Hacker Series #3
Software mogul Blake Landon has met his match in headstrong Erica Hathaway. While his controlling nature and her independent spirit continue to battle, Blake has no intention of letting her out of his life again.
Erica has given Blake her trust and her love, determined that they will conquer any challenges together. But when he demands more and tests the boundaries of her commitment, she is forced to face the dark desires he’s kept hidden.
As their bonds grow tighter, their enemies close in. With Erica’s start-up in danger, Blake’s frustration grows as he tries to protect her from those who would ruin her only to get to him. Can their relationship survive when Blake’s enemies cross the line and threaten more than her livelihood?
I have been a fan of the hacker series since Meredith Wild came out with Hardwired. I go back and forth on how I feel about Blake. One minute I think that he is unreasonably overbearing and controlling, the next I love him and their dynamic.
In this book Blake test Erica on how far she is willing to go with him. His actions toward Erica were so cruel at times that my heart aches for her. The way she gave herself to him even though she knew it wasn't what she wanted killed me. I can't imagine being in that kind of relationship. Erica has lost the one quality she had that I adored and that's her independence so BOO Blake.
Hopefully, in the next book, this will be resolved and Erica will again become the strong woman she was in the beginning. She sacrificed and worked too hard to be independent and successful, to just give it up, begging Blake to forgive her. Seriously, Meridith WTH are you doing to me?!
However, just when you think Blake and Erica's ride couldn't get any crazier... it does. I couldn't put this book down. With every page turn I was drawn in more and more. I can’t wait until the next installment!
