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…
and longing for more.

My Thoughts:  Wired is the first book I've read by Julie Garwood and I found it to be quite enjoyable.  Allison Trent is a beautiful woman whose life has been anything but easy growing up.  She is also a world-class computer hacker who is attending college and models on the side to pay the bills, a job she could easily make a career of if she so desired.  Liam Scott is a somewhat mysterious FBI agent who travels all over solving cases.  When his most recent case requires the skills of a far above average hacker, he finds and tries to recruit Allison, only she doesn't want the all.   Allison has secrets that could get her in a lot of trouble, although the things she's done were never for her own benefit.  When the lines become blurred between work and something much more intimate, thing get even more interesting.  

Wired has suspense, danger, and romance all encompassed in a great story, and is something that fans of contemporary romance and romantic suspense should certaily consider checking out.
