Synopsis (Goodreads):
Matrix Roma is a member of the elite Zion military Cyborg Protection Unit. Matrix gets more than he bargains for when his cyborg partner, a hybrid Wolfhound named K-Nine, goes missing and ends up finding a mate for Matrix in the middle of a deadly mission on an unknown planet called Earth.
Thoughts on A Mate for Matrix: Okay. I liked this story, but the execution was a little sloppy. Like, things happened and I had to backtrack to see why or how it had. Which...I guess it didn't bother me all that much, but I noticed it. (If I'm remembering correctly, I think I had the same issue with another book by this author. Again, it wasn't enough to make me stop reading, but it was distracting.)

So. Matrix and K-Nine are sent to Earth to track down a creeping crawling bug-thing determined to make the planet its breeding ground. An accident puts K-Nine in Jana's gentle hands while Matrix searches for him. CUE SPARKS AND LINGERING LOOKS.

And kittens. Kittens play a pivotal role.

I did enjoy the story and I'm curious if the things hinted at by Matrix's mother are resolved in later books. Honestly, I think I liked K-Nine and his patience with the kittens the most.
