Review

 

This is a really, really odd book. In some ways, those odd parts are great. I love the heroine. Her inner dialogue is great. The situation is crazy. She acts crazy.

 

Then, pour on the Harlequin Presents elements--the hero is a tech millionaire who is aloof. Marriage of Con.

 

Next, add race, gender, class, and ability into the swirl.

 

There is a lot of fun to be had but there are some glitches in the writing and some unexamined presentation of ability, race, class and gender which make the book go sour in place.

 

However, I did enjoy the crazy over the top of it all.
