Smuggler Natasha Morrison winds up on a penal colony due to
a combination of greed and poor judgment on her part. The
man that she just recently helped transport off Earth, Miles
Foster, is a convicted criminal wanted for homicide.
Natasha was deceived by him and is imprisoned for aiding and
abetting his escape. She is taken into custody by
Maximillian, a Stinger series android, created to track and
execute wanted fugitives.
Natasha is in for the ride of her life with Max. Sheís also
desperately afraid that once Foster is found, she will be
next on the list to die at the androidís hands. This
doesnít stop her from being attracted to Max.
Although he is an android, Max has a deep-seated sense of
self and begins to develop strong feelings for his
prisoner. He needs to focus on his mission. Yet, it proves
to be more and more difficult the closer he becomes to the
sensual blonde beauty.
Natasha and Max sweep through seedy red light districts,
peep shows and sex clubs in The Love Machine.
Just when I thought things couldnít getter hotter, throw in
exhibitionism, voyeurism, spanking and a splash of BDSM.
What you have is a sizzling, white-hot narrative of what it
means to be human. Max and Natasha are the perfect choice
for underlining the differences. Sex and technology are
interchangeably used throughout to demonstrate what it means
to feel something beyond lust for another person. Itís
quite effective because Max is an android, and I was
fascinated by how the author takes him through different
types of psychological evolution. Natasha is the perfect
means to help him gain access to his humanity on an
emotional level. Sheís a passionate, uninhibited woman that
hasnít allowed past hurts or her shady occupation to harden
her. As a team, this tough and passionate duo is
compatible, capable and adventurous. Youíll start to
believe that they were made for each other. I was engrossed
by this extremely racy, unconstrained sci-fi tale thatís
sure to melt your circuits. If Blade Runner had just
been a little more X-rated then The Love Machine
would be just as hot a ticket.
