Allison Trent has always had a special talent for computers. When she's not cleaning up after her troublemaker younger brother, Jason, she spends her days writing code and navigating the intricacies of the Internet. In fact, she's working on a new program that will revolutionize the tech industry, and when she attends a prominent seminar, word begins to spread. FBI agent Liam Scott discovers how brilliant Allison is and wants her to help hunt down a cyber criminal he's been after for two years. He invites her to tour the bureau's state-of-the-art cybercenter in Boston. Once she arrives, he thinks he can convince her to join the team. But Allison doesn't want to work for the government until Liam makes an offer she can't refuse: work for the FBI for one year, and they will expunge Jason's illustrious criminal record.

I think it's pretty unfair to rate a book that you really never read. It's easy to give up on a book but then leave the reviewing to someone else. I found Wired one of the better books I have read in awhile. So many of these books are totally predictable--this book was not. Give it a try. I sure enjoyed it.

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.
