Book Review: I, Bionic by Jess K. Hardy

Title: I, Bionic
Series: Ignisar (Book 2)
Author: Jess K. Hardy
Genre: Romance, Science Fiction
Publication Date: April 7th, 2022
Publisher: City Owl Press


After half-human bionic Elanie installs her LunaCorp hormone upgrade, tumultuous emotions and her changing body complicate her life aboard the deep space pleasure cruise, the Ignisar. Seeking answers, she’s thrown into the path of the ship’s handsome but curt physician, Sem, an empath from the ocean planet Portis.

Knowing empaths typically can’t tolerate being around bionics since AI emotions are unreadable, Sem is worried he won’t be able to treat Elanie effectively. Especially as he finds himself undeniably drawn to her, making a fool of himself every time he sees her. Remaining professional in the face of a massively inappropriate crush becomes next to impossible.

When a mysterious voice hacks Elanie’s programming, forcing her to hijack an escape pod and jump through space, Sem follows her to the edges of the Known Universe. Stranded on an uncharted planet together, they must fight to survive deadly blizzards, arctic ice caves, and a secret, hedonistic cult. Navigating their growing feelings for each other might prove to be an even greater challenge than escaping back to the Ignisar.

Hello Fellow Readers,

This is the second book in the series, but can be read as a standalone which is what I did, but now I am going to have to read the first book in the series because I loved this. I was really looking for a fun, smutty romance that could jump start my reading habit as I have been slacking off lately and I, Bionic did exactly that. 

The Chemistry between Sem and Elaine was good and I enjoyed both of their point of views, but I did enjoy Sem's chapters just a little bit more early on. Eventually, I learned to really enjoy Elaine's no nonsense naive attitude. Honestly, I did not expect there to be to much of a coherent plot, so I was pleasantly surprised, that there actually was one, and a interesting one to say the least. I will say that the ending did seem a little rushed, but the sexy times were good and I really enjoyed it.

Overall, a very fun and sexy read.
