Review: WIRED by Julie Garwood
REVIEW: WIRED by Julie Garwood
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...

~ Heather, White Hot Reads
I've been a HUGE Julie Garwood fan as long as I can remember. Her FBI books are my favorites and this one is no different. She has a formula and it works for her.
Allison is an insane computer genius and Liam is an FBI Agent. When the FBI needs assistance, Liam requests Allison to help with a secret project. What ensues is a constantly evolving game of cat and mouse. However we don't know who the cat is... Is it related to the secret project at the FBI or something in Allison's past or even her current life? There were so many avenues of crazy town that fed into this story it was a bit far fetched but none the less, it kept me entertained. It was fun and a fast read. There were some elements the author could have researched a bit more (access to FBI networks would NEVER happen without a background and clearance granted and that doesn't happen in one day) but I kept reading.
I felt the insta-love that Allison and Liam had and I was all for it. It worked for them.
I loved catching up with some of the older characters that we've met throughout the series also. They added another element of excitement.
Overall, I was very pleased with the book. Allison and Liam are entertaining characters with just enough passion to keep the reader wondering what is going to happen next.
