Book Description: 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 such a fun story! Leaving small town life for a chance at the big city, Michelle starts a job in the call center of a large company. Running into a cute IT guy the first week of work, Michelle discovers her job may already be on the line due to outsourcing. With her new life possibly falling apart around her, the only thing she has to look forward to is her new relationship with Sark.  

There were a couple of things I really liked about this story. First was the characters. Michelle and Sark (a.k.a. Noah) seemed pretty real. Noah was not the typical billionaire CEO we read about so much – dark, brooding, painful past – you get the picture. He was a fun-loving guy who liked simple things. Michelle was smart, quirky, and not afraid to take chances. Though, it is a bit odd she would not have thought to ask her boyfriend his last name after they had been dating two or three weeks. 

The second thing I liked was the realism. Having lived in Iowa for the past 18 years, I completely understood where Michelle was coming from and got the references to small-town life.

I do wish the book would have been a bit longer. It was great up to the very end and then just cut off. I would have loved to have known what happened between the last chapter and the epilogue. Overall, though, a light, fun story.

About the Author: By day, Lynne Silver lives the suburban soccer mom life; volunteering with the PTA, doing laundry and working. By night she enters the sensuous world of alpha males and passionate heroines.

She calls the nation’s capital home and lives in an old fixer-upper with her husband and their two sons. When not writing romance, she reads it. Lots of it. Over and over and over again, preferably with a bag of M&Ms in hand. 

She is represented by literary agent, Jessica Alvarez of Bookends LLC 

Fun Facts about Lynne:
1. She has no sense of direction and could get lost on her way from the kitchen to the bathroom.

2. She grew up in Miami and is a huge Hurricanes fan. (The football team, not the natural disaster.)

3. Speaking of natural disasters…she lived through Hurricane Andrew, though her car and much of her house did not. To this day she is scared of storms and windy days.

4. Lynne eats a lot of sushi and considers herself a bit of a connoisseur. She and her husband considered writing a sushi guide at one time.
