Sequel to her debut book, MY HERO.
When she was twelve years old, Naomi Connor innocently hacked into Brennan Shipping, a company with many sensitive defense contracts, and almost destroyed them. When she realized what she'd done, Naomi turned herself in. She wasn't charged because of Brennan CEO Mary Casey's compassion.
Now, twenty years later, former hacker Naomi is a computer security expert and leads a team hired to test Brennan's new security system. She works closely with Mary Casey's son, Joe, a lawyer and the current CTO for the family-owned company. Joe has strong negative feelings about hackers and he doesn't know Naomi was the hacker back then. They both have rules about romancing coworkers and resist each other as long as possible. But the attraction is hot and they fall in love.
This story was emotional, steamy and funny. The way Naomi and Joe got turned on by speaking "geek" was a kick. Naomi was an amazing character - smart, kind, honest, witty - a strong woman. A terrific sequel, well written, can't think of a thing I'd change.
