Cyber crime and romance,incorporating these two together makes the plot intriguing. However,for now I will pass this one. Thanks for the review!

This book sounds like a novel on cyberwar to combat terrorists. This suspenseful novel includes a romantic plot. I recommend this book to all lovers of internet war stories. Congrats to the author on BOTD!

I think the cyber war and the drone attack makes this book very relevant today, given the current political climate and the issues many are facing in regards to social media.

Nice to know that the book was suspenseful, intense and filled with action (fighting terrorists). Not too much of a fan of the romance, though. Still, nice review.
Just reading... :techie-studyingbrown: :techie-studyinggray:

I quite agree with your view of the book cover: it's rather simplistic and lacking in creativity. But I enjoy a suspenseful novel, so I am glad that the story is so intriguing. Thanks for your review.

'Official Review: Cynthia and Dan by Dorothy May Mercer' well discusses the superb theme of advancement of computer technology in the story. Even a reader who does not have any idea of computers will be able to assimilate the content into his or her life. I was able to absorb, grasp and make the reading matter a part of life!

As usual, the book cover was not too interesting. But as long as the stories are greatly told then I think a good job is done here by the author. Thanks!

I love a romantic suspense novel. Though, I agree with you about the cover. I would not have selected this title had I not read your review. I have read the sample and I am so confused about this Sky fellow. He seems sketchy and not in a good way. I need to read the rest of the book to see how he turns out. Thank you for the brilliant review.

The cover of the book looks unprofessionally designed. I will pass on reading this book. I dislike books about terrorists. I also don't want to read about women’s health issues or cyber attacks/war.

With the increased incidents of terrorism around the world, this would be a good novel to read. Thanks for the review.
