Book Review - Wired by Julie Garwood

Amazon USA Amazon UK Goodreads

Review by Suze

Allison is great with computers. She's smart and she's beautiful, but her family doesn't appreciate her. They want her money and they keep asking her to help her cousin out of trouble. When Liam, an FBI agent, asks her to work for them she wants to refuse, but because of family matters she doesn't have a choice. She gives a year of her life for someone who doesn't seem to care, but working for the FBI isn't as bad as she thought it would be. Liam is attractive and kind and when she needs his help he's there for her. Will Allison actually finally find her freedom, while she thought she'd given it up?

Wired is a terrific romantic story. I love smart heroines and Allison has a good head on her shoulders. She's brilliant and that's something I liked very much. She's also much too kind, but she slowly learns to stand up for herself. Liam has a positive influence on her. There are plenty of sparks between them, but they also connect on a deeper level, because they're both really clever. I liked their chemistry and their meaningful conversations. They're amazing together and I couldn't wait to find out if Allison would find her happily ever after after all the difficulties she had to deal with.

Julie Garwood has written an intriguing story about fraud, corrupt family members and complicated computer programming. I was easily charmed by her nicely flowing writing style and gorgeous characters. Wired is an entertaining story with an interesting intelligent theme. It intrigued me from the start and I liked the originality of the main characters and their skills. It's a fabulous dynamic and charismatic story.

Advice

If you like original romantic stories, Wired is a great choice. It's part of the Buchanan-Renard series, but can easily be read as a standalone.
