She’s Like a Virgin . . . Simulated for the Very First Time
For a red-blooded male, Las Vegas offers a virtual smorgasbord of temptation: sexy showgirls, vampy vampires, zombie starlets, you name it. But paranormal investigator Delilah Street isn’t worried about losing her man to these vixens. Especially when the one woman with a soft spot for the guy also has a hard-shelled exterior. . . .
She’s a robot—or a CinSim, to be exact—a near-perfect simulation of the silver-metal robot Maria from the classic science fiction movie Metropolis. Part innocent teenage actress, part depraved sex goddess, the new Maria is hooked on Delilah’s partner, Ric, who raised her from the dead. She also happens to be the perfect secret weapon for a demonic drug lord. Which could be one hell of a problem. Delilah’s not the jealous type, but this tin-can temptress must be stopped—even if it forces Delilah to forge a dangerous alliance with her wicked mirror-twin, Lilith. If robo-girl goes ballistic, every player in Vegas loses. . . .
This is the fifth book in the series. Unfortunately, it is definitely a series where you need to start from earlier on. There were so many characters coming and going that I was completely lost at times.
There also seemed to be tons of subplots. And not having any backstory just caused me even more confusion.
It seemed like an interesting story what I could understand of it though. However, since I kept getting lost and having to reread things to see if maybe I just missed something in this book that I really had to just put it down and walk away from it.
I plan on maybe going back and getting the first book in the series to see if that is enjoyable. If it is, then I will read through them until I get up to this book. Hopefully, I will understand what is going on much better by reading the prior books.
This is definitely not a book that can stand alone on its own merits.
