Publisher Description

It is a truth universally acknowledged that a single man in possession of facial hair must be in want of a shave. And tidying. And a fake date.

My name is Holly Hyman. I love order and prime numbers—and I’m in trouble. The company I work for is pivoting, and not in a way I like. Our new management? Alex Chortsky, a gorgeous, scruffy Russian devil. Our new direction? VR entertainment of the spicy kind.

Maybe I wouldn’t mind it so much if my life’s work wasn’t meant for children. Or if I hadn’t accidentally hooked up with a VR version of my wickedly handsome boss.

The only way to save my dream project is to make a Faustian bargain. For one night, I pretend to be Alex Chortsky’s girlfriend.

What could possibly go wrong?

NOTE: This is a standalone, raunchy, slow-burn romantic comedy featuring a quirky, nerdy Anglophile heroine, a scorching hot Russian hero, and an unruly, oversized puppy. If any of the above is not your cup of tea, run away now. Otherwise, buckle in for a laugh-out-loud, feel-good ride.

Humorous and Addictive Read

Hard Byte is another fun read featuring Holly Hyman, a developer of a VR program for hospitalized children, who works for a company recently acquired by Alex Chortsky and his sister, Bella. This enjoyable read has amazing characters and a humorous storyline. I was addicted to this book from the first to last page. I highly recommend this amusing and sexy book.

The third installment of the Hard series, pun intended. I just love these characters and all of their quirks. It makes them so much more relatable. I love the humor of the books too. You get perfect imperfections in all Misha Bell novels!

What a riot!

I've been secretly pining for Alex's story ever since he showed up in book 1. I don't know what it is about him, but I've been drawn to his character from the start. And I love who he ends up paired with. Holly is just perfect for him.

This whole series has been hilarious. The Chortsky family is nutty and I get such a kick out of Alex's parents, Natasha and Boris. Their family dinners that have appeared in each book just makes me laugh.

I listened to the audiobook version and would highly recommend it. The narrators Ava Erikson and Aiden Snow are two of my favorite narrators. They did a fantastic job with this book.
