Blurb (from Goodreads):
There is no one left for Mila to trust. Except for a boy she barely knows.

But Hunter has no idea who—and what—Mila really is. She can’t bear to reveal her secret, even though he’s unwittingly joined her search for Richard Grady, a man who may know more details of Mila’s complicated past.

Yet the road to the truth is more dangerous than ever. With General Holland and the Vita Obscura scouring the earth for her whereabouts, Mila must rely on her newfound android abilities to protect herself and Hunter from imminent harm. Still, embracing her identity as a machine leads her to question the state of her humanity—as well as Hunter’s real motives.

Perfect for fans of I Am Number Four and Divergent, this action-packed and heart-wrenching second installment of MILA 2.0 will leave readers breathlessly awaiting the series conclusion.

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

Mila’s mother is dead, the company that created her want her back, and the only person she has to rely on is Hunter, someone she barely knows, who oh yes, has no idea that she’s really an android.
Can Mila find the man that her mother claimed would help her? And what will Hunter think when he discovers the truth?

This was an okay story, but it dragged.

Mila was once again a little na├»ve in this book. Even though she’d realised what she was, and realised that she was capable of defending herself as well as other stuff, her decisions weren’t always all that intelligent. I also got really annoyed at the way she had dragged Hunter hundreds of miles across the country, but still wasn’t being honest with him.

The storyline in this did have some action, but it just dragged for me, and I found it really hard to keep paying attention, and to not just put this down. There were a couple of twists, but again, I just couldn’t get excited over them, and again, some things were just unbelievable.
There was a bit of romance, but again I was annoyed at the way Mila wasn’t honest with Hunter, and the romance wasn’t particularly good to be honest.
The ending was okay, but we were left with a big, and pretty unoriginal cliff-hanger, that just made me roll my eyes.
Overall; okay story, but dragged,
6 out of 10.
