Series: Wired & Dangerous #1
Blurb: The Fast and the Furious meets Mr. Robot in USA Today bestselling author Megan Erickson’s thrilling new romantic suspense series.
Hacker extraordinaire Roarke Brennan lives each hour – each breath – to avenge his brother’s murder. His first move: put together a team of the best coders he knows. They’re all brilliant, specialized, and every one an epic pain in his ass. Only now Wren Lee wants in too, threatening to upset their delicate balance. The girl Roarke never allowed himself to want is all grown up with sexy confidence and a dark past … and she’s the wild card he can’t control.
Roarke might still think she’s a kid, but Wren’s been to hell and back. Nothing and nobody can stop her – especially the tatted-up, cocky-as-all-hell hacker. But when years of longing and chemistry collide, Wren and Roarke discover that revenge may be a dish best served blazing hot.
Zero Hour is the first instalment of Megan Erickson’s Wired and Dangerous series, following a team of hackers as they avenge the death of one of their own.
It did take me a little bit to get into Zero Hour, there was a slow build up and I was a bit worried Roarke was going to be an alpha-like asshole. But once things were in motion I ended up enjoying quite a bit. I particularly like Wren and Roarke’s chemistry and although they were definitely into each other I was glad Zero Hour didn’t dissolve into the whole ‘forget the mission, let’s just bang for the whole time’ thing. The plot was well-formed and wasn’t taken over by the romance.
“You’re back for one day, and I’ve already spilled my secrets.”
I loved the diverse team of hackers, they all had distinct personalities and complemented (as well as antagonised at times!) each other well.
Though I found it a little slow to start I had a fun time reading Zero Hour. It was a little bit of a bittersweet ending because they all had to go their separate ways though from the looks of it they might not be separated for long. I am eagerly anticipating the next two instalments.
