Single in Silicon Valley by Kara L. M.

 
After the sudden death of her husband, 27 year old Juliette wants nothing more than a fresh start with her two small children. Being a computer programming prodigy she accepts a job at Google hoping to chase a dream and heal her heart. Free food, ping pong tournaments, sunshine and geeks galore was just what the doctor ordered. 

Cube mate and new best friend Yoku encourages Jules to get into the dating world. That would be easy enough if her other cube mate Christos aka "greek god" was interested. 

Jules quickly learns that dating in Silicon Valley is unlike anywhere in the U.S. She is surrounded by highly educated and sometimes insanely wealthy men. Finding love in the tech world can be tricky and having two kids isn't making it any easier. 

Her friendship grows with Christos as they exchange dating advice and hang out occasionally on the weekends. The self proclaimed play boy may actually be ready to settle down but there is just one problem.. she's taken.




Kara L. M. grew up in Salt Lake City, Utah minutes away from the breath taking rocky mountains. She loved spending time in the mountains hiking or down in southern Utah boating at Lake Powell.

Kara loved writing from a young age. By high school she had taken creative writing and was the entertainment editor for her school newspaper. By college she would choose a Mass Communications degree where she loved writing and editing her radio and TV projects. She was also involved with filming and editing a documentary for Joe Lee that was showcased in the broadcasters hall of fame.

Kara moved to the bay area and became a book worm of the YA theme. After cruising through several books a week she was inspired to write her own. What started as a hobby and creative outlet quickly changed over to a daily type fest! The first copies were read by friends who were unaware it belonged to her. Their positive feedback gave her the confidence to publish her first book Electric Fog.

Kara loves to rock climb, bike, visit the beach, cook and travel in her free time. 



Although the characters in this were easy to relate to I found the story lacking. This really does have the feel of a self published book.  The story lost me early on and it just didn't give me enough to want to really love it.
