Loved it! 😍

If you're looking for a tech thriller, look no further than Neurogarden!

Brenna Patrick is a genius, but when video gets leaked from one of her projects at NeuralTech, the media begins speculating just what is going on behind the closed doors there. As part of her Master's Capstone, Jenny Mercado is supposed to give a presentation to Brenna and her team. She decides instead to go off the cuff and tell them what they need to do to stay on top of the viral video and keep the posts in their favor. Jenny's classmate and maybe boyfriend, Leo Martino, is also there for the presentation and doesn't seem too pleased that Jenny went off script. But Jenny ends up getting offered an internship at NeuralTech from Brenna. This ends up getting Jenny and Leo in the door to a big presentation that Brenna is giving on what their technology can do (along with creating more videos to "leak" before the wild 'what ifs' take over).

This story moves fast and it is a tech thriller through and through from the very beginning. I have been looking for a really good tech thriller that grabbed me and was pretty excited to see that this book seems to be the first in a series. Generally I don't like to dive into a series when I am not sure when subsequent books may be available, but while the end did leave things open ended, it also satisfied me enough that it wasn't a giant cliffhanger and I have to dive into more right away. And while everything is based in tech, it is not overly complicated and anyone should be able to jump on this roller coaster of a book even with no technical background whatsoever. The book will keep you on your toes and you probably won't be able to guess what will happen next - shocking twists and turns are everywhere in this thriller!
