    *Starred Review* Kelly, a brilliant engineer, is not only great at designing robots but also has a real knack for programming practically perfect artificial intelligence. Unfortunately, her skills are not what she needs to fit in with her family, including a wedding-planning mother and a sister ready to walk down the aisle. Kelly has to find the perfect wedding date, and none of the match-ups orchestrated by family, friends, or websites are doing the job. She just doesn't have the time or patience to deal with this as she's all wrapped up in creating a companion-type robot to win a competition. Working overtime, she decides to turn her robot into a passable date for the wedding, and ends up using the profile of her dream man that she wrote for one of the dating sites, thus creating Ethan. He is the ideal man: kind, caring, thoughtful, gorgeous, and able to charm her mother as well as give Kelly the confidence she has always lacked. Readers who think they don't like romance and those who think they don't like science fiction may be astonished to discover themselves loving the combination in Archer's irresistible, unputdownable, comic, debut romance novel.
