Asher “The Hunter” Hunt left black hat hacking for the safer work of IT security three years ago and hasn’t looked back. He’s a law-abiding citizen now, trying to forget the mistakes he made in the past. His latest job deals with a mortgage company, and even though they sent a burly security guard along, Asher doesn’t need anyone’s protection. He’s too much of a geek to be ...more

White hats, bodyguards and grifters, oh my!

I really enjoyed this book! REALLY enjoyed it. Asher Hunt, aka The Hunter is a white hat hacker with a grey past, but he's trying to stick to the straight and narrow now. Being busted by the FBI and coping a deal made Asher reevaluate his priorities and a broken heart made him reevaluate his loyalties so now he takes legit IT jobs where he hacks a client's security to find the holes in their system. Totally legit right? There's nothing shady about being

What a great story line for a book.
Asher is a hacker, back on the straight and narrow, hired to test a company's security.
Connar is the personal security that has been hired to watch over the hacker.
Working together constantly leads to a tentative friendship until Asher discovers what he is truly doing and they have to work together to fix things.
I really enjoyed the plot of the story. At some points, things felt a little rushed as though we had to get to the next point in a certain amount of w

Black hat hacker turns into a good guy. Asher is all about the safe, legal paycheck these days. When he’s hired to hack a mortgage company’s computer system, he figures a piece of cake. Why he needs a bodyguard, he isn’t sure.

Connar is still looking for his niche in life after the military. Babysitting some hacker isn’t really it. But the hacker does tick off all his check boxes for his type. But Asher is his job, so maybe not a good idea.

The job Asher has been hired to do isn’t what it seems a

I really enjoyed this book and I think it is a great start for this new series. It is well-written, fast-paced and I loved all of the twists and turns in the story as it kept me engaged until the end. Asher is an intriguing character with a lot of depth and Connar is also a great character but I wanted more background information on him. Connar and Asher are strangers who are hired for a job and when they find out they are being played and set-up by their employer they decide to fight back. Both ...more

This is the first book in The Robin Hood Job Series. This is a great book the writing was good. There are a few places that I would’ve liked more detail. But overall, I thought it was a wonderful read. The plot was entertaining and it was steady throughout the book. I found the story and characters likeable. The characters were developed and thought out. Connar James and Asher “The Hunter” Hunt are the MC’s of this book. There was humor, hackers, a conman, an RV, computers, Chinese food, a Post ...more

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

I liked this story but there was something missing for me and I’m not sure what it was. Asher is hoping for an easy paycheck but when he realizes how the man who hired him is trying to frame him it becomes a whole lot more complicated. Connar hasn’t found where he fits since getting out of the military, he is looking for adventure but can’t find the right amount or kind.

Asher and Connar have lots of chemistry in bed but have trouble talking o

Such a cool take on the Robin Hood theme! Asher is a computer guy/former hacker who was hired to do a legal hacking job to test a company's internet security. Connar is the gorgeous bodyguard who is hired to help Asher out if needed. Of course nothing turns out like it is supposed to, and Asher gets pulled back into the hacker world he tried to leave.

I liked the romance and relationship between Asher and Connar. Connar was very serious about his job, but longed for adventure of some sort. While

This is the first book I have read by Tami Veldura, and I enjoyed the story quite a bit. The blurb was reminiscent of the basis for the show Leverage, of which I am a huge fan and so was a big draw for me. It is a relatively quick and rather fun read. Connar and Asher are opposites in just about every way, but are drawn to each other from the start. Of course, that doesn't mean things are easy or that they can communicate very well, so there are quite a few bumps in the road. While I thought the ...more

Intricate plot and fast paced action, create a page turner you will enjoy! A romance and so much more!! I was immediately pulled into this story and never came up for air. What a great roller-coaster of a ride that got me caring about the characters and rooting for them to take down the bad guys.

Asher and Connar are both intense and strong men who chase a bit of adrenaline rush in their lives. Each find that rush in very different ways, however as the story progresses they find a commonality th

This is a very enjoyable story that is a great start to a new series. Great storyline that is fast-paced with twists and turns but flows smoothly. Asher and Connar are total opposites but they click together very well and they have great chemistry. Now if they could just find a way to open up and make it work out of bed as well as it does in bed, that would be perfect! As they work together to unravel the scam that Asher has unknowingly been dragged into, will they figure out a way to get their ...more

Love the color. Loved the blurb. So I took a chance and enjoyed this story. The beginning moved a bit slow for me and I wasn't sure what was going on but then it picked up speed and just kept moving along. Asher and Connar were good together. Slow burn. Interesting internal monologues. Definitely enjoyed the secondary characters. I will definitely read book 2. will it be more of Asher and Connar - I hope so! or Axel? ...more

Much more than simply an excuse for a male-male romp, MX Vendura's novel has a plot involving a hacker con that is enlightening and entertaining. Beyond the feisty main characters, the team is delineated well, as are the marks. Full of action, this is a great read. ...more
A m/m action/adventure/suspense story, featuring hackers, who were portrayed in a reasonably realistic fashion. The writing didn’t fully grab me, it’s a decent story though.

Freebie from author.
