You’ve met the men of BAM. Now get to know the rebel.
Who is Reid Matthews?
A child, abandoned and unloved.
A teen, adrift and disregarded, using his superior tech skills for the wrong intentions.
A young adult, his future overshadowed by his prison record, his life an endless loop of loneliness.
Until he is given a second chance and a new life emerges.
A career he once thought he could only dream of, surrounded by people who show him that family and home aren’t simply words.
And a girl who shows him the greatest, most complex code he could ever write. 

My Review:

Oh my heart, this is the sweetest, most loveable, most yummalicious beta hero I’ve ever read!  Reid is so adorably awkward and endearingly klutzy, and a big part of him is still that baby who was abandoned at the train station and grew up in foster care with nowhere to belong and no family to show him love. He’s a refreshing and unexpected hero, with the most precious, tender, beautiful heart of any hero I’ve ever read, and he captured mine immediately, then proceeded to make me fall head over heels for him.

The advance copy I read of this book is my first by this author, and my already full TBR list just grew because now I absolutely have to go back and read the stories of the other guys of BAM, the company Reid works for. Theirs is a family of choosing rather than DNA, and they’ve welcomed Reid into that family, although Reid hasn’t managed to figure that out yet. He’s plenty confident in his computer skills – so confident that it landed him in prison for four years – but when it comes to friends, family and interpersonal relationships, Reid is clueless. It’s something he’s never had, so he doesn’t quite know what to do with the guys treating him like a younger brother or the office manager, Sandy, mothering him.  And when it comes to his coworker Becca and the feelings she stirs in him, he’s about as comfortable as a stripper at the Vatican and turns into a bumbling, stammering mess. See? How do I not love this delightful, adorable guy?

But even better than his endearing awkwardness is watching Reid grow, change and gain confidence in himself. And then, the icing on the cake is seeing him finally fully embrace the love and friendships around him because he realizes that he actually IS worthy of it. With a brilliant group of unrelated, self-described misfits, this book world is overflowing in poignant emotion and sweet tenderness with carefully placed humor and all around feel-good, full-heart, happy-sigh satisfaction. This is not your typical billionaire or office romance, but much, much more! I predict that Reid will steal your heart within the first few pages and own your heart by the last, so don’t miss the chance to read this fresh, phenomenal heartfelt read!

Much love between the covers,


*See my other reviews here.

We spent the entire day together. I worked on the system, with Becca acting as my assistant. More than once, she rose up on her toes for a kiss. More than once, I had her pressed to the wall, devouring her mouth. It was the best install I had ever done.
“You are such a good kisser,” she murmured against my mouth. “How can a virgin be so good at kissing?”
Pleased she was enjoying my caresses, I grinned. “I have kissed girls and women, but, as I said, I haven’t gone beyond that.” I cupped her face, dragging my lips across her cheek to her sensitive earlobe. “I was waiting for the right person.”
“And I’m that person?”
“Yes,” I stated with conviction, dropping another kiss to her mouth. “You are.” I ran my fingers over my lips, then grabbed my drill.
“Why do you do that?”
“Do what?”
“You press your fingers on your mouth every time we kiss.”
“Oh, ah…” I stalled, looking over her shoulder. I felt heat prickle my neck.
“Tell me,” she insisted. “I want to know.”
“I like how it feels when you kiss me. I guess I’m sort of sealing you into me. Keeping your taste locked into my mouth.”
She stared at me, blinking and silent.
“Is that weird? It’s weird. I’m sorry.”
I wasn’t prepared when she launched herself at me. The drill flew one way; we hit the wall behind me, a mass of entangled arms and legs, her mouth on mine, hard and passionate. I slid down the wall to the floor, taking her with me. She was ferocious in her intensity, her kisses deep and possessive.
“You say the most erotic words,” she groaned. “Sealing my taste into you?”
“So, not weird?” I moaned as she kissed her way down my neck.
“No, not weird.” She hovered over me, her dark hair falling like a waterfall around us. “You turn me on like no man has ever done, Reid. Ever.” She kissed me again.
I was good with that.
