Synopsis (Goodreads):
Green, a cyborg warrior, cares for one being—his plant Windy. When Windy becomes sick, he’ll do anything to heal her, even venture across the universe to visit a worlds-renowned plant doctor.

He doesn’t expect to find love.

Doctor Shelby Cooper is the sole resident of a tiny planet. She prefers to be alone rather than risk caring for another being and then losing him. The curvaceous scientist is determined to resist Green’s patient caresses, his thought-burning kisses, his slow seduction.

She has underestimated the power of a cyborg’s passion.
Thoughts on Being Green: The previous books I've read in this series have leaned toward the darker end of the spectrum. I enjoyed them, don't get me wrong. I'm just pointing out that this book is much more light-hearted. Much. No blood or death to be found.

Green is a gentle warrior. He's dedicated to the plant that helped him hold onto his sanity when he was forced to fight. He's NOTHING like Shelby imagined a cyborg to be. For her part, Shelby's caught in the past, but it's not necessarily in a bad way. The planet she's nurturing is testament to that. While her desire to run and hide from the rest of humanity has a few downsides (no contact with others wears on a person after a while, you know), she's the perfect foil to Green.

They're kinda ridiculously sweet together. I totally have a soft spot for abused cyborgs finding their happy place and this book hit the spot.
