Summary

An army of bots is roaming the space station - hijacked by a terrorist inside BlumBot International. The bots share a hive mind that learns and adapts, making them the most deadly adversaries Jonah has ever faced.

Jonah and Maggie are prepared to fight alongside the Space Force, but how can they defeat an army that never eats, never sleeps, and never grows tired? To protect the colony, they must join forces with Tripp Van de Graaf - the cocky young executive with dimples for days.

Tripp makes no effort to hide his attraction toward Maggie, and Jonah hates him instantly. But Tripp’s company holds the key to defeating the bots: their human creator Ziva Blum. 

When Maggie, Tripp, and Jonah learn that more humanoids are hibernating on Earth, they must race to stop a madman bent on destruction and save the world from a robot apocalypse.

A clear improvement from Part 1 but..

I was provided a copy of this book free of charge in exchange for an honest review. From early on it was clear the sequel would have more going for it and there is plenty of action to be had. Loads of romance still and, when from the perspective of Jonah, it seems particularly unmasceline in the wording. Also, no 20-something brit uses the word Buggers when talking about their enemies. Better than book 1 for sure but I'm afraid I won't be continuing to book 3 as I unfortunately don't feel any attachment to the cast at all.

Action packed, thin plot

This installment has the same flaws as the first. When everything is new on the first book, here just became repetitive, nothing new is added. There is more action, but with a plot this thin, it's not really enjoyable. Some of the characters actions are questionable and the villain is plain and his goals are generic. I want to how they will defeat the threat, but I'm hoping the next installment isn't just a repetition of this one. The narrator did an amazing job, specially her male voice, it's quite surprising the variety of voices she can make.

The second installment gripped me

The way the book is written and considering the way technology is taking over our lives, the plot is horrifying and gripping. I have bought into Maggie, and how can we not like Jonah? Trip is kind of thrown in the middle, a little of a cliché but with his influence / wealth the story can move forward. I really enjoy the action in this series, whether in the space station or on earth, the plot thickens and I am more sold on the series than with the first book. Jaqueline DeGraff is still not totally sold on me, though. She definitely got better since Book 1 with regards to the lilting, but I hated her British accent, totally grated on my nerves - having grown up there, this is not how anyone in England sounds. But it might be good enough for Americans or other non-British that are not that used to accents. Anyway, I still like how she changes her voices to match the characters but the British accent and Mordecai's very unnatural tone were annoying.

Awesome!

The second book in the series is just as great as the first one. This novel has a lot more action, but it still has a good plot and some feelings. I truly recommend it!
