I want to be Shana when I grow up. She is a kick-butt strong woman who takes no prisoners and doesn't apologize for anything; unless she was actually in the wrong. She's smart, confident (mostly) and knows who she is, even though that identity is hidden deep. She has a good reason.
Cody and Mike are good guys in all ways. Different childhoods gave them each unique strengths and skills that are called upon when things get a little murky. They are rule followers for justice, just like Shana is a rule breaker for justice. But that causes a few problems in the developing relationship dynamic as the story goes on.
My vote for best supporting character goes to Puss, Shana's cat. The author did a good job describing the relationship and how it got that way between Shana and her cat. If you've never been owned by a cat you won't get it, but I'm sure all can enjoy the relationship and how it evolves as Shana introduces the men into her life.
I liked the background story and thought it moved things along nicely. Had a little difficulty believing all the shenanigans that went on at the office, but I've never owned an office so what do I know? Steamy scenes were well-written and plentiful, although the emotional aspects of the story and how the men fell in love with Shana were a bit taken for granted. Most of the story is from Shana's POV so that is to be expected, but would have liked more in that respect. A good read.
As a computer hacker, she demands justice.
As a woman, she craves two powerful and commanding men.
Shana’s been hacking one of Manhattan’s most corrupt executives, making him pay for what he’s done to his victims. Using her skills, she convinces Mike and Cody to hire her at their intelligence-gathering firm, where intimate details help their clients.
Never has Mike met a woman as delicious as Shana. Smart as hell, curvy and assured, she’d be a delightful challenge in bed. Cody’s carnal hunger is equally intense. He and Mike want to know everything about her.
She won’t divulge the secrets of her past. All she can offer is unquenchable desire and her heart.
During weeks of shameless lust and pleasure, Mike and Cody peel away the layers of Shana’s life. The stunning truth changes everything. They’ll do all that they can to keep her safe…and in their arms.
