A robot with three strikes against her is one returned by three owners and a candidate for mind erasure and reprogramming to correct whatever perceived flaws keep causing her to be brought back. The robot, despite any wishes to the contrary she might have in the matter, has little in the way of options to avoid this fate, even when it's hardly her fault that she was returned in this manner.
Three Strikes Against Her tells the story of how the adventure of buying a used fembot turns out to be more than either the purchaser—or the fembot—expected after the fembot in question takes matters into her own hands to avoid an otherwise unpleasant fate in store for her. (Note to buyers: This story is also contained in the anthology: The Fembot Chronicles—Volume 1, available in e-book and print. In the same way that iTunes sells individual tracks off of an album, individual stories are available without the need to buy the entire anthology.)
Warnings: This title contains sex with robots including coerced sex.
Greg is looking for a companion.
Sharon is a Fembot.
I cannot express how much I truly enjoyed this story. Seriously. It was non-stop from the first sentence to the end. I should have been working instead of reading this story but I couldn’t put it down.
Greg comes in to buy a robot and he meets the Fembot, Sharon, who is the ideal woman: beautiful, kind, sexy and highly intelligent. Sharon, however, is considered used goods and is facing a death sentence if she is not sold.
While “selling” herself to Greg, Sharon tells her story in a series of flashbacks from her previous owners to a tryst with a Dominant robot named Nick who is just as perfect as the bad guy. Shades of Pretty Woman came to mind while I was reading this. I just loved it.
This story was very well written and very entertaining. Sharon is engaging as the Fembot who only wants to be loved and Greg is the Knight-In-Shining-Armor that comes into her life at just the right moment.
