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."

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.
The narrator did an awful job...one character was Irish and Kristin Watson Heintz's feeble attempt to illustrate his accent was not consistent. Sometimes you couldn't even tell he was speaking and other times the brogue disappeared mid-sentence. The reviews said the story was funny, but after listening to 1/3 of the story, thinking it would get better, it didn't.
I realize the book was on the sale table, but honestly I'd love to return it!!!!
