I feel I should mention that this book will set you back $8.99 which is ridiculous because it's a debut novel.

This story was all over the place although it did have a few good moments. Unfortunately the execution was lacking. The heroine came across as bipolar, her mood swings gave me whiplash, the hero was supposed to be controlling and possessive, unfortunately this was not the case. He was constantly walking around on egg shells because of the heroines fragile sanity!

I came across this one on facebook and read a few of the excerpts which peaked my interest greatly. It has a very familiar premise: Hot billionaire somewhat dominant guy, equally (yet unassumingly so) hot younger woman with a difficult and traumatic past.

If you are not a fan of some of the recent series with these kinds of characters this may not be the

I enjoyed reading the book. Many say it has similiarites with Fifty Shades of Grey, I disagree. Erica,the main character is not afraid to voice her opinion even when she is around Blake. I didn't feel she was submissive at all. Erica is very determined and stubborn especially around her baby-her business ventures. I thought the plot went very fast, I would've wanted to see more tension amongst the characters, but I guess all will be developed in part two of the series. Reading Hardwired reminded ...more
Amazon, how could you do this to me. Your recommendations have always been so good. I trusted you to give me good smut with a back story worth reading and this is what I got?

Our main characters, Erica and Blake stumble upon each other when Erica trips over her shoe while exiting a restaurant. She falls right into the arms of the enigmatic and handsome, dominating billionaire....Blake. (You thought I was going to say Christian didn't you?)

Let us begin by saying: we basically devoured Hardwired. There’s something about a tough-as-nails, though slightly damaged, female that we just can’t resist. Pair that with a smoking hot billionaire, and we’re hooked. Blake’s possessiveness and mystery only add to his sex appeal.

This novel moves at a good pace, keeping the reader involved and present in the story. It is incredibly well-written and the relationship between the characters unfolds in a natural way. Erica is right to guard her emot

This is me the entire time... sigh.

I kept searching any controlling streak in the male lead... I must have missed it?

And I was really concerned by the heroine personality... Schizo? Mood swings?

All in all, the blurb sounded appealing to me, but it fell short really quickly, I never connected with any of the characters, and the lack of environment description didn't help me getting into it. Side characters and plots were truly unnecessary.

Hardwired is the first book in the very popular Hacker series. Hardwired is told from the Ercia’s POV.

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.

Honestly, the thing I'm gonna remember most is that she shares a plate of calamari with two different friends on two different occasions. The hacker part was, surprisingly, the most convincing and interesting part; the fashion app isn't even used, the sex is repetitive and subpar (I really hate having to reread to figure out she just did the move I thought she did), and the billionaire boyfriend is a controlling cliche.

Throw in the damaged past, a shit ton of grabby guys, and family coincidence

Nu stiu cat de mult seamana cu Fifty Shades, nu mi s-a parut...
Dar este o carte interesanta despre iubire, lumea controversata si plina de neprevazut a mediului virtual, combinata cu acțiune si o atractie irezistibilă. Toate acestea oferă o lectura mai mult decat placuta!

Ich hatte tatsächlich für fünf Seiten ein relativ gutes Gefühl. Der Schreibstil war überraschend anspruchsvoll – nicht hochtrabend, aber doch deutlich besser als ich erwartet hätte. Erica wirkte auf den ersten Seiten wie eine selbstbewusst, engagierte junge Geschäftsfrau, die genau weiß, wo sie im Leben hinwill und die nötigen Schritte dafür geht. Haha, tja, und dann ging’s los: sie wird auf der Straße von einem Typen angerempelt und augenblicklich durchweicht ihr Schlüpper, weil der Kerl so unf ...more

Okay so when I saw this cover I was like ooh this looks like a dark or BDSM book, the cover is pretty mysterious and doesn't give much away.Anyways its none of those but it is very good. I need more especially with the way things were left at the end ooh can't wait for book 2.

Ich habe das Buch ab Seite 150 nur noch überflogen und haufenweise Seiten überspringen, in der Hoffnung, dass es IRGENDWO besser wird.
Aber nein, es ist eine Katastrophe. Ich werde diese Reihe nicht weiterlesen und widme meine Zeit lieber guten Büchern.
I have been hearing about this Hacker series for quite some time now, and have seen it compared to Fifty Shades.. I thought, why not give it a try? First of all, I don't think it needs to be compared to the other trilogy, as I did think that majority of it stood alone within its own story. Yes, there is a millionaire, but Blake is different then Christian. Not only does he have his own business's; but he has quite the past which includes rumors of him being a hacker at one time. He even almost w ...more

Hardwired by Meredith Wild is a love a story and so much more. The book is told in first person by Erica Hathaway; she is a fresh graduate from Harvard University, entrepreneur of her own Internet start-up fashion site–the company that she has poured her life into imagining and creating out of nothing. The company is her passion. She is alone in the world except for her mom’s best friend Maria and her two business partners, Allie and Sid.

Enter Blake Landon; he literally bumps into Erica
I devoured this book like it was candy. Blake is a hottie who is also a smartie, and that had me INSTANTLY hooked on his character. I see a lot of myself in Erica and I enjoy that she doesn't just give into Blake because he has charisma but because he puts effort into claiming her as his.
I've heard so many things about Meredith Wild and the "Hacker" series that it was a must for me to read it a.s.a.p. Being an international best seller author means so much professionally that you know the book is going to rock your world. Buuuuuut.. it did and it didn't.. mixed feelings about it.. I've only read the first book and maybe better things are to come for this one.

So, "Hardwired" is the first book from the series and tells us the story of Erica and Blake, two very different people tha

En la red es una novela erótica, primera parte de una pentalogía, que me ha gustado, que mantiene un ritmo que me ha tenido enganchada. Es una novela a la que habría puntuado de 4/5, que me ha gustado bastante dentro de todo lo que he leído de erótica pero que no llega a ser tan bueno como otras novelas.
Es una novela que, aunque no cuenta con una trama muy elaborada, atrapa al lector desde la primera página. Lo que más le falla es el hecho de no tener esa trama tan elaborada que tienen otras nov

Awsome book! Love Meredith's writing style. From the first chapter you get captivated by Erica and Blake's story. I didn't want the book to end. So happy that there will be many more books in this series to follow. Looking forward to rrading anything Meredith writes. This book is a must read!

The Hacker Series has got to be one of my new favorite series!

Hardwired was very, very good. I could not put it down, and I was completely engrossed in it from page 1. This book presents a set of characters that each bring along their own set of "complications". Hardwired follows Erica Hathaway as she enters a new phase in her life pursuing her startup website right after graduating college. Then, through an intriguing turn of events she meets Blake Landon, a wealthy technologically savvy man wh

Lo malo fue que sigo confirmando que los libros "eroticos" no son para mí... En fin... Ni el dinero que gasté. El libro no es malo, y las partes hot que alcance a leer no son para nada malas pero el problema es que no me enganchó y cuando un libro no te atrapa no es buen signo. Llegué al capítulo 9.

I wanted to read this one after a friend told me that she could not put it down .. and how right she was. This book pulled me in immediately and I could not stop reading. The only time I stepped away from my kindle was when my eyes refused to stay open any longer, well it was one o'clock in the morning! Lol.

I have no idea how this book and book two so far (I'm half way through), have rated so high. I'd rate it a 2.5 if I could. No way is it a five star and I'm annoyed that people are comparing it to 50 Shades...not even close. It's all in the writing, or lack there of. Little to no character descriptions/development. I still do not have a good picture of what Erica & Blake even look like, besides him being gorgeous???? His dominance, but reluctant to use it on her, is just not dominant, it port ...more

Sweet, hot n smart romance between a h who is building her own startup biz and a venture capitalist. Love both the h and H though wish the h wasn't so stubborn in the last quarter of book. The H says ILY first which I liked.There is a HFN so this works as a standalone still there is stuff happening business wise that continues in bk 2 so moving onto that.

No le tenía mucha fe a este libro, pero me sorprendió gratamente.
Si, tiene el típico cliché de los libros románticos, la chica que se enamora del millonario, pero la vida de Erica es tan rica y problemática que hace que la trama sea muy interesante y el plot twist no me lo esperaba, creo que nunca me sorprendí tanto con un libro romántico.
Si les gustan los libros románticos tienen que leer la saga Hacker si o si, empecé este libro la semana pasada y ya estoy a punto de terminar el cuarto libro

Erica is determined to keep hotshot billionaire Blake Landon at arms length because you don't mix business with pleasure and she's determined to get the backing for her business without making it more complicated, but Blake has other ideas and won't leave her alone.

The story was evenly paced and hot hot hot.

Ich weiß nicht so genau, was ich davon halten soll. Es war zu viel Sex, die angeblichen Gefühle haben sich für meinen Geschmack zu schnell aufgebaut, ohne besonderen Grund. Deshalb 3,5 Sterne, es ließ sich gut und flüssig lesen.

I read anywhere from 10-15 books a month, and I just love when I come across a book that inspires me to make quote pics! I made 2 for this one. Blake Landon and Erica Hathaway's story is one everyone needs to read. The sex is beyond hot, the romance is panty melting, and the characters are likable. I give 4.5 stars to Hardwired.

Blake and Erica first meet as Erica is leaving a restaurant that Blake is entering, and they collide(literally). They meet a second time when Erica meets with potential i

First off I have to say that I did truly love this book and I need the second one like ASAP! See I have this thing for effed up characters that find each other and fight hard to stay away from each other even though they know they are going to end up with each other. To me I have to laugh because the chemistry is so off the hook that it comes off of the pages in droves. Lord Meredith Wild you have out done yourself with this one and I can't wait to see what happens in the second book.
