His Billion Dollar Dilemma by Alexia Adams
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

His Billion Dollar Dilemma,received from NetGalley, was a good read with interesting characters. It centered on Helen, an extremely smart engineer who was roommates with her brother, also a genius, who is trying to save her company. Her boss is selling his company along with the patents she developed. He does not much care what happens to the 30 or so employees at the firm but Helen cares. She does what she has to so that she can save their jobs and in the course of trying to convince the corporate raider who is buying the firm to slice and dice it to sell off the parts for millions of dollars stumbles upon a very good-looking British millionaire that she refers to as a pirate. She gets to know him and sees more in him than how he even knows he is capable of feeling. Simon has had a steady diet of people that either were indifferent to him or betrayed him so Helen has her work cut out for her to convince him to care ab…

Tempted by Her Italian Surgeon by Louisa George
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Tempted by Her Italian Surgeon is a nice, clean read. There is a tiny bit of raciness but this story is more about the relationship developing between Matteo and Ivy.

As these things go they are at cross-purposes which anyone else in information security like myself will tell you we try to secure things in a way that is the least disruptive to the end-users but sometimes it just does not work out that way. But, enforcement of these things usually takes up everyone's time and energy and no one knows this more than Matteo and he goes into this kicki…

The Shiro Project by David S. Khara
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Oh Shiro Project how much I loved you. For me, The Shiro Project was the continuation of a story that just gets better and better. I received an early release copy from Netgalley but was remiss in my duties to post my review at release because I was a bit burned out on serious material and had to read things outside of my normal favorite genres of Urban Fantasy and Thrillers. Unfortunately, this took more than a few weeks and it would have been unfair to read and review books when I was not in the mood for that type of book. I finished The Shiro Project last night and it held my attention just as The Bleiberg Project did. It was the continuation of Agent Morg's story but what was great was we were given more of Elena's history as well. There was a huge twist there and I keep hoping that there is a change with that because she is seriously kick-butt and now that we see more of her humanity it is great getting to know h…
