"Remember this moment, because it's real and human. No computers or wires or code. Just me and you."

Megan Erickson is an auto-buy author for me. She writes it. I read it. No questions asked. Any genre. Any pairing.

Unfortunately, Zero Hour didn't meet my expectations. While enjoyable, it missed the mark in certain areas.

When I first heard Megan Erickson announce this series, I was BEYOND excited! She mentioned it was inspired by the movie Hackers and well, I freaking LOVE that m

First things first... Let me start out by saying, that this book is an MF book. As far as I know the first two books will be MF. After that there might be MM, but I am not completely sure.

I myself read both, and since Megan Erickson has become a favorite author of mine with her MM books, I figured I would give this MF one a shot too.... Also, it's about hackers and I think hackers are so freaking SEXY !!!!! For some reason code really turns me on :P

Favorite Quote: “Those fingers can penetrate a fire wall and make me come.” She opened her eyes and grinned a filthy smile. “Got me a man who can do both.”

Start of a new series about hackers, and I’m excited. I really enjoyed this book. It has a very grumpy hero and he loves his best friend’s little sister, which pisses him off even more. Oh Roarke, I love you so much.

Roarke’s brother’s death was ruled a suicide, but he knows he was murdered. His brother wanted out of the hacker lifestyle and to
I’m a fan of Megan’s words, so I’m 100% here for anything she writes.

I really liked Wren and Roarke. They’re both quite smart and loyal and I loved their history of always wanting the other. The additional people in the crew were fantastic and I’m really hoping we get more of all of them. Marisol especially.

Plot wise it was interesting. I was a bit wary about the hacking aspect, but it wasn’t hard to follow. The story pretty much starts with a bang and doesn’t let go until the end. And while I

Who doesn't love a hacker!!
Not me, that's for sure.

Megan Erickson is one of my favorite. Her MF books are always a joy to read because her female leads are always badass, strong, smart! I just love it!


So, here we have, Roarke, hacker and sort of an anti-sociable. He formed a team to avenge the death of his brother, Finn.
His best friend sister's, Wren, wants in on it because she wants revenge for Finn too but she have one of her own as well.

Except, Roarke haven't seen Wren in 10 years and for him

This is an extraordinary book.. Not only is there a really well thought out story but within that story there’s an arc set up for at least three books! I have lots more to say but it has to wait ..... full review coming soon.

OMG, how did release day get here so fast for Zero Hour?!?! Okay, so it’s time for me to explain why this book was extraordinary for me.

First, the story was edge of your seat anticipatory. Both the suspense tension and the romantic tension were spot on. I also found it twis
I don't know about you, but some of my favourite authors are the ones who have a particular genre or style and tend to stick with it. Sure, there's always the risk of one day waking up bored with it all, but often it's easy and delightful to come back to what you love and get exactly what you want out of a story.

Then there are those authors who break out of their niche and try something new every so often. Sometimes it works; and sometimes you can only applaud the effort and the bravery in devia

This was awesome! I loved the build to the romance and the suspense was captivating. I was exciting while and on the edge of my seat!

Wren and Roark were fantastic characters. I liked that push and pull they had on one another. A bit of animosity mixed with simmering chemistry. I liked learning their history and I really enjoyed watching their relationship develop in the midst of their mission and all the drama that was going on. Both Wren and Roark had their own motivations for what they were do

I'm trash when it comes to familial and friendship bonds, and this book was overflowing with that. This book follows a badass group of hackers, specifically Roarke and Wren. Roarke is on a mission to avenge his brothers death and he puts together this band of misfits to get it done. He's thrown by surprise when his best friend's sister joins the team for her own reasons.

I adored both Wren and Roarke. Roarke was protective and a bit broody, and most importantly, he was never afraid to admit when
‘Zero Hour’ spoke directly to the geek in me. I blank out at many things technical, so hackers (whether they be black/white hats) written as heroes/heroines of romances are relatively new in this genre but so welcome.

I love the lingo, the geek side of things, the stuff that the deep, dark web is made of, most probably because I’ve never been able to get my mind around it. That Megan Erickson has jumped wholly on this subject has made me more than moist with excitement, with the underlying class

Anyone who knows me knows that Hacker books are my jam. There is something about them that I love. The suspense, the action and the drama. This book had that in spades and oh yeah let's not forget the blistering chemistry between Wren and Roarke. I loved these two together and could not get enough!

When Roarke Brennan assembles a crew of brilliant hackers to avenge the murder of his younger brother, it reunites him with Wren Lee, his lifelong crush and bestfriend's younger sister. But with a deca

Megan Erickson inaugure ici une série prometteuse qui allie deux mondes assez différents mais qui se révèlent fonctionner assez bien ensemble. Elle a l’habitude parler du monde des geeks, hackers et joueurs de jeux vidéos. Elle choisit ici de construire une série de romantic suspenses qui pour une fois ne fonctionne pas autour de policiers ou militaires, mais de geeks. je vous rassure, ils sont aussi sexy que nos autres héros !

C’est un peu le chef du petit groupe que nous allons suivre, Roarke.

I was fond of the concept, but the plot focused almost entirely on only one aspect of the revenge plot, and a kind of contrived aspect at that. (Wren fake-dating the mark's son.) I wanted to like Wren and Roarke, but I also wanted some mf-ing hacking and sneaking!

But I gave up when I did because Roarke started punching the wall right next to Wren's head *immediately* after she escaped from a rapist and then tried to pull the "but it's just because I care so much about you" line. I don'

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

Rating and review removed.

Is there a more perfect combination than hackers, romance, suspense and Megan Erickson? I don’t think so. I’ll admit, I was teensy bit nervous going into Zero Hour, and that’s mostly because even though I love romantic suspense, I haven’t had the best luck with the books that I have tried. I had nothing to worry about though because Megan Erickson is good at what she does, and I can trust her to write anything at this point.

I love books and series that have a solid team and in Zero Hour, we get

Review originally published at Goldilox and the Three Weres and based on a copy provided by the publisher.

Zero Hour has all of the action and excitement I love in a romantic suspense series. But it's also a little bit different than most of the ones I've read since the hackers are kind of an ad hoc group, rather than a full time team. They all have some shared history, though much of it's just allusion at this point. I wondered at times if this is a spin off from a previous series that introduce

I really enjoyed this fun, sexy, exciting romantic suspense story! The author is a favorite of mine, but this is a new genre for her. I loved her take on this ensemble cast of hackers.

Roarke Brennan is a great hacker. It's how he makes most of his money, unbeknownst to the government, of course. He's been doing it since he was a teenager, and he taught his younger brother, Flynn, how to do it as well. But, Flynn decided to "go straight", and got a job with a defense contractor.

This does not affect my opinion of the book or the content of my review.This new series, Wired & Dangerous , sounded technical, full of suspense and with a bit of romance, so I decided I had to try it.

It’s safe to say that this new series from Megan Erickson has me wired and is very dangerous to my Kindle.

I’m sorry about the puns. But I’m NOT sorry about recommending you get to know Roarke, Wren and the rag-tag crew of white-ish-hat hackers that feature in Zero Hour. For starters, these people skirt the line of good and, err, not-so-good (Dade, guys

This is going to sound like such a backhanded compliment BUT I read Zero Hour while going through a particularly difficult struggle with my anxiety to say it ratcheted up the palpitations would be an understatement.

When I got this, I knew I’d like it because it’s Megan Erickson. She’s just a great storyteller, you know? What I didn’t expect was just how much I’d love it. And I’m not surprised so much as really fucking pleased.

Zero Hour has this exciting thriller/mystery/revenge plot that kept me on the edge of my seat. It was difficult to put down as each chapter lead into the next, leaving me wondering what the heck was going to happen to my heroes, how they were going to get
3.5 stars for this suspenseful book filled with awesome characters.
My Zero Hour inspired nail art!

I, oftentimes, find the first book in a suspense series arc to be a bit slow as the author builds up the drama for the remainder of the series. This book felt a bit long even though it really wasn't. There was a lot going on with backstories, character introductions, plot twists, suppositions, back and forth between the MCs and then things wrapped up kind of quickly in the end. Overall, I felt it wa

She lives in Pennsylvania with her very own nerdy husband and two kids. Although rather fun-sized, she's been told she has a full-sized
