
Vapor, and the other cyborgs in this book, are a new group trying to escape from the Human Alliance. Vapor is considered one of the deadliest and is tasked with ending Mira’s life. But the more he finds out about her the less he can resist her. Vapor is a controlling alpha male. He doesn’t hesitate to punish Mira with a spanking when she lies or disobeys, which is often. He grew on me as the book went on, especially after he admitted his feelings.
“I want your honesty and your lies, your submission and your rebellion, your unbreakable spirit and your unending softness. I want to be your now and your future, the male you wake up with and the warrior you fight beside.”
Mira is living a lie. She has been hiding her true self for so long she no longer knows how to be normal. She is just seen as the merciless daughter of the Designer, which works in her favor. Vapor teaches her to trust others again. He also allows her to finally be her true self. I thought Mira was a strong woman who took a terrible situation and used it to her advantage as much as she could.
Overall, this was a steamy cyborg romance. I do hope we get more information about the Humanoid Alliance and the Homeworld soon. So far we have only gotten a few pieces of information about them.
