Overview

Determined to overcome a difficult past, Erica Hathaway learns early on how 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. The only thing she didn't prepare for was going weak in the knees over an arrogant and gorgeous investor who's seemingly determined to derail her presentation.

Billionaire and rumored hacker Blake Landon has already made his fortune in software, and he's used to getting what he wants with very little resistance. Captivated by Erica's drive and unassuming beauty, he's wanted nothing more since she stepped into his boardroom. Determined to win her over, he breaks down her defenses and fights for her trust, even if that 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.

Meredith Wild’s “Hardwired” is better than “50 Shades of Grey”! It’s super sexy and the leading man, Blake Landon, isn’t as obnoxious and emotionally shutoff as Christian Grey. The sex scenes are plentiful and mmm…mmm…good! Erica is a loveable girl who’s been hurt, but she’s still able to put it all out there once they’re in private! The story line is well thought out and detailed. With a full ensemble of charact

This book was epic. It was a fresh change from all the erotica I’ve been reading. Don’t get me wrong – there’s plenty of hot stuff in here... They have sizzling chemistry and I enjoyed reading every part of this book!

    4.5 Stars Hardwired by Meredith Wild is a love a story and so mu

    4.5 Stars
    Hardwired by Meredith Wild is a love a story and so much more. The book is told in first person by Erica Hathaway; she is a fresh graduate from Harvard University, entrepreneur of her own Internet start-up fashion site–the company that she has poured her life into imagining and creating out of nothing. The company is her passion. She is alone in the world except for her mom’s best friend Maria and her two business partners, Allie and Sid.




    Enter Blake Landon; he literally bumps into Erica, and the sensual sparks fly. Sexy and devilishly handsome, he is every woman’s fantasy man. The bump is short and sweet, but it leaves Erica with fantasy material, as the girl has no time for a social life. Psst, he is a billionaire control freak but a likeable billionaire control freak. He is going to have problems with ‘all career’ Erica and that is just how it is going to be. Her company is her single-minded focus, and she is a driven individual; she doesn’t have time for a man. So begins the journey of Erica and Blake meeting.




    What I like about this book is that the plot was multifaceted. First you had the story line of Erica and her partners trying to get capital to grow their business. Erica and her partners Sid and Allie are having growing pains. They are all newly graduated from Harvard and expected to make their lives in the big bad non-academic world of real life. Each of the partners aren’t just cardboard cut out place holders in for the main romance plot. They are three-dimensional characters who have their own lives. Sid isn’t as fleshed out as Allie, but I expect that to happen as the series progresses.




    Then, of course, you have the love story between Blake and Erica. No, this isn’t ‘I fall at your feet and worship you because you are a billionaire time’ for Erica. This is ‘I fight tooth and nail to ignore the pull for the billionaire and stand up for myself time’ for Erica. Hey, the girl is a scotch drinker, and I expected nothing less. If she would have drank one of those fruity drinks, then all bets were off. Now I just need to know her brand to know how committed I will be to Erica. Yes, I’m a Scotch snob. Sue Me.




    Then there was a very interesting plot twist in the book revolving around Erica’s past, and guess what? I am not going to spoil it for anyone. But boy, it is a big blow-up-the-book type twist. This was an enjoyable book with characters I can’t wait to read more about, as there is a sequel coming entitled Hardpressed.

    2 Stars. Book + Reviews = Disappointed!

    I purchased this book because B&N showed it in the "Customers Who Bought This Also Bought" section. I enjoyed Shayla Black''s novels and the Fifty Shades Trilogy (lacked writing skills, but it was entertaining) and books similar to this genre, so the high ratings and positive feedback about this novel enticed me.

    I was disappointed from beginning to end. It wasn't anything refreshing, in fact, it felt like a copycat version of Fifty Shades. Rich guy with issues, young girl with issues - it's been done many times before. Also, the characters and their relationship felt rushed. Erica seemed bipolar - one minute she lusts for Blake, then she despises him...it's a smorgasbord of shallow emotions that left me confused. If you really want to read this, I suggest purchasing the Nook version so you don't waste your money on the paperback.

    Happy reading! =)

    Do not believe reviews

    This was a watered down version of Fifty Shades. I was disappointed by the writing. The story copied elements from Fifty but to me could not capture the feeling of passion. Okay read.

    Nook's fault, not the author's

    When I came to page 20, right before the page break, I noticed that the a line continued off the page and apparently a bunch happened that I've missed because after the break, they're discussing the fun night they had. I really wish i could sewer exactly what they were talking about.

    anxious for the next installment

    The character relationship is strained and left me wondering if sexual attraction is enough to base a relationship on. I love how the characters walls started to come down. I would have liked more character building to appreciate the dynamics. Main character seems beyond naive in her actions. Dispite all that I am beyond anxious to see where the author chooses to take these two.

    Life after 50 shades

    I am new to the reading hobby and fell in love with the 50 Shades Of Grey trilogy. Desperate to continue my new obsession for sexy romance series I attempted this book. I have to say this book, though similar to the intense passion that two people can feel for each other, is still very different from 50 Shades. I do plan to continue reading the series, though I did find some areas somewhat a bore (probably due to it being more realistic). The sex scenes are not as descriptive and intense as 50 Shades, but do keep my attention. Overall a very good book. I just wish I had read this series before I read 50 Shades. I feel that if I had I would have better appreciated it for what it is and not had felt the need to compare the two.

    Good read

    I enjoyed reading thebook but to be honest I didn't enjoy 7 dollars worth. Maybe if the books were longer told more per book. It does rope you in but by the time you get really interested it over got to buy a newbook :(

    Great

    Really enjoyed this one. The characters and the story were well developed and the writing was very good. The background story was quite original, setting it apart from the stereorypical billionaire-meets-poor-girl type of romance. The heroine was smart and independent, which was a welcome departure from the lacklustered heroines of most romance books. Add to that the suspense surrounding the primary and secondary characters, and you get an intriguing plot intertwined with a scorching romance that keeps you turning pages. I already bought the sequel book and look forward to reading it.

    I am so sad that I bought this book. Good marketing on this book, I will give them that. But painful to read. Please don't spend your money on this, you will wish you didn't.

    Not what you think

    This is not fifty shades of grey. Yes blake is a controling rich guy who likes bdsm but thats were the similarities end. Although it wasnt what i expected i fell in love with the charaters. It was a good book the only problem i had was that the walls they built keeping others out came down way to fast.
