The perfect woman. Isn’t that what every man wants?
Alan’s been on one date after another, and none of them have worked out. Apparently being a scientist isn’t the most sought after quality in the dating world. He’s never had any inappropriate thoughts about the android he’s been working on at his day job. That is, until she starts flirting with him.
He programmed the unit to have lifelike qualities, but this was far beyond what he intended. Now the robot he helped create wears tight-fitting outfits, revealing robes, and tries in every way to catch his eye.
He considers himself a man of integrity, but there’s only so much he can take.

Goes down as another off my 2018 Bookworm Bingo Challenge – A book with a person’s name in the title.
An interesting story showing an awakening of a different kind with the introduction of a realistic female robot beginning to learn and want to please her master. Alan is soon slipping into the world of taboo and it doesn’t take long before curiosity, and his libido, takes the lead. Especially with Emma at the held, seemingly calling his nature to the front of his mind. So who is really teaching whom in this creator creation environment?
So Alan has been in a bit of a dry spell at the moment with either no date or boring dates, namely him being the one to bore them. Seems he is just too wrapped up in his work to talk about anything different, to the point of taking his work home with him. The work in question is the creation of a lifelike female robot that is being trained to do basic chores to see how much it can learn. Seems this creation, M537, takes learning to the next level when it starts to think for itself and wants to create its own identity. Namely be calling herself Emma. At first Alan can’t see any harm in this but seems to be getting a bit more concerned about her behaviour when she starts thinking for herself and craving affection between the two of them.
Seems Emma wants to please Alan, starts with calling him her master. He made her so, from watching TV and studying manuals he left on his computer, wants to show her appreciation and act like she thinks women do. Seems the manuals in question have Alan starting to panic as they were from his personal computer and more to do with looking at what he has been missing out on the last six months. The longer he has her in his place the more he starts to see her as a ‘her’ and not ‘it’. Worrying him to no end. Coming home from work and finding her waiting for him with a meal and trying to seduce him has his head spinning. He goes to sleep thinking about how easy it would be to have her instead of someone real. But that’s the thing; he is starting to see her as something real. More so when she wakes him up and his restraint just snaps.
Seems she is more than willing to demonstrate all she has learned and given her reactions she has gone above and beyond. Something he is very pleased about. She might even have some insights into why Alan is single in the first place. Seems taking his work home with him might have helped him out with what was troubling him. His bad luck with the opposite sex and his current lack of libido use. Two birds, one robot – let’s see where he goes from here and how much more Emma wants to learn and with whom.
Another fun quirky short read with a difference to get wrapped up in.
