Enough sweetness for right-side eater Judith Arnold’s A> Loverboy says in her Author Note that the story was written in 1989 under a Harlequin project called “A Century of Romance”. Her story is set on the eve of the year 2000 in a world where a massive earthquake has hit California (The Big One), transplanting Silicon Valley to Kansas where we meet Dr. Lucy Beckwith. Lucy moved to Kansas after her divorce and is a software programmer designing a model city called “Smart-Town” when another programmer, Dr. James Kazan, expresses an interest in her project. Normally, this wouldn’t be a problem, but Jim has a reputation for high-jacking projects, showing off, and leaving when he gets bored. Lucy has ignored Jim’s professional and personal interest, content to focus on her work, until she begins to receive secret notes from another programmer calling himself, “Loverboy”. Who is Loverboy? There were so many things I loved about Arnold’s book. The writing and world-building was superb with small details that made the ‘future’ very believable. Lucy and Jim were both very complex characters. I loved that Lucy was a software programmer, a professional woman working for a high-profile company and negotiating office conflict with Jim. I loved that she was the serious one in the relationship, perhaps frozen and unable to move forward because of her divorce. Jim, on the other hand, seemed more of the extrovert, but there were things he kept private, allowing only Lucy close enough to know the real him. My favorite and most unique pieces of her book were the geeky romantic touches that made me sigh out loud. Only in a geek romance would the hero write poetry or develop code showing a graphic of two hearts beating as one. My greatest appreciation for her book is the message: Romance is in the heart of the beholder. What one person thinks as romantic could be something entirely different for someone else. And geek love is something truly unique (just attend a comic con if you want more examples). And seeing the romantic gestures Jim bestowed upon Lucy under the guise of “A> Loverboy” enabled them to connect at ‘safe’ place Lucy where didn’t feel as vulnerable. If I had any quibbles with “A> Loverboy” it was the plot progressed rather predictably. I wasn’t surprised at the “dark moment” or the “resolution”. Some readers might be used to a higher heat level, but that wouldn’t fit in with the Harlequins of the time period.
