I’m Lexi Carmichael, geek extraordinaire. I spend my days stopping computer hackers at the National Security Agency. My nights? Those I spend avoiding my mother and eating cereal for dinner. Even though I work for a top-secret agency, I’ve never been in an exciting car chase, sipped a stirred (not shaken) martini, or shot a poison dart from an umbrella.
Until today, that is, when two gun-toting thugs popped up in my life and my best friend disappeared. So, I’ve enlisted the help of the Zimmerman twins—the reclusive architects of America’s most sensitive electronic networks—to help me navigate a bewildering maze of leads to find her.
Along the way, my path collides with a sexy government agent and a rich, handsome lawyer, both of whom seem to have the hots for me. Hacking, espionage, sexy spy-men—it’s a geek girl’s dream come true. If it weren’t for those gun-toting thugs…
Thoughts on No One Lives Twice
Heh. Geek girl gets thrown in the middle of international craziness and finds her social life taking off when all the men around her are of the hunky variety. I CAN GET BEHIND THIS IDEA!
First off, Lexi goes from having a dating life that’s a social wasteland to drowning in hot, smart, sexy men. Sure, most of them are keeping secrets from her and she’s understandably upset about it when she finds out but the man-candy parade seems well worth it to me. On the other hand, having your life threatened and getting shot at a time or two don’t seem as fun. But Lexi takes it in stride. She has the occasional meltdown (and who wouldn’t!?!) but when she starts to understand what sort of shenanigans her best friend has been unintentionally dragged into, she rallies and starts plotting and planning.
With the sexy hacker guys. *slow thumbs up*
I was in the mood for something fast-paced and fun and this book delivered. Lexi is pretty clueless when it comes to men but that doesn’t stop the hunks from gathering. She’s good with computers, but has no field experience and she’s smart enough to play to her strengths. I like a girl with smarts. I also like a girl who goes out and buys news clothes when she can’t stomach the idea of doing laundry. Oh, Lexi. Don’t ever change.
