Review: Wired

Book Review: Wired, by 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…and longing for more . . .


Genre: romantic suspense

Publication date: July 2017

Mature content: yes

Review: Wired is a good, entertaining book for those who love romantic suspense. You just can't ask yourself too much "is this how the FBI really works?" Because then, putting location bracelets on employees as if they were dogs in need of a chip, calling employees assets all the time and having not one but several agents shifting assignments to take care of personal issues...well, it may not make much sense to you.
There's also a lot of "oh, he's so muscular and handsome and how could he fall for me when I'm a nobody", Allison's genius with computers does not extend to anything else in her life and the bad guys are all cliches.

 

But if you look at the big picture and don't dwell a lot on the details, the story is still capable of holding your attention and it's a great book to spend a couple of hours with and clear your mind of more serious issues, especially during the summertime.  

Wired is part of a series, but I haven't read any of the other books (though I have a few on my reading list) and I had no problems with it, so I can vouch it can be perfectly read stand alone.

Happy Readings,
