Determined to overcome a difficult past, Erica Hathaway learns early on to make it on her own. Days after her college graduation, she finds herself face to face with a panel of investors who will make or break her fledgling startup.

Billionaire and rumored hacker Blake Landon has already made his fortune in software, and he’s used to getting what he wants. Captivated by Erica’s drive and unassuming beauty, he’s wanted nothing more than to possess her since she stepped into his boardroom. Determined to win her over, he breaks down her defenses and fights for her trust, even if it means sacrificing a level of control he’s grown accustomed to.

But when Blake uncovers a dark secret from Erica’s past, he threatens not just her trust, but the life she’s fought so hard to create

About The Author
Meredith Wild picked up her first romance novel at the tender age of twelve, and shortly after put pen to word processor and made her first attempt at writing a love story inspired by those she so enjoyed reading well past her bedtime.

Her dream of writing took a back seat to college, parenthood and eventually entrepreneurship, which led her into the fast-paced and male-dominated high tech industry.  With enough life experience for a few lifetimes, she now devotes her hours to writing contemporary adult romance, with a hint of kink.
Her debut novel Hardwired tells the story of billionaire bad boy, Blake Landon, and the object of his obsession, strong-willed tech startup CEO, Erica Hathaway. Hardwired will be the first of the Hardwired Series, while writing is underway for the second installment, Hardpressed.

When she isn’t writing or mothering, Meredith can be found sunbathing with an adult beverage.

My Review


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.
If you are not into the whole rich alpha male characters and similar storylines to 50shades and so on I guess this really isnt the book for you!Every character is different and so I don't think there is any point in comparing them or hating on the book because of it.

So this book is in female POV so yeah all in Erica's POV which is great but still I wish it had some male POV so I could understand Blake more.He is pretty mysterious and confusing at times, it would have been fab to see things his way.Hopefully in the next book his character will be explored more and become more open as I felt he was pretty closed off in this one.

Erica is a just graduated Harvard alumni that is the founder and operator of Clozpin, an online social/fashion site.She launched the site with the help of her friends who all seem to be moving on to other things but this is her dream she wont let it go.
When she is out with her late mother best-friend, someone who has become a mother figure to her she runs smack bang into a hot mysterious stranger..

"Are you all right?"
His voice vibrated through me.My knees weakened a little at the sensation.His arm tightened around my waist in response, bringing our bodies infinitely closer.

When she arrives at arrives at a very important meeting to help get Clozpin up and running with more traffic and audience her nerves are all over the place.And then in walks the mysterious stranger that she ran into. Oh and it gets worse he decides to put her on the spot with question after question and his arrogant behaviour irritates Erica to no end.
Blake Landon always gets what he wants and when he spots Erica Hathaway he is intrigued and captivated by her drive and ambition. She isn't some easy woman though which only makes Blake want her more.I hate it when in book the women pushes the guy away too much its like C'mon you know you will get with him in the end, is this all necessary?

"Baby, this is who I am.I'm hardwired this way.And if I'm trying to take control over the situation, please understand that I have very solid reasoning for it."

I think Erica's best friend Alli kind of pushed her away at times I get it but she should have been more open and it felt like whilst Erica was being pushed away from her friend she was then pushing Blake away and I was like omg stop it!

"Clothes, off," I ordered, directing him with my index finger..."Shouldn't we talk about this?"..."Did I stutter? Clothes. Off." I cocked my head, daring his to argue.

80-90% a lot changes and you are like whaatt? ohhh this is great give me more and you just need to know more by the ending!
When past traumas and present issues clash things could take a turn for the worse.
Blake decides to look into Erica's past and finds some crucial stuff, little does he know that this could put Erica in danger.Trying to protect Erica isn't that easy and then things about Blake's past are revealed. There is a whole lot more than meets the eye..
