"A beautiful computer hacker and a bad-boy FBI agent must collaborate--in more ways than one--in the sizzling new novel from #1 New York Timesbestselling author Julie Garwood. Allison Trent doesn't look like a hacker. In fact, when she's not in college working on her degree, she models on the side. But behind her gorgeous face is a brilliant mind for computers and her real love is writing--and hacking--code. Her dream is to write a new security program that could revolutionize the tech industry. Hotshot FBI agent Liam Scott has a problem: a leak deep within his own department. He needs the skills of a top-notch hacker to work on a highly sensitive project: to secretly break into the FBI servers and find out who the traitor is. But he can't use one of his own. He finds the perfect candidate in Allison. Only, there's one problem--she wants nothing to do with his job and turns him down flat. What Liam doesn't know is that Allison is hiding secrets that she doesn't want the FBI to uncover. But Liam will do nearly anything to persuade her to join his team, even break a few rules if that's what it takes. A temptation that could put his job--and both of their futures--on the line.."-- Provided by publisher.

Enjoyed the story of the computer geek with a developing romance with the FBI agent. It works well. I just found it annoying how "Allison" just kept getting sucked in with her cousin, aunt and uncle. For being such an intelligent young lady she should have had more common sense on her personal safety. She took too many chances on her own that always needed rescuing. Dah.

I haven't read a romance novel in awhile and I enjoyed this book. I liked the story of the computer whiz, hacking, and the hot FBI agent. This might be a predictable romance novel but it was a fun read!

annoying Harlequin type romance. the heroine takes blame for some ethical hacking to redress wrongs that the FBI could not trace. Torrid predictable sex scenes aimed at a reading public with which I have not identified since I was 16 years old.

I gave this book only 3 1/2 stars as I would rate all other fiction. HOWEVER, if you greatly enjoy books of the heroine rescued by fantasied superhero man with lots of steamy, sometimes graphic sex, this book would rate way higher. This is my first Julie Garwood book and the plot involving gifted computer tech people gave it an interesting slant. When I searched her other books and found that they were formulaic, even to the point that all the heroines had a tragic, abused childhood, I declined to check any more out.

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.
