Three things are absolute.
1: Abigail Hart’s boyfriend is not human.
2: He wants her dead.
3. She has to kill him first.
The CIA’S Youth Intelligence Academy, YIA, taught Abigail one thing: Shoot to Kill. What they didn’t teach her was what to do, when her target catches her bullet and takes to the sky.
Abigail Hart had her future planned out: graduate YIA and become a CIA agent. What she didn’t plan was failing her Initiation Mission, getting kicked out of the academy, and falling in love with a boy who wanted her dead. Taught to trust no one, her first instinct is to shoot him, but when he redirects the bullet back to her, Abigail soon realizes there are worse people in the world than the YIA warned about. With her world falling apart, Abigail is forced, for her survival, to live by the code: Shoot first. Feel later.
Anthropomorphic Sentient Individualized Servile uniT
Rogan is a robot. More specifically, heisan Asist – a personalized humanoid servant that provides protection, assistance, and companionship for a lonely young woman living on her own in the city. Chloe is trying to get her big break, singing at bars and clubs all over the city at night while she pays the bills as a substitute teacher during the day. Ever since she activated him many months ago, Rogan has been her beautiful, dependable, obedient, dead-eyed security blanket.
One morning she is shocked when he disobeys a direct command in an attempt to please her and his dull artificial eyes flash a hint of something new. Is this the result of the adaptive Asist servility programming or is Rogan actually thinking? Can a robot think? Can a robot feel?
As Chloe struggles with these thoughts she is blind sided by the singular Niven Adams, a handsome, confident man with the voice of an angel who is everything she’s ever wanted in a boyfriend. He’s the perfect guy for her, except for one problem. Niven doesn’t approve of Asists and takes an immediate dislike to Rogan. As Niven charms his way deeper and deeper into Chloe’s heart, Rogan tries to convince her that he is more than a mass-produced disposable servant.
With Rogan doing everything in his power to prove that his thoughts and feelings are real and Niven trying to persuade her to abandon her robot and have a normal human relationship, Chloe is trapped between the two things that mean the most to her. Does she embrace her relationship with the blond newcomer, or face that her Asist’s feelings may be more than features of his programming?
What really makes a person a person?
Is it a ticking muscle inside their chest, or is it something more?

I’ve was thinking of The Lunar Chronicles when I read the synopsis of this book. Well, humanoid and android. I think what piques my interest here is how a human can be confused whether to love or not to love an android. I’m also intrigued by the fact that there is actually a love triangle inside this book.
I am taking that Rogan is the one featured in the cover… huh! A robot with a lip piercing.
I’m very excited to announce MyBookCushion’s first Cover Reveal! Cover Reveal: Butterfly Bones by Rebecca Carpenter. It’s been years since I hosted any tours, blitz and cover reveals and now moving from a blogger blog into a more professional ( hopefully), if not serious blogging environment I’m super happy to be doing this all over again.
Cover Reveal: Butterfly Bones by Rebecca Carpenter
Bethany should be dead, just like the doctors predicted.
But along came the butterflies, altering the order of nature.
And now nature is hell bent on revenge
. Because when fate’s path is disrupted,
it’s only a matter of time before balance must be restored.
Rebecca Carpenter is a native of western Colorado. She is married with two grown children and has been blessed with four amazing grandchildren. She owns and directs a large childcare center where she shares her love for books. In her spare time, she freelances as a copy editor, helping others attain their writing dreams. She finds solace and clarity while spending time with her husband exploring the beautiful mountains of Colorado.
Interesting, isn’t it? It kept me wondering about why it is called the butterfly bone? I wondered what’s up with the butterfly? What catches my attention to host this cover reveal? I found the book description very interesting. Talk about being dead only to find out you’re alive… again! Jon Snow wouldn’t be happy about it. ( Sorry. Not sorry, GOT fanatic here. ) Hopefully, no zombies here.
And as for the cover, hmm… I honestly didn’t like it that much but you know what they always say… “Never judge a book by its cover!” I am definitely adding this to my TBR list!
How about you did you like it? What cover reveal are you hosting today? =)
