Review: Love, Technically by Lynne Silver

Title: Love, Technically
Series: No
Author: Lynne Silver
Published: July 2013, Entangled Publishing
Format: Ebook received for review

Billionaire CEO and computer whiz Noah Frellish is a king among geeks. Women are attracted to his money, but he'd love to meet someone who's actually interested in him. When he helps the sweet and sexy Michelle Kolson with a printing problem, she confuses him for a help desk technician. Noah knows he should clear up this case of mistaken identity, but would she still like him if she knew he was the boss?

Michelle thinks life in Chicago is perfect, as is the whirlwind romance with her smoking-hot coworker. When she unexpectedly finds her job on the chopping block and the man she fell headfirst into bed with running the company, will she abandon her dreams?

Noah must convince the small-town girl to stay in the big city—and that he really is the man she fell for.

This was my first book by author Lynne Silver, and I’ll definitely be adding more. I found her writing to be enjoyable with an easy flow and entertaining storyline. I’ve read a couple of “geek romances” and I have to say, this is a sub-genre that is quickly rising to the top of my favorites. Love, Technically was engaging from beginning to end.

In Love, Technically we have Michelle who is a transplant to Chicago from Iowa. She’s a small town girl who just needed more than what working at the local supercenter could offer her. So she struck out on her own in one of the biggest cities in the country. Right away I like her. Not only is she very kind and tenderhearted, the bravery is takes to make a move like this endears her to me. I feel slightly protective of Michelle, but at the same time, I am sure she can handle her own. Small town doesn’t translate to dumb.

Right away at work she runs into after hours computer issues. Luckily a computer geek happens out of no where. Ladies, meet Sark. Sark is sexy and in shape. He’s the type of hottie geek that a girl like me dreams of. Sark realizes something right away – Michelle doesn’t realize who he is. He sees an opportunity to get to know her as himself, not as the CEO of the company she just hired into. I found him to be a sincere character, and I loved him all the way through.

This is the type of book I could see made into one of those movies on TV with young up and coming actors. It had a fun and flirty feel to it. There did come a point where things were a little heartbreaking. I mean, nothing good can come from hiding your identity. Miscommunication at this point is an ugly monster. Near the end, there were a few scenes that kind of unraveled for me. I was expecting a big overture, and I got something more of a stumble with good luck. It worked for the pair, but I would have really loved something a bit more intense and dramatic.

The drink in his hand was messing with his need to touch her and cup her bottom as they swayed to the music. His hands couldn't go where they wanted, but his mouth could. He leaned down to kiss her, and she met his mouth halfway. She tasted like beer and warm, sexy woman. The kiss grew deeper, stronger. Around them other couples clung to each other and used the slow dance as an excuses to get close to their partner.

He stopped pretending and gave in to what he really wanted. Keeping his mouth on hers, he back them off the dance floor to a quieter corner of the club. Somewhere along the way, they lost their drinks on a table, on the floor. He didn't know, didn't care. What mattered was keeping his connection with Michelle.

After finishing this book, I think I would recommend this to people who are fans of YA or NA romance, or geek romance. It isn’t really huge on the hot and heavy scenes (save for maybe one?  I didn't keep count - so I could be wrong), although there are some terrific spur of the moment kisses which just made me melt into a big puddle. It was a fun and easy romance with fun characters.
