Synopsis (Goodreads):
One geeky neuroscientist sent to research the inmates of a prison asteroid.
Two cyborg criminals determined to free the inmates.
A forbidden romance among the stars.

Dr. Skylar Russo, a woman known for her research skills rather than her people skills, wants nothing more than to forget that her fiancĂ© left her at the altar. She’s vowed to focus on her career instead of men, even when that career sends her to the most inhospitable place imaginable. An asteroid prison in the middle of nowhere.

Worse than the location are the inmates she’s been sent to study. Former cyborg soldiers who couldn’t readjust to civilian society after the war ended. These enhanced men are physically and emotionally scarred, and no sane woman would want anything to do with them.

But when former warship captain Diego and combat sergeant Jerick kidnap her as part of their plan to free the prisoners, Skylar is wrapped up in a deadly adventure she never envisioned with two fierce cyborgs who should terrify her. But she finds herself drawn to Diego’s poetic soul and Jerick's hot muscled ferocity. She grows sympathetic to their plight and wants to help them, but she can’t do so without risking her career—and her life.

With four government warships on the way, Skylar will have to choose between what’s best for her... and what she wants with all her heart.

Unchained features two hunky heroes, one geeky heroine, and a forbidden romance that will irrevocably change their lives forever. If you don’t like the idea of threesomes finding a happily ever after together, please pass on this novel.
Thoughts on Unchained: MAN, I like Ruby Lionsdrake's books. They're sexy, a little over the top (in the best way!), and a lot fun.

This time around, we have an unsuspecting doctor who gets caught up in a rescue attempt and...well, she's not unsympathetic to Diego and Jerick's plight. I mean, she doesn't agree with how the cyborgs were treated as it is and she kinda has a thing for the two of them as things progress. A sexy, sexy thing. Rawr!

Anywho. It's not all sexy times and smoldering looks as the cyborgs work on taking over the prison. There's also a touch of danger, a few escape attempts (several of which succeed), and a plan that will take the cyborgs out of everyone's hair for good. You know, if everything falls into place and all conditions are met.

The sexy times in between were just a bonus for the guys. (And the doc. I mean, she was definitely into it.) I have to say, I'd be down with more shenanigans set in this world. Things are sticky, but Diego has a plan that could work out for everyone. I wouldn't mind seeing the background characters (I'm looking at you, Keiko) get a little action of the non-fighting variety.

Time will tell, I guess.
