The Wrong Kind of Compatible by Kadie Scott

Data analyst Cassie Howard may be brilliant (and, okay, a little awkward), but she’s worked hard to get where she is. She definitely doesn’t need some sexy new analyst coming in and taking credit for her work. Or the inappropriate thoughts that keep popping out of her mouth she’d rather he not hear.

For undercover FBI agent Drew Kerrigan, computers have always made more sense than people, but he’d better develop some slick social skills in a hurry if he’s going to win over the too-tantalizing-for-his-sanity Cassie. Hacking their systems was easy. Now he’s just got to hack the one person in the company most likely to see through his ruse…

The Wrong Kind of Compatible, a smart, sexy Contemporary Romantic Comedy, the first of the Love Undercover series. Cassie & Drew are two scary smart, data analysts working hard to build their careers in New York City.  Cassie is a woman who simply doesn’t do sub-par & is currently laser focused on an analysis that will take the company she works for to an even higher level.  Drew is the new computer whiz hired to help her make that happen – who also happens to be one of the best hackers in the world. 
Told in third person point of view this is a fun, cute, Big Bang Theory-esque, fast paced read.  Between Cassie’s internal dialogue & involuntary verbal outbursts “Holy smoking hotness, Batman.  No computer nerd has a right to look like that.” & Drew’s complete lack of people skills – “Computers he got.  Interactions with people took effort.” the quirky dialogue of these characters will have you cracking up.  They have a great instant connection that is built upon as the story progresses.  Romance, comedy with a mini-mystery who dun it, a little of everything.

I really enjoyed these characters.  Cassie with her impressive mind, quick wit, the classic smart girl, sensible, logical, capable, amazing at her job –are only a few of her loveable quirks.  And Drew – who doesn’t love a man who is all sorts of awkward!  I adored the word play & how these characters kept up with each other on their own level – stimulating exchanges along with an undercurrent of sexual innuendo  “Her smart complimented his smart in an even better way than how her awkward mirrored his own.  Crazy funhouse mirror style, but still the same.”... "Wait?  Did I say that one out loud?"
