What a unique read!

Roxanne Zaborovsky is a very likable character who is transformed by her experiences throughout the book. I could so see this as a movie on the Sci-Fi Channel. I am hesitant to try and explain the plot as I could reveal spoilers without meaning to. Mason Merrick and Leonardo Kaysar are both compelling leading men. It wasn't until the very end that I figured out which one of them to trust. I wouldn't classify this book as a romance per se but it did have romantic elements.

At first, I wasn't sure that I could get into the story but Ms. Maverick pulled me in and I was driven to find out what was happening. I found it to be a little confusing at first but everything is revealed in good time.

The ending was satisfying with a possibility for a sequel concerning Roxanne's best friend Kitty. I would highly recommend this to anyone looking for something different. I will definitely be interested in see what else comes out of the Shomi line. Ms. Maverick has the ability to write a futuristic novel without burying the reader in confusing lingo.

Book Blurb for Wired

Seconds aren't like pennies. They can't be saved in a jar and spent later. Fate seeps through cracks and shifts like fog. Pluck a second out of time or slip an extra one in, the consequences will change your life forever. Is the man you love really the man you think you know, or is there a version of your life in which he's your enemy? If you didn't know who or what you were before, would you take a chance on becoming that person again?

L. Roxanne Zaborovsky is about to discover fate is comprised of an infinite number of wires, filaments that can be manipulated, and that she's not the one at the controls. From the roguishly charming Mason Merrick -- a shadow from her increasingly tenebrous past -- to the dangerously seductive Leonardo Kaysar, she's barely holding on. This isn't a game, and the pennies are rolling all over the floor. Roxy just has to figure out which are the ones worth picking up.
