Publisher's Summary

Star quarterback Marcus Kingston lives and breathes football. He's trusted his abilities and instincts to get him this far, but an injury last season nearly ended his career. When his coaches want him to wear biofeedback technology to analyze his game, Marcus thinks the idea is ridiculous. Plus, the mousy scientist behind the project knows nothing about sports, and she quickly gets under his skin. But with another QB waiting on the sidelines, Marcus can either agree to participate, or be benched - permanently.
Scientist Clare Wynifred values intellect above most things. With her brain constantly working, she has little interest in her appearance and zero interest in sports. She never imagined her wearable tech being used to improve someone's game, but its success with the team could get her a military contract. Clare may be too late to save her brother, but her technology could save the lives of countless soldiers. She just has to make it work with the stubborn quarterback, and she'll be one step closer to her goal. Marcus and Clare butt heads at first, but their mutual attraction quickly grows. And yet, with everything to lose, it's easy to ignore that together they might be able to go the distance.

Story Left Me Hanging

If you could sum up Wired in three words, what would they be?

Good Sports Romance


What other book might you compare Wired to and why?

I might go across the pond and compare this book to Amy Daws book titled "Challenge". I really haven't read too many sports romances but I have listened to Ms. Daws book and what better challenge than to pit US football against UK soccer.


Which character – as performed by Rebecca Roberts – was your favorite?

It would have to be Clare. She's trying to make a difference in a sport that's more about men than women. And there's her passion to try and help the military. Clare wants to use her expertise for helping others which came from the loss of a loved one.


Any additional comments?

This was an enjoyable book that made my commute more pleasurable. Clare found something out about Marcus and than set out to help him overcome something that most of us take for granted. He of course was fighting the change that came down from up above tooth and nail.

The story seems as if these characters could actually exist. I could picture the story actually happening with no problem. It sounds like such a great idea. Maybe the higher ups in the NFL need to read/listen to this book.

I had no issues with Ms. Roberts in her narration other than when it came to the male characters. It was hard to come up with a picture of what Marcus looked like because of that. But in no way did that stop my enjoyment of the book. And it wouldn't stop me from listening to more books narrated by Ms. Roberts. I had to listen to the ending twice because it seemed like I was left hanging. Have already put book two in my wish list.

If you're a fan of sports romance, whether you read or listen, you may want to check out this book. Or even see what else this author has to offer. Ms. North grabbed my attention with the idea of a woman trying to fit into a man's world and actually making a mark. Marcus was a man that felt like he was losing control of his world but Clare was just showing him an option to harness it. For me, the romance was nice but I really liked the technology versus the sport connection. What a great way to go about finding a series and falling in love with its author.

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.

Football Drama

Footballer Marcus Kingston has sustained an injury that just might end his career. His team enlist the help of Clare Wynifred, a scientist, who knows nothing about football, but knows everything there is about biotechnology and how to analyze the information to improve an athlete’s game. Marcus wants nothing to do with the technology and certainly nothing to do with the quirky scientist tasked with helping him. Marcus thinks Clare’s just using him to further her career.

It’s amazing to me that author Leslie North could pack so much story into a 3 ½ hour audiobook! There’s nothing lacking in this book. There is drama, angst, and plenty of romance. Both Marcus and Clare are characters that you can’t help but like. They both have serious issues in their past that they need to resolve and you’re rooting for them to find happiness.

Rebecca Roberts narrates, it’s the first audiobook that I’ve listened to her read and she does a good job! Her delivery is a little stiff at times, but really, it’s a minor complaint. Rebecca does excel at voicing characters and I’d like to listen to another book with her as a narrator.
