There are three things you need to know about Marie Harris: 
1) She’s fed up with online dating, 
2) She’s so fed up, she’s willing to forego the annoyance and consider more creative alternatives, and 
3) She knows how to knit.

After the most bizarre and irritating first date in the history of human kind, Marie is looking for an alternative to men. With the help of her friends, she quickly identifies a few possibilities:

Need a cuddle? Use a professional cuddler. Need affirmation? Get yourself a life coach. Need an orgasm? Try orgasm meditation! Why does she need the hassle of a romantic partner when she can meet all her needs with paid services?
But then her irritating date resurfaces. And he’s not at all the person she thought he was. And he suggests a different—and crazier—solution to her dilemma . . .
As everyone knows (or will soon come to realize), traditional relations between humans are a thing of the past. Robots are our future. And if robots are our future, then why do we need other people at all?

Maria’s Review

➦I finally picked up a book in this series. Starting with #6, people. But no worries, I will certainly be reading all of this, or listening on audio, rather. I enjoy Penny Reid’s sense of humor and she’s quickly becoming one of my favorite romcom authors. 

➦So, who hasn’t tried online dating? God, the horrors, right? 

➦What if we could eliminate this whole dating nonsense and just, I don’t know, buy a nice companion robot? It sounds like bs but there might be something to it and that’s what the reporter heroine of this book sets out to investigate with a help of one grumpy AI specialist. He doesn’t really want to help her, but nothing that a little blackmail can’t fix.

➦Listen, I won’t go too much into the plot, I think I’ve revealed enough, but if you’re looking for a fun and sexy romance with an enemies to lovers trope, then this is definitely it. It has a lot of computer nerdy humor and even some knowledgeable facts so you might even learn a thing or two about technology! 😀 I didn’t, but I’m married to an AI geek, so there’s that. And yes those can come with a great set of buns/biceps. lol
