Publisher's Summary

A beautiful computer hacker and a bad-boy FBI agent must collaborate - in more ways than one - in the sizzling new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood.

Allison Trent doesn't look like a hacker. In fact, when she's not in college working on her degree, she models on the side. But behind her gorgeous face is a brilliant mind for computers and her real love is writing - and hacking - code. Her dream is to write a new security program that could revolutionize the tech industry.

Hotshot FBI agent Liam Scott has a problem: a leak deep within his own department. He needs the skills of a top-notch hacker to work on a highly sensitive project: to secretly break into the FBI servers and find out who the traitor is. But he can't use one of his own. He finds the perfect candidate in Allison. Only, there's one problem - she wants nothing to do with his job and turns him down flat.

What Liam doesn't know is that Allison is hiding secrets that she doesn't want the FBI to uncover. But Liam will do nearly anything to persuade her to join his team, even break a few rules if that's what it takes. A temptation that could put his job - and both of their futures - on the line...

Save your credit! Can't believe this is Garwood.

So, I have been reading/listening to Garwood for years and love her intricate plots and rich characters. This book has none of that...started out thinking maybe...quickly learned, not so much. The characters had no fire, no heat, little interest. The plot was all over the place. Very scattered and no focused storyline at all. What's her name (already forgot the leads name) was really smart in her work and really dumb and spineless in her personal life. And not very self aware. Liam, could have been a great male lead - but not very self aware and just not around enough in the book. Kind of in and out. Very flat ending....very little tension/suspense at all. Ugh. Save your credit.

Very Simplistic

I have always loved Julie Garwood. This book didn't read like her. I found the dialogue and characters lacked interest and complexity. There was none of the humor and banter I associate with a Julie Garwood book. I wasted a credit.

Disappointed

I was kind of annoyed with the story. Liam was not really likable and I was kind of hoping the story would have Allison get some other guy. And the story was kind of all over the place. I love Julie Garwood's books. Super bummed.

I can’t take another minute of this

Was this book written by an idiot?
Allison is supposed to be a computer hacking genius but she doesn’t even protect her passwords from her college roommate, let alone say or do anything in this book to make her character believable. Socially and emotionally, she’s a moron and we’re supposed to feel for her because of her upbringing but she’s just too infuriating.
Liam is supposed to be a heart-throb but there’s practically no description to give me any reason to give a crap about him. Even the interaction between Liam and Allison gives zero reason for her to care about him (even considering she’s a social and emotional moron).
Charlotte is a harping nag who is supposed to be Allison’s rock that cares for her and raised her but their interaction feels like Charlotte doesn’t know Allison at all.
There are like 4 plots that are all so incredibly uninteresting, I can’t even say I’m curious how everything turns out.
This book really feels like it was written by an amateur, yet the other reviewers are saying how they love all of the authors other books so I just don’t get it.
This book is terrible.
The Narrator isn’t helping either. She pauses too long between every sentence, adds this funky breath-sound to the end of one-syllable words, does not understand conversational inflection whatsoever, and I can’t stand her “man” voice.

Loved it!!!

I am a big fan of Julie Garwood, love all her books, 'Wired' was a very good book. Now that I'm finished with it, I want to read it again.

The plot was good but characters lame

She was a talented hacker and started as a strong likable person but was so weak willed romantically that I quickly lost respect for her character. The hero was a complete control freak and a donkeys behind. Don’t waste your credits in this one.

Good story needs better editing /writing

Overuse of same descriptive phrases and truisms annoying and detracted from interesting story line. Main character too whiny and insecure to be believable.

Not what I expected from Julie Garwood

This read and sounded like it was written to fulfill a contractual obligation. It was flat and didn't have the same spark of previous books in this series.

Flat characters unbelievable storyline

The main character was entirely unbelievable. Model genius who is so mild mannered she apologized the entire book. No sarcasm, no snark, righteous indignation. As far as the crime goes, we are led to believe that criminals would attempt to kidnap/harm someone with visible FBI agent guards. As far as the love story goes, there is nothing there. As far as I can see the hero loves the heroine because she is pretty.

Returned it

Juvenile and rambling. 2/3 way through, it still wasn't clear what the point of the plot was. The language was was downright silly at times. There were strange lazy references to Boston culture that just pointed out how little effort the author put into researching them. It just felt formulaic, like the author had stopped trying.

Woman is inferior to man bla bla bla

I liked the beginning and was in the mood for romance. Story seemed a bit different with a computer geek and smart woman at the helm but it went downhill. She is stunning and sweet and vulnerable but wait she is also weak and needs the man to save her and we are back in the 1960s. He swoops down and saves the day and the girl. I wish the author had of turned the story into the opposite because that's real life. Woman saves man. Women are strong and don't need saving. Would have made a better story and certainly a clever version rather than old tired and old fashioned

bad accent

Any additional comments?

I have only started, don't think I will finish. I went straight to the other comments to see if any one else had a problem too, in listening to the Australian accent...I can't go any further myself, it is literally hurting my teeth. Only 2 other people mentioned it, Im kind of scared that people actually think, that this is what we sound like.
For the book itself? I had to start over twice initially and that was before the horrid Liam sound came into it, so I guess it was not that interesting. Not like the usual Julie Garwood novels of the past.
