How to Build a Boyfriend from Scratch

by Sarah Archer

How to Build a Boyfriend from Scratch Synopsis

'Refreshing and fun' Debbie Johnson 'Thoroughly entertaining' Love Reading 'You will end up wondering if robotic boyfriends might be better than trawling through Tinder' Heat 'Romantic, intriguing and absolutely hilarious' The Courier 'A fresh take on a common romance plot and we love it' Yahoo's Top Books for March Dating is hard. Being dateless at your perfect sister's wedding is harder. Meet Kelly. A brilliant but socially awkward robotics engineer desperately seeking a wedding date... Meet Ethan. Intelligent, gorgeous, brings out the confidence Kelly didn't know she had and ... not technically human. (But no one needs to know that.) With her sister's wedding looming and everyone in the world on her case about being perpetually single, Kelly decides to take her love life into her own hands - and use her genius skills to create Ethan. But when she can't resist keeping her new boy toy around even after the 'I do's', Kelly knows she needs to hit the off switch on this romance, fast. Only, when you've found (well, made) your perfect man, how do you kiss him goodbye? Readers love this book! 'Funny, lighthearted, joyous, romantic and fun...really awesome' Karen W, Netgalley 'Reminded me a lot of Jane Austen's dry humour...super relaxing summer read' Sophie G, Netgalley 'Charming...An ideal read for a summer day' Petra Q, Netgalley
