From New York Times best-selling author, CD Reiss, comes an all new, sexy tale of secrets, intrigue, betrayal, and a love worth crossing a continent for. Taylor Harden is a man on the edge. The edge of fame. The edge of untold wealth. The edge of utter humiliation. He built an unhackable system, and in front of everyone, it gets hacked. His reputation goes from king to goat in a split second. Boom. Like that. Some dude in Barrington, USA (AKA Nowhere) has locked down Taylor's code, and if he does not get it back, he is going to be wearing a monkey suit for the rest of his life. Except, this guy? This hacker from Nowhere? He is not a guy. Harper Watson is all woman. And she has a plan for Taylor, his code, and his body.

CD Reiss is a genius. She is NOT your average romance author. Be prepared to be riveted to this story because it draws you in and clamps down on your attention. You won't want to hit pause until the end. The story of the computer genius on the edge of super stardom, fame and fortune gets hacked and it's not at all who he expects, or why. CD Reiss is a story craftsman of the highest level and you'll feel every inch of that.
Christian Fox brought his usual A game of narration, bringing all the characters to life. His voice acting skills are always stellar and The King of Code is another jewel in his crown. If you haven't listened to him narrate, you're missing out. His narration is transfixing, passionate, suspenseful, and flat out SEXY! Taylor Harden and his dominating spirit comes to life through him and will turn you on in every way.
The additional effects and chapter transitions make this a completely unique audio. See if you can pick up on the hidden meanings!
Well worth the credit and a story you won't be able to set down. Keep driving, walking your dog, doing your housework, and ignoring your family until this tale is complete. It's worth every moment.
Holy hell! I don’t even know where to start. From the get-go I knew that KING OF CODE would be a book that I needed to read – like yesterday. And not only because it’s written by the amazingly talented CD Reiss, but because it’s a hacker romance – something unique and rare in itself. But it gets even better: In this story, it is not the hero who is the infamous hacker whose motives we don’t know. I mean – yes, of course Taylor Harden is a hacker – a black hat gone white – but he is not the one we know almost nothing about until close to the end – no, it was the heroine, Harper Watson who was all intriguing and mysterious. Pure brilliancy!
Taylor Harden: Hacker extraordinaire who is about to release his un-hackable system QI4. He is reaching for the sun – arrogant, cocksure and invincible. Whoa, was he sure of himself! The motivation speeches he gave to his employees literally gave me goosebumps!
But then … Boom! Enter Harper Barrington: small-town princess and a very talented but much underrated (hello, she’s a girl!) hacker herself. In one fell swoop he knocks Taylor off his feet, simply outsmarts him, intent to teach him a lesson – a lesson about success, life and love. She is clever, fierce, strong-willed and loyal – maybe even a bit crazy. A heroine that dethrones the self-proclaimed King of Code in every possible way.
Harper fascinated me, I couldn’t read her, couldn’t quite figure out her motives – while I might have suspected some moves, she completely stunned me with others. She is so incredibly strong, expertly hiding her vulnerability under her hacker-exterior, all while completely exposing Taylor’s. Finally, there’s a heroine that holds all the cards, letting the guy dancing after her pipe and not the other way around, I celebrated and admired her in every which way. Hell, yes!!
Harper and Taylor loose themselves in a dance of mutual seduction, all while taking the reader to a trip to the dark and downside of the internet era, full of hacks, spies and code. Nothing is ever predictable or what it seems, clues are misleading – and beware – read carefully, otherwise you will be missing substantial tiny pieces that are needed to solve the puzzle as a whole. I’m left in awe of the ingenious imagination of CD Reiss.
Now let’s talk about the audio version: Wow, talk about taking the reading experience to a whole new level! There are some bold technical sound effects which fit the story perfectly: There’s the cello at the beginning of each chapter, and, as I’ve been told, the sounds aren’t random. Then there’s keyboard-clicking and some voice-layover whenever it fits. All of that makes the story even more intense and gooseflesh-provoking! And then there is Christian Fox who did a terrific job in bringing the characters to life – accents, voices and all. It was the first of his works I’ve listened to, but I’m already on the hunt for more! He sure has the potential to become one of my top favorite narrators.
