5 Stars from Tiffany!
Pure Tech Genius!
After finishing this book I almost feel a little smarter. Almost. As a fan of CD Reiss since her Songs of Submission series, I was excited to get my grubby little hands on this. Only she would be able to making an interesting love story out of coding. Also, as the daughter of a former drywall hanger/company owner, I appreciated her using the correct drywall terms, (hang and tape) with the exception of spackle. It's texture where I'm from. ;)
The set up of this story line had me instantly all in. Taylor starts off as a guy you hate to love. A cocky a-hole that needs to be put in his place real quick like. He thinks he has the world in the palm of his hand with his exclusive code, but all it takes is one person to bring him to his knees. And to find out that person was a girl, even better.
Harper Watson was on a mission, one that got out of her control pretty quickly, however she couldn't ever let Taylor know that. She was making a statement when breaking his precious code and now that he's right in front of her, she has to tread very carefully to protect her skills, as well as her heart.
"She confused the F out of me, but I liked her. I hated her. I was angry at her. I was afraid of her. And still, I liked her."
Harper was something Taylor never let himself work around, a beautiful woman with a brain. So meeting her was shocking. He didn't know what to expect and certainly didn't think she was going to be so many steps ahead of him at all times. I'll tell ya, it was so refreshing to read a book where the woman has such an upper hand. I absolutely loved Harper, even when it seemed like she really needed to give the guy a break.
"She was an open book written in a code I was just starting to understand."
While Johnathon Drazen will always take the top spot, Taylor Harden is a close second. There's nothing like seeing these alphas knocked down a few pegs by a sharp tongued, witty gal. The change in Taylor as the book progressed was awesome. He learned that coding isn't just a man's sport and maybe, just maybe, there is a girl out there smarter than him. She got him all the way to Barington didn't she?
The book is well written and at first I thought I may have been in over my head with all of the tech talk. While not a big dummy with computers, this coding thing is a whole other world. That said, it turns from coding to trying to figure out the end game pretty quickly. Don't even guess, just read and enjoy this sharp, sexy tale.
ABOUT THE AUTHOR:
CD Reiss is a New York Times bestseller. She still has to chop wood and carry water, which was buried in the fine print. Her lawyer is working it out with God but in the meantime, if you call and she doesn't pick up she's at the well hauling buckets. Born in New York City, she moved to Hollywood, California to get her master's degree in screenwriting from USC. In case you want to know, that went nowhere but it did give her a big enough ego to write novels. She's frequently referred to as the Shakespeare of Smut which is flattering but hasn't ever gotten her out of chopping that cord of wood. If you meet her in person, you should call her Christine.
