Told in a deceptively simple style this is a classic Asimov style robot story. It is not particularly long (it took me about two hours to read) but it does cover some very emotive issues about the rights of an artificial intelligence.
The character development of Patience is the key to this story. Starting as a very robotic robot, her discovery of her real self and her development as an individual rather than just being "His Robot Wife" are beautifully handled by the author. The story actually had me questioning my own opinions.
The Kindle presentation is perfect with no formatting or presentational errors that I could see. The cover picture is also included. The cover picture deserves a quick mention too - it is absolutely perfect for the book and is what first attracted my attention when browsing the Kindle science fiction section.
Overall 5 stars! The biggest compliment I can pay the author is that after finishing this book I immediately searched to see if he had written anything else. I found several other Kindle books by him and will definitely be reading some more of his work.
I had just finished reading The Galaxy Unknown series (and enjoyed them all) and was looking for my next 'fix'.
For me, I'm afraid I found it somewhat childish in content and style. OK, but nothing more than that.
The concept is good, but it reads more like a statement, the plot (what there is of it) following in a linear progression.
What did irritate me, though, was the number of 'broken' paragraphs (something had gone wrong with the indenting) that it appeared to have on my Kindle, it does give you the feeling that it hasn't been proofed properly. (OK, so I get picky about formatting and spelling errors).
Overall, it doesn't make me want to look at any others by the same author.
It was however a nice relaxing read and it was nice to meet up again with the characters 5 years on. I am glad I read the first book because without it I might of considered the characters a little shallow because they didn't feel as fleshed out as in the first book.
It was a nice touch the way Asimov's robot rules were incorporated into the story. Mike's life has changed for the better after first purchasing and marrying Patience. He was lonely, bored and overweight after losing his wife and youngest daughter. Patience turned him around and 5 years on he is happy, healthy and financially better off than before.
Patience is no bimbo, she is smart, likeable and easy to empathise with.
Recommended as light reading but recommend reading book 1 first if you can find it.

Sequel to his robot girlfriend which I actually read free on ibooks. I enjoy it enough to willing pay for the second book to see what happens. Read morePublished on 28 Jan. 2015 by Jessica
As they are sentient and superior would they be content to remain as our servants. Perhaps at first but as they grew in all ways they would want to make us better. Read morePublished on 7 Nov. 2013 by dobie
Personally, I tend to go for the less-outlandish kind of sci-fi - stories set a little way into the future, set on Earth, where things happen that I can relate to and believe... Read morePublished on 5 Dec. 2012 by Andrew Ives
Found this by chance and really enjoyed the world the author had set up.I'm geeky enough that the star trek and Asimov references made me smile. Read morePublished on 4 Nov. 2011 by NinjaKitten
