Pen Holloway’s done with men—in real life. Guys in game are so much less drama. But when her partner from Heroes of Fallen Gods invites her to the convention of the year, she panics. What if he’s another jerk? What if he’s not? Cal Burrows is living his dream of being a spy. One of TRAIT’s misfit spies, but still a spy. It’s the perfect job… until an arms dealer with a taste for blood invades his not-so-secret geek haven. All Cal wanted from ConDamned was to meet his on-line girl. Now, with the threat of mass murder looming, he’s forced to choose between keeping his mission a secret and protecting the girl of his dreams.Despite their attraction, Pen can’t help but suspect Cal’s hiding something. She also can’t shake the feeling he’s not as much of a stranger as he seems.


A blogger friend of mine recommended this title to me while it was free, telling me that—since I'm into geeky reads—I would have loved this one. Well, it took me just seconds to one-click it and one sitting to devour/fall for it! If you think short reads can't be that much well executed, you should grab this title and re-think that. Fast but well delivered, the story is original and catchy with very likable characters. I really liked deLaney's writing and the fact that she used references a nerd can only love, but even the non-nerdy ones can still appreciate and not feel lost during the whole read.

With the right dose of action, great chemistry and fun flirty lines, this story hooked me and I loved it! I would honestly recommend it to anyone who's up for a quick, refreshing and satisfying read.
