Overview

The Wrong Kind of Compatible by Kadie Scott

Data analyst Cassie Howard may be brilliant (and, okay, a little awkward), but she's worked hard to get where she is. She definitely doesn't need some sexy new analyst coming in and taking credit for her work. Or the inappropriate thoughts that keep popping out of her mouth she'd rather he not hear.

For undercover FBI agent Drew Kerrigan, computers have always made more sense than people, but he'd better develop some slick social skills in a hurry if he's going to win over the too-tantalizing-for-his-sanity Cassie. Hacking their systems was easy. Now he's just got to hack the one person in the company most likely to see through his ruse...

Received an ARC for my fair review for netgalley. This was such a cute book, Cassie was funny, and so awkward and quirky that I am happy she found someone like herself. Drew, a nerdy hottie, that no one understood his language except Cassie. Their banter was too adorable. Poor Drew, he wanted to do the right thing, but kept going back and forth, and when he finally gives in, he is heartbroken mistakenly so. Then poor Cassie, she is also confused and understandably frustrated with Drew's back and forth. Then when he attacks her, poor girl, but she is awesome and figured everything out, and they adorkably fixed everything..I hope we get to read about Max.

4.5**** This has to be one of the cutest nerd books I have ever read. Being a nerd myself, I absolutely adored Cassie and Drew's story. I smiled and laughed at their double meaning lines and at her outbursts when she didn't realize she said things out loud. I enjoyed their chemistry and their arguments. And I even got a little sad when everything came to light. This was a charming and delightful read from start to finish. I received this book in exchange for an honest review from the publisher through Netgalley.

the wrong kind of compatible is a charming romantic comedy about two socially awkward, yet brilliant computer data analysts. drew kerrigan is an fbi agent working undercover to discover why data minds has suddenly won a slew of government contracts, and why those proposals contained information that looks like corporate espionage. his main suspect is cassie howard. cassie comes from a family of overachievers, and she is the best at the type of work she does. so when her company hires someone in a similar role, she's immediately suspicious. it's hard to be a woman doing the kind of work she does. the fact that drew is ridiculously attractive makes it even harder. and then he seems to be on her same wavelength when it comes to blurting out slightly inappropriate, slightly suggestive things. drew is torn. he's at data minds on a job. he's supposed to be collecting evidence that damns cassie, but he finds it difficult to believe that she would be behind anything like that. and it's not just his attraction to her that leads him to think that way. but the fbi wants proof, they're not interested in his gut instincts. the closer drew gets to cassie the more worried he is about being able to stay unbiased. when everything comes to light, it seems like drew and cassie will end up on opposite sides. but these two hackers understand each other too well, the chemistry between them is not just apparent as they write and analyze lines of computer code, but also in the banter and sheer sexual tension that thrums between them at all times. **the wrong kind of compatible will publish on june 12, 2017. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/entangled publishing (lovestruck) in exchange for my honest review.

Great story, I loved it! Take one highly intelligent, strong and semi-snarky woman and pair her with a hot undercover FBI agent on his first undercover assignment, who is as brilliant as she is; stir in a little corporate espionage and toss with pressure from his bosses and you get this story. What a great read. Cassie is a coder, working for a company that just landed a huge government contract due to her hard work. Cassie works at her own level and comes from a family of totally over achievers. She's low man on the totem pole in her family. Drew is brought in as a new hire to assist Cassie with her work. Drew is a hacker, ex military and this is his first undercover assignment. The FBI thinks that Cassie is at least involved in stealing corporate secrets if not totally to blame. Drew has a hard time believing this as he gets to know her and works with her. Then they develop a relationship, slow but Drew turns up the heat and it gets steamy. Drew suspects something amiss with the three owners of the business but again no proof and no proof that Cassie has done anything either, until the morning stolen coding ends up on her computer and Drew finds it. At the same time Cassie finds papers on Drew's table about the business and other company things. She's a breath away from being arrested, she flees knowing Drew just used her and is busting her can to save herself from being arrested. Meanwhile Drew talks to Max, his best friend and partner and they pull in some extra help trying to figure out who, what and Drew doesn't want to think she's guilty. But yet he isn't quite convinced. Add to this Drew's superiors are breathing down his neck to tie this up. They seem to think the evidence points to Cassie and Drew doesn't budge on that one. The story gets pretty intense toward the end with several twist and turns and there are a lot of them throughout the book. This is a fast read, yet it will keep you turning those pages as things heat up and the storyline twists. Huge head nod from me!! Nice work Kadie, I loved it. Bring on Max's story! I'm ready! arc from NetGalley and Entangled in exchange for a fair review*** (less)

The Wrong Kind of Compatible by Kadie Scott My rating: 5 of 5 stars 'The Wrong Kind of Compatible' by Kadie Scott is book One in the New series "Love Undercover". This is the story of Drew Kerrigan and Cassie Howard. Cassie is the classic essential nerd who doesn't know if she talking with her inter voice or with her actual voice. So things sometimes just come out of her mouth. But Cassie is a hard worker and once she gets on a project she doesn't want to stop so she has a hard time doing so when the company introduces Drew as a new employee. Cassie is taken back by how handsome he is...and then she finds out he working with her personally. Cassie works as a Government contractor so she takes her work seriously and feels somewhat threaten by Drew who introduces himself at first as if he is taking over her position. Drew is serious non social type guy who is working for the Government, and know is assigned to look into this company and more importantly Cassie. Drew is doing so undercover to see what has been going on with this company so trying to get Cassie to trust him went wrong from the start. I have to say this book hooked me in from the start! I so loved how funny these two were in their 'head voices' much less what they actually did. This was a joy to read and look for more books in this series...and by this author. "My honest review is for a special copy I voluntarily read."

This is such a great read...I adore it! Ms. Scott delivers a laugh-out-loud rom-com that matches up one fiesty and sassy female geek with her equally geeky male counterpart. The sparks fly along with innuendo as these awkward two butt heads during Drew’s undercover FBI sting operation into data analyst, Cassie, and her company. Please note that an ARC was generously provided in exchange for an honest review of which this is both honest and completely voluntary.

I found The Wrong Kind of Compatible to be a very funny read. You could not help but love both of the characters and the quirky personalities. Cassie and Drew's geekiness was adorable. warning: this is not a clean read, there is sexual references throughout, at least one physical scene, and some profanity. if these things do not bother you i think you will find this to be a fun romantic comedy I rate books on content at More Than a Review dot com.

This is the first book by Kadie Scott that I have read. I really enjoyed this book. It was funny smart and sexy. In this book you have Cassie, who is a highly intelligent data analyst. Drew constantly struggles to live up to her mothers high expectations. She is always compared to her brothers who are highly successful, smart doctors. In walks Drew, sexy as hell, highly intelligent FBI man. Drew is there to investigate Cassie on a high profile cyber case. She is his main suspect. But when their eyes meet for the first time, there is no denying that this girl will be trouble with a capital T. She is just as drawn to him as he is her. Will Drew be able to prove that Cassie is not the bad guy? Will Cassie lose her heart to him and then have it broken? This book was such a cute, steamy romantic read. I absolutely loved the plot line. It was a bit different than most of the steamy romance books out there. I loved the characters of this story. They were invested in their roles and have wonderful charisma. I love how Cassie speaks her mind without her knowing it. It is extremely funny. Drew is so cute with his “how to” books for interacting with women. And OMG the sexy nerd jokes. Loved it! If this author is not on your read list, then I highly suggest you check her out. Definitely pick this book up. It is a wonderful read.  I give it 5 stars. I received an ARC in exchange for my honest review.

4.5 stars First let me just say...the cover on this book? HOT! I'm so used to seeing lots of skin on romance covers (not that I'm complaining) but I had forgotten just how freaking sexy a guy in a dress shirt and tie is! Love it. This is the first book I have read by Kadie Scott (It looks like it's the first book she's written unless she has another pen name? It's the only one listed on Goodreads anyway) and I really enjoyed it. It was such a fun, sweet, cute read. I loved that BOTH the MC's were these socially awkward, "geeky" types. It was a fun twist from the usual "one nerdy, one not" books I've read in the past. I loved not just the banter between the two, but also the internal dialog, as their thoughts had me cracking up. The things that slipped out of their mouths, and their attempts at flirtation, were hilarious. I loved that Drew actually went to the book store and bought a book on how to talk to women. And that Cassie later found it. I loved that Drew wouldn't wear his glasses with a camera after the first day as his team totally made fun of his horrible attempts at conversation. Drew and Cassie were just too cute. I enjoyed the two of them so much and the attraction and chemistry felt real to me. This is the first in a series and I can't wait for the next one. It says it will be Max's story. He is Drew's friend and I can't wait to learn more about him as he definitely snagged my interest.

Cute, sexy, and funny in a totally geeky kind of way! I loved these characters. Cassie and the way she says whatever pops into her brain and Drew with his sexy geekness made this story so much fun to read. Drew works for the FBI and is undercover investigating the company Cassie works for in shady deals on government contracts. All the evidence points to Cassie but Drew's gut tells him she's not cut out for underhanded dealings. So now is he working to prove she's guilty or working to find who the real culprit is?? And this thing between them. Will it work out once the truth is known? This is a fun quick read that I highly recommend.

One awkward pairing ends up leading to the perfect match. The Wrong Kind of Compatible is my introduction to author Kadie Scott. She lets readers know that she's a force to be reckoned with. Not many authors can make computer hacking into an exciting story that seduces and intrigues all while laying claim to the body's most vital organ. The heart. Drew and Cassie set out to entice and do so in a way that is as fresh and mysterious as the characters themselves.

This is the first time that I read a book from Kadie Scott and I was not disappointed. This book had me laughing from the very beginning that it was hard to put the book down. Cassie and Drew are so perfect together. They understand each other in a way not many might be able to. Their exchanges and their sexual innuendos are so funny specially since they all have something to do with programming. Their jokes and double entendres are so dorky that it makes you laugh. Drew might have started working in Data Minds to find evidence against Cassie but he soon realized he got more than what he bargained for. This book has a little bit of everything comedy, romance and steamy scenes. A must read! This book was given by NetGalley for an exchange for an honest review.

Talk about a fun read! Romance between computer geeks who are more comfortable doing coding than carrying on human interaction! Kadie Scott’s THE WRONG KIND OF COMPATIBLE is a delightful romantic comedy that takes “awkward” to a new level. Cassie knows her stuff, stick in front of a computer and cut her loose, no problems, she has earned the position she has, one keystroke at a time. Stick her in front of a handsome new geek and watch her filters and firewalls crumble as her thoughts go from her brain and right out her mouth! Drew is definitely a geek, definitely handsome and most definitely NOT the most socially skilled guy on the block. He also has a secret and an undercover mission, one that could end up destroying the woman he is falling hard and fast for. The big question, if what he discovers is true, will there be any way to re-boot the budding romance that is growing between himself and Cassie or will their romance face the blue screen of death? Kadie Scott has a real sense of humor when it comes to love! Sweet, sometimes silly, sometimes sizzling, only the secrets they each hold stand in the way to love, Funny one liners, charming scenes, some nasty secrets and corporate espionage, what’s not to love? Ms. Scott may have the perfect summer read in THE WRONG KIND OF COMPATIBLE! I received an ARC edition from Entangled : Lovestruck in exchange for my honest review.

Cassie Howard is a data analyst for a government contractor = nerd. She is lacking social skills and her colleagues treat her a little like Sheldon Cooper from the Big Bang Theory. One of her quirks is that she can't tell whether she is thinking or talking out loud and frequently expresses her innermost feelings out loud. Unbeknownst to her, her new colleague Drew Kerrigan is an undercover FBI agent investigating shady dealing at the company where Cassie works. Although Drew is tall, dark-haired, blue-eyed and muscular he is also a hacker and a bit on the nerdy side too. Oh, and his prime suspect for the shady dealings is none other than Data Minds' prodigy data analyst, Cassie. Of course we know that it isn't Cassie but apparently the combined might of the FBI can't identify the real culprit. As Cassie and Drew bond over a love of coding and Star Wars can Drew uncover the real criminal? How many times do I have to write, I liked it but I didn't love it? I didn't find Cassie and Drew very convincing nerds, apparently having unmatched underwear is code for geek! A lighthearted read, perfect for the beach but not one I would re-read. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher via NetGalley in return for an honest review.

LOVED this book! This is fun, funny, and smart - all wrapped around a great story. Cassie is a very smart data analyst and used to being the smartest person in the room. Then Drew is hired and is given the same job title as hers. Cassie has not interest in sharing her role, but then Drew is in her face and too cute for words, except she keeps blurting out whatever she's thinking. I loved the characters and felt engrossed and invested in their story. Add in all the funny computer nerd jokes and their odd idiosyncrasies and you've got a great tale. This is a must read for fans of the genre. I'm adding the author to my must read authors' list and going to work my way through her back list (published under a different name). Snag this one on release day - you'll be glad you did.

Cassie Howard is a data analyst. She’s quirky, brilliant, and a bit awkward. When her company hires hottie Drew Kerrigan to work with her, she soon goes from irritated he's encroaching in her domain, to interested. Drew’s actually an undercover FBI agent, infiltrating Cassie’s company to find out who has been stealing information from other businesses to benefit Cassie's company. When he meets Cassie, he knows he’s in trouble, because he’s attracted to the prime suspect. I really enjoyed this quick, romantic read, and finished it in just a few days. The romance built slowly, but I enjoyed the heat in Cassie & Drew’s early interactions. Steam level is moderate (or 3.5 on a scale of 5). And the cute/dorky computer jokes made me laugh out loud. I found it hard to put this book down. Cassie & Drew’s story is loaded with heart and a touch of mystery. The twists at the end kept me guessing while flipping the pages so I could find out what happened next. It’s a perfect read for when you’re sitting under a beach umbrella, a tropical drink by your side. I look forward to reading whatever Kadie writes next.
