a really unique story and a really unique way of telling it!

i will start by saying that i was quite hesitant to pick this book up because:

1. i'm not super into scifi/robot/AI stories and
2. amazon would NOT stop pushing this book at me


this was a lot of fun. i believe this story was originally written to become an audible original & the way that the narration was done was really awesome. you get different voices for nearly every character, including the AI, and there are sound effects don

The A.I. Who Loved Me is different than the normal romance books I read, but when I saw it was by Alyssa Cole, I knew I wanted to pick it up. Cole is a new to me author this year and I've fallen in love with her books.

Trininty works from home and lives a relatively quiet and boring life. She's recovering from an incident, and everything is going consistently fine until her new neighbor shows up. Li Wei is her neighbor's nephew and a bit.. odd. Li Wei's behavior isn't quite normal and

It turns out that I'm a sucker for any kind of humanoid robot who spends the book discovering their humanity. I just loved watching Li Wei coming into his humanity. I will say that tonally this book takes a big turn in the last 20%, but I thought that added to the overall story. In general, I thought this was a really interesting take on Sci Fi romance ...more

I listened to the Audible production of this book which was a real treat with multiple narrators, sound effects and voices.

The story is a science fiction romance between a human and an artificial intelligence made to look like a human. It's light on the science but surprise reveals and action keep the plot moving forward at a good pace.

Since I'm a science fiction aficionado, I felt this story could have done without the sex and cursing. For me, it detracted from the story. Part of the problem m

So I liked this one. I didn't love it but I thought it was a good overall listen. I didn't even think twice about giving this audiobook a try once I read the book's description. It just sounded so original that I just had to see what it was all about. I also often enjoy it when audiobooks use a full cast of narrators so this book had a lot of things going for it. I enjoyed this book and am glad that I decided to pick it up.

*A special thanks to the author for this copy of this audible original.*

I'll start this review off by saying I don't like audiobooks. I know, I know. Why did I agree to listen to this? Well, for one it's Alyssa Cole, how do you tell her no? But I knew from seeing it around on Twitter that this book had a dynamic cast. I mean, Regina Hall? Yes, please. I was not let down.

Trinity Jordan lives in this high-functioning building that is nothing short of being just like the Jetsons. If you don't know

I really enjoyed this fun scifi romance tale (read and performed by a full cast) featuring the heroine, Trinity Jordan, and her A.I. hero, Li Wei.

It came with much humour as well as some interesting and unexpected surprises.

3 3/4 "Human" Stars!

So when I started listening to this story, I was like... ohhh kaaay. What's happening here. But the longer I listen, the more I liked it. In the end, I thought it was very good! Super cool and very sweet. A different take on Scifi for me and my first but definitely not last Alyssa Cole book. The narrators were very good. Happy reading/listening!

This was...okay, enjoyable and entertaining but nothing about it really wowed me or made me love it. Definitely not like every other Alyssa Cole I've read. It wasn't really a disappointment either??

This (currently) audio-only book is an intriguing mix of Orwellian dark future and upbeat romance.

Trinity works from home as she slowly recovers from a traumatic accident with the help of her home AI and some caring friends. Her neighbor's nephew Li Wei has recently moved in next door and Trinity finds him as attractive as he is odd. Only the company that Trinity works for is the Hive, and she's essentially an indentured servant under constant surveillance. Li Wei is a biosynthetic humanoid that

I tried my best to get through this audiobook but I just...didn't like it? I couldn't get into the story and felt Li-Wei was a little hard to like since he's a freaking robot!!! I don't buy this love and if you wanted to watch a tv show with the same concept, I recommend Holo My Love a Korean drama that literally is this plot minus the whole neighbor thing. ...more

I wanted to enjoy this one but it fell flat. I don't get the point of multiple narrators. It would've been cool if they all consistently voiced their own characters but they didn't. And at parts Regina Hall was narrating like she was reading the phone book. Other times she really seemed into the story. The sound effects were pretty cool and added to the experience. I found myself so bored with the story though. It felt like nothing happened for half the book. The short legnth was to it's advanta ...more

The concept of this is really interesting—girl whose next-door-neighbor is actually a biosynthetic humanoid. But in 126 short pages, I can't help but feel like we were cheated out of the fully fleshed story we could have had.

That's not to say that Cole didn't make this fun and exciting—with loveable biosynthetic cats (T.I.M.!!!) and A.I. systems to steamy thoughts about your awkward neighbor—but I also really felt like we really missed out on the politics side of the story.

This book was totally different than the Alyssa I’m used to, but I am on a mission to read all her books. This was cute. I’m not keen on an A.I. romance, but I never would’ve known this if I hadn’t given this a chance. The audio was amazing with all the extras. It felt like I was watching a tv show.

Likes - Original, creative, diverse. Surprising twist and heart-pounding action in the last 15%.

Dislikes - Cutesy cover not indicative of the content and unsatisfactory use of the all-star cast of voice talents.

For starters, it was really cute. It had my head spinning a few times, but it was cute. Confusing twists had occurred where you literally had to stop for a second and go, oh. That actually happened? Ya.
And the story went the completely opposite way that you would imagine it too. It was ALOT darker then what people would figure the cover suggests and has several trigger points I think readers need to be aware of. Definitely some sort of PTSD. Drug manipulation and so on.

This could have so been longer, and epic, and like a new favorite scifi epic if it had a little more 'page time' to nurture and grow some plot points. Still while it was confusing in the beginning to know you are missing something big and not realize from who, eventually you just kinda settle in for the ride and its awesome. And then they throw you for like 17 loops and you don't know what is up. Still it was different and fun and there was some hotness so I for sure would continue on in this wo ...more

This is the first actual romance novel I’ve ever read - stuff like Kushiel’s Dart doesn’t actually count, as romance is its own genre. I read it specifically for Bingo, and picked this one because I am trying to do Hard Mode for as many books as I can and it’s the /r/Fantasy HEA (“Happily Ever After”) Book of the Month. I enjoyed it much more than I expected to, I’m happy to say.

Another fantastic offering from Alyssa Cole, this one with a sci-fi twist! In The A.I. Who Loved Me, Trinity Jordan lives a small and quiet life as she recovers from a serious accident that left her with a fear of elevators. She works as a remote taxi driver, has remote sessions with her therapist, and hangs out with her friends. Things change when she meets her neighbor's sexy nephew who has just moved in, and there is something different about him....

Y’all, the romance genre is WILD. Alyssa Cole has blown my mind once again! I mostly picked up this Audible original novella bc it’s Alyssa Cole (duh) and the all-star narration led by Regina Hall.

Besides the amazing narration and fantastic production, I went into this novella relatively blind. I knew it was about our heroine, Trinity and her strange new neighbor, Li Wei, who, based on the title, I was assuming was a cyborg or robot or something (unbeknownst to Trinity).

This book completely took me by surprise. I have never listened to anything by Alyssa Cole before, but the blurb was too interesting to pass up. And I'm so happy I didn't. This story was fantastic. It had so many unexpected twists and turns. Even when I thought I knew what was going on, it just kept surprising me. I liked the slow burn feel and all the characters. And that ending was perfection. The writing over all was really good and I definitely want to try more by this author in future.

3.5 stars. So it took me a bit to get into it. I’m not sure we really needed all the different narrators they had for this. Because on some of the chapters, the main narrator just did all the voices. I did love when we got Mindy Kaling though to do the house’s A.I. system voice. At times I did get a bit bored because the narrator’s voices were kind of slow at times, or maybe it was how the story was written. There were also sound effects from flashbacks, something weird that you don’t usually he ...more

Recovering from an injury, Trinity Jordan is working at home. Li Wei, her neighbor's nephew, is eye catching and a little odd.

This story was odd, but captivating. The amount of technology involved in everything was interesting. Everything could communicate with each other (which I guess really happens now in a way), but to see how evolved everything was was amazing.

Trinity and Li Wei's relationship was interesting. By being with her, he ended up becoming more human. Watching them interact with

“I hear footsteps, which is my first indicator that something is off—Dr. Zhang is feather-boned, and her light steps would barely register through the thick metal of her door. Still, I’m staring at where her eyes should be when the door jerks open. Instead of her kind, slightly wrinkled face, I’m met with a bronze wall of rippling abdominal muscles. Washboard isn’t a good descriptor because these abs are so chiseled they seem like they could hurt you, like you could lose a finger to a freak sit-up related accident if you reached out to stroke them at the wrong moment. This is an imminent threat because, clearly, their owner must spontaneously break into abdominal exercises without warning all the time to maintain this physique.” 1 likes
