Blog Tour | Review and Giveaway: Code Red by @AmyNoelleWriter

The Writer's Coffee Shop


After getting hurt in college by a gorgeous man, Nicole Magette vowed never to risk losing her heart again. Now she lives a structured and satisfying life. Her work is easy, her friends are her family, and the only consistent men in her life are her two cats, Winchester and Huntington Peabody the Third. She doesn't date, and she hooks up only with losers-men she has absolutely no risk of falling for. But if she finds herself in danger, she has her old failsafe in place-the Code Red. In college, she and her four best friends came up with the system as a way to keep away the good-looking bastards that might worm their way past their carefully constructed walls. Seven years later, three of her friends have succumbed to their last Code Reds and are happily married. Now it's just Nicole and her closest friend, Jen, who are still on their own, and Nic is just fine with that. That is, until Joshua Daniels is transferred to Nicole's office from New York and assigned to work with her on a special project. He's everything she's avoided and everything she claims she doesn't want, so why can't she get him out of her mind? He's persistent, dangerously handsome, and sexy as sin. In other words, he's her worst nightmare. She turns to her friends to help her resist Josh's considerable charms and the inescapable draw she feels every time she gets near him. Can the Code Red save her this time, or will Josh send her perfectly balanced life into chaos?

A few months ago TWCS kindly gifted me an ARC of Code Red by Amy Noelle. Back in March I read it to get ready for this blog tour and oh my did I adore it. After Nicole Magette is cheated on a gorgeous man in college with various different girls she teams together with her existing friends and some of those girls to create Code Red. The premise is simple, when the girls fear a man could be bad for them they implement Code Red. It's worked thus far for Nicole, who keeps men at arms length and treats sex just like a man does. Wham, bam, thank you maam. SHe keeps life simple by living with two cats and sticking to her well practiced routine.

It's all going swimmingly until Joshua Daniels turns up at work from their New York office. He's wearing a suit, he's charming and above all else he's hot. Really, really hot. Nicole, fearing the worst, instantly instigates a Code Red. Except as time goes on her friends don't support it because they can all see that Josh and Nicole work really well together.

There are many reasons I loved Code Red. My favourite thing about it is it could have so easily been your typical boy meets girl with issues romance but it isn't. Amy develops a lovely story with these two, showing the development of their relationship and both their attitudes to relationships. I have to say that at one point I really wanted to knock their heads together and there was one point where I wanted to punch Josh' lights out but I digress.

Oh and another thing, I adored the UST. I thrive on it and I love a book that manages to convey UST well. Code Red did just that. I felt every moment of sexual tension between Josh and Nicole. I remember tweeting numerous times that the UST was killing me! ANd when it finally gets resolved? WOW! It was so worth the wait.
