There are three things you need to know about Oliver Curran:
1) He’s a privileged playboy who happens to be a code-writing genius
2) For once in his life he’s trying to do the right thing
3) Someone wants him dead.
Dallas is a close protection specialist at Cipher Security whose bodyguard skills have already saved Oliver’s life once. But when the assassin gets too close to her uncooperative client, Dallas takes the party boy away from the city where he’s the social king, to the Yukon wilderness where she’s a master of survival.
If Dallas has to put her life on the line for a self-absorbed guy she doesn’t respect, then Oliver has to take orders from the too-serious woman he can’t charm. But living wild brings out their true natures, and suddenly funny is hot, capable is dangerous, and trust is the strongest survival skill of all.
‘Code of Ethics’ is a full-length enemies-to-lovers romantic suspense and can be read as a standalone. Book #3 in the Cipher Security series, Seduction in the City world, Penny Reid Book Universe.

Code of Ethics by April White
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
Publication Date: September 21, 2021
Let me start out by saying that I’m a HUGE fan of April White’s storytelling.
Her characters and stories are unique, smart, interesting, and engaging.
And in saying that, Ms. White has outdone herself with this story!
I finished reading Code of Ethics a couple of nights ago, and over the last couple of days, I’ve been having a hard time trying to decide how to write my review.
There are so many things I loved about this book. So, I’ll try to break it down as best as I can.
1) The characters.
Dallas was so friggn’ kick-ass! I loved, loved, loved her!
And Oliver, he was AMAZING!
I loved how the author showed his intelligence, as well as his vulnerabilities. The whole time I was reading this story, I kept picturing him as Dan Levy (who just happens to be one of my favourite people… ever).
The secondary characters were also what made this story top-notch.
Reed, Mark, Grandpops, Darius, and of course Anna are who made this story complete on all levels.
2) The story
The whole idea of Oliver’s program, facial recognition, and social media was inspiring, educational, and really scary.
3) Educating people on the Residencial School system and the Indigenous People in Canada.
As a Canadian, this topic is so dear to my heart.
I know people, and have had extended family members who were stolen from their homes as children and forced to attend these schools. Ms. White was only able to touch a little bit on this atrocity, but the fact that she did was amazing!
I read this book while the leaders of my country are campaigning for the upcoming election on September 20th, and the accountability for the “Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women” final report was a major topic during the debates.
My country is also enraged, and in mourning with the discovery over the past months of the unmarked graves found on residential school property.
4) The quotes from “The Spell of Yukon” by Robert Service.
I grew up listening to Robert Service’s poems (via album) performed by Hank Snow as a kid.
“The Cremation of Sam McGee” and “The Shooting of Dan McGrew” are still my favourite songs/poems.
So to sum up, I loved this story!
Thank you April White for writing this wonderful story! It’s one of my favourite stories…ever!
