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.

Wired is yet another in the contemporary sports/romance category that I am really excited about. I first discovered this great mix with author Jaci Burton. These are becoming more plentiful and I love it. Leslie North puts forth a plot that is easy to follow, likable characters and straight up romance and sports. It is a perfect book for a beach read or to curl up with for a few evenings.
Rebecca Roberts is a competent and enjoyable narrator. It is a smooth and strong performance. I'll look for her work (along with that of Leslie North) in the future.
4 solid stars across all three categories
Warnings: some strong language and intimate situations
