Publisher's Summary

Determined to overcome a difficult past, Erica Hathaway learns early on how to make it on her own. Days after her college graduation, she finds herself face to face with a panel of investors who will make or break her fledgling startup. The only thing she didn't prepare for was going weak in the knees over an arrogant and gorgeous investor who's seemingly determined to derail her presentation.
Billionaire and rumored hacker Blake Landon has already made his fortune in software, and he's used to getting what he wants with very little resistance. Captivated by Erica's drive and unassuming beauty, he's wanted nothing more since she stepped into his boardroom.
Determined to win her over, he breaks down her defenses and fights for her trust, even if that means sacrificing a level of control to which he's grown accustomed. But when Blake uncovers a dark secret from Erica's past, he threatens not just her trust but the life she's fought so hard to create.

Goodbye 50 Shades! Didn't really like the narrator

Hardwired is the story of Erica Hathaway who is starting out in business and trying really hard to make a go of it. Into her life walks billionaire Blake Landon who already runs a very successful business and is used to control and getting what he wants.

I have to say that Erica is a strong willed heroine and goes for what she wants, but in some ways, Blake does try to mess things up for her because he wants total control.

There are some fabulous side characters which add to the story and help it along. The first book seems to pose questions that are as yet unanswered. The audio flows well and there wasn’t a gigantic cliff-hanger, but the story goes on for three more books.

There is a lot of talk about business in this audio which gives the book a sense of reality as Erica tries to get funding for her Clozpin online social media fashion website.

Erica pitches her proposal to a room full of investors hoping to have one of them invest in her company and help get it launched. Her interaction with Blake Landon in the meeting was interesting and you couldn’t help but notice the sparks between them. From then on Blake sets his sights on Erica and although he passes at the first meeting he busts his butt to try and make sure she makes it in the business world.

Once he sets his sights on her, you then see a dominant, controlling and the possessive side to him. Yummy!

Warning- if don't like hot sex scenes, a plot and two people who will fight to the death to be together then DON'T listen to this title.

- Nikita Savoy "Love never dies, just changes form~Nikita"


I was eagerly looking forward to this listen, saw the number of 5 star ratings climb and couldn't wait. But right from the start it just didn't hook me in, I couldn't picture the characters as very little character detail was given to describe them. Then, as the story progressed, I started to dislike the heroine because of her hot then cold attitude all the time towards the hero, her mood swings and her immaturity. I get that she had a strong personality but they never really talked.... it was just sex fixed everything.

College Grad/Entrepreneur Erica seeks funding from Investors and one of them is drop dead gorgeous billionaire Blake but he doesn't invest however he shows his interest in her. She held out til her "lust and greed" snapped at Chapter 5 (their first date) and it quickly developed from there. There are lots of conflicts, secrets, enemies that are slowly coming out of the shadows and the couple are constantly falling out which all doesn't bode well for their future.

I'm sure the sub plots will grow causing dramas and heartache but, IMO, this isn't as well written or have the depth as other 'similar' series like Crossfire, Fixed, Gabriel Emerson or 50 Shades. Told from Erica's POV by a narrator that sounded a bit young at times but Blake's voice was sexy.

Worth a credit? It was an ok listen and I won't moan about the credit but this series is in 5 parts and I didn't like it enough to want to use any more credits on it. Maybe if there's a sale I might be tempted.
