DNF at 50%

While the plot held some appeal, the dialogue and dynamic between the heroine and her bodyguard read like KA and I am not about living that life.

Normally I allow myself to rate books I DNF as long as I make it to the halfway point but I know my issues with this are due to a sensitivity (if not outright allergy) to this style of character and relationship, so I am withholding my stars.

I really liked Fiona and Jock. A girl in trouble, and a guy assigned to protect her, fall for each other. It's very much typical for the genre. Its a quick read with just the right amount of heat to make it perfect for a beach bag.

I NEED a man like Jock in my life!!

Fiona has been on the run for 10 years. After being kidnapped and held as a sexual captive, force-fed drugs for her compliance, she can't help but continue to live her life on edge since she escaped. Ten years of being alone, making no lasting connections, and trusting no one. Lucky for her, she had one true friend that has always had her back, even if she didn't know it. Through this friend, she meets her new protector, Jock, and for the first time in 10 y

I was ready to sort of not pursue the issue relentlessly. At the end of the day I do understand the differences between what Santino Hassell did and what Mergan Erickson participated in.

But no. Erickson had to go and prove every single thing said about her to be true. Double-faced, coward, unprofessional bully that she is.

She has deleted every and all mention of the Santino Hassell exposure from her Facebook. Even if her fauxpology is still up in her website, it's almost impossible to get to it

GAH!!! Darkest Night had all the things I love in a romantic suspense novel and more. I absolutely loved Zero Hour but honestly loved Darkest Night more. I loveeed being back in their world and Jock and Fiona were amazing. I loved their chemistry and banter and fell head over heels over Jock's protectiveness.

Anyone who knows me knows that hacker stories ARE MY JAM. And if there are stoic, broody and growly hackers? OMG YES PLEASE!! I absolutely loved Jock. He was strong, sexy and had a geart of

I thought I would like Jock more...
I liked him but broody, silent and completely closed off doesn't do it as much as before I guess...

I loved Fiona though! She was fierce and vulnerable. She was adorable. And her and Jock were very hot!


The story take us back to the first book and the world of hacker and clandestine underground sex trafficking.
Someone want to hurt Fiona and Jock is here to prevent that. Until everything becomes more personal!

It was good but I was more into the first book! Wrenn.

This is the second part in the series and it can be read as a standalone. Mostly. I didn't read the first book but I was able to get the hang of what was going on and what happened to the other couple in the previous book.

Fiona has been running from the people who abused and violated her ten years ago. She is always on the run and that has become her new normal. They don't leave her alone and keep reminding her what would happen if s

I received an ARC from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

When approached with the idea to review this book, I hesitated because I don't normally pick up romantic suspense. I know. It's strange but I choose actively not to read them because I felt that plots can be too complicated for my brain to follow especially when I am a guilty reader who tends to skim pages. If I skimmed too much, I may miss an important part of the plot that would take the book from a thr

I had read the other book in this series and was curious, so I jumped in without reading the synopsis.

I liked Fiona and Jock. They’re both really good people with really shitty pasts and I enjoyed how the found something in each other. Their chemistry was good and believable. And of course it was fun to have the entire dynamic of the full cast together.

Plot wise it was fairly fast moving. I did feel like I was dropped into the middle of the story again, but there was a refresher event

Not as good as book one. Maybe a little too predictable with an over the top alpha hero?

Still romancy and likable characters. Review to come :)

Wooo! Do I love myself a sexy bodyguard novel, or what?! Not only did we get a super hunky bodyguard with Jock, but also Fiona is a kickass female who I totally LOVED!

This is the second novel in the Wired & Dangerous series, and I gotta say that I enjoyed this one a lot more then the first! While the first book was focusing on building up thew programmer world that they live in for us, this one was able to focus on more of the story and characters which I really enjoyed!

I think hackers will be a really important factor in the world going forward. So this genre is a natural choice, with my nerd side loving technical aspects.  In the previous book, Zero Hour, I felt the characters needed more development and some of the common sense was lacking. But I attributed this to a large project b

As a bodyguard, Jock Bosh has only one job, keep Fiona Madden safe from the bastard responsible for ruining her life. Having spent the past decade on the run, Fiona’s greatest weapon against the men out to destroy her is her survival, but when Jock puts himself in the line of fire, Fiona realizes that there is more at stake than just her life.

Darkest Night is full of strong, compelling characters and Fiona and Jock grab reader’s attention and keep them glued to the book as their story unfolds. T

I was given this book for an honest review by Wicked Reads.

Jock is very good at his job. He's good at it because he can detach himself and he has no personal attachments himself. When he takes on the job of protecting Fiona, he doesn't expect to feel so protective or attracted to her. It makes his job more difficult because he can't decided if a relationship with him is a g

I FLEW through this book. This series reads fast! I love the suspense and mystery to this series. I definitely think I enjoyed this story more than the previous - which means the series is just getting better and better!!!
Jock was something else... Let me tell you. I still adore Marisol - she's hilarious!
Another amazing installment into this series! I really do need to read more of Megan's work after flying through these 2!
There has been drama. There have been words (some very virulent ones) that have been flung around. I’m sort of aware of the drama that has surrounded Megan Erickson in the past few months, but not having any involvement in the debate that had ignited the entire community (and pretty much blew up over the course of a few days) means that I’m still kind of bewildered over the whole thing.

But that really isn’t a disclaimer on my part in any case. I’ve been graciously handed an ARC and that’s what

This was the first book I've read by Megan Erickson and I hate to say it, but I wasn't impressed. I felt there was no character development. They were boring and stale. Darkest Night is the second book in The Wired and Dangerous series and I have absolutely no desire to go back and read the first book (Zero Hour) or the next book (Final Day) when it comes out.

I was bored with this book and the writing. I didn't feel ANY connection between these two characters. Jock/Jamison/J was a robot. Even af

Fiona and Jock’s story was everything that I wanted and more.

We met and heard about these characters in the past book, I had no idea this was the way Megan Erickson was going to pair them up but I loved it! Jock was such a sweetheart and badass at the same time and the same goes for Fiona, I was pleasantly surprised to find a strong woman, taking care of herself and surviving day by day.

It was so great to read about them individually and then getting together with t

Darkest Night is the second book in Megan Erickson's Wired & Dangerous series and I believe it would be more enjoyable if you've read the first one. I didn't read the first book and while I eventually caught up with what was happening I did feel as though I was dropped into the middle of a story and felt a bit lost in the beginning. The author does eventually recap but I still felt as though I was missing a few things. Still I understood enough of what happened that I did enjoy the book.

I enjoyed this next installment in the series. Although Jock did piss me off soooo much. >.> He was so shouty at Fiona, at times, like bro relax. You know what she went through and he was just plain wrong for acting like all would and should be fine once they took down the men who raped her. Like, yes I know he apologized after but damn how you gonna tell someone who was sexually assaulted that they'd basically get over it???

“I want the sun for you,” he said quietly. “I want that more than anything.”

When it comes to growly, gruff, near-silent heroes, Jamison “Jock” Bosh might be one of the best. I loved him—his partial-sentences, his dirt-ridden soul, his half-cyborg demeanor—and I loved him for Fiona.

Darkest Night, the second book in Megan Erickson’s Wired & Dangerous series, is an action-packed ride, complete with intrigue, suspense and maybe a few tears. There were times when I thought I knew what was coming, an

Darkest Night is book two in Megan Erickson's Wired & Dangerous series. While this one wasn't as good as the first IMO, it still follows on a rip-roaring ride filled with emotional hurdles to overcome.

Jock is secretly protecting a woman who is in the crossfire of a previous conflict the hackers uncovered in the first book. A mercenary for hire, he decided to turn to computer hacking, but his old life soon finds his new one. Fiona has been through hell and back and the last thing she needs is he

I enjoyed this sexy, intense and action packed second story in the Wired and Dangerous series! All the characters introduced in the first in series are back, but this one focuses on Jock who has tasked himself with protecting an old friend of Wren's from a shady group of men dealing in human trafficking. Jock and Fiona have a lot of bad memories to overcome on their way to a happy ending but they manage it with their own strengths, and the help of their team.

I love Jock and his protectiveness towards Fiona and the connection between them is visible from the first moment.

* The storyline continues from the previous book but it still can be read as a standalone. Nice progression and some action.
* I feel like I know all the characters and I would love to know their stories. The characters are described with emotions and made realistic with their flaws and insecuriti

Jock gives his woman lots of encouragement, "she nodded and chewed the inside of her cheek. The corner of his mouth tilted up. “Then yeah, babe. You should kiss me.” Jock doesn't like the word no, “you don’t let me in, I come in.” There was a moment of silence, and then a heavy sigh sounded before she flung open the door." Jock can admit when he's wrong, “yeah, and that guy behind you is liking your bikini too much. Rethinking my request on these bikinis, babe.” I liked this book, I loved Jock h ...more

Definitely a bit more gruesome for my tastes, but I did enjoy it.
DARKEST NIGHT is a superb addition to the WIRED & DANGEROUS series, taking us even further into the seedy underbelly of the horrific sex trafficking ring the team started hunting down in the first novel.
