(Disclosure and disclaimer: I was a last-minute beta reader for this novella, and the published version differs in some ways from the version I read. I have not yet seen the final version, but I understand the changes to be minor details that do not affect my review.)

I have often, if quietly, lamented the state of erotica as a genre, especially when it is self-published. Too much of it escapes any editorial process at all, appearing to have been dashed out in a rush and put up for sale the same

This is an absolutely beautifully written story that takes a sensitive and tender look at the relationship that develops between a widower with three kids and an artificial life-form "e-girl" that he wins during a football game and takes into his home. Selena manages to fill an emptiness in his children's lives since the loss of their mother and provide him with both emotional and sexual companionship. There are erotic scenes in this story but this is far more than a "I won a sex robot" type of ...more

This is a novella that I wrote on the spur of the moment, intending it to be a relatively short story. But Selena had other ideas, and it blossomed into something quite different than what I envisioned. I tried to imagine what would happen if you dropped a robot like this into an existing family—what kind of emotions would it generate? While this is as erotic as my other stuff, it's an unusual piece of erotica in that respect. I hope you enjoy it.

Fun and heartfelt

I enjoyed this book. I was surprised with the tenderness of the author's portrayal of an AI, not human but with emotions.

Holy smokes I liked it.

I wasn't really sure what to expect since I've only read one book by this author and well it was good but didnt grab my attention. This one though hands down, I didnt want to get back to work when I started reading it and didn't stop until I fished the book once a got home. Awesome book.

It's a short novella that explores what happens when an e-girl can take anyone's form. Smarter than it seems.

Once in a while you come across a book that stands out from all the rest. Michael dalton’s The eGirl is one of those books. From the beautiful eye-catching cover to the professional formatting, it is a joy to look at. But what about the story? The idea of an AI robot is not exactly unique, and with erotica it is usually used to perform sex acts that are physically impossible, and to be honest, not that hot. But Dalton has come up with something completely different.
