Just a few weeks ago, computer prodigy China Mack's typical night in involved Endor Star Wars pajamas and a sensible bedtime. Now she's dating gorgeous tech guru Jackson Cooper - one of Forbes's Top 10 Eligible Billionaires - much to the Twitterverse's delight.
Turns out, going from socially inept hermit to poster girl for geek chic has its challenges. China's relationship gets even more complicated because her role heading the top-secret Vigilance program - where she's partnered with Superman clone Clark Slattery - makes her a target. And when ruthless businessman Simon Lu plans to co-opt Vigilance software to blackmail government and military employees, he'll need China's cooperation - willing or otherwise.
But not every enemy is so easily identified. Some hide in plain sight, in very high places, and mistaking foe for friend could be the last mistake China ever makes...

Tiffany Snow always delivers but in this one she surprises by bringing back beloved Blaine and Kade from The Kathleen Turner series! Filled with action, believable tech, plenty of sizzling romance and twists, this 2nd book keeps me longing for the next book. The narrator does an excellent job sounding like a petite, genius and slightly OCD young twenty-something who draws you into her world. I love her pace, clarity and emphasis on the dialogue. 5 stars overall!!!
This was a decent enough book. It did have a couple issues.
I really like China Mack's character and her quirkiness. I like both Jackson and Clark, however, Clark seemed to be coming to a forefront of being her love interest and I am not sure I like that. If this series continues, I hope the next book is about Clark and someone else. If this becomes a love triangle it will suck. I hate love triangle's.
The story line and plot was a bit confusing at times. It could have been written much better. There was a lot of internal dialogue going on from China which some was funny and some could have been left out as it was not necessary. At 67% the book went from being written in the 1st POV to the 3rd POV. I was so happy when that happened, but it was short lived and went back to the 1st POV. Then again towards the end it went back to 3rd POV for a very little bit then back to the 1st POV. The problem with the 1st POV is you don't get anything from the other characters and that just kind of sucks.
So all in all it was not a great book it was not terrible either. But it could have been great if written a little better and the story line and plot not so convoluted. Because it was. There was a bit of action and exciting things happening so there is that. There was also a lot of dialogue throughout the book that was good minus the unnecessary internal thoughts coming from China.
As for the narration it was good, I think Ariele DeLisle did a good job on the men's voices and gave everyone their own distinct voice. Although she does sound very young. More like she should be narrating YA books.
