The Mech Who Loved Me (London Steampunk: The Blue Blood Conspiracy Book 2) Kindle Edition
Blue bloods are dying from a mysterious disease, which should be impossible. Ava suspects there's more to the case than meets the eye and wants a chance to prove herself. There’s just one catch—she’s ordered to partner with the sexy mech, Kincaid, who's a constant thorn in her side. Kincaid thinks the only good blue blood is a dead one. He's also the very last man she would ever give her heart to… which makes him the perfect candidate for an affair.
The only rule? It ends when the case does.
But when an attempt on her life proves that Ava might be onto something, the only one who can protect her is Kincaid. Suddenly the greatest risk is not to their hearts, but whether they can survive a diabolical plot that threatens to destroy every blue blood in London—including Ava.
THE MECH WHO LOVED ME is the second book in Bec McMaster's action-packed The Blue Blood Conspiracy series, featuring a group of spies fighting to get to the heart of a dangerous conspiracy. If a steamy romance between a devilish rogue (with an aversion to marriage) and a virginal spinster (who would like to relieve herself of at least one of those titles) sounds right up your alley, then enjoy the journey with Ava and Kincaid.

Liam Kincaid is a mech, with a massive artificial fist to go with the massive chip on his shoulder regarding Blue Bloods. He isn't the smartest guy on the team, or the fastest, and due to his human status, he might be one of the most vulnerable. However, he does have an equally massive heart that beats beneath the rough and gruff exterior. In my mind's eye, I see a bigger, taller Russell Crowe, a la Gladiator, rather than the urbane skinny boy on the cover.
Ava McLaren is smart and brave and slowly overcoming the horror of her torture at the hands of a crazy scientist. Her brain is continually sidetracked by the man she can hardly believe she has an itch for - her temporary bodyguard in fieldwork, Kincaid. I loved that she is so smart and intuitive with the science part of this steampunk world. I also greatly enjoyed how protective the Company of Rogues were of the brainy yet delicate woman in their midst. She is their heart, and McMaster does an excellent job of staging Ava's sense of hope and how important it is to the team. Unlike many romance authors, McMaster never has her women hating on one another, and the ladies in the recently formed COR are a special blend of new friends and support, and this aspect really develops in the second novel in this series. There are still moments where the ladies are getting to know one another, but you can tell they are going to be forever-sisters.
The action and romance are exciting, and given the personalities of Ava and Kincaid, I thought the love story progressed in an amusing yet expected way. Tie in poison and bombs and cutting-edge mech suits and it is a glut of exhilarating exploits. I couldn't get to the next book fast enough.
I picked this book up because of the qualities of the first. This book is straight up steampunk with a large dose of romance and erotica to move it along. I wasn't prepared for that. I don't mind erotica, but romance is not really my thing. That said, this was a really enjoying read and I'm picking up the third book as I've become attached to these characters.
The romance that blooms here wasn't all that unlikely coming off the first book. We find Ava who's a blueblood that doesn't drink blood, instead she's created a serum to stave off the craving. She's a crime scene investigator, and a bookworm who is also quite innocent in the ways of the world. Because she works with a collection of people who have lived or are living very roguish lives they all try to protect her.
Though the cover of the book makes Kincaid look like a normal sized man, he's described as a bulging hulk of a human with a mech hand. He's assigned to assist Ava on an investigation and he hates bluebloods. Due to her innocence and demeanor he falls for her despite his hatred of bluebloods.
Together they investigate the murders of bluebloods and discover a poison that can kill them and the who's and why's. It's a roller coaster and quite a bit of fun reading.
In the end however, the man behind the scenes pulling the strings becomes very obvious, though the line cast into the river that is book three was unexpected.
Great story,believable romance with a good slow natural feeling build,....loved it!! Would have loved more of them as a couple but I'm now excited to go back and see what I've missed and see what in store fir Gemma...
I' just hope there's a book about Malloryn's love life at some point ... he too fascinating to pass up... Honestly I was little disappointed at who the bad guy pulling the strings in the "background " seemed a lil to pay/easy and sad ( there was a chance to have kept him for ever being this huge threat if only Mal had be allowed to do what he'd wanted at one time ,sighs but I love what I read here and already have the books to read more, laughs catching them on deals not knowing they were connected ;)
Loving me some steampunk ....
Thank you for the wonderful read ...
