Re-Wired, by Greg Dragon
Robotics student Brad Barkley has created the perfect woman. The only problem is she’s an android, and her creator realizes too late he may have made her too perfect. After Brad’s ultimate failure with women nearly consumes him, he discovers Tricia, his android, may be able to rescue him from a life of loneliness, if he and the human race are willing to pay the price.
I’m an avid sci-fi fan. One of the things I like the most about sci-fi, is that it has the ability to tackle modern-day issues, but disguise them under the guise of aliens or other non-humans. Star Trek did this frequently from TOS through Voyager.
What I like best about Re-Wired, is that it takes themes of discrimination and frames it under the guise of androids. There is also the added warning of changing yourself to make someone else happy. Those themes are conveyed nicely without being preachy, or pummeling the reader.
The story itself is an interesting read that is a mix of romance and a quasi-whodunit. I may have never read Greg Dragon if I hadn’t won a giveaway, and I’m glad I’ve discovered him. I expect great things from this author and look forward to reading more from him.
