"I'm Lexi Carmichael, geek extraordinaire. I spend my days stopping computer hackers at the National Security Agency. My nights? Those I spend avoiding my mother and eating cereal for dinner. Even though I work for a top-secret agency, I've never been in an exciting car chase, sipped a stirred (not shaken) martini, or shot a poison dart from an umbrella.
"Until today, that is, when two gun-toting thugs popped up in my life and my best friend disappeared. So, I've enlisted the help of the Zimmerman twins - the reclusive architects of America's most sensitive electronic networks - to help me navigate a bewildering maze of leads to find her.
"Along the way, my path collides with a sexy government agent and a rich, handsome lawyer, both of whom seem to have the hots for me. Hacking, espionage, sexy spy-men - it's a geek girl's dream come true. If it weren't for those gun-toting thugs...."

Thoroughly engaging heroine! A woman with a brain who takes charge. I loved it.
Th narrator is just SO bad that it's overshadowing any good that this book might have been. She's is a slow talking, over-enunciator, who is making everything sound cheesy with her over-the-top "harlequin" voice. I get that this is a categorized as a Harlequin production, but if she could just read it like a normal person, it could read like cute heroine, chick lit. She's also a saliva-heavy reader....ug.
I've listened to hundreds of audiobooks and I've learned that narration is 80% of the experience, at least. I'd like my credit back, please.
Great story, well paced, well narrated. It was serious in the right places and funny when appropriate. The espionage is light but not in a bad way. I don't like overdone romance and this had just enough to keep things interesting without being over the top. This was a fun listen and I can't wait for more by this author, hopefully continuing the characters in this story.
