Right from the description, I was hooked on Love, Technically! I thought that it sounded like a sweet romance, and that's exactly what it was. The characters were wonderful, and while the book wasn't all that long, Lynne Silver made me fall completely in love with them and kept me totally wrapped up in their story! :D Both Sark (er...Noah...I feel like we're at least friends now, so I'm totally going to call him Sark :P haha) and Michelle were characters that I just absolutely loved! I genuinely cared for them and desperately wanted everything to work out in their favour. I loved their budding relationship, their easy banter, their steamy chemistry, and above all else, I just loved the two of them to bits! I just had an absolute blast reading Love, Technically, and I didn't want to put it I didn't unless I absolutely had to. :P I loved the whole technological aspect of the story, too, and I felt that both Michelle's and Sark's dreams for their futures were realistic and that their dreams actually contributed to a lot of their appeal. They felt like real people. They were both awkward at times and were figuring their lives out, and that aspect really appealed to me and made the characters even more genuine. Overall, I absolutely loved Love, Technically! I loved the characters, the story, and the fabulous nerd appeal. ;) I definitely plan to read more of Lynne Silver's work in the future because Love, Technically made me laugh, cry, and above all else, it left me with a ginormous grin on my face when I'd finished...and that grin and feeling is exactly how I know that I loved a book as much as I possibly can love one...*dreamy sigh* I'll definitely be rereading this one in the future, too. I'd recommend this one to fans of romance....especially if you love the contemporary kind, and I think if you have a soft spot for hottie nerds, you'll enjoy this one even might even make you like them if you hadn't considered them before. ;) * I received an ebook of Love, Technically from the publisher to give an honest review. All opinions are my own. * This review also appears on my blog and on my other social media accounts.

This novel was a sweet and cute romance that had me floating above the clouds. The story is about two really nice people and a whole lot of miscommunication. Oh...and Geek romance. Gotta love that geek romance. Noah aka “Sark” is a generally nice guy that kind of lucked out in the tech savy world and has no clue what to do with it. He still hangs out with the I.T peeps and still lives in the office space over his friend’s garage (where his company really started). He runs into Michelle who is a generally innocent and nice person and sparks fly. But, he wants her to love him for him. Pretty understandable. I, like Michelle, fell in love with Sark. I am always a big fan of the cute romances, but I felt there could have been more depth in this book. They were unrealistically nice and perfect and sometimes I just didn’t buy it. It was a great read though to escape the usual and if Noah/Sark ever came my way I would be sure to try and snatch him and all. Good: Noak/Sark--Sexy. Cute. Billionaire, yet down to earth. Perfection. Bad: A little too perfect sometimes. Overall (Writing style, story line, and general): Overall the novel was still an enjoyable read. It wasn’t hard to follow and there wasn’t anything that made me stop and say “what?”. I smiled more often then not and I admit that I liked how innocent and down to earth Noah was. It curled by toes many a times and I found myself wanting to hug the digital pages. This book was provided courtesy of the author/publisher for review; however, this is no way affected my review.

This was a very quick and refreshing read for me.  I actually enjoyed the story despite thinking the female protagonist to be a bit dense but I guess, the author had to use someone who wasn’t as tech savvy as the male protagonist.  Despite that issue, I enjoyed it and read it in just one sitting. Noah Frellish, Billionaire CEO, helps Michelle Kolson one night while she was working late.  He introduces himself as “Sark” (his gaming handle), when he sees that the new employee doesn’t recognize him.  Michelle, on the other hand, finds herself attracted to this geek and assumes that he is from tech support since he new how to help her with her problem.  They start going out with Noah, still not revealing who he really is.  The company was downsizing and Michelle also had a risk for not staying in the company so she was looking to getting hired at another department. She had her eyes set on being in the marketing department as an assistant but sadly, she had no experience with Photoshop.  ”Sark” volunteers to teach her the basics and also asks one of his friends (a girl that I can’t remember the name) to teach her.  Michelle gets hired temporarily with another girl (who is one the Board of Director’s of the company) and a mild competition ensues. One of the problems that I found while reading this book was about Michelle not asking what Noah’s real name was.  To be honest, Sark is not a common name and it doesn’t sound like a name at all so I cannot fathom why she would not ask or even make a comment about the uniqueness of the name.  Second problem was why Michelle did not ask his last name.  Okay, sure, this is the 21st century and last names are so last season but if you want to date someone, let alone sleep with someone, at least ask for his/her last  name, right?  The last problem was the mild competition that happened.  I thought there wasn’t a real competition there and that Michelle was so forgiving to her when in reality, that should not have been the case. Other than that, I enjoyed reading the book.  It was well written and the pace was perfect.  I actually like Noah and I must admit, geeky guys are just adorable.  Well, second to bad boy heroes, right?

Love technically is your basic modern day fairy tale story, with all the elements that make it one. The super rich hero, the "struggling" heroine, and a misunderstanding. Its the same old story, told in a slightly different way. But I liked it anyway. Our heroine is a small town girl from Iowa. Michelle Kolson is your basic girl next door kinda girl. She's 25 and has just moved to the windy city of Chicago,after realizing that she hasn't seen anything except her hometown Des Moines. With that depressing realization in her mind she packs up and moves. She quickly realizes that moving is easy... but getting settled and picking up her life well that's the hardest part. Michelle's a fighter though, she doesn't take crap from anyone and she doesn't need anyone saving her, because she can take care of herself. Noah Frellish, aka Sark, is your above average geek, and he isn't afraid to let you know he is 100% geeked out. The CEO of a big company and since he has just took his company public he is knee deep in business meetings and phone calls, but when he spots our heroine its interest at first sight, especially since she has no idea who he is. He knows its going to end bad if he doesn't tell her, but he just wants to be a normal person for a little while. Inventing new technologies and dealing directly with his people, but being public doesn't give him that option anymore. These two have an instant connection and after finding out that she might be heading right back out the door Sark gives Michelle a heads up about an open position within the company. The romance in this book was easy and I would have liked to see some real big romantic gestures but that's just me. The twist came with the fact that Michelle had competition not for Sark but for the job she wanted and that was a welcomed change in pace. The ending was cookie cutter at best, since you know it has to be a happy ending boy goes to get girl, girl sworns and comes back. I'll admit it made me tear up a little, but hello I kinda expected nothing less. If this book hadn't pulled out any emotions then it wouldn't have been a good book. This book wasn't perfect by a long shot, but I enjoyed it and would gladly recommend it to everyone I know and don't know. So with that I give this a 4 out of 5 black roses.

Although I enjoyed the story captured in these pages, I feel as though there was some lost potential in this story, Geeky love seems to be all the rage right now, and when done well, I find it phenomenal. Sark is a nerd, but I don't feel his nerdiness is very well developed. There's only one or two nerdy references in the story, which I found disappointing since I'm a pretty big nerd myself. The story is solid and other than the nerdy aspects, the characters are well developed, but if you're looking for a hardcore nerd romance, this isn't really for you. I would more recommend this to readers who love a billionaire hero. Note: I received a free copy of this book for honest review.

As posted on The Smutty Kitty reviewed by KittyKelly 3 out of 5 Licks It's not often that a total nerd is also described as a super sexy hunk, but this romance folks so we shouldn't be too surprised. lol Michelle is a little more naïve than I care for in my heroines but she grows a backbone in the end. Michelle spent a lot of time whining about her position for someone who was handed another job almost immediately after starting. She worked hard to get the position but be a little appreciative. I liked Noah's style. He was honest and humble. Not surprisingly enough a lot of the talk in this book was over my head. I understand a little about corporations and how a publically traded account works but some of it didn't make a lot of sense to me most of the time. It didn't distract from the story too much though. Overall it was an interesting read but there wasn't enough conflict for me to keep up late reading until the end. I was happy with the ending and I enjoyed the epilogue. I'm always a fan of wrapping up my story in a nice neat little package.

5 GB Stars!!! I cannot even imagine how to properly put into words how much I loved Lynne Silver's Love, Technically. It was refreshing, heartfelt, and full of all the good qualities of a love story. But not just any love story. The love story of a geeky computer guy, well, an extremely wealthy CEO geeky computer guy, and a small town Iowan girl who just wants to make it in the Big City. After landing a job at LiteWave technologies, Michelle has a run in with the extremely handsome Noah Frellish, CEO of LiteWave. However, she has no idea who he is and sees him in a way no one else does; a man instead of a bank account. Noah doesn’t want to lose that connection and makes the decision not to tell her who he is. As they continue to spend more and more time together, they realize how easy, fun, and wonderful it is to be with each other and neither of them have felt this way about anyone else before. However, due to miscommunication, their perfect relationship soon turns to a pile of rubble at their feet along with their hearts. Will they be able to get things back together? Do they even want to? You don’t usually read books in which the handsome leading man is classified as a “nerd”, but I’m glad Noah is because he has become one of my favorite characters. Not caring about how much money he has or being the famous CEO, he cares about people and doing what he loves. His desire and admiration for Michelle makes me jealous while seeing Michelle’s natural reaction to Noah, wanting to take care of him, being strong and honest, I adore Michelle. This was another book I couldn’t put down, but more importantly, it was a book I read again as soon as I finished it. Absolutely Amazing! (I received an ARC for my review, and this is my honest-to-goodness, straight from the heart review!)

Wonderful reading! I loved Michelle and Sark love! It was classic, romantic, but a little unreal and cheesy. All the book was incredible, awesome, and I was waiting for the climax in any page. When it arrived, I said "OMG, that &%$@#!!" No words to describe it! Sometimes I wished that the story goes more fast, but it doesn't matter, just in my opinion. At the rest, HOLY *HIT, I LOVED IT SO MUCH! ¡Una lectura maravillosa! ¡Amé el amor de Michelle y Sark! Fue clásico, romántico, pero un poco irreal y cursi. Todo el libro es increíble, impresionante, y estuve esperando por el clímax en cualquier página.Cuando llegó, dije "OMG, esa &%$@#!!" Sin palaabras para dscribirlo! Algunas veces deseé que la historia fuera más deprisa, pero no importa mucho, es solamente una opinión. Por lo demás, M****A, LA AMÉ!

This was a romance story about Michelle and Sark. Michelle just recently moved to Chicago and started a new job at LiteWave. She was working late one night and was having trouble with her printer and Sark came to her rescue. She thought he was from the IT Department but unbeknownst to her, he was actually Noah, the CEO of the company. He knew he should tell her the truth but he was tired of people liking him because of his money instead of just for himself. Their attraction was mutual and a romance started. I really did not like how Michelle was portrayed as a country hick. She saw the billboard of Noah and still didn’t put it together that Sark was the CEO. Then Sark sent her a note explaining who he really was and she misunderstands the note. I was mad at Sark that he thought he could explain his deception in a note and then never talk about it with her in person. Once she found out who he really was, she felt betrayed and left her job, running home to Iowa. Sark followed her and they get their happily ever after. Cute story but not enough substance for me.

Love, Technically is a contemporary romance that is quick read with geeky and sexy hero, and a beautiful heroine. I really liked Noah. He is smart, compassionate, generous, and romantic. He wants a women to love him for him, not his money, just him. I find that I fill bad for him never knowing if his date was actually interested in him. When he meets Michelle and does not correct her mistake with his identity, I know this is going to come back and bite him, but I can understand why he does it. The ease that these two have in their relationship, their chemistry, and their friendship is stuff that dreams are made of. When things backfire and Michelle finds out who Noah really is, well it does not go well for him. He has to win her back so she knows that he is still the man she feel in love with. This is a quick read that has beautiful romance, wrenching emotion, and great characters that really make you care about them. I was given a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have a soft spot for tech geeks. Mainly because I married one. He isn't a billionaire CEO, but I am pretty sweet on him. When I saw Love, Technically by Lynne Silver come up for review and read the blurb I knew I had to read it. It was such a fun story. For those that work in the corporate world, you will really be able to identify with this story. Even if you don't, it will still be just as entertaining for you. I don't usually like it when people lie about their identity in stories, but can understand why they choose to do so. In this case Sark lies about being the CEO because he really likes Michelle and is afraid she will treat him differently if she knows who he really is. The CEO title either freaks people out or draws people in because of his money. He is afraid of being hurt again, so he keeps it a secret for a bit. We all know that when Michelle eventually finds out things are going to change. How is this story different? Because we have a hero who isn't ultra-smooth with the ladies and we watch him navigate the uncomfortable area of love and romance. It is entertaining to watch him figure out how to get the girl. Lynne is a new-to-me author and Love, Technically is a book that will have me checking out her other stories. The story moved along at a good pace and the characters are well developed and engaging. If you are looking for a quick read that is hard to put down and will leave you smiling at the end of the story I recommend Love, Technically! It will cause you to look differently at tech geeks.

This was my first book by author Lynne Silver, and I’ll definitely be adding more. I found her writing to be enjoyable with an easy flow and entertaining storyline. I’ve read a couple of “geek romances” and I have to say, this is a sub-genre that is quickly rising to the top of my favorites. Love, Technically was engaging from beginning to end. In Love, Technically we have Michelle who is a transplant to Chicago from Iowa. She’s a small town girl who just needed more than what working at the local supercenter could offer her. So she struck out on her own in one of the biggest cities in the country. Right away I like her. Not only is she very kind and tenderhearted, the bravery is takes to make a move like this endears her to me. I feel slightly protective of Michelle, but at the same time, I am sure she can handle her own. Small town doesn’t translate to dumb.  Right away at work she runs into after hours computer issues. Luckily a computer geek happens out of no where. Ladies, meet Sark. Sark is sexy and in shape. He’s the type of hottie geek that a girl like me dreams of. Sark realizes something right away – Michelle doesn’t realize who he is. He sees an opportunity to get to know her as himself, not as the CEO of the company she just hired into. I found him to be a sincere character, and I loved him all the way through.  This is the type of book I could see made into one of those movies on TV with young up and coming actors. It had a fun and flirty feel to it. There did come a point where things were a little heartbreaking. I mean, nothing good can come from hiding your identity. Miscommunication at this point is an ugly monster. Near the end, there were a few scenes that kind of unraveled for me. I was expecting a big overture, and I got something more of a stumble with good luck. It worked for the pair, but I would have really loved something a bit more intense and dramatic. The drink in his hand was messing with his need to touch her and cup her bottom as they swayed to the music. His hands couldn't go where they wanted, but his mouth could. He leaned down to kiss her, and she met his mouth halfway. She tasted like beer and warm, sexy woman. The kiss grew deeper, stronger. Around them other couples clung to each other and used the slow dance as an excuses to get close to their partner. He stopped pretending and gave in to what he really wanted. Keeping his mouth on hers, he back them off the dance floor to a quieter corner of the club. Somewhere along the way, they lost their drinks on a table, on the floor. He didn't know, didn't care. What mattered was keeping his connection with Michelle. After finishing this book, I think I would recommend this to people who are fans of YA or NA romance, or geek romance. It isn’t really huge on the hot and heavy scenes (save for maybe one?  I didn't keep count - so I could be wrong), although there are some terrific spur of the moment kisses which just made me melt into a big puddle. It was a fun and easy romance with fun characters.

Best beach read so far! This does not mean that it is the best book I’ve read this year, but it is the best short story you could take with you on the beach. This book is funny, cute and interesting, but also easy to read. The story is really cute, well developed for its size, so why not give it a try? I do not have much to criticize other than the fact that I did not like Michelle that much. I know that she is the main character and all that, but she seemed a bit stupid at times, in my opinion. I hate that! Thankfully it that fact did not ruin the book for me as I knew from the beginning not to expect a masterpiece with a strong, smart woman as a heroine, I knew before reading it that is was going to be a light, cute book. I really liked Sark. I really admire him for the way he runs his company because that proves once again just how smart he is. He knows that people work better in a friendly environment. Sadly, the model in the cover is not really how I imagined Noah, oh well… Overall, I really loved this short story despite its minor faults, but I would have liked to read more, a lot more! I recommend reading this one because it is worth it!!! Reading time: 1 h 30 min

I am usually pretty skeptical of novellas - they tend to lack character development & feel rushed. It sounded adorable & the hero of the story is a cute tech nerd, so I just had to give it a read! I love the big, tough bad boys just as much as the next girl but I have a sweet spot for nerds. Love, Technically is about Michelle, a girl from a small city in Iowa, who moves to Chicago to create a new life. First week at her new job she meets Noah aka Sark. He helps her with her printer & she assumes that he is an IT guy, when in actuality he is the owner & CEO of the company. He wants to tell her the truth but he loves being treated like a regular guy. Even though the book was only a little over a hundred pages, the story never felt rushed to me. It constantly held my attention. Michelle & Sark's chemistry was adorable and completely natural. Overall, Love, Technically was a cute, feel-good romance novel. My only minor complaint was that I didn't feel I really connected with Michelle. I loved the epilogue, I was definitely smiling when I finished the book!
Kristas_Dust_Jacket More than 1 year ago
Love, Technically was a nice premise. Michelle is having some computer problems late at night when Sark, the help desk technician, shows up to help her. An instant attraction is discovered and a romance ensues. The big snafu is that the help desk technician is actually the rich CEO of the company Michelle works for. Now he's in a pickle. Either tell her the truth and risk her being angry and never wanting to see him again or keep up the farce for as long as possible and hope for the best. The premise was good, however, the execution was off. I had a real problem with Michelle. She was from a small town in Iowa and decided to remove herself to the big city of Chicago for a worldly education in life. Michelle was a complete caricature of the "aw-shucks" country girl. I almost expected her to be described as showing up to work in denim bibs chewing a piece of grass between her teeth. Not only is she not familiar with business terms like ROI, which I could honestly forgive, but apparently the Internet doesn't exist in Hicksville, Iowa, because she also had never heard of RPGs and IP addresses and doesn't have a Facebook page. She is completely shy and inhibited in every single situation. Except when Noah finally gets her naked. Then, it's like she's a completely different person. I didn't buy any of it for one second. And, really, her computer "problem" in the beginning? Who wouldn't think about that solution themselves? I couldn't connect with Sark/Noah very well either. When he attempts to tell Michelle the truth, he writes her a totally lame note, doesn't really sign it and then assumes everything is okay. Really, dude? Sometimes he seems to like to spend money (like when he bought Michelle a $2,000 mountain bike for a date) and other times he doesn't (like the fact that he rents a studio above a garage). It's a little weird. Love, Technically is a very short book. It verges on novella territory. I finished it in only three hours. I think if it were another 100 pages long, it would help a lot. Michelle and Noah both need to be developed more, given many more facets. Because it's hard for me to be endeared to this story if I don't care much for the two main characters. And, as I said, the premise was good. It just needed a bit more work.
ToryMichaels More than 1 year ago
Overall, this was a cute book. I actually didn't have a problem in believing the initial mistake Michelle makes in not figuring out who Noah is. After all, he looked different in the pictures and he introduced himself by his nickname, which in his experience, everyone knew was his nickname. I even don't necessarily have a problem with him not fixing hte mistake as soon as he realized it was made. After all, he's a billionaire and it must have been refreshing to have a woman liking him for who he is, rather than his bank account. Noah made his money in the tech industry and is growing restless because he has bigger and better ideas, but he's blocked in by a board of directors since his company is a public one and they don't want to take a chance and risk their profits on a new invention. Michelle is a relatively innocent, somewhat naive woman who's just moved to Chicago from her little town in the boonies. She's excited to have a chance to work for a company like Noah's, but then finds out her job's about to be outsourced. Then, thanks to a tip from the cute IT tech she met (Sark aka Noah), she gets a lead on another job within the company. Unfortunately, going after the job, which she's actually not very qualified for despite some work history in the advertising business (for her parents' store back home), comes with its own set of complications (including a potential rival for Noah/Sark, who she still hasn't figured out is the boss). Of course the truth comes out, as it always does. She's hurt and runs home to think. Noah's confused, not having realized (some how) that she still had no clue until someone points it out to her (in a suitably melodramatic moment which involves the HR department and her potential new boss in the advertising department). Ultimately, of course, they work the issues out and have their happily ever after. I liked Michelle. She knew how to go after what she wanted, even though she was shy about it. Noah was really good to her, giving her some help in learning what she'd need to know to qualify for the job. Unfortunately, as the mistaken identity thing continued for sooooo much of the book, it ended up straining my ability to believe in the possibility. She worked closely with him and never had a clue. It's just not possible (in my opinion) to not figure something out was up. I don't think Noah was too smart. He started to 'fess up, but then somehow his note in which he confesses just happens to not get signed properly, thus not finishing his confession and he never realizees it. Very shaky plasaubility for me. That didn't ruin the book, as is clear since I still give this book 4 stars, but it's why I couldn't conceive of giving it five. Definitely got some great company between the two leads, and I like the secondary cast as well. Hopefully we'll get more books in this bent as time goes on.

Reviewed by Kim for Read Your Writes Book Reviews I loved the premise of this book. There’s just something really great about truly falling in love with someone for them as a person and not for the size of their bank account. Michelle Kolson is working late one night during her first week at LiteWave Tech. She thinks she’s alone on the floor and is having printer problems. In fact, she even kicks the printer and is surprised to hear the voice of a tall, handsome, geeky looking guy approaching her. Since he helps her and reminds her that the help desk is always on call, Michelle thinks Sark works for the help desk. Sark, known to his friends, is really Noah Frellish, the billionaire CEO who actually founded and created LiteWave Tech. Noah realizes that Michelle doesn’t know who he really is and decides he will tell her the truth the next day. Well....He kind of sort of does, but she doesn’t realize it. Love, Technically is a romance for starry eyed romance lovers everywhere. You get to watch two people fall in love with each other and come to terms with who they are and what they really want out of life. Noah is just an average guy who even though he has tons of money, doesn’t show it. Michelle is a small town girl who wants to live in the big city. She doesn’t have a college degree but she’s a fast learner and a hard worker. What these two can accomplish together is what friendship and love is all about. I was hooked from the beginning and I enjoyed the book to the very end. Noah and Michelle are two characters you will fall in love with. Source: Publisher

Star Rating:  4 out of 5 Heat Rating:  Mild/Simmers Love, Technically is a book that will leave you smiling, especially on those days when you want to read a book that is simple, yet sweet and easy to fall into.  I picked up this novella, sat down and before I knew it I was done!   I fell in love with Sark (Noah) and Michelle, together they were adorable, believable and so much fun to read.  Noah is a CEO of a major technology company on the outside, but on the inside (his true self) he is still just that geeky code monkey that goes by his gamer name Sark.  I loved that he was socially a bit awkward and wasn't a player or a ladies man.  He was adorable, a bit geeky and good looking, but written like a real, average male in his twenties might act.   Michelle was a hard-working, naive girl from a small town, coming to Chicago to change her life for the better.  I really liked that her character had drive and passion (along with a bit of a backbone to stand up for herself), she is a woman who knows what she wants in life and is willing to work for it. Love, Technically was a fun, cute story about two people falling in love.  It is a novella so there is some jumping ahead to move the story along and there were times I wanted the story to slow down so we could dig deeper into things, but sometimes it is good to be left wanting more, right?  I always enjoy an epilogue and Lynne Silver does a great job of using it to wrap up some loose ends and questions the readers might have.  (I still would like to have another novella with Noah/Sark and Michelle, I am not done with these two just yet). This was my first book by Lynne Silver and it definitely won't be my last.  I enjoyed her writing style and her characters so much that I will be looking into her backlist and anxiously awaiting any new releases she has in the future.  If you enjoy reading light, sweet stories with quirky characters, Love, Technically is the perfect fit!

Noah Frellish (aka Sark to his friends) is a computer genius billionaire. One evening at work he runs into Michelle Kolson who was having trouble with a printer. She's new to the company and was afraid of not pleasing her supervisor. Sark finds out the problem and is pleasantly surprised that she doesn't know who he is. He invites her out for coffee and sandwiches and enjoys being able to really be himself. He's finally able to relax his guard and just be his geeky self. Michelle insists on picking up the tab since he helped her out of a tight spot. Sark can't believe his good luck, lately the only thing women are interested in him was for his money and here was Michelle offtering to pay. She thought he was just one of the IT help desk guys and he wasn't ready to tell her different. For Sark just to be normal is exactly what he's been wanting in his life. For Michelle, meeting someone in the big city of Chicago is a step in the right direction to a new life. If you are looking for a nice, easy, fast read you will like Love, Technically. I read it in one evening. Even though, it's a simple storyline, it's so well written that you find yourself just sitting back, relaxing and enjoying the book. a great summer read you want to add to your reading list. Received an ARC for an honest reviw.

Yummy Geeky Fun!  3.5  This was a charming fun category length romance between a country girl and a city nerd.  It was sweet and frothy with a little bit of steam. The hero is endearing and sexy. The heroine is charming and we can live through her nicely as she does things at work to awful coworkers we all would like to do. The writing is crisp and engaging. The book is held back from being great by its category length and its inability there fore to develop some aspects of the character and the romance but overall it is a satisfying and good read I recommend to those of you who  love your heroes a little be geeky like I do!

Love, Technically is a quick read—just over 125 pages—and cute, providing the reader is okay with some major suspension of belief. At first Michelle's mistake makes sense—Noah gives her his gamer nickname, because he thought she was cute and wanted her "to be in the small circle of people to call him Sark." He's wearing casual clothes and a baseball cap, and his older "geeky" glasses since he broke his more stylish ones on a recent bike ride. He looks nothing like the polished publicity photos she'd seen around the building. It's late, there's no one else still working on her floor, he's wearing a seriously nerdy (but amusing) t-shirt, and he does "fix" the problem she's having with her printer. Soon, though, it gets a little silly. She sees him many times in a more normal work environment, but never makes the connection. Then Noah decides he has to tell her the truth, but does so in pretty much the most bizarre and obscure way possible—and she totally doesn't get it. Then for a big chunk of the novella he thinks she knows who he is but she totally doesn't. They spend a lot of time together—how does she not make the connection a single time? He does talk about work and is even often driven around in a company car. Every single other employee knows him. Just not the new girl, apparently. Still, there were a lot of cute moments in the story...along with M&Ms and a Mork & Mindy reference. Both Michelle and Noah find solutions for their work woes (going public and having to answer to a board of directors has taken his company in directions he's not comfortable with), and she does make him grovel just a little to get her back in the end. In a nutshell: Short and sweet; though not entirely believable, it does have its moments. 3 stars. I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

Love Technically by Lynne Silver is a sweet and well written novella. I was able to connect with all the characters because they have depth, personality and realism. This is a fast-paced short story that can be read in one afternoon while sipping a refreshing drink. Sexy Iowa native Michelle Kolson wants a new life in the big city. Much to her mother's dismay, she relocates to Chicago and lands a job in the call center of LiteWave Tech. During her first week with the company, she runs into slightly nerdy Noah Frellish, or Sark to his close friends, the company's billionaire CEO. Michelle has no idea that Sark is the CEO, even when he inadvertently shares some corporate information with her that concerns her department. Sark recently took his company public and is very unhappy. He is a computer whiz and now has to spend his time making corporate decisions, dealing with the board and saving his job. He misses inventing, discovering new technologies and dealing directly with his employees. Sark and Michelle bond instantly and knowing that the call center is going to be outsourced, Sark gives Michelle some suggestions about open positions within the company. Michelle and Sark spend some time together and begin to fall in love. Michelle likes Sark for himself, not because he is wealthy. However, once she finds out about the real Sark, she decides to rethink her future and priorities. Luckily, the couple is able to overcome some pressing obstacles and have a happily ever after. If you are looking for quick, fun romantic read, add this book to your TBR list. I received this ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.
