Hardwired The Hacker Series: One by Meredith Wild
Erica Hathaway learned early on how to make it on her own and is determined to overcome her difficult past. Now just days after her college graduation she is face-to-face with a panel of investors that will either make or break her fledgling start-up business. She thought she was prepared until she finds herself going weak in the knees for an investor that is both arrogant and gorgeous and who seems determined to derail her presentation.
Blake Landon is a billionaire that is also rumored to be a hacker. He has made his fortune in software and is used to getting whatever he wants. Since Erica first stepped into his boardroom he has wanted to possess her and is captivated by her drive and unassuming beauty. Blake is determined to win Erica over by fighting for her trust and breaking down her defenses and if he needs to sacrifice a level of control that he has grown accustomed to he will.
Blake ends up uncovering a dark secret from Erica’s past and now not only is her trust threatened but also the life she has fought hard to create.
This is the start of a series that proves to be very interesting and hard to put down. Seeing how the characters get past their hang ups to have a relationship together is very satisfying and will keep the reader turning the pages just to see what will happen next. The plot while similar to other books still manages to be different and makes for a story that will have readers wanting to read the next book to see just what will happen next. It does end in a cliffhanger but it still works well with the overall story line. This is one book that is worth checking out.
I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
