THE NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER

“Once again, Garwood delivers another suspenseful, highly entertaining and romantic story line in Wired.”—The Associated Press

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...

Wired by Julie Garwood is a predicable romance. I didn't even finish it. Allison is a computer hacker and she meets FBI detective, Liam. The story went no where. I only got as far as page 32, before I realized that all of Julie Garwood's contemporary romances are all alike. And not worth reading! I wish she would go back to writing historicals because that's what made Ms. Garwood a bestselling author.

To most people, Alison Trent looks like an extremely beautiful college student, but looks can be deceiving. Alison Trent is actually a very talented computer hacker, and just the girl the FBI needs to track down a breach in their own system. Liam Scott seeks to recruit her, but can't stop the attraction he feels for her. This is a quick read. I picked it up and was halfway done with it before I knew it. Typical romance, nothing new here, but still a fun, light, entertaining read for someone who just wants some brain candy.

After waiting months on the list for this book, I was sorely disappointed. It wasn't hard to read it quickly so the other 156 people waiting could get at it. The plot is very thin, and most if not all of the story line reminded me of Garwood's other novels. It was nice to reconnect with the Buchanan clan again, however I have read all the previous books and found it odd that the two main characters in Wired are apparently so close to the Buchanan's, yet never ever were mentioned in previous books. I read the book as I love Garwood's earlier novels, yet if this was her first book I had read, I likely wouldn't pick up another one.

Usually she writes very well but I wasn't impressed with this book. Her characters didn't seem as well presented as in other books. I was disappointed to say the least.

I picked up this book because I liked that the female lead was a genius computer hacker, it doesn't seem common. I thought she was a strong character with how she took care of herself. But I really didn't like the male lead and their relationship together. He barely knows her and is already overprotective of her. I thought most of the storyline was very flat and predictable. I've never read Julie Garwood before so maybe this is her style. I'm glad I tried something new and I did like the first few chapters of the book.
