Epsilon by PMJ Downing
Sci fi, erotica
TBR Reviewer: Brutally Honest
Mila’s space ship crashes and she stuck on a desolate planet with naught but her robot and fingers to keep her company.
Mila is a great character and she had me wondering about Harry’s attributes with her as the story progresses. Mila is getting board with her fingers until she finds a sonic screwdriver. That was hysterical and a fantastic idea. Then Mila and Harry come across an entity. Now that was interesting and freaking hot. I’ve never read a scene with an invisible entity making a woman climax. As the story continues it gets better and better. So good, that I was completely engrossed and utterly in love with Harry and Mila! I really liked the way it ended. I won’t tell you how but it really worked.
Now after that you’re probably saying why not five shiny stars. What made me frown was the sex scene, there was a point where Mila was shaking with arousal and excitement. Come on, shaking? Trembling? Her hands could barely hit a button that made Harry, the robot’s penis come out. That was too farfetched and ridiculous. It almost makes me wonder if this is a male writer but this could also be the author’s first book. Either way, it was an issue.
I still highly recommend this novella. Epsilion was a hot, unique read that gave me a completely new perspective on robots.
