My Take on the Book :
The book’s blurb makes the story seem interesting, but that’s not really what you get with this book. I feel duped.
Let's Talk About the Girl...
Allison Trent broke the law a few times but just with the purpose of helping others. So working for the FBI or any other government agency is not something on her wish list, but the excitement to do something that everyone thinks she’s incapable of is enough of a motive to sign a contract to work for the FBI cyber unit.
Let's Talk About the Guy...
Liam Scott, a FBI agent, was working on a case that was going pretty well until someone leaked information about the case that could jeopardize the case as well as the agent’s credibility. The FBI cyber task force can’t find the person responsible for the leak so he needs the best damn hacker to do it.
Let's Talk about the Story...
This was my first book by Julie Garwood. I can’t say that I’m going to try another.
Something was certainly off.
Allison’s life is not an easy one. She and her sister lived with her aunt and uncle after their parents died. The problem was that their aunt and uncle hated them both and only cared about their son Will, who spent most of the time finding ways to end up in prison. And guess who had to work as a model to pay the lawyer’s bills? Allison that’s who. And that’s where Liam took a giant importance in her life. He gave her a feeling of protection and affection that she wasn’t used to. Allison was a good character: she’s not the strongest woman you will meet because she’s constantly doing what her relatives ask of her but she’s pretty confident in her capabilities.
Liam is not new. Bad boy that looks like a god when wearing a suit. Almost everything he does is confidential so we barely know him to be honest. We know he likes women but not to have a serious relationship seeing as he’s traveling for work most of the time. We don’t know his family and we only know his friends because they’re also his partners. Liam for all his protective man in charge attitude still came off somewhat wooden. I never felt like his personality was too delved into, he was always on the go without the reader having time to really get to know him, let alone Allison.
Regarding the characters, there was a lot of things that I think were unnecessary. There’s a lot of rambling about characters that aren’t that relevant for the book while important characters like Liam are barely developed. He spent most of the book away at work, spending weeks and weeks without saying a word to Allison and we know nothing about him. After I finished the book I can’t even say for sure if they had an extended conversation. They did have moments of chemistry but their interactions were such hit and runs, nothing ever felt flushed out. The beat in their relationship just felt off.
Allison and Liam were two very analytical characters and that could be why they were harder to connect with as their thought patterns were pretty decisive but it also had them coming off a bit stiff. The over abundance of villains and obstacles thrown in their way was too much and clogged up the story.
Even though I felt the heroine was too sweet, the hero was a bit cardboard cut-out, and one too many bad guys running around, Garwood’s writing still has a readability that can’t be denied.
