In Hardpressed, the highly anticipated second book of the Hacker Series that began with Hardwired, Blake and Erica face threats that put both their love and their lives on the line.
Despite Blake Landon’s controlling ways, the young and wealthy hacker finally won the trust of the woman he loves. Internet entrepreneur Erica Hathaway broke down the walls that kept her from opening her heart and her business to Blake.
Ready to start this new chapter in her life, Erica is determined not to let anything come between them, even if that means giving Blake back some of the control he craves in and out of the bedroom.
But when demons from her past threaten their future, Erica makes a decision that could change their lives forever.
“Mine. You’re mine. Just like this. Your body, your heart. Every part of you.”
Over the past year since being totally obsessed with Indie Romance I’ve repeatedly fell in love with the tattooed biker, the bad boy musician, the possessive athlete and of course the damaged millionaire. Never have I ever come across a sharp, billionaire techie until I’ve read this series. This is one of the best things that made it standout for me.
Who would have ever thought a hacker like Blake could ever compete with all my other book boyfriends? Sure enough, Blake meets all the swoon worthy criteria for me to add him to my very short list. He is this extremely intelligent, possessive, compulsive , over protective, attractive and oh so sexy man in Erica’s life.
Erica is just as amazing as Blake. For someone who has gone through something so traumatizing early on it does not weaken her but makes her stronger. I loved how she was able to rise above it all and become her own person.
In this book, she has two very domineering men in her life wanting so much from her. While it would have been so easy on her to relinquish all control and make her life so much easier , she stands her ground and instead demands her independence.
I thought both books were easy reads – stories that you can tackle over a quiet weekend. What I loved most about it was the outstanding character development most especially on Erica’s part. The romance and passion between our main characters was spot-on fantastic. Don’t let me forget to mention the countless “OMG, that did not just happen! ” twist in turns that made my head spin. There is so much to love about both books!
If you are looking for a all-new extraordinary type of book boyfriend backed by a distinctive story than you definitely can not go wrong with this book. I for one, can not wait to see what happens next in this amazing series.
Book 1: Hardwired
Determined to overcome a difficult past, Erica Hathaway learns early on 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 seems 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. Captivated by Erica’s drive and unassuming beauty, he’s wanted nothing more than to possess her since she stepped into his boardroom. Determined to win her over, he breaks down her defenses and fights for her trust, even if it means sacrificing a level of control he’s grown accustomed to.
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.
