No Strings Attached is my very first book by author Julie Moffett. I was a bit nervous reading this book for a couple of reasons. One - I am normally not a mystery reader. The blurb looked interesting and since no books in my preferred genre were demanding my attention, I thought I would try something different. Two - and this one is the biggie, I was jumping into a series that is well established. It can be very hit or miss not starting with a series from the beginning. Lucky for me, not only d ...more

Lexi always finds a way to make me smile. Whether it's with her endearing social awkwardness or the way she unwittingly stumbles into THE WORST situations, I get a kick out of this lady. She's smart and determined and it doesn't matter if she sometimes says the wrong things at the wrong times, she eventually figures things out.


Smart heroines, man. They do it for me. It doesn't hurt in the slightest that her man is crazy about her and has the training to help her out when things go so

I say this for every book by Julie Moffett that I read...I LOVE THIS BOOK. The wonderful characters help make the extremes of the book perfectly plausible. The plot is crafted with a balance of emotion, tension, action, and humor and races at a hold-your-breath pace. I drool or\ver Slash for his sensitive side as much as his hot Italian body or maybe more. I love watching Lexi develop into a bit less of a nerd while remaining a total geek! The humor alone would make the book a winner; oh my, the ...more

There’s something to be said for a comforting series. The sort where each new installment is exciting and you know what you’re mostly going to get but that’s the drawcard. This is such a series for me. To be honest, the previous book was probably for me, the weakest installment but this one? This is definitely one of the best so it was awesome to see such a strong return to form.

Lexi is so much fun and I love that in this book, she really shines. She’s smart, that’s always reinforced in each boo

Can I just say how much I totally love this series?!? Every book gets better and better as you get to know the characters more deeply and watch them adapt and struggle and change. It is one of those series that can be both serious and emotional and still laugh out loud funny. There were definitely a few scenes that had me laughing out loud in inappropriate ( like the doctor's waiting room).

This story has Lexi intercepting a hack into the NSA. Since Slash works for them, she quickly turns to him
The Lexi Carmichael-series is one of my favorite series. The stories are very well plotted and crafted and the characters develop over the course of the series. Number 8 already and still going very very strong.

Lexi is attending HACK CON when she stumbles into a situation where it is clear national security is threatened. After an attempt on her life (again!) The situation escalates and soon Lexi and Slash are at it again to save the US against a very real threat, ofcourse with the help of their

No Strings Attached by Julie Moffett was another entertaining and captivating mystery starring my favorite geek heroine, Lexi Carmichael.

Lexi, Slash, the Zimmerman twins and Basia are all back in this complex mystery that includes "major" hacking skills, a super bad virus, assassinations, kidnapping and a bridal shower that goes quickly out of control. Edge of the seat suspense mixed with love and laughter made this a books I could not put down until I finished it.

Oop's I did it again.... This is not just Lexi's saying but it should be Julie Moffetts as well, because she has done it yet again.

No Strings Attached went above and beyond awesome.

Lexi's little black cloud explodes in this book right from the first page.
Action packed non-stop adventure from the first to the last page.
Cyber security at its best, potential terrorism, potential nuclear fallout, mad men, assassins, FBI, NSA and Lexi can only trust those closet to her, Slash, Elvis, Xavier her broth

I really love this series and this book is no exception. It was exciting and fun with just enough light-hearted moments to balance out the action and serious parts. I love the camaraderie between the characters. Elvis fans will be happy to hear that he has a nice amount of "page time" in this book. Basia and Xavier have less, but they do have a few good scenes. Fans of the series will enjoy this book. While I suppose it *could* be read and enjoyed by someone unfamiliar with the series, I wouldn' ...more

Oh what to say. I love this series. Hands down favorite heroine ever. This series (an this book) keeps me entertained with the fast paced action, smart herione, drool worthy Slash and a good dose of humor. {spoilers} My husband actually had to stop and ask me what was wrong I was laughing so hard during the scene with Basia trying on her dress {spoilers}. Ms. Moffett is doing an excellent job keeping a series going strong without lapsing into the boredom and repetitiveness that some chic-mysteri ...more

Lexi is back in hilarious form! I love the zany things that Lexi does, she really makes me laugh. My poor husband was roused from a deep sleep because I was laughing so much--- I just could not put the book down. The bridal shop antics and the UZI experience had me rolling. Julie Moffett has created such a wonderful group of characters who feel like friends. Don't miss this book!
I have loved all of the books in this series. A big thanks to author Ritter Ames for giving a copy of this book to

I am glad that I won the goodreads prize book. It opened a new reading series for me. If I could give it 6 stars I would have. It is currently in the news about black/white hacks. You are hooked from the first chase . Trying to solve the mystery was a very good challenge too. As were the antics of Lexi. I can not wait to start reading the rest of this series. There is plenty of romance too. It is well-written with good well rounded characters.

This installment in the Lexi Carmichael series continues to provide a great mix of espionage, cyber-threats, comedy and romance. The cast of characters continues to develop, especially Lexi and Slash, and the plots remain interesting but not Byzantine.

"No Strings Attached" is a non-stop roller coaster of a book. It is a cyber mystery but with wonderful humor added. I wanted to read the book in one sitting. I received this book as part of the Goodreads Giveaway program.

I really identify with Lexi and her friends. Life has not been easy for me, being shy and bookish through school and college made me a loner. I am most comfortable with a book in my hands.

"No Strings Attached" by Julie Moffett is an intriguing novel that kept me turning the pages to see what would happen to Lexi Carmichael next. The book is a fast paced journey into the world of cyber espionage with non-stop action, suspense and humor. A strange combination but somehow it works.

I was asked to read No Strings Attached in exchange for an honest review. I appreciate the opportunity to read this work. This book is about a girl who accidentally intercepts a message and uncovers a dangerous plot that could have national security implications. She and her cyber-geek friends work to keep world peace.

No Strings Attached is a very well written book full of adventure, mystery, and humor. There were scenes that made me laugh out loud. I especially enjoyed the main character’s soci

I loved this book! This is one of my favorite series and this book is a
great addition to it. Lexi is a computer geek that inadvertently
intercepts a threat to national security. Before she knows it, she is
on the run for her life while trying to stop a dangerous threat - - -and
plan a bridal shower for her best friend. Lexi has no idea what to do
for a bridal shower or how to be a maid of honor. Her awkward attempts
made me laugh.

Lexi's relationship with her boyfriend progresses in interesting ways

The Lexi Carmichael series is amazing. But this latest book in the series even outdoes the previous books. Things just happen around Lexi and Slash is there to help. This read is based on plausible computer hacking concepts between governments and the way Lexi, the Zimmermans and of course Slash go about saving the country, solving the murders and getting their revenge is so twisted and full of crazy events I couldn't put the book down until it was finished! AND the humor kept me laughing out lo ...more

3 stars

This book was a little out of my normal books but I have to say I did enjoy the book. It had that mystery about the book. The characters were very likable and I really enjoyed the banter between everyone but at tines I felt there was too much going on and the story got sidetracked from the main story. Lexi was a fun character. Her personality was great and she just felt like a typical woman trying to get through a day. Slash was very alpha. H
