Review: No One to Trust by Julie Moffett (@NetGalley)(Rating 4 Wine Glasses) #toberemo

Posted June 17, 2011 by Felicia S in Uncategorized / 7 Comments


From Goodreads: SWFG: Single, White, Female, Geek.

That’s me, Lexi Carmichael, a reformed hacker who was gainfully employed by the National Security Agency. But a series of extraordinary events led me to leave government life behind for a fresh start with a brand-new company and an incredibly sexy boss, Finn Shaughnessy. It may not be kosher to have the hots for your boss, but he seems to have the hots for me, too. If only things didn’t get so complicated…

Darren Greening, a genius researcher from Flow Technologies (our first client!) is missing, and his bosses think I’m involved. And they aren’t the only ones—the man who nearly snapped my neck in the parking garage thinks so, too.

Now I’m caught in the middle of a complex and dangerous case. I’ll have to use all my geek skills and a little help from my friends to solve the mystery of Darren’s disappearance before Neck-Snapping-Man makes a return visit…

Note: Why I wanted to read this book: SWFG: Single, White, Female, Geek. Hello? They marketed right at me and boy am I glad they did!

What I Loved: Sometimes when you read a book, you get really lucky enough to see yourself in a character. That was how I felt while reading Lexi! She was right at home with a keyboard/research but when you put her in a dress and heels she felt awkward. Granted, I hope to never find myself in the high risk situations she happens to stumble upon but it was fun reading her figure everything out. Lexi is a full-blown hacker/gamer/computer geek and she also has some very geeky friends. She happens to use these talents in this book to help find a fellow missing geek that deals with nanobots. The case was really fun and interesting. I thought the twists/turns were fantastic.

What I Liked: For a geek, Lexi is attracting the really hot men! Finn, the Irish accent lawyer who is also her boss. Slash, the mysterious but seems to be there when she needs him, government agent who has a to die for leather coat. Also Elvis, one part of the geek twins that I think just might have a thing for her. Lexi, of course, has no idea what to do with any of them. This is not a romance, but it was fun to watch her deal with these 3 guys in a very bumbling way. The limo scene with Finn was hilarious!

Complaints: None other than I didn’t realize this was a 2nd in series book. I will be going back for the other one.

Why I gave it a 4: This was a really good Computer Mystery story. The pacing, plot, and characters all delivered and I had a great time reading it!

“The STRUT chat room. I met two guys there. RawMode and Grok.” “Grok as in Heinlein’s Martian?”

    Thanks to all for your comments!! And a special thanks Geeky Blogger (Felicia!) for your kind and thoughtful review. For those of you who are interested, I'm working on the third book tentatively titled, "No Place Like Rome." It's primarily a character exploration of Lexi and Slash. Hope you'll look for it! 🙂 Julie

    Love it! Love the aspect of hot men. Okay, looks like I need to read this one. Sounds perfect for the summer! Loved your review! There needs to be more geeky heroines! 🙂

    Isn't Julie great? I LOVE her Lexi series. I actually got the opportunity to interview Julie for the No One to Trust release. Check it out, she's a hoot!

    Yay Felicia, I'm so glad you found a fellow geeky character to bond with:) Though I'm sure you're not really geeky in any way, it's always nice to find a character that seems to be a reflection of you in some ways. And who wouldn't want 3 hot men trying to get their attention? Especially when one of them is Irish:) *swoon*

    Ha! I went to read the description for book one and Lexi says, "I spend my nights eating cereal for dinner."Now I can identify myself in her, too! LOLWow. Sounds like a super fun series, though I wish it was more of a romance, especially with all those sexy men running around. Glad you found a series that fix you perfectly!
