March Morgan still believes in true love, but her faith in finding her soul mate is slowly vanishing.
She's been married but never in love. So, it is a miracle to find that fantasy exists on the last page of a glossy women's journal. Mayfair Electronics, Ltd., in black and white, offers Love for Sale. The London firm has engineered sentient androids indistinguishable from humans. She flies to England and meets the man she has been searching for her entire life.
Christian requires no programming to love March at first sight. He's handsome, cultured...absolutely perfect...and a little different from the other androids. He has an unexpected independent streak. March signs on the dotted line, buying her dream man. They return to Houston, but soon her past and his future threaten their happily ever after - indeed their lives.
I was intrigued by the interesting premise of this book. I usually go for more straight up sci-fi, but this is close... at least I don't think we have any sentient androids... yet, lol. The writing was smooth and the story interesting and easy to get lost in. There is a bit of everything here; action, romance, humor, and drama. I finished the book in a few days, which for me, is sign that I really liked it. The narrator is Scottish (she sounds a bit like Karen Gillan to me), and she is a bit rough at parts, but overall I think she does a good job. If you are a romance fan that likes your books a mixed lot with humor and action thrown in, then I would definitely recommend Love for Sale!
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
Well this story was so very different from what I was expecting, not in a bad way but because it was so much more than I thought it would be.
March is a woman who settled, she married a man she was not head over heels in love with thinking that their love would deepen, but it never did and one day she realised she was missing so much so she asked for a divorce from Paul her husband. After a year of being alone she sees an add in a magazine in her doctor’s waiting room offering Love for Sale and flies to England.
Once there she views the androids who can be programmed to be her lover/companion. They are all georgious but Christian has that little something more, it appears that there is a mutual attraction. She agrees to buy him and after a two week period during which she falls madly in love with him they both return home to the US to start their real lives together.
Unfortunately all does not go according to plan, they have an incredible connection, they love deeply and Christian is passing for human but problems back in England and with her jealous ex cause them to have to rethink their options.
There is so much happening, March is ill and Christian’s freedom is threatened, Is there something wrong with his programming? Or is it something more? Why arn’t Mayfair Electronics keeping to their agreement with March. I’d love to be able to say more but to do so would totally spoil the story.
What I can say is that there are lots of twists and turns to this story which I certainly didn’t see coming, it was well written, well read and I enjoyed it very much. I was given this book as a gift and am voluntarily writing my review.
Linda's books are just incredible this story was very very interesting and I loved it very much I couldn't imagine I will love the story so much but I did Linda has this special mannerism with words with feelings and I loved it very very much the concept of the book was very interesting and very special kind of a new way of thinking a very good book
