After barely surviving a horrific accident, then being held captive for years by Earth Government, Venice must escape the planet. She thinks she's found the answer to her prayers when she contracts to be a deep-space bride - only to find herself facing an even bigger nightmare. Hiding from her con man "husband" aboard his space station, she comes across an intimidating cyborg...one who could just be her last hope.
Deviant is humiliated when his father suggests he visit a pleasure center to make use of a sex bot. True, the defects he was born with have assured female cyborgs will never consider adding him to a family unit. But he still has his pride. The woman who enters the room, however, is incredibly lifelike, and she quickly has Deviant feeling things he'd never dreamed - right until the moment he finds out she's human. Sort of...
Venice needs Deviant's help to get off the space station. Deviant is lonely, and in need of someone to teach him how to pleasure a female. They strike a bargain, one that has Venice giving up her freedom. But soon it's her heart that's at greater risk. It's easy loving Deviant...even when others are determined to make it difficult.

"I just love this series!"
Deviant, who doesn't love a strong man who's sweet and caring as well.
This is my first book narrated by Mindy so I can't compare it, but the narration was excellent. I got so caught up in it that I forgot it's one person doing multiple voices.
Laurann Dohner is one of my favorite authors, I love it when I listen to a new book of hers, and this one does not disappoint.
If you're new to Laurann Dohner or this series then it's important to know that later book have spoilers for earlier books, so it' best to listen to them in order. You also get info on the world set-up in early books and it's assumed that you know this in later books.
The developing relationship between Venice and Deviant is lovely to listen to. If you've made it this far in the series it's safe to say you'll love this one too.
"unwanted sexy cyborg. sign me up!"
nothing better than popping your cherry with a sex-bot... oh wait she's real? perfect, I'll keep her. juicy story with a happy ending.
"One of the lighter, but satisfying reads in the series"
Both very likeable characters in one of the more satisfying reads in Dohner's Cyborg series. Kennedy does a decent but in no way inspired narration. My personal opinion is that the stories in the series have become progressively better. My least favorite female was in book1. Apart from some moments of dark humor in the beginning, that heroine was TSTL and a big turnoff. Those characters were not believable in the context of the world Dohner built. Too bad Dohner hasn't given us the snapshots into the lives of previous characters which give the satisfaction of HEA, & link the series tighter together. There would be more value to the books & series than any minor negative implication that the book isn't completely "stand-alone".
"Excellent story. ..A Must Read for Cyborg Fans"
Loved this book. Venice remains optimistic, strong and resourceful no matter how awful things become. She needs help and gets it from an amazing male, that happens to be a cyborg. Lots of intriguing twists and turns. Hot steamy sex and wonderful HEA.
I wanted the story to keep going on and on!!! Love love love kind, tender, sexy Deviant.
"what's not to love..."
This is a must have. I think this might be my favorite and so sad that I finished.
"Another great addition to the series"
This segment of the series is as good as the others. I highly recommend this audiobook. Well worth your credit and time.
"5 Loving Deviant Stars"
YAYA!! Ok I will admit I was hoping this book was Eve’s sister and Gene. But I am so happy it wasn't, not that I don’t want their book because I do. But this book oh it just hit me in all the feels.
Deviant is the son of Mavo we met him in Taunting Krell’s book. He adopted Cyan.
Deviant is a 35 yr old virgin, not common for their race. But because of his skin color and his eyes his “defects” no female cyborg wants his genes or him in there family unit.
So Mavo takes Deviant to a brothel? To be pleasured by a sex bot. Only he finds himself with an Earther Venice. She is in need of help to get off Earth and away from the men who want to sell her in to the whore houses.
She too has “defects” as well. Earth wants her for her blood. But she is expendable.
The connection between Deviant and Venice is strong, you would think it’s because they are both in need of something from each other but it’s so not like that. They see beyond what everyone else sees.
This is probably my favorite love story of this whole series! I want to see Mavo get a girl too!
Mindy out does herself with this series, I can’t wait for more. I really hope she is the narrator because she just brings these characters to life.
*You don't have to like my review but its 100% my opinion, and I am allowed to have it.*
"loved it. can't stop smiling."
as usually LD does it again. I've read every story and they never get old or boring. what a great storyteller. this one is short yet she covers every angle and never leaves you hanging. character development is awesome. all her characters are uniquely wonderful knights in shining grey armor. I love it.
What a beautifully written book. There were no insecurities no immaturity no lies and deceivement.
I loved this book. I'm looking forward to Mavos book.
