Red Cell, Book 1

Ex-Green Beret Victor “Cyke” Kellermann is on the run for a crime he didn’t—well, okay, did commit, but he didn’t realize it at the time. He’s a good guy, a “white hat” hacker for hire. He’s also more teched out than the Bionic Man, though his ailing ’ware creates as many problems as it solves.

His latest series of break-ins are proving…difficult. Sentinel Tech’s security is cutting-edge, and the cops are hounding his ass. He sees only one reason why his employer hasn’t called off the dogs: someone inside is stealing data for real and setting him up to take the fall.

Paramedic-cum-tech-phreak Bear keeps scooping an increasingly battered Cyke off the sidewalk, and each time, his fascination for the fugitive and his mysterious ’ware grows. So does the attraction that makes him reluctant to turn Cyke in. Every time they touch, barriers fall. Before long, they're both laid bare.

Cyke can handle losing blood, even losing consciousness. What he can’t afford is to lose his heart. Distractions like that get people killed—and if he succeeds in unlocking Sentinel Tech’s ugly secrets, he won’t be the only one in the line of fire. 
Product Warnings
This book contains mechanical eyeballs, multimillion-dollar hand warmers, pushy mind probes, a man too stubborn to quit when he’s bleeding, an underpaid paramedic whose services are needed entirely too often, and circuit-scorching cybersex…without a computer.

I Have been waiting for this book to be written for ages and I didn't even know it. Cyberpunk is my favorite genre(or is it a setting?) so that defiantly helped and is what made me buy the book in the first place. However there were a lot of things that made this book stick with me. The humor is subtle, which I appreciated, it even made me laugh out loud a time or two. I loved Bear and Cyke, their connection and attraction to each other was believable, and charming, without being overly predictable. And I cannot overstate how much I loved that while it was obvious that they cared for each other, they didn't immediately start spewing love confessions. For me "instaluv" is perhaps my number one problem with romances, and Break and Enter proved that is possible to have the connection between two characters be just as poignant(perhaps more so even) if the word love is not uttered. The other thing that made this book so wonderful is the fact that I cared just as much about what happened inside the bedroom, as what happened out of it. I have a weakness for well written technobable, so that was a bonus. I really cannot wait for more of this series.

First and foremost, this is an excellent cyberpunk story. Plus, there are extra hots! What's not to love? Well, I do wish it was longer...
