She's made of more than you think...the heart-pounding second installment in the action and thrill-packed story of Mila 2.0. There is no one left for Mila to trust. Except for a boy she barely knows. With her mother gone, Hunter Lowe is the only person Mila can turn to for help, the only person who really cares about her. But he has no idea who - and what - Mila really is. She cannot bear to reveal her secret, and losing the last tie to her normal life just is not an option. But is Hunter who he seems to be, or is he hiding something too? The road to the truth is more dangerous than ever...

Debra Driza is a member of the teen lit blogging group the Bookanistas and a former practising physical therapist, who discovered tormenting her characters was infinitely more enjoyable. These days you can find her at home in California, adding random colours to her hair and wrangling one husband, two kids, and an assortment of Rhodesian Ridgebacks. Mila 2.0 was her first novel and Renegade continues Mila's adventure.

I wanted to read Renegade because I enjoyed the first book, and wanted to continue with the series. I don't remember much about Mila 2.0 except I liked Mila and her struggle with discovering she isn't human. I remember liking the action, plot as well as wishing she would pick a guy and really fall for him, and by synopsis of Renegade, it seems like it may be Hunter.
Renegade starts out slowly and with Mila and Hunter on the road. Traveling aspects of books can sometimes be hard for me and I think that might play into it as well as not having time to reread the first. We get a decent recap without feeling like an info dump, but I still felt a little lost, and I was getting dejavu from Hunted by Kade because of the not completely human aspect, betrayals by parents and off to hide or find someone with a boy.
I got through that though, and remembered why I liked Mila. She's strong and analytic, but she still has a lot of feelings. She ends up not telling the whole truth to Hunter because she is afraid and also trying to protect him, but she keeps doing little things to give him clues that something more is going on that he doesn't know about. He is a strong presence for her, giving her comfort, joking with her, and generally keeping her company, making her feel like someone is in her corner. They have a chemistry and a lot of tension because they are taking things slowly and every time they dated in the first book something went wrong and interrupted them and now she is on high alert.
There were done unexpected twists and I was doubting someone that I never thought I would. There were also people involved that I never would have guessed. This made the last half really fly by because I had to see what surprises I would find next. Out is revealed more about Mila and how she works as well as how she was made and get purpose. Though part of the big reveal tho Mila herself I guessed pretty early on butt I don't know I'd that was the point.
The ending raced to a dramatic conclusion and one he'll of a cliff hanger. It was one of those moments wee you are sure the author just left out about one hundred or so pages because you can't leave a reader in suspense like that. I will definitely be reading the next in the series tho find plot more about Mila, about Hunter and his reaction to dating an android as well as Lucas who made a last minute appearance.
Bottom Line: good second book: surprises, romance and action.

MilaÃ?Â¢??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 sheÃ?Â¢??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 naÃ??Ã?Â¯ve in this book. Even though sheÃ?Â¢??d realised what she was, and realised that she was capable of defending herself as well as other stuff, her decisions werenÃ?Â¢??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 wasnÃ?Â¢??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 couldnÃ?Â¢??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 wasnÃ?Â¢??t honest with Hunter, and the romance wasnÃ?Â¢??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.
