My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Terms & Conditions Apply was a fun and sexy short story with an excellent twist ending! Marie, the heroine, is stranded on a pleasure planet after her boyfriend never shows up for their romantic weekend getaway. She’s beyond ticked off. Waiting for the next transport home, she’s approached by an android. Soren, the hero, might not be human but that doesn’t mean he doesn’t have feelings, dreams and emotions. He approaches Marie—sees how alone and sad she is—and is determined to fulfill her dreams. She’s hesitant to take him up on his offer to stay on the planet, not only because of being dumped but he’s not a real man. Despite being beyond gorgeous, how can a robot make her feel loved and wanted?
In a world where any fantasy can be reality…sometimes love has a price.
If you’re looking for a quick sci-fi read with a romantic element, this is the book for you! Loved how the heroine grew and changed throughout the story. And the ending… Wow! Definitely took me by surprise. Having read several of Pippa’s works, I love the way she blends science fiction with romance to create memorable characters that keep you turning the pages. A fantastic story!
A few of my favorite lines…
What business was it of theirs what she did? Freedom of choice was supposed to be the station’s credo.
Hades forbid anyone should ask her what was wrong.
For Marie, it was like someone carving out her heart with a blunt instrument.
Oh, please, she told herself, it’s not as if it’s a real man. Just a copy of one!
Why did she keep treating him like a prostitute instead of the man she believed she could see?
For a moment she forgot what he was. He felt human and alive.
