Book Review: Operation Owl (Beyond Fairytales #3) by Tara Quan

A Beyond Fairytales Adaptation of Grimm’s The Owl

Five years ago, Maya Jain kissed her best friend only to have him run out of her dorm room and leave the state. When he shows up in Washington, D.C., a wanted fugitive sought after by every branch of the US government, she can’t bring herself to ignore his plight. As their physical relationship picks up where it left off, she decides it’s time to make him see her as more than the bespectacled, bookish girl he once called “Owl.”

After being accused of espionage and treason, Zack Strong needs a forensic accountant to help clear his name. Not knowing who he can trust, this white-hat hacker has no choice but to ask his former best friend and math tutor for help. Together they unravel a cyber conspiracy at the Barn, an NSA facility tasked to intercept electronic communications. But as they traverse the nation’s capital to avoid capture, Maya insists on letting their simmering sexual tension take its natural course. Even though he’s never been able to shake the memory of their one kiss, he refuses to let her give up her life for a man with no future.

Genre: Contemporary Romantic Comedy, Multicultural 

My Review
I’ve read two other books by Ms. Quan and I enjoyed them both. This fairytale series is opening my eyes to stories I’ve never heard about.

I’ll admit to getting lost a little bit when it came to the computer stuff (my head is still spinning), but the story was wonderful. The story of nerds who made it seem cool because it helped them to figure out the mystery. I hadn’t expected the book to be filled with such espionage and action. I love the action.

And the romance was hot. Five years in the making, it had to be. It was sweet and hot at the same time.

I give this book five out of five owl shaped chocolate bars.

I purchased this book from Amazon.
