As a long time fan of Julie Garwood’s books writing this review has been challenging. Let me start off by saying that I feel the book is well written and the storyline is interesting and worth the read. It was the relationship piece between Liam Scott and Allison Trent that seemed to lack the Garwood touch. I enjoyed reading about the characters from previous books and enjoyed Liam and Allison’s story. The way the relationship developed between Liam and Allison though left me feeling a bit flat. Will that stop me from buying the next Garwood release, no…no it will not.
The Story: Allison Trent is a model/hacker. She’s spent years under the radar and hacking for good causes. Suddenly FBI agent Liam Scott is in her life trying to hire her to hack the FBI and find a mole within his own department. She doesn’t want the job, he’s convinced she’s the only one that can help him, and all he has to do is convince her to do so. The more Liam tries to persuade Allison, and the more time he spends with her, he realizes that he doesn’t just want her to take the job but the position of permanent partner as well.
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...
