ARC Review: Break Me by Tiffany Snow

Break Me
Author: Tiffany Snow
Series: Corrupted Hearts (Book 2)
Publication: Montlake Romance (March 14, 2017)

Description: Just a few weeks ago, computer prodigy China Mack’s typical night in involved Endor Star Wars pajamas and a sensible bedtime. Now she’s dating gorgeous tech guru Jackson Cooper—one of Forbes’s Top Ten Eligible Billionaires—much to the Twitterverse’s delight.

Turns out, going from socially inept hermit to poster girl for geek chic has its challenges. China’s relationship gets even more complicated because her role heading the top-secret Vigilance program—where she’s partnered with Superman clone Clark Slattery—makes her a target. And when ruthless businessman Simon Lu plans to co-opt Vigilance software to blackmail government and military employees, he’ll need China’s cooperation—willing or otherwise.

But not every enemy is so easily identified. Some hide in plain sight, in very high places, and mistaking foe for friend could be the last mistake China ever makes…

My Thoughts: China Mack returns in her second adventure and this time she has to keep the beyond-top-secret computer program that she is running out of the hands of the Chinese. She also has to learn how to deal with being in a relationship with billionaire computer company owner Jackson Cooper. This is all new territory for China who prizes her routine above all.

A genius IQ, OCD, and a position high on the Asperger's spectrum aren't exactly the right skills for dealing with a romance. The romance is even more complicated when her boyfriend is under the scrutiny of the Department of Justice for the dealings of his company. China has to take extreme measures to get the DoJ off his back and looking in the right direction.

I like China for her vulnerability. I like that she inspires loyalty in her employees. I like that the is a nerd in the best sense of the word. I like her relationships with her boyfriend Jackson and her partner and friend Clark.

This thriller got quite intense and had me on the edge of my chair. Fans of techno-thrillers with characters who are easy to relate to and like will enjoy this one.

Favorite Quote:
I never thought I'd be one of those girls who felt at home in a man's arms, but we fit so well together. It made me feel . . . not alone . . . which was a big deal. I'd felt alone and been alone for a lot of my life. Loneliness was just part of my daily existence. To not be lonely . . . was incredibly pleasing. And addicting.
I got this one in exchange for an honest review from NetGalley. You can buy your copy here.
