The setting: David’s Company, Envoy.
The Hero(s): David Carlson – Billionaire owner of the company that made the first successful self driving car. He is hot and smart and very rich.
The heroine: Emma May – engineer who wants to work for Envoy, the company David owns. She finds out where he is going to be after attending a conference he spoke at. She specialized in philosophy and ethics and wants to add that to the coding of the cars so the cars can decide things like what to do if it is a choice between hitting something/someone on the road or potentially swerving and killing or injuring the occupants in the car.
The Love Story: David and Emma meet at a bar and have a one night stand. He says he will call her but it turns out they never exchanged numbers. Emma has a baby girl and a year later ends up working for David’s company.
This is another book with some glaring plot holes, chief of which is that Emma doesn’t tell David about his daughter and is telling herself it is because she doesn’t want Julie raised in a wealthy lifestyle where she is given everything and never has to work for anything. Yet Emma agrees to be a surrogate for David and give him the baby after she has it.
Not only is that doing to another child what Emma refused to do to Julie, but she is doing it for money so she can give Julie things she never had. Crazy and conflicting justifications there. However, despite those things, this was a scorching hot and fun book. David was funny and was terrific at talking dirty and doing other things pretty dirty as well and he also had some secrets. Ethical choices was a big undertone in this one.
