Review: Being Green by Cynthia Sax

Reviewed by Jen

I flew through this short little story in about 30 minutes during my lunch break. Though it was published fifth in the Cyborg Sizzle series, I saw that it is designed it to be read after the first full length novel, so here I am.

It was… ok. The hero is Green, the cyborg with an attachment to his plant, Windy. His heroine, Shelby, is a botanist who is the only person who lives on a tiny planet dedicated to various flowers and plants. She has cut herself off because everyone she has ever loved has been killed and she is trying to protect herself from future pain.

To call this insta love would not do the speed in which these to find their way together justice. Green had decided Shelby was his female before he even laid eyes on her. And she was fantasizing about him based on email exchanges as well. You’ve Just got to go with it.

Though I understand Green has led a terrible life with very little light in it, his attachment to his plant was a little weird for me. There’s nothing really in the way of character development or a chance to really invest in the romance. But it was a quick and otherwise entertaining read. A free supplemental for the series. Kind of like bonus material.

(A tiny review for a tiny novella.) I’m still not sure how I feel about the series.
