Leah is a successful executive who’s devoted everything to her career, only to find that success feels empty without someone to share it. When she gets a message advertising a sophisticated artificial human companion designed for intimate situations, she’s intrigued. Not that she thinks it’s a long-term solution, but loneliness drives her curiosity. After all, satisfaction is guaranteed.
When he arrives he’s so much more than she anticipated. She could never have never imagined that an artificial man would be the one to show her what is important in life.
Unfortunately, the world won’t tolerate perfection.
“A retelling of the original Viral Trilogy, McConnell has condensed, distilled, and masterfully rewritten the original story beautifully.”
If you enjoyed the original series, you will appreciate the tweaks to the storyline. If you haven’t read any of the Viral books, you’re in for a treat.
From the back cover:
The world has become a place of comfort, where a shopping trip means heading to the first floor to collect new food tubes for the printer. Menial tasks, like cleaning up or cooking, are relegated to robots, and Robert’s job while finishing school is to maintain them. With only three classes remaining, he’s hoping for something better.
Then everything starts to glitch:
the robots, the building, and even the people.
What starts as glitchy videos, misbehaving touch-screens, and random fighting, grows into a race against time to fix the problem before it escalates. Maybe he can land a cushy programming job in the process, but this virus is more than it appears…
More believable than iRobot, more grounded than most over-the-top scifi novels, this book takes place in a high-tech future that might be closer than you think.
Things are heating up in San Francisco for Aspen Adams this summer.
Fresh out of graduate school, she’s starting the next chapter of her life. In a brand new city, with an amazing apartment and a great new job, everything is under control.
All she needs to do is not break any of the ridiculous rules in her lease agreement, help get her best friend through some nasty relationship drama, and stick to her plan…no relationships for at least a year. Easy. Or at least it would be if she could figure out why her heart skips a beat every time she sees her hot new neighbor.
Handsome, funny and always around right when she needs him, the guy next door is like a knight in shining armor. And the tousled hair and sexy glasses don’t hurt either. But while Finn seems like the perfect man, Aspen can’t help but wonder if he’s too good to be true.
When it really counts… can she count on him? Or is Finn using his good guy image to hide the truth?
