Sexism = NO

Any additional comments?

Disclaimer - I couldn't finish this book.

Ember Manchester is supposed to be a badass hacker ("one of the most renowned computer hackers in the world: respected, sought out by clients across the globe, and the absolute best at what she does") but all we are hearing about is which guy she wants to bang and how attracted she is to someone. She kisses her boss on maybe her second day of work at her new job. This book was touted as having an awesome female protagonist but this feels just like another (mildly) sexist book about a woman in the tech industry.

I couldn't get past the first few chapters. If this book was about a male hacker, we wouldn't be hearing about which one of his bosses he'd rather sleep with. Gross. Do not recommend at all.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

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.
