Not as enjoyable as I hoped

Any additional comments?

I had hoped that I'd enjoy this series more, but I didn't. I liked the idea behind the series, so two thumbs up for that! I couldn't get into the heroine, though - I thought she was selfish, and if I were a guy I wouldn't have been attracted to her at all. The narration didn't help. She's an expert hacker but sounded like a stereotypical phone sex honey. That clashed in my mind when I was mentally visualizing the character as I listened to the story. I think that a cool, confident tone would have been more effective than the seductive kitten tone.Which is ironic, because of her lack of experience with the opposite sex. So, these things together made a great story idea less believable or compelling for me.

I provided this review in exchange for a complimentary copy of the audiobook from the author, narrator, or publisher.

Romance Thriller

I was hoping the narrator would go for a more nerdy portrayal of the main character. I felt her voice didn't really portray Ember, but with that said I liked her normal voice so YMMV.

I was a little skeptical of the plot from early on in the book. I mean, since when did hacking become synonymous with typing correctly quickly? I didn't buy the romance between Ember and Ryland and would have preferred without it. Ember complains about Ryland's personality and smugness then talk about how attractive he is in the same sentence felt more like a teen romance. And making out in the middle of their first job? The audible description focuses on hacking, but it's really a sideline. This is more of a romance than a thriller.
