    Zero Hour

    Zero Hour is a thrilling read full of suspense, thrills and romance. The characters draw readers in with their strong, compelling presence and the fast paced story keeps the anticipation building throughout. The story is a bit misleading because you expect it to be more sedate than it is because of the stereo typing belief that hackers are all about their computers. That is definitely not the case here as readers find out almost right off the bat. The hero and heroine, Roarke and Wren are two characters that demand attention and captivate readers with their charismatic personalities that are somewhat expected but are so much more than expected that I just had to get to know them better. Which leads me to their romance, it is full of emotional turmoil which adds lots of depth and tugs at heartstrings. Now, we get to the thrilling suspense of the story, it is not only fast paced, I have to agree with the “Fast & Furious” feel of the story. It has lots of twists and unexpected surprises that really keeps readers on the edge of their seats as the anticipation builds throughout. Along with the question of whether these characters will let revenge rule their lives, will revenge be enough, will it come between the growing relationship and even the question of whether they will survive? Zero Hour is the first book that I have read by Megan Erickson and what a great one to start out with. I was glued to the pages from beginning to end and found the world exciting and daring and the author brought it vivid life, so I am looking forward to not only reading the next book in the Wired & Dangerous series but more books by Megan Erickson.

    Slower pace for me

    I have mixed feelings about this book and it’s made writing this review challenging because I can’t quite find the right words for what I want to say. First off, this is my first book by Megan Erickson and I enjoyed her writing. The pace of the story was pretty good and I was interested in how the team was planning on taking down the Saltners. This motley crew of hackers all had their reasons for getting involved, but only some of them are revealed in this book. It’s obvious all of them have lived a rough life so far and they all have their demons. I’m certainly intrigued by their stories, especially the stoic Jock. I also really liked how tough but real Wren is as a heroine. She has no problem standing up for herself and her compassion for others is so beautiful. Wren has her own reasons for getting involved in Roarke’s crew she’s willing to put herself at extreme risk to help. Roarke might get frustrated by Wren but he also seems to enjoy her inner strength. But a lot has changed in the years since Roarke last saw Wren and he struggles to reconcile this new Wren with the idealized version he’s only seen through a computer screen. This causes some problems between them but with the mission on the line they can’t afford to let personal problem get in the way. All that being said, I found myself struggling to keep reading and my connection to the story just wasn’t there. I had to put the book down a few times and reading other things. I can’t really pinpoint one single thing that wasn’t working for me so I think overall, I just wasn’t engaged in the story. However, I would say this was probably more me then the writing or the plot. I do intend to read the next in the series because I’d like to see more by Megan Erickson and I want to know more about the other characters.

    Gritty, edgy hacker romance!

    Megan Erickson has put together a motley crew of hackers in the first story in her new Wired and Dangerous series. In Zero Hour, the crew are out to avenge the killing of one of their own. Roarke's brother Flynn died because he discovered a programming error in some soon to be released software, an error put in on purpose to enable it to be sold on the black market. Roarke is ready to avenge his death, but he needs help. What he doesn't want is to involve Wren, his best friend Erick's sister. But Wren has caught the eye of a man whose family is responsible for the killing. Plus, Wren has her own plan to avenge her friend's kidnapping and abuse at the hands of a shady porn ring, with whom the family is also involved. Wren and Roarke were friends once as kids, but they are all grown up now, and the attraction between them is fierce. Using Wren as 'bait' goes against Roarke's every instincts but will it be worth it to extract the revenge they both seek? As the first in the series, a fair amount of page time is used to introduce the characters (there are several) who make up the team that Roarke will use to take down the man who killed his brother. They are quite an interesting and diverse group with their own unique hacking (and other) skills and I really enjoyed getting to know the team. The romance between Roarke and Wren is one they fight from the start but leads to several intense and sexy scenes. There's a darker, gritty edge to the story than the romances I've read from the author before, definitely suited to the story which has it's share of drama, action and intensity. The tension stays strong throughout the story and though we get a happy ending for the couple, and a conclusion to the main story plot, there are some leftover threads to be picked up in the next book. I'm looking forward to reading more in the series.
