Ten years ago Penelope Isabella Aaron had been a pain in Brock Mann’s you-know-what. Much has changed in a decade: “PIA” as he code-named her, has grown up and is about to attend her first Alliance of Planets summit conference, and Brock has been transformed into a cyborg after a near-fatal attack. Now a secret agent with Cyber Operations, a covert paramilitary organization, Brock gets called in, not when the going gets tough, but when the going gets impossible. So when he’s unexpectedly assigned to escort Penelope to the summit meeting, he balks at babysitting a prissy ambassador. But after a terrorist bombing, a crash landing on a hostile planet, and a growing attraction to his protectee, Operation: PIA may become his most impossible assignment yet.
I want to start by saying that I could not get into this book the first time I picked it up. I set it aside because I didn't think I would enjoy it. I was reading too many historical romances and figured I would give it another go after I got out of my historical romance mood.
I must say that I am extremely happy I started to read it again. I was so engrossed in this book I read it in a little over an hour and a half. I loved that it was ten years later that they meet again. Brock no longer saw her as the teen needing protection but as a woman. Yes she still needed his protection but when love happens it happens.
Pia's life is being threatened and it is Brock's job to protect her. He saved her countless times but after defying death by mere seconds they find themselves talked on a deserted planet with the enemy still after them. Will the planet's environment kill them our will they be found out by the enemy? When will Brock confess to Pia that he is a cyborg? Will their love survive the situation they are in?
Definitely a must read for all the sci fi fans who love a good romance. I will definitely be checking out more of Cara Bristol's books.
