Brilliant, quirky twenty-three-year-old China Mack is totally satisfied with her carefully ordered, data-driven life. A computer prodigy who landed a coveted programming job at the cutting-edge tech company Cysnet before even graduating from MIT, China is happiest when following her routine: shower before coffee, pizza only on Mondays, bedtime at ten thirty sharp.
But then things start to get a little…unpredictable.
First Jackson Cooper—Cysnet’s rich, gorgeous, genius CEO—assigns China to a dangerous and highly classified project for a government defense contractor. Her sixteen-year-old runaway niece suddenly arrives in town, begging to move in with China. And then there’s her sexy but oddly unsettling new neighbor, Clark…
Quickly the Cysnet assignment becomes disconcerting—and then downright scary—as key staffers turn up dead. China suspects she’s being followed and isn’t sure whom she can trust. For the first time ever, she’ll have to follow her instincts, rather than logic, if she’s going to survive.

Wow! It’s been awhile since I’ve read one of Tiffany Snow’s books (the Kathleen Turner Series which is awesome by the way), but now that I’ve finished Follow Me I’ve got to go and read her other two series. I sat down with her book yesterday after getting home to find it in the mail and read it in under twenty-four hours. I was hooked from the very start!
China Mack is not a computer hacker which I love to read about, but she is a programmer who is beyond smart. She’s quirky with her t-shirts from her favorite fandoms and not your typical heroine. She’s different than your average girl, but she’s doesn’t care. China is so easy to love! Being so smart did not make her life going up easy. Add on her OCD; her need to stick to her schedule, short, young, and limited social skills, China does not do well with people. She prefers the companionship of a computer. A computer can’t hurt you.
For the last four years since graduating from MIT, she’s worked for Cysnet. A company that other companies come to to solve their tech problems. Her boss, Jackson Cooper, is a genius prodigy who’s got the sexuality of Christian Grey, a billionaire who looks like Brad Pitt circa 2000 (YUM!!!) but with dark hair. Suddenly she’s being called into his office and asked to work on a project with because of her skills. Problem one: it’s highly classified. Problem two: writing that kind of software can be dangerous. Problem three: her teenage niece just moved in with her for a few months. I’m sure your mind is running away with itself coming up with all the possible problems that could ensue while she’s working on said project. Right? I know I was.
This wasn’t how things were supposed to be. My life was boring one of computer coding, varying ethnic takeout, and the never-ending quest for the perfect bra. Not secrets and murder and people threatening me.
China normally doesn’t do well in the presence of her hot boss, Jackson. She’s nervous, and her already limited social skills seem to leave her a mess. It doesn’t help that she’s been attracted to him and enamoured by his work for the last six years. Now they are working together.
You and I,” he began, “we’re similar in ways I’ve never found with anyone else. It’s… disconcerting. Don’t get me wrong, I know you’ve been interested in me for a while. But I don’t date employees.”
Enter quite a bit of funny scenario’s and thoughts from China. That’s one of the things I love about Tiffany Snow. Even though the book is intense with suspense and mystery, she writes in these funny parts that help take off the edge. Her writing style is one that grips you from the very beginning and provides great visuals. I highly recommend Follow Me if you love smart characters, mystery, suspense, hot guys, and romance. I cant’ wait until the next book comes out. I’ve already sent a message to the author asking when that will be. I can’t wait to see what’s next in this series!
Turned out masturbating was to actual sex what watching Star Wars on a fourteen-inch screen was to watching it in 3-D on an IMAX.
