Series: Wicked Games #2
on July 18, 2016
A badass ex-Special Ops officer and a smartass hacker fight a dangerous enemy…and a blistering attraction to each other.
Connor Hughes is an ex-special ops officer, CEO of Metrix Security, and bonafide badass. His private security firm is renowned for its effectiveness. He’s renowned for his lethal precision and iron self-control. But when the former Marine meets a gorgeous young hacker with a mouth as smart as her brain, his control unravels in ways he never could have predicted.
Tabitha West is a genius MIT dropout with a bad attitude, an obsession with Hello Kitty and piercings in unmentionable places. Tabby amuses herself by outwitting the most secure technology systems on the planet. Known in hacker circles as Polaroid due to her photographic memory, she’s as secretive as she is accustomed to working alone. So when Connor decides she’s the only one who can help him catch a cyber criminal intent on taking down one of his clients, she tells him exactly where he can stick it.
But when the cyber criminal turns out to be the Hannibal Lecter of computer crime—and a dark presence from Tabby’s past—Tabby and Connor are drawn into a dangerous game of cat and mouse. They quickly find themselves fighting not only their common enemy, but also an explosive desire that threatens to consume them.
When the stakes are this high and the game this deadly, will falling in love be the most dangerous move of all?
It feels like my brain is going to explode any second now. OMG!
Now, I can’t really see the romance part. I think that with all that action and suspense, romance is somewhere in the bottom of the chart. Yes, the MCs fall in love, but it’s the mortal enemies-to-lovers kind of love (especially if you ask Tabby).
So, there’s the smartest girl in the world – Tabby and an ex-Marine – Connor who fight to take down a mastermind hacker.
The plot is mainly action and suspense, that made me forget how to breathe too many times.
