In Hardpressed, the highly anticipated second book of the Hacker Series that began with Hardwired, Blake and Erica face threats that put both their love and their lives on the line.
Despite Blake Landon’s controlling ways, the young and wealthy hacker finally won the trust of the woman he loves. Internet entrepreneur Erica Hathaway broke down the walls that kept her from opening her heart and her business to Blake.
Ready to start this new chapter in her life, Erica is determined not to let anything come between them, even if that means giving Blake back some of the control he craves in and out of the bedroom.
But when demons from her past threaten their future, Erica makes a decision that could change their lives forever.
Hardpressed is the second book in the Hacker Series and is a fast-paced, sexy, and thrilling read! I was pleasantly surprised by this series and loved the inventive plot.
Erica is smart but vulnerable and I loved the fact that she started her own business. Although we also have a super-sexy hero, Blake is different from the usual billionaire bad boys. Yes, he’s domineering and controlling, but this story has so much more to it than the hot-as-hell chemistry between Erica and Blake.
Erica is trying to build her business while fighting demons from her past. She wants to do things on her own but Blake is compelled to try and assist her both with her business, but with other external forces that threaten both of them, both personally and on a professional level. The steam factor is high and the sex scenes between Blake and Erica are HOT.
This book is very well-written, and also has a great cast of supporting characters. I hope that Blake’s brother and Erica’s best friend get their own story! The story doesn’t exactly end on a cliffhanger, but the drama is definitely left open for the third installment in the series, Hardline. This is a very fresh, sexy, well-written, and enjoyable series so far.
