Description

A beautiful computer genius and a bad-boy FBI agent must collaborate—in more ways than one—in the sexy, suspenseful new novel from #1 New York Times bestselling author Julie Garwood.

Allison Trent has always had a special talent for computers. When she’s not cleaning up after her troublemaker younger brother, Jason, she spends her days writing code and navigating the intricacies of the Internet. In fact, she’s working on a new program that will revolutionize the tech industry, and when she attends a prominent seminar, word begins to spread.

FBI agent Liam Scott discovers how brilliant Allison is and wants her to help hunt down a cyber criminal he’s been after for two years. He invites her to tour the bureau’s state-of-the-art cybercenter in Boston. Once she arrives, he thinks he can convince her to join the team.

But Allison doesn’t want to work for the government—until Liam makes an offer she can’t refuse: work for the FBI for one year, and they will expunge Jason’s illustrious criminal record.

Allison tries to deny her growing attraction to Liam, but just before her year in the FBI is over, she discovers someone has stolen the computer program she developed. Now she needs Liam’s help in tracking down the thief. And as they begin to close in on the culprit, they also begin to give in to each other...

    I love everything Julie Garwood writes and when she comes out with a new book, I can't wait to read it. I enjoy contemporary romance with some mystery thrown in and that is exactly what you get with this book. While stories about FBI agents is one of my favorites, I have to admit, this one was disappointing. Something was off and I had a difficult time connecting to the story and the characters. Liam Scott works for the FBI and he asks Allison Trent to help him with one of the cases he is currently working on. Allison is in her last year of college and is talented with computers and very good at hacking. She is a nerd and is content to spend all her time working on her computer. Liam Scott is a macho, sexy FBI agent who has worked for the agency for years. He loves his job but it keeps him busy as he travels the world taking care of problems. Liam knows he shouldn't be attracted to Allison but can't seem to help himself. He is upfront with Allison and let's her know he would like to get together with her but isn't interested in a relationship. However, Liam confuses Allison when he wants to continue to spend time with her. Liam is older and hardened and is the opposite of Allison. He is attracted to Alison's youth, beauty, innocence and intelligence. He knows he should stay away from her, but he finds himself wanting more. Allison is not experienced in relationships and she doesn't want to fall for Liam but can't control how she feels. Allison is open and honest person and she does not play games. She is attracted to Liam and agrees to have sex with him but finds herself falling for him. She just isn't a one night stand type of girl. Liam is experienced and mature and Allison feels silly and young next to him. What she doesn't realize, is her innocence is what attracts Liam. Allison is sweet and it is easy to like her. I had a harder time with Liam. It bothered me that Liam acted superior and didn't share his feeling or information about the case with Allison. This story has suspense, intriguing characters, interesting secondary characters and there is a lot chemistry between Liam and Allison. Thanks to the author for providing a copy of this book vIa Cocktails and Books and Netgalley. The opinions expressed are my own.

    I waited so long for this book and I am very disappointed. I have read every book you have written and while I was in school I waited patiently until spring break to read your latest. This, I am sorry to say, was by far the worst.

    I spent $13 on this story and it was complete crap. I resorted to skimming the dialogue about half way through. The fawning, needy female role was ridiculous. Her character had such potential and it was totally wasted. The male lead was weak and his dialogue sucked. Save your money.

    This had to be one of the worst novels I have read. It was disjointed with no story line to speak of. I won't waste my money or my time on another Julie Garwood book.

    Need to read this again I finished the book within the 24 hrs after I bought it. I was so excited to read a new Julie Garwood that I probably skip something. It was not as engrossing as her old works, like the prize, the gift, guardian angel or her recent work like hotshot and sweet talk but it works for me.
