He is labeled as Aiden-257. A computer chip programmed to be a fighting machine in a body that was also designed. He was not supposed to feel, think, or act on his own, yet he did just that. He was not supposed to communicate with anyone or anything outside the lab, yet he did that as well. And he was not supposed to make his own decisions. But Aiden never followed the rules to well.
On one of his 'outings' he goes into a chat room to learn about humans, and meets Keela O'Connor. He learns many things from chatting with her, including a new emotion. Desire! Now Aiden desires to be human more than what he thought. He wants to feel more and he wants to know what love is.
Keela is very lonely and has been hurt many times. Each man she has ever went out with has only wanted to go out with for sex, the one thing she wants to wait for. But when she talks to Aiden she notices that she is comfortable. She can tell him anything, and does.
When Aiden is told the longings of Keela he does everything he can to fulfill not only her dream but his own. Now time is against him. The lab that created him wants him back, not to finish his training but to destroy him before the he settles into his new body.
The clock is ticking and time is running out. Aiden has only 24 days to make the woman he loves his, and to keep the lab away.
