What happens when the rules and the heart conflict? In Mary Billiter’s witty novel of rule breaking and delectable romance, a red-hot suit and a beautiful computer geek are linked by heartbreaking loss and a passion certain to set fire to your pages.

From parking space to cyberspace, Waterfront Point hotel valet Carmen Gonzalez uncovers computer espionage at her own workplace. The independent, computer-whiz Carmen decides that the best way to fight the system is to hack it.

But when Hank Hughes arrives from the Oregon Coast to the Pacific Coast to take care of family business and avenge an injustice, Carmen’s “act first, think later” approach is called into question. Carmen soon realizes you can't follow the rules and follow your heart, so one has to be broken.

Rating: 3.5*

Whilst I enjoyed this read, I found it understand the comedy tag.  The events of the first few chapters took me on a route I hadn't expected and it was these events that made it hard for me to find the comedy in this book.

Carmen and Hank come together to get to the bottom of what is is happening at Waterfront Point Hotel by breaking the rules.  Carmen is a computer student who uses these skills to do a little breaking and entering of the cyber kind.

Even though there was lots of techno speak, I felt able to keep up and understand which meant I was able to stay in the story.  I found both the characters likable and the story moved quickly.  I enjoyed trying to figure out what was going on as well as the surprises along the way.
