#8Sunday: From Trapped with the Cyborg…why do men never do what you want them to?


Amanda and Sonny hook up in a space bar. Things get hot and heavy and they have sex standing up against the wall of his room.  I’m skipping ahead to the revealing aftermath… (punctuation slightly modified).

He still had her trapped between him and the wall. Perspiration coated their bodies; she was stuck to him. “You can put me down now,” she said.

“Okay.” With an arm across her back and his large hand gripping her ass cheek, he carried her to the bed, sank onto it, and pulled her into the crook of his body. Hairy male limbs wound around her legs. Oh, great–a cuddler. Why did men never do what you needed them to? The ones you wished would hold you, fell asleep; the quick fucks you needed to escape from turned into octopuses.

Lol. She’s trapped with the cyborg (but this isn’t the significance of the title).

Book Description

The only thing more dangerous than a suicide mission is falling in love…

Amanda Mansfield has faced challenges in her life: the disapproval of her critical father and the near-fatal accident that ended a promising military career and resulted in her transformation to cyborg. Now a Cyber Operations field agent, she volunteers to lead the most dangerous Cy-Ops mission ever: infiltrating enemy territory to find the secret hideaway of a terrorist mastermind. The last thing she needs is an added complication.

Like him. Sonny Masters. Her partner. A streetwise former thug turned cyber operative with a lethal grin. He can’t seem to understand she’s in charge and does not require his protection. He’s everything she dislikes—and everything her body wants.

If they can keep their hands off each other long enough to complete the mission, they might just get out alive…

Trapped with the Cyborg (Cy-Ops Sci-fi Romance 4) is a standalone read.

    One thing you can count on 😉 is the contrariness of life.
    Love the humour in this, Cara.
    I guess she is going to fully experience just what kind of octupus he is.

  2. You never know with men Just watch out. Great snippet.

  3. Yes, life never proceeds in the way you want it too. But I expect in the end she will come to enjoy being cuddled by him. Great snippet.

  4. Botanist says:

    LOL! Has no man ever told her (like I keep having to remind my wife) – I’m not a mind reader! 😀

  5. Amy Braun says:

    Hahaha this was awesome! Definitely not what she was expecting. The whole snippet made me smile, so thank you for that!

  6. LOL In this case, I think it’s for the best. Save her from her suicide mission, whether he knows or not. Great tease! 🙂

  7. I feel badly for poor Sonny, trying to be all cuddly 🙂 and not appreciated! Great snippet!

  8. I love cuddlers! As long as they’re the right ones, and I guess therein lies the problem. 🙂 Great snippet.

  9. Lolol! Ooooh, that last sentence!! Outstanding, Cara!

  10. Whenever something does go the way you want, it’s far less memorable than when it doesn’t. Or men just never do what anyone wants them to. 😉

  11. As a guy, let me put this snippet in the proper perspective. The correct question is, why do women always change their minds about what they want? 😉

  12. Last line was too funny..and true! Great snippet!
