My summary: After being hit by a car, Evening "Eve" Striker is whisked from the ER to her mother's biotech firm, where she meets enigmatic teen intern Solo Plissken. As Eve heals, her mother asks her to use Striker Biopharm's new technology to create the perfect man. But when Solo shares some disturbing secrets with Eve -- secrets about her mother, Striker Biopharm, and Eve herself -- they find themselves in terrible danger.
My take: Eve and Adam was a fun, fast-paced read that kept me flipping the pages. It was one part Adoration of Jenna Fox, one part Mannequin. Eve was a spirited heroine, her mother a great Mommy Dearest-meets-Real Housewives of Silicon Valley villainess.
Then there's Solo. Here's how he's described:
"He's scruffy-looking with too much hair, too little shaving. He's tall and wide shouldered, muscular, blondish. Extremely blue eyes."
Solo. Scruffy and cute. Hmmm. Anyone else getting this mental picture?
