Series: Love-Bots, book #2
This is Harris’s second installment in the very sexy stein Love Bots series. After having read both books in the series I can confidently tell you that they can be read as a stand-alone and not in any specific order. There was not any information presented in one or the other that was pertinent to the other book. I love that the steins have feelings and distinctive personalities. They are not what I picture as zombies. Indeed they are reanimated corpses. The fact that they begin thinking for themselves shortly after the link to their handlers is severed gives them that piece of humanity that won’t allow me to see them as zombies.
Shani is on a mission from Zombie Underground to acquire one of Synadate’s Love-Bots. This assignment reminds her too much of her past, a past that she wishes she had never experienced. Shani was an illegally made Love-Bot where she was used and abused as an unlicensed sex slave. After escaping that life she has sworn off any sexual contact.
The programming that some steins are programmed with does not allow them the choice of free will, but the same programming has the stein brain washed into thinking that they want this life. Royce seems to think he likes that he is Love-Bot working at a BDSM club. So when the sexy stein from the bar tries to persuade him into following her to his freedom he resists. Trouble arises quickly as the farther he gets away from his handlers he begins to experience the fail safes they have installed in him to assure that he never tried to run off.
Royce and Shani soon find that to relieve Royce from the pain he needs to experience sexual release. There are two problems. Shani doesn’t want to be touched, and the other just seems like something that you need to read to find out. The more these two sexy steins are in each other’s presence the more they find that there is an attraction building. Royce and Shani throw of some serious flames while they are burning up the pages. This installment in the series is definitely kinkier than its predecessor. It is topped off with vibrators, strap on dildos, anal play and vibrating enhanced stein body parts.
