Annie does not have the greatest track record with men. She thinks that she currently has a winner with Dave, but a flower/video delivery later puts that theory to rest. What's a girl to do now??? She gets even and creates her very own dream guy. Okay, she comes up with this idea for work but hey, it could work. A video Joe that will treat a woman the way she wants to be treated. No being dumped by this virtual hunk!
Matt, Annie's boss thinks that this is the dumbest thing he's ever heard of. It's never going to fly and what's worse...they might just be laughed at right out of a job! Matt could not have been more wrong, and now Annie and Matt are going to have to team market the video game. Since these two have a history...one night of scrap you off the ceiling sex...and...nothing. Matt is all about staying single and Annie is all about the house, white picket fence, dog, and kids. They couldn't be more different. Or are they really wanting the same thing???
This was a great character driven read. Collin (co-worker and best friend to both Matt and Annie) is a riot and a wonderful addition to this colorful story. As is Annie's mom, Rico, Helena...well, you get the picture. Ms. Halliday has taken various social, and relationship issues and has created a wonderful story. I highly recommend Ms. Halliday's latest effort. Be prepared to laugh out loud and at time even agree with the characterization!

Dave sends Annie a video message informing her that their relationship is over. Irate, Annie decides no more men in her life, which leads to her conceptualizing Joe Video, an interactive perfect male. The production meeting attendees love the concept. As Annie hires a hunk to play Joe, Matt realizes how much he dwells on their one hot evening together especially her flirting with the actor although she has written off men...............................
DREAM GUY is a lighthearted contemporary war of the sexes using technology to further the skirmishes. Matt is a solid key support player as he competes with a handsome actor and Joe Video for the affection of the woman he loves. Annie is the center of that triangle and in turn the story line as she covets her boss who she also detests, but finds the remote easier to relate to than with Matt or the hunk. Fans will enjoy this fun tale that is one click away from providing the DREAM GUY..............................
I just did not feel a strong connection from the main characters. You could tell they were in lust but when did we get to see their feeling for eachother grow and them come together and all that? They were almost too busy making eachother jealous to get together. Until Annie walks in on Matt at his house and things take off from there. Only it did not get all that romantic, it was sexy yes, but not really romantic.
I felt more romance from Rico and Helena in the end. Although Helena was a little over the top.
So, while it was an entertaining story and ws laugh out loud funny, I thought it needed alot more romance. It was a great book, but I thought it fell in more with light romantic comedy. So that is why I gave it 3 and a half. Its a good book, but not the ammount of romance I had expected. Mrs. Halliday is a good author and I will get her books again, I just know what to expect now.
