Code Red

Code Red

Source: eARC/NetGalley 
After getting hurt in college by a gorgeous man, Nicole Magette vowed never to risk losing her heart again. Now she lives a structured and satisfying life. Her work is easy, her friends are her family, and the only consistent men in her life are her two cats, Winchester and Huntington Peabody the Third. She doesn't date, and she hooks up only with losers—men she has absolutely no risk of falling for. But if she finds herself in danger, she has her old fail-safe in place—the Code Red.

In college, she and her four best friends came up with the system as a way to keep away the good-looking bastards that might worm their way past their carefully constructed walls. Seven years later, three of her friends have succumbed to their last Code Reds and are happily married. Now it’s just Nicole and her closest friend, Jen, who are still on their own, and Nic is just fine with that.

That is, until Joshua Daniels is transferred to Nicole’s office from New York and assigned to work with her on a special project. He's everything she's avoided and everything she claims she doesn't want, so why can’t she get him out of her mind? He's persistent, dangerously handsome, and sexy as sin. In other words, he’s her worst nightmare. She turns to her friends to help her resist Josh’s considerable charms and the inescapable draw she feels every time she gets near him. Can the Code Red save her this time, or will Josh send her perfectly balanced life into chaos?

My Review... 

I thought this was a good book with a great leading couple and an amazing group of good friends.  Besides the main character having the last name Magette which I kept thinking of Magots every time I read it it was good. 

However, there were many times that I wanted to slap Nicole across the head and say "Get over yourself already" because lets be honest her story was not that drastic that she had to be so hardcore and stubborn about it. There are a lot of worst things that could have happened besides cheating. And with that cheating she also gained to great friends because of that.  

I have to admit Nicole's friends are awesome I love their support and honesty especially when Nicole gets crazy. They still love her even though she is a bit mad sometimes. They might be my favorite part of the book. 

Now let's talk about Joshua. I loved him from the first moment he enters into Nicole's office.  He is smart, gorgeous, honest, and loves Nicole for who she is (crazy and all). He could be the perfect man and may even be Book BF worthy.  He is going to have to sit with me for a bit and if I can't get him out of my mind then he will make the list. :) 

Once Nicole calms down and can finally lets Josh in their relationship blossoms and you can see the real connection between the two of them.  It is raw and yet still pretty.  Their relationships is a nice mix of angst, humor, passion and love.
