Alex + Ada: The Complete Collection by Jonathan LunaJonathan Luna. Alex is uncomfortable with this un-sentient being, whom he names Ada, and almost returns her before changing his mind. Alex learns that androids like Ada are capable of sentience, but that feature has been deactivated and locked. When Alex has Ada unlocked — breaking federal law in the process — it opens a new world of questions for both of them. Issues of technology, consent, and humanity are threaded through this well-written and interesting story, and it does have an HEA although an unconventional one. Alex is handed what can be, essentially, both a slave and an extremely expensive sex toy. That he chooses instead to help Ada become herself speaks well of him — and proves crucial when it turns out that Ada remembers everything from before she was sentient.
