Pleasure is not a malfunction.
The DMA Files, Book 1.
Coral-600 is the first and only one of her kind. An artificial intelligence prototype with realistic skin over her metal frame, she was deemed too expensive for mass production and gifted to the royal family.
She cannot legally have a relationship with a human, and it never entered her electronic brain to want more—to break the law. Until she meets Quinn, and her DNA-enhanced skin tingles with a completely new sensation. Desire.
His body damaged beyond repair in the war, Quinn survived—barely—by agreeing to have much of it rebuilt. His royal relatives have taken him in, but it’s tough adjusting to a body that doesn’t come with instructions.
As Coral helps Quinn cope with his new body, the connection between them reaches the melt-down point. But unless she can convince the authorities that humanity runs deeper than flesh and bone, she’ll have her CPU wiped clean—permanently.
Warning: This book contains artificial and natural flavors, lubricant (lots and lots of lubricant), and fun with oh-so-hard drives.

Let’s face it Sci-fi romance is not for everyone; it is an acquired taste. I, for one, have never been a huge fan of the sci-fi genre. I will read paranormal romance left and right but when given robots, aliens, and the like it kind of puts me off. With that being said I loved Coral-600. There was just something unique and fascinating by how human like Coral had acted; despite how robotic she sounded. What was even better was the transformation you witness her go through where she realizes that she is so much more than just a mechanic.
This story is about self-discovery and paving the way for future humanoids who are so much more than robots. Coral-600 has been with the royal family for many, many years and is pretty much left alone in the palace. She has befriended a fellow maid, who is human, named Paisley. Paisley thinks Coral needs to assimilate more because she believes that Coral is so much more human than what everyone believes. Quinn is part of the royal family who has come back from war more mechanic than human. He feels all alone and needs help getting situated in his new body. He seeks out Coral who is now so much more than she seems and very blunt and comfortable in her own skin.
I cannot believe how addicted I became to the characters. Each character was well developed and had a great transformation into the people they want to be. What I loved best about this book was how Coral talked. She did not understand that certain things should not be discussed in public or certain ways she phrased things. You can tell that she was first a machine but adapted into so much more.
If you are like me and on the fence about sci-fi romance definitely pick this one up as it is a good intro into the genre. I am so excited for the next book, Interlocking Hearts.
I was given a copy of this book as a gift from the JeepDiva in exchange for an honest review. The opinions and ratings are my own and I was in no way compensated for my review.
