Science fiction novelist Judi Somers becomes so obsessed with her imaginary hero Race Parsec that she begs her best friend Felix, a not-so-mad scientist, to create a clone with every single one of her ideal man’s characteristics. But as Judi and Felix work on the perfect being, Judi finds herself more and more drawn to its creator, and begins to wonder if Felix is actually the man of her dreams after all. Once the android Race is off the lab table and in the flesh, will she be able to tolerate his perfection? Or can a mere mortal like Felix ever give her the wonderful life she has always dreamt of?
TOO MUCH FOR WORDS is what science
fiction novelist Judi Somers gets when she begs Felix, her old
school chum turned brilliant scientist, to translate her fictional
hero into a life-like android.
On paper, Race Parsec is an
interplanetary swash-buckling hero, the man against whom she
measures all other men. But for Felix, who’s been in love with Judi
for years, creating her perfect mate is pure agony. But Felix gets
even when he delivers the man of Judi’s dreams--or is he?
With nods to several SF writers,
Diana Rubino’s narrative is a funny, entertaining peek at what
happens when one woman actually gets what she asked for. This is a
refreshing departure from Ms. Rubino’s historical writing.—Kelly

Judi is a recently divorced writer who is feeling upset
as she gets her heart broken all the time. When her friend Felix tells her
about his research breakthrough into creating living beings, Judi wants in
on the research. Judi convinces him that she needs a perfect boyfriend. At
first Felix is against it, but he finely gives in.
Judi has to decide what her perfect boyfriend is like,
what traits he needs to have and what type of personality he needs. Leon from her
books would be a perfect boyfriend for sure. Once Leo is created Judi wants
him to be perfect. But maybe perfection isn't what Judi really needs. Maybe
Felix is really the best guy for her.
I enjoyed Fakin' It. It has a fun and cute plot. Leo
was super hot, but like Judi I probably would have gotten tired of him too.
He was just a bit annoying...too perfect. I did feel sorry for Felix for
loving Judi for such a long time and having to deal with her wanting someone
else. Luckily these two do end up together and have their HEA. The
friendship between Judi and Felix really made this book memorable.
