"If only dealing with people was as simple as dealing with computers. Computers were logical, methodical, and unambiguous. You input a prompt, it delivered a response. You request a function, it carried out your command. No judgment. No miscommunication.”
Love On My Mind has everything I love. And I really do mean everything. It is no secret that I love books set in Northern California
This book is so cute, shippy, and everything. If you love Trade Me by Courtney Milan, you're going to dig this one as well. They have similar story-telling vibes, are both about technology business. I love the sizzling romance, and intelligent main characters. Mini review to come.
"So let me be clear," he whispered. "I want to kiss you. Not only am I informing you of what I want, it also serves as a notice of my intent. I'm going to kiss you."
It was the sexiest notice she'd ever received.
I cheered for Chelsea throughout the book. A smart and successful PR agent whose professional ambitions are informed by ...more

Adam Bennett might be wealthy, good-looking and CEO of a tech company, but not even his genius could help him be more sociable. He only keeps a very tight group of friends who have always been loyal and trustworthy. Yet when attending one of his press releases for one of his latest products, everyone was more interested on his personal life and not on his product which made him uncomfortable, and in result he turned to his home away from ...more
I probably should have known from the start that I would have trouble understanding this one. My main issue stems from the basis of the premise of the plot and that's implied in the blurb. So really, I only blame myself for having picked up the book (and the second one too...). But I was lured by the promise of an own-voices interracial romance, that ultimately didn't deliver.
If there's one thing I despise both in real life and online is when people act ...more
This book’s biggest strengths is how different and distinct the two main character’s voices are. We get to see both their POVs in the novel which really helps tell the story in a way that shows you all sides. I loved getting into the ...more
My first book by this author and I think I'll read more! Chelsea had to grapple with her personal / professional principles and need for that promotion to partner in her firm. With her lousy childhood she worked so hard to achieve what she did, and to her the partnership was her way to prove all those bullies wrong, that she had made it with her own capabilities and nobody dared ever look down on her again!
But to get this promotion meant lying to her client, Adam ...more

I'm so glad I decided to read this book. This was such a cute and great book. It contributed to changing my perspective on NA/Adult books, towards a more positive side.
I enjoyed reading this a lot. I like both Chelsea and Adam (he was so cute in his own way). They are both unique, independent and determined/passionate in their own ways. This was also probably the first book I read with a character with a mental illness/mental disorder. I'm glad it reflected it in ...more
But in general I'm not a huge fan of the "false pretenses" plot, and this was done in such a basic way. The whole novel with every element was like a paint by numbers and I was SO SAD. I've met Tracey and she so wonderful so I desperately wanted to like this better. I find the heroine character particularly strong (I've already forgotten her name), and I had ...more
If you like your romance with intelligent, competent people who behave like real people with jobs, goals, foibles, etc. then this is the book for you. The main characters, Chelsea and Adam, are both so smart and competent in their respective fields and that's refreshing. This could easily be a Julie James book and her readers would probably enjoy it since it has lots of the same elements: excellent setting and descriptions and characters with real world situations and who behave in ...more
