Plix spends her lonely, gritty life trying to solve the mysteries her father left behind. Armed with a variety of cybernetic enhancements and a talent for getting into places she shouldn’t be, she searches for clues to his murder—and who’s responsible for poisoning her city.
Waking up on a street corner with her brain wiring fried to a crisp, she figures she must have gotten close this time. There’s only one man she trusts to pull her back from the brink: a tuner who can retrieve the evidence hidden deep in the recesses of her mind. A man she dares not let too close to her heart.
When Edison downloads a secret SynDate schematic from Plix’s burnt-out circuitry, he knows with dreadful finality that nothing—not even the fiery kiss he’s been holding back for years—will stop her from pursuing her quest past the point of insanity.
All he can do, as he helps her plan her final mission, is ease her pain, watch her back…and hope one of them doesn’t pay with their lives.
Contains a heroine intent on kicking ass and taking names, a high-tech dystopia, cybernetic body modifications, and emotionally charged, sensual romance.
I love Sci-fi and I love romance, so Jeanette Grey’s Unacceptable Risk is a book I looked forward to reading, and I was not disappointed at all. Plix is a young woman who has had a number of cyborg type enhancements made to her body. Everytime she is injured, and it happens a lot, a new augmentation is installed, sometimes surgically, sometimes chemically.
Plix comes to depend on the nerdy and well-named Edison, who is a tuner. A tuner is a person who adjusts the body improvements in the cyber/humans such as Plix. Not only does Plix need Edison to help her when she is injured and/or “improved,” but there is sexual tension between them from the start that develops into love and lust.
This is a violent story and Plix is one plucky heroine, suffering many terrible injuries in her persuit to stop the poisoning of the environment. The improvements inflicted upon her body are also painful. Ms. Grey writes graphically and descriptively so the reader’s imagination is vibrating with the suffering of the injured. She depicts many adjustments as like fire racing through parts of the body.
I enjoyed this book and recommend it to fans of science fiction, space romance, and a story of attraction between two people who have to overcome roadblocks to their HEA.
