Hardwired (Hacker #1) by Meredith Wild

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.

Erica is a single girl trying to launch her on-line fashion website. < ---- completely me. Fun fact, I have a fashion blog. But I digress. She just graduated from Harvard and now she wants to focus and expand her site, but she needs investors. She snags a meeting with potential investors and pitches the idea.

Blake happens to be one of the investors.
We all know where this is going and …
Things I totally got…
- Single girl struggling Check < - Love a damsel
- Billionaire with control issues with a dominate personality Check < --- Um… hello, my perfect guy
- Sex and lots of it Check
I liked the beginning. I like a struggling Heroine. Yes she graduated from an Ivy League college, but she isn’t super rich and she is going after her dream. I admire her for that. She’s sassy and has a take-no-prisoner attitude.  She’s super focused on her goal that she doesn’t want or have time for a relationship.

Blake is instantly attracted to Erica and he wants her. And he always gets what he wants. He likes to be in control and he has means to back it up. He’s super rich, successful and very powerful. I really liked Blake. I liked how caring and thoughtful he was. He always thinks of Erica and he doesn’t play games. He is also a bit mysterious. There’s something about his background and it kind of pulls you in.

Are you always this persistent?

Only when I see something I want

He has this crazy confidence that just makes you drool over him.
Erica is a bit flighty. It will make you pull your hair out, just a tiny bit. But, it adds plenty of tension and angst to the read. She doesn’t fully trust Blake because he is a play boy and she also doesn’t want to lose herself by being attached to a man.  Erica also has a past and Blake tries to break down her walls. It adds more drama and some mild tension.

Erica, one horrible experience doesn’t define you.

There are plenty of twists and turns towards the ending and you will be panting for more!
