Review: Love 2.0 by Lee Kilraine

lvis has been spotted in the little town of Climax, North Carolina. Or at least, a shapely female Elvis impersonator—who’s got Kaz Cates all shook up . . .

Kaz is having one of those days. Cyber criminals, federal agents . . . and now, Elvis. In reality, the King is Mirabel Diaz, earning money by delivering singing telegrams. But Mira’s got another reason for being here: she knows Kaz Cates is secretly a master hacker with the skills to help people disappear, and that’s exactly what she needs to do. Still, Kaz can’t help wishing she’d stay awhile . . .

This isn’t Mira’s preferred career—her singing voice isn’t even that great—but her ex-boyfriend, a powerful Russian gangster, hasn’t left her a choice. No matter where she runs, he seems to find a way to pull strings and get her fired. If she doesn’t get off the grid, his vengeful acts may only get worse. Kaz reluctantly agrees to help, and insists on teaching her self-defense. Though she’s afraid to trust any man, she feels safe with Kaz . . . and welcomed by his family. But if they don’t stop the danger that’s chasing her, she may have to go on the road again instead of finding a haven in his arms . . .

Terri's Thoughts

I received an advanced copy of this book from the publisher via Netgalley in exchange for an honest review.  Thank you!  the expected publication date is April 18th 2017.

This is part of the Cates brother series featuring 5 brothers where each up to now has received their own story.  While I have read the story of Quinn and Tynan, I somehow missed Sijan's story.  This is the fourth featuring Kaz.  One can only assume that Paxton's story will follow.  This can be read on its own as the previous characters only offer small parts within the story.

While I wasn't heavily invested in Mira as a character, I did enjoy Kaz.  There is something to be said about the hot, nerdy guy.  For some reason this type has always held more appeal to me than the buff alpha male.  he was the best of both worlds, easy on the eyes and intelligent and sensitive (to a point, he is after all a nerd).

The storyline doesn't offer any real surprises to those who have followed the series thus far however does manage to entertain.  I liked the fact that the relationship between Mira and Kaz took a natural progression.  They were dating for weeks and just didn't realize it.  So much better than a relationship based on physical attraction.  You could see the emotional relationship build between these two.

Overall a good read in an entertaining series.  I look forward to Paxton's story next.  I will close with my favorite quote from the book

"Some men are blessed and are in tune with women's needs and preferences and they just know.  I have yet to meet one of those men.  I think they are like unicorns.  We women always search for them, but they might be pure fantasy"
