Description

`Refreshing and fun' Debbie Johnson

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?

Review quote

"From robots to weddings, The Plus One made me laugh, cry, and wonder what dating would be like after I've already created the perfect man. Simply unputdownable!"-Renee Carlino, USA Today bestselling author of Blind Kiss


"The Plus One is bursting with heart and soul. It engineers thought-provoking questions about what love and humanity really look like. Archer is totally captivating."- Hannah Orenstein, author of Playing with Matches


"Prepare to fall in love with The Plus One! Sarah Archer's wildly inventive, laugh-out-loud funny, heart-tugging romance is perfect for our wired world. From the adorably awkward all-too-human tech-genius heroine to the dreamy boy-toy beau she creates, these characters are as alive, vibrant and winning as can be whether flesh-and-bone or bot. If you've ever needed a love life reboot or dreamed of finding (or building!) your soul mate, this whipsmart, witty pageturner is a must-read!"-Aimee Agresti, author of Campaign Widows
