Rough Code was crazy. It was my first title from Kim Congram and what a ride. There was a lot going on and I was never quite sure which way was up but for some reason I didn't want to put it down.
I liked Evie. A whole lot. She was brave and so smart and so lonely. She had her reasons for living life the way she was. And when I learned just what she had endured and survived, it made me root for her all the more. No matter how much she wanted to let her guard down and build friendships, a family, she knew she couldn't. Because the moment she let her walls down, everything was going to change- and not for the better. And, sadly, she was right.
I loved the way Luc took his time with Evie, made her comfortable enough to open herself up to him. But Luc and the whole team at Elliott Securities wasn't having Evie trying to push them away for their own sake. She was part of their family and they weren't going down without a fight. And it was Luc leading the charge to keep the woman he loved safe.
Overall, I found Rough Code enjoyable. The writing was straightforward and easy to follow. For as much as I liked Evie and Luc, I wanted to feel a bit more of their connection. This slow-burning suspense kept me invested in the outcome. The final showdown was intense and had my heart racing. And as much as Luc and the team were a part of take down of the tangled web, it was Evie who saved herself (super yay).
