This was just an OK read for me. Maybe since I am a code monkey IRL, I had immediate problems with how Anna Marie made so many assumptions about Baxter. First, he can't possibly have ambition since he works where she does. Then, she finds out he's a gamer, so he must be a loser, spending all his free time playing games. Then, she finds out about his side business and immediately assumes it's more a hobby than anything else.

Baxter, on the other hand, thinks Anna Marie can do anything she sets he

Liked it, but as someone who does understand code there were some things that bugged me. For the layperson though this is a good story with a cute geek for the hero.

A few moments made me think Armstrong got all her gaming knowledge from the internet, like having die-hard gamers own a Wii console. Yes the Wii is a gaming platform, but it's not marketed at or usually played by gamers - and Anna Marie should have known what it was. Also Baxter mentions binary code. Very rarely do people actually co

This really deserves a 3.5. The author included alternative sex scenes and that's a plus in my book. It also never hurts to have the bad guy get caught in the end. But do codemonkeys always go armed? Hell! Watch out Microsoft, I say!

Growing up, I had a vivid imagination with lots of imaginary playmates and stuffed animals to keep me company. I even had crayon box adventures where the colors had a kingdom and tales to tell. And who says pink is a girl color? In my world, he was a prince.

From the time I could form my letters, this translated into fanciful writings from poems on eye shadow (I was six) to a story about an Island
