    I actually had so much fun reading this book I guess I'm only human There were bits that reminded me of Jane Austen's dry wit esp Kelly's parents and others that were clearly uncomplicated super relaxing chick lit and I loved this summer read for both its entertainment value and how close it made me feel to the protagonistLet's face it the robot boyfriend arc is kind of predictable it has to be which means that you can focus on the characters relationships and their evolution Kelly was just brilliant in her social awkwardness and willingness to learn from the data life is stubbornly providing her with The fact that I found her very relatable is something I'd need to reflect on Priya was another great character I was really glad that their friendship withstood the trials and tribulations of Kelly's brief and illuminating relationship with a robotAt the heart of the novel is Kelly's journey to understand herself Her lack of a wedding date at the ripe age of twenty nine didn't come out of blue it was deeply rooted in her fear of getting too close to somebody fear of ending up in a relationship where nobody talks about things that matter fear of indifference and giving in The way she chose to go about it was creating her ultimate version of a safety net a boyfriend that is programmed to love her unconditionally the way she is Eventually she does realise love isn't love where there is no free willA charming debut novel and a perfect summer read I'll be definitely looking forward to reading books from Sarah Archer in futureThank you to Edelweiss and GPPutnam's sons for the ARC provided in exchange for an honest opinionMy reviews can also be found on

    This is going to be short review Since I don’t have much to say about this book But I should start with saying that not every debut novel this year is working out for meI really loved the premise of the story BUTIt’s not easy to fall in love with a robot A character even a robot needs personality some kind of personality humor sarcasm or just plain weirdness But it needs something I can identify him with Being just a robot is not enough And that was part of the issueNot being able to fall in love with the hero is one thing not caring for the heroine is something altogether differentThe female character has to be likable since she often carries the overall story It’s hard to connect with her if she is being stereotyped socially awkward and nerdy and turns out to be just plain uninteresting I’ve read uite a few books about socially awkward characters Eleanor OVE Don – they all were expectational characters because the authors were dedicated on making them different but still relatableNevertheless Kelly grew as a person throughout the book which was something that gave the story depth and meaning Because even though I loved the idea of the premise it turned out to be a bit unrealistic and strange than expected And yes the outcome was predictable because Ethan was a robot it can only end one wayWhat I ended up enjoying the most about this book was Kelly’s family their interactions and love for each other That also confirmed that the author has potential I’m looking forward to seeing what she comes up nextARC generously provided in exchange for an honest reviewFind reviews and book recommendations on my blogFind me on Bookstagram

    About the fact that she really did still want to find the right guy in spite of all the bruises that come with cracking your heart from its exoskeleton About the growing suspicion that she couldn’t find the right guy because she wasn’t the right person Thank you Edelweiss and GP Putnam for the advance copy to review This review is voluntary and opinions are fully my own Buy This Book 📖 📚 Series No📚 Genre Sci Fi Romance📚 POV Third person📚 Cliffhanger No⚠ Content Warnings Self Esteem Issues Blackmail Engineering Stereotypes⚠ Read if you are fascinated with human robot relationshipsI have just finished reading this book and as I write this review I still have not fully decided whether I like this read or not It's crazy why I am at a loss to where I stand on this one The Plus One is the story of Kelly a robotics engineer who at a loss of finding a date to her sister's wedding used a prototype of her project Confibot and created Ethan the robot Ethan is a uniue and very realistic humanoid that is programmed to give care to people a la Baymax of Big Hero 6 He is a self teaching robot who can adapt to the mind and behavior of his owner Problems ensue when Kelly finds herself falling for him and Ethan as he is programmed reciprocates her feelings as wellThis book reminded me of Chobits a Japanese manga and anime that revolves around Chi a persocom or humanoid robotThe story was dependent on how the reader will feel toward Ethan I admit I like him but I was weirded out by the sex with robots part I mean you have to admit it's weird Also when it happened with no context and explanations was skipped in the book tooIt was hard to love the book because Kelly the main character was hard to love She comes of as unlikeable because she tends to look at herself so low and looking at others so low too I hate how much she was bearing grudges to her own family and extending to a tangled web of liesI was a bit meh with the ending but I guess it was a way to relay the overall message of the book which frankly is saying that this is not a romance This book is about Kelly learning to love herselfOverll I think the book was promising but failed to deliver likeable characters and interesting love story ☁ THE CRITERIA ☁🌻 Blurb⭐⭐⭐⭐✩🌻 Hero⭐⭐✩✩✩🌻 Heroine⭐⭐✩✩✩🌻 Support Characters⭐⭐⭐✩✩🌻 Writing Style⭐⭐⭐✩✩🌻 Character Development⭐⭐⭐✩✩🌻 Romance⭐⭐⭐✩✩🌻 Pacing⭐⭐⭐⭐✩🌻 Ending⭐⭐⭐✩✩🌻 Unputdownability⭐⭐⭐✩✩🌻 Book Cover⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ ☁FINAL VERDICT 3185 ☁ Review also appears on my blog

    35 stars maybe 375?Kelly is a robotics engineer She's smart and ready to go places with her career but her interpersonal skills aren't always the strongest She winds up making a mess out of her encounters with people even when she doesn't mean to Even her best friend Priya thinks she's socially awkward even though she knows Kelly means wellIt would be so much simpler if everyone could just do what she did and suppress their emotions stuffing them in the back of the closet right next to the childhood traumas and the performing in your third grade play naked and then all your teeth fall out dreamsThe problem is Kelly's younger sister is getting married and their mother a wedding consultant who owns a bridal shop is in absolute heaven as she plans and controls every aspect of the wedding This includes ensuring Kelly has a suitable date which is an issue of concern for her mother because Kelly's dating history is well shakyKelly doesn't uite understand all of the craziness surrounding her finding a wedding date She isn't all that interested in dating anyway But when a night of clubbing with Priya ends unsuccessfully although she met a handsome man who introduced her to his boyfriend and the latest blind date her mother arranged ends in disaster Kelly decides to take matters into her own hands—literallyUsing her engineering skills and the myriad different parts in the robotics lab Kelly builds herself a wedding date Ethan is incredibly handsome courteous caring and he grows intelligent with each interaction He is utterly devoted to Kelly and strangely she feels comfortable around him too Ethan charms those around him including Kelly's mother and no one suspects that he isn't humanEven though the plan is to disconnect him after her sister's wedding Kelly realizes she enjoys being with someone and having someone care about her even if he isn't real As her relationship with Ethan starts to interfere with her relationships and her job she knows she has to follow her original plan But she doesn't count on her mother's continued pressure and she's utterly unprepared for how she's falling for Ethan How can she simply take him apart when she cares about him so much?I thought this was an absolutely charming silly sweet book So many of us have felt the pressures Kelly did and although we might not have the intelligence or skills to engineer the same solution she did I definitely identified with a lot of the emotions she felt Sure I had to suspend my disbelief and I kept expecting everything to blow up but I really enjoyed the way Sarah Archer laid this story outHave you ever read a book or watched a movie where you knew everything was going to go awry and you were worried about what might happen but at the same time you couldn't look away? That's exactly how I felt reading The Plus One It almost felt like I was reading with my hands half over my eyesThis book brought a new fun twist to the rom com genre and I really enjoyed it If you can embrace the fun side of the book without delving too deeply into what's possible you'll definitely enjoy it tooSee all of my reviews at itseithersadnessoreuphoriablogspotcomCheck out my list of the best books I read in 2018 at You can follow me on Instagram at

    The biggest problem with this book is that it relies on the reader falling in love with Ethan Kelly's robot lover and so feeling the same angst as her over the impossibility of their romance I couldn't give less of a about Ethan He just never struck me as having a real personality He didn't have a sense of humour He had no hobbies or interests His entire being was literally crafted by Kelly It felt like I was reading a romance between a mother and her son because the author never made Ethan into a real distinct guy Also I'm not saying I want to read cyborg porn but come on Kelly has sex with a robot Surely an explanation of how she made that biologically possible isn't too much to ask for How does a robotic erection work? Did she give him semen? Can he orgasm? GIVE US THESE ANSWERSSo yeah since I never felt for Ethan at all I couldn't comprehend how Kelly would It just made her seem even pathetic desperate and lonely than she really was I'm not at all one to judge I'm hardly a social butterfly But Kelly just took it to ridiculous levels view spoilerThe blackmail plot also resolved itself far too easily Am I really supposed to believe that somebody with such juicy information on Kelly would go away that easily? hide spoiler

    The Plus One is a humorous story about a robotics engineer Kelly who has no luck in dating With her sister's wedding close and her mother matchmaking her with different people so she can have a date to the wedding Kelly decides to make a robot for a boyfriend to prove to her mother that she can get a date for herself As her personal and professional life are clashing Kelly has to decide what she wants a rising career or a robotic boyfriendI liked the plot The humor was just perfect I couldn't connect with Ethan I know he's a robot and all but he just had no emotion which is a vital point for me I liked Gary Kelly's brother than kelly herself I'd love to see him as a main characterI didn't like Kelly from the very beginning It felt like she was arrogant being a robotics engineer and looked down on people Though she did made herself slightly better as the story progressed so it was not as badI received an ARC from the publisher and am giving my own opinions

    I won this book in a Goodreads giveaway Honestly I’d give it 3 stars but this book has such low reviews that I bumped it up I can see some people really enjoying this while other night not It’s a rom com where the main character is weak and everything just somehow magically solves itself I think this would be better as a tv special than a book

    FYI The top shelf on GR on this book says it's a romance but it is not a romance novel This is a character arc story Romance is a topic in the novel but it is not a romance novel

    I was very apprehensive about this book due to some reviews but when have I seriously been deterred by reviews? I do like to give a book a chance The story follows Kelly a robotics engineer who is working on creating a revolutionary caregiver robot Kelly is socially awkward which honestlyrelatable She has a tough time with relationships and when she keeps getting pushed to find a date to her sisters wedding that will impress her family she decides to build herself the perfect date It goes better than she could have imagined and soon finds herself in way too deep This book suprised me and I ended up really enjoying it It was uite funny and uirky I literally laughed out loud many times and there were some feels definite nervousness and some heartache I think Kelly might come off unlikable to some but as someone who shares alot of personality traits with her I loved her She liked to lay on her couch in a snuggie watching Battlebots by herself on her day offme AF She also grows alot from beginning to end which was so heartwarming and leaves you with alot of hope I may or may not be in the minority here but I really enjoyed this book and am so glad I stumbled across it It was a fun fast read I dug it

    Y'all need Jesus was the main though as I was reading this book which is a lot for a non southern atheist to feel about a storyI was emailed by the publisher that I was pre approved for the arc of this book and as I was about to embark on an 8hr flight I downloaded it My thought process based off the cover looking like a cute rom com and my love of attending weddings sans plus ones The lesson to read the summary first was learned from this bookPlot twist this is a gender flipped retelling of Weird Science remember that pervy TV show I was likely too young to watch which was based on a movie I've never watched yeah Yay? I'm thrilled feminism has evolved to allow women to design their wish fulfillment robots now 2019 it's not just men that are creeps anyKelly is trash newsflash everyone is socially awkward maybe try calming down for a second and realizing you're a background player for strangers overhearing your social disasters and Ethan is Google in physical form to borrow from Shania that don't impress me much the internet was made a human right years ago so the search button is blase in the first worldIf the robot science process had been discussed like it is in Robin Sloane's Sourdough I might've been forgiving toward this story but it is like I 3D printed this and clicked this button and solved everythingThe background characters are interesting than Kelly and Ethan which is a bold choice for a book marketed as a rom com I do not recommend this story but the author does show potentialThank you to the publisher via Edelweiss for providing me with an e arc of this novel That did not influence my opinion in any way
