Fans of Delilah Devlin know exactly what to expect when settling in for one of her stories, and The Pleasure Bot was an entertaining read. At 136 pages, the fourth book in her Planet Desire series is definitely a novella in length. For erotic romance readers who prefer a story at the heart of their super steamy action, this author provides a humorous tale. I think my favorite character in this tale was the artificial intelligence that orchestrated the robotic (or not so robotic) hookup.
The world built around the story was interesting, a combination of futuristic and space travel concepts wrapped around a human woman who is used to calling the shots and a human man who is always in charge. One is a law abiding citizen, and the other considers the laws to be more of a suggestion. What starts out as a roleplaying weekend turns into something more intense as both parties realize that they may have stumbled on to a connection that they are reluctant to leave behind. Anything worth having will require sacrifice, though, and someone will have to give up their entire way of life in order for the unlikely pair to stay together.

Priscilla Potter rents the latest sex toy, a better-than-lifelike pleasure robot, for a little weekend R&R. However, her fantasy companion isn’t quite what she expected. He’s unshaven, uncouth, and doesn’t seem to understand she’s in charge of her own pleasure. But she soon decides the on-line shop got the order just right. As the weekend draws to a close, she has to find a way to keep her robot past its return date.
Bootlegging “entrepreneur” Declan O’Hanlon needs a place to lay low until he can figure out how to liberate his crew and ship from Customs impound. The “uninhabited” house he picks for his hideout actually belongs to a sex kitten who mistakes him for her latest toy. Intrigued by the idea of being a woman’s fantasy come true, Declan does what any red-blooded man would do–he pretends to be her acquisition. But he doesn’t count on Priss being quite so irresistible. As the time depart nears he wonders how he can ever leave her behind.
