He started off just wanting to get her into to bed but she refused and then they started to get to know each other. It was a love story with bits of a twist but not much so most of the story was about their story. Quirky and sweet. ...more

She has joined an online dating service at the encouragement of her best friend. Had lots of people interested, but only one profile that really interested her. They have alot in common. This starts an hot texting relationship between the two of them. Now most of this has already taken place before we meet Amy. At the moment we meet her, she is a college graduate working in a coffee shop during the day, and at night working on an app that she wants to sell. That pretty much is the start of the story, the intense flirting relationship with Rex Blue and still not try be distracted just as she is about to sell her app to biggest tech firm in Philly.
I don't want to retell the story I want to try put my feelings down about it.
1. Amy has someone I liked, she had some blows in her life which is why she is the she us. Lost her Mum at a young age and she feels responsible. Her father is dying of cancer. Another brother is a drug addict.
2. Shane Green (Rex Blue) is her texting guy and it turns out he is a tech billionaire. And his company is the one buying her app and giving her a job. Shane was a lot harder for me to get a bead on. He doesn't come off as an a-hole billionaire. Control freak yes, to the extreme, hates any type press being out there about him. He does have his reasons, but until you learn that it seems a bit much. He likes to be in control and if he and Amy are going to be together then she can't tell anyone.That is his demand, and of course she agrees.
Well like most stories with that kinda premise of course it happens. Their relationship us exposed, which makes Shane very uncomfortable.
Overall I liked the idea and for the most part B.B. Hamel pulled it off, but for me I liked Amy way more than I liked Shane. At one point her old boss comes to see her to tell he's in love with and for just a moment I almost wanted for the two of them to run off together. I do admit that by the end I liked Shane alot more than I did through most of the story. You see that he was willing to change to be with Amy so yeah he grew on me.
For the most part the writing is strong, few minor glitches right at the start that pulled me out the story, but once it got rolling if there was anything it slipped right passed me. I've given Undersold 3 stars, but I would honestly say it more of a 3 1/2 ★'s. It looks like she has another novel coming. I would read it, I think she may have the start of decent series....more

While I gaveIt started off okay then part wat through I was getting to the point I was about to abandon the book but pushed through and finished it. While I gave it 4 stars it's closers to a 3 1/2 stars for me. I enjoyed the story line over all. I understand the needing to leave the readers wanting more. That didn't bother me. I found the switching to everyone pov abit annoying. The stalker surprised me abit which is always a good thing because alot times I can guess who the bad guy I is pretty quickly. Over all it was a decent read enough so that I'll try the next book. If for no other reason than figure about her mother....more
