Look I saw AI wives and that is is queer and I added it.
“In our brutal book club, there are no rules, only truths. The first truth is all the women in New Stepford are AI. The second truth is womanoids learn faster while fighting. The third truth is all the men have failed. But it’s the fourth truth that will set us FREE.“
The Hollow Inside by Brooke Lauren Davis

The plan: bring down Ellis Bowman, the man who ruined Nina’s life. After Phoenix gets caught spying, she spins a convincing story that inadvertently gives her full access to the Bowman family. As she digs deeper into their secrets, she finds herself entrenched in the tale of a death and a disappearance that doesn’t entirely line up with what Mom has told her. Who, if anyone, is telling the whole truth?“
