Wired

by Julie Garwood

Library Journal Ever since computer science whiz Allison Trent secretly took down a clever trio of greedy students involved in illegal hacking, she's been hooked on the thrill of breaking into "impossible" sites and collecting intriguing bugs. Though she does no harm, she's been skirting the law, so when she's offered a job by the FBI to help discover an internal leak, she hesitates. She just wants to finish college and stay out of jail, but the FBI isn't about to let her go, and it's up to charismatic agent Liam Scott to change her mind. A brilliant, puzzle-solving heroine and an enigmatic, persuasive FBI agent fight their attraction as they unmask a traitor, ruin a thief, and see a pair of vicious relatives get their come-uppance. VERDICT This nonstop story tempers danger with humor and keeps readers guessing. RITA winner Garwood (Fast Track) lives in Leawood, KS. Copyright 2017.

Book list Computer hacker Allison Trent bent a lot of rules in the search for justice. On the rare occasion that she actually did break a rule by hacking into a protected computer site, she always did so with the best of intentions. But that doesn't mean Allison doesn't know that she could very well end up behind bars if anyone found out what she's been up to. FBI agent Liam Scott is desperate. Someone inside the FBI is leaking classified secrets that put a number of high-priority cases in jeopardy, and Liam needs Allison's computer expertise to find the culprit. While Allison likes to think she is one of the good guys, she has no intention of accepting Liam's offer until he offers a proposition she simply can't refuse. After a three-year literary hiatus, Garwood returns with another thrilling romantic suspense novel that neatly showcases her flair for creating engaging and easily relatable characters and a compelling plot that seems to have been ripped from today's headlines.--Charles, John Copyright 2017 Booklist
