They weren’t supposed to have feelings.
Metal will Clash
In a not-too-distance future, robots composed of metal for bones, electric cords for veins, and synthetics for skin are now available. For purchase. Eighteen-year-old Vienna Avery’s home is going to change forever, now that her mom purchased an Italian Chef Robot to cook and reside in their house.
Secrets will Unfold
The government claimed robots were indifferent, unthinking pieces of metal and elastic—assistance for the help of humans. Vienna never believed much of what the government said. The pieces didn’t always fit. And now Vienna knows why, because she’s uncovered the government’s secret: that robots have emotions, sucking Vienna into the underground world of feeling, thinking, and sovereign robots.
Sparks will Fly
Alec Cypher is everything a robot is not supposed to be: deep, dark, and dangerously human. And for some reason, he wants to save Vienna from the government’s prying, vindictive eyes. Going forward, Vienna will have to learn to trust robots and battle the growing feelings she never thought possible . . . feelings for the green-eyed, soul-searching robot named Alec.
I wanted to love this story I really did.
I loved the plot and idea that Sheena Snow has come up for this story, but it was just too slow for my liking. I hated the constant dragging out as to why Vienna was taken into hiding by the very things she hated – robots, I actually skipped half the book as I just wanted to find out. I never do that with books this one just not connect with me at all.
I am really upset by that, I really wanted to love this, I just didn’t like Vienna much – her inner dialogue was just too much of “I hate robots” oh wait “I love robots”, when she agrees to go away with them she took her sweet time demanding they tell her everything yet when they told something she didn’t like the sound of she would run away, or yell at them and for the first half of the book I had no idea what age she is supposed to be portraying as she comes across as a 12 or 13 year old * edit: sorry she is 18 years old, but for intents and purpose she is more like 13!
Sheena Snow, contrary to her name, lives in South Florida and has only seen snow once. But she would love for it to land on her eyelashes and sparkle in her hair. She loves painting, candle making, orchid shows, tattoo conventions, hockey games and library book sales! After college she landed a full time job but kept serving pizza on the weekends and writing stories about characters she wished really existed, characters who never gave up no matter the obstacles life threw at them. At the age of twenty-six, she sold her first book and bought her very first puppy, a wonderful Yorkie named Aladdin.
