Nora Bowman’s love life just imploded. A road trip—not running away!—leads her to San Francisco and possibly the most beautiful man she’s ever seen in real life. And Nora saw all of him. Literally. Which is awkward, because he’s her new client. On the plus side, she’s discovered a new kink for tattooed bad boys. Who knew?
Tech millionaire Gabe Sterling has everything—but the one thing his money can’t buy is happiness. When he hires the latest in a long line of interior designers to remodel his secret hideaway, he never expects to fall for the designer’s quirky assistant. Gabe should be focusing on Sterling Enterprises’ ground-breaking new project, but Nora is driving him to distraction.
Will he choose the job and level up from millionaire to billionaire, or will Gabe choose a life with love-shy Nora…if, that is, he can convince her to take a chance on him.
Technically Mine is a fun, sexy story about finding your home—even if you have to run away from it first.
Elle Finley is looking for more. Tired of chaotic ER shifts and a home life that revolves around Netflix, pizza, and sleep, when her injured sister needs her help back home Elle jumps at the chance to shake things up. She’s not prepared for the sexy stranger next door who seems intent on sweeping her off her feet and then doing other–more exciting–stuff to her.
Metal sculptor Alex Zacharov can’t believe his luck when the girl he fell in love with eighteen years ago walks right back into his arms. Although he recognizes her in a heartbeat, she has no idea who he is, or what she means to him. Alex is more comfortable with a welding torch and hot metal than with dating and romance. He’s focused, intense, and used to getting what he wants…and he wants Elle. Even if he has to learn how to date her first.

Not a HUGE fan of this cover. It is eye-catching and has great composition but it is really not a good representation of the characters in the story.
I enjoyed this one A LOT. It was well written and nicely paced. It was super sweet. It had humor. It had two very likable main characters. It was almost a perfect read.
The only two things holding it back from being 5-Stars was there weren’t any descriptive sex scenes. Gabe was a hot tattooed billionaire geek that wore glasses on occasion. Not having a hot specimen like that get his descriptive sexy on was a sadly missed opportunity. It also lacked an epilogue. I would have liked a further into the future look at these two as a couple.
Apart from those two small issues, this was a VERY enjoyable way to spend a couple of hours. Two thumbs up from your truly.
