Book Shelf: The Mech Who Loved Me (London Steampunk: The Blue Blood Conspiracy #2) by Bec McMaster

Ava McLaren is tired of being both a virgin, and a mere laboratory assistant for the Company of Rogues. When a baffling mystery rears its head, it presents her with the opportunity to work a real case... and perhaps get a taste of the passion that eludes her.

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 instalment in the London Steampunk: The Blue Blood Conspiracy series and is another deeply passionate and beguiling romance featuring two fantastic leads and a love story that will ignite your blood.

Ava McLaren is tired of being both a virgin and a mere laboratory assistant for the Company of Rogues. After surviving the experiments of a mad-man, Ava has put all the efforts into controlling her new status as a blue blood but that has left little time for love or relationships. Given that the man she thought she wanted has recently married another, Ava is more determined than ever she to discover passion. If only she could find the right man to conduct her experiment with. Liam Kincaid is a mech who despises blue bloods. He’d rather kill them than work with them but as a member of the Company of Rogues he has recently been spending a lot of time with them—-and they’re not all as bad as he’d thought. Kincaid is a thorn in Ava’s side but there’s no denying the sensual and capable mech might be just what she’s looking for. Will Ava be able to convince Kincaid to let go of his hatred to give her a few nights of passion? Or will this affair become more than just a joining of bodies? Will it become a joining of their hearts?

I honestly feel that Bec McMaster’s novels seem to be getting better and better with each release. I’ve loved them all but I think that The Mech Who Loved Me is quite possibly my favourite so far—Ava and Kincaid’s story is simply that good! Continuing to follow the Company of Rogues, The Mech Who Loved Me sees Malloryn’s group of specifically selected individuals investing a new batch of mysterious deaths with Ava and Kincaid paired together to investigate the bodies.

Malloryn is quickly becoming a reluctant Cupid—first pairing Byrnes and Ingrid together and now Ava and Kincaid with electric results. Bec McMaster is wonderfully developing this next stage of her world as the characters navigate their lives after the revolution and face new threats to their fragile time of peace. I’m enjoying seeing old characters and new and discovering new elements of this steampunk world.

I absolutely adored Ava and Kincaid. I felt McMaster wrote Ava with so much dignity and grace and explored her residual feelings for Byrnes respectfully and without needing to resort to pettiness. Ava was genuinely happy for her friends Byrnes and Ingrid and it was highly enjoyable seeing her discover her own happiness. Ava has been through so much and experienced so much pain that she very much deserved to be treated and adored the way Kincaid treated and adored her.

Kincaid was very sexy as a formable mech with a dislike towards blue bloods but who couldn’t help but be drawn to Ava. An incorrigible ladies man in the past, Kincaid was sexual and passionate but I enjoyed that once he set his eyes on Ava she was the only one he saw. I enjoyed seeing his softer sides and the tender way he viewed her while also being her champion when both she and others doubted her.

Fiery and passionate with sexual undertones and a great storyline, The Mech Who Loved Me was a brilliant read and leaves me ready to discover what Bec McMaster has planned next!
