    Excellent

    Excellent story with a major cliffhanger! This is just the first part of Hannah and Mason's story. Hannah by day works for an IT firm. At night she's a bit of a hacker. She's determined to make the company responsible for the death of her father and her sisters debilitating injuries and the lawyers who represent them pay. Mason is an FBI agent working in the cyber crimes unit. He's good at what he does but past mistakes have put him in the bosses bad graces. He's given a case no one thinks can be solved. He needs to find out exactly who Freedom Overdrive is and take him down. These two meeting and being attracted to each other never should have happened and when the truth comes out about their true identities everything could fall apart. Definitely a book I recommend

    Great romance

    Exploited is a fast-moving techno romance (is there such thing or did I just make up a genre….lol) that will keep you glued to the book. It is a page turner and you never know where this book will lead you and I loved it. I am going to say this right up front, I didn’t like Hannah. Did I feel bad for her, sure. What happened to her family was pretty crappy and I can totally get why that pushed her into hacking. But her relationship with Mason took the cake and when it was revealed why she was with him, I was a little upset. That’s when I became “Team Mason” and started cheering on his investigation of Freedom Overdrive. What bothered me also about her was that she didn’t have any friends, work or personal. She explained it as a lack of trust but I wonder, as I do with fictional characters, if her lack of friends was because she had no personal skills. The only “friends” that she has is her fellow online hackers. I liked Mason, even if he was the equivalent of a human stress ball. He made a mistake by sleeping with one of his fellow agents, who happened to be his superior, and things got a little, how do I phrase this, stressful at the office. He also has major issues with his parents. They are playing the blame game with him. When Mason’s brother, Dylan, was dying of brain cancer, he never got down to see him before he died. So, Mason’s mother and father blame his job and himself for not being there for Dylan. Which is pretty awful and those phone calls with his father just broke my heart. While I didn’t like Hannah, I did like the romance between them….even if Hannah originally went into it under false pretenses. Their romance gave me major feels. And the sex was hot. Burning hot!! The hacker plotline was very interesting and I can see the allure in it. I mean, Hannah got pulled into it by a friend because she was going to fail our of college. I am still not sure how she went from small time to big time and I am sure that they will explain it more in book 2. This book does not have a happy ending and none of the plot lines got wrapped up. I can’t wait to see where this story ends up in book 2.

    Slower paced than I expected.

    3.5* I was really intrigued by the premise of this book, it looked like it would be an interesting change of pace from the contemporary romance books I read. I've only read one other book by A. Meredith Walters, one that I absolutely adored, so I was excited when I was offered the opportunity to read and review this one. Exploited is suspenseful and mysterious, it's frustrating, and in the end it will leave you questioning everything you thought you might have figured out. I was hoping for a fast-paced, edge-of-your-seat, exciting cat-and-mouse type story. But instead, this was a much slower read than I expected. Hannah was a tough nut to crack. She wasn't very likeable, honestly. I never quite warmed up to her, and I think that kind of tainted my whole outlook on this book unfortunately. I'm hoping in the second book we'll see a different side of her. I really liked Mason't character, but felt zero chemistry between him and Hannah. I felt sorry for him, that he was so easily manipulated by her because he really just needed someone to love, and to be loved. I cried for him over his brother, and was mad on his behalf because of his parents. But for someone who is supposed to be such a killer agent he sure didn't prove it when it came to Hannah. I'm not sure what else needed to happen before he realized what was going on right under his nose. Although this book didn't quite live up to expectations I am invested enough that I am anxious for the second book. There's a lot more to explore with these characters, and of course the mystery that was left hanging. Hopefully all our questions will be answered!
