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."

Say something about yourself!
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.
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.
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!
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.
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.
Lexi is a humorous, witty, geek. storyline is pretty predictable, but enjoyable. narrator does not impersonate male characters well & is not good w most accents.
Retired 35 year policeman from So CA, relocated with my wife to South Carolina with "Toby" our cat. I listen to two books a week
Beginning to fall for Lexi. These stories are pure, light hearted entertainment. Starting next in series now.
I missed Slash's Italian accent that he had in the first book. Good continuation of the first book, but it could stand on its own. Lexi trying to work on dating is hysterical. She solves another mystery with leaps in logic. We see all of the characters from the first book.
Love, love, love Kristen Watson Heintz as the narrator of this story, she does a wonderful job. This is one of my favorite series, Lexi is wonderful, Slash and as Phin are so well words fail me. And the Zimmerman twins well I just can't get enough. A must for your listening pleasure.
I liked the way Lexi and Finn interacted and the way she became immersed in a murder situation with no intention of any of it happening. She seems to be a magnet for trouble as Slash says.
I wouldn't say on the edge of my seat but it did engage my interest and kept me wanting to find out more. I like that the story is about the characters and doesn't get bogged down with lots of extraneous stuff. A man disappears, Lexi is hired to find him, and then the story goes about that happening with some surprises along the way.
I liked everything about the book as usual. Perhaps when Finn and Lexi arrive at the brownstone and find out the location of their missing person is intriguing, especially when Lexi proceeds alone.
Lexi Gets Her Man! Always.
