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?
I think that I liked this book even better than the first one. This one centers on Tabby, Victoria's assistant and Parker's security guy Connor. They met in book 1, but this book takes place 3 years later.
There isn't much I can say about the plot of this book without spoiling things so I am going to keep my comments pretty short. Connor contacts Tabby to help him with a case and it turns out she is connected to the target they are investigating. Connor and Tabby have a pretty volatile relationship that gets pretty intense at times. This definitely makes for interesting reading and their chemistry is off the charts hot!
This story does have a lot more suspense than the last one and the action is what moves the story along at a good pace. There were elements, as with the last one, that are somewhat unbelievable, but no less interesting to read. There is a lot about computers and hacking and the damage that can truly be done by someone who knows what they are doing and that was interesting to me for sure. I also really liked getting to know Tabby and Connor better. They have a decent set up in book one, but this one really digs deep into who they are.
I am anxious to see if she does another installment in this series. This time I have no idea who the leads will be.
