The story is written in historical present and told in 1st person from the point of view of the heroine, which works well for the purposes of the plot as the reader is largely left in the dark about the motivations of the hero and it gives the heroine room to speculate about his motives and imbues him with an air of mystery.
The story vacillates between hilariously funny and terribly embarrassing. After finishing college, our young heroine Fanny has recently started work at a software company as an apps tester, although her goal is to get into programming herself. Somehow she ends up having to test a sophisticated set of sex toys for an important client. Unfortunately she loses her test subject, so she decides to test the various toys on herself, only during her first testing there is a significant glitch which ends by her calling her mysterious boss by mistake, who monitors the testing himself for some reason. After this monumentally embarrassing incident Fanny figures she has nothing to lose and on an impulse enlists the help of her boss for the testing (which of course has nothing to do with him being oh so scrumptious), which in turn leads to a whole host of new problems, both professional and personal…
I really enjoyed the geek speak and programming lingo (since it says on Dima Zales’ bio that he has a background in programming, I assume it’s accurate). I also understand that "embarrassment" is an important ingredient in rom-com, but at times it felt like too much, or rather, whereas I was still suffering from secondary embarrassment, the heroine and hero seemed to have gotten over it quite blithely, which struck me as just a tad unrealistic. So, as much as I enjoyed this cheerful and diverting romp, I felt that the characters lacked depth, hence I have to withhold the last star.

Und ich muss sagen, ich habe es nicht bereut. Das Buch ist so absolut herrlich lustig geschrieben, dass ich mehr als einmal laut loslachen musste. Selbst die absolut peinlichen Szenen waren am Ende so lustig und das ganze Buch macht neugierig auf einen zweiten Teil in der Reihe, der dann die Geschichte von Vlads Schwester erzählt.
Das Buch ist in sich abgeschlossen und hat ein Happy End. Zum Inhalt ist nicht viel zu sagen, die kurze Beschreibung sagt eigentlich alles. Ich habe das Buch an einem Tag gelesen, was mir fast ein wenig zu schnell ging, aber irgendwie konnte ich es nicht weglegen.
