Release Date: December 3, 2019
Trinity Jordan leads a quiet, normal life: working from home for the Hive, a multifunctional government research center, and recovering from the incident that sent her into a tailspin. But the life she’s trying to rebuild is plagued by mishaps when Li Wei, her neighbor’s super sexy and super strange nephew, moves in and turns things upside down. Li Wei’s behavior is downright odd—and the attraction building between them is even more so. When an emergency pulls his aunt away from the apartment complex, Trinity decides to keep an eye on him…and slowly discovers that nothing is what it seems.
For one thing, Li Wei isn’t just the hot guy next door—he’s the hot A.I. next door. In fact, he’s so advanced that he blurs the line between man and machine. It’s up to Trinity to help him achieve his objective of learning to be human, but danger is mounting as they figure out whether he’s capable of the most illogical human behavior of all…falling in love.
I’ve been turning to audiobooks quite often this year! They’re super helpful in the evening when I’m too exhausted to read a book, yet still want to enjoy a good story! The A.I. Who Loved Me was one of these books that kept me interested, especially when I wanted to have something entertaining to listen to before bed!
The A.I. Who Loved Me follows Trinity as she’s making every attempt to recover from her injuries, while tending to her neighbor’s nephew who has an interesting back story himself! The chemistry between Trinity and Li Wei was pretty vibrant, as Trinity’s fight to control her risings feelings paired with Li Wei’s struggle to understand human nature kept me interested! I also loved the diverse cast of characters in the story. Being someone with a Hispanic background, I love reading books with characters having different ethnic backgrounds!
This story was also heavy on the romance, and while Romance books are usually not my ‘go-to’ genre, I loved listening to the relationship evolve into an exciting love story. And the romantic buildup kept me listening!
The story is set in a futuristic timeline, where A.I. (artificial intelligence) is a part of everyone’s work, home, and social existence. Artificial intelligence as a mode for therapy and friendship is pretty common in this world, and both Trinity and Li Wei discover many details about their healing journeys through this system.
I recommend The A.I. Who Loved Me for those who enjoy ‘hate-to-love’ romance stories. If you love a quick, romantic audiobook with diverse characters, you will love this story!
