Summary

SWFG: Single, White, Female, Geek.

"That's me, Lexi Carmichael, a reformed hacker who was gainfully employed by the National Security Agency. But a series of extraordinary events led me to leave government life behind for a fresh start with a brand-new company and an incredibly sexy boss, Finn Shaughnessy. It may not be kosher to have the hots for your boss, but he seems to have the hots for me, too. If only things didn't get so complicated....

"Darren Greening, a genius researcher from Flow Technologies (our first client!) is missing, and his bosses think I'm involved. And they aren't the only ones - the man who nearly snapped my neck in the parking garage thinks so, too.

"Now I'm caught in the middle of a complex and dangerous case. I'll have to use all my geek skills and a little help from my friends to solve the mystery of Darren's disappearance before Neck-Snapping-Man makes a return visit."

A freaking laugh riot

But I wish our heroine could catch a break. I understand drawing out relationships so that they can develop over several books, but continually using misunderstanding or freakish circumstances to avoid bringing characters together is getting old.

Television Network Drama

I usually wouldn't write a review for a book like this. It was entertaining enough, but left me feeling somehow cheated, even though I purchased it on a $4.95 sale. I was thinking about other readers who seemed to love or hate this book, and it occurred to me what may be the reason. I believe this book is meant to be a series (It look like it is actually #2 although Audible hasn't yet made that connection). It gives you a tiny adventure/glance into the main character's life, and leaves you waiting for the next book. Usually I'm all about a series, but I didn't feel like there was enough meat in this one to have me coming back for more. It could very easily be a show on network television (Castle, Bones, NCIS....). However, it is only one episode. I guess I, personally, would rather watch an episode of something moderately amusing for free than waste a credit or $ on something similar from audible.

Loved it!

Any additional comments?

I loved it! It was funny and kept me guessing. The characters are entertaining and made me want to buy her other books. I was laughing out loud it was great imagery and story.

Funny and Entertaining!

I thought this was a cute story. I didn't know this is book 2 but no need to read the first one.
You don't feel like you missed anything. The heroine is funny and a little clumsy. It's a light read. Very enjoyable!

Scooby mystery, Steph Plum Fun, Hallmark romance

If you like your mystery easy, your humor silly, and your romance sweet, then this series works fairly well. It has the same “rom-com + mystery-action-danger” vibe as the Stephanie Plum bounty hunter series or the Spotless assassin-geek series. Only this series is sort of the paler imitation of those. It’s not nearly as funny or sharp as the Plum series and the characters are fairly flat and typical compared to the fascinatingly flawed characters of Spotless (An OCD British assassin? Way better backstory and accent narration). And if you like your action more explosive, your romance hotter (not to mention more explicit) and your dark, dangerous men more alpha, the other end of the spectrum has the Titan series (NC17 to this series PG).

Lexi Charmichael is eyerollingly awkward and perpetually finds herself in the middle of techie mysteries that she will eventually solve, not so much through her supposedly mad hacker skills, but really just by her earnest bumbling. I can tell from this book (number two in a long series) that she’ll also be perpetually in “danger,” attacked by huge goons who will never actually harm her, perpetually “saved” at the last minute, and perpetually have Finn, Slash, and BFF Basia exclaiming “OMG Lexi, are you okay?!” Even the romance has fallen into that endless will they/won’t they “conflict” that’s so poorly written we all know Lexi will eventually have sex (probably off screen) with Finn. The “we’re just friends” obvious attempt at a love triangle is not credible at all, especially coming from Lexi “it’s wrong for my bff to openly date two men” Carmichael.

The narrator did get better in this book. She’s great voicing Lexi. Compared to the first book’s rendition of sexy Italian spy Slash as Count Chocula, Slash has a much more toned down accent (still sounds like a teenager, though, and not the dangerous, dark government agent he’s supposed to be). Finn’s Irish brogue is okay, but it still comes and goes, as if the narrator forgets she’s voicing him at times. Like the first book, I also bumped the speed up to 1.3x for a more zippy listen befitting this airy story.

Are there some funny bits? Sure. The bikini wax bit was funny. However, the insanely contrived situations ended up giving the comedy an I Love Lucy feel- just too contrived and silly, to the point were it just fell flat. The stripper scenario was already so forced, and then we went from situational comedy to physical, Three Stooges style slapstick.

Borrowed for free as part of Audible Escapes monthly romance subscription, this was a quick, somewhat fun summer listen. It gets the two star “okay” rating. From here the series can’t be borrowed and must be bought. Only, I’m not sure I will get book three; even in a $5 Audio sale, I’m just not sure it’d be worth it.

Huh?

All of a sudden Slash doesn't have an Italian accent and Lexi questions his ethnicity? His Italian background was established in the first book.

love it

i couldn't stop laughing. i love Lexi and all the people in her little circle, especially Slash and the Zimmerman twins. i liked how she always seems to get in awkward potions and her response tends to be let the ground swallow me. can't wait for the next one.

No One to Trust

Lexi is coming into her own. I have read the books, now am going through the audio books. The narrator is ok.

great series, so-so narration

I love this series and have read the books multiple times. I love the idea of it being narrated, and the narrator does Lexi well. Unfortunately, her accents and male voices are inconsistent, and sometimes jar me out of the story.

Pretty Good Light Adventure

While there are still some I-can't-believe-anyone-could-be-this-stupid hijinks in this story, the series is improving in my opinion. I'm looking forward to seeing if the trend continues with the third book in the series.

I was disappointed that Slash lost most of his accent in this story, and the amount of accent that he did have varied a good deal during the story. At times it was confusing which male character was speaking as there wasn't always a lot of distinction to be made between them.

Overall it was an enjoyable, light read.
