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…and longing for more . . .
I thought that I would love this book, Allison seemed like she would be such a bad ass but I sadly found her to be a wimpy people pleaser. One of my main problems with Allison was the way that she was so afraid of disappointing her horrible Aunt and Uncle who raised her only for the money. Time and again Allison let these people take her earnings from her modeling jobs to spend on their loser son who cannot stay out of trouble. As for the romance , there was zero chemistry between Allison and Liam, all of a sudden they just decided that they were an item. No fun banter or heat at all. The computer coding and hacking plot was not really intriguing at all to me and truthfully seemed a bit boring. The main problem for me with this book was Allison’s lack of backbone as hotshot computer hacker, it just wasn’t happening for her or me. While this book was readable, I did not enjoy it.
