Tau Cetus police agent Jai Turner is being sent undercover as a Beautiful Dolls sex robot in order to bring down Tau Cetus’ most notorious arms dealer, Marque Callex. The police have never been able to get close to Callex, and Jai’s assignment is to use her sexual skills to satisfy Marque, and to coax information out of him on his illicit dealings – information that will lead to his conviction.
Notoriously reclusive arms dealer Marque Callex only accepted an invitation from Beautiful Dolls because he needs a little stress relief. With his deadly line of work – and the dangerous secrets he’s keeping – he rarely lets anyone into his life. That’s why a week of free, no-commitment, no-holds-barred sex – in return for giving Beautiful Dolls owner Anson Carron feedback on how his newest model of sexbot performs – is perfect for him.
But neither Jai nor Marque are what they seem, and their week together has consequences neither expected.
If you can check reality at the door, this story was pretty hot and well written. I liked the main characters as well as Jai's partner, Wyatt. This is a futuristic story where Jai is a police woman who has to go undercover to become a sexbot to get close to an arms dealer.
I found it hard to get past the idea that the police captain wanted Jai to pretend to be a sexbot. This would put her at the mercy of a known criminal to appease his sexual appetite for one hour ever day for 5 days just to get Intel, all the while being filmed having sex for police evidence. This was a hang up for me on this story.
I thought it would also be a hard sell for Jai to pass as a robot, but I will say the author did a good job of explaining her transformation to make her believable. Overall a good story and I'm very interested in reading Wyatts story. ARC provided by NetGalley.
