[Kame's Review]: "Love, Technically"

Love, Technically by Lynne Silver
Publisher: Entangled: Ever After (July 29, 2013) 
Genre: Contemporary Romance 

Billionaire CEO and computer whiz Noah Frellish is a king among geeks. Women are attracted to his money, but he'd love to meet someone who's actually interested in him. When he helps the sweet and sexy Michelle Kolson with a printing problem, she confuses him for a help desk technician. Noah knows he should clear up this case of mistaken identity, but would she still like him if she knew he was the boss?

Michelle thinks life in Chicago is perfect, as is the whirlwind romance with her smoking-hot coworker. When she unexpectedly finds her job on the chopping block and the man she fell headfirst into bed with running the company, will she abandon her dreams?

Noah must convince the small-town girl to stay in the big city—and that he really is the man she fell for.

Kame's Review:

Michelle has decided to take a chance. She has moved away from her small hometown in Iowa. Away from the life her mother expected her to live, leaving behind the high school sweetheart everyone thought she would marry for a chance to experience big city life. She is in Chicago and with little experience was hired as a call center operator. Terrified she won’t get paid if she doesn’t printout her hours and timesheet she asks a Tech guy to help her. Unknowingly she has found the CEO and founder of Lightware. Noah just wants to be the Tech guy he once was, the guy who loved to code and work out answers to the what-ifs in his head. When Michelle approaches him for help, he thought nothing of introducing himself as Sark, the nickname his friends use. Soon he realizes Michelle has no idea he is her boss’s boss’s boss.

This is a quick fun read.  Please don’t let the concept of this book being about a Tech firm scare you from reading this book. Any ambiguous Tech terms are explained as the character of Michelle has no clue either. Michelle was very believable in her role of small town girl wanting more. I applaud her for being so daring and not taking the easy way of following the life everyone expected for her. I have worked as Tech support and am a college professor in a community college; Lynne Silver created Michelle’s character as a typical student of mine, down to the aptitude and drive.  Sark, as Michelle refers to Noah in the entire book, was great too. It was nice to see a buff hero that was a Techie. I got invested in these characters and really didn’t want to put the book down. The conflict was expected and somewhat telegraphed, but I enjoyed the unique resolution. 

This book was a great diversion, and a different type of character set than I normally read. I read it fast and enjoyed every word.  This is not the romance to read if you want multiple hot steamy scenes, but the book to read if you want one that has characters with a believable connection.  I will definitely look for more from this author.
