Just as the title suggests, e-Love is a modern novel about love. But it also delves into sensuality and eroticism all on the Internet.
Confused by his inability to understand himself emotionally, John posts an advertisement in the Yahoo personals, looking for an outsider's unbiased opinion on the autobiography he has just written. A Brit, John was abandoned by his mother when he was five, and he has never heard from her again.
When Simone answers his ad, she too is in a personal crisis. On the brink of losing custody of her five-year-old child to her ex-husband, Simone reads John's work and is astounded with his intensity. The two fall madly in e-Love. The true test comes if they can make their long-distance erotic relationship work in person. They set up a meeting in Washington, D.C., to see if sparks will fly and their love will compute.
