I think it might be well along in a series, but I'm not certain and didn't like this book enough to go to the author's website to find out.

The humans remove his internal computer so that he's just a person now, and place him in the home of a single mother (Evie) during his recuperation. They fall in love, get married, have babies, yadda, yadda. The characters were flat, predictable, and melodramatic. Something that bothers me about a lot of romance novels is the self-important heroine who exhibits "moxy", or as I like to think of it, thinnly veiled egotism. ("My role as a housewife/librarian/shop owner makes the world go round!") This novel has a twist on that idea - the heroine starts out a brow-beaten floormat but improves herself to the moxy level. I enjoyed this book as a light, silly, happy read, but only because I've read too many dark, brooding, dangerous books recently.

'But he's... an extraterrestrial.' The word squeezed past Pierce's straight, perfectly white clenched teeth like dough through a cookie press. Except if his voice were to be made into cookies, they'd be inedible, bitter and burned. Wow, I can't believe that I finally ran into my first DNF! In actuality, this book was so difficult to read, that my avoidance of even working my way another chapter into the book sent me into a slump for two weeks. Even the racist vampire book didn't manage that! What ended up being the death knell for this book for me, wasn't just the fact that the writing was pretty bizarre, but that it also handled a lot of heavy topics that I couldn't really rely on the plot to deal with appropriately. Seriously difficult subject matter that kept being thrown at the reader - torture, inoperable kill switches, government intervention, mob involvement, direct violence enacted against characters, etc. - was constantly getting entangled with somewhat breathlessly stupid characterizations and dialogue. Most notably, our main character is one kid in a long line of a political dynasty, the only one who doesn't seem to have much of a elite streak. She's an unhappy housewife - the mother of two kids she shares with a cold and unfeeling adulturer ex-husband - who is also constantly beleaguered by requests from her oblivious, well-respected family members, who rely on her to take care of the dirty work of their lives, but also seem hell-bent on undercutting her sense of self-worth at every opportunity. Her attempt to prove them wrong? By starting a CHOCOLATE-COVERED STRAWBERRY business that caters to large events. But that's not all: she decides to really tell her family off by donating the proceeds to charity, directing what pittance she earns towards funding organizations that end child trafficking. She justifies this with the acknowledgement that had Earth been invaded (as was attempted in a previous installment), the entire human race might have been sold into slavery on other planets. And that's why chocolate-covered strawberries are so important to her! It's as if there's absolutely no balance the serious, dark implications of subject matter, and the neon pink goofiness of the actual writing. The extremes are far to much to trade off between. The part where I closed the book for good was actually when it became clear that the heroine's relationship with her d-bag ex-husband was going to end in trouble... like, in a "he's actually building a really effective case for renegotiating child support against you and removing your legal right to see your kids" kind of way. In a mild panic, I flipped to the second-to-last page to see if it managed to get resolved all right by the end, only to see it flippantly abandoned with only the sheerest veneer of quasi-resolution (aka, she is handed a court warrant, which she then tears up in front of him, and tells him 'Bite me.' Which I feel like wouldn't stand up in an actual court of law?) In total, the book didn't seem to take itself seriously, so it became borderline painful for me to take it so seriously. I read Romance for an engaging distraction, not a parade of Sad and Bad Things that never end up being resolved before the HEA. Really just not my thing at all. One note about the author, though: this book was originally sold as a mass-market paperback by Harlequin, back in 2007. Since then, the author appears to have since purchased her own material back, repackaging and selling it under a new name - Cyborg and the Single Mom - as an ebook, through publisher Singing Tree Media, via Amazon. Due to the importance of ebook purchasing and availability in contemporary Romance readership, and its lucrative nature for authors, I wanted to make sure that at the very least, I shouted out Grant's business acumen. Woo, you go, Susan! Get that money! It's the sort of thing I hope to see more traditionally-published Romance authors doing in the future.

Silly me is a walking-talking turtle poop who’s never read Susan Grant...UNTIL NOW! Yall, my subterranean rock dwelling ass was missing out because Reef! If you told me I’d fall in hearteyes with Terminator, I’d slap ya silly. But, whoops, that happened because Reef 01 is- you know -an alien robot killing computer man. And PITY HIM ‘cause Mr. Cyborg got kid kidnapped and operated on Wolverine style. He stayed at the porthole long after Sandreem shrank to a blue-green star and disappeared, staring outside until his tears had dried to tracks of salt on his cheeks and his heart was as hollow as the void of space outside. CUE ALL MY SAD! The bad guys send Reef in to go Murder Death Kill on Evie’s family. Luckily his computers go wonky so his humanity gets rebooted. Ex-bad guys always get my heart; especially when they fall in mushy gushy love with a divorced mom of two teenagers. Alas, Robot Boy needs some R&R, so he gets sent to stay with the heroine! There was so much fun plot stuff in this lil doodad, but the book’s near perfection is what blew my booty away. Science Fiction always goes too hard or not hard enough for me, but HTLAE10D was my Baby Bear. I jumped into book 3 of this series without once getting lost. Susan Grant takes time to set up the backstory for both Reef AND the universe. AND THAT ROCKED LIKE IGNEOUS! Keeping the OTP apart for 100 pages let me learn our Robot Assassin isn’t a cold blooded killer. Reef plays Evie’s bodyguard and the two stay camped out at her place. After that, the science in this science fiction takes a bit of a chill pill. Had the setup gone any differently, Reef would’ve been less Mr. Rocket Man and more Joe The Plumber...Except, you know, with a hella tragic internal identity and morality crisis being an ex assassin/part machine who lacks his pre-kidnapped memory. Like DAYUM son! Boy legit fears he’s just an outsider with nothing to offer Earth, and ouch my heartstrings! But this shindig worked for me because Evie got just as much internal conflict as our sexy space traveller. This silver spoon political family chick is a divorced stay-at-home mom who never went to college and has no career. No shade, but damn if society and her family don’t inadvertently make her feel inadequate. She even calls it; she runs errands, her family saves the world. Literally. Her ex husband and failed marriage, her lack of professional or academic success...OH MY GOD SO MUCH GOOD JUICEY INTERNAL CONFLICT! She’s sad but she’s not a whimpy flower. Evie’s got a strength in her that’s quiet and realistic. This badass strong mom copes with her internal crap while being a loving parent and a supportive daughter. That stuff is my jelly jam, and the book had tons of it...It was just missing a little bit of peanut butter. Now I FEDEX shipped Evie and Reef ‘cause I totally bought them as an OTP. Hero loves heroine and heroine loves hero, and I believed it ten thousand percent. Buuuuut... The drawback of spending 100 pages on character development is that you kinda gotta rush the hearteyes. Evie and Reef fall hard and fast for one another, and that’s kind of a pet peeve. They’re not quite insta-love but they dangerously toe the line. But because Evie is so interestingly written and Reef is so compellingly evocative, they get a pass. Plus they’ve got a fun, playful dynamic that was pretty darn irresistible. He calls her Earthling, she calls him EXTRA-terrestrial. AND bless Susan Grant for writing a virgin hero, BECAUSE I LOVE VIRGIN HEROS! Snowflake heroines get hella old, so I loved how Evie was the experienced one in the sack. Reef’s embarrassment at thinking of doing the frick frack with her was soooOOoooOOOooo damn cute! Boy was a robot half his life, so attraction is a brand new game for him, and damn that’s fun. AND ADORABLE! Boy balances his horny and his respect for Evie and mad yes to that. The romance gets my thumb’s up, but so does the story’s story! The tone and pacing kept the angsty pants from making my heart bleed all over the pages. Plus, the cool world building had my brain cells dancing. Evie’s family save Earth in the series’ overarching plot, and that really sells this universe! I hate otherworldly men (forgive the pun) who don’t feel like Earth foreigners, but that was SOOO not a problem here! Even though the story puts a pause on the scifi, our OTP eventually do some star travelling in the story’s climax showdown. It added just enough science fiction back into a mostly contemporary romance. If you want a solid fun little story, you got no excuse; go put your face in this book. ------------------------------------------------ If you like my writing voice or you think I’m funny...[or you just really wanna laugh at a fangirl for fangirling]...then SHAMELESS YOUTUBE CHANNEL PLUG IS SHAMELESS!

    REEF first appeared in Guardian Alien. The events of this story overlaps with those of Royal Recruit. As a result, while this is a solid stand alone done in one story, having read the other two stories first gave me a richer understanding of the Universe, and a deeper understanding of REEF coming in. REEF was born Eriff of Sandreem, though he has no memory of his idyllic childhood before being conscripted into the coalition’s REEF program, mindwiped, and enhanced into a cyborg killing machine.

REEF was born Eriff of Sandreem, though he has no memory of his idyllic childhood before being conscripted into the coalition’s REEF program, mindwiped, and enhanced into a cyborg killing machine. The charm of his story comes from his journey to rediscover his humanity, his internal monologue mantras to help him on that journey, and this story’s debate of who and what is a monster. Evie is a natural born nurturer, and even with very real, personal reasons to want REEF nowhere near her and her family, when she spots the wounded child beneath the injured killing machine, she can’t resist her instinct to provide him with a safe place to heal. Her kids are great, with just the right amount of “story time”, I get frustrated in stories like this when the kids feel like props, but Ellen and John received better treatment than that.

    What’s better than Chocolate…a cyborg assassin of course!

Evie, the nurturing suburbia single mom with two children creates extraordinary chocolate-dipped strawberries which I could almost taste. I admit to a few laugh-out-loud moments during the developing love story. I highly recommend all three “WorldlyMen” books. “Cyborg…” delivers a powerful conclusion.

Rich world building, enticing characters and a beautiful story wrap up to a memorable tale.

    I was so happy to read this book. It is the third in the series and it was really good. REEF’s struggle to grab hold of his humanity and to rid himself of his programming was heartbreaking and the story about his capture was truly harrowing. Evie, her two kids and the collection of animals including the very fierce Sadie were the perfect force to help REEF discover his humanity. There was plenty of action, adventure and some seriously sweet moments. I loved it! I received a free copy of this book I was so happy to read this book.

    I love this book I have already read it some years ago and I have enjoyed reading it again. It is a nice story funny and interesting. I love Susan Grant's books. The characters are strong and adventurous, after an accident a cyborg assassin sees his life changed when the man he went to kill gives him a second chance. Suddenly he starts to remember his childhood and remember the family he left behind when he was kidnapped at a young age to be part of a project that became him in a killer machine.

    As always, Susan Grant gives us characters who feel so human, so real that we cannot help but relate to them and their histories and their dilemmas. Who cannot relate to the child who was forced to become REEF 1 or the divorcee trying to save the world in spite of her ex-? That these characters end up meeting because of Area 51 just adds an element of speculation and unpredictability to the mundane-ness of their growing relationship. This is a more sympathetic take on cyborg romances than usual, As always, Susan Grant gives us characters who feel so human, so real that we cannot help but relate to them and their histories and their dilemmas.

    Read in the box set through Kindle Unlimited. I do like this authors books. Enjoyable in their own way but you have to remember these are a prequel set of stories to THE BORDERLANDS series. So glad to get Reef/Eriff’s story and loved how it played out. Seems there are madmen playing god everywhere in the universe. Had tears when Eriff finally went home. When Evie finally stood up to her ex-husband Pierce, it was just a bit of a non-happening, really wanted her to get a good kick in.

    This could have been so good. It could have explored what it means to be human, deal with PTSD, fight those inner battles. It could have been about fighting for what you want in the face of everyone who says you’re wrong, you’re weak, you’re silly. It could have been about so much more than chocolate covered strawberries. The author pulled her punches. It was tinny bits of struggle coated in saccharine, sunny, sweetness.

    A great story Another excellent book by Susan Grant. I always know that I'm in for a treat with a book by Susan Grant and this story was no exception. With a great plotline and characters it's a rollercoaster ride from its intriguing start to its totally satisfying conclusion. If I could give it more than five stars, I would.

    Another success The romance and storyline were nice but it was the return of Eriff’s emotions and Evie finally doing things for herself that made the story. I loved the awakening of Eriff’s emotions. The way people reacted to him initially as a REEF was not good but unfortunately realistic. I wish real life could be resolved as easily as this was.

    Enough To Binge! Scifantasy/adventure/romance. Third of three, well crafted novels. Don't want to give too much away. Love strong characters and consensual la'mour fatale? Read these. There's a whole galaxy and at least 9 tomes to explore. So good I didn't want to blow off the review and refer blurb. Enjoy. Enough To Binge! Scifantasy/adventure/romance.

    Cyborg & the single mom I think this may be my favourite of this series. The Reef has been convalescing at the Gatekeepers and most of his implants have been removed leaving him fragile and human. Then they send him to stay with Evie, cue the dramatic music.
