Synopsis (Goodreads):
A cynical cyborg. A woman with too many secrets. A shared past that could tear them apart - or bring them together.

S-756 despises all humans, but he hates the scientists who tortured him and turned him into a cyborg most of all. The long years terraforming Mars have only cemented that hatred.

When his duty forces him to rescue an endangered scientist, he is shocked to discover that she is the alluring woman who betrayed him. No matter how much his long forgotten heart rejoices, he knows he can never trust her.

Addie paid a terrible price to save the man she loved. When she encounters him again, she is both thrilled and terrified. Her feelings towards the massive cyborg haven’t changed, but how can she explain what she did, especially when she has another secret to keep?

When a dark plot forces them to collaborate, can they move on from their tragic past and find a new future together?
Thoughts on A Fistful of Cyborg: Cyborgs, man. I'm completely digging these cybernetic men and the women who break through their walls and make them feel human again. Sure, sure, Sam and Addie had (maybe) more roadblocks than some of the other couples, but a cyborg wants what a cyborg wants and no amount of perceived betrayal is going to shut his heart off. Even if it's of the mechanical variety.

But it takes a while for Sam to reach the point where he's able to listen (and trust) Addie again. It's only after her story unfolds and he comes to understand why she did what she did that things start moving forward on the relationship front.

As for Addie, she bartered herself to save Sam and she's kind of a hot mess after the years of abuse she's endured. By that, I mean she's twitchy and slow to trust him with her secrets (and physical self, come to think). It takes time for her story to come out and her to believe they can have a chance again.

Things are moving forward on the planetary terraforming front (and the settler front, come to think of it), although *probably* not in the way anyone suspected. What does that mean for our cybernetic heroes? No idea. Only time will tell, I guess.
