And then there was a car crash, a horrible injury, and a hospital. But before Evening Spiker’s head clears a strange boy named Solo is rushing her to her mother’s research facility. There, under the best care available, Eve is left alone to heal.  Just when Eve thinks she will die—not from her injuries, but from boredom—her mother gives her a special project: Create the perfect boy.

Eve's mother runs a major biotech company that has been crossing ethical lines.  When her mother gives her the project of creating the perfect boy, she doesn't consider the implications of her actions beyond the computer screen before her.  Eve also doesn't seem to notice that her crash injuries are healing a superhero rate.

I liked Eve and Adam.  It was a fun, little YA sci-fi book.  There need to be more books like this.  Yes, it had insta-love.  Yes, there was a hint of a love triangle.  Yes, the main characters had weird names.  However, it was a nice neat story, with an ending in one book.  The characters had great chemistry.  There were a few little side stories going on, but there weren't so many that the main story line got all crazy and hard to follow.

Eve and Adam, A+ from this happy reader.
