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 Bottom Line: I tend to allow my book reviews to pile up, and then get written during a marathon session. I find, as soon as I pull the book up on Goodreads, the read just floods my memory and off I go . . . . Unfortunately, not much flooded my memory with The Wrong Kind of Compatible. I liked Cassie and Drew just fine, I generally enjoyed the story, but I wasn’t blown away. Cassie is by far the strongest character with her no edit button mouth and her belief in her superior skills. She’s strong and funny (though she doesn’t always intend to be funny) and I liked her. Drew is fine though I’m not sure he ever exhibited enough of anything (other than computer skills) to be a true match for Cassie. This isn’t a book I would eliminate from your TBR list, but I also wouldn’t push it near the top any time soon either. To be completely honest, there wasn’t much here that hasn’t been done a thousand times over in other books. With that being said, if you’re looking for a quick and easy read that won’t tax your brain power, but will, at least mildly entertain you, try out The Wrong Kind of Compatible.
