4 stars!!!

This is the first novel that I've read by C.E. Wilson and I must say that I'm really impressed. The story is so complex with raw emotions abound. The story centers around a girl named Chloe who lives in the city with her ASIST (Anthropomorphic Sentient Individualized Servile uniT) named Rogan. Rogan is a robot and provides Chloe with companionship. However, one day Rogan disobeys a command in order to please her. Suddenly, Chloe feels that something has changed about him. The story is

I'm pleased and very happy to have decided to review this book, I found one of the most original, sweet and deep history that I've read. I loved!


This story is about a young woman,Chole , to which her parents gave her a companion robot, called Rogan to serve her in everything she need , called an Asist. And then the romance jumps to the scene and it was amazing.

This is actually one of those books that makes me want to cry out of frustration. Look at that damn blurb and tell me if this doesn’t sound amazing?

I was dying to read this from the moment I heard of it (during a cover reveal blog tour), and I was more than happy to request an e-ARC.

The frustrating part? I didn’t like it half as much as I wanted to.

And I tried. I truly tried because I wanted to experience all the possibilities this concept could’ve brought to light. I w

The author provided me with an early copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

I have worked with this author before when I read “The Boy with Words” and I have to say I really enjoyed this book so much more. The cover doesn’t do it justice. I would suggest changing it. The story made you think about the very real possibility of artificial intelligence being used in the far future to care for our needs and what would it mean then. Would they have rights? Would their artificial intellige

I was not a fan of this book. Not only did it have a ridiculous love triangle but the heroine was a repulsive disgrace. The story concept did have promise but the delivery was not well executed. I could not stand the heroine. Her character came across as continually selfish and inconsiderate. All of the characters in this book had a juvenile/immature feel to them. The story was overly predictable and quite cliché. At least it was offered as a kindleunlimited.

Wow! What a wonderful sci-fi romance! The question of what's real and what's not and what's alive and what isn't, is explored in this beautiful story about a woman, her robot companion, and her jealous love interest. Can a machine learn to love?
Even the secondary characters were interesting and lovable. I had a hard time putting this down!

I didn't love any of the characters in this, but most of the were okay.

It took me a while to get into this one, and even after I did there were still times where I felt a bit bored. There were parts of it that dragged slightly because of it, but overall, it was an okay read.

I did have a slight issue with the weird time jump that happened once in the book.

I am a huge fan of old fashioned science fiction, but I have trouble finding newer books that use those classic formulas so this was a bit of a treat.

This author keeps getting better and better with her works! I also love how all of her works are so strange. I know that's a weird way to phase it but it's actually a good thing! I've never seen some of the things she comes up with in books before and in a world where hardly anything is original anymore... this is refeshing! This is a good strange ha ha.

**I received a copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.**

I went into this a bit hesitant about the story. I’ve read and loved C.E. Wilson’s books in the past, so it wasn’t that I was unsure of her writing, but more that I wasn’t sure how captivating a romance between a woman and a robot was going to be. But within a couple of chapters, I found myself totally invested in the story and their romance. The second that the second love interest, Niven, was introduced, I wanted him gone s

This book was full of pleasant (and not so pleasant sometimes) surprises, and did a great job of addressing one of the world's biggest issues today in a great way. I loved Rogan and how the author really gave him a personality beyond his programming, clearly illustrating his emerging consciousness. The love story had realistic challenges and a great ending. I would definitely recommend for people who loved the movies "AI", or "I, Robot".

Rogan is a robot. More specifically, he is an Asist – a personalized humanoid servant that provides protection, assistance, and companionship for a lonely young woman living on her own in the city. Chloe is trying to get her big break, singing at bars and clubs all over the city at night while she pays the bills as a substitute teacher during the day. Ever since she activated him many months ago, Rogan has been her beautiful, dependable,

C.E. Wilson has penned a quirky, oddly touching, relationship sci-fi bonafide book for grown ups! And on that line, I READ A WHOLE BOOK WRITTEN FOR GROWN UPS!

Sorry, I'm a Young Adult lit reader. I don't read grown up books very often. It's a big deal for me. I was fortunate enough to have a lot of down time after having a procedure done, and I spent my time wisely in Chloe's world.

What originally struck me was the tone of the novel. Witty and with actual banter I could hear in my head. Some of

I absolutely love this line and need to share: "Hate is never a good feeling to keep in your heart, no matter your reason." AMAZING and so true!

I received an ARC of this story from Ms. Wilson, and I have to say, it was a real pleasure to read.

The premise of This Is Me. was so fun and intriguing. I was sucked in immediately by the idea of Asists and Ms. Wilson did a great job of bringing it to life. From the descriptions of the Asists themselves to the way different people in society treated them, I felt like she left no stone unturned - and yet I still wanted to read more! I still feel interested in the whole thing.

I walked into this book completely blind and I'm so thrilled that I did. I have never read a romance about artificial life and I must say I truly fell head over heels for this story. The author painted such a beautiful picture and takes you into the world created for us. Rogan is so much more than just Chloe's robot. You must read this book and truly see how much can change and develop over time. Not everything is as simple as black and white. Not everyone is who they say they are. In a world th ...more

This book packs quite the punch! Woven throughout this emotional drama, are things everyone goes through at some point in their life. It helped me re-establish that not everyone has to be "normal" to be happy. Kudos to the author for another great work!

With all of the technological advances in this world, the Asist robot is second to none when it comes to companionship and servitude. Private school substitute teacher Chloe received one named Rogan for her graduation present. The two are inseparable best friends and sometimes lovers, which angers many of Chloe’s friends to the point of bigotry against these robots. Chloe’s human boyfriend Niven is especially enraged and makes any attempt he can to drive a wedge between her and the “fake” Rogan. ...more

It doesn’t take too much effort to look through the review list on this blog to see that I’m a fan of author C.E. Wilson. What I like most about her work is the lens she uses to present deep or important themes. The situations in her stories fall into the speculative fiction genre, but they’re always grounded in the real world.

This Is Me is no exception. We have a story that is set in the real world—or at least a parallel real world or not-to-distant future of our world—where there are sentient

We’ve all eaten apples before. At least, once, right? There’s nothing new about an apple. But imagine if you’ve lived your entire life and you’ve never seen or heard of an apple. Instead, you grew up eating pears. Biologically, they are similar, but the taste is very different. If what I just described was my experience, This is Me was kind of like an apple for me. Before I read This is Me, I had read The Boy with Words (Review) and I had loved it and Wilson’s writing. So, despite how out-of-the ...more

Chloe is a young woman, who, ever since graduating, has been gifted by her parents with an Assist named Rogan to protect and keep Chloe company when she moved away to live on her own.

This is Me focuses on Chloe and her A-SIST (Anthropomorphic Sentient Individualized Servile uniT) Rogan. Rogan is a very human-like robot, so much so that most wouldn’t know he wasn’t flesh and blood if it weren’t for his stiff demeanor and formal speech. Many people at this time are not supportive of human and A-SIST romantic relationships, and this causes Chloe to be very private about her sexual relationship with Rogan. However, their closeness does not go unnoticed and it begins to cause tro ...more

The premise of the book had me hooked immediately. I enjoy books that discuss the possibility that artificial intelligence can go beyond its programming to have emotions and independent decisions. My curiosity was piqued when I saw that the potential for romance was added to the equation.

Thoughts: Well, I stayed up past my bedtime and had to force myself to put it down and go to bed. This story was so good! Not your typical love story which was a nice change.
