Insightful review :techie-studyingbrown: Thank you! I think it's a good read and with quite modern concept too. With that, I'd like to say I agree with you, not liking the book cover, I'd go further in saying that I think there'd be a much better fit cover design and title as well, considering the depth of this book's story line. I mean, this book is not just about Cynthia and Dan, although they're a big part of it. Overall, I still think this book presents a very good story, and your review made us all see just how beautiful it is :D Best regards to you and congratulations to the author on the #BOTD :tiphat:

In as much as I generally enjoy reading the romance genre, I prefer when it is combined with something else, as this keeps the story interesting and engaging. Suspense, romance, cyber war and a strong female character - just the kind of book I love reading. It goes into my 'To read" shelf. Thank you for a great review!

Cyber warfare is for IT geniuses and a mixture of romance and cyber warfare is a story on its own. It will be nice to read this book.

I don't usually gravitate to books that include all that cyber, technology stuff. After reading the review, though, it sounds like this book has the potential to be a really great read. I love a good romance novel, and this one appears to be full of action and suspense, which is an added bonus. Thanks for the awesome review, might have to check this book out!

I am looking forward to reading this! It's next on my list. I enjoy how there are two different storylines, action and romance. A book about cyber security and computer geniuses is very modern and smart of the author. I agree with you that the cover of the book is not appealing. I would suggest the author change the cover to be something that attracts the reader instead of deterring them.

I completely agree with you on the book cover design. It was a little off putting, but the novel sounds like quite a thriller and I would love to check it out soon!

I definately agree- the book cover looked very boring to me, and honestly, if I had not read this review, I would have never even considered reading it. It sounds like the perfect book to take on vacation and read while enjoying a trip.

Thank you for this review! I've just started this book and look forward to seeing how such different topics will be connected. I too am not really a fan of the front cover, it feels to me to lack professionalism. That being said, I'm a chapter in and look forward to reading the rest.

Despite the cover page not appealing to me, this sounds like a great book to read. I like stories where you are left in suspense till the last page.The reviewer has done a good job, kudos to her.

We would be hypocritical if of all the people in the world, we, book reviewers, ended up judging a book by its cover. Because the interior of the book is fantastic, to say the least. Intriguing, fun, engaging, well constructed are some of the many adjectives that can be used to describe the book.
To go along with this is a very well written review which really focuses on the key aspects of the book and keeps it tight and refreshing.

World issues, cyber attacks, women's issues, and romance? Sounds right up my alley. This looks like an exciting book that's packed full of potential conversations. I'm not frightened by controversial topics, so this could be a rich read for me. Thanks for your review!

I never wanted to read this book because the cover wasn't alluring. The review makes the book sound interesting so I'll check it out.
