Maya Jain is a forensic accountant who works for the government. And her once good friend Zack Strong is one of the most wanted men in the country. But what is she suppose to do when he sends her an iPhone as a way to get her to meet him. Well obviously she turns him in. Not! She goes to him. She goes to him and helps him in his quest to clear his name and put the real culprits behind bars. Especially when she finds out exactly how much damage was done to not just companies but to human lives. And the fact that her attraction to Zack is still burning strong after being in college with him is just a added bonus. Zack has been trying to clear his name ever since the government named his a cyber terrorist and put him on the wanted list. But now that he knows that he needs help from the one women he has ever truly wanted will bring her to him after 5 years of seperation. But going to her puts her at risk. And as a result he will do anything in order to protect her including spying on her through her computer cam *wink*. Zack may be really great with computers, but he is not a criminal. At least not until they named him one. If he's going to be named a criminal he might as well earn the title. This was a great read, approximately 100 pages long. The suspense, action, romance, and sexual tension all worked extremely well in order to make a great read. Another success by Miss Quan.

Treasury Department financial analyst Maya Jain finds herself face to face with a could-have-been-love from her college years. Zack Strong, a hired contractor for the NSA, has been on the run after finding unwanted Intel on a malicious hidden backdoor to the central database headquarters, otherwise known as The Barn. Pleading to Maya for her skills in analysis, Zack puts them both into the cross-hairs as the mystery of who's abusing power within the U.S. Government unravels. Overall, it's a great read. At just about 100 pages, I was a little disappointed that it went so quickly. The use of modern context and pop culture references was well metered, and the inclusion of Maya's cultural terminology was a delightful addition, bringing just a little "spice" to the story that wasn't overbearing. I appreciated that the Heroine was POC, though I'm not well enough versed with (East) Indian living to infer what tropes were involved among her origins and family. The overall flow of the story was well constructed. As I've found in many other romance tales, the love interests here felt natural, that the draw between them was not pushed or coerced. Once the story got into more intimate parts, there was an appreciable realism to Maya's first time. There also felt to be an investment in understanding the 9-to-5 jobs that these characters hold and a base understanding of how those jobs needed to interact to bring the challenge around to a sensible close. The characters felt alive and didn't seem limited to only one or two dimension. I only have two negative issues to this story, which seem to appear as the same trouble spots I find in most short story writing. There's only so many ways to talk about gendered anatomy without coming off as repetitive or like an Anatomy and Physiology book. Unfortunately, that seems to be a battle that will never be won by any Author, regardless of the audience. So no points lost there. I was a little disappointed with the last chapter, where all the strings are being brought together. I gave a little here as well since I'm not sure if this piece was penned with a word or page count limit. It wasn't that the paths to conclusion were Magical Solutions, but it seemed that the explanation for the eventual resolution was thrown in as a guarantee to a happier ending. There was a given logic, but it just felt clunky. I would look forward to reading more from this Author if this piece is a demonstration for their average work. I'm not sure if I would read a continuation of this story line, as I don't think there would be much more to add into that isn't already tidied up in the epilogue. Definitely recommending!
