Hi, book buddies :o) Today I'm super excited to tell you about this novella. It's part 1, and I hope to read the next installment some day because the first part of THE EXCHANGE, by N. Isabelle Blanco, got me so hooked! I'm beginning to think of this author as one of my favourites in this genre ;o)
I'm addicted to being inside a man's head when it comes to romance or utter sexiness. It's something that always turn my lights on.
We have this special agent who's as tough as they come. He's deadly, focused, mission-bent. All that changes when he meets HER. H'es in charge of a covert operation to deliver a girl back to her rich and powerful father, but she's no ordinary girl. She's been dead.
Now, resurrected with her body in part recomposed with bionic parts thanks to cutting edge technology, this new challenge is going to prove his undoing.
In addition, her mind has been tampered with using computer software. Is she the lost daughter or something else that has evolved beyond humanity or AI?
The kind of electricity that sparks between them is contagious. And so damn intimate and encouraging. I loved the mixture of bionics, hidden threats and this blossoming, all-consuming bond that envelops two people who are half human, half evolved beings.
When the action took place, I appreciated its impact thanks to the visual, rapid fire writing style. And the sexual tension keeps building up and up in the most wonderfully teasing way. The moment it bursts into consummation is shattering.
I can consider myself a fan of this author now. I've read other works by her and her style is powerfully direct. There's something unforgettable about her depictions of raw, primitive bonding between men and women that appeal to the naughty side of me. I can't wait to read the second installment. That shocking ending left me panting.
Synopsis Project Sapphire: The World’s first AI. A top-secret project exposed to a select group of scientists. Lei Heaton, a man desperate to save his daughter, is at the top of the bionics empire. He not only hired the team to repair his daughter’s damaged body, he plans to reanimate her dead mind using the Sapphire AI. A dangerous man—a killer that is no regular human… Maxwell Landon—codename: Deimos—is the Adelphi Organization’s top agent. His M.O is simple: Never fail. He's used to annihilating anyone that gets in his way. But this time, he's being called to protect and deliver. Deimos is aware that this mission won't be like any other. Then he lays eyes on the resurrected Ms. Heaton, and instantly he knows: That is not Magdalena Heaton. And he will never be the same again. Control, his most prized possession, is ripped from him with a single glance... The violent attraction he feels for the girl complicates matters immediately. But what Deimos doesn't know is that things are about to get much worse. Sapphire isn't just a completely different person than the dead Ms. Heaton—she's the AI miracle of the century. An advancement that many would kill to own. Including himself, no matter how hard he fights against it. A girl determined to protect her creator. A man determined to protect her... Despite the fact that she is not Magdalena, Sapphire is bent on taking her place as Mr. Heaton's daughter in order to keep her creator safe. Deimos knows that he has to honor her wish. But the thing inside him is demanding more. More than a touch. A lot more than a taste. It responds to everything about her...every stuttered breath that lets him know she wants him as much as he wants her. How does he walk away when he knows that no matter how far he is from her, she’ll always be in danger and he'll always hunger for her?

About the Author
N. Isabelle Blanco was born in Queens, NY (USA). At the age of three, due to an odd fascination with studying her mother’s handwriting, she began to read and write. By the time she’d reached kindergarten, she had an extensive vocabulary and her obsession with words began to bleed into every aspect of her life. An avid reader in her teens, her fascination with Japanese anime eventually led her to the universe of fan fiction, which became her on-again, off-again hobby for the next ten years. During that time she amassed a following of fans that, by her own admission, she would never be able to live without. It was those fans who encouraged her to step beyond the fan fiction realm and try her talent in the publishing world. N. Isabelle Blanco spends her days working as an author, web programmer, marketer, and graphic designer. That is when she isn’t handling her “spawn”, as she calls her son, and brainstorming with him about his future career as a comic book illustrator.
