Title: Break Me
Just a few weeks ago, computer prodigy China Mack’s typical night in involved Endor Star Wars pajamas and a sensible bedtime. Now she’s dating gorgeous tech guru Jackson Cooper—one of Forbes’s Top Ten Eligible Billionaires—much to the Twitterverse’s delight.
Turns out, going from socially inept hermit to poster girl for geek chic has its challenges. China’s relationship gets even more complicated because her role heading the top-secret Vigilance program—where she’s partnered with Superman clone Clark Slattery—makes her a target. And when ruthless businessman Simon Lu plans to co-opt Vigilance software to blackmail government and military employees, he’ll need China’s cooperation—willing or otherwise.
But not every enemy is so easily identified. Some hide in plain sight, in very high places, and mistaking foe for friend could be the last mistake China ever makes…

I really like China Mack. She is so not your normal romance heroine. She’s ubersmart and lacking in social skills. Yet she’s not an automaton. She, though unwillingly, cracks open her strict regime to make room for people she cares for. She’s also able to run a company when many with her skills, young age and intelligence would prefer to hide behind their keyboard.
It’s fun to watch her learn to be in a relationship. Jackson has transcending his geeky, picked on boyhood self to become one of the hottest bachelors and he’s smitten with China. The relationship alone is new and the unfamiliarity of dating is stressful without throwing in fancy parties and socializing which China does not enjoy. China’s emotional attachment is moving slower than Jackson’s too. Like these two need relationship problems on top of all the external stressors in their lives.
I don’t know why or if it’s Snow’s intent but I’m rooting for Clark. I enjoy watching him fight his attraction to China especially because he’s trying to do what’s right for her. He’s a much nicer person than he ever lets on. I hope there’s another book so we can see where their working relationship and possibly mutual attraction lead.
I’ve not done the action in the book justice by focusing first on the romance. The book was intense. China is thrust into some very scary situations and literally fighting for her life, her company and her loved ones.
This book had it all and I really enjoyed it.
