C791 by Eve Langlais

Synopisis via Barnes and Noble:
Machines aren't supposed to feel, but this cyborg can't help falling in love.
Assigned as a specimen collector for a captured cyborg, Chloe is intrigued by the machine disguised as a man. Kidnapped during his daring escape, he shows her that despite the chip in his brain, his humanity is not completely lost.Formerly known as unit X109GI, Joe is on a quest to discover his origin. While he doesn't find the answers he's looking for, he does discover that affection and lust aren't just for humans. But when it comes to a battle between logic and love, which side will the cybernetic organism-once a man-choose?Evaluating his feelings will have to wait though because the military isn't done with Joe. But their threats against him pale in comparison before the shocking discovery of project C791, the revelation of which stuns the rebel cyborgs-and ignites a fury for vengeance.

This was one book that  I could not finish. Now, I don't like to write bad reviews, but unfortunately, this was a bad book.
As any of you who have read my other reviews  know, I do not shy away from erotica. As a matter of fact, a few of my favorite authors write erotica. So what is the difference? I am glad you asked.

C791 is a book that reads and feels like the author had sex on her brain and tried to write a story around her fantasies. The story became so bad, that I would try to skip over the sex and try to find a story somewhere amongst the words. Alas, there really wasn't one.
If all you want is gratuitous sex, well, this is definitely for you. If you require a story to go along with the sex, keep looking.
