~SYNOPSIS~
Mia Rollins has a problem. 
A ten million dollar problem. 
There’s a bounty on her head and some really shady people are hoping for a big payout when they find her.
The only problem is she has no idea who wants her, or why. 
So she enlists the help of the one person in this world who can help her: Diego Medina, journalist wonderkin and notorious playboy. And when he chooses to ignore her pleas for help, Mia resorts to … a more creative Plan B. After all, desperate times call for desperate measures, right?
But the one thing Mia didn’t realize is that by hacking her way into Diego’s life, she also may have hacked her way into his heart.

~EXCERPT~
Scrubbing a hand over my jaw, I rack my brain for my best opening line, but my eyes keep drifting to her photo. It’s incredibly and intensely attractive to me—and my dick, if the eager strain against my pants is any inclination. Excitement bubbling within me, I open up a new chat window and quickly type out a message.
 
User3242: Hey baby, I can’t stop staring at your picture. Can’t help but ask if there’s a chance I’ll be able to see more tonight? 
 
I lean back in my chair and cross my arms over my chest. Three small dots appear on the bottom of the chat screen, and my heart rate increases. 
 
MissMia: We’ll see. I’ll need something from you first. I arch my brow and nod. Not a flat-out no. 
 
User3242: Anything you want, baby. You name the time and the place.
 
MissMia: I think we’ll stick to here and now. I need your help with a…project of mine. 
 
User3242: Mmm, sounds kinky. I like it. 
 
MissMia: Ew, no. Gross. Get your mind out of the gutter. 
 
Get your mind out of the gutter? She knows she’s on a hook- up site, right? Is she roleplaying? Playing hard to get? 
 
User3242: The minute I saw your picture, my mind went straight to the gutter and all the terrible, dirty, wonderful things I would do to you.

 

 

~MEET THE AUTHOR~
I am a lover of romance novels that feature strong heroines who know that the loves that may come into their lives are always the icing, and never the cake.

I have loved romance novels since I was a teen, sneaking them into my Bible studies at my all-girls Catholic school. I love strong heroines who know that the men that may come into their lives are always the icing, and never the cake.

Thanks to my own marriage, I have learned that the challenges of life can only help to make love stronger and I am grateful to my partner for embodying all the magic that love can offer.

When I am not writing or dreaming up new love stories, I am working in a retirement community outside of Boston that provides me with enough writing material for ten lifetimes.

descriptiondescriptiondescriptiondescription~WRITING – PLOT – PACE~ This turned out to be such a sweet story. Jade Webb is a new (to me) author, so I wasn’t sure what to expect going into this one. So many books lately have been less than stellar, and it worried me this would be another one. Our first introduction to Diego left a lot to be desired, but I’ll get into that more in the “hero” section. The writing itself was quite good. This author has a very enjoyable ease to her writing. It was also well paced considering it is on the longer side page wise. The plot was engaging, and as I mentioned sweet. The synopsis lead me to believe this would be a romantic suspense novel, and it kind of was, but the romance between Mia and Diego took center stage, leaving the suspense aspect a little underdeveloped. Last, the ending felt a little rushed and I would have loved to have seen this couple get an epilogue. 

 

~HERO~
DIEGO…Diego started out a little rough for me. I think the author went a little too overboard on the manwhore borderline alcoholic details. A hero that sleeps with anything and everything and needs his older sister to come get him after he pukes all over his shoes because he is drunk AGAIN doesn’t make the best first impression on a reader. However, even with all that the author somehow managed to make him celibate for months. *shrug*  Anyway…despite the rough beginning I quickly warmed up to Diego. He was a great hero. Sweet. Funny. Sexy. Loyal.

 

~HEROINE~
MIA…I loved Mia right from the start. She was just such a likable character. Geeky. Funny. Sweet. Wore her heart on her sleeve. Feisty.

~SECONDARY CHARACTERS~
This book was super low on secondary characters. That said, Diego’s sister and her husband intrigued me a lot. I wouldn’t mind reading a book about their romance.

 

~HEAT LEVEL~
MEDIUMISH…This couple doesn’t even meet face to face until just over halfway through the book. There are a couple phone/video sex scenes before they physically meet that was hot. Once they meet we get a few more sex scenes, and they were suitably spicy. 

 

~ANGST LEVEL – SEXUAL HISTORIES~
LOW…this one was super low angst and very insta-lovey. Neither were virgins. It is never mentioned how long the heroine has been celibate, but since she hasn’t been out of her apartment for eight months, I will go with that. The hero was a HUGE manwhore, and we get a couple scenes of him (right at the beginning) with other women hanging on him, but “little Diego” took a siesta a few months earlier so it is mentioned he hasn’t slept with anyone for a few months as well. There is also zero OW or OM drama.

 

~IN THE END~
Did I enjoy it? Completely!     
Was it perfect? Almost. There were a couple things here and there (like the heroine’s changing hair color) that I thought could have been better executed, but overall it was a very enjoyable read.
Would I recommend it? 100% YES!     
Who would enjoy this book? I think most readers would enjoy this story. I would also say this would be considered 100% safe by those that worry about that type of thing. description
