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. Her intelligence is off the scales but she has NO social skills. Thank goodness that she has a good heart and is loyal to her friends, her boyfriend and her country.
Her boyfriend Jackson is just as smart as she is but he has learned to play the game and has social skills. I really enjoyed watching China frustrate him when he tries to take their relationship forward based on feelings while she didn't feel that they hadn't logically been dating long enough.
There is a lot of action, some politics along with some comedy caused by China's not understanding social cues. I do recommend BREAK ME to any of my readers who enjoy romantic suspense with a touch of the quirky.
