For a story about a woman with 180 IQ, curvy sexy body, a face that stops traffic, Josie has the emotional IQ of a child. She works with her doppelganger Matt/Marvin and doesn't realize that she has been working with the man of her dreams all along at the toy factory they design for. They are creating a robot that feels like, thinks like and acts like every woman's dreamboat man. This story had potential, this story in the hands of a better author could have been "a contender". But it started sinking by page 100, by the poor writing, bad plot developments and inexplicable twists and turns. Our hero, Matt/Marving has 180 IQ, body by Playgirl, the face of Adonis and the emotional IQ of a child. He has been working under an assumed identity so that he can recover his tarnished reputation as a premier scientist. They of course, fall into lust with each other, but hold back for no good reason other than the book has to introduce a subplot that is dumber than the worst sitcom you can imagine with Mafia bad guys and terrible dialogue. All is resolved, the major revelation that Matt/Marvin is in love with Josie (duh) and the science world finds out the truth about how wrong they were about Matt and ta da, it is over.
Waste of print, bad writing, poor plotting, predictable sex. Don't bother with this one.Reviews
Making Mr. Right! I'll sign up for this. Well that's what the heroine Josephine was going to do. She is a top scientist who has invented a plastic skin that is great for making life like toys, so why not make a man. She has dated all the pushy jerks that she can stand and now she wants the perfect man and she know just who can help her make him, Matthew Taylor. Matt is a genius robotic scientist. He can build anything and the chance to regain his crediblity was to hard for him to pass up. He soon realizes that Josie needs more than a plastic man, she needs him.He can't be perfect but he can show her how to love his imperfections.
Together they build the perfect man but they also build a lasting friendship and deep love for each other that will stand the test of time.
There are some wonderful secondary characters in this book that made me laugh so hard I cried. I would really recommend this book for an afternoon of lite reading, or if you are in a gloomy mood, it will bring a smile to your face.
I had a great time reading Midnight Kisses---enjoyable characters, great sex, and funny situations. Kudos for a great cover.
I bought this book because I like the premise that scientistscan fall in love, too . While the hero and heroine were,indeed, bona-fide lab-coat-wearing scientist-types, don't read this book expecting to learn something new about artificial intelligence or robotics--or even plastics, for that matter. Our intrepid couple are as reality-based as the absent-minded professor. That aside, the story was cute, with the misconceptions (of otherwise very clever people) ripped away in a satisfying manner. The only thing I found a bit icky was a character being massaged and otherwise 'serviced' by a robot. Granted, this was only mentioned in passing (sorry, no interesting salacious details) but I still felt some moral twinges. If it's a robot, is it sexual harassment? Is it fair to create artificial life for use as a toy? Do androids dream of electric sheep?
The description of this book was misleading. I was disappointed. I liked the concept but the book in itself was 'wordy'. I'm sorry but I did not care for this book.
