I really enjoyed the book. It had all the makings of a really good contemporary romance with a little bit of mystery and action. Samiah was the perfect lead. She is a brilliant computer engineer who is dominating in a predominantly white male field. I was completely in awe of her persona and the confidence she exuded in profession and personal life. She was a force not to be reckoned with because she worked hard in every aspect of her life. If there was a character I would strive to be, it would be Samiah.
The friendship between these women is truly remarkable. I loved watching them be there for each other, stand up for each other, and encourage each other in every aspect of their life. They met over crap circumstances and could have easily dismissed eachother off, but instead they took control over their situation and made something beautiful from it.
The way the author wrote this was effortlessly good. She had you entertained and laughing, but also your heart was invested in this story, rooting for these characters' own personal triumphs. The multitude of the depth of these characters was inspiring. It was so refreshing to see a woman who was a computer engineer and excelled in her field rather than a stereotypical occupation. It’s rare to find diversity in occupation in romance books and I applause the author for thinking outside the box with this. I also appreciate that the author dove into the complexities of what it is like for not only a woman, but a woman of color to have a prestigious position and the intricacies and demands that position would entail.
One of the reasons I prefer first person perspective over third person is because you get a closer connection with each character. I love being able to read inner thoughts or feel exactly how the character is feeling because they describe it in their own words. This book is unique because though it was written in third person, I got all the amazing feelings as if it was written in first person. The author was able to convey the exact feels and thoughts without the disconnect that is often associated with a third person narrative.
I really enjoyed this book and I’m so excited to see what is next for this author and fingered cross this is a series where Taylor and London each get a book. Now if you will excuse me while I go find a job that has weekly competitions that lead to massage and strawberry and kiwi smoothies or ice cream lunches.
Things I loved about this romance:
❣️ Our heroine, Samiah Brooks, is smart, funny, invested in her own future but also intent on helping others.
❣️ Our hero, Daniel Collins, is smart, funny, capable and caring.
❣️ Their love story is modern, unique, believable, and so very well told.
❣️ Besides the romance there is also the exploration of positive female friendships and how important they can be to overall happiness.
❣️ Samiah is a Black female in a STEM career and the challenge she faced growing up interested in this field, pursuing this field, and succeeding in this field is fully presented and inspiring.
❣️ The steam level was just right and condom use is explicitly stated (this is always a big deal to me).
Things I didn’t like about this romance:
Cute story of Daniel, an undercover techie with the feds and Samiya an IT genius who works for a tech company. She and two other women meet when they realize their “boyfriend” is cheating on all three of them and they partner up and create the Boyfriend Project, they will swear off men for 6 months while they work on themselves and their own passions in life. For Samia, it’s developing a friendship app. But, then she meets Daniel who is undercover at her agency and as much as they try to resist (and they do for 2/3 of the book), you just can’t fight off these intense attractions, what’s meant to be will be.
I liked the fact that Daniel was biracial, I liked the fact that Samiya was so smart and I thought the author did a good job describing how hard it is for women of color to be in STEM fields, something Daniel didn’t always get. Loved their chemistry and I was on pins and needles waiting to see if Daniel was going to have to betray Samiya for the job.
Great couple, glad they got to their HEA and hope Taylor and London get their own books.
Though I know next to nothing about the tech field I enjoyed the details about the app development and other nuggets about the workplace. I have no idea if they were accurate but they felt genuine. I also appreciated Samiah’s explanation of her perfectionism. I have no doubt her experiences of having to work twice as hard to get half as far are more than legitimate.
The highlight of the story was watching the burgeoning friendship between Samiah, Taylor, & London. Their “meet-cute” was one for the ages.
This was my first book from Farrah Rochon (though I adore her on Twitter). It will not be my last.
Samiah and Daniel have instant chemistry and I could not put down the book. It is very rare for me to read a book in one sitting these days, but the pages flew past as their story unfolded.
You can always count on Farrah Rochon for a great read, witty dialog, and characters who are perfect for each other. I cannot wait for the rest of the series.
