Technically Yours

Berkley. Dec. 2023. 384p. ISBN 9780593437216. pap. $17. CONTEMPORARY ROMANCE
After a scandal rocks OurCode, a nonprofit that inspires high schoolers, particularly of marginalized identities, to code, Pearl Harris must step up as acting director. Not only does Pearl have new responsibilities and an organizational reputation to repair but she also finds herself back in the company of coding expert Cord Matthews, the CEO of FitMe. Five years ago, Pearl left FitMe after realizing that she and Cord were falling in love, something that previously heartbroken Pearl was not willing to risk. Now Cord finds Pearl just as captivating as the first time they danced around their feelings, even if he vowed to never fall in love again. With both their hearts and their workplaces on the line, the two coders must find the right fix for their glitched start.
VERDICT In flashback-laden, dual-POV style, Williams (Do You Take This Man) uploads her best yet contemporary romance, full of complex characters, the highs and lows of being a Black woman in STEM, and plenty of steam. Recommend to readers who enjoyed Jasmine Guillory and Chloe Liese.
