    1. 4.5 stars – Because I’m such a fan of good science fiction, M/M romances set within a sci-fi story always pique my interest. My experiences, though, have been a mixed bag, leaning generally toward my being disappointed, usually because they tend to be missing my favorite part about good sci-fi: its ability to veil some real-life social or moral dilemma within an alternate reality as a commentary about our own. But I love science fiction, so when I read the blurb for Built for Pleasure, by Th [...]

    2. ‘Built for Pleasure’ is a spellbinding story about the thin line between humans of the far future, homo sapiens sapiens, and the cyborgs they have designed, homo sapiens technica. The galaxy has been settled, driven by powerful corporations who were the only entities with enough money to escape a dying Earth. But the fundamental need for “servants” that humankind has displayed over millennia still exists, and to avoid having human servants, they have come up with a new idea. Take those w [...]

    3. I tend to be hit or miss with Euclid’s books and this selection fell right in the middle of that spectrum. Premise of the book is Homo sapiens sapiens used cyborgsHomo sapiens technica to initially colonize the galaxy and terraform planets in anticipation of leaving a ravaged and devastated Earth. Cyborgs paved the way, then were built to take on the hazardous tasks, and ultimately, to serve humans as objects of pleasure. Malcom “Mal” Torvik, black sheep of the Torvik family, ‘rehabilita [...]

    4. 4.5 starsWow, this turned out to be a lot more than its packaging suggested. I have to say that neither the title nor the (admittedly pretty) cover do the book justice.The first half of the book is a human/cyborg story. The cyborg, Wolf, was built for military use but later reprogrammed into a sexbot. He’s sent to Malcolm for correction of behavioral issues. Attraction ensues. This was what I was expecting from the naked-torso cover, and it was very well done: sexy, touching, and engaging.But [...]

    5. Malcolm Torvik rehabilitates disobedient pleasure cyborgs for a living and is known for being one of the best. That's how he ends up with WLF-6759, a cyborg that was originally intended to be a military cyborg but was retrofitted to become a pleasure cyborg. WLF-6759 is known to be one of the most disobedient cyborgs out there - he's killed 29 Peacekeepers (military men) at one time, and he's been passed along through several different owners because many want him but no one can control him. The [...]

    6. Disclosure: I adore Thursday personally and as a writing God. Built for Pleasure is a wonderful read. The world he creates is fascinating and before I wrote this I was begging via Facebook for another book. I love Wolf hard! The man is perfect and Thursday has captured being caught between two worlds but member of none in heartbreaking perfection. The sex scenes are all kinds of delicious. I highly recommend this book (& anything written by this author)

    7. A Joyfully Jay review. 3 starsMy review of Built for Pleasure happens to coincide with my recent obsession with HBO’s Westworld, which made for a delightful irony. Both the book and the show do an excellent job of questioning what it means to be human and the terrible things we do to those we see as less than human. And as our dependence on technology grows and advances in robotics and AI are rapidly progressing, I think the questions are becoming something more than fodder for sci-fi novels. [...]

    8. 3.5 stars rounded up.Sci-fi is one of my favorite genres, and there were things about this story that I loved and others not so much. Really enjoyed the set up and the first half of the book--was totally invested in their relationship up until their initial separation. I loved that Malcom was middle aged and that his mother, who was a key player in the story, was seventy! I love cyborgs and this brought up some interesting points about man and machine. The futuristic world building was adequate [...]

    9. It's hard to find good MM SciFi - and this is a great one. Wolf and Mal are really great characters and the understanding that Wolf is more than machine really is touching and so very human with emotion for the reader. There is no dwelling on the very bad things - they are largely off stage -- but they are there and pack an impact. It flows fast - and really if this was contemporary it would be 4 stars but the SciFi world building, though somewhat sparse at times, propels this one forward to tha [...]

    11. A hauntingly beautiful and poignant story, mired in a futuristic world drawn with loving care and a great flair for terse, evocative writing. Though the human protagonist evolves a good deal from the interesting and sensible yet cynical character he was at the beginning to become a truly layered great guy, something which is rare enough in sci-fi MM romances where the non-human love interest nigh constantly elicits all the attention of the writer, the lion's share of the emotion created by the n [...]

    12. Built for Pleasure by Thursday Euclid is an amazing read. I loved the originality of this story, and the chemistry. I really could not put this one down and wanted more when it was done. I would love to see a series in this world. I think it would be amazing to read.Malcolm he is a doctor of sorts for cyborgs. When they malfunction he is the one who repairs them. He lives and breaths his work. He doesn't really get along with his parents much. After all he is single, childless, and gay that pret [...]

    14. This book was different from what I was expecting. It could definitely be described as a sci-fi type book because it was definitely out of this world. Malcom in my opinion does what everyone tells him is the right thing to do. He does not try to stand out from others. He is a loner and spends most of his time with cyborgs. Malcom spends his time rebooting or rehabilitating cyborgs that have been used up or are malfunctioning. All of the cyborgs that he works on are pleasure slaves and not of the [...]

    15. *Copy provided to Bayou Book Junkie by Dreamspinner Press for my reading pleasure in hopes of an unbiased opinion, a review was not a requirement.*Malcolm Torvik, a retired military man, runs a rehab facility for malfunctioning pleasure cyborgs and he's the best at what he does. However, when a new cyborg arrives at the center to be recalibrated, all he thought he knew is put to the test by the gorgeous cyborg. WLF-6759 or as it prefers to be called, Wolf, is a military issued cyborg that was re [...]

    16. This is a story that I had a problem rating. I despised Malcolm from the very beginning and completely empathized with Wolf’s plight. A part of the issue was I couldn’t understand a society who would willingly take a people and draw a line about what was and wasn’t human. Malcolm had a superior attitude that grated. Even though his attitude changes as he comes to understand Wolf, I still held a sliver of dislike for Malcolm that I couldn’t get rid of.Wolf on the other hand I wanted to st [...]

    17. I received a free copy to read and review for wicked reads review team.I liked this book but felt it was a little slow to start. Wolf is a cyborg who is not supposed to have any real feelings, however as Malcolm comes to discover this is not true. Malcolm has been sent wolf to. "Fix" him as he is not behaving the way he is supposed to. Malcolm comes to realise there is something special about wolf. The last 20% of the book was really good as that's where the action was, wolf wants equal rights f [...]

    18. Built for Pleasure is a solid romance between retired military officer Malcolm and former battle cyborg now pleasure cyborg, Wolf. In overall I found the plot a bit short. Ending was a bit rushed and didn't feel complete. I liked Wolf, his thoughts were interesting, while reading his cruel fate, I couldn't take him as a machine, he was as much human as he could get. I'm looking for more!

    19. Built for PleasureWhat a wonderful book. Well written with great character background and world building. This is not an instant love. The characters are hurt and flawed. The love it built on hard work. I do hope to see a book two.

    21. Android romance set in a good sci-fi world. There's a lot of sexual violence in the android's past that is handled very blase which could be triggering for some readers.
