be normal Extraordinary is not normal Stunning is not normal Brilliant is Not Normal Code of Conduct is an exciting new chapter in author April White s admittedly already impressive writing resume Known for her incredible fantasy action adventure books Immortal Descendants series look it up, you won t regret it , April has taken her remarkable talent as a writer and combined it with the insight gained from her personal skills as a former PI, in order to bring forth one extraordinary suspense filled romance, that is a highly entertaining concoction of giggle snort funny dialogue, raw and superbly edgy energy, as well as sharp, witty and fresh characterisation and plot I can t tell you how refreshing it is to be handed a truly unique, sarcastic, strong female protagonist like Shane, who doesn t wilt and simper or get kidnapped and require rescuing at the first sign of a sexy tall man hello, Gabriel She is the personification of every kick ass heroine out there, the one heroine that you would love your daughter or son to emulate As an amputee, Shane has faced challenges than most and that is certainly evident in her personality, how she reacts and tries to blend in She is fiercely determined, highly intelligent and intuitive but the downside to all of this is her reluctance to get close to anyone She is strong, yes, but she is so lonely and that becomes glaringly obvious as the story progresses and she is pulled into friendship from a certain Knitting in the City gang, with a penchant for lemon drops cocktails Gabriel is an absolute sweetheart He straddles the line between being a British alpha hero and a beta He s simply magnificent, robust, manly but so very sweet and tender Especially when it comes to dealing with our skittish heroine His need to protect is overwhelming but he also recognises that Shane rarely needs that protection But it s the knowledge that it s there, that he wants to keep her safe, care for her, that starts to promote a spark of something much , something that transcends them being mere partners trying to solve a case Writing a book that includes another author s very well known and adored characters, can be a deathly daunting task but April White has managed to not only capture the true essence of those people, in particular Alex and Sandra she has also created a whole new family that fits in so perfectly with the Cipher and KITC gang Code of Conduct is a sterling addition to the Smartypants franchise It is exciting, addictive, intelligent, hilarious and full of so much love from all sides We have trouble believing the good things people say how smart, or funny, or interesting, or remarkable we are but we have no trouble totally owning the bad stuff If I m going to give words any power at all, I m going to make damn sure it s the ones that light me up like a damn Christmas tree, you know Love, Love, LOVE this book Code of Conduct reads a bit like a suspenseful urban action adventure with lots of slow burn romance mixed in I can do soft and gentle I m actually a fairly gentle guy She chuckled at that But I m not feeling very gentle at the moment I I struggled to find the word I crave you You re like the air when I m underwater, or like fire when I m frostbitten I need to smell your hair, taste your skin, feel the weight of your body on mine I am so f ing hungry for you 5 Stars My full review I highly recommend this book This is the second book I have read in the Smartypant Romance series and I have loved both Code of Conduct takes place in Penny Reid s Cipher Security world I absolutely love a modern romance mixed with a mystery so this was the perfect set up for me April White created two amazing characters as the leads in this novel Shane is a strong willed PI with a vulnerability that made her really likable She is also an amputee which I thought was depicted beautifully and added to her strength Gabriel is a sexy new employee at Cipher Security He was drawn to Shane from the start and their chemistry jumped off the pages This was an intriguing and intelligent read that I read through quickly Code of Conduct was a truly smart romance that I couldn t put down This book has cameos from our favorite knitting in the city characters but can also be read as a stand alone However, you are doing yourself a major disservice if you don t read the knitting in the city books as well The cameos were great and it was like catching up with old friends I especially loved the friendship that developed between Sandra and Shane Shane and Gabriel are welcome additions to the Penny verse This was my first novel by April White and I plan to read in the very near future This ARC was generously provided in exchange for an honest review.
