Seth (Cyborgs More than Machines #5) by Eve Langlais

His mission: Blend in with the humans. Save the cyborgs. And seduce the only woman he ever loved, without getting killed.

Cybernetic spy models are different from other humans turned machine. For one thing, they never completely lost touch with their humanity, or their memories. But retaining their identity doesn’t mean the military didn’t mess with their lives. Seth lost the woman he loved because of their web of lies. When the chance arises to make things right, he relies on his superior intellect—and irresistible charm—to prove his innocence, and make Anastasia his again.

Anastasia might possess upgraded parts and programming, but the scientists never could cure her of her biggest weakness, jealousy. The volatile emotion made her walk away from love once. Can she overcome it and recognize the truth? Or will she continue to let the military manipulate her emotional strings?

Overall Rating:  3 Rockin' Stars

"I live.  I breathe.  I feel"

"Jealousy was a vicious bitch.  Anastasia had never met the emotion until Seth."

"How could I have ever let her walk away?  The answer was simple.  He wouldn't have.  I didn't.  They made him.  And I can promise right now, it won't happen again."

"How could he ever forgive me for doubting him?  How can I ever forgive myself?"

When you think about it, the whole cyborg idea is really rather baffling.  However, when you delve into this book series you can't help but see that there's more than meets the eye!  Eve Langlais' cyborg creation is a human who becomes more machine than not.  In this book, the main characters Seth and Anastasia are long lost lovers who get another chance to right a wrong done to both of them.  Seth and his other cyborg brothers and sisters are living safely on a planet away from Earth.  Anastasia is working for the enemy undercover with a vendetta against the creators of the cyborg species.  Seth is funny and a mostly delightful character who is a bit cocky and very boyish.  Whereas Anastasia's outward ambiance is tough as nails, but on the inside she seems to be battling a war against her machine logic and her human intuition.  This book takes you on a journey filled with a sense of wanting to belong, again.  I enjoyed reading this book, definitely a good read.   However, I can't say that it's my favorite of the cyborg series...GrÄ“ta
