Their love story began in Heart-Shaped Hack. Join Kate and Ian for the thrilling conclusion in White-Hot Hack.
When cybercriminals doxed undercover hacker Ian Bradshaw and forced him to flee, he begged Kate Watts for forgiveness and vowed never to hurt her again. He also convinced her to marry him, and when their idyllic summer on Roanoke Island comes to an end, the newlyweds relocate to a secluded home deep in the heart of Virginia’s horse and wine country. Ian still struggles with boundaries, but he keeps Kate’s lingerie drawer filled with surprises, and there’s no shortage of number-six kisses. There’s even a fast, new car to replace his beloved Shelby.
Ian promised Kate that life with him would never be boring, but spending her days picking out paint colors and going to Pilates isn’t going to cut it. Meanwhile, Ian discovers that building a white-hat security firm from the ground up seems harder the second time around, and he might have underestimated how much he’d miss the undercover work he walked away from. To make matters worse, the hacktivists are threatening national security, and the task force could really use Ian’s help.
Kate and Ian have always worried that their past would catch up to them, and when faced with the biggest showdown of their lives, they must capitalize on the one thing they excel at most: teamwork. Ian claims no one is a better hacker than him, but in order to triumph, he’ll have to prove it. And if he can’t, he risks losing the woman whose heart he worked so hard to hack.
This is the second and final book in the Kate and Ian series. The first book, Heart-Shaped Hack, can be read as a standalone.
Kate and Ian are back in this sequel to Heart-Shaped Hack. The couple is now married and keeping their identities a secret deep in horse and wine country in Virginia. Kate quickly grows tired of picking out paint chips and other decorations. She convinces Ian to let her help him build up their business. Ian is reluctant though he agrees. Kate convinces Ian to go back on the task force. As they get their life in order will their pasts catch up to them and destroy all they are working for?
In an Oyster Shell – There were a lot more intimate sex scenes in this book and I was super disappointed though the rest of the story was really good.
The Pearls – This was a great conclusion to the story. I felt at the end the story was complete and I was really happy with it.
The conflict in this story was multi-faceted and riveting. There were several subplots at play that kept me on my toes turning page after page.
The characters were dynamic. I love Kate and Ian. They have great chemistry and you can’t help but root for them. There was a great surrounding of supporting characters as well.
The Sand – I had to skim a good part of the book because there were so many sex scenes. I understand they were newlyweds but it didn’t mean I wanted to be privy to all the intimate details. It’s not my style I prefer a more clean romance.
