Review: Bionic Lover: An Erotic Lesbian Romance by M. Christian

In this review I'm going to be discussing a book that is a little off my usual reading shelf; the book is Bionic Lover: An Erotic Lesbian Romance by M. Christian.

Shaun's rating:

This book was fantastic! It is set in a futuristic San Francisco during a time when the poor may be drafted into the military and sent off to a brutal war if their worth falls below a certain level. People will do almost anything to avoid being drafted and that includes selling their limbs and organs. Technology has reached a point where there is a market for the donation of living limbs and organs; these can fetch a price high enough that the donor can afford a bionic replacement and still have a bit of money left over, maybe enough to save them from conscription.

Pell is an artist who is teetering on the brink of poverty, and the conscription that would follow if she falls below that monetary line. Arc is a person of the street doing what she can to survive. When they meet at an art exhibit Pell is intrigued by Arc's cybernetic eye, but even more mesmerized by her strength and fire. Arc goes home with Pell and a relationship of sorts begins. Pell only sees Arc occasionally and each time she does there is a little less of her that remains truly Arc.

Prepare to become fully immersed in this story.

This was an amazing read. The author does a masterful job of not just showing you this story but of engaging all of the reader's senses through his descriptions. You don't just see this story; you smell it, you taste it, you hear it, you feel it. The author embeds the reader in this story; you don't just read this book, you experience it.

To be honest I was a bit surprised at just how much I enjoyed this book. The book is scifi with a bit of steampunkish flavor, not usually my thing... I enjoyed it immensely though.

The book is well edited, the reader can skate through the pages with scarcely an editing hiccup. Oh, and the erotic scenes are wonderfully hot and sultry.

I am giving Bionic Lover: An Erotic Lesbian Romance four and one half out of five paddles, I definitely recommend this book.
