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 . . .

When I first read the blurb about this book I knew I had to read it.  A female hacker working with an FBI agent and sparks fly?!?!  Sign me up!  I am slightly obsessed with this type of suspense/mystery/romance!

This is my very first time reading anything by Julie Garwood and I was impressed.  This book is a part of a series but can be read as a standalone.  I read it without any issues without reading the other books.  Wired starts with Allison watching a news report where some lowlife hackers stole thousands from a retirement home basically wiping out the funds of all the elderly people, leaving them with nothing.  This story really struck Allison and she wanted justice for those people.  She made it her mission to bring the hackers down.

I really liked Allison, I felt a connection with her character because she is such a bad ass at hacking and is confident in her abilities but at the same time she has some baggage with her family.  The only family she really has that she can count on is her sister.  Her parents passed away and they were forced to live with their aunt, uncle, and cousin but never felt welcome.

Then there is Liam Scott, FBI agent and mysterious bad boy.  He teams up with Allison and there are some serious fireworks between the two.  He never wanted a relationship or family but being around the gorgeous, smart, Allison had him rethinking everything.

I an rating this book with 4 stars because I really enjoyed it.  I was fascinated with the plot and characters and look forward to reading more book by Julie Garwood.  I recommend this one!
