No Room for Error by Julie Moffett
Series: Lexi Carmichael #7
Published by Carina Press Genres: Mystery & Detective, Suspense
Lexi Carmichael is still coming down from her last adventure, and she is enjoying her time with her boyfriend, the sexy and mysterious Slash. Both are talented hackers, but while Lexi works for a private investigation and security company, Slash works for the NAS. When Lexi is asked to take on a new mission, which concerns a major advance in technology and an invention by two of her friends, the Zimmerman twins, of course, she agrees. This case will take Lexi, her best friend Basia, and her boss, Finn, into another country to safeguard the invention and the manufacturing of it.
Lexi and Slash have a couple of close calls just before she leaves, but it’s unsure just who was the target. Lexi and everyone take off as scheduled, but that is the last thing that goes as expected. First, they are hijacked, then they crash, are hunted through a jungle, and then they are kidnapped. Through it all, Lexi keeps everyone going with the deep knowledge and belief that the Zimmerman twins and Slash will be tracking them down and will get them out. It’s certainly not a cakewalk, but Lexi is not going to let this invention get into the wrong hands, nor is she going to let anyone harm her friends. Just before she left, Slash teased Lexi that she had a dark cloud that followed her, but she knows that he is the bright lining in her dark cloud, if there is one. It appears that the good team has finally won, and they will all be safe now, or will even more betrayal be the final end of Lexi’s adventures and her love of Slash?
A self-proclaimed geek girl has yet another adventure in which she must put her wits against those who are trying to defeat her. Only this time, there is no computer or laptop helping Lexi win the day. Instead, she, Basha, and Finn must use their wits to stay one step ahead of those hunting them, while knowing that technology is helping those looking for them to bring them home safely. I have loved Lexi from her first appearance, but this is the first time I have seen her have to win without the use of any computer. It only showed me just how much she has grown and learned to trust her confidence when challenged. I loved watching how this journey progressed, and I have to admit I was putting as much faith in Slash and the Zimmerman twins as Lexi was as the pages were turned.
No Room for Error is an action-packed adventure, which really does pit good against evil. If you are anything like me, you will find yourself cheering and rooting for Lexi and her friends and cursing those looking to harm them. I also must admit that I loved the depth of love and trust that grows between Lexi and Slash by the time the last page is turned. I also admit to laughing as Lexi finds herself in yet another situation, but this one born of the love of her best friend. I can’t wait to see how this will turn out. No Room for Error is a must-read for any Lexi lovers.
